Family Snaps

September 21, 2020

Today I thought I would share a few family snaps. Some already posted on Instagram or Instagram stories and some to come. I recently shared this snap of me wearing sweet baby Jane in this fun leopard carrier on Instagram. After seeing it on a few other bloggers, I fell in LOVE. I did not love the price though, so I started hunting around for a used one. I was thrilled to find one on Facebook Marketplace – total score! I’ve come to really love baby wearing! It’s such a fun and easy way to get in some extra baby snuggles while being hands free, and it’s especially nice with kiddo number two. My striped t-shirt dress is only $15 and a favorite! Last seen here.

Family Zoo Trip

Russ has had the most amazing paternity leave EVER. This past year his company switched to offering six weeks, and he has taken the full amount. He goes back to work today. I think we will all be in mourning. I cannot understate the positive affect it has had on our start to becoming a family of four and how grateful we are for it. On Thursday of last week we decided to take our first real outing as a family of four to the zoo! It was a beautiful day to do something safe outside, and we had a blast! I was sweating by the end, but it was worth the memories. ๐Ÿ™‚ My fun tie dye t-shirt is $10 Amazon find. I’m obsessed and want the solid colors too! We have ventured back to church as well (ours is meeting outside). It feels really good to be starting back to some semi-normal things.

    I love the Arti Poppe carriers, too – how amazing that you found a used one! Definitely a mom win! Love these photos of you two. Hang in there while your hubs returns to work!

    I know which carrier you’re talking about, it is quite expensive, so that’s awesome that you were able to find such an awesome dupe! I love the leopard, so cute and perfect for fall, too! When I had Aviah, Eddie was only able to stay home for a few days, when we had Ariah, on the other hand, he was able to take a couple of weeks and it makes such a huge difference! It’s so helpful and also great for baby to bond with dad, too. Glad your hubby was able to have ample time! Have a great week ahead, Amy!
