These things to do before baby arrives is brought to you by CariCord. All thoughts & opinions are my own.

Sam and Abby are counting down the days to the appearance of Baby Jayce.  Yesterday they shared their most recent sonogram photo with me, and let me tell you.  I am beyond excited to meet my little nephew!

Baby Jayce!

As the date gets closer (literally, actually, as the doctor moved up her due date by a few days) I have been thinking about what I was doing while waiting for Bubbles to arrive.  I shared a few of my “must do” ideas with Abby, and thought I would share them with you, too. Continue reading »

My sister-in-law’s baby shower is coming up in a little over a month and I’m getting excited.  I unfortunately won’t be able to make it back to Maine to attend so that means I need to get my DIY baby shower gifts, shopping, and decor ideas done now so I have time to mail them.

I love shopping for baby boy stuff which is a good thing considering that all the baby cousins have been boys.  And with Sam and Abby having just found out they are having a boy, too, I’ve had a better idea of all the goodies I want to pick up to send for the shower and birth.

This how to avoid being hangry shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #WhenImHungry #CollectiveBias

I’m sure you’ve seen those commercials about “You’re not you when you’re hungry”.  Around here we refer to that as being hangry, and let me tell you – hangry is real.  Like, tears-for-no-reason, wearing-your-heart-on-your-sleeve kind of real.

You wouldn't like me when I'm hungry (or hangry). So feed me a SNICKERS®! #WhenImHungry

I’ve always carried snacks and drinks for Bubbles, either in my bag or in hers.  One day as I handed her a fruit pouch while stuck in a particularly long line, I wondered why I didn’t have any snacks of my own.  I certainly could have used a little something to sooth the beast at that particular moment.

Thank you to The Motherhood and JOHNSON’S for sponsoring this post on baby bath time.

I remember the very first time I gave Bubbles a bath after bringing her home from the hospital.  I was in awe of the tiny little human that had been entrusted to me.

First bath-time with Grammie! Baby bath time rituals are fun #SoMuchMore

As Bubbles got older, she really grew to love bath time.  And so did I – watching her have fun as she played and splashed and giggled made my heart happy.  It was such a great bonding time for both of us. Continue reading »

Have you been scouting for after-Christmas sales? I popped into Walmart yesterday for a few things and noticed a bunch of pretty Coty fragrances still available. If you didn’t receive your favorite scent for Christmas, then there’s still time to pick them up.

Thank you to Lunchbox for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.
