5 Things I’m Horrible With At Being A Mom

Adore too much: This is a hard one for me. Trying not to gloat about how cute Ethan is. I know most parents know their baby is cute but Ethan! He is what perfection looks like in a baby. His morning smiles, his little baby coos and laughs. Ethan is the most happiest baby I've... Continue Reading →

Not So Much Breastfeeding Journal

I've always struggled when it came to producing breast milk. It was hard! I knew I wanted to be a breastfeeding mama but the struggle was real. Delivering early, I wasn't prepared and I didn't do enough research. I didn't know how much effort was put into the simple task. You see mothers all around you having no... Continue Reading →

First Outdoor Adventures

It was a perfect beautiful day to be at Maris Farm with the smell of food, pumpkins lined up in the field, hayrides going, the... Continue Reading →

A cousin is born

When I got the news that my sister was at the hospital going into labor with her sweet baby girl, I told myself that I could wait until the weekend to travel so I wouldn't be traveling alone with Ethan. I tried really hard to force myself to wait but I just couldn't. Apparently the phrase,... Continue Reading →

Our first touch

Nothing hurts a mother more than seeing her tiny brand new baby be taken away. Especially before I got a chance to hold or kiss my sweet baby. As I laid there on the table unable to move while the doctors spent another 30 minutes repairing the damage that was done to my body, I... Continue Reading →
