  • Life is a beach and Ben’s just playin’ in the sand. 🎶 I am really proud of how well Benny is doing as a big brother. He had a rough time leaving me in the hospital and being home without me, but other than that he’s been a champ! He is so gentle with Sloane. He says things like, “Her tiny toes are so cute!” “I like her little hands.” “Want some chocolate milk, Sloane?” Don’t worry: we don’t actually let her have chocolate milk. 🤪

  • Took all three kids on an errand by myself today... and this is what it looked like. 🤪 Ben was in PJs all day and I didn’t put shoes on him to get Blaire from school. So he squeezed into some really dirty/too small shoes we found in the car. Blaire said her one boot hurt but the other didn’t... explains why she is wearing one of each. And Sloane slept. Even if they looked a little wild, they all behaved and that’s all that counts to this girl.

  • Yesterday was my due date and today marks a whole week with Sloane. To celebrate, I shared her birth story on the blog before and now I’m going to take a nap. 💕🌈🤪 •

  • @tristapeterson_ “today was the due date for our baby who we miscarried at Christmas. It’s a hard thing to mourn this day for our baby in heaven, knowing we will have our baby girl here with us in a few months. it makes me feel like I don’t appreciate this rainbow baby, but I do. obviously. being pregnant so quickly after our miscarriage has helped me to cope, but this day was still hard. my anxiety has been high these past few weeks. I’ve been trying to give myself grace, but as moms it can be so hard to make time for ourselves, to prioritize our own health. —
as I sat in the waiting room at my OBGYN yesterday I couldn’t help but think of all the times I’ve sat there, broken-hearted. during my fertility appointments while we were trying for our second baby. during all of the ultrasounds and appointments for my pregnancy in December. seeing people come out with their strips of ultrasound papers. laughing and smiling over their sweet baby. something I had done before without giving a second thought to the fact that other people in the exact same waiting room might be having one of the worst days of their life. I wondered if anyone there was having one of their worst days and prayed for everyone there. —
I’m not sure there’s really any point to this other than to say life is full of good and bad, ups and downs. if you are going through a bad time now, just know you’re not alone. this bad time will pass.
—
people don’t always share their bad, so can’t we all just treat others the way we want to be treated? be kind. be the reason someone smiles instead of being another reason they frown. •”

  • 39 weeks tomorrow and I guess Ben is the only one who took it easy on his mama and came during week 38. The girls are apparently stubborn and are not leaving without medical intervention. 🤣😭😭😭 I have my 39 week appointment tomorrow and we will talk through options for being induced and, we’ll, I’m hoping it’s an option to go straight from the doctors office to the hospital because this mama is more than ready to meet the final member of our family.

  • mama & Benny time this morning. it’s 65° and NOT humid even though it rained allll weekend long. windows are open, candle warmers are on, laundry is going and we’re watching Paw Patrol in bed. The house isn’t *clean* but it’s picked up enough. 🤷🏼‍♀️ I’ve been having contractions all day and night these past few days, but they never get stronger so who knows how much longer until baby sis will join us. until then I might as well cuddle this little boy and enjoy the quiet! ❤️

  • #ad It’s so surreal to me to know I’ll be nursing another sweet baby sometime soon! Breastfeeding was definitely one of the hardest and exhausting parts of being a new mom. I shared a post last month with 8 tips for surviving breastfeeding / the things I wish I had known before Blaire was born. The link is in my bio. ❤️ Comment below and tell me what surprised you the most about breastfeeding. 🤱🏼@evivohealth #myevivostory #evivoXL1 •

Making Mornings Simple with Reynolds Heat & Eat

SHARE THIS

Packing a Lunch

Mornings are always crazy around here. We always have more bags that I have hands, which means lots of trips back and forth to the car. Adding to the craziness lately — trying to leave myself enough time in the morning to pack a lunch! I am the. worst. at taking a lunch to work. I just love getting out of the office for lunch (Also I’m always running late. Also I hate cooking.) We typically have leftovers we want to take for lunch (vs. frozen meals) but storing the leftovers in lunch-box friendly containers is always a pain. IF I succeed at all of the things I mentioned above (packing a lunch, getting it into a container that fits in my lunch box, and remembering to take it to work) then going up to the lunch room and rinsing it out when I’m finished eating is just absolutely the last straw. That never happens… my poor husband. (He does all of our dishes. Thanks, Jason!)

Imagine how excited I was to try the Reynolds™ Heat & Eat Disposable Containers. For all of the reasons listed above. They’re made of plant fibers and are a great alternative to plastic. Jason’s favorite part? No need to clean the containers, just toss them out when you’re done! They come in a few different sizes, one for large portions and one the perfect size for your lunch box. Just don’t look for them in the tupperware aisle… they’re with the Reynolds™ wrap. ;)

We’re loving our Reynolds™ Heat & Eat Disposable Containers and they’re making our mornings a little less hectic. PLUS they’re helping me stick to my budget (less money on lunch means more money on maternity clothes!), which is a win/win, right?! The best news? You can get a coupon to try them for yourself! (You can find the coupons through the Reynolds site here or through Coupons.com here!) If you’re really feelin’ like an overachiever, you can find lots of yummy recipes perfect for your Heat & Eat container on the Reynolds site!

  • Prepping for our third baby has been pretty easy so far. I guess when you have an older sister and brother, plus a mama who likes to hold on to everything from her babies, there isn’t a ton of shopping to do. The kids are having fun picking out little gifts to give baby sister in the hospital (something Blaire still talks about from when Ben was born), little toys here and there, PJs, and this @babyeinstein 4-in-1 Kickin Tunes Music & Language Discovery Gym at @target. I wasn’t joking when I said they wanted to test it out! #babyeinstein #ignitecuriosity #socialspotters #blaireandben #happilytrista
  • #ad I can’t believe this girl is heading off to kindergarten! With afternoon pre-k last year, we were lucky to not have to worry about the morning rush. So this year, our go-to is a waffle and a chocolate milk for the ride to school. Horizon® Shelf Stable Chocolate Milk is our favorite since we can easily grab it and go! Spoiler alert: she takes one in her lunch, too. Blaire is so excited, but little brother and I are sad to see her spend so much time away from us. But I am excited to be able to walk her to school and avoid the CRAZY drop-off and pick-up lines while the weather’s still nice, anyways. 
You can find @HorizonOrganic Chocolate Milk at @KrogerCo and you can even save $1 with this digital coupon (7/24/19 – 8/6/19). And you can stock up because Horizon Organic milk boxes are shelf-stable, meaning you can safely store them in the pantry. Shop now through the link in my bio. #blaireandben
  • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome
