Shalyn Bessler  I was born under a wandering star ✨ Mama + Wifey 👶🏼💍 Finder of daily bliss 🌿

As parents it’s so easy to question everything. Is she getting enough stimulation, sleep, human interaction, tummy time, solo time, time being held, time being set down, playtime, quiet time, milk, music, books, blocks, toys....the list is seemingly endless. Am I* doing enough? Am I doing too much? Is this right? Another ongoing list. Of all the things we as parents question, gratitude is never one of them. Of all the things I’m curious about I am never curious about how grateful I am for this life. 💛✨

Having @zackthomasw off yesterday and temperatures in the high 60s did everything for my soul ✨ I get a little stir crazy if I’m cooped up for too long with a babe. Soooo grateful for this warmer weather yesterday and today. To be able to get out for a stroll is so refreshing. I’m looking forward to summer when every day is an off day for my sweetie. Is anyone else ready for the cold days to be done or do you want to hang onto winter just a little longer?

When it’s 60 degrees in February, your hub is off work, and your baby naps you celebrate 💛 I’m always, always, always grateful for this life. Sometimes days are just easier and I appreciate life just a little extra.

I’ve always been a firm believer that if you can’t put something on your body you shouldn’t put it in your body. My consciousness went into overdrive when Elliot was born. When you have a tiny human and things seem overwhelming it’s nice to have some peace of mind. Thats why when I discovered my favorite household cleaner @seventhgeneration also had a baby line I did a little happy dance. 💃🏽 It feels comforting reaching for products containing organic coconut oil and other plant derived ingredients. When anything else can freak you out it’s good not to have that happen with your baby’s body wash #generationgood

Last night I enjoyed a meal out with @zackthomasw A meal that wasn’t rushed, consumed standing, eaten one handed at room temp, with a baby in arms.... So naturally I missed Elliot the entire time. It’s weird how that works. You crave this solo time, time with your partner, time with friends and then once you get it you spend the entire time wishing you were home with your babe.

This Friday is fueled by caffeine and great humans. Both of which provide a recipe for success. I realize more and more how important it is for me to do things that not only get me out of my house but out of my neighborhood, out of my comfort zone. Meet with a stranger, have discussions with people doing entirely different things than you. Keep growing, keep learning, keep improving.

OUI are so happy to celebrate this day of love! 💞❤️💞❤️

HAPPY MARDI GRAS YALL 🎭 Super jealous of @nweldon22 Dawn and Xavier and @sammisweetheartindy and everyone else celebrating #Nola style. @zackthomasw and I are doing our best to overindulge this way. Then it’s time to reel it in. Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday which marks the start of Lent. What is everyone’s Lent Sacrifice if you participate?

Elliot Claire is 5 magical months into this beautiful life. Every time the month mark hits I think it can’t possibly be more rewarding and every single time I’m proven wrong. She’s my light ✨ We are constantly learning from one another. So here’s to another magical month learning, loving, growing, laughing 💞

Left my phone at work last night and just got it back. I think subconsciously I left it there on purpose. It felt really, REALLY good to have a device free morning. I try to keep my 🤳🏼 to nap time or even when she’s nursing🤱🏼 but that doesn’t always happen. So it felt great to not be distracted this morning. Especially when I’m already feeling like 💀 and feel like I can’t give her the attention she deserves. Which brings me to my next topic of discussion....is everyone in the world under the weather? What the hell is going around?

What Friday nights look like around here these days. I thought not going out would be the hardest part of motherhood. Of course I miss limited responsibility, my friends, that extra bev but it’s interesting to see the ease of the transition into parenthood. I’m coming to the realization that while giving up so much of myself I’m gaining so much in a completely different way. Sure some nights I still get #fomo or live vicariously through Snapchat. But it’s in moments like this where I have true appreciation for ALL of it. The old, the new, the present. .

Feeling confident about overcoming this napping hurdle with Elliot😴 She functions better and is happier when she is well rested. As we all are! Hopeful that I’ve got the tried and true technique down and will see more naps in the future. I feel like a much better mama when I can have a little solo time. I’ll admit it’s been a struggle trying to get it all done when the girl just does NOT want to nap. As frustrating as it can be I am definitely grateful for her curious little mind. Don’t ever stop being curious, little one 💫
Anyone else out there have a babe that just refuses sleep during the day? I should note she’s an excellent sleeper at night! 🌚
