My Toddler's Love for Sweets

I don’t think I ever meant to purposely use candy as a bartering tool with my toddler but some how it has become a last ditch go-to source to either ease a situation, calm a tantrum or change his focus to something else. It isn’t always my first option though, however for my dad – grandpa, he quickly learned that sweets are the way to my son’s heart.My Toddler's Love for Sweets

A Boy And His Best Bud Mickey

Lately, KJ has become very attached to his stuffed animal- Mickey Mouse toy! Take a look inside to see what a day is like for these precious best buds KJ and Mickey:

We Have A Walking Ten-Month-Old!

Bentley, our ten-month-old son is officially walking everywhere! He took his first few steps when he was just nine months old but now he can take fifteen plus steps in a row without falling.

It’s so funny to me watching this little bitty guy walk around. He seems so young to me to be doing something so monumental.

How Our Bedtime Routine Has Changed

Sometimes I still can’t believe Judah is 20 months old already! There’s been so much that has changed as he’s grown from a sweet tiny newborn to an adventurous, curious toddler. I’ve seen some of the biggest changes in something as simple as our bedtime routine as our toddler has grown.

Our Magical New Lunchtime Item

As a stay-at-home mom, I always have lunch with my two sons. Most days we are home for lunch and they sure do know how to make a mess when they eat! Thankfully, though, we were recently given an item that helps us keep the mess down. Read on and find out what it is!

I am totally obsessed with these waterproof, sleeved bibs from Bumkins.

I wasn’t sure how my boys would react to wearing something on their arms during mealtime, but they weren’t bothered by the bibs at all! It helps that the material is actually very soft and that it has pictures of KJ’s favorite characters on them.

We love the Monsters, Inc. decor from Disney Baby. The boys’ nursery is decorated with turquoise and bright green and gray so anything Monsters, Inc. usually matches the theme we have for the boys already.

When lunch was over, I removed the bibs and Voila!, no mess and totally clean shirts! KJ actually liked the bib so much he asked to wear it again at dinner. That has NEVER happened before.

I pack them into our diaper bag and take them with us to restaurants and parents always ask us where we got them from and compliment us on how clean our kids have stayed!

If I were you, I would definitely order a few of these for your little ones.
