Truett’s CHD Story (Part 1)

In Uncategorized by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

First, I want to say that I’m writing this mainly for myself. As I’ve navigated the last two months post heart surgery and all that transpired with Truett, I’ve been blessed (or sometimes I think cursed) with a crystal clear memory of all that transpired. And before those memories fade, I want to make sure I have documented this tender, terrifying and miraculous time in our lives and in Truett’s life. Some may find this helpful, others may find it … Read More

Truett Joseph: A Birth Story

In Family, Pregnancy by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Hello, friends! It’s been a WHILE hasn’t it? I don’t think I’ve ever gone this long without posting to the blog since the very beginning of blogging, but then again I’ve never had a month like the month of August. From the beginning, I’ve always had a goal in this space of sharing transparently, but also not blogging before I’ve had time to process what I’m blogging about. So in that spirit, I’ve had to take some time away before … Read More

Chunky Peanut Butter Granola

In Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Over the last year I learned that one of Joe’s favorite breakfasts is yogurt with granola and fresh berries. I don’t know when I came to this realization – I believe it was on vacation when he mentioned one time while eating yogurt, berries and granola – that he could eat that breakfast every day. And suddenly I realized that I hardly ever had that very combination on hand at our house. Since then, I’ve been working on sampling and … Read More

My Maternity Favorite Favorites

Now that I’m nearing the end of this pregnancy, I thought it was time to do a recap of the items of clothing that I’ve worn and truly loved throughout the entire pregnancy.

So, with that said, here are the favorite favorites that have stood the test of the last 36 weeks! 1. Kindred … Read More

Emotionally Challenging Pregnancies

In Family, Pregnancy by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

I’ve had this post brewing in my head for quite some time, but finding the words to write about something so joyful yet so challenging has felt nearly impossible. How do you find the words to write about something that feels so real, yet so self-indulgent at the same time? As a momma who has walked through miscarriage three times, I know as well as most what it means to long for a big, round belly. Each time I’ve been … Read More

New Baby Items

Snuggle Me Organic Newborn LoungerFull disclaimer: This product isn’t designed for evening sleep, but I found having a newborn lounger of some type was great for daytime napping around the house. We used a different newborn lounger last time, but it was pink and covered in hearts so we upgraded this time around to something more appropriate for baby boy. Owlet Smart Baby Sock I thought about buying this smart sock monitor for Collins last time around, but at the … Read More

My Thoughts On: Not Taking Maternity Leave

In Family, Pregnancy by Madison Mayberry1 Comment

I’ve listened recently to a few podcasts from fellow mommas who work for themselves talking about maternity leave and setting yourself up to check out when a new baby enters your family. When I worked a traditional 40 hour/week job before Ainsley was born, I took a traditional maternity leave that entailed checking out completely from all work responsibilities for 12 weeks. It was lovely, and going back to work full-time after Ainsley was born was soul-crushing for me at … Read More
