Update | Meet the Baby | One Month | Mom and Baby

Happy Halloween! How on EARTH has this little baby been with us for a month! (Five and a half weeks when this is published!) My heart can’t take it.

Must Haves | Third Trimester

I was quite surprised proofreading this trimester must haves. There wasn’t any food, and it mainly consists of clothing and sanitary items. If you would have told me I’d be writing this post talking about these items, I would have turned red in the face and denied it.

My how pregnancy changes things!

What items have gotten you through the FINAL trimester??

Baby Preparation | What’s In My Hospital Bag?

The time has come to discuss all things related to the Hospital Bag!

I had a very small emergency bag that I took with me to our quick, unexpected runs, but this was the real deal. The “you can come in, but you aren’t leaving without a baby” bag.

Today, I’m sharing with you how I knew what to bring, what I actually packed, and where I got some of the items.

I’m curious…
What did you pack in your hospital bag as a first time (delivering) mom-to-be? Did you over pack? Under pack? Let me know!

If you are a first-time parent to be, what classes did/will you participate in?

If you are a seasoned parent, what classes did you take or find most helpful?

Today was going to be all about the Baby Shower from last week, but when I sat down to write this came out instead.

I figured I’d share let this publish instead to remind myself that getting through “bad days” is possible.

This is a much more personal post and if you are not interested in reading it, that’s okay. I will see you next week!

Happy Wednesday!
