The mornings are cool, the days are hot, and the air is full of pollen here in Houston. This means one thing. Spring is on the horizon! I typically dread the Spring because of allergies and yellow dusted vehicles, but I have to say, after wiping tiny runny noses 2 straight months, 3 days of being shut in due to icy roads, and nursing a sick husband back to life from the stomach flu, I am so over wither this year! As I have been huddled in at home for various reasons I have been working on a few projects that I am completely stoked to share this Spring, beginning with the launch of the Sideline Socialite T-Shirt Shop!
Although I have to wake up a few times throughout the night I have learned the value of getting my kids in a good bedtime routine to set them, and me, up for success. Because Hendrix is new in town, I want to share 5 steps for a good bedtime routine that are setting him (and us) up for more restful nights.
I know at times it can be difficult to connect with a baby who can’t talk and has a limited range of emotions, but I am convinced that they are soaking any and everything up and want nothing more but to be close and to connect with you. Today I am sharing 3 ways to connect with your infant.
As Valentine’s Day approaches, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to get your best girls over and just celebrate being a woman…maybe with a few cocktails, snacks, and a great “girl power” type movie and you have the perfect recipe for a fun Galentine’s Day! Here are 3 Ideas to celebrate with a Galentine’s Party this year.
Breastfeeding and pumping are the hardest, most disciplined things I’ve ever done in my adult life. In my decision to exclusively breastfeed Hendrix I have encountered bleeding and damaged nipples, mastitis, clogged ducts, latching issues, and oversupply all in the first month! I felt compelled to write this post because 1. I wanted to document the journey 2. have found that there is so much solace in knowing you aren’t alone (I’d love for you to feel like you are not alone if you have had difficulty) and 3. I have found so many great resources in my quest to breastfeed like a boss that I want to share with you.
