Some Bunny Is Two // Emsley’s 2nd Birthday Party

This year for Emsley’s 2nd birthday I decided to do a bunny theme. It seemed fitting as her favourite stuffy is a Jellycat bunny which she carries around with her everywhere she goes and is a MUST have item to cuddle when she falls sleep. I recently got her a smaller version of the same bunny so she now carries “big bunny” and “little bunny” around everywhere together. When I told her the theme for her birthday party was bunnies she immediately requested a change to a mermaid theme but I kindly explained to her that it was a little too late for that as mommy had already started to order the bunny decor. Gotta love the 2 year old personality that’s emerging! Here I thought birthday party requests wouldn’t start until next year… lol. Oh well, after a quick explanation and some convincing she was in agreement with a “bunny birthday”.

Nuby Bath Time Toss Octopus Review

If you pay attention to my Instagram account you might notice that this little guy has popped up in Miss Lace’s bath time pictures many times. And if you pay extra close attention, you might also notice that I like to switch up the toys I have in certain rooms for Miss Lace. For example, her pink play kitchen is no longer on the main floor and is now in her bedroom, and her table and chairs have now replaced the play kitchen on the main floor. I find that when I take a toy that we have had around for a while to a new location, it brings a whole new life to it! And taking our little octopus bath time friend outside to the kiddie pool and water table did just that! When Ems recognized her purple friend from her usual bath time routine she was super excited to show him the ropes outside!

Nuby Sure Grip Miracle Mat Section Bear Plate Review

img_4140I am always on the lookout for new and exciting products to try for Ems. (I think all moms probably are!) So whenever I am shopping and out and about I always wander down every baby/toddler aisle looking for new toys, accessories and feeding items. In this last month Ems has become very independent with her eating, choosing to self feed with a fork or spoon almost every meal. Anything that can make meals less messy and easier for her to self feed are great by me!

threadswinter001

Although this November weather has been absolutely amazing the reality is winter is just around the corner, whether we like it or not! So, even though the snow hasn’t hit the ground here quite yet, I figured it was time to start gathering my winter favourites for not only baby girl but also for toddler girl. Because the reality also is my little girl is no longer a baby! You might notice that the blush pinks, greys and whites have carried over from my fall picks and made there way into my winter ones. They are still my faves and aren’t colours that I plan on giving up on anytime soon! Today’s winter favourite picks post is from an adorable online boutique called Threads Boutique based out of Vancouver, Canada.

DONUT think you can’t make this on your own!

fullsizerender-28This Halloween I was really struggling with what I wanted Ems to be. I had a few ideas in mind but had expected her to be walking, so I didn’t feel the ones I had in mind were appropriate for where she was developmentally. I wanted to make sure that she was able to sit comfortably if that was how she chose to  spend the majority of her evening. It turns out that she started to walk confidently right before Halloween but I didnt know for sure at the time how well she would be able to walk, especially wearing a costume! Since we already owned the “little donut” shoes from Joe Fresh and had the donut rattle laying around from when she was a bit younger, a donut costume seemed like an easy costume to start to create.
