In my last post I mentioned that Lila has been obsessed with carrying around a backpack and well… that hasn’t changed. Haha. Last night Hubs and I went out for anniversary and left Lila with my parents. My mom is so generous and is always shopping for her grandkids. She loves to spoil them with a bag of clothes/toys every time she sees them. It is super sweet and makes those first moments with my parents even more special since they get to open a present. This gem of a skirt was in her bag last night and I couldn’t stop smiling when I saw all the kitty cats. Lila thinks it’s the best thing ever so she might never take it off.
Hubs and I had a great time on our date and I woke up feeling refreshed and recharged. We had a great morning together and she kept mentioning all the chocolates my mom let her eat last night. I giggle every time she tells me about it. Also, if you are looking for a back to school backpack this leopard one is a seriously great choice. It is just so perfect for a little toddler and can hold so much. I linked it under the last photo if you want to check it out. I hope everyone has a great afternoon!
I hope you all had a good weekend. I love the weekend because it means Hubs is home and we usually use of those days to wander around town. Yesterday we ended up in South Pasadena where they host their weekly farmer’s market. We got there pretty early so we had the place to ourselves. We got pastries at a local bakery, walked around a bit, and waited/cheered when a train came by. Lila always runs straight to these rocks whenever she sees them so we let her play with them for a bit. She is getting pretty good at throwing them and Hubs loves making it their little activity.
We brought along our alphabet Chatbook which has 26 photos from my Instagram page and 26 letters. It’s a fun way to read the alphabet but also look back on a memory. One of our favorite artists, Dallas Clayton, designed it making it even more special. We let Lila keep it in her backpack which she has been obsessed with carrying around lately. I’ll link below the book template so you can check it out. It is one of the most special books in Lila’s library right now. And really who can say no to a book?
Today me and Lila are doing a craft so check back in a few days and I’ll share how it turned out. Until next time…<3

If you follow along on my InstaStories then you already know that Lila takes toys with her everywhere we go. Her fingers are always super busy trying to keep up with her imagination. I like to collect her little figurines from shows or movies she has already watched so that she knows who the characters are and can easily play with them off their storyline. In the photos is an older version of Sofia the First toys, but she also has the current version and it is her absolute favorite set. The characters are the perfect size for her little hands and each piece is great quality. Some Sofia sets, like one at the disney store, has not so pretty faces on the characters. So I appreciate the quality that went into this set.
I get so many questions about Lila’s toys and I want to start putting together more posts about what toys I get for her and why as well as which ones she actually plays with the most. Below you can scroll through all the Sofia the First that are currently available and are a great for toddler play.
I absolutely cannot sing higher praises of these travel bags. I just though some figurines into this travel bag, zip it up, and toss it in the diaper bag. There are 3 sizes available but I usually use the biggest size since it has a handle. I can snap it to the stroller, or outside of my diaper so it dangles (while in the car, not just walking around like that, haha.)
I hope this was at all helpful. Leave in the comments below what kinds of toys/toys from what movie or show you would like me to share about next. Thanks for reading!

Hi Everyone + Happy Friday!
We spent the day with my family and that means getting spoiled with treats. I am obsessed with all things blush for Lila and when I found this adorable romper from Childhoods Clothing I had to get it. It is so perfect for summer and so easy to take on and off. We are still doing diapers for Lila and I always try to find clothes that are easy to take and off while on the go.
I hope everyone has a great weekend. Treat yourself to something cold & delicious, Lila says.
