A Love Like No Other // Choosing To Potty Train “Late”

YES. My almost three year old is still wearing diapers. I haven’t tried to potty train her yet and the main reason being that diapers are just so easy. Once she pees, I change her, and that’s it. No matter where we are or what we are doing she can use the bathroom freely and it adds a lot of flexibility to our life. We drive a lot and something I am definitely not ready to hear is, “I have to pee” from the backseat while in traffic.

I know that potty training is right around the corner, and I’m gonna be driving around that corner reeeeeeally slow. Right now this is what is best for us, and it’s something that everyone ends up knowing how to do! If potty training late means less accidents and a quicker transition that I am all for it. My main concerns are her being as comfortable as possible and making sure I take big steps at her pace. I’m hoping to look back and know I made the best choices I knew how for both our sake.

Packing Light: City Travel Essentials With Toddler

By on December 30, 2017

 

Gear: Stroller // Changing Station // Wipes Case // Bottle Bag

My Outfit: Shoes // Sunglasses 25% off with code: CELESTEDIFF

Lila’s Outfit: Dress // Leggings // Shoes

 

The older Lila gets the less we usually need while on an outing. I try my hardest to travel light, but I admit I have a safety net knowing that I packed our car for just about every scenario. I find myself wanting to carry a diaper bag even less when my husband is out with us. Don’t get me wrong I sure do love carrying a bag but sometimes when you’re in the city it’s just easier to travel light.

Since Lila is still in diapers one thing that we can’t ever leave in the car is diapers, wipes, and a changing mat. I absolutely love this changing kit from Skip Hop. I have been using the exact system since Lila was just a baby. I love that there is a place for the essentials and easily clips to the stroller or can slip into the under basket. I am a sucker for anything blush so I just upgraded to their new blush print! I love the textured pattern on the front and it feels so good getting a new, clean one. This time I tossed the red wipes case that it came with and threw in my favorite wipe holder in it’s place. I should have done this years ago!

Aside from packing light, we also travel light with the coolest stroller ever. We have had this stroller forever but it never gets old how small it folds up. It folds up into the size of diaper bag and has a carrying strap for you to hold it by. When we park in parking structures and have to walk up the stairs my husband will carry it and I’ll carry Lila. Then we get to the car we talk about how awesome it is that we didn’t have to wait for the elevator. Ha! It’s also useful for those restaurants that aren’t exactly kid friendly and don’t know what to do with your stroller while you eat. We just fold it up and throw it under the table.

I actually get stopped almost every time we go out and people ask about my stroller. Either they know what model it is already or they’ll say ‘is that the one that folds really small?’ My husband will roll his eyes overtime we get stopped because he knows I love to talk about our stroller with strangers while we are out.

So this our travel system right now! Light, practical, and easy to transport from point a to point b. If you have any questions let me know in the comments.

Lila’s: SHIRT // SHOES // BACKPACK 

Hi Everyone!

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!

My Dress // My Shoes // My Tote // Lila’s Dress // Lila’s Shoes // Lila’s Backpack

Hi Everyone!

After a long week at home recovering surgery it felt so good to get dressed in something other than pajamas and hit the town. The second Jake got home from work we went to our local mall so that Lila could run around freely and I could get some fresh air. I wore my new dress from Olive Ave and it instantly became my new favorite. I seriously want my closet to have 20 of these dresses in different colors and patterns. It is comfortable and perfect for adventures.

Thank you to everyone for your sweet comments, messages, and emails with well wishes. Every single one of them lifted my spirit! I can’t wait to feel 100% again. My family has been a huge help this week, whether it was entertaining Lila or keeping me company. I have the best parents and siblings and it’s times like these that make me love them 100x’s more.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
