Currently: November

While I'm too late to join in Anne's linkup, I still wanted to share my currently list for November. This month has been a blur so far for me, filled with lots of baby snuggles, toddler bedtime struggles, and not a lot of sleep. Here's what I'm currently up to so far.

{discovering} a newfound love for leggings. I've never been much of a leggings-wearer, but my postpartum bod is making me reconsider. Not only are my pre-baby pants and jeans not yet an option, but also I don't want to wear anything that's uncomfortable on my c-section incision. I bought a pair of leggings from Target and I haven't looked back. Because I'm not going anywhere most days (or if I do it's just one quick errand), I've given myself permission to be on team "leggings as pants".

{celebrating} life as a family of four. Oh, and the fact that I can now enjoy a small glass of red wine in the evenings.

{starting} to get a little stir-crazy at home. I feel like my day pretty much consists of feeding Violet, and I don't have a ton of time in between feedings. But in the past week I've tried to plan small outings just about every day to help with the cabin fever. I need to take advantage now while it's still nice out.

{wearing} all the lounge wear and nursing friendly tops. During pregnancy I feel so ready to get my "regular" wardrobe back that I forget that whole period of time when nothing fits, and all shirts need to have easy boob-access. I think I need to do a little shopping for some nursing-friendly tops that are both functional AND pretty.

{googling} newborn and toddler sleeping tips. Oh boy, sleep is a disaster in our house right now. I knew sleep would be elusive with a newborn, but it doesn't make it any less frustrating. Violet's sleep anywhere, anytime phase has passed, and now only wants to sleep when we hold her. Which can't happen at 3 in the morning. And Jona, who had been doing well sleeping all night in his big kid bed, has regressed big time and freaks out every time we leave him to go to sleep. Other than Ellie, our lazy dog, no one is getting a lot of sleep around here.

What are you up to currently?

  1. Oh my goodness, right there with you on everything minus the red wine (that will come soon enough!) and the dog. M passed the "sleep anywhere anytime phase" before we had even left the hospital. We have had a grand total of one hour in the last week where everyone has been asleep in their own bed. We've been taking shifts being the one awake that she will sleep on, but now that C is realizing this kid just won't leave (or stop crying), there are times in the middle of the night where no one is asleep in their own bed. We will get through this, right?!


I really appreciate hearing from you!
