Week 7 & 8: Peter Bennett

I didn’t get a chance to write last week. Things got crazy and we went on a trip. Week seven I really tried to start a schedule: feeding at the same time each day rather than focusing on the naps . This worked, to an extent, for two days. It did give me a bit […]

Week 6: Peter Bennett

SIX WEEKS! Time is passing this quickly and slowly simultaneously. Everyone told me that at 6 weeks there would be such a sigh of relief, because I had made it through the fog. There is a great truth to that, and a huge part of it is the developmental leap that occurs. Because he’s becoming […]

Week 5: Peter Bennett

Anxiety. That is my word of the month. I have never really been an anxious person. I have been stressed out, but this is a whole new ball game. I know it’s probably a new mom thing mixed with my personalty, but I constantly feel like the worst is going to happen. He’s going to […]

Week 4: Peter Bennett

Christmas week. Baby boy is a month old today. I wish I could say “where has the time gone?” but my reality is, time has moved at a snails pace this past month. To be honest, it’s all kind of a haze and I don’t remember large parts of it. Time has been swallowed up […]

Saturday Podcast Round up: 3 pods I’m loving this week

Here’s what I’m loving this week: Invisibilia– I went back and listened from 2016 on. I don’t know how I missed this podcast, but I’m completely down the rabbit hole now and can’t stop listening. It’s a beautiful look at the invisible through the eyes of empathy. If you haven’t tried it out yet- DOWNLOAD […]

Maternity capsule wardrobe

I have never been good at the capsule wardrobe (though it is one of my goals for next year.) But, during pregnancy I was able to curate a usable capsule that I thought I would share with whoever is looking. I think it is really easy to get sucked into “cute bump dresses” or “jumpsuits,” […]

Pregnancy: morning sickness and restless leg tips.

Let’s talk morning sickness. Or should I call it “all day and all night sickness”?? I told a friend of mine the other day, “I feel like I have had the flu for a year.” My morning sickness lasted 35 weeks, after week 24 it lightened up a BIT, but the rocking/nausea/vomiting lasted up until […]
