A treat for your skin 

I’m sure I am not the only one who spends way too much time roaming the aisles of target. I really do try to keep to my list but… I am not always successful in keeping surprise items out of my cart. Recently I purchased a few needed products that I thought I would share because they really are so nice. All three of these items are cruelty free & free from gmo’s. You can’t beat the price either!  YOU ARE AMAZING body wash in eucalyptus mint. The fragrance is so refreshing!  ANDALOU night repair cream. The cream isn’t heavy & absorbs into the skin quickly.  ACURE brightening facial scrub. The fragrance is earthy and the texture is corse, which I prefer. I use it twice a week to increase cell turn over.     The next time you are hopping around target, check out these gems. I think you might like them. I sure do.  Xoxo

My biggest accomplishments today were bathing my son & cleaning my home. Is this real life? Slow sipping coffee and staring into the eyes of my perfect tiny child, planning meals for the week, folding laundry with a small babe wrapped around me, filling the house with music & burning candles while I clean. Such simple and fulfilling activities. The pace of life is slow & sweet. Being pinned under a sleeping babe while he naps is a joy. Feeling his little heart beat against my chest fills my soul with so much happiness. I love taking care of my family & keeping our nest comfortable. This is what I have always wished for. I’m living the most beautiful dream.

 My little guy smiles and talks (coos and babbles) so much! His personality is so big for a person so limited with words. You can read his emotions in his big blue eyes. His hand control in improving and he practices by reaching up and pulling my hair, Ha. Julian can lift his head and chest off the ground. I’m just astonished by how quickly he is growing and developing, it’s wild.  My son’s hair is still a light strawberry blonde, I never would have guessed I’d have a red haired baby. I envy his eyelashes they are so longhand beautiful! He hasn’t laughed while he is awake yet but he is constantly laughing in his sleep. So I look forward to bedtime for this reason. There is no sweeter sound than a baby giggle. 

10 weeks

What..ten weeks! Is it possible to feel like my son was just born, but simultaneously feel like he’s always been with me. Julian changes daily, the growth is astounding. I cherish every moment, every smile, every tear because I know he will soon move on to the next phase of his life and I don’t want to wish a second away.  My son is so vocal! He babbles, coos & squeals. The experimentation with the volume of his voice has begun and he has an excited and accomplished expression when he hears his new noises. I love having little made up conversations with him and watching his smile bloom as we talk. He has renewed everything in my world. As I watch him experience things for the first time it brings a new magic to the most mundane things.
