I love breastfeeding.nursing tops My favourite part of having a newborn is holding him and looking down at him as I nurse him. I love how his little body folds into mine. I love how he holds me close. I love how I am the only one who can give him that. It’s my time with baby and I love that bonding time.

5 Ways I Save Money on Baby Necessities

5 Ways I Save Money on Baby Necessities

Do you have kids?5 Ways I Save Money on Baby Necessities Have you ever sat down and figured out about how much money you spend on each kid every year? I never have. Maybe if I did I wouldn’t have 4! I am joking, they’re worth every penny. But seriously, they are expensive.

Some one has estimated that in Canada you could spend about $10,000 just in baby’s first year. My first reaction to that number is no way. There’s no way I have ever spent that much on one child in one year. However, I can see where some families could easily spend that much.

Is God Saying Stop?

Is God Saying Stop?

We woke upis god saying to bright and early Tuesday morning. I made the kids a sandwich and some snacks and put them in the bag. I made a few pieces of toast, spread Nutella on the them, fed and changed the baby, and we were out the door at 9:30. Right on schedule.

It was a little cloudy but still a great day for a little morning walk. Of course, mosquitoes love this weather so we were swatting them away from our faces as we walked. We enjoyed chasing butterflies (and maybe a few moths?) and picking flowers all along the way.

For months DIYand weeks and days leading up to Rock’s birth I spent so much time on Pinterest looking at all the newborn photo ideas. I read a lot of articles, too, trying to get as many tips as I could.

So I want to take a minute and share some tips that I found really helpful, some that I wish I would have listened to and some that I wish I would have known before I started my own photo shoot with Little Rock.

Make 2 Weeks of Freezer Meals in 2 Hours

Make 2 Weeks of Freezer Meals in 2 Hours

I mentioned last Make 2 Weeks of Freezer Meals in 2 Hoursweek that my sister came to visit me for a couple weeks last month. It had been nearly two years since I had seen her so as the days got closer all I could think was the things I wanted to do with her when she came.

My sister is skilled in many areas but the kitchen is one of her definite strong points. And not just cooking but cooking healthy meals- clean eating. I asked her to think ahead and help me prepare for a handful of freezer meals. That way, when she was gone and baby was here I would not have to be making supper every night.

My First Week as a Stay at Home Mom {Guest Post}

My First Week as a Stay at Home Mom {Guest Post}

First off, I just want tomy first week as a say how happy I am to have the opportunity to write on Creating Kilter. It is exciting to be able to reach a whole new world of readers and I was so honored to be asked to do this blog post.

So first, a little background about me:
I am a young wife and a mom to a sweet and stubborn (like his mother, I’ll admit) two-year-old boy named Oliver. Long before I married my husband Robert, I knew that all I wanted to do was to be a mom. When we first got married, me becoming a stay at home mom was a pipe dream. My income was double that of my husband’s and it just became a prayer of ours that would have to take a miracle to come true. But this month, that pipe dream has become a reality through the grace of God. I had my last day of work on April 20th and began my journey as a stay at home mom. Of course, if you want to know more details about how this happened, check out my blog at Making Mommy Money.

Free Spring Cleaning (Bullet Journal) Checklist

This morning whenspringcleaningblog I was making breakfast I looked out the window admiring the sunshine. We have had nothing but cloudy days for the past week so this is a welcome change. However, the sunshine revealed something. Something unpleasant.

Sun shining through my windows revealed streaks and smudges all over. Then I started noticing the little specks of dust floating across the room. The dried food was revealed on the table. I could see little splashes of spilled drinks on the legs of the kitchen table and chairs.

Sunshine is so nice but it reveals all the filth, too!
