1. Baby Essentials: Munchkin Brand

    I always get asked by readers what my baby essentials are, so today I wanted to recap a few pieces that are absolute staples to the FH Family as of late. Starting with Reese who is now just shy of twenty two months… Reese loves to say “Reese do it” ie. she wants to be Miss Independent and do everything like mommy and daddy. It all started when she kept asking me for a drink of my water. Terrified because my drink was in a large glass, I didn’t want her to break the glass not to mention drench herself in the process. One of my girlfriends told me about the Miracle 360 cup by Munchkin which is the perfect ‘transition’ cup for these little guys. It looks like a cup to them but is spill-proof for us. Most importantly it lets her feel independent while simultaneously learning how to use it properly. Moms exiting bottles / sippy cup phase and entering cups phase, this is a must.

    Now on to the really glamorous… the potty! We are not ready to truly potty train Reese yet, but we decided it was time to buy one and just place it alongside ours so if she gets the inkling to test it out, she can {not to mention for when it is ‘time’ it won’t feel so forced}. We have yet to see real progress since it arrived a week ago, but I am looking forward to the end result! The Arm & Hammer Natural Fit Potty we got has the added perk of coming with the odor-eliminating power of baking soda, keeping it smelling fresh… gosh how I am counting down the minutes until I can toss my diaper pail. Moms out there with potty-training advice, I am all ears!!

    Now on to Baby Brooks who is five and a half months, seriously I cannot believe it! He is rolling and smiling and laughing up a storm. But of course, his favorite thing of all is eating. He now actually reacts {kicking his legs excitedly} when he sees me preparing his LATCH Bottle – it’s incredible! So while he loves to eat constantly, it means I am constantly cleaning! My go-to brush is my Munchkin Bottle Brush because its shape and layers of bristles cut cleaning time in half. Plus at the end of the brush there is a hidden compartment containing an even smaller brush for cleaning your bottle caps and nipples.

    I must say that the first three months of having two under two was tough. Neither kid could change their own diaper, get into their own bed, and both wanted {or needed} to be carried. But since passing the three month mark, each day has gotten more fun and we are just loving our family of four. You can see from our Halloween pics that we just try and laugh off the hard times and cherish the good ones. I love having baby products that I can trust with these babes and Munchkin brand products are definitely on that list!

  3. FHB STYLE: Baby Fall Knits

    With that Fall chill in the air, I am all about layering up my little one so she is warm and snug, because no chilly day is going to keep us from strolling through the park! For today’s Fall fashion look, I layered an Old Navy crew-neck “LOVE” sweater {totally holiday festive} over a chambray button-down shirt. Not visible is the fitted ribbed tank I also layered beneath – yes, I am that paranoid mom who always thinks it’s really cold! Then, I paired this look back to Old Navy black skinny jeans and adorable Old Navy ankle boots {similar here}. The finishing touch – a red bow to match the heart in her sweater. Reese is ready for a good rumble in those Fall leaves!
