About thealanna

I'm a breatfeeding, babywearing, cosleeping, stay at home mom. I recently moved from working full time stay at home. This blog will mostly be random posts about my big changes- the baby, my new experiences at home; and my baby steps to remain who I am while I also learn and grow into a new person, mother, wife.

I have a confession

Come here.  Closer.  Closer. I’m not crafty. Shhhhh, don’t tell anyone.  That’s right.  I’m not crafty, but I wish I was.  I’ve always wanted to be crafty.  I think in the next few months to a year I should work … Continue reading
