May/June is a crazy time for us between our Birthdays, Anniversary, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. Since this year it’s Jeff’s first Father’s Day I knew I wanted to do something special for him. One problem… he never wants anything and since his Birthday was just two weeks ago I was a little stuck. Then I started thinking a little outside the box, we’d done a few spa days in the past and he always seemed to enjoy them. Now that we’re new parents who didn’t really sleep for the first month, plus he works full time and never really stops to relax, I thought a massage would be the best gift I could give him.
I’m struggling to get myself into a routine with Crosby. I base our days off of her feeding schedule but it changes daily depending on what time she wakes up for the day. Lately it’s anywhere between 6 and 8 am which means I sleep until then too. Before baby I woke up at 5 am every day for work so this is kind of unlike me. I think I’m going to try to start getting up at a set time each day even if she’s not awake to get stuff done. Any moms have any tips or advice?
But anyway, I wanted to share some instagram pictures from the past month. Lots of baby and spring fun. Looking forward to the summer months ahead! Just a reminder, you can always shop these via the ‘Shop My Instagram’ tab on the top of this page.
One of my favorite parts of being pregnant was dressing my bump, especially as it got bigger! I really embraced tight stretchy dresses and tops – both things I don’t normally wear. Now that I’m not pregnant I find myself missing the bump a bit and wanted to share a few of my favorite pregnancy outfits.
It’s so hard to believe it’s the last week of January! I feel like I’ve been all over the place this month from the Golden Globes to baby showers and lots in between. And now that there’s not much time left before baby I’ll be busy making sure everything is ready for her arrival in March. Here are some highlights from my instagram this past month. Our weather was all over the place but this past weekend was so nice I was able to wear this dress to host my best friend’s baby shower. Here’s to hoping the warm weather sticks around for a bit!
Thank you so much for reading – have a great start to your week!
