Instant Pot Oatmeal Recipe Review

For those who haven’t heard of an Instant Pot yet, or haven’t tried one, it is THE BEST THING EVER. I swear it has changed my life completely. Basically it is a crock pot that works much, much faster through pressure cooking. You get the same great taste as the crock pot but you don’tContinue reading “Instant Pot Oatmeal Recipe Review”

Valentine’s Day sensory bin

I’ve been wanting to try this activity for awhile but I wanted to wait until Nora was out of the “put everything in her mouth” stage. She’s been much better lately and she’s so curious so what better time than a holiday! I love doing theme activities. Nora absolutely loves food so I decided toContinue reading “Valentine’s Day sensory bin”

Baby B’s 2 month update

So I’m officially a horrible mother…to my second child at least. How did I not think to do this post last week when I was looking for ideas? *face palm* Baby B is officially 10 weeks old! It seems like the time has passed by so quickly but at the same time how has itContinue reading “Baby B’s 2 month update”

#this_is_postpartum

I saw this on Instagram and got the courage up to join the movement and support fellow mamas! This is my postpartum…(summed up of course! There’s so much more I could say) It’s the XL jogging pants you keep wearing because it’s the only thing that fits comfortably. It’s the throw up/ booger stained shirtContinue reading “#this_is_postpartum”

GROWING instead of CHANGING.

I was going to talk about how crazy the holidays were with our two under two but as I sat here thinking about what to write, I realized I shouldn’t be complaining. Yes, it was chaotic but we are so overly blessed to be surrounded by so much family and friends, and you know what?Continue reading “GROWING instead of CHANGING.”

Introducing Baby B

Lets try this again…even though Baby B is already 4 weeks old, he still deserves an introductory post… I know this post would have been written differently had I written it 3 weeks ago like originally planned, but having two babies is proving to be a lot more difficult than I anticipated. So Baby BenjaminContinue reading “Introducing Baby B”

38 weeks with Baby B

Has it really been 3 weeks since I last posted? Oops… I guess life just gets in the way sometimes. Between all the hospital visits and Nora not sleeping…I don’t even know where the last few weeks have gone. Like one day it was fall and I was planning on taking Nora’s fall pictures andContinue reading “38 weeks with Baby B”

A Letter to my Daughter on her First Birthday

Where have the last 12 months gone? I can’t believe I spent the last 365 days watching your every move. Literally. I didn’t want to miss a thing. I still remember your first breath like it happened 5 minutes ago. The anticipation as we waited for your first cry. The first time you latched onContinue reading “A Letter to my Daughter on her First Birthday”

Overwhelmed

I had so many plans for this weeks blog post. I wanted to either finish Nora’s birth story and finally get it posted, I wanted to write a “Letter to my Daughter on her First Birthday,” or something else special to symbolize the day. But of course I had the busiest week like ever. AContinue reading “Overwhelmed”
