We’re continuing our 2016 wrap up- get caught up on Fashion Faves here, Home Decor & Organization here and today is all about baby and family! We were incredibly blessed last year to welcome baby Jordan into our lives and hearts. She was born in February, two and a half weeks early, and just two days before my own birthday. In the almost-year that she’s been with us, we’ve fallen madly in love and she brings so much joy to our home.
I shared my pregnancy journey with you and I so appreciate all the support you’ve shown during this time of transition in my life. It was actually a rough first four months getting acclimated to a baby again, espeically since our six year old son was already so independent. We were thrown back into the newborn stage and I think our baby amnesia didn’t serve us too well at first! Being a second-time mom has its advantages though – you have the mothering experience on your side and are able to trust yourself more. James has been wonderful with Jordan and is truly such a good big brother. And she adores him too. She calls, “aaaaammmmeees!!!!!!” from the bottom of the stairs when he’s upstairs.
For 2017, I’ll update you Jordan’s on progress (she started walking at 9 months!), share her 1st birthday party with you (I’m already planning!) and soon I’ll share how we transitioned to solid foods with lots of super easy homemade baby food recipes.
If you’re new to my blog, or want to catch up on our baby journey, check out these popular family posts from 2016. Being 40 and pregnant sparked me to share more vulnerable parts of myself with you and I was candid about the struggles and fears I faced (the sucky parts of pregnancy, parent appreciation and men & babies especially).
Your comments and encouragement helped pick me up when I felt down, and I thank you for that! I still read every one of your comments and it’s just me over here blogging to you and active on social media. I don’t have a team or anyone doing that on my behalf in case you were curious.
