As of late I’ve had sleepless nights wondering how it would be possible for me to love my unborn baby as much as Alyssa. I couldn’t help but wonder. How on earth is it possible to share your love equally? Surely the bond between a Mother and her first born is stronger?
People say that when your second child is born you don’t halve your love you double it, but I was really struggling to fathom this. I really wasn’t planning on discussing this at all as I was a bit ashamed about these feelings, but once I read a poem I recently found, I knew I wasn’t the first and I won’t be the last. It literally had me in tears… these d@mn pregnancy hormones!!! I am going to read this every time I have the slightest feeling of doubt that “doubling” my love is not possible! Here it is:
I’m a big fan of Kuaui’s Date and Nut muffins, even more so since I’m expecting. The problem is that they don’t bake them at every store and the stores that do bake them only do it sporadically. So last night I thought I would take matters into my own hands and attempt to make some of my own.
With 12 weeks remaining before we meet our new family member, lot’s has been happening as we prepare for his arrival. I am going to try my best to relax as much as I can now that I’m in the third trimester, however my mind is working overtime thinking about my (never-ending) to-do list.
I absolutely love the concept of Bundle Box by the Babygroup. Designed for the needs of new moms with products to make life a little bit easier during your pregnancy and in baby’s first year, the goodies in each box are handpicked to your specific needs.
This would be a way for a new mom to try products and see which ones work for her without the commitment of buying a large quantity. It would also be a way for new moms to find options they hadn’t even thought of yet!
I was lucky enough to receive a box to review this month, which consisted of 3 great products. The box arrived with cute packaging and filled with products that I would actually use.
