How is it possible that I have a 3-month-old? I know that everyone said it would go by fast, but it truly is! I will say, this phase is already so much fun and I am loving watching my baby grow…even if it makes me sad that he’s not so tiny anymore.
I heard that this phase can be the hardest. And while there were certainly difficult times, we made it through and we’re able to enjoy it (most of the time). I think you have to remind yourself that ‘it will get better’ and that this newborn phase will go so quickly. But if you need more advice, here are a few things that helped us survive the fourth trimester phase.
Becoming a mom has definitely changed my style. I now have less time to try-on outfits and typically am getting ready during Ford’s first nap of the day, so am trying to super efficient. Plus, I am still breastfeeding and plan to continue to…so I am always looking for pieces that are versatile and functional. I invested in some great pieces for fall that can easily be mix-and-matched together and work for business meetings to events and days at-home. Here are my favorites!
The truth is: this week has been rough. Between Ford’s sleep regression & #fourthleap, while holiday projects are wrapping for @kes_studio, I feel drained. I used to give 100% of myself to everyone else, but I’ve learned that as a mama, your cup has to be full in order to help your family. So, even though I’ve been running on very little sleep with a very long to-do list, I knew it was time for some self-love. Mamas, all it takes is that shower you usually skip or the 45-minute workout class you never want to commit to or even indulging in a glass of wine with girlfriends. It doesn’t have to be hard to find time for yourself. Find a way! Ask for help. Make it happen. Because it’s so worth it. Amidst the chaos this week, I’ve learned to take some time for me. These beautiful subscription flowers by @everwild_florals are another way I’m giving myself permission to do something that makes me happy. Flowers make me happy and that’s all that matters. So, getting a surprise arrangement delivered to my home every month is worth it. If you need permission to treat yourself, I’m giving it! 💐 #motherhoodrising
