Thrift Store Diaries - Super Oversized Sweater

I think right now, I just have to accept the fact that I AM THICK.

Even Jorge tells me this. He likes it I guess, but I don’t! As a blogger, I literally have no new clothes to wear because all my other clothes just look ugly on me! And because we are new parents, shopping just isn’t in the cards for us, so whenever I do want to buy clothes, I make sure we hit the thrift shops because I know this postpartum weight is temporary.

Our First Time at the Pumpkin Patch

I knew that fall was everyone’s favorite season, but I didn’t fully understand how vast people’s love for autumn was until we visited the pumpkin patch this year.

This month, fall hit, and it hit hard, and I am so for it!

Why I'm Not Breastfeeding

The first few weeks — heck the first two months after giving birth to Adeline were so hard for me.

Like I said in one of my Instagram posts, I didn’t really give postpartum recovery some thought, so I didn’t expect all the pain that I felt. I actually still feel the pain now because my wound didn’t close up (yeah, I know huhu), but that’s a post for another day.

Today, I want to talk to you about why I am not “breastfeeding” Adeline. There will be no tips and tricks here. Just my thoughts, and my feelings about the whole thing.

Now that I’m a mom, time for myself has been very scarce and sometimes almost impossible.

5 Things I Do That Help Me Feel Like Myself Again ⏤ Postpartum Diaries

My postpartum recovery definitely took a toll on my body. I still don’t feel my 100% because one, my wound still hasn’t healed, and two, my baby weight is still on me. I know a lot of moms say to give the body time to heal, adjust, and be what it’s supposed to be for the baby, I can’t help but feel awful whenever I feel the pangs of pain down there and when I see myself in the mirror and in pictures. Like, girl, you really that big?! But I know all of this is temporary… that I will heal eventually, and that my body will shed its extra love handles.
