Nursing Happens

My on-the-go lifestyle often has me away from the comforts of home to nurse Lewis.  While out and about, I prefer to be fairly discreet while feeding my son, that I often turn to a nursing cover.

Then, like a moth to a flame; I came across Itzy Ritzy’s Nursing Happens Infinity Breastfeeding Scarf and let’s just say, I’m totally Oh-Mmm-Geee’ing over it!  The jist is simple, wear the fashionable scarf as an everyday accessory.  (Side note: I’m loving the Nantucket Navy Stripe pattern).  Then when it’s time to nurse your adorable (and possible crying) cutie, just unravel the scarf and drape over one shoulder.  Easy peazy.

In correlation with August being National Breastfeeding Month, this nursing scarf is now available at Target.  Ladies, as-if we needed another reason to walk into “Tarjaayyy” 😉 , am I right?

But because I have an “in” with my friends over at Itzy Ritzy and Target, they are graciously giving away: 1 nursing scarf AND a $50 Target gift card to one of my friends!  How’s that for an early Christmas present?  You’re welcome :) .

To win, simple comment on this blog post with the pattern you’d want shipped and a random winner will be chosen!  Good luck!

(Giveaway ends: August 25, 2015 midnight PST.)

Midwest Travels

The city life Chicago had to offer kept us entertained from sun-up to sun-down.  I gave my soles a run for their money (no pun intended 😉 ) given the miles I clocked in navigating Millennium Park.

And what’s a Chicago trip without trying a good ol’ fashion deep dish pizza?   The taste was on point, but I stand firm in saying that pizza should be eaten with your hands.  None of this silly utensil stuff.

To cap off the week was a long weekend in Iowa.  A state I wouldn’t necessarily put on my “must-see” list, but one that quickly won my heart for a few reasons.  One in particular was the ability to unplug.  I don’t think I Instagramed one photo while there.  Now that’s a vacation.

Four Months

4 months old baby // tummy timeJuly baby  // Lewis at 4 months oldfour month old baby // calendarI better get to mastering shutter speed on my camera because getting a descent photo of Lewis proved to be a challenge this month.  It’s probably a good indicator of what the future months are going to look like.  For starters, he has little patience for tummy time practice and would rather flip himself onto his back.  I don’t blame the kid.  Exercising isn’t my strong suit either.

Speaking about being on the move, he loves to rapidly flap his arms and legs while sharing one of the most adorable wide, open-mouth smiles I’ve come across.  I tell ya, his smiles make me want to pause time to live in that moment.

For more of Lewis’ monthly calendar photos see months: 3, 2, 1, and birth.
