Post Pregnancy Style

what to wear after birth

Last Friday morning, I grabbed a pair of high waisted Levi's 501s and squealed when I was able to slip them pass my thighs (YES!), then pass my butt (YES!), but when it was time to button around the waist...oh no.

4 Week Old Milestone

I officially smell like spit up milk with a hint of baby poo. Gross, I know, but at least I am being honest....and honestly, I am loving every moment of motherhood even though being a single mother can be difficult.

Tomorrow, baby Elliott will be THREE WEEKS OLD!!!! Mind-blowing (and bittersweet) how quickly he is growing! I wanted to share a snippet of our current baby routine and some of Elliott's likes and dislikes.

My Labor & Delivery Experience

At 11:45 PM on March 24th, 2016, I met the love of my life. The process to meet him was not what I had expected, but was worth every second.

Baby is Overdue: Now What?

Side profile of baby E! His  right hand is covering his eyes :) 

Ok, this isn't cute or funny anymore. My little one is officially 12 days overdue making me 41 weeks and 5 days pregnant. On Tuesday the 14th, I was told that I had an "unfavorable cervix". An induction was scheduled on St. Patricks Day, and as tempting as it was to finally meet my son, I wasn't comfortable proceeding.

Dressing the Bump: 39 Weeks Pregnant

With one day left, I have a feeling baby E might not arrive on his due date (yes, I am crying inside). Although I am getting little impatient...okay, a lot, I try to remind myself to enjoy the last moments of walking around with a basketball belly at 39 weeks and 6 days.
