Happy New Year!! I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday season. I enjoyed lots of time with my hubby, and our family. My daughter, Sofia, is 6 weeks old, and she is starting to show her personality a little bit more. Which my hubby and I love!! This was Manny Jr.’s second Christmas, and he was really excited to open boxes, and push them around the house. It’s so true what people says about toddlers and gifts. Give them an empty box, and they really will be in heaven for days with it.
The past week the temps have been the chilliest I have felt in Houston in a long time. I had planned on taking Sofia on a walk the day we took these photos, but with the chilly temps we decided to stay close to home. We did get outside for a little fresh air, and so my son could play outside. He loves exploring the outdoors. I brought Sofie out in her carseat, and Ellie Ears. These are an amazing new baby product from Modern Barn that every new baby needs. I ran across them while looking at Jillian Harris’s Instagram. Yep I love me some celebrity new mommas!! So I got really lucky when I found the Ellie Ears because I had literally been looking every where for something that would keep the new babies head centered and supported. With my son I tried using the newborn insert I had bought for my carseat, but that only worked for about 2 weeks because a week later the lower half of my sons body was too big for the newborn insert. The problem was his head still needed something to help support, and keep him centered in his carseat. So when I found these in month seven of my pregnancy I emailed the Ellie Ears company to make sure these were the right fit for what I needed. Thankfully they checked all the boxes for keeping the new babes head centered and supported. The next best thing is they come in couple different patterns, and they even have matching blankets you can order.

As a new mom for the second time around, I would love to know what your must have baby product were.
Since I haven’t completely lost all the baby weight I have been living in these stretchy comfy dresses, and of course some of my favorite loungewear. Not being back to my post baby size has been an adjustment. I promised myself I’m not going to be hard on myself. I try to remind myself Angela it took 9 months to put this baby weight on, and it’s going to take sometime to lose it the healthy way. So I’m staying positive, loving the new me, and what my body has made. It’s pretty crazy to think a little over 6 weeks ago she was hanging out in my tummy, and now she is here. Now back to the outfit. I promise I won’t be so long winded on every blog post. I thought since we were going to be outside I might as well dress up a little bit. Plus I’m guessing my neighbors have seen me enough in my pajamas getting the mail. This is a non maternity dress that I wore while I was pregnant. I have to say it is really comfortable on. I added this long BP cardigan that I’ve basically been living in, and this necklace that I made myself. I did a tutorial all about how to make it here. It’s one of my favorite necklaces because it brings back memories of being a kid at camp doing arts and crafts. That was seriously one of my favorite parts of camp.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope y’all have a fabulous Monday!! Don’t forget to take advantage of the 15% coupon code for your Ellie Ears!!
