  • Camden's 6 Month Update | Happy Half Birthday

    Weight: 20 lbs

    Length: 29.5 inches

    Diaper size: 4

    Clothing size: 9 - 12 months

    Health: Healthy and happy! 

    Sleep: Our little guy is still a super sleeper but I have noticed a few hiccups in his sleep schedule that coincide with meeting milestones in his development. Camden has been working hard on rolling over and sitting up and both developmental peeks have resulted in fussy nights. They only last for a few nights, thank goodness! The worst was just a few nights ago. Camden started rolling over from back to tummy in his crib, and he would get stuck. He hadn’t figured out how flip over on his back, and got crazy frustrated. A few times, I would go into his nursery and help him (after waiting about 10 minutes for him to try and nail it himself), but eventually he found comfort in sleeping on his belly. 

    Diet: We started introducing Camden to a few solids foods this month. He has been showing interest in what we are eating so we thought we would give him the chance to explore. We have given him sweet potato and banana… both of which ended up everywhere except for in his mouth. I love watching him play with his food and figuring out what he is supposed to do with it. A few times, small pieces found their way to his mouth but he was NOT having it and spit them out. I think he is just nosey about what we are eating and wants to be apart of it, but not quite ready. 

    Loves: Being held, being social, parks, coffee dates, walks, being tickled, being read to, bath time, Emily (♥), grandma and grandpa, sucking his thumb, Alkaline Trio (got that from Phil), girls (not thrilled, but whatever), other babies, nap time.

    Dislikes: The kid HATES being alone. I mean, I get it, Mom and Dad are pretty cool but he definitely has separation anxiety. So, I am working on teaching him that being independent is ok, and Mom and Dad are always near by. 

    Milestones: Camden has hit so many milestones this month. He can roll over, he can sit up on his own and he has started saying “da-da”. 

    He is such a wiggle worm and we literally can’t take our eyes off him even for a minute, he will end up on the other side of the room. I think it may be time to get a baby jail.. I mean, play yard for him. :p

    Speech: If he is not sleeping or eating, he is talking. He talks to his hands, to his feet, to his toys, to Emily, to Mommy and Daddy. He is just full of stories. He has been saying “da-da” a lot lately which is SOOOOOOO cute!!!!!! He has the sweetest little voice, I can’t get enough of it.

  • Lily Jade: A Diaper Bag in Disguise and Special Announcement 

    The amount of stuff that comes along with you and baby on even the smallest of outings is ungodly! But its all necessary..what if he is hungry? I need extra bottles, formula and water. What if he has a blow out? I need enough diapers, wipes and change of clothes! What if he is cold? I need a hoodie and his favorite blanket. What if he doesn’t want to play with Daisy (currently, his favorite toy)? I need to bring a back up. What if it gets super sunny? I need his sun hat and sun screen.The list goes on and by the time you have everything stuffed into your diaper bag, its busting at the seams! Oh, and don’t even bother trying to fish anything out because its impossible, unless you’re lucky enough to find what you need at the top. My life as a mom was about to change. 

    When Lily Jade contacted me about reviewing one of their diaper bags, I was ecstatic! Of course, I had read and seen Lily Jade bags in magazines, on several mommy blogs and “must have lists”, so I knew I would absolutely adore this bag… this amazing diaper bag in disguise. 

    You’d never know this beautiful designer bag was stuffed full of blow out essentials and toys for days! The best part is, the chaos that IS a diaper bag is actually capable of being completely organized! One of my absolute favorite features is the removable “Baby Bag” organizer that comes with every Lily Jade bag. I can compartmentalize changing necessities, food, toys and have a separate section for my own things! There are two magnetic snaps that keeps the organizer in place, which also allows it to transform from diaper bag mode to “Mom is going out baby free” mode. 

    I have the “Madeline” in black which can be worn 3 different ways. Across the chest, on the shoulder and as a backpack! My son, Camden is in that wiggly stage and having our bag strapped to my back and totally out of the way, makes everything SO much easier!

    This bag is just wonderful and has changed the way Camden and I go out. Have I convinced you to look into getting your very own Lily Jade diaper bag? I hope so because I have some exciting news! 

    Who doesn’t love a good giveaway!? I have teamed up with Lily Jade and we are giving away a diaper bag to one lucky Instagram follower. Keep an eye out for my official announcement which will be posted next week on my Instagram!
