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.

This whole journey has surprised me in every stage, whether it be when her teeth came in, nursing after she turned one, and now while I’m pregnant.
I’ve been meaning to give little updates on my pregnancy on the blog, but it’s been so challenging. However, I’m determined to document the memories because I’ve now realized how much I’ve forgotten my pregnancy with Cataleya.
