Say Goodbye to Baby Brain and Hello to Organization

Weekly Pregnancy Planner by VSHOP

This pregnancy I have had some serious baby brain. Before being pregnant with Sophie and experiencing pregnancy first hand I honestly thought that pregnant mamas, new mamas, and just mamas in general were making the whole baby brain thing up. For those that don’t know….. It is FOR REAL! There is no avoiding it, one day you realize you no longer have a short term memory and you literally have to write every. little. detail. down in order to remember it.

To make myself and how bad my baby brain is even more clear… not that long ago I shared on Instagram that I was 35 weeks pregnant, after going onto my app later that night I realized that I was actually only 33 weeks pregnant (I had checked the app a few hours before making the post and still made the error). I am sure that the lack of sleep also contributes to the lack of memory too.

Anyways, what I am getting at is, what if you had something that could aid you with this baby brain situation and help you be much more organized on the daily/weekly schedule and appointments? That would be pretty great right! Especially for first time mamas who might not be expecting the baby brain to kick in, this might make the perfect gift for them.

My friend and fellow designer, Victoria Senges of VSHOP, showed me a new product that she was launching and I just had to try it out and share it with all of you. This weekly “We Got This, Baby!” planner is customizable for every woman and their pregnancy with the ability to fill in the dates and tear off each page at the end of the week.

You can also keep the pages as a memento for after baby arrives as it allows you to record your mood, current cravings and other fun facts about how momma is feeling each week. On the right hand side you can detach “Questions for the Doctor” and “Things to buy for Baby” for when you head out of the house for your appointment or shopping date.

Since this product is new to the VSHOP and I am nearing the end of my pregnancy I have only been able to use it for a short while, but I knew right when seeing it that it would be something that I would want my hands on from the start of pregnancy. I think it could be the perfect little gift to yourself when finding out your are pregnant or something that would make an amazing gift for a bestie after they share their exciting news with you.

  • "Big Grandpa died Mom and we need to go get him back." Sophie said as she pulled at my arm from my bed. I lay down not feeling well trying to explain to Sophie about heaven and she said, "Mom, I don't want my parents to die, get better mommy." Oh my heart.

This weekend, we lost my grandfather. He had been sick for a little while, though I really did think his stubborn character would pull him through for more days here on earth. He's resting now, in heaven with our Heavenly Father. There is so much peace in that, though it is never easy to say goodbye, I am especially thankful for God's love and his sacrifice.

For anyone else mourning a loss right now I'm praying and sending love to you tonight. Especially those with little ones who we want to be honest with, that we have the words to let them understand in the most suitable way.

  • For a minute I thought Ezra was only a head shorter then me. We still have time people, notice the feet on tip toes in his shoes... not quite there yet. (Soooo... it's been noted that I'm wearing heels and he really IS THAT TALL NEXT TO ME!)
  • Weekend started early with a little trip to the island with my sister @roxannredekop. The weirdest part about being away from the kids is always bedtime. We are tucking into bed early tonight and I can't help but feel weird knowing that the wee ones won't be around in the morning.
  • The whole family gathered for a taste around my latest @DQcanada creation. Sophie kept asking if it was for Evelyn's birthday, which I think it would have been perfect for since I custom designed the top border with florals.⠀
•⠀
So here's how I made it. I went into dqcakes.com and found this heart shaped cake. It originally had balloons and "Happy Birthday" on the top with a plain white border around the edge. In the personalization option I simply asked for no words or decor on the top and a floral border in purple around the outside top border. Voila! You can do it to! Head to the link in my profile and play around with the different styles and options available on DQcakes.com⠀
