Spring Break Style

By the time you read this, we'll be soaking up the sun in Scottsdale, AZ!  We usually go every year and I'm so happy that we got away this year, considering we have a 3 month old in tow.  It will be the first time that Wyatt gets to soak up the sun on his little leggies and I am sure that Ethan will love the pool this year.

Follow along on Instagram to see all the fun!  ;)

I hope you all have a great weekend!

0-3 Month Baby Favorites

I always enjoy learning what gear and products new moms love for their babies.  And since it's been over two years since I last had a baby, I wanted to be sure to update you on my latest favorites.  You can see my 1 month favorites and 2 & 3 month favorites from when I had Ethan, in case you're interested.

Dr. Brown Nursing Pillow c/o: Yes, I received this pillow for free, but it really is my favorite.  As far as breastfeeding pillows go, I also have the Brest Friend and Boppy, but this one is my favorite.  It's angled and easy to get on and off.  AND it's high enough that I don't have to completely hunch over to nurse, which is great.
Solly Baby Wrap: I love how lightweight and soft the Solly wrap is.  And Wyatt just LOVES being held in it  It's especially great for walks
Everyone Soap: I recently discovered this soap at the market and haven't looked back.  It's great for Wyatt and Ethan...makes bubbles and has the best "unscented" smell.
Honest Diapers: The patterns are cute, they have great customer service and they're safe for the environment.
Satsuma Mittens: Best baby mittens, hands down.
Nuroo Swaddler: I love that this swaddler grows with baby.  And the fabric is super soft as well.
Marc by Marc Jacobs Diaper Bag: Gender friendly, lightweight and chic.  'Nough said.

What are your favorite 0-3 items for baby?

Happy 3 months Wyatt!

Another month has flown by and we have finally hit the three month mark, which in our mind, is the magical month.  We remember with Ethan {you can read his 3 month update here} that this time was when things started to click into place.  Wyatt is more substantial and out of that 'new' newborn stage.  
Wyatt is a super smiley baby...he just loves when you stare at him and talk to him.  He lights right up and has recently started to coo in response.  I think he's trying to keep up with his big brother...who he absolutely adores.  Ethan really hasn't missed a beat since Wyatt was born.  He loves kissing him on the head {still!}, holding him and talking to him.  When Wyatt cries, Ethan says, "Wyatt being cranky".  Every now and then Ethan will walk into the room when I'm holding Wyatt and ask me to put him down, but it's not very often.  As Wyatt gets older, it just becomes that much more fun for Ethan.

Wyatt discovered his fists this past month and can suck on them for long periods of time.  He also, thankfully, likes his pacifier and has taken to a bottle easily.  So easily, in fact, that I think he gets frustrated when we nurse and my milk doesn't let down right away.  Thankfully, my let down has been much better this time around.

Wyatt still prefers to be held over anything, but has gotten used to his swing as well.  He loves the Solly Wrap and sleeps well when I take him out on walks.  Ethan never took to a wrap-style carrier so it's fun this time around to have a baby that enjoys being worn.  He also, thankfully, sleeps well in his bassinet at night...I think we're up to seven hour stretches now!  We should probably think about moving him over to his crib soon.  Another thing he enjoys now is his baths...though we're lucky if we give him one every three days or so.

Other things this past month--he celebrated his first Easter. has learned to track us by voice or just watching us, and has possibly laughed for the first time--with his daddy.  I haven't heard it yet, so we will see if counts!  ;)  Last, I went back to work when Wyatt turned 12 weeks.  I've been going into the office here and there, but now Wyatt is with the nanny or his grandma during the week.  I still plan to bring him into the office when I can, but it's hard to balance watching him and working right now...especially because he really does prefer being held.

Wyatt is in 0-3 month clothes or 3 month, depending on the brand.  We just moved him into 2 diapers.  His hair has fully grown back in and his skin seems to have cleared up for the most part.  His eyes are dark gray, with a hint of brown and blue, depending on the light.

I plan to post on the 1-3 month baby gear we're enjoying later this week.

Our Easter 2015

We had a great Easter weekend...Wyatt's first and Ethan's first that he really "got it".  I can just only imagine how fun next year will be with two running around!  ;)

Frozen was the theme this year...and it actually snowed on Easter too!  Thankfully we had a little Easter egg hunt on Friday and Saturday before Easter...and Ethan was on a sugar-high for three days straight, yikes!  

I hope you all had wonderful Easters as well!

Choosing a Headboard {and a mattress!}

Ryan and I decided that after five years of sleeping on a Californian King (a wedding present to ourselves) that we not only need a new mattress (there is a HUGE hump down the middle of ours) but that we want a traditional king sized bed.  The Californian size, while nice for a tall guy, isn't quite as wide.  With a toddler constantly climbing in our bed, the width is more valuable to us now.

Once we get our tax return back, we'll be in the market for a you have one that you love?  I don't know where to begin, but it's true that a couple minutes spent on a mattress in the store is not consistent with the long-term comfort.  So let me know if you have a brand/type of mattress that you love!

I also want to finally get a headboard and I have my eye on this one...

It's the Mia Wingback bed from One Kings Lane.  I like that it's modern and yet still a bit traditional.  I'm also leaning towards a head tufted headboard.  If you have one that you love, let me know in the comments!

Also, if you're looking for the COMFIEST, most amazing sheets, then you should definitely buy the pure beech sateen sheets.  They are so luxurious.  We love them!

Here's a mood board for what I would love our master bedroom to look like...eventually!

Headboard // Side Table // Lamp // Sea Salt Paint Color // Mirror {similar}
Pillow 1 // Pillow 2 // Pillow 3 // Moroccan Wedding Blanket

You can see the current state of our master here.

Thanks for your input!

Planning a Spring Baby Shower

My best friend is having a sweet little baby girl this July and I am helping to co-host her shower.  Most of my close friends have had boys and, if you've been following along here for any length of time, you know I have two boys myself, so you can imagine how excited I am do dream of a super fun and feminine day for my bestie!

I love some great inspiration...and I'm pretty sure I look like the heart-eyed emoji over these photos:


What is key for a feminine baby girl shower?  Beautiful flowers, gold accents, LOTS of pink and of course some delicious desserts!

One of the best parts of throwing a shower is putting together the invitation...and I always defer to Minted for my invitations, announcements and holiday cards.  They really are the best.  Here are my favorites:

And in case you're looking for baby shower invitations for boys, this, this {in blue} and this {also in blue} are my favorite!

Are you planning any baby showers this spring?
