There are so many things I'm thankful for and one of those is the amount of nature areas Washington state has to offer. I'm so thankful we were able to get out and walk Nisqually Wildlife Perserve before the "Stay Home, stay healthy" order the Gov. placed. It was wonderful to get out one last time, this staying home is tough and I don't know how we're going to manage?!! #pnw #nature #optoutside #stayhome #momlife #sendwine

🌴On Saturday we took advantage of the sunshine and finally got out of the house! This will be a rough and trying time for our mental health, not going to lie. But we got to play at the local beach while practicing #socialdistancing it was wonderful! 🌻And we found a beautiful painted rock, thank you to who ever hid it!

What are you going to do with your child if homeschooling isn't cut out for them or your family? Take a deep breath, exhale and relax. It'll be okay! Everyone's health and wellness is much more important at this time than academics. I've got a list of activities if you'd like some structure in your lives though. Check it out on my blog.

Glad we were able to squeeze in one more trip out into the community and zoo before things start shutting down. Friday Piper and I made an impromptu visit to Pt defiance zoo! It was great minus the cold/rain; there was only a couple other people, animals were active, didnt need to touch anything. Now schools are out for 6 weeks and we plan on quarantining ourselves at home for most of that time, except to get out into nature.

On February 3 I started My Peak Challenge and happy to say I'm still going strong! I've been needing to make some lifestyle changes and get more active. I've been working to control what I eat, getting some kind of exercise  in daily which I'm really enjoying. I didn't think I'd ever say that! 💚 #MPC2020 has truly started changing my life, I've had more positive thoughts and my body feels good. @mypeakchallenge

Just an IDEA!! With the coronavirus and people stocking their homes with TP, disinfecting wipes, tissues, hand santizer.... Think about buying an extra wipe container, hand santizer and/or tissue box and donate it to your child's teacher. I'm 100% positive they wouldnt turn it down! Keep in mind I'm sure the school is supplying them with some stuff but a lot of times teachers spend money out of their own pockets for classroom stuff. Remember your child is spending a good portion of their time at school right now, not just at home.

It’s amazing how many great baby products there are compared to 9 years ago, over the short four weeks with a new baby we have fallen in love with certain baby items! There are also items that will forever be on the “must have” list! As a parent you are always searching for those items that will make your life easier and more comfortable. Whether you a first time parent and have no clue where to begin or a seasoned parent there are still products that you may not have tried. Check out my 9 favorite baby items and leave me a comment with you/your families must haves! And don’t forget to enter the giveaway below!!

 

Baby Carrier : I’m in LOVE with the ERGOBABY carrier, with Mason I used an Infantino carrier and it’s not even comparable to the ErgoBaby. Piper loves to be held so we wear this every single day, sure it may be more expensive but it is for good reason. It’s very comfortable, breathable, it has a sun shade built in, front and back wearable.

Travel System : With my first born I simply had a carseat and a stroller, separate. This time I really wanted to try out a travel system and I can officially say I am so thrilled we did! We opted for the  Baby Trend and it makes it so easy to get the carseat (with her inside) out of the car and just clicks onto the stroller and I don’t have to worry about removing her from the carseat in hopes she doesn’t wake up just to place her in the stroller.

Carseat Cover : See picture above. I actually found this at a consignment store for only a couple bucks. I love how this covers the baby without using a blanket and the risk of your hand slips gripping the carseat handle, plus a cute design. CarseatCanopy.com

Side-snap Onesie/Bodysuit : I found these not realizing how much I’d like them, you don’t have to pull over their head so they are so easy to take on/off and to change the diaper. We have the Carters brand but I know Skip Hop makes them as well.

Swaddle Blanket : A swaddle blanket is a must even if you have a summer baby. They just like to be wrapped tight to sleep. I recommend the Halo  brand, like the one below. They can be tucked in with arms out or in, they can’t manage to unravel, it unzips at the bottom for easy diaper changes.

Stuffed Pacifier : No, I don’t suggest going out buying a ton of pacifiers, not every child takes them. Piper likes them but has a hard time keeping a pacifier in her mouth so I gave the Wubbanub a try and surprisingly it stays in her mouth easier.

Formula Dispenser : We have the Munchkin brand, but having this on the go makes preparing a bottle so much easier! Anything to make outings and traveling with a baby easier.

Playtex VentAire Bottles : We love these bottles, when Piper drinks out of these bottles she rarely has to burb, they are great for the little tummy’s. They are very easy to clean as even the bottom comes off.

Newborn Outfits : No matter how big the baby is predicted to be, make sure you have at least a couple newborn outfits including pajamas because you just never know if you will be using them or not. And it won’t be fun if you need to run out to the store just for clothes when you’re healing.
