Hey loves! I hope everyone had an amazing weekend. Last week was such a whirlwind for us as Brielle came down with a horrible cold and I had a crazy busy work week, so we were all excited to unwind and relax this weekend. I’ll admit, I have a difficult time doing nothing. I get antsy if I sit around too long, and I find I like to keep busy on the weekends with fun family outings, dinner parties or errand running.
It’s official, I’m now a ‘working’ mom. I’m going to be real with you, I’ve always hated this term…it’s always left a bad taste in my mouth. Because the reality is, is that every single mom – regardless of whether they work OUTSIDE of the home or not, still works. So, I guess I should call myself a ‘work outside of the home’ mom, or something.
The truth is, Brielle has always been a brutal sleeper. Unlike her older sister, she has never been a great napper and still wakes throughout the night. So, when Nested Bean contacted me and asked if I would try their Zen Sack (developed to promote a restful sleep), I was hopeful. Brielle has worn sleep sacks since she transitioned out of a swaddle.
Let’s face it, there are so many infant products on the market. Sometimes the over abundance of gadgets, toys, and infant care can make it nearly impossible to figure out what products are worth buying. After going through the infant and baby stage twice, I’m excited to share five of my go-to baby products that I seriously love!
I cannot tell you how excited I am to finally share with you Brielle’s nursery reveal. It’s been a few months in the making, and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. Some of you may be wondering why I decided to “transform” Brielle’s bedroom now…I mean, she is already 18 months old. Well, Brielle was affected by Second Child Syndrome, meaning…I didn’t dedicate the time and energy into creating a beautiful space for her before she was born. Yes, I hung some pictures. Yes, I bought her a new dresser and side table.
