Happiest day to all the mommas out there!
Last night I whipped up a lil paper bag waist skirt for Nola from a remnant of fabric I had. I wish it was a touch bigger, but that’s what you get when you’re working with what’s on hand!
I’ll do a DIY for you guys and recreate it now that I know it wont be a disaster..
For now, here is my sweet lady in her new skirt!

I’ll write a proper post later today, but in the meantime I thought you might enjoy Nola’s first time in her Bumbo yesterday! I was hesitant to put her in it because shes struggled with head control, but she was really happy to have a new point of view.



Sometimes a baby just wants to nurse. All. Day. Long. We are having one of those days. No matter how much you would like for them to take a nap or enjoy a toy or anything else for that matter, they just want you and the comfort of your skin pressed to their nose. Today is that day.

If I were a seasoned mother, I might know better. But oh, I am not. I am a new mom, like every mother before me has been and every mother after me will be. My daughter is Nola Adelaide: a sweet blueberry eyed 10 pound 6 ounce 4 month old who was born 7 weeks early. She’s captured my heart, mind, soul and of course body… Life will (thankfully) never be the same.

And so we begin…

I set out to write this blog while I was pregnant. I never got past registering the name, I’m not really one to do anything quickly. But after today… A day filled with protesting from a baby who just wants to nurse(and nurse and nurse and nurse) I think I’m ready. I hope I’m ready!

We’ll see!
