ON THE BLOG: We had our birth class last week and we learned so much that I did a round up of the 5 most important things we learned. .
.
I think the information is relative whether you are planning on giving birth at a hospital, birthing center or at home. 🙌🏻
.

Feeling so dang grateful for this pregnancy and the opportunity to carry this little bean in my belly while I carry my oldest in my arms!✨

Candid. Not curated. This is my tribe. These are my people. ✨
.
.
There are a lot of photos that I “save” just for the eyes of my family as they feel too personal to post on a public platform. This is one of those photos. 🌿No it’s not “click” worthy, no it won’t go “viral” but man oh man does it shoot an arrow of gratitude straight into the temple of my heart. ✨#candidchildhood

Because women are fierce, strong and mighty. My #310shake, is a plant-based, sugar-free protein powder I am drinking to make sure I am staying healthy and getting all the protein I can during this pregnancy (for some reason have a strong aversion to meat while pregnant). 🤷🏻‍♀️
.
.
I try to walk at least 2 miles a day and swim laps when I can so the extra protein helps keep me fueled.
.
.
I’d love to hear from you guys on who’s seen results with @310nutrition? Comment below, and I’ll be responding ☺️ 🙌

Well, this is 30 weeks. On the blog, writing about our natural birthing class tomorrow and giving you the scoop what 30 weeks looks like around here.
✨ has anyone tried hypnobirthing, water birth or anything else interesting that I should look into?

There are days when I wonder how I am going to divide my attention and love between my first child and this new baby. As Winter is verbally excited about the baby's arrival, I know there are some huge adjustments on the horizon. She feels things so intensely (I mean just look at that face in the photo...so many emotions.) ✨
.
.
One thing I do to help prep her is to read her letters that I wrote to the new baby using this timeless journal by @thesimplestories. There is something so magical about having her in my arms, longingly looking up at the journal while I read out loud so the baby in my belly can hear too. I can't wait to write in this journal every year on this sweet new baby's birthday. #birthdayletterstomybaby #sponsored

I am 30 weeks today. Freaking out just a wee bit as I still haven’t hired a doula, I think I’m one week behind on my midwife appointments and we have absolutely nothing in terms of a bassinet, co-sleeper, etc 😱 .
.
Is this what the second kid is all about? Tell me I’m not the only one who procrastinated to get stuff done with their second born. 🤦🏻‍♀️ necklace from @jaysandjewels

Happy weekend, friends. I feel like I’ve been going a million miles and hour and forgetting to pause. The universe is telling me to slowwww down... .
.
If you saw in my stories I scratched another car in the parking lot and then I got a parking ticket 🤫 (don’t tell my husband, jk). .
.
So this weekend, I just want pause and surrender to each moment. No more rushing around 😂 Anyone got a good movie recommendation? 🎥

A few of you have asked me why I don’t talk about my work as a school psychologist as much anymore and on the blog I’m answering your questions. .
.
After a long debate, I decided to not return to my position in the fall. It was a really tough decision—one that pulled at my heart strings and made me question my identity...but it’s also one that I don’t regret. I had to take the leap of faith. More on the blog ✨

The other day, I was desperately asking you guys for some good parenting books and you came through ten-fold! 💪🏻
.
.
Everyone had such amazing recommendations, so I rounded it all up ON THE BLOG from parenting books, podcasts and websites! 🙌🏻.
.
.
🙌🏻 Tag someone who might want to check it out. You guys rock! 💕💕

I just wanted to extend my gratitude to each and everyone of you. 💕Thank you for being here, thank you for adding to this earth with all of the beautiful, kind and contagious energy that you exude...and most of all, thank you for being you.
You matter. YOU ARE IMPORTANT.

A new marriage post is live on the blog. Taking about us starting back at couples counseling—why we are going, what we expect + highlighting the importance of a crisis plan in case I get postpartum PPD/OCD again. 💕
.
.
I love my marriage to pieces but we have to make sure we’re going in as solid as possible before this baby comes! Let me know if you read it and any questions/comments you have! 💑 #normalizeppd .

If you’ve been following me for awhile then you know we are raising Winter bilingual in Spanish and English and that we got engaged in Oaxaca, Mexico. Perry actually asked me to marry him in Spanish.🌹🌺
.
.
Perry and I feel so connected and in awe of Mexico, so it was a no brainer to team up with some incredible local artists (hair, make-up, floral crown, photography) to do a maternity shoot with a Mexican flare. 🎉✨More photos from us playing tourist in Denver at 28 weeks pregnant on the blog! .

Romper is from @renttherunway (I have a discount code for you on the blog). They carry maternity now too! #renttherunway
