I used to think it was scary to take one child grocery shopping. Then I had two.
Going to the grocery store is one of my least favorite errands. Add two kids in the mix and… yeah, not interested. But my family has to eat, so I had to figure out a way to get everyone to and from the store with minimal complaint. If you’re facing the prospect of grocery shopping with a newborn and toddler, read on for my best survival advice.
Sleep. Is there anything a new parent wants more? Sleep deprivation is real, mamas. I know, because I’m in the thick of it right now [so please pardon any typos, alright?].

After all, he’s been the center of our world for 2.5 years. I’m sure it will be challenging for him to have to share Mom and Dad’s attention. One task I’ve spent a lot of time preparing for is feeding Baby. Newborns eat a lot, and I want to be sure Colton doesn’t feel left out or forgotten during those times. So, I’ve put together this list of How to Entertain a Toddler while Breastfeeding a Newborn.
If you’ve been reading here for awhile, it’s no secret that I’ve been having a lot of fun decorating our baby girl’s nursery. I chose a monochrome color scheme and added a lot of personalized details to make the room perfect for our little lady. But, one nagging area bothering me was the flooring. We have builder basic carpet in the upstairs of our home, which doesn’t exactly scream “stylish.” We didn’t have much use for the upstairs bedrooms when we built the house 5 years ago (pre-kids!), so we went neutral. I wanted to add a fun rug to the nursery to make the floor fit in with the rest of the room’s decor. After some research on the best rugs for baby nursery, I found one that checked all my boxes!

I actually enjoy going to baby showers. Is that weird? Lots of people complain about being invited to baby showers, but I’ve always enjoyed them! I like seeing the glowing mom-to-be and admiring all the adorable baby gifts. I even like the cheesy games. But my favorite part is selecting my gift for baby! One of my favorite baby shower gift ideas is this baby shower gift basket with a laundry theme that I recently put together for a very sweet couple expecting their first child.
