5 Months: Eating Solids….And Formula

Well, lets get to straight to it. Layla is now on formula. I felt that my supply had gone down. That she wasn’t getting bigger. I ignored my inner voice and listened to what I wanted to hear. Google, and other moms said she was fine. But I knew better. So I finally asked her … Read More

4 Months And Rolling!

4 Months And Rolling!

Lots of changes this month! Layla went from hating tummy time to rolling all over the place. She can’t roll back over yet, but she’s getting there.

Layla’s 1st Valentine’s Day

My husband asked Layla to be his Valentine. I’m pretty sure I heard a yes, or some sort of squirrel noise, come out of her. To commemorate this event, I asked my husband to do a quick photo shoot with Layla this morning. He said no. Why would he say no? Well last night my … Read More

Was I Just Weight Shamed By My Doctor?

Hello! I did not mean to abandon my blog, but taking care of a baby, (especially when solely breastfeeding), is crazy time consuming and exhausting!

Happy 1 Month Layla! We survived 30 days….

That’s right, it’s been a month since I gave birth to this little human. It’s also been a month since I showered without hearing a baby cry as soon as I get out. It’s been a month since I ate a meal in peace, instead of shoveling it in my mouth in an effort to … Read More
