My husband and I LOVE camping and we finally got to take our little 9 month old with us for his first camping trip this past weekend. I'll be honest, I was extremely nervous leading up to the trip. I had literally lost sleep stressing over questions in my mind like: WHERE does the baby sleep? What should he WEAR to sleep? How will we know he is warm enough at night? How do you keep them clean? Where do you PUT them? I did tons of research before we left and all I really learned was you just have to go with the flow and everything will be fine - babies are resilient. No matter how many blogs I read, probably the best piece of advice I got was from a personal friend who recommended the use of a tent heater at night. That was lifesaving advice for me because it gave me piece of mind about keeping him warm at night. I will be blogging later with my own tips and must-haves for camping with a baby in another post later this week, but for now, I just want to reminisce on our little weekend getaway in the mountains...
My husband and I bought our first house together in November 2014. Immediately after closing we discovered I was pregnant with our first child. So naturally all the focus for the past year and a half has been about preparing for the baby's arrival, learning how to be a mother and keeping my baby alive rather than decorating our house and buying furniture. Well now that I am finally feeling a little more settled in my role as a mother, I have finally had the chance to start dreaming up ideas for turning our house into a home...
