June: Life Lately



Early Arrival

This month has been a bit chaotic due to the early arrival of my baby. He came an entire month early. Needless to say, I was not ready. I then spent a week in the hospital recovering from a c-section. Sadly my little boy couldn't come home right away. He ended up needing to spend some time in the NICU.

The room for the boys is still a work in progress. I was hoping to do a room reveal soon, but I don't see that happening this month. I've made some changes to the textiles that I am really happy about. I found new swaddles and a new quilt. But other than that, not much progress has been made.



Blogging and Social Media

I have already doubled my page views and have grown my Instagram and Twitter following.  I also grew my Pinterest by 100 followers. I didn't post as often as I would have liked but have been too busy with life.

I did have a brand reach out to me about doing a post. However, that was a lesson learned kind of thing. I put in time to review their product and promote it on social media. Then they wanted me to remove that they contacted me to review their product! Never doing that again.

Family

I am so lucky to have such a great family. Being in the hospital for a week and having to visit the NICU, I really needed someone to watch my oldest boy. My husband's mother was able to take time off from work to watch my little whirlwind. 

My mother is currently here from out of state. She is such a great help. She is helping me with stuff around the house and with taking care of my two boys. I am still a bit sore from my c-section, so I will take all of the help I can get. 

Upcoming

I'm really just taking things one day at a time right now. I am hoping to get a schedule down so I can fit time in for blogging and other leisure activities.
