Amanda Spencer Beauty is now Simply Amanda. I have evolved over the past year and I feel that my blog needs to evolve also.
You will still find the same fun beauty post but I will also be writing about family, life, crafts, food and maybe even style if I ever get out of my yoga pants..lol
So, I can’t wait to start writing about stuff that I really care about and I hope you all stick around to read it.
Wow!!! I haven’t made a post since April. Crazy!!!
Where have I been?
Mostly at home being a wife and mother. My daughter is 2 1/2 now and is getting so big and sassy..lol
I also have been doing crafts and selling stuff in my Etsy shop. I love creating new things.
I can’t wait to jump in and start blogging about makeup and skincare. I might also throw do crafts and mommy stuff in there too. I might even change the name of my blog. You never know.. lol
Today is my baby girls first birthday. Mattie was born two months premature due to me having preeclampsia. I was in the hospital forever not knowing when I would deliver. But on March 31st my blood pressure got so high that we had to have an emergency c-section. At 11:56am Mattie Elizabeth came into this world at 3 pounds screaming so loud, I couldn’t believe that was my little preemie.
Because I was so sick I had to be put back on magnesium, which is horrible. When on magnesium you can’t get out of bed, which meant I couldn’t see my daughter because she was in the NICU. My husband was so sweet and sent me pictures and FaceTime with me.
Here is the first picture of my little Mattie.
Mattie ended up staying in the hospital for 60 days, it was so hard to be away from her but the Doctors and nurses took wonderful care of Mattie.
On Mother’s Day 2015 we were finally able to take her home. It’s been so amazing to see this little girl grow and learn.
Mattie is our little fighter. She’s so smart that sometimes I forget that she’s two months behind.
We know in our hearts that Mattie wouldn’t be here without her guardian angel Riley.
Happy birthday to the sweetest, kindest, strongest and smartest little girl I have ever met.
