Marion is 2 Months Old!

2 Month Old Baby Redhead

Marion is 2 months old! She is growing and becoming the sweetest little gal I have ever met. This month we brought in the new year with friends, watched the Broncos make it to the Super Bowl, spent more time at the brewery, and had our first (completely asleep) zoo visit.

She now is smiling and talking with us. Shadows and the mobile I made her are a couple of her favorite things. Just the sight of them makes her smile. Her legs are strong and she uses them to kick and stand. So far every single baby tool (boppy, pacifiers, Mamaroo) have been welcomed and appreciated. There isn’t a single thing that I have tried to entertain her with that she didn’t like. We’ve started “mom and me” yoga. As I transition from downdog to plank and give her a smile, I get a big one back (did I mention yoga after 5 months of not practicing is hard!?). Storytime after baths has been something I love to do with her. However, when I try to sing her to sleep, it doesn’t work so well because she gets so happy and sings back to me.

This hair is impossible to keep neat for very long, so we just let this redhead go crazy. We’re getting ready for her big trip to California now. Can’t wait! We just love her to pieces!

Infant’s First Trip: What to Pack?!

I have been called brave a few times already since becoming parents. The first time that we went to the movies, the first time we went out of town for the weekend, and now we’re getting ready for our first flight to California. I don’t personally think it’s brave. I think it’s the best time! While I was on maternity leave, we wanted to take advantage of me having all this time off and decided to book a trip to California to visit our hometown and family.

This week I have been thinking of what we need to bring, and whether or not I need to buy another suitcase. We’ve decided to rent a car so now that we each get 2 bags to check, I figure we might as well bring everything that we think we may need. This may be my “first time Mom” dead giveaway.

Packing List for Infant

So far, Marion has been extremely easy. I really hope the trend continues. That being said, I want to make sure that I don’t forget anything that I may need. MUSTS for me would be her grooming kit (this gal has so much hair), swaddling blankets, and of course a ton of clothes. You aren’t always sure if you will get a chance to do laundry, so I figure I may as well plan on not doing it.

Is there anything I’m missing?! Is it too much?! I just can’t wait to hop on that plane. It’s been in the 80′s in California! It will be such a nice break from Winter!

 

2 Minute Makeup

Now that I am a Mom, and have a to-do list of a thousand items before I get out the door, my makeup routine needed to be cut down. I never took too long before, but I’ve had to cut out a few steps. There are some things that you can just skip completely, and some

Marion’s Birth Story

e045wRkdyHJZMgwyv1IlkB_Mp43gS2yQUwJxsCHn_0k

While I was pregnant, like most women in my circle I read Ina May’s Guide to Childbith. I knew I was going to go the midwife route from the very beginning, and reading this only affirmed my decision. The beginning portion of the book is filled with birth stories of all types. Reading the positive stories in particular helped me visualize a positive birth experience. In the end, this is what I got. I know that all women experience different types of birth. I believe it’s probably the most personal thing we as women have. By sharing mine, I am not saying that my way is the right way. I am saying that I loved everything about it, and I want to share it with you.
