Happy 3 Months Roman!


Man oh man.. how time has flown! I can’t believe my little fox is 3 months old. He amazes me more and more every day. I mean seriously.. I never knew I could love someone so much and how much that love grows each and every second just amazes me. This little boy has taught me so much in these short 3 months already. He’s also seemed to cure me of being grossed out by anything at all anymore. I mean poop, throw up, boogers you name it, doesn’t phase me! Mamas and daddies you know what I’m talking about! I feel like it’s not bonding until they’ve atleast either pooped, peed, or thrown up on you. Kind of like a welcome to parenthood present.

Roman update: He can hold his head pretty well when sitting. He still needs assistance when sitting so I just let him sit on my lap and face out or hang his legs off my leg and place my hand on his chest and he does the rest like a big boy! He can talk like a wild boy. I mean he will sit and talk to you from wake to sleepy time! He always has stories to tell and boy are they funny! He is such a smiley happy boy and even his drooling is just too darn cute. He can blow spit bubbles and will mimick sounds you make at him. He will even mock your facial expressions! He’s learning how to hold his bottle (all on his own, I never tried to teach him he just started trying one day and has been doing so ever since). He is a pretty good sleeper also! He gets a solid 5 hours when he’s put down for the night, wakes up for a feeding and goes right back to sleep for another 4/5 hours. I could honestly keep going on and on but I feel like those are some of his biggest mile stones! He still hates tummy time and refuses to participate but man he sure can scoot across the floor with his head down. It makes me anxious because I know as soon as he wants to lift that head he will be crawling. Slow down Rome, mommy can’t handle you growing up so quick!

Shout out to all the parents and step parents out there! You’re doing amazing! It really is a wonderful thing being a mom and dad! Children can truly never have too many role models in their lives. Have a great Monday everyone!

My Amazon Baby Finds & Must Haves!

amazon baby finds

#1 Pure Enrichment Humidifier – This is amazing and great especially as the colder months are approaching. Many people including myself find the air to be a little more dry and that can be hard on your baby. You might notice stuffy noses and coughing. This is/will be your holy grail to solving the problem!

#2 Baby Beanies! – Its the perfect statement add on to your little hipsters outfit. Plus it will help keep your little one warm when the weather is brisk out.

#3 Fisher Price Play Gym –  This thing is money! My little guy loves this so much! He is starting to hit the toys and can grab them if he gets a lucky swing. He also loves to lay and watch himself in the mirror above! Plus side is the music is pretty awesome too, not annoying like some.

#4 Dr. Browns Bottles – OKAY, now THESE are AWESOME! We struggled for a long time with my son on formula and bottles. He had what we thought was really bad reflux, someone had suggested these to try and I will tell you now that we will never look back. My son used to throw up what seemed like half his bottle after feedings and now he has happy burps with none to little spit up! He is a totally different baby now!

#5 Carseat Canopy – These are perfect for those rainy or windy days when baby needs a little extra protection! I love the print on this too! People always ask where I found this when are out and about.

#6 Fisher Price Sit Me Up Positioning Seat –  We just started using this and so far its a winner! My son likes to see the world around him and this is perfect for that, plus it helps with teaching them how to hold their heads up!

#7 Pacifier Clips – Now some people love these and some don’t but I’m someone that does. Its nice to not loose and have to buy new pacifiers all the time. You can clip them to their car seats, clothes, blankets etc!

Our First Baby Free Get Away!

You guys, we finally did it! It was hard but, we did it! If the title of this post doesn’t explain what we did then let me just tell ya. We spent our first night ever away from Roman since he’s been born. Trust me, it wasn’t easy but I can honestly say it felt wonderful. I think sometimes as parents you just need some time together or away to get a little piece of “you” back. No stress of “pumping and dumping,” just enjoying that one (or two or three, whatever you please) awesome glass of beer, wine, sangria, whatever you fancy! You know what I’m talking about! Enjoying each other’s time without having to “share” it, just soaking each other up. We not only got to soak in some alone time but we also got to join some fellow Coloradans (is that what you would call them?) at Red Rocks to see Incubus.

Now Roman is only 2 1/2 months old so believe me it was hard to leave him but he got to stay with my mother & father who spoiled him so Much I’m sure he was sad to come back home! But, Let’s all be real, grandparents are the best! They spoil you with so much love and cuddles, I remember always wanting to stay with my Nana & Grandma so much that I would actually fake sick sometimes so that they had to keep me during the day while my parents worked!

Back to our adventure. We LOVE Incubus and we knew we had to go see them because they were also playing at our favorite venue, Red Rocks. We saw Dirty Heads there two years before and instantly fell in love with the place! So not only did we get a win with 1. Who was playing, 2. The Venue, we also got to eat at our favorite breakfast place in Denver (we also go to the Boulder location as well)! SNOOZE A.M.! If you have not had the guilty pleasure of trying this place do yourself a favor and do so! We ate at the Union Station location which is so cool, there are the cutest little shops inside there. Some are coffee shops, pop up bars, flower boutiques, book stores etc.! I love the Pig Train coffee bar inside there, so yummy!

Our trip was literally a drive up one day drive back the next but it was so great to spend some quality time with my husband. I can’t wait for our next short & sweet adventure!

Express Sale, 40% Off Site Wide!


I’m going to keep this short and sweet! I had so many questions from friends, family, and readers about my baby shower dress I thought I would go back and touch on this really quick! I found my dress from Express, I did have to have it altered slightly to be more Bump friendly but, it was an easy fix and I would highly reccomend this dress if you’re looking for something to wear while pregnant for an event. Trust me I remember close to the end when it was so hard to dress my baby bump comfortably and cute, this dress is both! However you can totally wear this even if you’re not pregnant (obviously right, this wasn’t made for maternity)! There were few sizes left last time I had checked but incase you have missed it Express is having 40% off their entire site so if you were thinking about grabbing it, now is your chance! Plus you can get a head start on buying all your Fall and winter denim! 

Blushing Fall Beauties 

So when we think of Fall we normally think maroon, burgundy, brown, yellow, orange, etc am I right? While I LOVE those colors (because again I’m basic when it comes to fall) people also over look one of the prettiest and softest colors of fall, Blush! You will find this color all over right now and for many great reasons! It compliments almost any skin tone and it’s the new nude! It goes with almost any outfit and can be used as a “soft” pop of color for those who are leery of being bold (it’s okay)! If you checked out my last post you saw some of my Fall items I’m loving and have ordered. Here are a couple others I’m crushing on as well!

Hello Fall! Ughhhh how you have been long awaited. There is just something so wonderful about cozy cardigans, fluffy scarves, booties, hot coffee, the leaves changing, and the brisk breezes of Fall weather. However, here in Kansas we haven’t quite been so fortunate to have that just yet except, for the early morning hours. You know, like  sweater weather right when you wake up but then by noon you deeply regret it and its back to tank top weather. Fall, you are playing us so hard! But, that doesn’t mean we can’t get a head start on fall essentials, am I right? I am so Basic when it comes to Fall, and I am A-OKAY with that! If you are curious about the sizing on the cardigans I ordered a small and they are slightly oversized which I like. If you like a more fitted cardigan I would go ahead and size down. Im pretty excited for these fall picks and I have a feeling they’re going to sell out fast!
