NUBY TEETHABLE ADULT JEWELRY

Jaxson is in a stage where he loves to touch any and everything. His little mind is so inquisitive and he is constantly exploring his surroundings. His new thing is also climbing all over me and I finally understand the saying, "I'm a human jungle gym". I take it all in stride and wouldn't change it for the world. Although some days are tough, I'm just grateful my son CAN do all of that which he's doing.

He's reaching milestones at a rapid pace and becoming more of a big boy everyday. He recently cut 4 teeth and the molars are on their way in. Remember when I said he touches everything? Well that includes my jewelry. I use discretion on what kind of jewelry I wear because he likes to put it in his mouth. He will do whatever it takes to soothe his gums. I often feel bad telling him NO or STOP when he is tugging at my necklace or earrings. Sometimes chewing his pacifier and fingers don't completely satisfy him. So when I got the opportunity to try out Nuby's Teethable Jewelry, I hopped at the chance! Not only is it appealing and easily matches my wardrobe, its safe and satisfying for Jaxson. Prior to trying it out, I had never really been a fan of some of the teething jewelry on the market. However, seeing the designs that Nuby offered truly sparked interest. I would recommend this jewelry to the mom who wants to keep it cute while out and about with their little one. You won't have to worry about them putting something in their mouth that's filled with germs and its nice silicone will be so soothing to your little one. I can truly say that I appreciate Nuby and all they offer both mom and baby!

YOU ARE NOT A FAILURE

YOU ARE NOT A FAILURE

Failure: lack of success

This is a word that should be obliterated from the vocabulary of women. People period. I remember after I gave birth to Jaxson I struggled with feelings of guilt and failure. I told myself and really believed that my body failed me and failed to keep my baby growing. Although I had done everything right I still in some ways felt it was my fault he was born prematurely. I fought with these feelings each and every day for MONTHS! Sometimes the thoughts were debilitating and brought tears to my eyes.

After sorting through my thoughts, I had to pray and ask God to forgive me for being ungrateful and I had to thank Him for the blessing and miracle of Jaxson's life. I stopped beating myself up and put my own selfish desires on the back burner. I decided to allow Jaxson to take the lead while also exposing him to new things. With this approach and a lot of guidance from the Holy Spirit I celebrated every little thing Jaxson did and cheered him on which reassured him and gave him confidence in his own abilities.
