5 HACKS FOR SURVIVING YOUR FIRST YEAR OF MOTHERHOOD

Los Angeles mom blogger, RELish By Arielle shares how to survive your first year of motherhood

Since Naiya is about to turn one year old later this week, I’ve been feeling overly nostalgic recently (I’m not crying storing her 6-12 month old clothing in the attic–you’re crying!). Hands down, this has been the most incredible, meaningful, pivotal and exhausting year of my life. I’ve never felt such extreme highs and lows in the same hour, let alone in the same week as I have this year. I’ve also never felt so happy, terrified and also so fulfilled all at the same time. 

TARGET BABY OUTFIT INSPO

We can’t believe Naiya will be turning one on August 30th–especially because our baby with all the leg rolls is already fitting into 12-18 month clothing! Naiya has been growing so quickly, I’ve had a hard time keeping up with stocking her closet. I keep folding up her 6-12 month outfits to store away and can’t believe how quickly time is going. I totally ugly cried a few nights ago watching videos of Naiya on my phone from every month of her life so far. Phil came downstairs and probably thought I was a nut. This parenting thing is so crazy emotional! How have Phil and I been parents for almost a year? Then again, it feels like a lifetime at the same time. 

IN MY HUBBY’S WORDS: OUR LOVE STORY

Blogger, RELish and her family

Along with today’s outfit of the day (a bright pink mumu because…#momlife), I’m excited to share a guest post by my hubby, Phil. I last interviewed him here about how his experience in becoming a first-time dad.  Since it looks like that post was one of your all-time favorites, my wordsmith of a husband is back today by popular demand. This time, I asked him to open up a bit about his version of our love story. Since some of you may be newer to this blog and I haven’t shared too much about how we met since our wedding posts (more here, here and here), I’m excited for Phil to get you all caught up below in his own words.
