What Parents Really Need // Baby Registry List

I remember the instant we found out we were pregnant; I couldn’t wait to get going on shopping for all the wonderful items that I thought I needed before our daughter arrived. Nine months spent preparing for the little bundle of joy that would later join us; picking out items for her, which turned out to be even more fun than I had expected it to be! I was spending money on all the cute things that caught my eye for her and it didn’t take long to quickly fill up her closet and dresser with all the stuff that I thought she needed.

Our Baby Sleep Experience

I have consistently posted monthly updates for my kids on the blog and in every one of them I always speak about my children’s sleep habits. It seems that after each one I post, I always get someone asking a question about how my babes sleep so well, starting at such an early age. I’ve shared my experiences openly when people have inquired but I’ve never posted my thoughts, choices and behaviors publicly on the blog. The reason being, is because I know sleep, just like breastfeeding, has a lot of opinions associated with it. Continue reading

Safety and Comfort On The Go

Our little big guy (as his sister calls him) has been growing like a weed since he came out of me. He was bigger at birth than sissy was and hasn’t slowed down since; they are currently only four pounds apart! Since Ever was a bigger baby, we very quickly made the switch from our infant car seat into a “big boy” car seat. If we didn’t already own an infant bucket seat from our daughter, it probably wouldn’t have made any sense to get one for our son as we barely used it. When I first bought our bucket seat I didn’t even realize that you could get car seats which are made to grow with your babe, all the way from infancy to childhood. Theย Safety 1st Grow & Go Air 3-in-1 Car Seat is just that. Continue reading

Some Bunny Is Two

This year for my daughter’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!
