On recovery: Yesterday was the first day I didn’t need pain meds! And, what’s even more exciting, is that I can finally pull my knees up and sort of sit #crisscrossapplesauce when I change #babygirl. These are big feats post #csection, especially since my doc said there was a ton of scarring and weird healing from my first csection. I also slept in my bed for the first time last night (with a #cosleeper for baby). I’ve been pent up on the couch since I’ve been home, and it’s done an absolute number on my neck. Still feeling overwhelmed with many other things (and total #lackofsleep) but happy that some things are moving right along ✔️ I can say one thing for sure, this sweet little girl is worth it all🎀🦌 Now, I need to find some #lactationtreats that are actually #glutenfree. Who has time to make those from scratch with a newborn?! #csectionmomma#heretodocumentthejourney#breastfeeding#sweetgirl#longnights#pumping#recovery#csectionrecovery
There’s been major conversation amongst us and @alilbitsalty that if sitting criss cross apple sauce, as I like to say it, is a CF thing. We did a poll the other day and more than 80% of you said YES you prefer to sit like that!!! Then I was reading the @fivefeetapartfilm book and it actually said Stella would specifically sit with legs cross-legged on her hospital bed. I’m wondering if this has to do with anything specific? Maybe it’s how we sit in bed, how we are more comfortable doing treatments? I always thought it was because I was short and can’t reach the floor 😂😂😂 if anyone has any incite on this matter, let us know below 💜💜⬇️⬇️ — P.S.Also today I went and got my port flushed and sat criss cross with my legs 😂😂 — P.S.S. CHRISTMAS 🎄 IS ONLY 2 WEEKS AWAY!! What is on your Christmas list?!? ⬇️⬇️⬇️ — ❌⭕️❌⭕️ Tiff
tired and sore muscles need attention. S l o w down and give them some ❣️. I’m totally preaching to myself because I hate slowing down but I did this morning. And guess what I learned?? S t r e t c h i n g causes an increase of energy because of the increase of circulation. 🤸🏻♀️❣️ Grab a mat or a soft spot and stretch it out...come back and drop me a 🤸🏻♀️ when you’re done!
Do you wanna know why this silly pic is significant? I haven't been able to sit #crisscrossapplesauce style since August when my nerve damage happened. Yup--Such a totally silly little mundane thing, but it's amazing what becomes significant in life, lol. Especially when you're like me and you have total leg ADHD as it is, being able to sit in different positions and be somewhat comfortable is critical to living that best life, haha. 🤷♀️ #itsthelittlethings#smallvictories#babysteps#nervedamagesucks
She’s obsessed with books, and I’m obsessed with her.😍😍😍 Side note, notice how’s she sitting?!🙈. Mommas, if you see your kids W sitting like this...fix it! It’s a common position for kids to want to sit in, but its not good for their little hips. It can increase their risk of hip dislocation in the future and does not help with developing strong core muscles.😬 So don’t worry, shortly after I snapped this picture, I had to tell her to “fix her legs.” This is a multiple times per day thing.🤦🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️ #crisscrossapplesauce #ptmom
This is a great example of how quality of materials can have a huge impact on...well, impact. The design? As boring as can be. With the wrong materials, this could easily be a one or a two - completely ignorable or even repulsive. But the stone used here is really nice: the slightly rough-hewn edges and irregular height of the tiles couples with flecks of luster within each square to cast an effect of quality. It draws the eye to something even as simple as a grid of small squares. 3 out of 5. #ignoreoradorethefloor#posh#crisscrossapplesauce
Ok!! 😂 Spence and I couldn’t wait any longer to share this pose with y’all. 😂 We even gave y’all a few #reality videos in the last two slides. 😂 We both had a lot of fun recreating this pose. 😂 Hope y’all enjoy the laughters as much as we did. 😂 How is your #thursday night going? 😂 #namaste🙏 😂 F.Y.I spencer is NOT choking me!
