2013 Holiday Gift Guide

With a new baby, celebrating first is so much fun. She has been picking up her head and scooting backwards lately, but I would not call it crawling yet. I am on the edge of my seat to see her crawl for the first time along with all of her other firsts.

Before and After Kids #Motherfunny

After hours of being with the baby, I need something funny to lighten my mood. My favorite new place to get my laughs is and NickMom programming on Nickelodeon. In the spirit of NickMom, I created this list of the Top 7 Things About Working from Home that are different before and after kids.

Daylight Savings Baby Advice & Pamper

Daylight Savings Baby Advice

This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Pampers. I was provided the featured product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine.

My little one was consistently sleeping through the night for a few weeks and now as the time-change approaches I have not had a full nights sleep in days! I find that Cami sleeps better when she is dry overnight. Pampers recently came out with a superior dry diaper that is designed for overnight and to stay dry over a 12 hour period. She has yet to sleep 12 hours for me, but it will be nice to know that the diaper will  hold up when she does. During time-change transitions such as End of Daylight Savings Time, Pampers Baby Dry Diapers has been helping smooth the transition.

Bumbo Floor Seat

Bumbo Floor Seat Review

Product provided for review purposes only. All opinions are 100% my own.

The Bumbo Floor Seat is perfect for my little Cami. She recently started to be able to hold up her head, but she cannot sit up on her own. The Bumbo is super light and is extremely easy to clean! Just wipe off anything that gets on it.  It extremely easy to travel with because it is so light! Cami does not love doing tummy time, but I still make her do it. I like using the Bumbo to strengthen her neck muscles.

The Mother of All Baby Showers

I attended The Mother of All Baby Showers a few weeks ago and had a blast checking out all the new brands and new goodies from the old brands. Cami is an infant, and I love finding good stuff that will help her learn and play. Also, I love finding ways to keep her safe that never occurred to me. Like the bumpers that go around the individual bars. They are called Wonder Bumpers! I am serious considering getting a set for Cami’s crib.

Camilla Gray!

A little over a month ago, I gave birth to the love of my life, Camilla Gray. She came in to the world during a planned c-section in early July. She was 9 pounds 2 ounces, 21 inches, and was born with a full head of black hair. I have been recovering from my c-section for the past few weeks and I am finally starting to feel normal again. It does not help that I have not been sleeping as much as normal, but even with the lack of sleep, I am getting better. I just started really dressing her up in the outfits that everyone has bought for her. She’s actually already in size 3 month clothing. She went through the newborn clothing in about 2 1/2 weeks. As soon as she regained her birth weight, they started getting tight.

5 Must Haves for Moms Post C-Section

My C-Section was planned because of the size of my daughter. She was estimated to be over 10 pounds, but came out 9 pounds 2 ounces. I had gestational diabetes that causes babies to be born at a higher birth weight. As with any serious surgery, you cannot really plan for the pain involved. Luckily, … Read more

Baby Shower Favors

My belly is getting bigger by the day and we just had our baby shower last weekend. The gifts somehow made the her coming more immenient and real. The Baby Shower Favors were probably the most fun thing about the baby shower preparation. If you have already hosted a baby shower, you know how much work it is. My sister, Bobbie took care of almost everything and I asked the lovely people at The Village Stand to help me find some local goodies to use as Baby Shower Favors for my guests.
