Teepee Reading Nook

We’ve been in our new house for a few months now and have managed to keep most toys in the playroom.  Yes, majority of them actually stay in the playroom!  I’m a little bit of a neat freak and like to keep things organized, as much as I possibly can.  By keeping their playroom organized, it gives them a sense of excitement.  They can visually see where everything is, rather than everything being cluttered.  I love watching them play and interact.  They’re at an age now where they can understand each other a little more.

Both my babies love books, LOVE them!

I thought it’d be fun to create a reading nook for my son and daughter to enjoy.  A teepee was the perfect little reading spot for them.

The Perfect Diaper Bag || Lily Jade

Disclosure: Lily Jade provided me with a diaper bag for the purpose of writing this post.  All opinions expressed are my own.  This post may contain affiliate links.

 

I just got my very first Lily Jade diaper bag and I’m obsessed with it!  I wish I’d gotten my hands on one sooner being that it is beautiful and doesn’t even look like a diaper bag.  I honestly can’t remember the last time I used a fancy purse, diaper bags have been on my shoulder for four years now!   What I love about Lily Jade is that their bags make you feel like you’re carrying a gorgeous bag, not a bulky stuffed diaper bag.  You can wear it with anything and it still looks great.

And to all my non-mommy friends, this diaper bag is still the perfect BAG!   Carry it as your everyday purse, no diapers needed!  The bag can be used over the shoulder, cross body and backpack carry.  The straps are long and wide, comfortable to carry any way you prefer.

I have two active little ones, a four year old and one year old.  Backpack carry is a must for me.  I personally can’t stand my bag slinging off my shoulder when I have to bend down multiple times a day.  The Meggan is perfect for me, the straps are thick and sit on my shoulders comfortably without slipping off.

Every Lily Jade bag comes with a removable 12 pocket organizer and changing pad.  It’s such a pretty pop of color and so easy to clean, it’s washable!  The pockets are huge, they’re deep enough to organize everything from diapers, wipes, sippy cups, or snacks.  There’s even room for all your mommy items.

This diaper bag is stunning, if you’re a mom or soon to be mom, this is a must have.  The quality of the diaper bag is exquisite and created to last beyond the diaper carrying days.  So, even if you’re not a mother, this bag is still a winner.

What diaper bag is your personal favorite?  Let me know your thoughts and comment below!

J’s Nursery || White, Navy & Grey

A huge thank you to DaVinci Baby, Lorena Canals & My Green Mattress for sponsoring this post.

When I found out I was pregnant I knew I wanted a modern nursery for J, nothing cluttered just crisp and clean.  My preference was decor that would grow with him as he got older.  Eventually I want to incorporate spaceships and planets, but for now I think his nursery is perfect.  I love the color and decor combination.

ON-THE-GO HEALTHY SNACKS FOR TODDLERS

“This post was developed in partnership with Similac. All opinions are my own.”

Summer is in full effect here in Texas.  We just got settled into our new home and I’m still discovering new spots to take my little ones.  Luckily, my friend mentioned there was a neat water museum that the kids were sure to love.

We went on a little playdate and the kids had a blast.  It was a fun and educational trip, learned great tips on daily water conservation and how to keep our Earth clean.

Our Summer Bucket List + Healthy Snacks For Baby & Toddler

This post may contain affiliate links.

We live in Texas, summer starts early for us, very early!  I have a 3 year old and 11 month old that are full of energy, I’m always in search of fun activities they can both enjoy.

1. Go bowling.  Although my son is too young for this, he had a blast watching his sister bowl.  The music in the bowling alley had him moving and dancing while he clapped for his sister.

2. Go to the beach.  Build a few sandcastles and enjoy the fresh air.    

3.  Visit the aquarium.  A fun way to explore and see how animals live under the sea. 

4. Have game nights.  This is definitely my daughter’s favorite thing to do.  She is obsessed with Trolls in Trouble Game.  I’m not going to lie, I enjoy this game a lot too.  It’s adorable watching her get so engaged with the game while we all play.  Another one of our favorite board games is Candy Land, classic and fun!

5. Visit a splash park.  Most cities have splash parks with free admission!  

6. Run in the sprinkler.  My daughter got this sprinkler as a birthday gift when she turned one!  We’ve been using it ever since. We’re excited to have JJ try it out.

7. Make s’mores together.  So much fun to make, you can see one of our favorite s’mores recipe here.     

8. Build a fort and take a nap.  Oh, naps.  For some reason naps and toddlers just don’t mix well.  Why do I need a nap, Mama?  I’m not tired.  Common words used in my house.  However, when we build forts, my girl is eager to nap.

9. Play in blow up pool.  This inflatable play center is amazing and on sale!  My friend Melanie had one for her daughter’s birthday party and it was a hit.  Fun way to stay cool in the summer.

10. Have a picnic.  Whether it’s a backyard picnic or at a park, your child will be excited to eat somewhere different.  We always make sure to pack Sprout® baby food and snacks.  This is something we’ve been doing a few times a week and my kids are loving it.

Sprout® just launched a new line of plant-based food products, plant-based protein baby food and plant-powered toddler snacks.  They’ve made healthy eating incredibly easy for mom’s on the go and my kids love when I pack Sprout® baby food and snacks for them.  In fact, they were the first brand to put baby food in food pouches making it convenient to pack healthy food for babies and toddlers.

JJ loves the taste of the plant-powered pouch purees.  They serve as a healthy alternative to meat and dairy based protein.  Baked from chickpeas and lentils, the cheddar curlz quickly became his favorite snack.

Sprout® uses only USDA certified organic and non-GMO ingredients, and contains no artificial ingredients or preservatives.  Their products contain a mix of whole fruits, vegetables and grains.
