*PS: I’d been hearing great things about LulaRoe for a while now and finally got to test it out after my friend Melody stopped by with some of her inventory. Perfect timing for my post-baby body as nothing fits and LulaRoe prides itself on flattering clothes for every body type. What I kept: the softest leggings ever and a flattering kimono to match. Win!

To shop: LulaRoe does not have catalogs or a website you can order from as all sales are done through consultants. Instead you can join Melody’s facebook group and take a look at what she’s got! All consultants have different inventory (they can pick sizes and styles but the prints are a surprise!). The clothing comes in a limited number of prints and it is super comfortable and flattering on women of all sizes (it’s really true).

Best part: If you shop during August, you can take 10% off your first order with the code KBAER10. Cheers.

PS: Do you also have thousands of pictures on your phone that you’re either a) scared of losing or b) wondering how to print? Enter Chatbooks photo books. I can sync my Camera Roll favorites or my Instagram feed to the app, and when I get to 60 pictures, they print these little books for just 8 bucks shipped. I’ve been using them for years. The kids love them too. PS: This week, use my code KATEJB for 20% off everything!

I don’t have any sentences left, but here are 47 pictures of my infant (Novi’s First Month)

July 14, 2016

Novi is a month old this week, which is just old enough for people to start asking how I’m going to go back to writing my book while having two young kids and a newborn at home. That’s a great question! Let me know when you find out.

So far we are okay. The transition going from two to three has been harder than going from one to two, but we persevere. If you ask me why it’s so much harder, my finger would point straight to the older two, but we don’t need to talk about that. Only 57 more days until school starts! The good news is the baby is healthy and the other two are still alive, so I count that as a win. Their toddler screams and battle cries only serve as the baby’s white noise, and from what I can tell–he will probably not be as fussy as the first one. Another solid victory.

Austin and I always joke that because we don’t go to church, we don’t have that built in system for meals when something really good or really bad happens (babies, earthquakes, etc). Which is why we are always surprised by the women who show up at our door, dropping off pans of lasagnas, enchiladas, and fresh garden vegetables. Women sending us our favorite take-out or thoughtful gifts or words of encouragement from far away. Women helping women because they know how hard this is and how these small efforts makes a big impact. People are good, church or no church. Very thankful for that.

It’s been a hard month, but a good one too.

Oh Novi, we love you so.
