A, B to JAY-Z

ABCABC'sReading ToddlerReadingThe Little HomieToddler ReadingChildren's BooksJay z

Margot has been obsessed with the alphabet lately, so when The Little Homie reached out to us about two of their books we could not resist. One of their best sellers is a book called, “A, B to JAY-Z” and is a children’s book about the alphabet. Each page represents a rapper or singer that begins with that letter and shows a picture of them doing something, usually with the letter that correlates with them.

Another book The Little Homie sells is called, “1, 2, 3 with the Notorious B.I.G“, and counts up to twenty with different rappers as well. Each page shows a different rapper doing something with a different number starting from one to twenty and goes along with lyrics to one of their songs.

I love that these books are made for children, but definitely are a fun read for their millennial parents who grew up with a lot of these singers and rappers. It is also such a great way to spread some diversity and culture into a child’s home library, especially because every caricature in these books is a real person.

These books are the perfect thing for your child, but would also make a fabulous baby shower gift! You should definitely check out The Little Homie, and more of their amazing books on their site!

Mommy and Me Matching Cardigans with PinkBlush

Mommy and me matchingFall weather

Just when I thought I could not love PinkBlush more, I stumble upon their kid’s section. This could get dangerous.

Recently I received the softest, long light gray cardigan from PinkBlush that I am absolutely in love with. It is so comfortable and perfect for this fall weather we’re finally starting to get. It can easily be worn with a cute top and jeans or is perfect to throw on when you’re just going to wear a simple pair of leggings around the house.

The best part is that I found a long gray cardigan that my daughter can also wear during this autumn season from PinkBlush. It is so easy to just throw on her before we go somewhere, and she just looks too cute in it! Although she is still wearing 2T clothes, they are slowly phasing out, so although this 3T is a little big right now, she can wear it for months to come.

I am so excited for this crisp fall weather, and for more adorable matching finds that I’ll be looking for at PinkBlush!

The Sweetest Moccasin Boots with Gracious May

Moccasinsbaby-booties.jpg

How sweet are these little suede moccasin boots from Gracious May? They are the perfect shoe for our two-year-old daughter, and I’ve never loved shoes for her more. The chestnut brown color is great for fall and matches so many of her outfits.

Not only are they simply adorable, but they fit her so perfectly. She normally is a size 6-7 for shoes, and these size 7’s fit her like a glove. These moccasins are so easy to get her feet into, and they zip up and stay up without her being able to kick them off.

They also offer four other colors that are equally as adorable, and I may have to splurge on another pair for Margot. Check out Gracious May’s website to find these sweet moccasins, as well as tons of other sweet children’s products all made in the USA.

Sink Baths with Aveeno

Sink Baths

Word to the wise for all you pregnant mothers out there reading this; sink baths will change your life.

The other day I realized two things. The first is that this little girl is two, and only has a limited number of sink baths left in her life. Soon enough she will not be able to fit in this sink and enjoy this cozy little kitchen environment for her baths.

The second thing I realized is that a bath in the kitchen sink is so much easier for this pregnant mama than a normal bath. I don’t have to awkwardly bend over while my ever-growing belly runs into the side of the tub. This has been so much easier on my back, and sometimes while she’s playing in there I can even get things done around the kitchen. That’s what I call a win-win.

Another win-win is Aveeno. We’ve been using Aveeno baby wash and shampoo, as well Aveeno baby daily moisture lotion and absolutely love it. The baby wash and shampoo blend natural oat extract into a rich lathering wash that cleans without drying. It’s so gentle on skin and hair and leaves a soft fresh baby smell that I simply cannot resist.

Aveeno’s baby lotion helps to soothe and protect my daughter’s delicate skin. It is naturally nourishing and the non-greasy formula absorbs quickly. It is hypoallergenic, fragrance-free and is so gentle for daily use. My daughter’s skin has never been smoother.

I know my daughter won’t stay little forever, so I am enjoying these beautiful moments while I still can.

A Healthy Pregnancy with Promise Prenatal

Maternity

Every week I use an app on my phone to determine what size the baby is, how the baby’s body is developing, and any common pregnancy symptoms this mama may be feeling as well. It always amazes me to see the different senses baby is developing, and how this little human is continually growing inside my own body.

It can be a lot of pressure for a pregnant mama to make sure that she is staying healthy, eating right, and getting enough exercise. That’s why it’s a relief to know that companies like Promise Prenatal put mothers and babies first with every single product they create.

Promise Prenatal has created prenatal vitamins for each trimester with mom and baby in mind, including before pregnancy as well as postpartum. Currently, I am taking the Stage 2 vitamins which I will take through the second and third trimesters. Stage 2 follows the recommendations from the National Institute of Medicine to increase iron at the beginning of your second trimester to help prevent anemia, which is common later in pregnancy. It also provides higher concentrations of vitamin C, calcium and magnesium which mother and baby need during this period of extraordinary growth, and is made from all natural ingredients.

I have also been using Promise Prenatal’s Stretch Mark & Scar Oil. Every time I get out of the shower I rub a little on my growing bump to help prevent stretch marks. It is made from 100% organic oils and helps to maintain healthy, soft & supple skin throughout this pregnancy. Because this is my second pregnancy it feels as though everything is growing so much faster than before. I am so thankful to have this stretch mark oil to help prevent any unwanted stretch marks and lines.

One of my favorite things about Promise Prenatal is that with every purchase they give a mom in a developing country prenatal nutrition. They are a company that truly cares for the health and well being of all mothers and babies.

I may not be the perfect pregnant mother, but Promise Prenatal makes it so much easier knowing I am taking something healthy and safe for my baby and I.

Margot’s Second Birthday!

Birthday Girl

I cannot believe this little girl is already TWO! Everyone told me, “don’t blink, it goes so fast!”, but I did not think time would move as quickly as it has!

We had a fabulous, simple birthday for Margot. Just a small family party, with pizza and wings and a few yummy snacks.

My proud mama moment was the Princess Sofia cupcakes that we made for her. She has been obsessed with Princess Sofia. After making the cupcakes, we made a homemade purple buttercream that we piped along the top. We then placed candy pearls along the cupcake to look like Princess Sofia’s dress. For the birthday girl, we cut out a small Sofia from the waist up and placed her on a special cupcake to make it look like the cupcake was her dress. It turned out better than I could have imagined, and the whole process was so easy!

I also received so many compliments on Margot’s dress which we got on sale at Old Navy for so cheap. I loved the color, but also how simple the dress was.

We did not go overboard for this party and I am so glad. It was perfectly simple just the way we liked it, and it could not have been a more beautiful day to celebrate our little girl.
