The first 8 weeks!

I have a confession: I’m not proud of it, but before I had Jackson I judged moms on their mothering. NOT. ANY. MORE.

Baby Newell’s Nursery

Time for a nursery reveal! This nursery has literally been a work in progress for (almost) 3 years…it’ll be 3 years in January.

A Break from A Break

So it’s day 7 of my fertility break and I’ve already changed the plan. I actually changed the plan on day 2 and am just now getting around to blogging about it.
