Since Kaia Was Born…

I’ve had a ton of friends and social media followers ask me questions on what my postpartum journey has been like- so I figure why not blog about it!

Kaia is almost 10 months old now, which means I have 10 months of postpartum adventure & experience to talk about! It’s been amazing, but it’s also been tough at times.

The moment Kaia was born, was (besides marrying my husband) the best moment of my entire life. Kaia has the most beautiful, bright, and happy heart. She’s the happiest, smiley-est baby I’ve ever been around. She’s already taught me so much and opened my eyes to a whole new realm of love. The amount of joy I’ve experienced since she entered the world, has me SO excited for tomorrow, the next day, and all the rest of them.

Kaia was born on November 1st- in the middle of football season. Because of this, Rhett would be working more than full time, and we both decided to hire a night nurse to help out during nights until football season was over.

Q & A

I gave you guys the green light on my instagram to ask me ANY question, promising I’d post them on my blog, along with all of the answers! Here they are:)

Q) Are you still modeling?
A) Yes, BUT family comes first. I have my dream job now- and that’s being a Mommy! :):) If a modeling job means I have to travel too far or be gone for too long, I will turn it down.

Q) How old are you?
A) Old enough that I’m going to lie about it. 26.

I Had a Baby (part 2)

I want to share my story with you for two reasons. 1) I want to be bold and honest in my experience because there are too many women on social media portraying an easy/glamorous/perfect birth. There is no such thing. We are all human. 2) I had so much fear leading up to this moment that if I could do it all over again, I’d let the fear go and welcome the experience more.

All I knew going into this was: 1) The plan is to have no plan. Expectations are never good for any situation, and emergencies can happen. 2) I don’t want any drugs. Epidural…preferably not, but definitely no actual drugs.
