It’s a tradition that every year Nana gets all the grandkids special Christmas jammies. COVID-19 may have halted seeing all their pretty faces, but we got a fun little Christmas in January with a special little (big) package in the mail. Clara was clearly excited. <3
Travis county is under a “Shelter in Place” Quarantine status, so we are temporarily closed. As we are a non-essential business, we are following the law to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
As we are doing our duty, we have both of our tiny humans home with us so communication is slowed down immensely to you and all of our clients. Please be patient during this world crisis, as they are not old enough to understand what is going on and that we need to work.
Since we can’t see anyone else, we were able to get in a little session with my own baby. The shirt JD is wearing belonged to his great grandpa John Daniel. It was made and embroidered by his mother our of a flour sack!
Meet Clara and Lee. (Part of my everything)
Lee was looking forward to bringing Clara to her first dance since she was born. Let’s just say he set a high bar for her first year at only 3- years-old. In our neck of the woods, in West Austin, daddy-daughter dances have become a huge hit with all the families. Are they a “thing” in your area?
If you have found this post you are probably SO close to the finish line of your pregnancy. Doesn’t the last month just seem like time drags!? Baby boy or baby girl will be here soon, so just take a deep breath, relax and hopefully this post will help you do just that… at least relax about what to bring in your hospital bag. 🙂
Seriously, St. David’s Hospital, Baylor Scott & White Labor & Delivery, & Seton Hospital will have everything you absolutely have to have for mom & baby. You may or may not use the following from your bag:
Basically, I have found it is nice to shower once you’re able to walk again after delivery (if you get an epidural) which is a good point to then change into your own clothes. The mesh undies they have are great as you don’t need to worry about staining them from blood overflow. (sorry if that is TMI)
Personal note: these suggestions are from my experience delivering at Baylor Scott & White Lakeway & at St. David’s North. Some suggestions also come from other moms around Austin, Texas.
