Products I wish I had baby 1 and 2

I have to talk about two of the items in these pictures. Two items I didn't have with the other 2 kids and I wish I would have! It is always interesting prepping for your 3rd child. In fact not a lot of prep goes into it because usually you have everything you need. This time around I knew I wanted a Dock A Tot and an Ollie swaddle from The Ollie World. After reading many reviews on both items both companies were nice enough to send me a swaddle and a Dock A Tot. Let me tell you that neither one disappoint. I love that Rome has a place of his own to snuggle up and nap. I wish so bad I would have had a Dock A Tot for my other kids. It is easy to bring a long creating a familiar resting place for my baby. I am also huge on swaddling. I always hesitate at first and think the babies don't like it but my kids have all slept better when they are swaddled. I love that he can't break out of the Ollie swaddle. The material is both soft and cute! I mean look at the color of it. I would highly recommend both these items! Coming from a mama of 3 babies in 3 years I feel like I have tried all the baby products and these are good! Stay tuned for a post about how I survive grocery shopping with 3 kids by myself.


Christmas Outfits

Be still my heart!! We went for more of a subtle Christmas outfit this year and oh my goodness they looked SO adorable! What a fun time of year with these two. We spent our Christmas Eve at Grandma and Grandpa Hopkins eating so much food and opening a few gifts! We then headed home to have our own Christmas Eve as a family in our home, Krew and Henley exchanged gifts and got their Christmas jammies. It was so magical!! We made cookies, set them out, and put the kids in bed! Christmas morning we opened gifts (the kids were spoiled and so was I) and headed off to Grandma and Grandpa Hopkins for a quick stop before heading up to Logan. It was a risky trip. I was just a couple weeks away from my due date but I figured there was a hospital in Logan and all along the highway so if I went into labor we would be fine! It was worth the time spent with family. Christmas with kids is seriously the most amazing thing ever, I was possibly more excited than them and seeing their faces light up made me want to cry! Krew was so excited that Santa ate all the cookies and drank all the milk! SO CUTE!! Henley is still a little small but she had so much fun and loved all her gifts! 


Christmas Jammies & Santa

The first week in December the kiddos got their Christmas themed jammies and we went and visited Santa!
