Coffee + Conversation

Good morning and happy Monday, friends.

I hope everyone has had a good weekend. The past month has been pretty busy around these parts, hence my absence. Its been a super busy season for Corey at work, which has left me to run our household by myself. I've been reworking our schedule over and over again to try to find the perfect balance of time with both kids, chores around the house, work with Beautycounter, time to attend my favorite workout classes, blogging, and just alllll the things. Who would've thought one little baby could cause so much change in our schedule?!

Speaking of that sweet little baby, he turned four months old last week.

Connor Robert: 3 months

I can’t believe three months with our little boy have already passed. Some days are long but the weeks and months are flying by so I am still trying to soak up and savor these moments where he is tiny, even on the hard days, because I know they will be gone forever all to soon.

What a different baby he is from his head-strong, sassy, very independent big sister. If I’m being totally honest it is really refreshing to have an easier baby this go round. I wouldn’t change a thing about Madeline and love her strong-willed personality but boy am I glad not to have a double dose of that in our house. 

With Madeline everything was hard. Nursing was such a challenge. She was such a bad sleeper - at three months old she would only go to sleep with the perfect combination of bouncing/jiggling, shushing, stroking her forehead, and holding the paci in with my teeth by doing all of that at once. She had colic and terrible reflux and making sure she was gaining enough weight was a constant battle.

Coffee + Conversation

Happy Monday, friends. How is it already March?

We had a fun weekend this past weekend with a wine tasting event in our neighborhood, French press and pastries for breakfast at our favorite coffee shop, a hair appointment for me, and some time to just relax yesterday.

It has been raining for what feels like an eternity in Charlotte lately but we finally had a little reprieve over the weekend so our family took full advantage and headed outside for drinks and charcuterie Saturday afternoon. I snapped this picture of Madeline and feel like she looks so grown up here.
