Had too much fun at great grandma’s 85th birthday party 😴 And guess what, Nico turned #15weeksold! I’m documenting this surreal, crazy, amazing #firstbaby journey from #20weeksplus pregnant. Anyone else as utterly clueless as me? For fun, friends, and posterity.

“ Breastfeeding isn’t always an option for everyone; and in some case, it may even be discouraged. The crux of it is that there is no right or wrong answer – the best way to feed your baby is to do what works: breastfeed, bottle feed, do it all – just don’t beat yourself up or feel like a failure.

Whether the breast glands work or not has absolutely nothing to do with whether someone is a loving, kind and engaged mother. The ability to breastfeed has become a litmus test by which one’s worth and value as a new mom is measured, and this is ridiculous.

It’s time to move beyond the politics of breastfeeding and respect each parent’s decision for how they feed their baby. Babies need to be fed — the mode is not as important as the love provided while doing so. Being a mom is a long journey with countless opportunities to nourish and support your child — this is only the first.” - dr. Carly Snyder reminds us that motherhood is not one size fits all.

Remember, you can’t do epic sh*t with basic people😎✌🏼💯 #yourvibeattractsyourtribe

“Hello, my name is Amelia. Aren’t I the cutest kid you’ve ever seen? Well, my mommy thinks so.” Played around with some infant photography today. #phoenixphotographer #arizonaphotographer #jawhittonphotography #bumpingoodtime #sweetbabygirl #infantphotography #kidphotography #cuteasabutton #newmomlife

Doing the first bottle feed due to blood sugar levels. After the bottle feed comes the first poo and it’s safe to say it’s Logan 1 - Mom 0 as he weed all over me 😂🙈 #newmomlife #newbornbaby #loganwilliamarrowsmith

Our #familyfridays wraps up with a final cartoon from Emily Flake dealing with every parent’s fear: bullying. Swipe ➡️

She writes: “There’s a scene in the brilliant film, “Let The Right One In,” where the little girl vampire counsels her human friend about his bully situation: “You have to hit them back. Harder than they hit you.” It’s advice that speaks to the law of the jungle that dominates the playground—that law, like fairies, might be invisible to grown-ups, but it’s very real. It is not, however, responsible advice for an adult to give (even if it’s better advice than I got as a kid). So what do we do when our kid is being teased or bullied? And how do we advise without replaying our own past traumas?

LSTers, thanks for joining us and head over to @eflakeagogo for more cartoons and humor.

Today has been one of the worst days of my life. We rushed Evelyn to the ER after she fell from high up and landed on her head, an image that I keep replaying. Trying to navigate in a town we weren't familiar with the trailer hitched added to the stress and I ended up having to pull her from her car seat and run the rest of the way to the hospital. Thankful her scans came back clear and she was quickly back to her joyful self. When we were cleared to head to our next camping location (there is a hospital close by although we hopefully won't need it.) I gashed my toe open and tim & I spent this evening doing "surgery" on it through my sobs and gulps of whisky more from the mom guilt setting in than actual toe pain. Then so many other things that seem so little in comparison to Evelyn's fall but it's just been one thing after another stacked against us today. Thankful we are all OK, bumps & bruises but it could be so much worse. And praying for a much better day tomorrow. Hug your littles, and learn from my mistakes today and try to slow down Mommas. 💙

Because I just can’t with this face 😍#girlmom #gerberwho

Continuing with our #familyfridays with Emily Flake (@eflakeagogo), she writes: “This is a drawing from my book, Mama Tried, which is readily available from The Store, by which I mean Amazon. Truth be told, I did not doodle this while on the phone with the pediatrician; I doodled it while on hold with my insurance company, who had just blithely informed me that my daughter was not, in fact, covered for a month after her birth, but rather 48 hours. That’s less time! It all got sorted out in the end, but if you’ve ever tried to navigate the byzantine maze of insurance with a head full of hormones and tits (full-ish, and rather suddenly) of milk, you’ll understand why we need single-payer in this country, like, yesterday.

When you have a small living space, you still try to find ways to stay organized and make it work. Now granted I have been finding a few toy cars but it’s still #mommystoychest
