Cool Max Review

So stoked to have Britax send their new Boulevard ClickTight in Cool N Dry fabric  for a review! We were coming up on the expiration date for our carseat (used it with all three boys) and it was for sure time fora fresh one! Here are some features and things I am loving about this carseat! The look. Call me vain but I love the look of this seat. The casing around the sides feels so sleek and this Boulevard seat is made with their Cool n Dry fabric which looks amazing even after being wiped down. Raleigh runs hotter … Read more

Cocoon Cam Giveaway

Sponsored by Cocoon Cam picked by BabyList as the best baby monitor in 2018! You’ve heard by now that our kids’ rooms are all in the basement while our room is on the main floor. We did this because we intend to be in the house for many years, and it while it’s not ideal when they’re little, it seemed preferable for a much bigger section of time. Have you done this? Are we in for it?  More worried about the big boys honestly. Does this kid look like he cares? Ha. (Never want to forget how he puts his legs … Read more

new baby prep

This article lives on Wal-Mart.com in partnership with them! Check it out here! When I think about having my first baby nearly eight years ago I look back at that girl so fondly. She was so uncontrollably excited to be a mom. I had graduated college only a few months before my due date and decided to quit my job about a month before my son came. I had been running at a break-neck pace most of my 4 year marriage. Full-time student, employed full-time and also working on side part-time projects and a business I had started. It all … Read more

Graco Extend2Fit 3-in-1 Car Seat with TrueShield Technology

By Emily. Raleigh is off the charts for weight, height, head, the whole enchilada. So needless to say carrying him around in his Infant seat became a struggle pretty fast! We loved our Uppa infant seat but as he has gotten taller and taller he simply didn’t fit it anymore! I have used Graco seats for all my boys now and was glad to try out the Extend2Fit because Raleigh is my first kid that will stay rear facing until he’s 2! This guideline wasn’t in place until Cal was long past the old requirements and I was secretly glad. … Read more

9 months!

By Emily, brought to you by Ergo. It has been awhile since I gave an update on Raleigh and I am heartbroken to say he is 9 months old TODAY! Who who what what? (Name that movie.)  And he’s army crawling everywhere and loves the Wheels on the Bus and saying “hey” and eating literally all day long. He’s sleeping through the night! And of course now that I’ve announced that, he has started to teethe so it may be short lived, but it’s been a sweet couple months! [Two way zipper, for super easy diaper changes!] In our new … Read more

Traveling with Baby

By Emily in partnership with Ergo. We’ve got Spring Break on the brain and fly miles to burn and so today is all about traveling with baby! I’ve already started using both the new Sophie La Giraffe 360 Carrier and their chic new Anywhere I Go Backpack (available exclusively at Babies R Us until March) but I keep thinking about a solo flight I took with Raleigh and how much easier my life would’ve have been with both. Here’s what I’ll be taking next time around!  Left to Right Top to Bottom: First thing, if you’re on baby duty wear slip-on shoes. Something … Read more
