This is my first blog post EVER. I decided to start one because now, being a stay at home mom I feel its almost necessary to express whats on my mind and whats gone on in my day for my sanity! HA
A little information about me: I was born in Germany, as my Dad was in the Air Force. We moved back to teh US before I was two, and since then I have always lived in WI. Primarily I grew up in Milwaukee area, but I did live in Green Bay for 8 years. Roughly 3 years ago I moved to Dodgeville, WI when I married my husband Josh. We bought our first home in August of 2009!! Its an older home that we have been remodeling--a work in progress but its a lot of fun. As a housewarming present we bought ourselves the cutest little dog!! She is a toy rat terrier and is about 6 pounds full grown!! She has been our baby and has been spoiled to death for the last two years.
However, we now welcomed the most amazing little girl into our lives!!! Our daughter, Claire Elizabeth,
was born on May 17, 2011. I am proud to say that I had a natural birth with NO pain medication! It was an amazing experience and am soo blessed to be able to have gone through it. As a new mom, there are a lot of emotions and thoughts run throught my mind every day! I want the best for my daughter, and I want her to know she is part of a family that loves her and would do anything for her. I want her to grow up and be very healthy, and for me the best start to that was to exclusively breast feed. I am SO fortunate that she latched on PERFECTLY right away and I have not had any issues (yet). I know for a lot of moms, they run into so many difficulties that makes it hard for them to breast feed, so I know I am blessed to have it easy. Also, I am a cloth diapering mama!! I prefer to use One Size diapers and One Size covers. I am primarily sticking with Bum Genius, Fuzzibunz, and Grovia brands. I also will be using Imaginiff prefolds. My life revolves around my daughter now, so i am sure a lot of my blogs will be about my day with her:)
