Favourite 6-9 Month Baby Products

The past 3 months have brought with it a ton of new changes in our lives and Rhys’ development. Over the last few months he has started crawling, eating solid foods, is learning to feed himself, furniture walking, lots and lots of talking and laughing, and an overall curiosity for everything around him.

I May Be A Motherless Mother, But I Am Not Without My Mom

Nothing fit me right. There were rolls on my body in places I didn’t even know could roll. I felt ashamed and self-conscious and I resented my body for looking like this.

Christmas Traditions We Are Starting For Our Family

Since this is our first Christmas with children, there are so many traditions I want to start doing! Although, I’ll be honest, I feel a little silly doing all these new things when Rhys isn’t old enough to understand or remember them yet, but for us it is still special.
