Celebrating Baby’s Firsts

This post about baby's firsts has been brought to you by Pampers.  All opinions are mine.

Baby Brother is our third child, but yet, everything seems brand new all over again.  It has been amazing to me that we are still sometimes confused about what to do and how much we have forgotten since D was a newborn…just three years ago!  I'm also pleasantly surprised that all of Baby Brother's firsts are so special.  I was worried that he would have "third child syndrome" but so far, I do believe he's getting more love and [...]

This post is brought to you by Citrus Lane.  All thoughts and opinions are 100% mine.

The Captain and D both have birthdays close to Christmas, and the new Baby will, as well.  I sometimes have a little guilt over the fact that they can only celebrate with gifts one or two months out of the year.  We don't let that stop us from buying them things they need or little things they might want throughout the year, [...]

Should We Switch To A Big Boy Bed Because Baby Is Coming?

crib

Everyone who knows our family or who has read this blog knows that we've struggled to keep the Captain in his own bed at night.  You see, shortly after D was born, just after the Captain turned 2, we decided that he needed his own "big boy" bed.  We put him in a different room, in a twin bed with bedrails.  It worked pretty well.  D was not in the crib yet, but everything I had read suggested to give the older sibling time [...]

D Loves His Doodle Pants!

This Doodle Pants post was written by me.  I received a free product in exchange for my honest opinions.

With having two boys, (and one on the way!) I have always felt our options are limited in the way of cute clothes.  Sure, there are a lot of cute clothes for boys, but it's rare that I find something different that is fun, functional, and just plain cute.  When we first received these Doodle Pants for D to wear, I honestly [...]

Wordless Wednesday: Blast From The Past – March 2011

What a difference two years make!  I hope you enjoy this blast from the past, where Baby D appears to be very frightened by the Captain's dinosaurs!  Funny because now D is wearing this shirt!

Protect Your Kids From RSV This Season

​Did you know that RSV is a common seasonal virus that affects two-thirds of all infants by age one and almost 100% of babies by age two?  RSV is highly contagious and can live on surfaces for several hours or can be spread by kissing, touching, and hugging.  RSV usually only causes mild to moderate cold-like symptoms, but in some babies, it can result in a very serious repiratory infection.  Preemies are especially at risk because of their under developed lungs and fewer antibodies to fight off infections.  There is no cure for RSV and it usually [...]

Holiday Gift Idea for Little Ones: “Over The Moon: The Broadway Lullaby Project” CD

broadway lullabye project

If you've read this blog much at all, you'll know that Captain Fussybuckets has always been, well…fussy…about going to bed.  Even since he was a baby, his sleeping habits have been less than desirable.  We have never had a lullaby CD, but when I showed the "Over The Moon:  The Broadway Lullaby Project" CD, he was excited about having his very own lullaby CD and wanted to listen to it that [...]
