The 5 Summer Traditions I had to Abandon Because of my Toddler #Toddlers #SummerTraditions #JaxRyder

Summer is here in all its splendor and to so many of us that brings to mind beloved traditions from our own childhoods! Playing in the sprinklers, ice cream trucks, riding our bikes and beach trips galore. While these were the things of my childhood, my kids lives look a little bit different. I tried. […]

The Baltic Amber Teething Necklace by Toogli Really Does Help with Teething!! #AmberTeethingNecklace #Teething

My Thoughts Teething necklaces are one of those things that I totally thought were a fad just for looks and didn’t actually work. That is, until I tried one! Jax started teething at a couple of months old and I bought a teething necklace for him. I instantly noticed the difference when he stopped waking […]

The First Baby Wrap I Actually Love! #babymorecobabywrap

  My Thoughts I have never been a big “baby wearer.” Jax is my third baby and I have tried so many different things, I finally gave up. Everything seemed to hurt my back or my shoulders, or both, or the baby just didn’t like being in it. For that reason I pretty much just […]

How I Transformed These White Chinese Lanterns for Jax’s First Birthday #whitepaperlanterns

My Thoughts We are getting ready to celebrate my baby Jax’s first birthday! It’s such a magical time and I want to make it as special as possible, without spending a fortune or going overboard.

Your Baby Would Love the Baby Bud Booster Seat for Christmas! @Mamasandpapas #MamasandpapasUSA #HolidayGiftGuide

My Thoughts Why does baby gear have to take up so much room? There’s the toys, high chairs, pack n play, crib, bouncer, swing, jumper…the list goes on and on! Babies need a lot of stuff! As a minimalist this is really hard for me, especially after I’d gotten rid of all my baby gear when […]

My Thoughts I have always loved Melissa & Doug because of their outstanding quality and educational value. When shopping for my kids I seek out the brand because it’s one I know I can trust. Target, my favorite holiday shopping site, is always fully stocked with great selection. This year is Jax’s first Christmas so […]

Your Baby will be the hit of the Holiday Party in Offspring! @shopoffspring #shopoffspring

My Thoughts Oh my gosh, I have to gush! These clothes are beyond adorable! The second I saw them, I wanted them all! I really really wanted the above pictured Chevron pj’s, in blue of course, but they only went up to 9 months and Jax is in 12 month clothes. How precious is this? […]

My Thoughts I just love stuffed animals! Always have, always will. It’s not socially acceptable for adults to have stuffed animals but that’s the beauty of having children! You get to live vicariously through them and their toys, are like your toys! That’s why I was so excited to get this adorable Gingerbread Latte Bear […]
