💛On Dagny’s last night in the hospital, we got the second best set of news we could have asked for: She would be released from the NICU and we would be allowed to spend the night with her in the hospital in a special suite for NICU graduates. We have our Super Nurse of the day, Jody, to thank for really advocating for Dagny’s release. 💛The NICU calls this process “rooming in” and allowed my husband and I to spend the day and night with Dagny, unmonitored, unwired, and unsupervised (for the most part) to make sure she still maintained her temperature for the day and that we felt comfortable with the care that she needed (meaning, feeding her and changing her). 💛 We got her fed and changed before rolling her out of the glass sliding door of the NICU and down the hall of the Labor + Delivery floor to our suite for the evening. 😭You guessed it, I cried again. 📺 The rest of the evening was spent eating, snuggling, napping, learning how to give Dagny a bath (cuteness alert!), and watching Sasquatch documentaries on our hospital television. The room had a queen sized bed (hallelujah after a week of laying in a hospital bed and then a twin bed), two gloriously comfortable rocking chairs, a full bathroom, microwave, and fridge. It was like staying in a hotel! things were finally feeling normal again. We were one final step away from taking Dagny home. at Marshfield Children's Hospital

Research has shown that 20% of U.S. car accidents involved a drowsy driver. drivers who sleep only 5 or 6 hours in a 24-hour period are twice as likely to crash as drivers who get seven hours or more of sleep. And the less sleep the driver gets, the higher the crash rate. For instance, the study showed that drivers who only got 4 or 5 hours of sleep had 4 times the crash rate, close to what's seen among drunk drivers 😲⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In addition to car accidents, sleep deprivation has also been linked to weight gain, depression and anxiety 😕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you are worried about your own sleep deprivation and your baby is no longer a newborn, reach out to me.

I exclusively breast feed, To keep up my supply when away I pump every 4 hours day and night, yes even when it's the middle of the night I set my alarm and pump. I've done this since she was born 10 months ago. I have a freezer full and I produce about 32-38 ounces a day and she only drinks about 16-20 since she eats food now. I intend to stop when she's a year and then she can continue to drink from my frozen supply. . . . . #parentingmeemes #growing #babies #firstbirthday #firstborn #firsttimemom #newborn #pregnancy #pregnantlife #babybump #Fabulousbaby  #baby  #kids  #love  #Adorable #precious  #Babyboy  #Babylove  #Kids  #Cutebaby #angel  #fairy  #sweetheart  #Innocent  #Sweetbaby #uniquebaby  #lovelybaby #innocentbaby  #motherlove  #fatherlove  #family #baby  #kids  #love  #Adorable #precious  #Babyboy  #Babylove  #Kids  #Cutebaby #angel  #fairy  #sweetheart  #Innocent  #Sweetbaby  #uniquebaby  #lovelybaby #innocentbaby  #motherlove

“You often feel tired, not because you've done too much, but because you've done too little of what sparks a light in you.” It's almost 11pm. Ma'at is spending the night with my mom so i can finish up some eggroll orders. I would love to live a life where i can spend my days and nights devoted to her. But reality is that i can not. I have to make sacrifices for OUR future. I hustle so hard. Not becuase i can't do this on my own but becuase i make sure she has what she needs RIGHT NOW, in the FUTURE and in case of an EMERGENCY. And although the capitalistic midset, has me thinking non-stop about my next move, my next hustle, my heart reminds me to breathe and take a moment to be present.... with Myself and with my DAUGHTER. I finally attained a job where i can work parttime, CLOSE TO HOME, and that's been such a blessing. I am thankful, i am greatful, i am happy. These photos were from lastnight. I was supposed to read powerpoints and review documents for my new job but instead i did what "sparks a light in me" which was spending quality time with my kid and also, paleontology/playing w bones. #Trex #MommyAndMeTime #MomLife #SingleMom #FirstTimeMom #AspiringArchaeogist #BayArea

We collected everything that reminded us of our little babe and popped them into a memory box. This included ultrasound pictures, a little teddy and the medical bracelet from my hospital admission. It sits in the back of my wardrobe and I find it hard to go through it all. What did you do to honour your little babe? @whentherainclears . . . #photooftheday #igdaily #picoftheday #instapic #instamood #instagood #bestoftheday #instadaily #photo #love #smile #happy #instalike #tbt #truth #reality #quoteoftheday #quotes #quote #quotesdaily #reminder #instaquote #positive #staystrong #rainbowbaby #newmum #newmom #firsttimemum #firsttimemom #miscarriage

We've had the craziest week of probably our lives. We went to a baby doctor appointment on Wednesday & ended up heading to the hospital so they could monitor my insanely high blood pressure. An hour later... we were discussing a plan for these babies to come. An hour after that... we were parents! Unfortunately, they were only 34 weeks & 4 days. This means that they've been in the NICU and will remain there for a little while. As hard as everything has been, I'm feeling very lucky & so proud to be their mom 💙 First picture: our first family selfie while we were holding them for the first time.

Hey babes! So first and foremost I am a mom before anything else. That’s why today I’ve partnered with @trustandwill to talk about how important it is to set up a will (Especially if you have little ones!). As a single mom it’s important to me that my son is taken care of always. I’ve been putting it off for a while and Trust & Will made this so easy. It seriously took me less than TEN minutes to create one and it was so affordable AND all done on my computer. 👏🏻 Now mom has 1 less thing to worry about.💜 ALSO, you can use promo code ADULTING to get $10 off your order💕 The link will be in my bio! #HERtrustandwill #familyfirst #family #dadlife #momlife #estateplanning #newhome #newmom #firsttimemom #newparents #newborn #adulting at South Carolina

So as a new mom what has helped me keep a relatively consistent schedule is having meals prepped for the week. I started off when I went back to work making a large meal that I could stretch most of the work week. Been back for 2 months now and hit a wall with food ideas. This week I decided to try the meal kit services. Now they are expensive so I won't be able to do this regularly but I am currently getting the heavily discount first week from EVERY program out there. 😂😂😂 I have a new company delivery every week till the second week of May. It really is helpful. It allows us to stay on a schedule. We also are eating healthier and trying foods we never would have thought to make at home. This is a @gobbleinc meal. I have to say that I have been thoroughly impressed. The meals are bistro quality. If you have questions send me a DM. I can share a really good code for another company if you are interested in getting into this. I think I will do a review of each company after I try them all. #mealkit #sanity #firsttimemom #eatwell #tryingsomethingnew #ballinonabudget #newmom #momblog #momblogger #gobble #foodie #fauxchef

What is all of this talk about self care??? Well here’s Webster’s definition: The practice of taking an active role in protecting one's own well-being and happiness, in particular during periods of #stress. Stop 🛑 the negative 👎🏾 self-talk or believing the lies that someone has told you. Yes your hubby and kids are VERY important but so are YOU!!! ⠀⠀ ✅ You NEED it! ✅ You DESERVE it! ✅ You’re WORTH IT! ⠀⠀ Now wash your face 😭😭 and take your power 💪🏻💪🏾💪 back!! ⠀⠀ • • • • #anxiety #positiveaffirmations #dancelikenooneiswatching #havefaith #manipedi #massage #girlfriends #metime #pamperme #spaday #relax #meditate #yoga #panicattacks #breathe #exhale #keepcalm #tiredmom #momof4 #tiredmamas #exhausted #toddlermom #firsttimemom #butfirstcoffee #coffeeforthewin #needcoffee #needcaffeine #mommingishard #momlife via

A Baby who looks up to his Daddy, a Daddy who adores his Baby, and a Mommy who cannot get enough of them. These are the moments that make my heart burst with love and pride. Love for each of them, love for their little duo, pride that they have established such a strong connection, and pride that they are my boys. #myboys #prideandjoy #daddysbaby #daddysboy #buddies #luckymama #luckywife #happyheart #gratefulmama #honestmotherhood #simplemoments #motherhoodrising #motherhoodthroughinstagram #ohheymama #momlife #mamasboy #newmom #firsttimemom #andersonoscarking #aok #littleking

Before we left to go to the cemetery, I watched a few episodes of “This Is Us” (trying to catch up) and completely ugly cried throughout the entire thing. ***spoiler alert*** Watching Kate with her newborn and her struggle of having that baby without her dad there and then naming that newborn after him really hit home deeply and emotionally for me. My sweet Ty Richey carries my daddy’s name with him everywhere he goes. I look at my sweet boy and wonder what advice my daddy Rich gave him before he arrived on this earth, what songs they sung together, who sang which harmony in the quartet; I can imagine my dad singing alto/soprano with Michael Jackson while my brother Robbie sang bass and Ty sang tenor, lol. Oooh what an amazing and heavenly sound (literally) that would be, I can almost hear it faintly dancing in my memories. This boy is oh so tender and has given me the greatest gift of being his mother. Tears started flowing hard when this sweet kid fell asleep on my shoulder. Oh boy, writing about the tenderness is like cutting an onion, I can’t help but cry. So I’m just gonna leave this here before I start talking about the beauty of motherhood or more “This Is Us” episodes.

⚠️LONG POST WARNING⚠️Before I start, a reminder this is my story and in no way am I writing this to make anyone feel they need to compare in any way. If anything I am writing this so that if by chance you are going through ANY of this then it opens lines of communication and at the very least makes you know you are not alone . . When I was a teenager I was told I would not be able to have kids, at the time I did not care I just decided I didn’t want kids and that would be it. Fast forward to meeting my now fiancé. I told him almost immediately I could not have kids, again we were young and he was fine with that and that was that. Fast forward once more. Two years into our relationship I realized this was the real thing and I wanted a family with this person, a family I was told I would never have. Even though I knew this I still wanted to try an so began our 4 years of trying. These years were honestly heartbreaking and full of much disappointment. I kept a lot of this to myself, the tears, the failed pregnancy tests that I took when I was barely a day late every month, watching people around me become pregnant with their first and some even their second child. It was hard constantly putting on that brave face and keeping this to myself. Finally I had enough, last April we finally got our call and had an appointment with a fertility clinic on May 28th. I went into that appointment determined we were doing this but when we walked out the door I said no that I couldn’t do it and maybe we weren’t meant for this and so that’s the choice we made. It hurt beyond belief to let go of the dream of being a mom but I decided it was time to start moving forward. . . Two weeks after this I felt weird and decided I would take a test, a very faint almost invisible positive. I was convinced this was not real and continued to take test after test, some positive some negative. I called the dr and was setup to get bloodwork to confirm. . . **CONTINUED BELOW IN COMMENTS**

You’ve brightened so many lives and I just cannot express how much you, this little baby girl has flooded us with so much love. You’re the light of my life and I’m so glad you were sent to be mine. Rosie girl, I will say this again and again, but you are so loved my little one. ❤️

Happy twenty-fourth birthday to my baby daddy, my best friend, and to the one who holds everything together. I don’t know how you do everything you do.. You’re the best partner and father and I don’t know what I would do without you babe. ❤️ You’re Mia’s best friend and I love that (even though I get jealous most of the time because she wants you more than me 🥺) But she absolutely loves her daddy and I love that she has an amazing father like you to have by her side through life. Your guys’ bond is going to be so special ✨ Thank you for your patience with me this whole time of me being pregnant and then adjusting to life as a mother. I know it hasn’t been easy and I’ve thrown a lot of curve balls at you. But thank you. You manage to work all day, and still help out with the house and Mia with no complaint and THEN still squeeze in some time to make sure that I am taken care of. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner in life and a father for my children. 👨‍👩‍👧 Happy birthday Dillon, I love you.. 🎂🎈
