New & Improved Layout

I was itching for a change, so here it is. Not a lot has changed, but its just enough for me.


Bath Luve

Luckily Catherine loved her bath from the very beginning, but I know many babies do not. Well I ran across this product that looks like it would help with bath time.

Baby Bond

Another new breastfeeding extra that is nice. It’s a nursing sash, so instead of having to use a blanket or a nursing cover, you use this instead!

Baby Bond comes in a few varieties, but they all work the same way. The only things that change are burp cloth and fabric options. I love that the Baby Bond works like a nursing top, one piece of fabric goes up and one goes down. This action creates an opening for your baby to eat through. Your shirt you have on keeps your sides covered and the Baby Bond keeps the rest of you covered. Baby can eat and not have a blanket over his/her head!

Personally I like the look and use of the Couture Baby Bond. Check them out. If you like them, but don’t want to spend the money. Got to Mama's Getting Kinda Crunchy and enter their giveaway for a chance to win one!

Look stunning while secretly concealing your baby weight with our Yummie Tummie Nursing T. Designed to slim and smooth that stubborn, new Mommy middle. Ultra soft and comfortable, our simple snap down bust panel and adjustable straps allow for easy and convenient nursing while still supporting your feminine curves.

Catherine loves to swim now! She would go in the water before, but generally had a death grip on who ever was holding her. Well now she loves the water and will float around on her own. Check it out!







Cottage Pictures

Sorry for the delay. I got sick and really haven’t done a lot of anything in over a week!

Without further ado, here are the pictures of the cottage.

Having a cold at the cottage in July sucks!

Well I guess working nights and not sleeping really caught up with me. We headed up to the cottage yesterday morning and I started to get a really stuffed up nose. I blew my nose all day and by bedtime I was beyond congested. I slept like crap because I couldn’t breath. First thing when we were up fed and dressed Catherine, Jeff and I headed to the drug store for meds. Although I still feel like I have a cold I can breath through my nose again and the sinus pressure is much better. I was also able to have two good naps, which were very much appreciated. While I was napping Jeff took Catherine in to the water and she actually seemed to enjoy herself. Hopefully we can get in the water again before we leave tomorrow, so I can enjoy it with her.

Will post some pictures later!

40 lbs down, 14 lbs to go!

I am officially down 40 lbs! I'm so excited. I have two more pounds to lose to get to my pre-pregnancy weight and 14 lbs to get to my wedding weight. Also, my percentage of weight lost is 20.5% since I started. Here's to hoping the last 10 or so pounds come off as well as the last 20 lbs have!!
