Tried and True Baby Products: Day Three

Tried and True Baby Products: Day Three

Today’s list of baby products is courtesy of my bestie, Sarah. It has been such a treat to watch Sarah become a mommy. She is one of those instinctive mothers who just sort of knows what to do so naturally that you wonder if she isn’t secretly hiding, like, six other children in a back room somewhere that she has birthed and raised. My sweet Sadie Bug is such a happy little girl because of her awesome momma. I’ve only been a mom for three months (to beautiful Sadie!) but…

Tried and True Baby Products: Day One

Tried and True Baby Products: Day One

This week I have asked several of my friends and family to guest post in the Romper Room.  Each of the women who will be writing are moms with infants younger than one year old.  I asked each mom to send me a list of their favorite baby products they use and why.  I have done lists like this before, but I think it helps to get other viewpoints from all different kinds of moms.   Today I asked one of my favorite blogger friends to share her favorites.  Kat…

Look What I Found! Butt Paste!

Look What I Found! Butt Paste!

One of the first baby products I ever received was a big, giant tub of Boudreaux’s Butt Paste. I remember it so well. Ahhh…memories… It was at my very first shower when I was pregnant with Michael, and a girlfriend gave it to me as a joke because it had “butt paste” in the name. (You know you’ve had children too young when phrases like “butt paste” make you explode in fits of giggles!)   Michael hardly ever had diaper rash. Like, ever. In fact, I don’t think he had…

Gift Idea: Light Up the Night

Gift Idea:  Light Up the Night

Bean is going through a little phase right now where he is scared of the dark. He used to say he was scared of the dark in order to get out of going to bed. He’d call us back into his room over and over again, saying things like, “Mommy, I need the cwoset light on,” or “Daddy, I need the door open.” We caught on to those games really quickly and after a week, we quit going back into his room and instead would just stand at the top…

Sit and Stand Stroller

Sit and Stand Stroller

I’ve had a few questions lately about my Sit and Stand double stroller, so I thought I’d do a review of it for those of you on the hunt. I should state for the record that, generally speaking, I am anti-double strollers. I find them to be bulky and cumbersome. Plus, they make me very self conscious. It’s hard to look cute pushing a double stroller, in my opinion. I think I just look like a mom. It’s like driving a very large mini-van to me. Most of the time,…

Vanity and Motherhood

Vanity and Motherhood

Chris and I have just about decided that my next car is going to have to be a mini van.  I have mixed feelings about that.  I know we need it.  Right now I have a small SUV and with two car seats in the back and a stroller in the way back, there’s just no room for anything else.  When I go grocery shopping now, I have to stack my bags all around the stroller and, when I am really desperate, around the kids.  We have run out of…

Tiny Love Activity Mat

Tiny Love Activity Mat

When I was pregnant with Bean, one of the things on my baby registry check list was an activity mat. I decided not to get one because I didn’t think we’d use it any time soon. I didn’t think newborns could use an activity mat. But when Bean Man came along, I quickly realized that, like anyone else, newborns can get bored – and quickly! Who wants to just lay in a swing or bouncer seat all day long? Even being held gets old after a while. The nice thing…

Giveaway: Nugget Baby Beanies

Giveaway: Nugget Baby Beanies

When I was pregnant with Gracie, a friend from church gave me the most adorable little pink crocheted hat. I immediately packed it in my hospital bag. I thought it’d be cute for a couple little pictures in the hospital when Gracie arrived, but when I put it on Gracie, everyone went crazy for it! She looked adorable! We ended up keeping her in it for the first week of her little life. It was warm and well made, so it served a purpose, but it was also so stinking…

Etsy Day: Sew Divine

Etsy Day:  Sew Divine

You know you’re a blogger when you hear about something cool and the first thing you think is, “I can’t wait to blog about that!”  That’s totally what happened to me a couple months ago when my mom told me about this idea she had for an Etsy Shop. If you’ve read this blog for any amount of time, then you know that my mom is as creative and talented as it gets.  In fact, I’m pretty certain the reason that I can’t do creative projects to save my life…

Cool Things in Bean’s Life

Cool Things in Bean’s Life

In the past week, I have had two unexpected gifts fall into my lap for Bean Man and they both were just the coolest, so I had to share them with you! First, my Mom (a.k.a. Nana, a.k.a. The Craftiest Person I Know) made another homemade goody for Beaner.  Remember when she made that neat grocery cart cover?  Well, this next gift is just as cool…literally. Since moving to Florida, we are all adjusting to the heat and humidity.  Especially poor little Beaner, who I think has an internal thermostat…
