Nursery Inspiration | Oceanic Elegance

I’m so excited to have finally dreamed up some inspiration for baby Blair’s nursery. Since neither Jonathan or I are very fond of pink hues, it was a little hard to think of something that would be suitable for a little baby girl’s room. We definitely don’t want to go overboard, but create a look […]

(I just went back and read your first post and had a comment to make, but figured it would be seen here more likely than there. Ahem. ๐Ÿ˜‰

On book recommendations, I really can’t walk by without mentioning BabyWise. My mother has always sworn by it (and she had six babies), and while I’ve no experience there yet, I know several other women who have found it to be an excellent resource. I know there is some controversy surrounding it, or people are afraid to follow the methods, but from what I’ve experienced, it works.
Just thought I’d throw that out there – I hope it’s of some assistance to you during this beautiful new season, and blessings on you and your lovely little lady! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hello! I just stumbled across your blog through a friend of mine–love it! And I can’t not say, just really quickly, no matter how you decide to parent, please feed your baby whenever she is hungry. THAT is where the controversy lies within babywise. Every baby is different. Every baby’s metabolism is different. Every momma’s milk is different. Some babes need to eat more frequently than others, some just need the comfort of knowing momma is there throughout the night. Listen to your baby, you cannot spoil her by answering her cries, feeding on demand, and just plain old loving the heck out of her, I promise ๐Ÿ˜‰ Congratulations!

15 week update

Technically, this is at 14.5 weeks, but hey I probably won’t take bump photos every week. Besides, the bump is actually smaller this week it seems!  How big is baby: Navel Orange | 15 Weeks 3 days How I’m feeling: I’m still feeling pretty well these days. I’ve had a few flare up of nausea (and the […]
