Now that Izzy is almost 5 months old I finally feel like I am catching up on doing normal things. Since she is my first baby, when she was born I thought it would probably take me about a month or so to get back to life as usual, and when that didn’t happen I felt like I was failing. I also felt like being mom should have come naturally to me but it didn’t, being a mom is really hard and I am constantly learning about how to be better at it. But here we are almost at half a year with Izzy, and I finally feel like I have the brain power to do a little extra, like remembering birthdays, working out regularly, making dinner (most nights) and planning ahead for holidays. I also feel so much better now that I have given up on setting unrealistic expectations for myself, sometimes you have to let everything else go and just enjoy the season in life.
Well it’s still cold and rainy here in Oregon, but we went out in our Easter dresses anyway and did a quick 20 minute shoot, thats about all Izzy could take. She was so good and patient, but she’s still getting over a cold so I didn’t want to keep her out too long, and by the way, she is actually one of the most smiley babies I have ever seen but as soon as a camera is pointed at her she goes totally blank! (We’ll work on that)
Anyway our outfits are linked below, I couldn’t find my exact dress so I linked a couple other floral dresses that I liked. The dress I am wearing is from Pinkblush, and I have to say that I have loved everything I have gotten from them, maternity and not maternity. Their clothes are good quality, reasonably priced, true to size and they always have coupon codes to use, I got this one using a 20% off code.
I hope everyone is having a great week and also has a wonderful Easter! Thanks for reading!
