8 Things to Enjoy Before Baby

7 Things That Helped Me Survive Postpartum

Postpartum is no joke, my friends. It can be totally rough and overwhelming if you don’t know what to expect (side note: if you want the no-holds-barred version of what postpartum was really like, I wrote a post about it here). After the birth of my first child, I had a pretty miserable postpartum experience, and during my second pregnancy, I spent a good portion of it dreading those early weeks after my little one arrived. But, now that I’m seven weeks post-birth, I can definitely say that postpartum has been a much better experience this time around thanks to a few key things that I learned my “rookie year”. I wanted to share them in hopes that they might help you have a more enjoyable postpartum as well!

This summer, we got a family pool pass and have been going a few times a week. Now that we’ve been at it for a month or so, I feel like I have a better idea on what to do and how to survive with three little ones at the pool…

Dating My Husband with Baby in Tow

At the start of 2014, I made three goals for the year. One was to spend more “alone time” with my husband. More dates, more conversations, more late nights dedicated to hanging out and spending time together instead of doing dishes or other chores around the house. With three kiddos, alone time is a rarity. From the time he gets home from work until we put our kids to bed, it’s busy, busy, busy! Our Chatty Kathy toddlers and our newborn babe fill our evenings. Both of us are plenty aware of how important time together is for our marriage and for our family. I once heard a saying that went something like, “happy parents = happy kids.” I’m sure there’s some truth to that. Margot is just now 3 months old, and I am proud to say that we’ve actually done a really good job of getting away for some “us” time. Here’s how we do it…
