    Becoming a Big Brother- When Your World Changes

    Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Carter’s; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. Visit my disclaimer page for more information.

    It doesn’t matter if it’s your 1st or 5th baby. A baby changes absolutely everything. Your routine and schedule, your relationship with your spouse, your relationship with your pet, your relationship with your other children (if any), your relationship with your friends and family, your sleep patterns, your eating habits, everything.

    Introducing a new member to your family is such a wonderful thing, but it can also definitely turn things upside down. I’m about to have my second baby and I already know it’s going to shake things up for everyone. Especially Sawyer. Not only is he currently an only child, but he’s also the only grandchild on both sides. That means he has the constant attention of not only my husband and me, but our parents and siblings. Adding a new baby to the mix is going to rock his world. He’s too young to understand my pregnancy, and I’m trying to find other ways to get us both ready for the change.

    Turn Any Bag Into a Gym Bag

    Happy Tuesday!

    We’re back from vacation! We had an amazing time, I’ll have a full recap up later this week (plus a separate Disneyland post). I’m exhausted but ready to get back to work.

    I’m currently 28 weeks pregnant. I’ve been trying to stay as active as possible by working out regularly. There are so many benefits to working out during pregnancy. It reduces the risk of gestational diabetes, eases aches and pains (which I have a lot of this time around), can make labor and delivery easier, and help you lose the baby weight quicker!

    Ah, pregnancy.

    One of the most stressful things a woman can go through, and yet, we take away her wine. It’s a cruel rule.

    I’ve also got a bit of a sweet tooth (plus a pretty intense ice craving), so sometimes I like to make fun mocktails!

    Today I’m sharing my recipe for Bubbly Pomegranate Lemonade here’s what you’ll need:

    A Classy Maternity Look

    Looking classy while pregnant can sometimes be a struggle. All I want to do is lay around in my sweatpants. But alas, I am an adult with responsibilities who must sometimes venture out into the real world. Which can require real clothes.

    And don’t get me wrong, I love a cute outfit as much as the next girl. But the struggle to put yourself together can definitely be real during pregnancy!

    Figure 8 Maternity makes it so easy with so many cute and classy choices!
