The fog is lifting!


Happy New Year!

I know, I know - it's already the end of February.

This whole mom thing isn't easy. I knew it wasn't going to be easy, but for some reason, I didn't think it would be this hard. Don't get me wrong, having my daughter has been the biggest blessing in my life! She has changed our world, and has made it so much better. Her smiles and laughter get me through each day.

There is so much more planning involved with just getting out of the house (which we need to do more often). Are we leaving near a nap time, meal time, or fussy time? Is there a place where I can nurse her (I really need to figure out how to use my NuRoo Nursing scarf)? How presentable do I really need to look? Is there anything that I'm shopping for that I can't just buy using Amazon Prime?

It is getting easier, though. Those first few months are still somewhat blurry, but that's okay. Once my girl started getting to be more mobile, things got easier. She's not sleeping through the night, and I'm still a human pacifier, but this is just a season.

She is going to be 8 months next week. EIGHT MONTHS OLD. Time is literally flying. It's different when I say that as a mom. though. This little person is growing before our eyes. Every day she is learning new things and discovering the world around her. We've been able to document all those milestones, and while they have happened recently, they still seems so far away.

She is my constant reminder to enjoy the present.

Enjoy today,
and I promise I'll be updating regularly!

xoxo, Ru

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…
