Amaya is now three months old and I finally caved and got a true diaper bag. After months of using my trusty MZ Wallace or LV totes, I was craving compartments. After getting a ton of recommendations for diaper bags that don’t scream diaper bag on Instagram, I narrowed my search down to three backpacks and finally found the one. A backpack was the way to go for me, since it gives me free hands when I’m carrying her. Plus, I already had totes I like that I bought an organizer for. Here are the finalists.
If you follow me on Instagram, then you saw the announcement that Joe and I recently welcomed home our newly adopted baby girl, Amaya Jo (more in the Insta post)! We are over the moon, full of love and joy and I couldn’t be more excited to share the news with you! As I sit here to write this, I realize I have so much to share, but am going to do so over a series of several posts on the adoption process. This one is from the heart on my journey to motherhood and what it truly means to me now.
Earlier this year, I wrote a post called “5 Things Never to Say (or Do) to A Pregnant Woman,” which was shared over and over for obvious reasons. When it comes to family planning, setting boundaries with others has been very important to me and I know from the feedback I got on that post, I’m not alone. That being said, since I’m fortunate enough to have a platform to speak on, and feel it’s important to write this as well in hopes to educate people who read it and don’t already know.
