I recently became a mom again for the third time. Our newest addition to the family is Isabel Vienna Zalk—we call her Ivie. She has bright blue eyes and came out of her newborn slumber at about 8 weeks old. She is smiling and making the sweetest sounds, and we couldn’t be more grateful to have her on this journey called life. This time around was a completely different experience than before. Being a first time mama to my twins was all about survival. With Ivie, we’ve been able to have a lot more one-on-one time and I’ve been able to focus on her in ways I wasn't able to with Simone and Ariana. The biggest challenge is managing three little girls under two while keeping everyone well and thriving. They say it takes a village and for me, it's been all about my network and the community of women (physically and virtually) that have shared their cures for battling chaos, staying positive, maintaining a fresh face, and keeping things comfortable. I’ve found the real secret to supporting other parents is to keep passing along tips and tricks as well as sharing my wins and losses. Here are some of my motherhood must-haves that I’ve extracted along the way. Enjoy!
