I’ve been trying to find a good way to ask this but i give up.... so please know i am not speaking for every woman or experience just my own πŸ™ last week i took ophelia to her 12 month appointment and the doctor asked me if we were still breastfeeding, i said yes, and her immediate response was to switch ophelia to whole milk in a sippy cup because “at this point it is just for comfort not nutrition.”.. having fought so hard to pump and feed jessamyn making it to a year of breastfeeding with ophelia and planning to continue on maybe to two years was something i was excited about but now i honestly just confused and sad and wondering if i should even continue? so this isn’t a post about breastfeeding being better... how you feed your baby is how you feed your baby and that’s not up for comparison or debate... but this is my personal experience and a question for breastfeeding mamas... when did you stop? did you see benefit after a year? i want to keep going but also don’t want to be ridiculed at the doctor every time we go so yeah that’s all i got πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ˜ž #honestmotherhood

All the coziest vibes and a baby in knits because it is fall and i am shamelessly embracing every cozy moment in our cabin! πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ‚βœ¨ #sponsor our mattress is new and it is from @nectarsleep and we are completely obsessed.. we got a frame with it which yes means we are no longer sleeping on the floor and it came packed in a tube which meant no crazy maneuvers to get it into our little bedroom. i blogged about it (there is a link in my bio) but seriously if you are looking for an amazing night sleep @nectarsleep is so good.. so so so good and thats including that fact that ophelia still gets me up like five times per night πŸ˜‚πŸ™ŒπŸ» #mynectarmatress

πŸ”Ί with a side of β˜•οΈ because it is 18 degrees and the snow is coming... β›„οΈβ˜•οΈβœ¨ #thislittleaframe_
on a semi serious note (serious meaning life for all my pumpkin babies) will they survive the snow? or should i bring them inside? there are only like 20 of them soo i mean it will definitely make the cabin cozier πŸ˜‚πŸ˜«β›„οΈπŸŽƒβœ¨

I get asked all the time about our parenting style.. to which i never have an answer because the truth is we don’t have one 🀷‍♀️ i am pretty sure the only thing i’ve taught jessamyn is that if it’s cold out carry a warm beverage and when in doubt always, always be the one to bring flowers πŸ™ŠπŸ’β„οΈβ˜•οΈβœ¨ #honestmotherhood

One of them was excited to learn that you can in fact make pie out of pumpkins... the other disappointed that they didn’t have “scary faces” πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚ already carved on them but i mean hopefully by the end of the month i can make both their dreams a reality πŸŽƒπŸ™ŒπŸ»βœ¨ there is a new post up on my blog talking about my fall beauty picks from @riteaid including @aveenous and @ogx_beauty (link in bio if you want to check it out) ben already stole the lotion i picked sooo clearly it’s a good one πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ˜˜βœ¨βœ¨ #riteaidbeauty #perfectskinhairpairs #ad.
also if you have any skin or hair care tips of your own for fall i want them.. living at 9950 feet is totally drying me out πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ

Still snuggling and eating salad ❀️ we are obsessed with @eatsmartveggies salad kits like completely they have clean ingredients and are so easy to assemble! also honestly for me they give me no excuse not to eat healthy on a busy day because it’s all right there and takes like 30 seconds to put together! also they have so many good kinds... which ps. i didn’t realize fruit on a salad was a thing but now i’m kind of in love! πŸ™ŒπŸ» ( ad ) #saladsmarter

Instagram: flowers and babies and moody seattle weather because let’s face it that’s basically all the things my heart craves anyway ❀️ reality: the girls and i all have horrible head colds 🀧 (remedies welcome) and i’m getting through the worst post vacation depression (that’s a thing right?)😫 by starting to plan our next trip πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚ sooo seriously destinations that would be fun in february welcome... β˜€οΈπŸ–i kind of want to go east or like florida (or maybe a ski destination?) but haven’t actually gone that way much so any suggestions would be πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ» #darlingweekend

Don’t be fooled by that sweet face if she was the queen of anything it would be “the queen of no sleep” 😴 or actually “the queen of still breastfeeding 5 times or more all night every night” πŸ™ˆ #sendhelp #butijustloveher
