I realize that’s it been a minute since I have given a mom life update. I love sharing my kiddos and talking about my journey through motherhood, but sometimes I get so focused on the fashion posts, the mom-life posts get pushed aside. After Anna turned one I stopped the baby update posts, but now that she’s turning 18 months this month, I decided I wanted to take a minute to catch up on life with 2 kids.

As a parent, we are always concerned about the safety of our children, especially when they are babies. From the moment they are born we start to worry. When I brought my children home from the hospital, I didn’t want them to be far from me, especially at night. It was important for my babies to sleep close to me in those first few months so that I could be sure they were safe. I’d often find myself waking up in the middle of the night just to make sure that they were still breathing. With Jack, I kept him in our room until he was 3 months old, then moved him into his own room to his crib. His room was right next to our bedroom and I could hear him easily with the door opened. I never registered for a baby monitor, because at the time we had a little one-story condo and I didn’t have a need for it. The second-time-around with Anna, things are a little different.
