white_lightning as of yesterday we have a FOUR MONTH OLD ! he's 16lbs+ and at least 25" long. we are still trying to figure out how to get him back to his pre-regression sleep patterns but i feel like that's all I think/talk about so let's move on shall we? He is the SMILIEST baby around and is starting to eye his feet like wait a second what is happening down there i made him wear this vintage 70s jumpsuit for the photo, it says SPORTSKID on it. btw its insane how baby clothes from the 70s are equal parts uncomfy AND hard to put on/take off. he was a good sport for the sake of POSTERITY. officially 1/3 of the way thru his first year of life! 🏼 😎 #zephyrandbruce #4monthsold #zephyrjamesolson 2d

white_lightning first family photobooth 📸 ! i labeled the back with the date and place and Zephyr's age (four months today !!) because I like to think that one day he'll dig these out of somewhere and say wow mom and dad you weren't always old? how old was i? what was i like? and P and I will think wow we were so young and remember when we lived in San Francisco? and THAT WAS THE NIGHT YOU STARTED SLEEPING 10 HOURS A NIGHT! (ok that part is my wishful thinking 🏻️) 2d

  •   petpret I don't know you, but I became a mum in my 30's after a lifestyle of Art, music, festivals and independence. I ended up just handing myself over to it. I'm now a parent to a 3 and 6 year old and the last couple of years have really provided me with a time to find what's important to me. I've cut back hrs as a teacher. I'm painting again, making Art and writing. I am not a yummy mummy, and parenting does not define me, but boy has it given me an excuse to rediscover the things that really make me who I am. I also give less of a fuck. Every month you'll get back to feeling a bit more yourself, may be even better. Don't throw your clothes away - you'll regret it. 3d

white_lightning these overalls, all the time (different sweaters, different clogs) ps i think i'm going to get rid of like, 80% of my closet. its a nuisance, i don't / can't / won't wear a lot of it and i'm tired of the mess. is this postpartum hastiness that I will regret or an ease of lifestyle i will embrace, not sure 2w

  •   yikyak omg! I've tried that on before. ha! thanks!!! @jujuroo 1w

  •   anniegraves I need overalls! I'm on a quest for the perfect pair - where are these from? Also, I say box up pieces that are classics and maybe some of the things you loved before. I threw a lot out and regret it. At the same time, my style has evolved so much in the two years postpartum I don't think I'd even want to wear half of what I tossed. Love your style. 2d

white_lightning i like places where you share small plates cuz snacks for dinner is my favorite way to eat but it only works if you share with no more than 1 other person. also: fuzzy pink wine season is here thank goddess 2w

white_lightning thank you @alsplacesf for being kind enough to let us swap our later res for an early one (while Zephyr was asleep in his stroller). that coupled with an outdoor table meant we had an actual Grownup Dinner Out for the first time since becoming parents (not counting some bigger family times). It was delicious and a real good time 2w

white_lightning we got 2 hours + at the park with Zephyr on his back, just laughing and playing and staring at the trees and sky. At home we get about 20 mins tops before he's over it and wants to be picked up. A lover of the outdoors or an unpredictable BABY who can say. 😎🏻🏻 2w

white_lightning 3/4 of the way through my first mother's day and it has been mostly great (which is just about perfect where a 14 week old is concerned, ya know?) i got to sleep in, got a lot of flowers, so many texts, had a perfect picnic in Dolores and we are on our way to dinner at Al's Place. i like this mother's day thing!! 2w

white_lightning 14 WEEKS YOUNG ! not gonna lie, the past 8 or 9 days have been the hardest since the first few weeks. Zephyr is too big for his bassinette and rock n play but not into the crib yet, and on top of that he still wants to flip over so bad (and works on it in his sleep). so sleep is a lil rough, which makes for a cranky babe and cranky mom. but he is smiling and giggling and growing like crazy. He has more and more duckfluff hair coming in and i think I see some eyebrows happening?! I think the next few weeks will be a little topsy turvy. taking it day by day and remembering that it DOES get better all the time (he was back to a 5 hour sleep stretch last night, so that's a start) 🏼🏼🏻#zephyrjamesolson #zephyrandbruce 2w
  •   dames503 Omg I love him. Just want to squeeze him! 2w
  •   kammaclaire 2w
  •   erindavisjr My 17 week old just started doing this the squirming and trying to flip overnight. It's hard! Im hoping it passes once he learns how to roll on his own. Good luck w your little! X 2w
  •   diana27ma I have a 12 month old baby boy; so glad to see I am not alone. It will get better 2w
