Lennon’s 5 Month Update

You know the drill… before I share the information via words, let’s look at some pictures of Lennon since his last update! New to Lennon: Since Lennon’s 3 Month Update, we went to Oregon! This was his first time in Portland at Grandma and Grandpa Laughlin’s house. We absolutely loved the weather there, since we…

Lennon’s 3 Month Update

Before we jump right in, let’s look at some pics of how Lennon has grown!!! New to Lennon: The biggest is probably his international traveling experience. Long flights, time changes,  and meeting family! We went to England to meet Auntie Hollie and Uncle Al. Then we headed to Switzerland to meet Auntie J and Uncle…

Lennon’s One Month Update

First of all, I CANNOT BELIEVE IT’S ALREADY BEEN A MONTH! Seems like just yesterday we left the hospital… Time flies when you’re having fun! New to Lennon: We just moved to Austin, TX so we are adjusting to the new apartment, weather, and atmosphere. We are still working on getting 100% moved in, so…

My Natural Birth Story to My 11.5 lb Son

I think it’s important to say that any woman who brings a child into the world is incredible! Whether the delivery be vaginal or cesarean, medicated or not, that woman has sacrificed herself — emotionally and physically — because of the love she has for her child. The main reason why I want to share my…

Why You Should Create a Birth Plan

I am so excited to chat about putting together a Birth Plan. It’s been my favorite thing! As baby’s delivery day approaches, uncertainty settles in stronger. I would imagine it’s not only first-time moms who want to be as prepared as possible, especially since every pregnancy and baby is different. One of the things that…

Packing Baby’s Hospital Bag

Happy Tuesday! With the 37 week mark approaching, I thought it was about time to get my hospital bags prepared! There are so many different things to consider when assembling a hospital bag. For example, how big (approximately) will your baby be or what season are you giving birth in? For me, our son is…

Best Decision of Pregnancy!!

This entire pregnancy I have been in denial that my tummy was actually getting bigger… which is seriously ridiculous! I mean, it’s comparable to putting a basketball under my shirt. Anyway, I continued to wear my normal clothes for as long as possible. I wear my jeans, leggings, and sweaters so I don’t have to…

Body Image in Pregnancy

Today I want to talk about something that is really hard for me to admit. I want to bring it up because there are probably a lot of pregnant women who have the same thoughts, and I think it’s worth sharing that you’re not alone. Pregnancy is one of the hardest things I’ve gone through,…

Baby Registry – What Products and Why?

Happy Friday!!! One of my favorite things that I have put together this pregnancy is my baby registry. This is my first baby, so naturally I did a lot of research about what products were the best and which I could go without. I have spent months putting together my registry – adding, removing, changing…

BH Cosmetics – Product Review

Happy Tuesday, Lovelies!! My first run-in with BH Cosmetics was when I was about 14. I don’t know how I stumbled across their website, but I couldn’t believe how inexpensive the make-up was! At that point in my life, I really only wore eyeshadow. So, I bought the 120 color palette. Lol! I used that…
