When people see how close in age my boys are, I usually get looks and compliments about how I must be so brave – but the fact of the matter is that I absolutely loved having my boys so close together! Having two under two is hard, but just like any age gap, there are so many pros that I found to outweigh any of the hard times. For anyone else who may be expecting another babe with a baby already at home, I hope this can help ease your nerves. I know I was looking for opinions are experiences when I was in that same boat, so here are just some of the reasons why I loved having two under two.
If I could scream from the rooftops how much I love this dress – I would! I am a huge fan of dresses and heels, but I have generally always stuck to the traditional above the knee style or maxi dresses. For some reason, I was nervous about trying out a midi dress & I wasn’t sure how it would look and flatter my body. The second that I came across this one though, I was in love and I totally knew that it was something that I at least needed to try out! Now I am so thrilled that I did because it is just the all around perfect dress for the season.
If you came here thinking I was going to tell you a bunch of awesome recipes and great ideas for making your kid’s lunches, then you obviously haven’t been around here too often. 🙂 I am a self proclaimed bad cook, but you know what, it is okay & I own it. I am able to own it because I have found so many options that make this area SO. MUCH. EASIER. in my life and that is why I get so excited to share them with you. If you are a busy mama with no time (or will) to cook your kiddos meals, then I have exactly what you need! Coming at you is the revolutionary food subscription delivery service that is geared towards kids!
With how much time we spend in the car, I love knowing that we have incredibly made car seats to keep my most prized possessions as safe as possible. For any mama though, the search for a car seat that you can feel confident driving your baby in can be a tough search. How do you know what to choose? What are the most important features? There are so many questions & quite frankly so many options on the market. How did I find the ones we love? Simple. I went with the brand that has proven time and time again to me (and all mothers) to be reliable, safe, and high quality!
I have realized after being pregnant, having a baby, breastfeeding, being pregnant again, breastfeeding again… that people are curious. Other moms and soon-to-be moms have a lot of questions & although it has become sort of taboo to talk about how we are choosing to feed our kids, I think it’s so important to keep an open conversation! There is so much shame in moms feeding their babies & I just cannot understand for the life of me why it is this way. Strangers have an opinion, other moms have an opinion, your own FAMILY has an opinion, when at the end of the day, it is YOUR baby and you should feel amazing about whatever choice – or life circumstance – has you feeding them the way you do.
I’m sure every mom can feel me on this one. Kids want JUICE & they usually want a lot of it. It’s important to me that throughout their super picky phases and their love of all things sugary that they still get the good stuff that they need. Sometimes that involves trickery, but sometimes a new product comes to the market that solves one of our problems perfectly. This past week we tried Welch’s 100% Juice with Coconut Water and I’m so happy about this discovery. Not only do I not feel the need to water the juice down, but it actually is made with coconut water (which is awesome itself) and has naturally 30% less sugar.
There is simply nothing better in the world to me than being cuddled up, cozy and warm, during the winter season. I am a total fan of the fall + winter times and overall the coziness that they bring. Every year, I pull out my same old sweatpants and jackets that I’ve been wearing year after year, because my excuse is, “I’m only wearing them at home, who cares?” But this year, I decided to update my winter warddrobe and bring in pieces that make me feel great about myself, that are amazing and lasting quality, and that I am not confimed to only wearing inside my home.
It’s officially autumn and I am so excited! I absolutely love this time of year, but one of my favorite parts about it is the fact that I feel like my wardrobe has the chance to expand and get a little more festive! Not only does the cool weather mean I can rock my skinny jeans a little more comfortably, but it also inspires me to wear the colors of the season. Reds, oranges, browns, and neutrals are some of my favorites to wear, but fall is when they shine! There is nothing like finding some pieces that you love & that’s what happened for me recently so I’m ready to share them with you!
