Maxwell is well into his seventh month of loving life, and it’s amazing. Sometimes I miss the newborn stage and how sleepy and extra cuddly he was, but when I think about what life is like now I don’t miss anything about the past :) At least not for too long! He’s still sleepy and cuddly, but he’s so much more now — he’s playful!
Now that he’s sitting and “rocking” and rolling from left to right, right to left, he’s so much more fun. And if you haven’t noticed, he’s so much more expressive! (Oh, the eyebrows.) I love every bit of personality Maxwell is showing us. Seeing him smile makes me smile, from deep inside my soul.
When I became a mama on March 12th, God gifted me with something indescribable. It’s a feeling, a knowing, a heart stirring. It’s blissful.
Throughout the day, Maxwell and I play together. We now have luxe carpet in our bedroom — which is so nice since half of it is Max’s nursery. We put a small white cabinet in there, which is perfect for blankets, pacifiers and burp cloths, as well as small books and wooden toys for playing.
We play peek-a-boo, “mommy loves you”, we read stories, we sing songs. All day long we are playing — whether on the floor, on the couch or in my favorite mustard chair :) Sometimes I just stare at him and suddenly my eyes are brimming with tears. I’m so grateful to be his mama.
Playing with our infant son requires me to be flexible, so wearing comfortable clothes helps mucho much. We’re on the second floor in our new apartment so I’m also carrying a baby stroller up and down the steps, as well as chasing a pup around. It’s fun ;)
Albian Fit is a clothing line that features comfortable day and athletic wear. A couple months ago they sent me these charcoal leggings, this coral zip with ruffle accent trim, this flowy tank in lavender, and this long sleeve crew shirt in pool. I’ve been wearing their items since, and they get two thumbs up from Gussy.

One of the beautiful things about our brand is that there truly isn’t an “ideal” customer- our swimsuits and workout wear outfits high school girls, 20-something students and professionals, young mothers, middle-aged women, and women in their 60’s and beyond! With classic styles, flattering shapes, and the right trending touches, our items really suit every age, —Kate from Albion Fit
Albion Fit has a really fun selection of women’s fitness and swimwear items, along with workout clothing. All of their clothing colors are in such relaxing hues, so even when you’re at home you can still feel good about what you have on. My thoughts: carrying a baby stroller up a flight of stairs (twice a day, ahem) and dancing in the living room with our baby boy (who has the cutest, chubbiest of legs) is way better than an “official” workout class on my calendar ;)
