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.
First trimester-done and dusted. During the long wait for this baby I often thought about what I wanted my attitude to be when the time finally came to be pregnant again. I asked the Lord to help me settle firmly into gratitude and “setting my eyes to the hills” rather than complaining. It was much easier said than done but aside from some true down-in-the-ditch moments, I reset quickly into being so thankful for the opportunity to be growing life again. With that being said, this trimester was my absolute hardest ever and I’ve truly never been more glad to kiss a first trimester goodbye!
