It’s been more than a week with our sweet baby girl, Emme, and I swear there are moments where I feel like she’s been here all along; she just fits, you know? Scarlett is completely smitten with her little sister, and I find myself begging her to stop throwing her arms around Emmeline at least every other minute. I mean, a newborn is a peanut after all. Not such a bad problem to have. Of course, we’re exhausted, but it comes with the territory. Trying to stay on top of blogging and two kids, has been quite the feat, still I know slowly but surely, I’ll get the hang of it.
I’ll be sharing what we’re up to throughout the weekend over on instagram (lots of fun behind-the-scenes on my insta stories too!), facebook, and twitter. Follow along! How about you? Any exciting weekend plans?
With that, a few little love notes to the things I loved most this week …
Dear feel good tricks, this simple activity can make you so much happier. (It’s science.)
Dear fellow mamas, anyone ever try the Miracle Swaddle? Emme is basically a Houdini, and we can’t keep her little arms secure in any of our homemade swaddles. We’ve heard good things about the Miracle Swaddle. Have you tried it?
Dear end-of-week giggles, if you aren’t already following mama, @mayavorderstrasse, now is the time. She’s beautiful and hilarious and all of her Instagram snaps are A+.
Dear DIYs to try, the cutest owl pumpkins made using just a Sharpie.
Dear chiller temps, THE perfect scarf. (Aaaand I plan on pairing it with this sleeved t-shirt dress in black I just snagged on Amazon. It was $16.99 (and several of the colors are $9.99!) I have a feeling I’ll be living in this all fall.
Dear party planning prep (because it’s almost the season!), how to throw a large dinner party without losing your mind.
Dear weekend baking, pistachio chocolate sable cookies. (These look SO good.)
