I want to jump back again. I feel like that’s the story of my life, wanting to do something, waiting too long, so having to rewind. Before I share all of our fun baby meals we’ve been doing- I want to share how we started the world of solids, Chester’s favorites, and other items we loved using as we navigated those first few months. You can read my post on our favorite baby cooker here.
Now that we’ve shared our time in Charleston here, I want to share one of my favorite parts of our trip. We rented a car and hit the road early one morning after grabbing some coffee and biscuits at Callies hot Biscuits (a southern must) and made our way to Savannah, Georgia! We were way to close not to go for a quick visit and I’m so glad we did.
We just got home from another trip which reminded me that I never shared our time in Charleston! So let’s play some catch up… this was a good one! We’ve been dying to visit here for as long as I can remember, we finally pulled the trigger just in time to visit in late September!
How in the world is my sweet baby almost ONE!?! When I was heading towards his due date, I had been working on so much new content all about nurseries, pregnancy, labor, and so on. I have been blogging now for what seems like a lifetime. Never being good at it, just posting for fun, but I am going on I think 6ish years maybe even more of having a blog? I really dove in around 2014 after Chase proposed and I feel like I’m finally in a place where I absolutely love my space, can think of content that is true to me and also beneficial to you, AND hopefully gives people a space of freedom, hope, and love.
I’m not one to really feel anything spectacular when the New Year comes around- sure I like to reflect and think about all the amazing things that have happened and even the hard- but I don’t set new goals, I don’t start working out if I wasn’t already, and really I just kind of move on.
This year feels different. It feels quiet, it feels painful, it feels heavy. Assuming you’ve been here before- we welcomed our sweetest little baby into the world and I don’t want anyone to mistake our hurt for not seeing how amazing and incredible this year was- trust me, it trumps it all. But truthfully we are ready to put this year behind us.
Oh how I wish I was posting pictures of Chester opening gifts surrounded by family, eating amazing make ahead breakfasts, and showing off his cutest Christmas outfit but instead we spent our holidays home alone bouncing between our bed and couch. Our sweet little babe came down with a stomach bug, then a cold, and finally ended with croup.
I can’t believe Christmas is in 7 days. We’ve been trying to mark off all of our seasons bucket list activities and live it up every chance we get. I wanted to slow down for a bit this morning and share some of our favorite christmas books as well as a tip on getting your books for super cheap.
There’s something about traditions that make my heart so happy..
We kicked off our Christmas with our yearly tradition of cutting a tree down the day after thanksgiving and spending the day throughout our home decking the halls- this year was more special for obvious reasons!!
So when I launched my new design for the blog earlier this year, I had planned to do a load of old posts I had saved that had to do with all things newborn. But in great Kaylee fashion, I can’t find the folders- BUT some of them are SO good, I am going to redo it all because it’s so worth it and every new mama needs these things! So first off- our obsession for lovedbaby.
