Being mom is the most important thing I have ever and will ever do. Every time I am with my boys I am in awe of the tiny blessings that God has giving me. I am in awe that I have been blessed with 2 little boys that are so sweet there is nothing I could have possible done to deserve them. So I make sure to treat each day that way, to treasure them and to let them know just how loved they are.
I remember the first word each of them spoke, the first time the crawled, the first time they smiled. I remember the first boo boo and the first hit the got at a baseball game! I remember the first "But Why" question I was asked and I remember the first time I looked into their tiny little faces and realized just what unconditional love really was.
I am mom.
Like many moms those first few months being home were tough though. I was lacking sleep, I didn't take a decent shower in a while and don't get me started on the kind of diet I was following. If it was edible and didn't require a lot of work I ate it. I remember the first time my friend asked me to come out I looked at my phone as if she just sprouted two head! Come out? In my current condition? She had to have temperately insane.
She coaxed me out and I threw on an outfit and out I went with my little baby in tow. And it was horrible! I felt uncomfortable in my clothing and I knew I looked bad. I was just not having any fun at all.
When Quinn was born (My 2nd little boy) I learned my lesson and during my 9 months of pregnancy I stocked up on new mommy clothing! Stuff I could wear that was comfy and looked good. Plus it had to be baby accessible. These outfits were life saviors and instead of hiding in my home I was out and about with my baby having a great time.
This is why I adore shops like Bun Maternity! They get what us mamas need. They understand we want to look and feel good. And most of all the understand that yes sometimes we need to be accessible and for anyone that is being thrown by this word I mean breastfeeding. And you can wear the clothing during, after and even years later!! It looks good no matter what stage you are in
I didn't get to do it with Brandon Jr :( Early in my pregnancy we discovered some lumps, so I wasn't able to bond with him in that way. I was with Quinn though, the lumps went away and have not been back since (Thank you God) now that my hubby and I are talking about baby number 3 I am so stalking Bun Maternity's page.
Their clothing soft, SUPER soft! I like that it doesn't rub my skin, not only is this great for mom, but also for little one. You don't want their skin against rough material.
The clothing flows! It doesn't squeeze my skin and make my post baby body stick up like a sore thumb. I like that Bun Maternity understand that my body is different and they make their clothing accordingly.
And finally I just love the style. Everything is made in the USA and it is chic/classy. The know being a mama doesn't mean we lost our style! We still want to look good :)
They offer tank tops, T-Shirts, Dresses, Ponchos and Hoodies.
I can't say enough great things about this shop.
