Prime Day!

First of all, if you don’t have Amazon Prime, what are you waiting for? I honestly don’t know what I did before Prime. It is so nice with our hectic lives to just get things delivered in two days, let alone the subscribe & save discounts on diapers, snacks, etc. We also love Prime Video! Click here for a free Prime trial to enjoy Prime Day and all of our other favorite benefits.

First, let’s address the elephant in the room: Amazon totally dropped the ball on having their site working today. So, *if* you are able to get through to Amazon, I wanted to share some of my favorite Prime Day specials.  If you click through on any of my links, I may receive a small commission, so thanks in advance for your support 🙂

Before I launch into today’s deals, I wanted to share about our new bedsheets. I came across these sheets from another Instagrammer and they. are. amazing. The best part is they are only $25!!! They have a zillion great reviews on Amazon, and so far we have loved them!!

Okay, here are some 2018 Prime Day Deals!

Bumpdate #1

I’m hoping to post updates every few weeks of how the pregnancy is going. I want to be open and share my experiences, and I also want to use this as a journal to remember the pregnancy. Pregnancy (and even once the baby arrives) literally FLIES by, and without writing things down, everything blends together and it’s impossible to remember how things were at certain points in time. Here is my first update, which encompasses everything about this pregnancy so far!

Seize the Day! 

Can you believe there isn’t a single filter on this picture?? The first morning of our Colorado vacation, Charlie woke up at 5:45am. (Thanks for nothing time zone change) Rather than throw ourselves a pity party, we brewed some coffee, packed her up, and walked to catch sunrise by the Frisco marina.  We were legit the only ones out there, and it was actually quite cold, but God provided us the most magical morning.  It is crazy to think that if we stayed in we would have missed this.  We even went again the next morning and it wasn’t nearly as beautiful. You just never know when a moment like this is waiting. Moral of the story? Seize the day (and God is so good!)

Here are some more pictures from that morning.

Baby Led Weaning & Daycare 

One of my biggest concerns with baby led weaning was how we were going to make it work with Charlie’s daycare. Baby led weaning is a fairly new concept versus the traditional puree route, and it also requires that the caregiver is educated both on the method and appropriate CPR techniques.  Charlie has gone full time to a wonderful daycare since she was 4 months old. We didn’t start her on solids until she was 6 months old, but long before then her teachers were eager to give her solids. Our daycare requires parents to send meals at all ages, so this atleast put us in the driver seat for when “solids” would happen. We gave her teachers a high level summary of why we were holding off and explained the method we were going to use.  I assured them that I would send food when I was more comfortable with it all. After all, for the first month we just offered one meal a day (dinner) and only started offering breakfast well into month 7.
