A New Love

I love, love. I understand what love means, how to walk in love, and how to speak lovingly.  When I met my husband, I learned about a new love. I have never loved someone so much before, and getting married "sealed" our love. My husband knows all there is about me, and loves me anyways.

When my daughter was born almost 5 months ago, I learned about another love. [I really started learning about it the second I found out I was  pregnant]. The moment we heard her cry for the very first time, I'll never forget. This little person has completely changed our lives. I'm still awestruck that she is mine. She was part of me for 9 months. I felt her kicks, punches, and hiccups. I would daydream about what she might look like, and worry about things I had no control over.

Love is one of those emotions that can take you on a roller coaster. It will make you cry tears of happiness, but also sadness. It can make you scream with joy, and in anger. It can make you say things you need to, but also say nothing when needed.

My love towards my daughter makes me so excited to see her grow up, but also sad that she's growing so fast. I get so proud about all her little milestones, like rolling over, that I reminisce about how just a couple months ago, I still had to support her head.

As a new mom, I didn't expect how many times throughout the day that I would look at my baby and think "I can't believe you're mine". I am so blessed to be M's mama.

This new love has made my heart full. I didn't know what I was missing.

Timi & Leslie - Classic Tote - London

Hello! (In my best Adele voice)

I hope you had a great weekend! I hope you are all enjoying the somewhat Spring-like weather. Timi and Leslie sent me two diaper bags to review right after I had my baby girl last July. Life was rough as the beginning, but as I wrote about in my last post, things are slowly getting easier. I was able to write my review on the Jessica bag a few months ago, and now I want to talk about their Classic Tote.


I've been using this bag for about 3 months now, and it has been my go-to. I have 3 diaper bags (I know that you only really need one), but I love how each bag brings a different sense of style. The classic tote is just that, classic. 


Channel timeless sophistication with the Classic Tote bag from Timi & Leslie! It is made from smooth, durable nylon with vegan faux leather accents (PVC free) and custom hardware in a gunmetal finish. The Classic Tote bag has a roomy interior with multiple compartments to fit all of your and baby's essentials. A…

Timi & Leslie - Jessica 7-Piece Diaper Bag Set

Hi everyone!

I feel like Mommy-hood makes you take unexpected breaks, but they are always needed! My little girl is growing like crazy, and I can't believe she's almost 4 months old!

This review is for an amazing Timi & Leslie diaper bag! They sent me two bags to review, and this review is on the Jessica bag in Taupe! I've been using this bag nonstop the last 4 months, and it honestly holds everything!

There are a ton of pockets that keeps everything organized (which I need, and also my husband), but it's also so versatile! It has so many extras that make it stand out from just an ordinary diaper bag:


 A cross body, adjustable detachable strap so you can wear it hands free whenever you need to;  Our specially designed changing pad with a front mesh pocket where you can store your diapers, wipes and creams when you need to make a quick diaper change trip;  A stylish clutch that you can use as your purse (who wants to carry a purse and a baby bag?) with interior cr…

4Moms - Mamaroo

Hello!

I've had my eye on the MamaRoo since I found out I was pregnant. It was on our registry, but unfortunately we didn't receive it as a gift. While it looked amazing, we just couldn't justify spending over $200 on it. 
At around 5 weeks old, our baby girl wasn't sleeping well at night, and we were willing to try anything! I found someone selling their MamaRoo for $100! It was a steal! 
It was completely easy to set-up, and the controls are self-explanatory. The different movements and sounds give us a good variety too. My only complaints would be the fact that we can't dim the control screen. In the middle of the night, it's pretty bright and we usually have to put something on it to drown out the light. I would also love if the mobile would spin on its own. My baby loves when we make it spin! 
Our baby girl only likes it some of the time, but she has definitely slept 3hrs in it before, and that in itself is worth every dollar! We are hoping that she starts…
