During the "fourth trimester," you and your newborn are still critically connected as you grow and change together. Your baby is learning to live outside the womb and you are learning how to care for a totally dependent little human. Fatigue, physically healing from childbirth, learning to breastfeed - these are some of the challenges you may experience as a new mom. Nearly 25% of new mothers experience postpartum depression or anxiety as well. Remember these struggles are common and expected, and it's OK to ask for support during those first sleep-deprived months. 💚 #azftf#firstthingsfirst ...
What an awesome time we had with our new friends Heather and her mom, Joy! We spent the entire day with them petroglyph hunting and then they invited us to come to dinner with them in Holbrook which was so much fun!! Amazing to meet such wonderful women just out of the blue, literally in the middle of nowhere. It was meant to be. We felt like we had known them forever and that we came together, but we just met them this morning. So neat! ❤️😘
West of Holbrook, Arizona found a great example of (Pediocactus peeblesianus) a bit sunk into to soil due to minimal rainfall this year. This is a federally protected species and very sought after by Cacti enthusiasts. It was truly amazing to have seen this species in habitat let alone how difficult it was to locate. Spent many hours trying to find this specific locality. I’ll have to say this population is stable and thriving. Another great plant of the Colorado Plateau. . . . . #pediocactuspeeblesianus#pediocactus
What the most unique place that you’ve stayed in on your travels? For me it’s a concrete wigwam! This is the Wigwam Motel in Holbrook, Arizona along Route 66! There are only a few of these motels left in the USA and 2 are on Route 66 (the 2nd is in San Bernardino CA). They were actually the inspiration for the Cozy Cone Motel in the Disney Pixar movie ‘Cars’! Believe it or not, inside are 2 double beds and a small bathroom...I’m 5”4 and could only just fit in the shower though as it’s attached to the sloping wall! ...
The hardest part about this particular Monday is it’s the first day it’s not Fair Week. We’re missing the Navajo County Fair and Rodeo already and can’t wait for next year! #visitholbrook#countyfair . . . 📸 by: Cyndi Curtis
Had a great start to my weekend. Ended up 9th in the open barrels at the Holbrook GCPRA. So blessed to have fame. 🥰 @profchoice @usherbrandsilversaddlery @baleshay @americanfamilyfeedco @rockandrolldenim @panhandleww @mavericksaddleco @shallow_creek_bits #usherbrandsilverandsaddlery#professionalschoice
Nugget did absolutely amazing for me this weekend at NCFR. I could not have asked for a better first rodeo. She was responsive the entire time and she stood quietly through fireworks, ignored an ambulance and fire truck driving with lights on right behind her, she was calm behind the chutes and jumped on it when I asked her to enter the arena quickly. We had the opportunity to run flags 6 times. I am beyond proud and so excited for the future. I’m so blessed to call this little horse mine💗
