FOUR MONTHS IN WITH SADIE

I can’t believe it’s already almost March and Sadie is officially four months old. I feel like I’ve known her for a lifetime and for a minute all at the same time and I’m savoring her ever-growing rolls that are truly expanding by the second.  This month, Sadie truly grew exponentially. In fact, she may be one of the biggest four month olds I’ve ever seen. We learned today that she’s in the 97th percentile for height and weight and that she already weighs 18 pounds! I’m not sure what’s in my milk this time around but our pediatrician predicts she’ll be at least 5’9. Both of our girls may or may not be able to pick their mama up by kindergarten so I’m squeezing them in my arms while I still can.

5 THINGS I’M LOVING ABOUT MY GIRLS RIGHT NOW

I can’t believe I’m officially three months into being a mama of two girls under 2.5. Time has flown by SO much quicker with Sadie than it did with Naiya because my hands are so full with a non-stop toddler.  It’s been a wild ride with Sadie being hospitalized with RSV at three weeks old and a number of sleep regressions with Naiya. But overall, we’ve savored the last 12 weeks and I would love to freeze my girls in time just as they are. To celebrate getting through the fourth trimester in (almost) one piece, I’m sharing 5 things I’m loving about my girls right now as well as some of our favorite recent photos.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend with their families and friends! I still can’t believe the holidays are already here.

Enjoy!

PREPPING NAIYA TO BECOME A BIG SISTER (ISN’T EASY!)

I’m officially 33 weeks pregnant today and I’m already bigger than I was when I delivered Naiya. Needless to say, I feel like a giant whale who is ready to pop at any moment (but somehow, I still have so much more time to go)! Since it’s been a while since I’ve been able to post an update for you, sharing the latest and greatest with on my pregnancy journey, family life and how we’re prepping Naiya to become a big sister.

HOW TO SPOT: THE COMFIEST PREGNANCY DRESS

Happy Monday from the east coast! I’m on the last big trip I’m allowed to take during my pregnancy before I can no longer fly and I’m enjoying every minute. It’s crazy to think that this will be my last time traveling before I’m a officially a mom and there’s something so special about that. I’ve enjoyed the freedom of being able to pick everything up and go at the drop of a hat throughout my career so far and I’m doing my best to mentally prepare myself for the next couple of years (and beyond!) of having more responsibility at home (and keeping a tiny human alive and healthy!).  As I write this, I’m looking around at moms throughout JFK airport who are juggling infants, giant mom bags and they look super stressed out. I can barely wrap my head around it all right now but of course I am excited for this next chapter.
