Easter is such a fun holiday, especially with kids! Cam was super young last year, so he liked to pick up the eggs, but we basically had to hand them to him. This year Nora will be too young to participate in egg hunts, but Cam is the perfect age, so it will be fun to watch. Regardless, I am still that crazy mom/ Easter Bunny that makes them baskets full of goodies. This time was definitely more challenging with two kids of opposite genders, and different ages, but I love a challenge. Read More
Mealtime with a toddler is always a challenge. Always. Whether they’re refusing to eat, or throwing their plates/food/etc, you always feel like you need to be watching them. Avanchy has helped give me a little bit of my freedom back during Cam’s mealtime (s). Read More
I have been getting a lot of questions about Nora’s birth story since my first delivery with Cam was a c-section. I will start out by saying that Nora’s birth was COMPLETELY different, and I am so glad I have been blessed with 2 very different birth experiences. Read More
Since having Nora, I have been utilizing my baby wraps & carriers MUCH more than I did with Cam. Likely because I am having to chase around a toddler, keep the house clean and laundry (semi) caught up- so I need free hands as much as possible. In documenting all my time spent in baby wraps, I have received so many questions about which ones are my favorite, where to get them, etc so I decided to do a post for you all! Read More
I told myself that one of the biggest things I wanted to do after Christmas was tear down all of the holiday decor (SO unlike me) and start off the new year refreshed. I love it when my house is clean and bright, but still cozy and calm. Anderson Lilley reached out to see if they could help with this new year’s resolution, and boy did they! Read More
First of all, I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! We all had a GI bug, so not living our best life for Christmas weekend. Not too much has changed since my last bumpdate, honestly! Well, besides the fact that I’m scrambling last minute to do EVERYTHING. Typical me, I guess. We don’t have her room totally ready, we don’t have Cam in his new room, we don’t have a name totally decided on, neither of our bags are packed, the base isn’t in the car, etc. we are really a spectical over here.
This is the perfect gift guide for all the ladies in your life. Who doesn’t like to curl up with a glass/bottle of wine and watch christmas movies in front of the fire? As you all know, I am the epitome of a homebody- I have a lot of these items on my Christmas list this year, especially since I will be cozied up on maternity leave for the next couple of cold winter months!
