Why I Made Hazel an Instagram Account
Okay, so first things first, if you follow my social you already know that I just made Hazel an Instagram account. For some of you, this might seem totally normal, but for me it’s a big deal! I never in a million years thought I would build an account for Hazel, but let me tell you why…
So, as you know, Hazel is a “quarantine baby,” meaning she was born and has since been in this crazy world that we call 2020. Her own grandparents weren’t even able to hold her for the first 4 weeks of her life. It was tough on our family and one way that we coped was to share photos, tidbits, and some of her “firsts” online. What started as posts for friends & family quickly caught the interest of other moms, dads, grandparents, and baby lovers. Hazel has been making people happy during a tough time and I think that’s the coolest thing.
Fast forward 7.5 months and WE JUST WENT INTO A NEW QUARANTINE here in California. It’s hard to believe, and if I think about it too long, I start to lose hope. So, I say let’s crank up the distractions! If Hazel can bring a little happy, a little cute (Okay, okay, a LOT of cute!), and maybe a smile to even one face a day… it’s worth it!
Mothering, parenting, quarantining – whatever it might be that you’re going through right now, there might be a little bit of something for you on Hazel’s new account. I love sharing all the things that Hazel loves – from the newborn products, to the cutest clothes, to the things we bought at 6 months, and even what helped her sleep. There are parenting tips and tricks (like how she started eating solid food) and lots more that I’ll continue linking to. We’re all in this together, and I hope that sharing what I’ve learned makes it easier for others.
And as always, your support of our little family means to the world to us. Seriously – THANK YOU! Okay, have to go change a diaper… thanks for reading and following. ?
