Happy Holidays to You

Call me crazy, but I am like 90% in Christmas mode already. Honestly, the only thing stopping me from being 100% there is the fact that we are planning for Sully’s birthday party on the 11th so I have to hold off on decorating with Santa and reindeer because it doesn’t really go with the dinosaur theme. One thing we did already do was bust out our matching Christmas PJs and snap some family photos. I just might send a Christmas card out this year, although the stack of unsent birth announcements from Elouise still haunts me a little bit. So, just in case they don’t get sent out, I’m sharing the goodness up here on the blog because the cuteness factor is on another level!

Baby Food Made Easy

I get a lot of questions about what we did and are doing to feed Sully as fas as starting solids. The answer is, there is no one answer. We have done almost every option of feeding with him. Is it a second child thing? We’ve done store bought organic baby food, pre-made food delivery services, baby led weaning (aka giving him food from my plate) and then whenever I can, I’ve made him fresh baby food. I will say that this is by far my favorite option, simply because I can control exactly what he eats and how fresh it is. It always felt really daunting though, until I discovered Raised Real.

Fun at the Farm

You guys, have I mentioned that it is my dream to basically have a tiny farm in my backyard? Yep, its true! Gimme a a few chickens, some rows of veggies, a couple of fruit trees, and I’d be a happy camper. So, its no surprise that I was in heaven when we visited Tanaka Farms this past weekend. We have been before for the adorable pumpkin patch but they offer so much more throughout the year! We hopped on a tractor tour around the farm and sampled freshly picked veggies, and then got to pick our own strawberries. Elouise was in absolute heaven and decided she needed to bend down and eat bites out of as many berries as she could. which then turned into giving them kisses, and finally after many reminders to not put her mouth on them we strolled down the rows giving them positive affirmations. I’m sure seeing toddler touching strawberries and saying “good job growing!” was equal parts strange and adorable. Anyhow, it was a fun day for the books, and E and I got to twin so that made it a zillion times better.

Every Baby Need Moccs

Okay, so I have to admit I was totally one of those people who thought spending money on certain baby items was silly. Then I had my first baby and I would have dropped any amount of money for the perfect item for her. I soon realized though that going broke was just around the corner if I kept my addiction up. So, I figured out which items were worth it, and one of those things are baby moccasins. I don’t know what exactly it is but those tiny little feet slipped into those cute little shoes just makes my heart skip a beat. Even just seeing the tiny things lying around gives me a twinge of baby fever, and I just had a baby 2 months ago for crying out loud! Like I discovered with a lot of baby items, not all brands create the same quality of product. Let me just say this once and for all for all of you skeptics out there, not all moccs are created equally. I am die hard, fan girl obsessed with Freshly Picked you guys and they just released a whole new line called “The First Pair” of super adorable, super affordable, newborn size crib moccasins. Just take a look at this little man rocking his newborn moccs and you’ll have no choice but to agree.

Mrs Seacannon Must-Haves: HALO Sleep Sack

From the moment I found out I was pregnant with Elouise I felt my maternal instincts kick in. A big part of that was the thought of keeping my then unborn baby safe. There’s so much unknown as you grow a tiny human inside of you with barely any control over what is happening. Then as my due date approached I became even more aware of my upcoming duties as a mama and how it would be my job to keep this tiny baby safe. That’s when I began researching all things newborn and baby, but it only made me more nervous. The thing that scared me the most was SIDS and while there is no surefire way to prevent it from happening, there are plenty of things you can do to lower the risk. October happens to be SIDS awareness month and I was fortunate enough to partner with HALO in their “decorate the nursery, not the crib” campaign.
