Freckles in April: Almost There (Plus a Giveaway!)

Almost There (Plus a Giveaway!)

The Caboose was my easiest c-section recovery but I think she's also given me my hardest post-partum experience, if that makes any sense. I look in the mirror and feel like I'm still not "back to myself" yet. It's coming! Just...slowly.

ON ME: Dress from TJMaxx (similar can be found here, here or here) | Necklace | Shoes from Payless (they come around every fall but you can find similar here) | Watch (c/o)

ON HER: Dress from TJMAXX (similar) | Headband from my baby shower (similar) | Jellies (THEY'RE GLITTERY AND SCENTED) from Old Navy (similar)

I'm still pretty mushy but regular workouts are starting to help with that. My hair is still falling out but I feel like it's less and less at each shower. I have crazy under-eye bags but Aaron started taking the 2am feeding (I handle 11 and 4. Yes my baby still eats EVERY THREE HOURS) so I'm actually getting some sleep these days.

There's a light at the end of this post-partum tunnel, you know?

She was super nervous about all the cars.

In the meantime, a little bit of pretty goes a long way. A lightweight nursing-friendly dress. This gorgeous necklace I picked up at Phoenix Flea a few weeks ago. This awesome wood watch that Jord sent me. 

Thanks to Camille for acting as photographer!

Want a pretty box like this to show on your doorstep?

Jord has generously offered a $120 gift certificate to one lucky Freckles in April reader so she (or he!) can pick out whichever wood watch makes her (or his!) heart happy. To enter just go fill out this form and we will pick a winner on April 17!
