Ya know when you’re living life, and it just goes on by in a blink? That’s what we’ve been doing here. Now let’s take a look at the highlights from March!
That first week (or three) with a new baby around meant a whole lot of TV for Hunter and Zoe. Their snuggling together on the couch was the best.
We had our first outing as a family of five when Nova was around 5-6 days old – hospital visit follow up + a trip to the grocery store. It was a miracle we all looked presentable (and on time) leaving the house!
This is my go to omgimsotiredandneedcomfort lunch – tuna sushi bowls. I shared the recipe over two years ago and we still love it! Find it here.
One of the hardest parts emotionally of having a newborn baby was not getting as much one on one time with the other kids. I loved this afternoon where Hunter and I whipped up a quick simple batch of mini almond butter fudge cups. We munched and reconnected just as my mama heart was needing it. Find the mini almond butter fudge recipe here.
I added the sakura bloom ring sling to my collection of baby carriers. After figuring it out with the help of a few videos, I loved how quick it was to get baby into it! Plus it’s comfortable to wear.
8 days old and all dressed up for her first morning at church. Gosh she’s beautiful.
Sweet 2 week old Nova. Her and I had a weekend long stuck in bed together – I got mastitis for the first time and felt like I was hit with the flu but worse. No fun. So thankful for a husband who feeds us, takes care of the other kids and a baby to nurse away my boob pain.
Cheddar broccoli soup, the best homemade dutch oven bread and salad. It’s all way more simple than it looked, and even more delicious.
Cheers (or tears) for being almost 3 weeks old!
Before Jacob went back to work a sweet friend of mine took family photos for us – these are just three of the many amazing photos we got. SO happy we did this.
Hunter is the best baby holder. He tells me Nova is his best friend, gives her kisses and rubs her back to comfort her when she’s sad. I know she is the luckiest to have him as a brother, but I feel the luckiest that I get to witness all of this sweetness.
When I brought Hunter’s flip flops out from hiding on a sunny day, it pretty much made it the best day ever. That boy is flip flop obsessed and would wear them rain or shine. Also, how are these kids so cool?
March seems like so long ago looking back at these pictures. While it was a tiring month with a newborn, we still managed to keep life going, had lots of fun and soaked up so much great time together while Jacob was on his paternity leave. I just love these people of mine so much.
