Citrus Lane!

By on July 3, 2012

Anyone else see that Citrus Lane is having a 10% off coupon code going on right now?! The code is SPRINGFUN. Check it out!

Wondering what Citrus Lane is? It is this awesome site that sends out a package monthly full of the best baby, mommy or pregnancy products. It is custom to your child’s age and gender for the baby ones. I am obsessed with this idea. I think this would make a great gift for someone who is pregnant, a new mom or for a baby’s birthday (hint, hint! Ace is almost 1, people!). The monthly subscription is $25 but the value of items in the box far exceeds this price. Example of a previous months package.

Ace | Baby | First Year

Almost 3 weeks!

By on August 5, 2011
First bath

My baby will be 3 weeks tomorrow!

He has been keeping me quite busy these past couple of weeks and I just love him to death but boy is this harder then I thought.

first bath

I am breast feeding and supplementing with formula here and there but hoping to cut that out soon. I need to get my supply up and I know that sounds like a contradiction because supplementing actually hurts your supply but I am also pumping so we will see. I am not giving up on breastfeeding though. I feel like it really has a ton of benefits for me and the bubba so I am sticking with it.

Mr. Ace is becoming more and more aware of  Branden and me. He is soothed almost instantly by me and more now with Branden than before.

He hates his carseat so that sucks but hopefully he will get better with it. He has his good and bad days with sleep and nothing is on a schedule which sucks for me but works for him so we go with it. Nights are awful but it will only get better I know this, I just have to keep that in mind when I am overly tired and trying to figure out how to make him happy.

ears like Daddy’s

Ace is a very sweet boy, I just love him so much. I can’t bare to hear him cry so I pick him up almost instantly. No, this will not spoil him until he is older and he still does it so I am not concerned. Anyway here are a few pictures!
