Time really does fly when you’re having fun (and getting no sleep)! Last week, Collins turned one month old, actually today she is 5 weeks old, and it all just seems like it’s going by too fast already!
If you’ve been following us throughout my pregnancy, you know that we were kept on our toes by little Collins all pregnancy long! In my third trimester, after an admission to the hospital, I got diagnosed with gestational hypertension & started having to see a high-risk doctor in addition to my midwives.
When we first began planning our blog posts for this year, I had wanted to share with all of you my plan to get back in shape postpartum. I wanted to be able to share my extensive plans on how I was going to be eating better and the exercise plans that I had for myself to gain lean muscle and lose the excess body fat. However I am now 3 months postpartum and my plan looks nothing like I had anticipated.
I’m trying not to say it too much, but it really is 100% true, being Conley’s mama keeps getting better and better. Conley is the sweetest baby, and I am loving watching her grow and change and take in the world around her (also simultaneously crying because it’s happening all too fast!). I can’t believe we are officially out of the “4th trimester” and my little teeny girl is no longer a newborn.
Both of our families are sticking to a strict budget in February, also known as “No Spend February”. With that in mind, we wanted to share some ideas for some very budget friendly ideas to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your significant other! Here are a few ideas to get your creative wheels spinning.
Well the first of month of Conley’s life we were so proud that we had made it a month. She was still alive, we were alive and we were kind of getting a hang of this whole parenting thing. While we know we still don’t know exactly what we’re doing, the second month it sure does feel like we’ve got a pretty good thing going. We are loving being her parents and how interactive Conley is now.
Trey & I exchanged stockings early this year because I included some golf things in his stocking and he since he was going golfing today, I wanted him to be able to put some of his gifts to good use! Since we exchanged early, I thought I would share what he got me since he totally killed the gift giving game this year & I know there are many of you who are scrambling to find last minute gift ideas!
