Tips for Beating the Heat in July

Summer-time in Georgia is HOT and humid. For the most part we enjoy the indoors and stay cozy in air conditioning. Since Soren has extremely sensitive skin I try to avoid letting him get too sweaty since his eczema tends to flair up pretty bad when he sweats. For those of you that are looking to keep your little ones cool during the hot months, here are a few of our favorite ways to beat the heat in July!

Fun and Easy Chalkboard Month-by-Month Pregnancy Photos

When I found out I was pregnant, I was so excited to document the journey. I’ve always taken pregnancy pictures with each of my pregnancies, but this time I wanted to do something special. Chalk it up to Pinterest and its extensive pregnancy photo pins. I knew I didn’t want anything elaborate. Just something sweet and simple that would be easy to complete each month. I found the perfect little chalkboard that made it all possible. Notice how I wasn’t limited to one location with my fun and mobile chalkboard prop for my month-by-month pregnancy pictures.

I’m back today, sharing another post in my “Surviving 3 Kids” series here on Disney Baby. Today, let’s talk about a trip to the pool. No matter how many little ones you have, an afternoon at the pool can be a bit hectic. From keeping an eye on clumsy toddlers to avoiding the rowdy 12-year-olds (who don’t know to watch out for the clumsy toddlers,) it is a workout! This summer, we got a family pool pass and have been going a few times a week. Now that we’ve been at it for a month or so, I feel like I have a better idea on what to do and how to survive with three little ones at the pool…

Motherhood: The Hard Part

It’s taken me weeks to be able to sit down and put these words to the keys. Motherhood is hard. Really hard. While I love sharing with you all the magical moments, sharing the tough stuff is what makes all of this real. Being a parent isn’t a walk in the park. It gets tough.
