Trendy Baby Boy Clothing Haul

So it has been 11 1/2 weeks since our sweet baby boy has joined the world, and I am in utter shock at how quickly time has flown by. Having a 10, almost 11 year old, along with a 2 year old toddler has just made the time fly. Mainly because there is no time to stop if we’re being totally honest. With Roman I felt like I could indulge in every little moment and milestone because it was just him who really needed all my attention. Lincoln (my bonus son/ 10 year old) was 8 at the time and was at an age where he could self entertain, do his home work, read, play outside, etc.. but he was also only with us 4 days out of the week. Roman is now 2 and I want to make sure I give him as much attention as possible but I also lose time to watch Remi grow up. It’s one of those things as a parent that is just part of it. I am beyond blessed to have 3 beautiful boys in my life and wouldn’t change it for anything.

So let’s back track now, Remi is now almost 3 months old, and boy is he growing like a dang weed! Like seriously the boy is huge! He is over 24 inches long and getting close to 16lbs! When I first had him I didn’t think he was going to be so big but man I was wrong! The boy is in 6 month clothes, I didn’t have any left over baby clothes from Roman in this size because we have had other babies in the family and we shared clothes with them, which makes me happy to know we all can share items with each other and things aren’t going unused. So I bought Remi a few sleepers and some little sets to get him by for a while. I didn’t want to spend a whole lot on clothes since they grow so fast but I was happy to find some good deals and honestly some really cute clothes! They definitely get cuter every year. I don’t remember them being this cute when I had Roman!

I’ll start with the items from H&M!

I bought a 5 pack of Black Onsies that are made of seriously the softest material ever! You can’t go wrong with black long sleeve basics, these will literally go with anything.

I also found the cutest pair of Cream and Black Pants. I thought these would be cute paired with one of the black onesies.

On to sets! Can you believe how cute that mustard/hummus colored striped pant and top set is!? Sets are so nice because you don’t have to put much thought into an outfit, you just put it on and then add whatever “accessories” you want (shoes, beanie, paci clip, paci, bow, whatever it may be)! I knew I wanted a few sets, the black and white stripes with brown pants and collar accent just looked so clean and chic I couldn’t pass it by because I actually just ordered the perfect pair of black Mocs from http://www.anemoneandpoppy.com to pair with it! I’ll drop a pic below! (Picture is from Anemone & Poppy website)

Lastly what would a baby boy be without his perfectly sweet little baby blue outfit? This was it, it is incredibly soft. I feel like so many people sleep on H&M when it comes to baby clothes, their quality is unreal. Don’t sleep on them!!

Onsies, sleepers, pajamas, call them what you will, they are a staple in every baby’s wardrobe. They’re quick, easy, and make diaper changes efficient! Picked up a few cuties for little man, they’re all great quality and I wanted to pick patterns I knew I wouldn’t get tired of since I’m not going crazy buying a ton of clothes this time only for him to grow out of. I also grabbed some sweet bibs since it seems Remi is starting to teeth, drooling has commenced!

Buxom PillowPout Creamy Plumping Lip Powder

You heard it, a Creamy Lip Powder!!! When I first received these I didn’t know what to expect. The product has a sponge tip style applicator and at the top of the cap is product (which is where the sponge sits when it’s closed). I’ve tried products like this before and the coverage from the “lipstick” was always so sheer and disappointing. With this however, not even close to the case! I was able to get buildable full coverage with just a few swipes. The Powder once on the lips is very light weight and not thick at all which, is surprising with how much pigment you get! I’m sure we’ve all had that matte lipstick we’ve tried to build up and then it ends up just balling up and making our lips look worse than what they actually are. Never fun! Normally I always prefer to line my lips with lip liner and I’m pleased to say I noticed no problems at all with the two products together. I also am an avid gloss user, I will layer gloss on top of liquid lips and the gloss on top of the PillowPout was seamless. The product didn’t break up at all or separate even after 5 plus hours of wear in the hot Kansas humidity. PillowPout’s launch date is July 19th so I am so excited to be able to put up an early review for all of you! The color I’m wearing is Cuddle Me a medium rosey tone. I also received “Turn Me On” a beautiful Strawberry Red! If you have any other questions about the product please leave them down below or feel free to ask me on any of my other social media platforms! A big THANK YOU to Buxom Cosmetics❤️.

Roman’s first 4th of July!

 

Let me just start by saying that I can’t believe that this time last year I was pregnant anxiously waiting Roman’s arrival! It honestly has been the best 11 months of my life since he has come into our lives! Roman is almost 1, his birthday is July 26th so I was curious to see how he would do with the fireworks. Would he love them, be confused by them, or just HATE them?!

We got to spend the day at my parents house where they have a pool. We hung around outside and listened to some music while we waited for the rest of the family and some friends to come over. Once they arrived we did the usual 4th of July BBQing along with some s’mores by the fire (SOOOO good!). Naturally we had some type of firework accident …. what we thought were fountains turned out to have something bigger in them!! The first firework shot off and tipped the whole thing over aiming the fireworks right at us!! It was FANTASTIC, hahaaa! Roman was in his pack n play with Madden (our other family baby, they’re only 2 1/2 weeks apart in age!) and I can honestly say that I don’t think I’ve ever got out of my chair so quick.. I ran over and grabbed the babies like the world was ending!! I didn’t even know I had that kind of speed in me hahaha! Once that disaster was over we made sure that they were labeled FOUNTAIN. The babies loved them so much.

The next night we went to the Bradley Fair Fireworks show, but we sat at Twin Peaks outside on the patio and watched from there. Unfortunately Roman was sleepy so we had to leave early.. I was hoping he would love to see lots of big fireworks but I guess he just couldn’t hang! We will of course try again next year, with him being so close to two I’m sure he will enjoy them so much more! I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July!

Below I will leave a list of essentials that helped us with baby during a busy day like the 4th<3

  1. Pack and Play —> This is crucial! It was so convenient to have something mobile to keep him in during the evening that he could sit down in and play with his toys. With my parents having a pool and him being able to crawl and walk it was nice to not have to worry so much about if he was getting too close to the edge or not! I also love that if they’re in the grass playing you can take the bottom part of the pack and play out and use it as a play mat for the grass or even hot concrete.
  2. Bug Spray —> Being outside in general especially during the evening and by a body of water it attracts mosquitos. Lets be honest, theres nothing worse than a itchy uncomfortable baby too!
  3. Sunscreen —> If you’re going to be outside or in the water lets protect that beautiful skin, both you and baby!
  4. Floaties —> If your baby doesn’t know how to swim but loves the water try finding them a floaty they can sit in. Roman loves the water so we wanted something he could float around in and hang out with us since he isn’t big enough for arm floaties or life vests yet! Also try finding one with a hood on it that helps protect them from the sun.
  5. Tanks, Sandals, Hats, and cotton shorts —> We all love a cute baby, but make sure they’re clothes are breathable and comfortable so they don’t over heat. Roman went through 2 tank tops that day! It was a hot one!
  6. Mobile fan —> Try finding a portable fan to attach to their strollers, car seats, or pack and plays! Not only do they help keep baby cool but Roman found It so entertaining! You may also try those old school but totally awesome water bottles with the fans attached to them!

I hope these little essentials helped!

XOXO,
