I was breastfed as a baby and just always assumed that unless I was actually unable to, I would choose to breastfeed my own children. I understand that this isn’t a choice everyone makes and I’ll admit, sometimes I do feel frustrated when I see a mom choosing formula because she’s afraid breastfeeding will make her nipples weird (or something to that affect) because to me that’s not a strong enough reason to deprive your child of something that is SO SO good for them!

The big yearly Amazon Prime Day sale is here!! This is actually my first year shopping it (I recently joined Prime; handy when you have a new baby) since it’s only for Prime members.  If you aren’t a member, you can always do the trial and cancel afterwards at no cost… and still get to shop this sale!

I turn 30 on July 11! The big 3-0!

Honestly, I’m excited about it.  For the most part I’m really happy with where I am in my life, at this age.  I feel comfortable going into my 30’s and that’s a good feeling.

I always make a wish list for my birthday. Not because I expect gifts but because I like lists. haha This year’s kinda made me chuckle because it’s so grown up.

Last pregnancy, I was pregnant from Aug-May… This time I’ll be pregnant from Feb-Nov! Totally different time of the year! First trimester we were still dealing with a lot of cold, Winter weather but now we’re starting to have some hotter days. Second trimester will be during Summer which I love because I can wear lots of dresses and skirts!

We made the FB announcement on Easter 😉

Shirt found here

This post is a little late seeing as I announced this on social media weeks ago but…  We’re expecting baby #2 in November!!

We’re so excited! Cannot wait to have another little bebe in my arms and for our son, Beckett, to have a sibling. He’s VERY curious about babies right now and is so sweet with them.

Beckett is obviously too young to say what he really wants for Christmas but I think I have a pretty good idea!  The items below are all from “his wishlist” aka the one I created on Elfster (super handy website btw) based on what I know he likes!

I’m back with another baby eats post! I suppose once Beckett turns two I’ll change it to “toddler eats”.  😉

B is currently 1 1/2 years old.  He’s still plant based and generally eats a lot of the same things I eat. We still really limit his sugar intake (besides fruit) but a few bites of coconut ice cream here and there doesn’t bother me.  He recently had a bit of a cold (so did I) but otherwise has been the picture of health!

I want to share with you guys how I do my meal planning.  Now, this is what works for ME.  What works for you may look a little different!  There are a lot of options when it comes to meal planning and I recommend you experiment to see what works best for you!  I also change it up after a while because what works now won’t necessarily work for me later on.
