You know those moments when you just need your tot to sit still for a little bit, but you don’t want them watching endless (and super weird) youtube videos? I’ve had the worst luck with apps I’ve downloaded that just don’t keep Walt’s attention for very long, which results in him wanting to get on Youtube. Well, I’ve finally found an app that keeps his attention perfectly! KidloLand is my new favorite app because it is educational and covers so many different subjects, while also engaging Walt and keeping his attention.
I’ve had our DockATot for about a month now, and I’m growing to love it more each day. We have the Deluxe+ in Pristine White. This DockATot is the stage one dock meant for ages 0-8 months. It’s truly so perfect for babies. Oliver is completely protected in it and I feel safe leaving the room for a minute while he’s in it, which hasn’t been the case with some other products I’ve tried. It’s lightweight, and it has a handle on the end which makes porting it around the house easy (always a plus when carrying a baby). The cover zips on and off and it is machine washable.
I recently got a Lorena Canals rug after eyeing them for quite a while. I saw them all over Instagram and finally decided to try one out. I was instantly attracted to them because they are MACHINE WASHABLE. How perfect is that?? People always ask me how I keep my house so clean with all the white, but it really is quite easy. Machine washable rugs just make that job a little bit easier though with my “schnack” obsessed tot!
I started thinking about Walt’s first birthday party before he was even born. When we were in Africa we decided we were ready to become parents. We had such a peace about it and knew the time was right. So, what better theme for a first birthday party than a Safari? Of course, I went straight to Pinterest for some inspiration. I found a bunch of great DIY ideas for his party!
We decided to tackle potty training Walt when Ollie was a month old. Most people thought we were crazy. Honestly, I thought we were too! It was a L O N G hard week, but once he got it, he got it. We used this blog post a friend of ours told us about The Two-Day Method of Potty Training as a guideline. We settled on a weekend when we didn’t have anything scheduled and we went for it.
