With a new baby on the way we are really thinking ahead on ways to make both boys feel at ease with the transition. For five years it’s been just the four of us and getting one on one time with them hasn’t been too challenging. Each week Russ and I would take Cal or Hayes one on one to run a fun errand, sit side by side while we were doing chores, even bedtimes they get ample time with each of us solo. But now that we’ll be outnumbered, we know we need to be more intentional about this, it won’t come as easily for sure. Baskin-Robbins recently launched their Warm Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches and we partnered together to test them out (when have I ever turned down a baked good, never)! They cleverly called the campaign #sandwiching and thus our new plan was born! Russ and I decided that each week we’ll take one of our kids out just the three of us, a “sandwich” date if you will, with our kiddo in the middle. With mom and dad focusing on just one kid at a time it feels extra, extra special, right? It doesn’t have to be crazy or elaborate just intentional time focused on them. Hayes hasn’t really known what it’s like to be an only child, Callum was born when he was only 16 months old, so the non-stop smiles we got from our date were priceless. He’s such a good boy, a wonderful brother and an even better son, I want to give him the world, and a Warm Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich with sprinkles felt just as good from where he was sitting.You can try these Warm Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches out now at all Baskin-Robbins locations! It is customizable from top to bottom. Hayes mixed and matched with a Dark Chocolate Chunk cookie on top, strawberry ice cream with sprinkles for the middle and a warm Double Fudge cookie for the bottom! The cookie is warm and gooey and it’s such a fun treat, especially for a cookie lovers like us!Read all about The Warm Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich and #sandwiching on their site!
Did you know that you change something like 3360 diapers in a year? Mind BLOWN. So even after a zillion diapers, three kids and a lot of smells I’ve been unable to commit to a diaper pail mostly because I could never find one that didn’t stick out like a complete sore thumb in my house!
When I discovered the Munchkin Step Diaper Pail I was thrilled. Look how pretty it is!! It fits right in to the corner of my messy living space and no one notices it and if they do they just notice it’s so pretty!
On the top part of the lid is a Diaper Pail Baking Soda Cartridge by Arm & Hammer so odor seriously does not stand a chance.
Also I found that at Target when you buy online you will receive a $15 gift card back when you purchase the Munchkin Step Diaper Pail! What’s super cool too is that for every diaper pail sold Munchkin will plant a tree, yes!

Family photos. Just the mention of it can cause your heart to race and your mind to spin. We all want lovely images of our family laughing and playing peacefully together, but is it really possible to get those pictures without threatening “stand still or no ice cream” through gritted teeth? As someone who gets to capture these moments, I assure you, it is. And my favorite place to photograph a family is in their home. I know what you’re thinking: it’s hard enough to get the entire family ready by a certain time not to mention clean my house! But it’s within that space that your love has grown. Where the hard work is done. Where you argue and makeup and teach and gently guide and snuggle and wipe noses. It’s the everyday love that I want to remember as a mother and so as a photographer, it is hands down my favorite thing to document for other families. So today I’ll be sharing a few tips to keep in mind when having portraits taken inside your home while maybe even enjoying the process. 1. Dress mom first. Choose something comfortable that makes you feel confident. Then coordinate the little one’s outfits and lastly dad. Keep things casual like it’s a day in your home and try to avoid that matchy-matchy look.
