I can’t believe that we are just a week away from becoming a family of four! Items on my to do list are starting to be prioritized as I realize that some of them probably won’t happen in the next few days.
Our friends at BabbleBoxx sent us a box of must-have items for new moms, and I’m excited to use these items with both Emmett and Baby Girl.
One of Emmett’s favorite toys when he was an infant was his Baby Banana Brush. When we started making a list of items that we needed for baby girl, her own banana brush was immediately put onto the list.
I was excited to find out that the Baby Banana brand had more than just the banana! I’m pretty sure that this Lil’ Squish Jellyfish is going to become a diaper bag essential.
The head of the jellyfish offers a soothing rattle and the tentacles are easy for babies to grab and use as a teether.
Assuming that baby girl takes after my skin type more than Brad’s she’s probably going to be at least somewhat sensitive. I’ve been taking this into account as I get her clothes pre-washed and set up her diaper changing area.
NOLEO is a 3-in-1 diaper care product that cleans, moisturizes, and protects each diaper change. It features 5 ingredients – Limewater, Sunflower Oil, Olive Oil, Glyceryl Stearate, and Beeswax. A pump of the cleaner onto a dry cotton wipe is all that’s needed to clean up a diaper change and leave behind a protective barrier on the skin.
Hoppy & Poppie PinkCheeks is an adorable story that focuses on teaching children emotional intelligence. The board book is perfect for the baby and toddler age as they learn to be gentle with books.
The Hoppy & Poppie PinkCheeks Giftbox features two board books, plush characters, silicone EQ wristbands, and a character blanket to really engage with the story. Use FRIEND10 for 10% of any purchase.
One of my goals during the past 18 months has been working on my skin. Before everything went down, I would rarely take my makeup off before bed and my morning routine involved simply adding some moisturizer after the shower.
Now that I’m not commuting, I have rarely worn makeup, and take the time for a multi-step skin care regimen each morning and evening. Recently, I have added in Vichy LiftActiv to my routine. I have especially enjoyed the Vichy LiftActiv Vitamin C Serum for evening out my skin tone. I’m looking forward to trying out the Vichy LiftActiv Peptide-C Ampoule Serum as well.
One thing I learned when taking Emmett out and about was that pockets are everything when it comes to organizing. When it comes to pockets, the Lug Puddle Jumper Duffel bag delivers! The water-repellent exterior is also essential because babies and toddlers are messy. In addition to keeping kid stuff organized, the Puddle Jumper Duffel also works as a work bag with the padded sleeve that can hold up to a 15″ laptop.
Now through August 31st, you can receive 20% off of a $50+ purchase using promo code KENDRA20. There are lots of fun prints to choose from, so you are sure to find one that matches your style!
I’m pretty sure that there is nothing better than the smell of a freshly washed baby. Baby Magic has been a parental favorite for over 65 years, and has been developed with sensitive baby skin in mind.
The Baby Magic Cleansing Gel is a tear-free solution that moisturizes while it cleans. The Baby Magic Baby Lotion adds vitamins and aloe for even more hydration and soothing of dry skin. I can’t wait to experience the “new baby” smell all over again.
By next week our life will be completely different. I’m looking forward to the new adventures, and hoping that Emmett enjoys being a big brother and continues to give her kisses once she is here!
