Because this was my second baby, I decided I just wanted to go with the flow of delivery. If I could have a baby without an epidural I wanted to but I wasn’t opposed to get one if I needed it. Well, I felt I needed it and this is why I didn’t end up getting one!
It’s finally February and I’ve got a lot of fun stuff planned! If you don’t keep up with my Instagram account you can click here! I talked about how we booked our tickets and rooms to go to LEGOLAAAAND for Kellan and Knox’s birthday. They don’t know yet but I’m so excited to surprise them! I’ve got Kaizers 5 month update and I am just so in love with this little boy.
Weight: 15lbs 4 oz
Height: 24 1/2 in
Sleeping Patterns: He went through a four month sleep regression. He’s waking up about 2-4 times a night. (someone send wine please!)
Eating Habits: He’s officially tried avocado and loved it! He’s still mainly nursing. We’re going to try green beans next week!
New Foods: Just avocado!
New Discoveries: He loves holding his toes and sucking on them!
Accomplishments: Kaizer has been pushing up on all fours and rocking back and fourth. He’s going to start crawling any day!
Places We’ve Been: I don’t think we’ve gone out of town at all this month!
Special Memories: Getting ready to crawl and his sweet little laugh.
A couple of weeks ago, I posted a gift guide for toddler that aren’t toys and it was actually a big hit. I had a lot of DMs, texts, and comments about what a great idea those were that I thought I would do a little stocking stuffer list because I mean come on. I still don’t want toys in the stockings either. This year we already purchased one toy for each kid, and that’s it! So what else can you give them you ask? I compiled a list of small items you can put in their stocking as well that are still going to be useful and not extremely clutterly.
Every kid needs a new pair of shoes. Mine run through theirs like they’re going out of style so they get new shoes at least every six months. (and sometimes every month in between.)
For some reason my kids love getting sunglasses but ALWAYS, with out fail, break them! So I always have extra on hand and they love them!
A fun or silly pair of socks
My boys love those crazy socks! They think it’s so funny to see dogs on their toes and bulldozers pushing dirt.
I know, I know..who really wants a toothbrush for christmas! But what if you got a fun one that was their favorite character that literally had all of the bells and whistles that made them excited to brush their teeth.
This sounds funky but my kids love wearing theirs. It also is perfect to keep next to their bed if the power ever goes out they have their own light to get around.
We call these “Kellans School Work”. Tracing the letters and numbers is something he’s really in to right now. He loves practicing his school work and learning
My kids love taking their vitamins everyday. They actually remind me that they need them! Getting a new one in their stocking is the perfect idea and it’s practical that I know they will love!
We literally only take nice family photos at Christmas time! Please, tell me I’m not the only one! Since I upgraded my camera last week, I was so excited to try this puppy out. It seriously did not disappoint. Can you believe that I took all of these with just a click of a button from in front of the camera!?
I never thought I would be the parent that liked my kids to wear matching clothes but the secret is out… I LOVE IT! Especially having all of one gender I can’t help but look at all of the matching outfits out there.
Getting new pair of Christmas pajamas is of course our favorites and this year is no different, I’ve been on the hunt for the cutest matching pjs for all of my boys! The hard part is, with Kaizer being a new baby and Kellan already wearing 4T clothes it’s hard to find them ALL the same ones. So I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite ones that I can’t get enough of! Some are even parent and kid pjs!!
I don’t know about you but I hate when the kids get toys! Birthday, Christmas, just because grandma and grandpa felt like they needed it. They love getting them and after about a month, they’re broken, pieces are missing, and they are not played with again. Then they just sit there…in the toy box…not being played with. Toys end up getting pulled out and left on the floor because nobody wants to play with them and I end up having to clean up this insane mess that wasn’t even used! It’s just a huge cycle that I hate having to go through.
