Monograms are a huge weakness for me. It really doesn’t matter what the item is, if it’s monogrammed, I want it! However, since getting married a few years ago I’m always a little lost on which letters I should use. Middle name? Maiden name? Or just AJ? I’ve actually done it all three ways which is probably super confusing, but I like to have options. With this bag I went with my middle name, which is Constance (my mom’s name) if you’re curious.
Back to basics. Like I mentioned yesterday, lately I’ve been majorly gravitating towards jeans and t-shirts. Sometimes simple outfits just feel the best and there are lots of different ways you can style them together.
When I was pregnant one of the questions I was asked the most was if I was going to nurse my baby. I always answered, of course, what could be so hard?! I was so naive then. HA! Nothing prepared me for how hard breast feeding was. It’s really a full time job between learning how, getting the baby to latch and how often you have to do it, especially at first. Now that I’m three months in I feel like I’m finally starting to get it.
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.
