Ever since transitioning my blog from fashion and beauty content over to more personalized posts I thought I would start a new series called “8 hours” where I share with you snippets of mine and Annabelle’s day! Besides connecting with others, the biggest reason I love to blog/vlog is so I can have memories to look back on in the future and although my days seem short and my nights seem long, I know these tiny moments spent nursing and caring for Annabelle are going to be some of my most treasured ones.
Annabelle decided she wanted to get up bright and early today!
Breakfast time! I’m not going to lie, I barely got one bite after taking this picture and Annabelle wanted to be held so it took me a good hour to finish this toast! Having a baby makes simple things that much longer to complete…even your breakfast.
To be honest, most of my days look just like this…actually it’s typically me in just a nursing bra and shorts sitting on my bed or couch, but no one wants to see that;) Breastfeeding has been the biggest learning curve when it came to motherhood, but it’s been so incredibly worth sticking it out! The moments when she looks up at me after a feed with her belly full and a huge grin on her face makes every hard time worth it.
This is the first time Annabelle fell asleep in her crib so I had to snap a pic! Although I’m far from sleep training her (if I ever do), I thought more time spent in her room would make her feel more comfortable with sleeping on her own in the future. P.S. She only lasted 30 minutes in there!
Daddy came home for lunch today! By far the best part about where we live is that Doug works five minutes from our apartment, which is a huge reason why we don’t want to move. The days where he comes home on his lunch break are the best!
I finally had to sort through Annabelle’s clothes to weed out all her newborn sizes that no longer fit her:( I never understood why Moms were sad when their children grew, but now I totally get it!
5: 00 pm
Time to start dinner! I’m still on my eating healthy kick after falling off the wagon this Sunday by eating fast food. I don’t feel too bad because I believe everything in moderation, but I’m picking back up and eating clean this week!
Today was my day to pamper! Although it usually gets cut short by a fussy baby, I still try and make sure to do a few things each week that make me feel refreshed and put together.
