Bodie's Birth Story

Bodie's Birth Story

Hey friends,

This last weekend my baby turned 3!  THREE!  We spent the day as a family doing things we love like going to the beach, and getting Bodie his favorite cookie (vegan oatmeal raisin) from Whole Foods.  It was very mellow, just the way we all like it.

In honor of Bodie's third birthday, I thought it would be fun to finally share his birth story.  I've wanted to share this for three years now, but I guess the third birthday is the charm.  If you're not okay reading about the messy truth of labor then I'd skip this one! I'm also sharing the few photos we shot with our cell phone, but don't worry, there's nothing messy about those! Phew.

Hey friends!

This post is long overdue, and a fair warning, may be a little over the place.  I hate to say that I've been "too busy" to blog, but I truly have been too busy.  I've been pulled in a million different directions between motherhood and business.  In addition, we took a vacation last month, and then my dad ended up in the hospital.  I tried to keep everyone updated on Instagram, and appreciate all of the love and prayers we received.

Running a Business + Being a Mom

Running a Business + Being a Mom

Hi!  

I have been totally swamped in motherhood over the past 10 days.  Bodie, who is not an easy toddler in general, got a cold early last week, that turned into a secondary infection last weekend.  He ended up on antibiotics.  My husband and I got the same bug, and went on antibiotics as well.  It's the first time I've had to take them in years!  

Being sick, and being a mom quite frankly sucks.

Being sick, and being a mom to a sick kid sucks even more.

Being sick, being a mom to a sick kid, and a wife to a sick husband is the worst!

Yoga ON the Mat

Yoga ON the Mat

Before I had Bodie I practiced yoga almost daily. Some practices were hard and vigorous, while others were slow and restorative. Some practices long, and others short... but regardless, I made the time to get on my mat even when working long hours. I even practiced throughout my pregnancy all the way up until the day the little guy was born (btw that story is coming soon!). But let me tell you, my practice has really gone to crap since that day!

Bad Moms + Perfectionism

Bad Moms + Perfectionism

Last night I put Bodie to sleep, and watched Bad Moms. Finally.

Have you seen it? It was definitely funny. Kathryn Hahn always makes me laugh. There's just something about her.

Anyhoo, I really enjoyed the premise of the movie... that being a mom these days is impossible...

Happy Friday, friends! 

I hope everyone had a good week.  Let's jump right into it...

What I'm feeling: This week's full moon.  What a sight she was rising over the Gulf of Mexico.  I went out for sunset on Wednesday, and as spectacular as the color show was, the rising full moon just blew me away.  Some of you may have followed along on my Instagram Live...
