    Baby Baby on My Mind

    Pulling all of Ezzy’s baby clothes out of storage today and getting super emotional. I had forgotten about so many little outfits, shoes and onesies I loved so much! Can’t wait to put them on this new little guy! (Aren’t hand me downs the best?)

    Let’s get real here… laundry is one of those things that I’m NOT super excited about after baby. With two kids it’s going to get crazy for sure. You moms with 3+… how do you do it?! It’s not exciting, but it’s inevitable. And with all those cute baby clothes it’s a necessity. Choosing a product I totally trust and have been using since Ez was a baby makes doing all those loads a bit easier. I know we won’t have any issues with allergic reactions or uncomfortable rashes from clothing which totally gives me peace of mind!

    Dreft purtouch is awesome for so many reasons. It is a 65% plant-based formula that is hypoallergenic and is from Dreft, the #1 pediatrician-recommended baby detergent brand. It’s free of dyes, chlorine, phosphates, ethanolamine and optical brighteners – specially formulated to help make the world gentle for baby.

    I also learned with Ez how important it is to wash everything before putting them on baby’s skin, even (and especially) things that are new. Ezra had SUPER sensitive skin and broke out in a rash after wearing one of his new little onesies. (Parent fail. ) He was fine, but just one more thing to worry about! Not taking that chances this time! Live and learn right??

     

    In addition, Dreft has partnered with Dr. Jody Levine – board-certified pediatrician, cosmetic and surgical dermatologist – to help educate parents on the best ways to properly care for baby’s skin. Check out her tips on how to protect baby’s skin below:

    Okay few more thing that are awesome:

    The Dreft purtouch formula is made with 100% renewable wind power electricity, is made at a zero manufacturing waste to landfill site and the bottle is 100% recyclable.

    They’re doin’ it right and one less thing to worry about for us so we can enjoy these little bundles.

    Our Inevitable Parentamorphosis


    I went to the store the other day and picked up a new vacuum… I honestly didn’t think too much of it. Definitely didn’t expect it to totally make Clay’s day. As soon as I brought it in, he was unpacking, assembling and testing out each accessory. The corner attachment, the brush, the 360 maneuvering… this went on for a REALLY long time. I think it is official. We are, in fact, adults. And not just any adults, we are becoming our parents.

    We have both been noticing little things here and there that both Clay and I are doing, things our parents do… that we would have never thought we’d be doing.

    Here are a few examples… and I am sure many of you can relate.

    1. The Dad jokes. Sooo many Dad jokes.
    2. Keeping tissues close and handy at all times… up the sleeve tends to be the most convenient.
    3. Organizing Tupperware, the pantry, the linen closet, the organization supplies drawer.
    4. Licking fingers and cleaning faces. Gross, yeah. But it’s the truth.
    5. The decorative pillows.
    6. The decorative towels.
    7. The guest towels and guest sheets.
    8. The “don’t play in there” room.
    9. Labeling, labeling, labeling. Especially the garage.
    10. Bring frugal about the air conditioner and heater, “JUST OPEN UP THE WINDOWS! YOU’LL BE FINE!”
    11. Cutting coupons, cutting the lawn and cutting our insurance bill.

    I guess you could say there are some upsides to becoming your parents… it’s not ALL cringe worthy! I mean, they’re pretty smart, SUPER organized and have just got it together. Ya know? More life experience, if you will. Buying a home for the first time was pretty scary. I remember it well. But Clay, in his Parentamorphosis showed me that home insurance doesn’t have to be. We are successfully adulating after all. And, it didn’t hurt that saving money on home insurance gets me a “line item” in Clay’s budget for new patio furniture! Silver linings, people…

    It is pretty inevitable we become our parents. Some ways good, some ways completely uncool. I’d love to hear the little things you find yourself doing that your parents did… that you said you would never do.

    Traveling in Comfydence

    Location: Amalfi Coast, Italy

    HEADEDSOMEWHERE.COM - marylauren

    This trip so far has been a dream! We’ve been gone just over 2 weeks and I am seriously taking my 
    pregnant body to the limit every day.  Soo much adventuring/walking/exploring/biking… I’m 
    embarrassed to say it’s been more exercise than I have done in years.  BUT SO WORTH EVERY 
    STEP. 
    I grabbed a pack of Hanes Cool Comfort undies before we left because they really are super comfy and cool, 
    I knew that’s for sure what I’d need in the hot weather! And let’s be honest, nobody has time to b
    worried about unmentionables while out n about… too many other things to be juggling like kids, train 
    times, luggage, snacks, camera equipment… the list goes on and on and on. Stay “comfydent” 
    –comfortable AND confident — and conquer it all! 
     
    Okay, and I don’t know if you guys have ever tried Hanes Nano T-Shirts, but I’ve been 
    buying these since high school. I actually still have some from high school.  I wear them all the time 
    and get asked what brand they are all. the. time. Paired with jeans, under overalls, and lately I’ve been 
    wearing them over sleeveless dresses and knotted above my bump. It is the softest, best, tee ever and 
    at only $10 you can buy multiple so you always have them on hand! (I don’t even know how 
    many I have at this point. Too many.)

    Spring Vacationing // Kiddo Edition

    Location: Vacation Dreamin'

    We are finally here! Can’t even believe it. I am sitting right this second in a gorgeous Parisian apartment getting ready to hit the street markets, seriously been dreaming of this my whole life. (Since the days of Beauty and the Beast… the original. Where Belle wasn’t Emma Watson and just techni-color). Okay, yes, that wasn’t Paris. But it WAS France. Close enough, yes? no? I say yes. Will definitely be posting photos of all of the beauty we find, but for now I wanted to show you a few little things we picked up for Ezra for our trip from Bloomingdales!

    I have this love for packing a suitcase with a few “new” items and Bloomingdales has got it all for your Spring travels! I always buy just a couple new things for him (and myself) to take on vacay! And I am a serious sucker for little boy swimmers! Sooo cute. Yes, we are in rainy Paris and it is expected to rain most of the time. HAHA! But next we are headed to Greece! Hoping for some warmer temps so Ezzy can sport the swim trunks! I have also had my eye on these Converse sneaks for a while, so just gave me a reason to grab em. 🙂 Plus, when he tried them on he said he ran “much super super faster”… so that’s always a plus.

    Let’s go chase that warm weather, get out and adventure! 🙂
