Welcome Friend

Welcome Friend just another boy mom handling life with iced coffee in one hand while roaming target aisles.

Meet Brandi

It's Mommy Monday
My first highlight is to my Instagram Giveaway Partner in Crime, Brandi. I "met" Brandi on Instagram and enjoyed her friendship I've been in the audience as she traveled through pregnancy & now glistens as a new mother!

My name is Brandi! I'm a child of God, wife, momma, small business owner (#LSBBL), + a blogger (littlemommalife.blogspot.com). I'm so excited to "meet" all of you!
What advice would you give to a woman who is pregnant or beginning life with a newborn? 
- Trust your momma gut! I could go on and on with what worked for us, but every baby is different! YOU know YOUR baby best! Listen to that gut feeling- God placed it there for a reason!
What would you tell pre-mommy you about life with babies? 
- It's the BEST + HARDEST experience that you'll ever have in life! You will be overwhelmed at times- sometimes with stress, but many times with love! Take it day by day.
You're in the store with a full cart & a frantic baby - what do you do? 
- Stay calm! The calmer you are, the calmer your little babe will be! Most of the time when my babe is frantic but I still need to check out, I do my best to calm her down + I worry about checking out later! (Oh, + if people stare, kindly ask them if they know where the off button is. ;] )
What is in your Mommy Must Have list? 
- oh gosh. This one is HARD. We have found so so many things helpful. If I just have to choose a few, I think I would choose our baby carrier, our Snuza Hero, + our Halo Swaddle.
What is your MOTTO? What gets you through the day? 
- I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me. Anything that comes our way, I know Jesus will get us through it! He's gotten us through 100% of our days so far, + He won't fail us now.
What is your BIGGEST piece of parenting advice? 
- Do not be hard on yourself. You will have so many decisions to make as a momma; it's never ending. BUT, whatever decision YOU make is what's best for YOUR family. Who cares what the mom next to you is doing? Your family = your decision!
What is your parenting style?
- Hmm... I'm honestly not too sure about this one. I think it might be easier to answer when my babe is a little older. I guess I would say that my parenting style is to be the best role model I can be, so my little babe will grow up knowing her worth + her beauty, inside + out.
What has been, thus far, your favorite memory with your child(ren)? 
- oh gosh. My best has been the very first time I held her when she was born! But other than her birth, I think it would be the first time she smiled at me because of me! I cried because it made my heart just explode with love.
Mommin is hard- real hard. But my goodness is it the best experience. Even your bad days are good days when you have a baby. I have a friend that always says to me- The days are long but the years are short - + it's SO true. + remember, you ARE a good mom. You ARE doing a good job. You ARE loved. And don't you ever forget it.
