Most essential items as FTP’s!!! 

Hey everyone!!!! If you’ve been keeping up, then you know that my boyfriend and I are FTP’s (First Time Parents) and as you know the struggle has gotten real when it comes to parenting. At first, our baby was so quiet and barely moved now we have to make her take a nap because she’s so on the GO!!! Mind you, she’s only a few days shy of being 7 months old! I can’t believe it, but I digress. 

I’m bringing you our perspectives as first timers what our most essential items are for our baby girl. Of course my boyfriend’s answer was short and to the point saying for him the most essential thing to him is having her pacifier. Wait, what?! That’s it?! A pacifier. Yeah, okay gotcha buddy. 

Me, on the other hand, I have about three essential items and they include:

  • Diaper bag (which consists of basically everything)
  • Easy feed on-the-go spoon
  • Vaseline 

Since having her and becoming used to being a mom I have downgraded our diaper bag to a very inexpensive $4 (caught on sale) bag that fits everything we need without us being weighed down. Now on to my favorite item… 

This thing right here…..I’m so glad Munchkin invented this! It’s heaven sent seriously! 

She loves it! I love it! We all love it! It’s no mess and it’s especially great when your baby doesn’t like to wait for you to dip the spoon in the bowl and bring it to their mouth. Only  $6 at Walmart, go get it now! 
The last thing that I’ve been carrying around since before she was born is Vaseline. I use it for EVERYTHING. It’s my go to for everything, and I use organic coconut oil  but mainly on her hair, but this does great for our baby’s eczema prone skin. Especially during the winter time. It’s hypoallergenic and has a very light baby scent so baby can still have that baby fresh smell without all of the parabens, etc. that are used in other brands. $5-$6 at any drugstore, Walmart, and Target. It’s old school and always does the trick.  


Building myself up in the wonderful world of Blogging. 


For the past couple of days I’ve been using Word Press to connect and follow new bloggers and bloggers who blog about things that pique my interest. I’ve found some great blogs dealing with everything from parenting and lifestyle to branding. I can’t wait to go through and read & gain more insight & knowlege on how different people blog. I haven’t quite gone all the way public yet when it comes to my writing. I’m comfortable with sharing my work within the blogging community, with people who understand that writing is an actual hobby and can almost be made a career if you choose to do so. As far as sharing posts to my Facebook andTwitter, I’ve done so before but I’m not 100% comfortable yet and I want to spruce my site up a bit before officially letting people go in and read. After all, this is my new baby.  

I recently joined a blogging group here on Word Press to help along the way with my journey to consistently blogging/writing and branding my writing. In day four of our group we were asked to target an audience, basically what kind of readers you want for your blog.

What kind of readers or audience am I gearing towards in my writing? 

 Honestly, I want all different types of people to read my blog. I plan to write about being a mom, the highs and some lows of it, grad school, life situations, fashion, my cooking journey, any and everything that pretty much comes to mind when I choose to blog. 

Get ready for my post on my e-vision board for this year! I’m excited to explain the things on it. Later!
