What’s Up?

So it has been over a month since I’ve written a post and I just don’t know where the time has gone!  Is my baby really 5 months old already?? Is Christmas really 9 days away????? Yes and yes. So here’s what’s up with us lately. Payton turned 4 months and we attempted to do […]

Currently Obsessing.

So since I rarely have time to get dressed these days, and when I do, there’s no time to take a picture, I figured I’d share my current fall must haves without the typical “me wearing them” pictures. Some of these items I’ve already purchased, while others sit patiently on my wish list. And I’ll […]

Me Before You.

In no way am I a pro at motherhood yet, but it is definitely not what I expected. And that’s a good thing. People gave me plenty opinions about what they defined motherhood to be before Payton was born. “You don’t know what love is til you’ve had a child.” Or “Your priorities will change […]

Road Trip.

Tomorrow we are taking Payton on her first overnight road trip and I can’t wait!! We’re going to Dallas for a gender reveal party (can’t wait Mimi!!) and we figured it’d be easier to stay the night since it’s about a 4 hour drive. However, packing and being prepared for this one night get-away is […]

Rollin with my Homie.

Day 3 of my mom not being here to help, and things sure are different. Today started off as what I thought was going to be the worst day, but quickly turned around and has been the best day with P. She woke up around 1 this morning and as hard as I tried, I […]

Flying Solo.

Today, our amazing Mimi flew back home with Papi after being with us for all of Payton’s life (and long before). It’s safe to say, we have mixed emotions about this. On one hand, I knew she couldn’t live with us forever and that one day I’d need to figure out how to keep Payton […]

Team No Sleep.

Payton turned 6 weeks yesterday, and her birthday present to me was a 6 1/2 hour stretch of sleep! Now granted, I didn’t sleep that whole stretch, but it’s a start. I had taken a peak at our Baby Wise book yesterday (which we quickly gave up on soon after she was born) and it […]

Motherhood-Surviving the First 30 Days

Payton just turned one month on August 11th, and honestly, I don’t know how we made it.   Both my husband and my mom have been such a big help, and I couldn’t have done it without them. Seriously. I also couldn’t have done it without these 10 items. Let me tell you why. 1. […]

Pool Time (post baby)

So, you just gave birth to a beautiful baby and your body will never be the same. Who cares? You just made a real life human and carried her/him for over 9 months (whoever says pregnancy only last 9 months has obviously never been pregnant before). But, that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy the last […]

Nursery Rhymes.

Payton’s nursery is my own personal oasis. I’d be lying if I said I decorated it with the thought “what would Payton like?”. I started with the furniture from Bassett and chose to order everything in white. Next, I found the flamingo prints on Etsy and knew this was going to be the inspiration for […]
