Well, I’ve officially been breastfeeding 16 weeks. It’s crazy how fast time flies by. I’ve had someone attached to my nip 2-4 hours out of every day for almost a third of a year. SAY WHAT! While my experience is short in comparison to some others, I have still learned so much. So, here it is. Some of the good, the bad & the ugly I’ve come to know to be breastfeeding.
Well, I am sleep deprived, fosho. We got 4.5 hours of sleep last night because E was up every. single. hour. after his first stretch of almost 3 hours (thank God for that one).
So, I’m new to this SAHM (stay at home mom) thing, obvs. Some may have it down pat come 3.5 months, but I’ve been pretty wary still.

It’s funny because I’m the type of person who always wants to be around people. I don’t really thrive with “me” time & actually tend to get bored with it.

I was 19 weeks & 4 days pregnant when we had my anatomy scan to find out the gender of our little one. Some how I convinced hubby into having a gender reveal party & I am SO glad I did.
It took me a few days to decide how I wanted to reveal. It needed to be unique. There are so many cake reveals & balloons in a box reveals floating around social media lately. Not that there is anything wrong with those, you know I just gotta be different. 😉 I tossed around a few ideas but when I stumbled across the Confetti Cannon Kit, I knew that is what we had to do! How fun is that!
