Make a Splash With Disney Baby

I was talking with one of my best friends the other day about how we wanted to put our boys into swim lessons this summer. Thinking about that obviously got my wheels turning on cute swimwear for this summer. The temperatures are starting to warm up down here in the south, and we are so excited to be planning our first summer with a toddler! Make a splash with Disney Baby this summer!

Toddler Take-Along Essentials

The baby stage is sweet and snuggly, but I have to admit that moving into the toddler stage has been somewhat of a relief. When Elvie was a baby, we had to bring so much stuff along with us. My bag was always unwieldy, and I almost always forgot something essential and had to pick up an extra while we were out. These days, there are just six things we need to bring along, even if we will be out all day. My bag is lighter, and we get out more, because it’s simpler. Here are my six essentials that I throw into my bag as we leave.

Making Your Little One Feel Special When You're Away

My husband and I will be heading out on a little “babymoon” and it will be our first getaway without our daughter since before we came parents. She’ll be staying with her grandparents and I know they’re going to have a blast, but I still wanted to do a little something to make her feel special while we’re away and to let her know that we’re thinking of her. So I came up with a fun, little idea for these “Missing You” countdown bags.


My Secret Weapon for Flying with Little Ones

A few weeks ago, I flew alone with my two little girls (ages 1 and 3) from North Carolina to Las Vegas to visit my parents.

Traveling with Kids

Even with a direct flight, it was a 5 hour flight, and I was admittedly very nervous.

Because I was traveling alone, I wanted to pack as lightly as possible since I was the sole pack mule, and this included not stuffing my carry-on with entertainment for the plane.

Our First Overnight Away from Baby: He Made It (and We Did Too!)

A couple of weekends ago, we celebrated the wedding of our dear friends Cort and Sarah. It just so happened to be the weekend of our own wedding anniversary and their wedding was at a swanky hotel in Philadelphia – conveniently just a half hour away from all the grandparents. The stars had aligned for a perfect overnight getaway!

While Larry periodically travels overnight for work, that weekend was the first time I’d be overnight and away from Judah since he came home from the hospital nearly 8 months ago. I was nervous the week of our big overnight away, but everyone survived and we all managed to have a marvelous time!

If you’re thinking about an overnight away (or even just an extended date night out) here are my tips to help you prepare, stay sane, and actually enjoy yourself!
