    Toddler Bed Transition with Dockatot

    We decided it was time to transition Sawyer to a toddler bed around the same time we brought Oliver home. Because we’re crazy, of course.

    But, it was so easy. The very first night he did not get out of bed once. Not once. And he slept all the way through the night! We thought it might be a crazy fluke but since then, he still never gets out of bed at night! It’s amazing, I thought it was going to be such a battle, but it wasn’t at all. Our secret?

    For The Zombie Parents: The Ninja Coffee Bar

    We have a 3 week old so we’re officially getting zero sleep. My husband and I have a little agreement. I do all of Oliver’s nighttime feedings, and he gets up with Sawyer, toddler extraordinaire, at the crack of dawn. So I’m sleeping in shorter increments, but he’s getting up earlier. At the end of the day, we’re both getting about the same amount of sleep.

    Close to none.

    I’ve never been much of a coffee drinker. I really only like coffee when it’s cold brew or iced which can be really hard to make at home. But now that we have a newborn again I need the caffeine in an extreme way if I’m going to get through my day. So that means either suck it up and drink coffee I don’t love, or find out how to make iced coffee work at home.

    A Coming Home Outfit

    Disclaimer: I received these products in exchange fore review. All opinions are my own. Visit my Disclaimer Page for more information.

    Since Sawyer came early, there were a few things I never got to do and wasn’t prepared for. We didn’t have the nursery done, we didn’t have a coming home outfit for him, we didn’t even have hospital bags packed. So with this baby, I knew I needed to be more prepared!

    Well, Oliver came even earlier than Sawyer did and while there are still plenty of things that need to be done, we were at least slightly more prepared. I did at least have the hospital bags packed which really was lucky, given I had only packed them a week before. I had all the newborn clothes unpacked, I had all the gear I needed, and I had a coming home outfit for him.

    Maximize Your Child’s Education with Snapology (+ a Giveaway!)

    There’s not much that’s more important than your child’s education. We all want to make sure our children learn and thrive and are given the best opportunities possible. Unfortunately, with today’s economy, budget cuts in school districts are limiting children’s education more and more.

    I watch Sawyer learn everyday and I am amazed. At only 2 years old he absorbs information like a sponge. He learns new words and phrases all the time. He remembers faces, names, places, and more. He knows animal noises, colors, shapes, and more words than I can count. He is able to mimick our language and knows a new word daily. Watching him learn is absolutely thrilling and I hope he continues to thrive for the rest of his childhood.

    Ah, Summer.

    My absolute favorite time of year. I made it a goal to make sure that we had fun and relaxed this summer. We spent all Winter completely cooped up, not only due to the weather, but due to one of our cars being out of commission, we literally hardly ever left the house! That took a serious toll on me both mentally and emotionally. It’s no good for your mental health to be inside all day! Now that we have another car for a little while and the weather is great, I really want to make sure we are active and outdoors!

    Hair Extensions for Beginners with Hidden Crown Hair

    Disclaimer: This post is in collaboration with Hidden Crown Hair. All opinions are my own. Please visit my disclaimer page for more information.

    I’ve always wanted long mermaid hair, but my hair had other plans. Growing up, my hair was a huge hassle. I naturally had very coarse and curly hair as a kid. I started straightening it every day when I was only 11 years old. All that straightening really took a toll on it and by the time I was 15, my hair was severely broken and damaged and wouldn’t grow at all.

    We tried everything. Deep conditioning treatments, relaxers, trimming it every few weeks, never trimming it, washing it more, washing it less, coloring it less, expensive oils, seeing different stylists and specialists. Nothing made my hair better.
