Happy 2nd Birthday Ozzybear!

A special thank you to Kasmira Kit for taking these fabulous family photos for us. http://www.kasmirakit.com/photography

I can’t believe my “last baby” (I have my tubes tied) is turning TWO. Time can be such an asshole! He has been going through a lot, mainly struggling to find his words. He’s started Speech Therapy and will soon begin Occupational Therapy and an evaluation with a Psychologist – just like his big brother Jude once did. We are so proud of our little buddy and I can’t wait to see how well he does with this help in 2017.

Each of my children teach me something new about myself each day that passes. A different lesson. A different trial of my patience and time management. Ozzy brings sunshine into our lives as bright as his hair. He loves to make us laugh. He loves to play pranks on me, play peek-a-boo and chase. He is obsessed with Trotro, Mickey Mouse, Dinosaurs, Cars, bubbles, playing outside and most importantly chasing the Bigs.

When Jude & Ruby are away at school, he often walks around the house yelling (just like Mama) “JUUUU!” and “RUUUUU!” hoping they are simply playing a prolonged game of hide and seek with him. When it’s time to go pick them up he claps his hands with excitement and sometimes jumps.

Last Baby is my first baby to really care about his pacifier and have comfort blankies. People say he looks just like Michael but when he’s making smug little sassy faces, I think he looks just like me.

My favorite pastime is forcing him to sit on my lap and torturing him with kisses and hugs. He pretends he hates it then as soon as I stop he asks for more. He’s just funny like that.  He is so brave – possibly too much so. He climbs the highest slide at the park just like all the big kids with a devilish grin of determination. He thinks it’s SO funny to open and close my bedroom door, poking his sweet little face in and out of the door frame. I could go on forever with all the ways this baby bring me joy. His smile makes my heart skip a beat.

We hadn’t really had a professional family photo shoot of the five of us since Ozzybear was born, so I was super thankful for these gorgeous images from Kasmira Kit. Below are some of our favorites.

Thank you Walgreens & Well BeginningsTM  for sponsoring this post and inviting us to your fabulous party!

My Christmas tree is already up. Yes, I’m one of those people. Fall is my favorite time of year and Christmas is one of my absolute favorite days of the year! I was so excited and honored that Ozzybear and I were invited to the Walgreens Well Beginnings Live Event last week! It was so beautiful and well done I wanted to rush home and decorate my house immediately.

See what I mean? So cute! It was Ozzy’s first Christmas party so I figured it was only right he get cookies and chocolate. I like living carb-vicariously.

Next, I checked out the Well Beginnings diapers and wipes! I noted immediately that the Well Beginnings diapers are super high quality. In fact, Good Housekeeping tested Well Beginnings as being more absorbent than Huggies. Also, they are very competitively priced, Well Beginnings are a value alternative to big brands. And, now they have a new everyday low price of $6.99 for a package of diapers. Save your money for more important things for your baby! Like Santa PJS and more Christmas party decor!

Whether it’s your baby’s first Christmas party or first Thanksgiving, (Walgreens exclusive) Well BeginningsTM  knows it’s all about keeping your baby happy and healthy. That’s why they have researched the ingredients in their baby products to ensure each meets the highest quality standards. From premium-quality diapers to clinically tested, hypoallergenic baby shampoo and wipes, Well BeginningsTM essential baby care items have you covered.

Cienta Shoes for Kids!

 image image imageimage image My love for Cienta Shoes for kids has never been a secret. Why? 1. They’re adorable 2. They’re Eco-friendly 3. They’re machine washable. Anything I can put into a machine and it comes out clean? I like.

For over 30 years, Cienta has been specializing in creating high-quality vulcanized footwear for children. Founded in 1982, the family-owned company Calzados Cienta started the kids’ canvas and slipper brand with generations worth of expertise in shoe-making.

The factory is located near the wine region of La Rioja in Spain, a region that is deeply rooted in the process of vulcanizing natural rubber, and has been the only manufacturing source of Cienta shoes.

Dedicated to promoting the natural and correct development of children’s feet, the entire production and design process of Cienta is centered on quality and comfort, making use of only natural materials and the most advanced technology.

Celebrating my #Crazy8 Kids Style!

My kids are crazy. I think all kids are crazy though, right? I’m going to go with that. I love their crazy energy though! Since birth my children have allowed me to pretty much style them however I please, no questions asked. Jude did oppose a bowtie in his toddlerhood here or there but for the most part, I think they’re pretty immune to my torturing them.

That said, I try to style them in colors, themes, patterns I know they will enjoy. Ruby is a girl after my own heart, she loves glitter, pink, flowers, prints, the works. Jude is super into hats and accessories. As soon as the sunglasses go on, he starts making pouty “blue steel” faces. It cracks me up. Of course Ozzy still has no choice and will frankly be stuffed into whatever I say, but hes going to scream and try to run away from me regardless the clothing item. Its part of my cardio, getting him dressed.

If you’ve never shopped with Crazy8, they have adorable stuff! If you have shopped with them then you already know what I’m talking about.  All of the kiddos were so excited when their packages arrived from Crazy8 with new and exciting clothes!
