Hey, all you cool cats and kittens! (And no, I still cannot get enough of Tiger King. Have you seen the Joel McHale special on Netflix yet? How is it?). How is everyone, and how are you all holding up? What are you doing to pass the time? If this is your first time here, welcome to My Pixie Blog! A lifestyle blog written by a Jersey girl (raised, not born) who loves pit bulls (and our dog Milo), vegetarian food, spreading awareness about mental health topics, and a fine glass of Riesling (but I don’t discriminate–a cheap bottle does the trick, too). I’m also a proud new mommy of a tiny little rainbow baby named Mila. She is my world, and you can read her birth story here–I detail my experience of delivering a baby during coronavirus, since there wasn’t much info a few weeks ago. I really hope this is useful for any first-time or seasoned mommas experiencing these weird times in L&D. Reach out if you have ANY questions!!
Now that that’s out of the way, let’s dive in to this week’s gratitude. As always, I’m linking up with my sweet ones Lindsay and Beth from our lovely Peaceful Posse group on Facebook. Don’t forget to link up with us below, and here’s my shortlist of happy moments from the week!
Getting a hang of this whole pumping thing–slow but steady wins the race
My new Adidas kicks–DSW had a 40% off sale on everything and well, I took advantage. Cute, right??
Good news from the pediatrician (Mila is eating well and almost at her original birth weight!)
Seeing my parents on Easter and introducing them to Mila; it was also the first time I was able to see my dad since his bypass surgery mid March
FaceTime with Bryan’s cousin and family
Getting surprises in the mail
Lemon bars–I’ve legit made this recipe three times already and it never disappoints
How excited our families get for new Mila photos
The adorable baby blanket we received from our neighbors–they left it on the stoop this morning and I almost broke down in tears because I spoke with the mother about how hard this is since we can’t have family over. It was just so touching she thought to gift us something <3
Reconnecting with an old friend going through some tough times
Funny memes (need ’em now more than ever!!)
