I have been coveting these jeans. Paige denim is my favorite post baby. However, I probably will buy these, because #momlife.
What are you shopping for??
Our little girl is 6 months old and I thought it would be nice to tell you what was working for us at this point in her life. It'...
Being outside in the summer can sometimes get monotonous for the kids. Same water toys, smaller pieces (half chewed) chalk, bikes and sand box. I'm constantly thinking, pinning new ways to occupy their time. However, their imagination is so rampant it almost happens organically.
I started the 100 day project this week on instagram. It has been something I have considered doing for sometime. I thought it would be something creative for me to do and share. I feel very inspired by so many of the artists that make something daily with their project. I specifically was motivated by Elise and her 100 Pep Talks. I decided that I could do that and help some moms and yoga teachers. 100 days is a long time, but I am excited!
I define myself as a mom sure, but some days I forget that I am also Kathryn. I have thoughts!! Since I am not teaching yoga as much because of my husband's schedule and lack of a babysitter, I thought this might be a good outlet for some yogic inspiration. You'll have to take a peak.
Here was yesterday's short piece. Or you can look at the hashtag #100daysofpeacockpep
This little girl has started crawling and pulling herself up on things. I was secretly hoping she would just continue to only crawl, but I'm afraid she will be walking before fall! This has been the scene around here lately. Lots of movement.
It seems like there is very little written on the internet regarding this topic in children. I have read countless forums about parents struggle with their kids pulling out their hair. Since October, our daughter has been doing that... one strand at a time. She has been a thumb sucker since around 4 months of age. When she would nurse, she would grab my hair. This was something I didn't really think was odd, because MANY babies have that reflex that makes them feel grounded when holding something. With Everett, I was always good about grabbing one particular blanket while nursing. He eventually became attached to it, and still is! Unfortunately, Eleanor and I never got into a rhythm of a particular blanket. When she transferred from the crib to the toddler bed she had a pillow instead of laying on the sheet. She stopped sleeping on her belly and started laying on her back. This created the habit. In addition, I fear I started it too by giving her pigtails. She hated it and would pull out the hair ties. Unforatunely, we didn't notice this until Christmastime when she started balding on one side of her hair. When I go back to pictures, it was obviously present in October too.
I am writing about this because I think I found some helpful tools that might benefit other parents. I haven't really found anything consistent. I know if we take away the thumb sucking it will remove the hair pulling. We tried this sleeve, which is hard for her to remove, but it also was impossible for her to settle herself down at night. I've tried socks on her hands, a turban hat, a blanket with little balls,
finger huggers, soft blankets1 2 and 3, but nothing really satisfies her desire to twirl one strand of hair in between her finger and thumb.
I recently found this ring and bracelet. I want to make some type of ribbon on a bracelet because she would love to have her hand by her hair still. Any thoughts on this, please let me know!
am so excited to give my readers a chance to win all three of these amazing items.
