happy baby = happy momma

I guess I should start this out saying "knock on wood".. Kate has seriously turned a corner this week and has been dream baby. We are in Heaven! We started doing an earlier bedtime routine and it seems to be working well! She is sleeping 9+ hours a night and has been doing this for 4 weeks now. I don't know what to do with myself! Sleep is amazing and I am so happy to have it back! She is great throughout the day and smiles and coos. Today I braved Brea mall with her, our first solo mall experience and she was perfect! 2 hours in Nordstrom and not a peep. She's a mini Nordstrom shopper in training. We are enjoying each day with our precious Kate and thank Jesus all day long for this sweet blessing. I'm taking her in to see the doctor on Thursday to get her wound checked. It's still infected and is breaking our hearts. I am learning patience through this and trusting in the Lord with all of my heart. We know that He is going to heal her completely in His timing. We're thankful that she has a good attitude through all of this. She is quite hilarious actually. A true drama queen already doing fake sneezes and coughs. Hard not to laugh. Love love love her!

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

TwistShake Baby

Our sweet Sophie Mae is just starting to take a bottle like a pro. You know where I can finally run some errands kid free and not stress about her starving because she only likes the boob.  I've been giving her a bottle 3x a day, the main one being at bedtime to ensure she gets a belly full because sleep is a good thing!  We are in a good transition and I plan to stop nursing when she's around 9 months old.  I've collaborated with TwistShake Baby!

10 years..

Friends. 
It's been 10 years since I created southernatheart. 
10 whole years. 
I remember sitting in our little cottage in Southern California logging in and creating this blog like it was yesterday. 
I've always had a passion to write.  I have piles of journals from my teen years and early 20s.  Writing has been and still is therapeutic for my soul.  Whether it's pen to paper in a journal, a blog post or like the most recent years a post on Instagram.  It's how I express myself and my thoughts best.  Documenting life through the good times and hard. 

These past three years I've simply ignored my blog because I lost the desire and all the extra time to sit and write. 
Something stirred inside me recently and that was to log back in and get this thing going again. 
I don't know what it's going to look like, nor can I tell you what to expect here but we'll figure that out as we go. 
Exciting things are happening I expect this blog along with Instagram to be part of t…
