The first few weeks with a newborn are rough and nothing can really prepare you for it. When I was pregnant everyone told me to get all the sleep I could because once the baby arrived I’d be a zombie. And I did because I never had a problem sleeping or got to an uncomfortable stage in my pregnancy – I was lucky. However, once Crosby arrived I turned into that sleep deprived zombie everyone warned me about. It was hard to see it as temporary and imagine life on the other side.
Crosby is 4 months old today! Where has the time gone?! Everyone tells you it goes by so fast but it’s unreal when you’re experiencing it. I feel like we were just bringing her home from the hospital. She’s been so fun this past month and is more interactive every day! She just started noticing Mackie and I can’t wait to see their relationship develop.
Today Crosby is three months old and I feel like we’re finally getting into a routine. One huge thing that changed this last month was I finally started taking her out on my own and now I feel comfortable and confident to head out on little excursions with her during the day. She also started sleeping through the night, (!!!) so I feel like I regained some sanity back there. I wanted to share all of our current favorite products from the last month.

The first thing Crosby ever wore was a Pampers Swaddler – they’re the #1 diaper choice by hospitals! Flash forward eight weeks (and a lot of diapers) and now I can really see why hospitals trust Pampers for newborn babies.
At first, starting a baby registry seemed really daunting. There were so many new items we needed and I didn’t really know where to start. For a few months Jeff and I were both researching products and narrowing down what we thought we’d need. We also talked to a lot of friends with kids and consulted Pinterest. I know our baby isn’t here yet, but I’m feeling pretty prepared “stuff” wise and wanted to share my guide to registering.
