I kind of wanted to just throw him in the pot and eat him up! Especially after that delicious 3 hour nap he took this afternoon! 😉

This @chicco.usa fit2 carseat will seriously be a game changer in the rear facing world. One carseat for the first 2 years, a bucket style seat that can easily be moved if needed, how awesome is that?? This is the first day trying it out but I am loving the concept!

Happy Fri-YAY! It's been so crazy around here preparing for Irma, going through it, and then recovering. So exhausted STILL. Grocery stores still aren't stocked so I wasn't able to get items like chicken or milk, but there were some loaves of bread. We're ready to enjoy our weekend, eat post hurricane snacks, and relax!

He's trying, really trying to blow this storm away. There's no storm that our little captain can't handle, he will get us through. Keep us and all of Florida in your thoughts and prayers, we have some rough waters ahead. ❤

This kid gives me a run for my money, like the fact that hiding behind me in this picture is a seriously muddy bottom! 🙈 Check out the link in my profile for more on this GORGEOUS @newlieco diaper bag!One of the style features that grabbed me is the turn lock flap closure, it’s not often you find a diaper bag with that kind of detail. Under the flap, there are 3 main pockets-two of which have other various pockets inside. The large middle pocket is zippered which is where I keep my mom essentials: umbrella, wallet, hand sanitizer, mints…basically all the items I don’t want my kids getting into. It could really fit a whole lot more. The other 2 pockets on either side of the zippered pocket are open, but I haven’t had any issues with anything falling out because they are deep.Both pockets have a bottle/sippy cup sleeve which is great because each kid gets their own pocket! The front open pocket has 2 slide-in pockets as well as a large zippered insulated pocket. I was asked if the insulated pocket would fit an epi-pen, and the answer was absolutely, it would be perfect for something such as that or even snacks that you want kept insulated. The back open pocket is where the included changing pad is kept which is clipped in to its own little space, and this is where I keep diapers and wipes for my youngest as well. There is a small zippered pocket on the back of the bag which could fit a wallet and keys, or candy…you could fit a secret stash of candy there. There is also a key clip on the inside on the bag which keeps my key safe and not buried, always a great feature to have in a diaper bag.I received this diaper bag for free in exchange for my review. All opinions and ideas expressed are my own.@guidanceguide #guidanceguide #mystuffmystory #realreviewsforrealparents #aplaceforparents #officialPGambassador #findanexpert #becomeanexpert #ggsponsored

We are dealing with cold #2 in just 2 weeks. 😔 So glad we have our @crane_usa cool mist drop humidifier to help clear this little ones congestion!••"The Drop has a 1 gallon tank that is easy to fill up in the sink. After filling, you screw on the cap and place onto the base where it will start to pull the water into the system that creates the mist. When it is turned on, it quickly starts producing the cool mist and will automatically shut off if the tank empties, there are also multiple settings for mist output. The drop does not use a filter and is super easy to clean with vinegar and water, there are no hidden pieces to collect mold. Crane also has a 1 year warranty on their products, but we have not had any issues.Cool mist helps to break up nasal congestion which can lead to coughing and other irritations at night, so I feel that it helps my boys to sleep a little better when they come down with a cold. There are also no hot parts like a warm mist humidifier so there is no worry of either of my children knocking it over and burning themselves. It runs very quietly, and the small amount of noise that is does make it actually soothing. There is a green light that turns on when the machine is on so you can see what you are doing at night."•Full review will be on guidanceguide.com soon!@guidanceguide #guidanceguide #mystuffmystory #realreviewsforrealparents #aplaceforparents #officialPGambassador #findanexpert #becomeanexpert

If only I could freeze time and you could always have a big little baby belly, curly bed head, a cute fluffy diaper bottom, and a sweet little toe poking out through a hole in your jammies. ❤

I was completely worn out and stretched to my limit as I was putting my kids to bed tonight. And then my oldest asked me for 5 hugs and 5 kisses and I couldn't help but laugh while doing it. I love my babies even when they run me down, sometimes I just need a little nudge to snap me out of the funk from the day. ❤❤

You think it was you who was enjoying pushing your brother, but it was actually me. Older siblings are good for breaks sometimes! 😜

Nothing is sweeter than a sleeping baby, except maybe when they give you an innocent paci grin!Both of my boys were breastfed so I was always the one who would bring them comfort day and night. Once we introduced the paci, they were able to start healthily self-soothing themselves and sleeping longer stretches when it was just comfort they were seeking. With our first, finding the right paci that he would take was just as difficult as finding the perfect bottle, but once we found the @mam_usa pacifiers, we never looked back! Their lovey was a pacifier...not only did they have to have a paci in their mouths, but they always needed one to hold as well, they are so different yet so much alike!The silicone is so soft and the structure is strong. I love the variety that Mam offers to fit the needs of different babies and I have found that we love the Mam Air pacifiers because they don't allow drool to stay around the mouth which can cause irritation with sensitive skin. Their pacis grow with your child and are available in multiple sizes and designs, they even make glow in the dark pacis which are amazing for nighttime. Mam pacis even come in a sterilizing case that also doubles as a travel case. We love our @mam_usa pacis and will always recommend them to friends and family.••••••@guidanceguide #guidanceguide #mystuffmystory #realreviewsforrealparents #aplaceforparents #officialPGambassador #findanexpert #becomeanexpert #pgcomfortchallenge

Always leading the way! No fear when he took off running across the swinging bridge above the Tacoa River.

We drove up to view the total eclipse in North Carolina, but stayed in Georgia long enough to get in a good hike. The 4 of us hiked up the AT to Cow Rock and had lunch with a view! It was one of our shortest hikes yet, but it was still a great one. Our 3.5 year old is REALLY into it and did a great job hiking up some steep grade by himself. He loves making sure we're on the right trail by pointing out the white blazes!

So excited to have experienced the solar eclipse with our 2 boys today. We took an early drive so we could be in the 100% totality path and it did not disappoint. From the bright sunshine, to a twilight like darkness where we could view the halo around the moon.. just so amazing.

We're all fighting a cold this weekend, the only true way to be welcomed to preschool right? Luckily kids are so resilient and barely notice that they aren't feeling 100%. Sunday plans are lunch and antiquing! What are are doing today?

With so many different styles of diaper bags out there, I am finding that I love the less traditional looking bags. You won't see me walking around with a diaper bag that has characters on it, or a bag with babyish colors that alert every passerby that "Hey, I'm a mom!" Not that people knowing I am a mom is a bad thing (you will see my lovely, well behaved children anyways), but I like to look stylish whenever I am able.The Glam Rosie diaper bag by @lassig_usa is truly a diaper bag that fits that description. When it arrived, my eyes were drawn to the unique trapezoid shape, gorgeous mint color, and rose gold zippers (even the 'clink' of the zippers sounds pretty). It looked nothing like other diaper bags I have seen.Click the link in my profile for pics and full review.I received this product for free to review, all opinions expressed are my own. ••••••@guidanceguide #guidanceguide #realreviewsforrealparents #mystuffmystory #aplaceforparents  #officialPGambassador #findanexpert #becomeanexpert #ggsponsored

Sometimes I wonder if I'm doomed forever with 2 boys who will NEVER get along because they are constantly driving each other crazy. But then I look over from the kitchen and see this. D teaching his little brother how to hold a crayon to write. Maybe there's hope for this boy mom!

Naturally the one day my 3.5 year old actually naps, this guy wakes up an hour early! So, now it's just me, him and a toy truck full of goldfish.

This gorgeous @newlieco bag [as seen in my previous post] fits everything we need + more -- snacks, diapers, toys, etc., and with 3 separate pockets, everything is sorted! There is even an insulated zipper pocket for yogurt pouches...and mama's chocolate. 💁

Back to school means it's almost time for all things Fall! How perfect is this @newlieco diaper bag for the upcoming season?! The best thing is I can use it when the kids aren't around and you won't even know that there are diapers inside 😉.
