    DockATot

    Thank you so much to DockATot for sending me the lovely Carrera Marble lounger! We are forever grateful! Being a full time nursing student with two little ones under two, I needed a way to study while entertaining my little ones. Studying usually occurs when Harley goes down for a nap, but as most moms know, trying to get two to sleep at the same time is near impossible. In the beginning of Atlas’ life, I would allow her to fall asleep on my chest but I soon found that that was too difficult to type or turn pages while having a sleeping baby. I needed something that allowed me…

    Our Toddler and Our Life

    When Brian and I found out Harley was on her way, we decided that a baby would fit into the lifestyle that we had. Most of the time, we are homebodies but occasionally we like to go out to breweries, hang with friends at a later dinner or brunch. From the newborn stage, we decided to continue on with what we were doing and just bring Harley along. As a newborn with colic that was tough. But we survived. She went with us wine tasting, beer tasting and sat with us through fancy dinners that went well past 7 pm. Now as a toddler I have definitely learned some tips…

    Saving Money with Kids

    I have always been a big saver. I hate paying full price for anything if I truly don’t have to. One kid has always been expensive but with 2 under 2, I have definitely decided to coupon more and be smarter with my choices. I mean who wants to pay full price on diapers when we don’t half too! The first app I use is Ibotta. Ibotta is so simple, you scroll through the items on the app and click add which then gives you cash back when you buy! A lot of times I use it for drugstore makeup that I want to try but can never bring myself…

    A Month With Two Kids

    As of tomorrow, Atlas will be a month old. Time has flown so much! And as I look back on the past month, I am so proud of how I’ve adapted to being a mom of 2 under 2. It’s definitely not the easiest at times but I’ve started seeing some tricks that has made it a little bit easier of a transition. 1. Involve your oldest in all things baby. Harley hasn’t shown us the jealousy of the baby yet because we ask her to help. When I change the baby, she runs over and usually grabs me the diaper and wipes. Her absolute favorite thing is to throw…

    Kimi and Kai Maternity/Post Partum Clothing

    Thanks to Kimi and Kai for sending me these amazing shirts to review! Looking back at photos of me with my first born, I realized I looked disheveled. I chose to wear just standard v neck tops for breast feeding that often got stretched out and exposed me to the world. When I learned I was pregnant with my second, I knew my postpartum lifestyle had to change. When I was searching for a maternity photo shoot dress, I fell in love with the ombre maxi dress from Kimi and Kai. When I put it on, it fit like a glove, made me feel beautiful and I knew I needed…

    Hospital Bag

    Because I was asked to spend the night in labor and delivery at 31 weeks to have my heart monitored, I had a bag packed the minute I got home. I still remember getting a call saying I needed to go in, I remember picking up some diapers for my oldest and throwing them into the stroller and off we went. When we got there my phone was almost dead and I had nothing to entertain my 21 month old, thank goodness the medicine balls are in the room and daddy came quick! My hospital bag mainly had items for my toddler but I also managed to pack stuff for…

    The Last Moments Before Birth

    Life got quite hectic the past few weeks. With Harley arriving 8 days early, I went into early preparation mode. I wanted to ensure I had everything packed in case I needed to make a mad rush to the hospital. As 8 days came and went, I questioned why I was still pregnant. Each day that passed was a confusion but I knew it meant the baby was growing still. I cherished each moment I could cuddle with my toddler and I enjoyed the 12 hour night sleeps. I enjoyed the time with my husband where we watched our daughter in awe. And I enjoyed the little kicks and movements…

    Wet It

    Having a toddler, spills are just an every day, every moment part of life. Especially with our daughter. She will constantly throw her sippy cup on the floor just so she can use our glass. But the minute she brings our glass up to her lips, water spills to the floor. The Wet It is our perfect solution. Not only is it absolutely adorable, I love that they are more eco-friendly than paper towels. One Wet It towel is super absorbent and I love that I can mop up any liquids that our toddler may drop. And on top of a messy toddler, our dog loves to contribute to the…

    To My Unborn Child

    To my unborn baby, We are getting close to the finish line. As my belly grows, and I get more uncomfortable, I know that in a few short weeks, we will finally be able to hold you. You are already so loved. Your sister finally has been showing an interest in my ever growing belly. She loves to rub lotion on the belly while saying di-do which in her language is baby. You were conceived because of the infinite love between your daddy and I. I promise to be the best mom that I can to you. I promise to be your biggest cheerleader. I promise to show you right…

    The Best Bottle For Us

    Thank you to ihelpmoms and Nanobebe for sponsoring this post! With only a month and a half to go before finishing nursing school, and our newest addition being born within a couple of weeks, finding a bottle was highly important to me. With Harley, she was exclusively breast fed and I was lucky to be able to pump to satisfy her needs when I was away at school. But with Harley I didn’t start a bottle until 7 weeks of age, and so I never faced nipple confusion. This baby will be started on the bottle right away. I also want to keep the nursing bond as well. As I…
