Three Month Update and Pumping Must Haves!

Three Months Guys--I'm in disbelief that it has already been three months with this sweet boy.

It's so hard when your last baby is growing and changing right in front of your eyes. You kinda have a love/hate relationship with it. You love that they are hitting their milestones and growing, but you hate that your brand new baby is no longer brand new. This sweet boy had his first family trip to Disney this month, and he also went to the fair and Dinosaur World. I like to say that Carson has developed his survivor mode. If Bennett comes near him with tons of toys he no longer lets out yells or screams he kinda just deals. I love the relationship these two already have.

3 Essential Toddler Apps

I received a KidloLand to share in an honest review. This post also contains affiliate links. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. 

Essential Toddler Apps Kidloland, ABCmouse
With a new baby, screen time was inevitable in this house. We try to keep the iPad with my purse so it can be used only in the car, but when I'm home alone with the boys and trying to get Carson settled I sometimes hand it over for a few minutes. Until I can resume playing cars with my little gearhead. We started with simple Fisher Price Laugh and Learn apps when he was younger to get him used to navigating the iPad, and now he can navigate in and out of the apps to find what he's looking for. If your little one hasn't quite grasped the ins and outs of starting a new app--put the iPad on guided access so they can't get out of the app you started.

Carson: 1 Month and Our Favorites

I am in disbelief that my baby is already one month. I am cherishing this newborn stage though-- every cry, snuggle, and kiss he needs.

I actually had this written before he even turned 1 month, but I really wanted my birth post posted first. Type A problems. If I can say anything about this month, is that it has been a wonderful one. I truly feel like my family is complete and that makes me so extremely happy. I am so blessed with two wonderful boys and I can't wait to watch them grow up together.

Carson Lee: A Birth Story

Ashley Yvonne Photography

I was semi terrified to get pregnant with a second as I had such a rough first pregnancy with Bennett--we're talking zofran daily, headaches daily, sciatic pain, the list goes on. When we decided to get pregnant again, I kinda just prepared myself for the worst, with a toddler I knew it wouldn't be easy--but the end results are what makes it all worth it. 

I guess I hadn't learned anything from the entire pregnancy being different, cause I somehow assumed that I would deliver around 38 weeks with this little guy as well, water breaking in bed, rush to hospital, and have him 12 hours later. If that wasn't the farthest from the truth.

Easy Snacks for the New Year

I am a very indecisive person when it comes to eating, rummaging through the pantry I usually can't narrow down a snack to less than 2 items. I'm pretty sure that is how trail mix was created. Now with a two week old and a toddler, I need a quick treat to give me some energy to conquer get by until my husband gets home. I'm partnering with Post® Mom's Best® Cereal to create a trail mix that will be perfect for your busy family in 2017.
