    5 REASONS WHY I LOVE THE CITY SELECT LUX | MOTHERHOOD

    A few years (whoa, that sounds weird haha) ago, I blogged a review on the Baby Jogger City Select Stroller and why we loved it for twins… to this day, it is still one of my most visited post and gets so much traffic from pinterest and google… It seems a lot of people are still wondering which double tandem stroller will best suit their needs. I recently upgraded to the newest version of the Baby Jogger City Select,…

    A recap of our halloween festivities this year and our DIY costume

      HAPPY HALLOWEEN | A DIY COSTUME

      HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I hope you all had a fabulous time and didn’t suffer too hard from the post-halloween candy hangover. We had a blast trick or treating in our DIY costume with our friends this year and I was so surprised at how good the babes did! They went door to door saying trick or treat and always said their ‘thank you’s’ after each house. It was definitely a proud mama moment.
      We DIY’ed costumes this year for two reasons……

      An update on life with twins, almost 3 years old!

        TWIN TALK | LIFE LATELY

        I was reading over a few past blog posts and realized it’s been quite some time since we did a recap on life with twins. If I could use one word to describe life with almost three year old twins, it would be BUSY! These two are constantly on the move from sun up to sun down. They’ve even started refusing to nap (on occasion) and while it’s exhausting, seeing their personalities shine through and their independence grow is…

        KEEPING COOL WITH BABY K'TAN | A REVIEW | THOUGHTSBYB.COM

          KEEPING COOL WITH BABY K’TAN

          We all know that I love a good multi use product… especially an item that can grow with your family or kids so when I got the opportunity to test out the new Baby Ktan swaddle/toddler blanket, I was super excited. This swaddle blanket can serve as a swaddle for infants, blanket for toddlers, nursing cover for mamas and a stroller cover! It’s also 100% all natural cotton with no added chemicals! I’m already a big fan of Baby…

          Potty Training tips for twins with Baby Bjorn

            POTTY TRAINING WITH BABY BJORN

            June is National Potty Training month so I thought it would be a great time to recap our adventures in Potty training and update on how it’s going now…
            Back in March I decided to delve into potty training. I wanted the babes potty trained before the summer and Ry, who mostly plays “good cop” around here, was gone for a week so it seemed like the perfect time to take on the task. Potty training twins, on my own,…

              COVERED UP | A MAMA BEACH GUIDE

              We’re in the midst of a SoCal heatwave which has landed us at the beach or near the water almost every day over the past week and weekend. With every trip to the beach, I’m learning all about what we truly need to tote around. Our first beach trip last summer consisted of a loaded down double stroller, baby wearing so I could fit more into the stroller, most of which we didn’t even touch. This summer I’m taking…

              The day I lost my daughter in a public setting and learned a valuable lesson in motherhood

                LOST | LESSONS IN MOTHERHOOD

                Yesterday I lost Everly.
                That still sounds so awful, even to type… or text and I can’t even bear to speak it.
                I lost her, I lost sight of her for a split second and then lost her, couldn’t find her.. lost, completely lost. I lost her and could’ve lost her forever… the thought process was strong, it was innate, and it was all consuming, she’s gone.
                After 5 minutes of shear panic, she was found, and to the mama who brought…
