So here we are. I’m almost 9 months postpartum. Right after Logan was born, I was very adamant about doing postpartum PT for diastasis recti and pelvic floor health. I had a long labor with Logan and knew that all of this would be really important longterm because of how active I am.
Let me kick this off by saying FED IS BEST. It doesn’t matter HOW a babe is fed. A full baby is a happy baby and that is ALL that matters. You’re doing great mama.
For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been working with Kelley from Serenity Sleepers for the last month to get Logan better rest. She previously was micro-napping (20-30min naps) and wasn’t sleeping through the night. Desperate for sleep myself, we contacted Kelley and got started right away.
I seriously cannot believe that Logan is five months. It’s totally true what they say, “the days are long but the months go by fast.” She’s getting to be such a big girl but let me tell ya, we are feeling the four-month sleep regression HARD right about now.
As I sit here and write this blog post, I’m on the verge of tears. I just finished walking Logan and put her down for a nap. Honest, this may be my most vulnerable blog post yet — I’m putting myself out there in a real, raw and honest way. Why am I doing that? Because sometimes it’s nice to just write it down. For me sometimes it feels therapeutic. And because I know someone out there resonates with me and maybe this post makes them feel a little less alone. The first few months can feel isolating. Especially if you’re far from friends and family like I am.
If you’ve been following along over on Instagram, you know that Logan has been an extra fussy baby. Since birth, she’s had feeding issues, which ultimately resulted in belly issues too. This swirl of circumstances has made her a little colicky. Desperate to try all the things, I think we’ve finally found our groove with her as best we can. She’s not completely fuss-free (b/c what baby actually is!?) but she’s one thousand times better.
Over the weekend I hosted my very first event with Logan Bell. While in Kansas City, we got to host a fun mommy and me workout at Barre3 Kansas City with DuoFit activewear and other venders like Unbakery Juicery + Lauren Alexandra.
Hunting for the perfect baby products can be daunting. There is SO MUCH on the market these days. I know when I was crafting my registry I turned to friends and family members for suggestions but the truth is every baby is different.
Chance and I don’t have cable so we’re avid Netflix and Hulu watchers. We rely heavily on our Roku. Since having Logan, we’ve watched our share of new shows so I thought I’d suggest FOUR series for summer viewing. I tried to choose some that are obviously “lesser-known” because let’s be honest, we’ve all watched Stranger Things 3 and 13 Reasons Why. So without further rambling …
Okay, let’s be honest. Vacation is for relaxation. But if you’re like me, I’m always consciously finding ways to maintain a healthy lifestyle even when I’m on vacation because I just FEEL better. I got really good at this last year since I never had a home base. Our life was constantly about being on-the-go.
