sweet on

If you've stopped by lately (thank you!) you've probably noticed that things are getting a little dusty 'round here. What can I say? Life with a newborn is keeping me even busier than I imagined it would! I'm hoping to get my act together soon and keep a more regular schedule on the blog. In anticipation of mt "return", I thought I'd share with you some of the items that I have treasured in the nearly 7 weeks since our little G was born.

These incredibly comfortable pants have helped me immensely in that transitional 4th trimester. Ah, for the love of elastic waistbands!

Bare Escentuals bareMinerals eye shadow 
I love this stuff. Bare Minerals concealer in well rested makes my complexion look fresh (especially those dark circles under the eyes) even when I'm not feeling particularly well rested!

Our little man loves to move! My hubby and I spent lots of time trying to figure out what type of stroller we wanted (travel system, lightweight, etc.) and finally settled on the uppababy vista. It's a pricey ride, but we really liked that this stroller could take us (or the baby, rather) from infancy up past the toddler stage (I had no desire to have more than one stroller taking up space in our home, especially after clearing out all of the clutter in my nesting stage)! Plus, it's adaptable for a second kiddo if the time comes. We couldn't be happier with our choice. It rides like a dream.

black with camel lining baby carrier
Handy and versatile as that stroller is, we can't exactly wheel it through our two-story home! Here's where the incredible ergo baby carrier comes in. Our babe happily nestles in this pouch and does one cute marsupial impersonation. Nothing helps our kiddo calm down faster like a little cuddle or walk in the ergo. And I get to roam around with both hands free!

I've never been great at hydrating. It's strange--I realize I'm thirsty and then get distracted before I actually pour myself a glass of water (not to mention drink it). This yummy calorie-free, flavored, bubbly water helps me get my 8 glasses a day (a must when nursing!).

Another child-soothing investment we've made recently is the mamaRoo by 4moms. Our kiddo loves the gentle bouncing and swaying action (particularly the car ride setting) and the white noise feature really puts him in a zen-like state. For more interesting tunes, we just plug in our ipod!

star bright sleeping bag
As a new mom, I can get pretty nervous about everything that might go wrong (did I swaddle correctly?), so I love products that simplify. Our baby boy stays just warm enough in these lightweight sleeping bags by Aden + Anais. And they're so cute. Love them!

 Now I know he doesn't qualify as an item, but this man has gotten me through these first 6.5 weeks of motherhood! I have the most amazing husband a girl could ask for. Really. Truly. Thank you, Andy!

have a lovely day, Amy
