August is national breastfeeding month so I thought I’d share my breastfeeding journey with you.
It was HARD. I used to think it would be easy and our natural instincts would kick in. Nope. Both you and your baby must learn how to do it together. It was emotionally and physically draining. By the end of the first month, I wanted to throw in the towel and quit. I was done with the bloody cracked nipples and painful latching. However, since there are so many benefits and reasons why #breastisbest and I had the supply, I felt guilty for not giving him what I had. I continued on and told myself that 3 months would be my goal. 3 months passed and I still had a great supply so my next goal was 6 months. 6 months passed and it was getting better so my next goal was 12 months. 26 months later and I realized we haven’t stop. 😂 I’m so grateful I was able to share this breastfeeding bond with my son and now with my daughter. It’s not easy and it’s not for everyone. You do what’s best for you and your baby but if you are struggling like I was, I want to tell you that it gets so much better and the moments become so special. When I weaned Logan, I was the one crying! 🙊 Hang in there, you can do it, mama! .

Soaking up the last bit of summer sunshine with this happy girl! 🌞🌺🌻🌷
I heard someone on the radio talking about Christmas presents already and I about choked on my own shocked inhale. 😱 Where did this year go?? Aaaaand why are we thinking about Christmas in August?? I mean... is it just me or does it get earlier and earlier each year? 🙈

Happy 1st Birthday My little sassy girl🦄🎉. I’m So excited to keep watching you grow🥺. May God bless you with all the most wonderful things that you deserve in this life✨💕
This week had some highs and some lows and I’m not sad it’s over 🙈 adjusting to kindergarten is not for the weak of heart but I’m glad I had this kid to keep me company all week. He told me lots of awesome jokes and we played a lot of Mario Brothers together. So yeah I’m ready for preschool to start next week 🤪 #lotsofmixedfeelings
In just under a month, our baby girl will be ONE 😭
Just got to York for our last week up during the summer season, it’s always bitter sweet the last trip knowing that in a week the streets won’t be filled with ice cream faced kids, and parents on the verge of a melt down if they don’t get a table for dinner in 5 minutes😂👋🏻🤷🏻♀️. Year after year since I can remember Maine has just made our summers that much better and I love that it will have the same effect on j..💙💙💙
