One of my first loves was for children’s books. As a kid, I vividly remember looking forward to bedtime every night because I’d get to listen to my parents narrate my favorite stories (in all the voices!). In doing so, they helped to instill in me a lifelong love for reading, writing and learning. Naturally, I’ve been trying to inspire Naiya and Sadie in a similar way.
At a time when everything seems so uncertain, I’ve found myself snuggling my girls even tighter than ever (with clean hands!). Naturally, I can’t get enough of this Lillebaby carrier right now because it allows me to do just that. We snapped these pictures before we were quarantined to our homes here in Los Angeles pre-coronavirus. That said, I’ve been wearing this carrier on repeat at home for days now and I’m loving that it allows me to be hands-free for conference calls. Excited to team up with the Lillebaby team today to gift one RELish reader a carrier of their own. Scroll down to read how to enter!
We snapped these photos a few weeks ago when Sadie and I had a date at the beautiful Beverly Hills Hotel. It was a couple of days before I went back to work from maternity leave and I remember feeling so nervous! At that point, I hadn’t been away from Sadie for more than an hour or two here and there and I was trying to wrap my head around what our new normal might look like. Looking back, it’s crazy that at this point, coronavirus was not yet a household name and that so much has changed in just a few short weeks. Likewise, along with rounding up our outfit details today, I’m sharing some ways our family is protecting ourselves against this scary virus in case this info helps any other anxious mamas out there.
This weekend, I celebrated International Women’s Day for the first time as a mama of two girls. Thanks to Daylight Savings, I got an extra hour of snuggle time with my two minis yesterday morning. I thought about how proud I am to be raising two girl bosses. I’m head over heels in love with being a girl mom and I can’t wait to see who these two grow up to be. Sharing some recent photos with my girls today as well as our outfits. Here’s to strong women. May we know them. May we raise them. May we be them.
Chunky baby alert! This is probably the first post I’ve ever written that doesn’t feature photos of an outfit. But since Sadie’s arms and legs are literal dinner rolls, I had to share her deliciousness! Topping off today’s post with some actual style takeaway for you too: our favorite baby girl outfits we’re currently accessorizing these rolls with.
