Fox themed baby items are everywhere right now (and I think you’ll see more of them in 2018). Without realizing it, I bought River a little fox Christmas toy as well as a hooded blanket and stuffed animal! So when my Gerber Childrenswear Brand Ambassador onesies arrived in the mail I was stoked to see that they were fox themed and have cool 3-D pieces and textures! You might know Gerber Childrenswear from the plain white onesies used at baby showers for everyone to decorate, but the brand has so much more available, including several new lines in partnership with Target, like the fox onesies I got!

When you have a baby, you’ll realize very quickly that everyone has an opinion and they aren’t afraid to share it with you. What they don’t tell you, however, is what those first few months of postpartum are really like. This lack of disclosure creates a lot of confusing emotions post-baby. Your emotions are such a roller coaster and you often feel alone, both physically and mentally. My story has several elements that resulted in a fairly tough journey.

If you’re anything like me, most of your holiday shopping is done from bed while nursing the baby or when sitting next to your older kiddo while they watch MOANA again.

During my pregnancies, I had hardly any morning sickness, no backache, and I worked out up until the morning my water broke with each girl (both of whom decided to arrive at 37 weeks and 2 days, almost to the hour). Labor and delivery with each girl were also straightforward — no epidural, about 10 minutes of pushing, and those stinkers were out. No trauma, no epic story to share. One dissolvable stitch was all I needed. But my postpartum experience with each was very different. Read more
