Check out the cute baby snuggling that’s been going on around here.
As you can imagine, it’s insanely busy now that we’ve added a newborn to the mix. Between the everyday needs of 4 kids, the start of the new school year, and our first soccer season, I have zero time for blogging (or even showering for that matter). Looking back, I can’t believe I thought I was busy when I had only my first baby.
Despite my lack of time, I have a growing mental list of blog posts just begging to be written. I’ve had countless insights since the baby delivery. Can you believe I delivered at the hospital this go around? The experience was completely different than the home and birth center births I had with my other babies. I can’t wait to tell you why I chose the hospital this time in the posts, “Home vs Birth Center vs Hospital: Where should you deliver your baby?” and “Team Natural or Team Epidural?”
Now that little Lucy is here, I’ve rediscovered what you really need to stock up on for a new baby. We often buy so much useless junk and rarely have the necessities on hand when we need them. You can get the scoop in “New Baby Essentials – Natural First Aid & More”.
Two days post-partum I had to rally to get my boys to their first soccer practice. "Soccer Mom 101" gives you the tips I wish I had before starting the season.
Oh and what I’m most excited about? My get-it-back workout plan! Even though I’m only two week post-partum and not six, I’ve already outlined three months of serious butt-kicking, waist whittling glory. I’m going to lay it all out for you in case you want to follow it with me in “Baby Weight? What Baby Weight?”
I have a hilarious story about my first attempt at a cleaning schedule. Lemme tell ya, there not all butterflies & roses like most posts make them out to be. But after a few weeks of playing with it, I think I’ve found some ways to make a cleaning schedule work for you and not against you. You’ll hear all about it in “The Reality of a Cleaning Schedule”.
In the meantime, here’s my best recipe of the week. It's one of the many great grill recipes I have to tell you about & the perfect salad for cooler weather. I actually can’t take any credit for this because my husband has completely taken over the cooking since a few months before baby arrived. Thank God he’s pretty great like that. I can’t believe I gave him the total run around wasn’t so sure about him when we first met. Speaking of, that’s another upcoming post, “How to Really Chose a Boyfriend (A Guide to my 20-Something Self)”.
Stay tuned for all of that and more! I’m looking forward to being back in touch again.
How about you guys? What have you been up to?
