Was the discount of buying it used (only 1 year) worth the 3 hrs it took for me to figure out how to put the straps and padding back on?? 🤷🏻‍♀️I think so.
Thankfully the cleaning part was the easiest part. Toothbrushes and little pipe cleaners for the tight areas combined with some OnGuard cleaner makes the world right again. I can feel safe knowing this car seat is clean.
Now after installing it and realizing I might need it more reclined but can’t get the thing to budge, I realize how safe it must be. Safe and solid! It’s not going anywhere. Might need to wait til Mike gets home to recline it a bit more bc it almost put me in labor trying to get the thing out again!
Don’t worry- deep blue is happening now and my lower back is calming down. The things we do as parents. Car seat washing and installing ranks high on the degree of difficulty for me. Might be my slight OCD to make sure it’s clean and safe.
Where’s my kombucha??? Mama needs a drink 😉

Our new tree looks like it ate our old tree from our days in the Mays Landing condo. Decorating soon (and buying a lot of new ornaments, apparently). #christmas2018 #christmasdecor #christmastree #christmastree🎄 #angel #star #nutcracker #babyprep #39weekspregnant #9fttree🎄 #holidayliving #9fttree

As part of our adoption homestudy process, we recently took a special adoption preparation class through “Baby Prep” in Vancouver. I’m not going to lie, my inner scorned, angel momma self was dreading this... but what I’ve actually gained through the homestudy process in learning a lot about parenting adopted children is that it’s actually given me a healthier relationship with baby stuff overall. Being able to skip all the TTC, pregnancy anxiety and learning about actual parenting has been very therapeutic. So while my old self would have hated this class, recent me actually really enjoyed it.
The instructor really knows her stuff and all the info was super practical. Highly recommend this to anyone in the Vancouver area who is adopting or for anyone getting a baby somehow... she’s probably got a course type for you. And you can do a private session in your own home. This is all the “what do you do with it once its home” stuff you need. It was really great to do a tailored class to our case. Rainbow mommas, go get yourselves some Baby Prep with Kathleen. #babyprep #adoptionprep #prenatalclass #yvrprenatalclass #newbornpreparation #adoptionjourney

☀️Hello! It’s me! ☀️
This week I’ve been peeling back a few layers and doing some important soul searching. Whilst rebranding and creating some great new material to help my clients, I’ve been looking within to the qualities I have that attracts people to me and that my family and friends have always said they love about me. ✨The funny thing is, that for years I’ve cast those compliments aside and not allowed myself to believe them. Because I didn’t see those qualities in myself or that they were valuable enough to recognise. Fear and comparison held me back. I was always wanting to change something about myself or questioning my abilities and never felt good enough or qualified enough! That’s why I have 5 diplomas... BUT NOW I am able to look within and say confidently that⚡️⚡️ “I am ME”. “I am enough”. “I am who you need me to be because that’s what you are seeking out”. And do you know what lovely people? It feels FANTASTIC! ⚡️⚡️Sure there will always be some element of me to work on and learn from, but for now. This is me. ✨✨✨Over the next few weeks I’ll be telling you all a little more about these qualities and why I believe they are good enough to serve others and most importantly, make you feel good and smile. ✨

So... I've gone there tonight! (Yes I know it's ridiculously early!) Getting super organised before the new arrival! Presents wrapped, turkey pie for tea and the tree up! #hohoho #superorganised #christmasiscoming #babyprep

Night time nappies...
.
With the move to washable nappies, we needed a solution for overnight use. Bubba is quite a heavy wetter, especially with the additional night time feeds! 😴
.
We’re using the @totsbots peenut wrap system so have added x4 bamboozle nappies & they are wonderful!
.
Highly absorbent, they catch absolutely everything! With the waterproof wrap on top they have NEVER leaked, unlike disposables I had been using that would fail almost every morning.
.
Their designs are 👌 with brilliant names: doodlebum, Plop, Daydream, Waddle, Roar, just naming the ones we own!
.
I can’t recommend them more! The washable way of life is life changing, not only because of the dramatically reduced waste but it’s so much easier than it looks! You just have to keep on top of your washing.

I'm in the process of preparing our home for another little one. ⠀

The nursery is prepped, sleepers, and receiving blankets are washed.⠀

Now to stock up on essential oils to help support baby's transition to the outside world and my recovery!⠀

These are just few items I'm excited about. The doTerra Baby Kit includes moisturizer, body was, and diaper cream made from essential oils and the elephant diffuser projects a starry night sky and plays music!⠀

Interested in learning how oils can support you and your littke ones? PM me!⠀

Baby Prep // Finally trying to freeze some food for when baby comes. Also finally used all the ‘pureed carrot’ my landlady gave me from her juicer! Which I’m grateful for because heck no would I be grating carrots at this point in pregnancy 🙈🥕🥕 Recomendations on how to freeze muffins and waffles plastic free for about a week or two (cause let’s be honest I may eat them sooner than that)? We only have a small freezer. .

Oxytocin is a fascinating hormone. Some call it the love hormone! It is abundant during acts of love but also during birth. For obstetricians a synthetic version is used artificially to strengthen uterine contractions, but the natural hormone does so much more. For the most part its role is not fully understood.

In birth, there is a very delicate combination of hormones that triggers and allows birth to happen. We don’t fully understand all the different interactions between these hormones, but feelings of fear and anxiety can definitely disrupt this balance.
Oxytocin allows for strong uterine contractions that help dilate and efface the cervix.
Oxytocin also helps with milk production during breastfeeding.

Did you know you can stimulate your body’s natural oxytocin by rubbing your nipples? Some swear by this technique to kickstart labour! Ask your doctor or midwife if that is safe for your pregnancy.
Fun fact! I used to be a biochemist in a previous life and spent hours upon hours writing out organic chemistry reactions and compounds like the one above 😃 yeah, no, I did not have this one memorized...
