A Big Boy Bath With Summer Infant

Bath time has always been Gavin’s favorite time of day, and I think I’m switching my favorite from nap time to bath time thanks to the My Bath Seat™ from Summer Infant. He gets to play and sit up in his comfy seat while I have an easier time bathing him with both hands free. Everyone wins!

He graduated from the sink bath and is now moving on to bigger baby things. It’s so bittersweet but also so exciting to see him growing and doing new things like rocking on all fours and sitting up. If your baby is at the same stage, the My Bath Seat™ is perfect for the transition to an adult tub. The 360 degree support allows him to be comfortable while playing. Gavin loves splashing around with both of his hands. I guess I’m not the only one who is hands free!

Bath time is not only fun for him, but it’s pretty therapeutic for me too. I love playing with Gavin while I’m bathing him. I’m glad the My Bath Seat™ frees up both of my hands for this reason! Our days are always so busy, but bath time is such great time to slow down and connect with him.

Thank you to Summer Infant for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own.

Disclosure: As a parent, you should NEVER leave baby unattended and ALWAYS keep baby within your reach.

Our Mission To Find a Christmas Tree


Our outing to find a Christmas tree sure felt like a mission with two little ones in tow (we’re still getting used to the two kid life), but we found the one! This is our first real Christmas tree! We were so excited to go real this year, and it has definitely been living up to the hype. Smells so good and feels like part of the family already. What will we do when Christmas is over?!

As you can see, Bryce was much more interested in running around than choosing a tree. I spent most of the time running after him (he’s always making sure I get my exercise haha), but I’m so excited to make this a new tradition for our little family. I’ll treasure these moments forever, and I know he will too.

We recently moved to Petaluma from Modesto for my husband’s job (they are about three hours away from each other), and we are finally settling in to our new place. We loved visiting this Christmas tree farm! It was one of the cutest ones I had ever seen. We are loving our new town so far. We are close to lots of beautiful places like San Francisco and Point Reyes, and I can’t wait to take my boys out for some fun adventures. It’s nice to get to know the area more. It feels a little bit more like home every passing day.

Here’s a glimpse of our living room, and there’s our Christmas tree in all of its glory. We still have quite a few changes to make to this space: we’re waiting for a new sofa and planning on purchasing a new rug. I will be sure to show you guys the finished product, but here’s what we have so far. Do you guys have any suggestions on where I can find the perfect rug? I look forward to hearing them!



Sweet Sound

Outfit details: Dress- Sweet Symphony Dress c/o Paint the Town // Belt- Another Line // Shoes- Preview

Music has been a love of mine ever since I can remember. I especially love when a song comes on and it takes you back to a moment. I have lots of great memories that involve music. When I was about 9 years old, my sister and I would record ourselves singing on cassettes. My favorite recording was when we sang Every Morning by Sugar Ray. There were lots of laughs and goofy memories made during those recordings. I also love coming home to my guitar after a long day at work. Such a great way to wind down and just relax.
So when I saw this dress, I felt like it was made for me! I’m a sucker for cute prints, and Paint the Town totally nailed it with this simple yet playful print. This dress is so comfortable so it will be perfect for work. I spend most of my life at work, which is why comfort is such a priority for me. I also love that it can be fancied up with a pair of heels for a night out with my sweetheart. Oh and last but definitely not least, it has pockets! A dress with pockets beats a regular ol’ dress any day! I know all of you ladies can agree with me.
Well I am off to wait for the hubby to get off of work so we can go on a dinner date. We’ll probably come home and do some puzzles since that is what we’ve been into these days. Then tomorrow I plan on doing a whole lotta nothing and maybe some thrifting. This has been such a long week so sleeping in and doing nothing is much appreciated. Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
