I’m really not sure how we are going to manage, but I know we’ll get there. Eventually.
So far, our strategy has just been to divide & conquer! Brandon has been taking Harper & Eloise to the park on his days off to play soccer & climb around on the playgrounds while I stay home with Claire & catch up on sleep. He also handles the girls’ baths at night while I nurse Claire & get her ready for bed. I am so thankful for an easy recovery (so far) from my c-section, and for both Brandon & my mom for being so helpful along the way. I’m totally screwed once they’re both back to work full time next week.
And since I hoped to post this last week with a few Friday Favorites, here are a few of my current favorites, most of which have been discovered during middle of the night feedings!
I knew that after my c-section I would want to wear a lot of dresses because they have no waistline, I ordered this striped swing dress on a whim because it was on sale & ended up loving it so much! The fabric is super soft & it fits so well, I also love how long the length is so it is a really practical every day dress for hanging around with the kids. I also love these Gap t-shirt dresses, the colors are so pretty & vibrant in person!
A friend sent me this comedy stand-up about parenting & I have not stopped laughing about it. A much needed laugh for a Monday!
My insatiable appetite while breastfeeding has me constantly scrolling Pinterest for recipes in the wee hours of the morning, these Nutella stuffed pancakes are genius.
I have an unhealthy obsession with swaddle blankets, these Little Unicorn swaddles are my current favorite (poppy print pictured above), the patterns are so fun! There are lots of cute options for boys too, the navy stripe is my favorite!
Thank you all for being patient with the lack of blog posts, hopefully as we start getting into some sort of routine, I will be able to post more often once again! 😉 In the meantime, follow us on Instagram @jlgarvin for more photos & updates! XO
