April: Life Lately

April Life Lately // girl about columbus

APRIL: Time is a thief! Where did the second half of this month go? Ever since Ellie was born, I feel like time is FLYING! Sure, I’ve had long days and nights since she was born, but all in all, things are going pretty well around here, adjusting to life with a newborn. I’m just SO HAPPY she’s here!!! Feeling very blessed.

Listening to: Maroon 5’s Red Pill Blues album – so good!

Reading: The First Forty Days: The Essential Art of Nourishing the New Mother

Published: Our First Family of 4 Photos, Introducing Ellie Anne, and What to Pack in Your Hospital Bag.

Shopping for: Spring/summer tops for myself (like this eyelet top and this smocked top, both on major sale) since I haven’t been able to shop for almost a year! Also, bought Ava a pair of super cute sandals and these water shoes that she insisted on and has been wearing as everyday shoes! Also I got these fun Target buys: This seagrass napkin holder (it’s the little things!) and this plaid outdoor rug (I also LOVE this one).

Watching: Finished the entire series of Mad Men on Netflix – now we’re onto something a lot lighter – Parks & Recreation! We also are going to start 7 Seconds per recommendation of one of my gf’s!

Loving: The newborn snuggles and how Ava constantly checks on her sister, giving her tons of hugs and kisses daily.

Working on: Figuring out life and a routine as a family of 4!
