my favorite thing about today #66.

My favorite thing 
about today was….
Taking Fern to visit her grandpa (my dad) 
at his work (Bob’s Red Mill).
{Isn’t she so cute with her little visitor badge?}
Today was my first day by myself without any help from family.  I’m healing pretty well from my delivery, just a little slow doing anything, but that’s to be expected.  Breast feeding has been pretty difficult, so we spend most of our days sitting on the couch working on it.  It’s getting a little bit better, but still a work in progress.  
It takes forever to blog because my hands are pretty tied up with feeding Fern and most days I’m lucky if I’m able to grab something to eat, let alone run to the bathroom.  I’m not complaining….it’s just been a lot different than I thought.  I’m sure it’ll get easier though.  
I’m terrible at emailing one-handed, but I can spend time on my iPhone, so feel free to keep me company via Twitter or Instagram!
Hope you’re having a good week!



  1. Hey dude! have been reading your blog for about 2 years and I find it strange but so amazing to have watched your life evolve on screen if you know what I mean? Haha. Congratulations on babeh Fern! Just gorgeous. Your blog is so fun and nice to read!I have a new one now if you ever fancy a wee read…
    take care xxx

  2. what a cute picture!
    I admire you for even finding the time to write this post!

  3. What a fun visitor for your Dad to have. I love the badge… I bet everyone loved Miss Fern.


  4. So awesome that you are still finding time to blog. I love the size of Fern compared to the badge!

  5. It does get easier! The newborn stage is tough, you have so much adjusting to do (like the one-handed emails). My daughter is 15 months old and although toddlerhood brings on a new category of challenges, I’d say, overall, it’s much easier than the newborn stage.

  6. Seriously, this was exactly the same for me at first. It really does get a lot better!

  7. Aw SO cute! I bet Grandpa loves little Fern =-)

  8. Aw, Fern is such a beauty. And your dad looks so happy with her! Many if my good friends have kids and I’ve seen how lovely but difficult the first few months can be. Hang in there girl because you’ve got a big blessing!


  9. The cutest visitor ever! I like to make the rounds with the Bean to visit grandma/grandpa/daddy on their lunch hours. Too fun! Hope your 1st week flying solo is going well! Those first few weeks are definitely all about survival mode:-) Every day gets better and better! xoxo

  10. What a sweetie! She looks so tiny next to that visitors badge.

    Also, it does get easier. Or at least that’s what they tell me. 😉

  11. Adorable photo of Fern with her Granddad! She is so so precious 🙂

    And I’m sure it will get easier… and that you’re doing a wonderful job being a Mom!


  12. Keep up the good work, Mumma bear 🙂 It’s not easy, I’ve been watching a few of my friends and I honestly take my hat off to you guys!
