I’m 38 weeks pregnant this week. These days are long and sweet and challenging and beautiful.
No matter where you’re reading this from in the world, I can guarantee April didn’t quite go to plan. We’re still in the midst of the global pandemic Covid-19 and we’re all Sheltering-In-Place AKA staying home. All the time. For weeks on end. I’m also very pregnant (37 weeks this week!) so that is a factor as well. Here are the things I used most, found most helpful and enjoyable and was most grateful for this past month excluding this beautiful, fancy Dalgona coffee because I just couldn’t get on board. I tried my best!
I found out I was pregnant with Keogena before Oshiolema even turned 1 which meant I didn’t need to purchase any big ticket items for her newborn phase. Aside from a couple new things that came out the year she was born (hello, Dockatot,) every baby item we own was purchased during my first pregnancy which was six years ago. SIX! I’ll be doing a complete round up of all my favorite newborn, baby and postpartum items soon but for now here are the few current purchases I’m making before baby arrives.
I didn’t do a monthly favorites last week because I shared my Second Trimester Favorites Video, but there have been a few things both intangible and tangible that have been extra special to me in the past month of quarantine life. Here are some photos and a little peek into the items and routines making my days much sweeter lately.
