A month old already and Enzo’s tininess and soft lanugo hair is fading away. It’s so hard to image what life was before we became a family of four.
I’m so excited to share with all of you my maternity photo’s that my amazing friend Corinna of Corinna Schutz Photography took! She’s is up here in the Santa Clarita area and has done our family photos and even took Enzo’s newborn photos that I can’t wait to see and share.
I listed a couple of these essentials in my birth center bag post and thought to do a separate post on my postpartum must haves. Oh and pardon me ahead of time if my words are a bit jungled. The newborn wakings (every 2.5 hrs) is starting to take a toll and extra coffee in the day is needed now.
I’ve been asked a lot about how our transition has been with two kids. Even though we’re only about two weeks in,… everything has been going really smoothly. I even feel really good post partum, still sore, but Jezriel has had to remind me to slow down & just relax.
I wanted to share a few must have items that were essentials for us. There were a ton of items that I felt we could have bought later down the road, but… hey I didn’t know our parenting style 🤷🏻♀️.
In addition to stocking up on those diapers, wipes, and clothes, below are items that popped into my head.
When preparing my birth center bag with Cataleya’s pregnancy I was a bit confused what to bring because I couldn’t find an example list anywhere online. They were all for hospital bags!
We officially have ✌🏼rear facing car seats installed and it’s so weird! This past weekend Jezriel and I met up with our Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST) to double check our install on the new seat and if Cataleya’s convertible seat needed any adjustments.
When I was pregnant with Cataleya I think I owned maybe two maternity items. I didn’t want to spend the money on them given you only wear them for a few months and I also didn’t like how they looked.
When Cataleya was first born we bought and returned so many baby monitors, but none worked for us. Even though we constantly found ourselves needing one, we still got stuck eventually not having one 😩. A few issues we had with other monitors was the connectivity, clarity both day, especially the night vision, and poor audio.
