Throwback to March 2017. To when Abby was just a squishy baby fresh out of the bath... and mama still wore her bangs in a [much too big] poof 😂🙈
To a time when laps and toys and attention didn't need to be shared..
When bedtimes didn't need to stay on a schedule to get everyone in bed before 9...
When there was an abundance of time for cuddling a freshly bathed baby and snapping photos of her amazement of the littles things...
Take a look at the flip side though, the in between the lines, and you would have saw a baby girl who was constantly at the Drs office for ear infections, who always had a runny nose and cough from a the most recent cold (or was it the same one? they all ran together it seemed...), who slept on my chest in the recliner for 3 months and even when we got her to sleep in the bassinet FINALLY, took hours to get to bed and woke frequently in the night, who wanted to be held 24/7/365 and basically lived in my wrap during the day. There was A LOT of unhappy baby in between all the happy photos - let. me. tell. you. She even earned the nickname "Crabby Abby." Poor girl... she just had big emotions and needs
It was a time when I started looking for answers. Beyond the "elevate the head, run a humidifier, give tylenol for comfort, and saline + suction of the nose." Beyond the "she's just more prone to ear infections." Beyond the, "there's nothing else we can do except wait it out. She's too young for anything else." March of 2017 I ordered my Starter Kit from Young Living, because I wanted MORE for my baby girl. I wanted sound, restful sleep. I wanted calmer + happier days. I wanted relief from her cold symptoms. I wanted options. I never would have guessed I'd find all that and so much more!! THIS Thursday at 2 PM I'll be doing a Facebook class all about that same stater kit!! Check out the link below to RSVP! Open to anyone + everyone interested! I will be a giving away a thieve roller + sample bundle to one lucky person who attends! 😁 Don't miss out on what could possibly be one of the best "Yes"es you ever gave!!
