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).…

Mornings look a little different now.

Thank you Playtexbaby for sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% my own. My mornings are very different now after adding another baby into the mix. Our precious Leighton joined our family on May 4th! Before two kids I wasn’t a morning person and I’m still not. Thankfully I have a ton of help from my amazing husband! 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…

Hospital bag essentials: for the baby!

Well my bag is all packed! You can see what I am bringing to the hospital here ! There will be many things the hospital already gives you for the baby. Some of those things are diapers, wipes, a blanket, a paci, and some white onesies. I definitely overpack when it comes to packing the baby’s bag. I am having a birth photographer this time around and I want her to capture every single moment possible! I am SO excited about this!!!!! I…

How this soon to be mom of 3 cleans the floor!

  Cleaning…. I am not sure what mom loves to clean but deep cleaning has always been at the bottom of my priority list. As a mom who up until last week worked full time out of the house so cleaning was definitely NOT part of my daily plans. I would, however get home around 5 pm everyday and straighten up, put the dishes away, maybe cook, and start a load of laundry. We have a maid come once a month…

35 week BUMPdate

I have not been consistent with these bumpdates. It’s okay and I am not going to beat myself up over it. I had every intention of photographing my growing bump EVERY WEEK with a cute weekly banner…. That definitely did not happen.   Teaching 1st grade for the majority of this pregnancy took a toll on me. I was exhausted every day, it was difficult to read even a short story, it hurt to walk, and I was left with…

What new moms REALLY want…

This post is sponsored by Dinner Thyme. The opinions are 100% my own! Creating a registry is one of those things that make being pregnant really real!

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…

The Ashmores Blog has some BIG news!

Teaching has been my passion since I was a little girl. I used to play school in my bedroom. I had a chalkboard, overhead projector, worksheets, and animals as my students.   I was so excited when that dream became a reality in August of 2010! I landed my first teaching job at an amazing private school. There was only one problem. I had an 8 month old and would need to leave him in the care of someone else.…

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…
