This post is sponsored by Dreft Purtouch. All of the opinions and thoughts stated are 100% my own.     You are preparing for your little one’s arrival. The nursery is complete, the car seat is installed, and your bags are packed, maybe? What’s next? One thing I always did before the baby came was wash their newborn clothes!

How the 3rd baby changed me

This post is sponsored by Carter’s; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. No one really prepared me for my third child. Why should they? I have already birthed 2 other children. I had this under control. I knew what to expect and how I was going to feel. I was wrong. No one told me that breastfeeding wouldn’t be easy. No one told me that I might experience postpartum anxiety( didn’t know that was even a thing).…

On top of the help I am getting I am using some amazing Playtexbaby products! Leighton is waking up every 3 hours and I am…

Let’s just say I HAVE NO IDEA HOW I WOULD BE ABLE TO TEACH THE LAST 4…

Cute outfits and baby toys are nice but there are a few things as a mom of 2 already that I would want even more..   FOOD! You…

My Rainbow baby Maternity shoot.

A rainbow baby is a child born after a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss. I have experienced 2 miscarriages in my adulthood and neither one of them were something I ever thought I’d endure. Losing a child when you’re only a couple weeks or further is hard no matter what. My faith in the Lord was the only thing that got me through both. Ainsley is my first rainbow baby and now Leighton will be my second. God gives and…
