Family 8 months ago Your Family Questions, Answered
Picking back up on a popular series that we started on Instagram.
We’ve divided up your frequently asked questions in to sections. I started with Fashion questions and I’m now moving on to Family! Please feel free to ask more in the comments!
Do you think you and Grant will have another child? – Caryle
You know, I’m not really sure at this point. There are days where I cannot imagine a life without more baby June’s running around the yard and then there are days where we are very thankful and happy for our family of three. I really can’t answer that at the moment.
Did vital proteins work for post-partum hair loss? – Samantha M
These He Shou Wu vitamins worked for me but be sure to talk to your doctor before starting anything new.
Favorite toys? – Molly P
June is growing so quickly that it truly varies and changes monthly. If you check this page you can find my updates on family life where I include things that June is liking. I also update my Baby Favorites list on Amazon in real time.
Where is Grant from? – Shannon P
He is from Los Angeles, CA.
How did you know you wanted to marry Grant? – Jasmine H
I knew that Grant was the best person for me to spend my life with because he helps me to become the best version of myself in any situation or scenario. I honestly feel that if I had to select someone in the world to talk for me or on my behalf that Grant would be the best possible person. He is also just a better person than I am overall. His incredible patience is really great for my fiery spirit. He also makes me laugh every single day.
Have you brought your nanny back since Covid hit? – Becki G
Yes! We absolutely love our nanny and didn’t have her for the first few month’s of Covid. Her daughter has an auto-immune disorder so she is extremely safe and so are we. She is now back full-time.
Is Grant an employee of your business? – Bronwyn K
Yes! He has a few other things that he works on, but he’s now full time at Damsel Inc.
How’s motherhood going? – Madeleine D
It’s better than anything I could have ever imagined. While it’s the biggest challenge of my life at times, it’s also the greatest reward.
How do you memory keep for June? Journal? Baby book? – Mariana L
I continue to print photo books every 6 months using Artifact Uprising. I’ve also been documenting my time on the blog.
What kind of car seat does June have and do you like it? – Kara
We have the Clek Foonf and I absolutely love it. It’s narrow enough to fit three in a row in the back seat and sits high so that June can see out the window. It’s also flame retardant free: tailored in 100% Merino wool to help naturally regulate the child’s body temperature keeping them cool in the hot summer. It allows rear facing for longer (up to 40 lbs).
What shoes does grant like? – Mackey V
He really loves his Golden Goose sneakers we got in Italy last year. He also loves Common Projects.
What is your favorite thing about June right now? – Delaney V
She is learning to talk so when you ask her things she can respond. Communicating with her is melting my heart.
Why do you play Mexican music to June? It’s hilarious – Angelica L
Ha! I play all sorts of music around the house. From classical, jazz, country and rap to world, opera and oldies. I’m a daughter to a music teacher and strongly believe that music can heal, teach and inspire us.
How did you know you were ready to have kids? – Sofia K
I didn’t. But here’s a blog post on “How We Knew It Was Time for Baby”
How would you have named June if she had been a boy? – Nina R
Saving those names just in case we have another baby 😉
Are your parents still married? Do they live in the same place? – Samantha K
I’ve been getting this question a lot and I think it’s because my mom moved to Los Angeles when we had June. My dad lives in Texas and my mom lives here so she can be close to the grandkids. It works for them.
Do you think you’ll get another bully? How are you doing? – Adrianna I
We aren’t going to be getting another dog for a while. It’s just so damn hard to say goodbye. We are also looking forward to traveling more (once Covid heals) and not having that type of responsibility. Maybe when June gets a bit older.
Best neighborhoods in LA for a family? – Becca M
I love Hancock Park, Larchmont, Brentwood, Manhattan Beach…
Will you get a Polly tattoo? -Lin D
What resources/advice do you think new/experienced moms need? – Dr. Elizabeth H
To practice self compassion. It’s the hardest thing you can do for yourself but it will help you become a better parent. I also would suggest investing in a self care regime that’s just for you to do. Whether it’s yoga, pilates, therapy, church or anything that you can do that is solely for yourself, just do something to take time for yourself.
Thoughts on the Snoo sleeper? – Sarah J
It wasn’t for me but I hear amazing things about it. I was too worried about it becoming a sleep “crutch.”
Do you have anyone in your family who is hard to deal with? – @lovelookswitheyes
Naw. My family is perfect 😉 All jokes aside, yes…. When I’m confronted by a person or situation that is hard to deal with, I imagine and bubble or shield around me and whatever it is that’s bothersome I picture it bouncing back off of me and on to them.
Where do you get June’s solid color ribbed outfits? – Sivan G
They are from Amazon, linking here.
What are your biggest stresses as a mom? – Sheena
Honestly? Just keeping my daughter healthy and safe.
What formula did you use? – Carrie G
