Another week of motherhood has gone by and it was a great one! Cooper and I had a play date just about every day and there is nothing like seeing your baby laugh and talk with his mini peers. Highlight of the week, Cooper’s first time on a swing! It was a bittersweet moment because I know I’ll blink and he’ll be going off to college. Maybe that’s a bit dramatic, but I am well aware that every day is precious because time does move fast. This week’s links that I have discovered for you mamas is all about functionality. When you have a new baby, the smallest tasks can be so hard to accomplish. That is why you need all of the help you can get. Hope these links help make your day-to-day life a little easier. Have a great weekend and don’t forget to find some mommy alone time!
