Berkeley Elizabeth Low

Well folks I don't have some crazy dramatic birth story to share...sorry to disappoint.  I had both of my children by cesarean section (I won't bore you/gross you out with the details of why I have to have c sections) so Berkeley's arrival was very undramatic.  I walked myself right into the operating room and BOOM, 2 minutes after they started she was here!  She weighed 6 lbs 12 oz and was 17.5 inches long so she was pretty teeny.  She is seriously an angel and has been so much fun so far.

Berkeley is the sweetest baby ever.  I know I'm going to sound so sappy but this is definitely the best time of my life so far and I can't even imagine that it gets better then this.  It has been so amazing to watch my husband and daughter fall in love with this little baby.  I feel over whelmed with how much love I feel for my little family.  Life is loud and crazy and sweet and amazing!

This was the first time I held my little princess.  It was so fun to experience this part again.

This may have been the funnest part of having a second baby.  Joie was so excited to meet her baby sister which I'm sure you can tell from the pictures.

Happiest daddy ever.  People always ask me "does Andrew just want a little boy so badly now?"  and I'm sure he would love a little boy, but he tells me all the time how much he just loves having little girls.  He is the sweetest dad.

We were lucky to get visited by my sweet grandparents too.

I'm really not a fan at all of being photographed without my make up on but this moment of her snuggling me just needed to be captured because it was so sweet.  Goodness I love this little girl.

Ready to go home!

We are absolutely in love with her!!!

She's here!!!

 Berkeley Elizabeth Low 

She arrived on Sunday January 23rd at 8:00 AM on the dot.  She weighed 6 lbs. 12 oz. and was 17.5 inches long.  She is so sweet and darling and we are so excited to welcome her into our family.  More details to come later...right now I have a brand new baby to go snuggle

I know about a million people who have done a blog post about their favorite product which I think is a fun idea and I may just have to do...but that is not what this is.  I just want to share ONE product with everyone out there because I think it is the most innovative thing EVER INVENTED (ok maybe not but its amazing and I'm obsessed).  Now I know most of you are like me and either can't afford to hire a house cleaner at this point in life, or even if you could afford it you're pretty sure you would do a better job yourself.  I have spent years trying every product on the market to try and find a bathroom cleaner and that removes hard water streaks on the tile in the shower AND one that can fully remove rings and nasty dirt build up that stains the bottom of your tub.  I swear I have never even found ANYTHING that did more than scratch the surface...until maybe 9 months ago and I found this bad boy.

I have always been a big fan of the original Magic Eraser so I was so excited to try this.  The first time I used it I was in disbelief that anything worked that well and it was SOOOO easy.  I deep cleaned the bathroom today and the tub/shower was long overdue for a scrubbing and it took me maybe 15 minutes to clean all the shower walls and everything in the tub and now it basically looks brand new.  I think it only costs 4 dollars and it comes with two.  Go buy it!  I promise you won't regret it!  Feel free to let me in on any awesome products you use that you feel like you can't live without too!
