When i met my husband, he told me that if he ever had kids, he’d name one of them lofton after his favorite baseball player, kenny lofton. fast forward five years to a positive pregnancy test and my husband reminding me that this little baby, boy or girl, would be named lofton. i had people tell me that it was bad luck to name the baby before it was born...like counting your chickens before they hatch...but we didn’t care. it felt good to give that little life a name. .

Marry the guy who washes thousands of bottles without complaining. who massages your baby’s arms and legs every night and makes up really really bad songs and sings them really really badly. marry the guy who looks at you like you are the best thing that ever happened to him. who dances with you in the kitchen and has family meetings with you on the rug. who jumps in when you throw up a white flag of exhaustion and tells you you’re pretty when you have tired eyes and baby puke on your shirt. marry that guy. i promise you. you’ll never once regret it.

My whole life i dreamed of becoming a mom. i dreamed of rocking my babies to sleep, patching up scraped knees, kissing away tears and cheering them on from the stands. there was a point a couple of years ago where i worried that those dreams would never come true. i had 32 tumors removed from my u****s in march of 2016, a cancer diagnosis and surgery in july of 2017. radiation three months later. i worried constantly that all that with my body had gone through, it might not be able to carry a child. and so i prayed, whispered my dreams out into the night in the hopes that if i said them enough, it might make them come true. it seemed almost like magic that the following july, one year after so much struggle and pain, i stood in my bathroom staring at the faintest of pink lines. it took my breath away. on march 1st, the sweetest and most beautiful little boy was put into my arms and for every day that’s come after, i get to rock him to sleep and whisper thank you, thank you, thank you. .

Let’s talk about wall decor for a second. the biggest mistake i see people make is that they are afraid to go big! they put a collection of frames or decor pieces on the wall and they are so small they seem to just get swallowed up by the wall. things feels cluttered, messy and not always cohesive. the solution? have at least one large piece to anchor your eye and fill in around it. try to stay away from smaller pieces and choose ones with similar textures and color schemes so that they all end up feeling like one big statement. for me, simple is always better. like these three prints i had made for lofton’s nursery. .

1. babies f**t wayyyy more than i realized.
2. babies like to mess with you. like to keep you on your toes. they sleep for 8 hrs one night and 2 hrs the next. it’s super fun.
3. i liked thunderstorms way better before i had dog with anxiety and an infant.
4. i could smooch this little face a million times and it wouldn’t be enough. who knew double chins could be so dang cute??

He may look all cute and peaceful here but he peed on grandma twice and projectile barfed all over mom after his bath. we need all the thoughts and prayers we can get over here as we try to move this guy into his crib. his rock n play was just recalled and this mama isn’t taking any chances. any advice? send it my way! .

Today’s the day! giving this head of hair a chop! mostly cause i’ve been sweating my behind off. #hormones 😂 and babies are little furnaces. summer is coming and mama needs a change. plus, i might just fall asleep in the chair while charley does his thing. anyone else feel like they need to go into a new season with a new look? .

As someone who 1. used to pretend to be a mermaid anytime i was in water...the bathtub, the pool, the hot tub and the ocean🐳 and 2. feels most happy and calm after a long early morning walk on the beach, it’s only fitting that today feels like it was made for me. it’s #internationalmermaidday everyone! if you can, get to the beach...get your feet in some sand...pick up a few pieces of trash as you walk and breathe in that salty air. i’ll just be over here telling sweet baby lofton about all the long beach walks we will be taking this summer. .
