ABC What I Can Be! Personalized Book from I See Me!

I received this book from I See Me! as a promotional item. This is not a sponsored review. All opinions are 100% my own. 

I See Me Personalized Book

We are so lucky, Clay got an ABC What I Can Be! Personalized Book from I See Me! It is such a neat book, it shares all the things that Clay could be when he grows up, and follows along the alphabet! Plus in the front of the book you can add a picture of your child, along with date of birth and full name and they will include that! It really is such a personalized book, and the quality is outstanding! I See Me! also carries many other fun personalized items like coloring books, stickers, placemats and more. Plus they are celebrating the 15th Year with a special edition  of our very first book…  15th Anniversary Edition of My Very Own Name. 

ABC What Can I Be

When I opened the book up and Clay first saw the picture of him on the inside he smiled! He is really into seeing pictures of himself right now, along with reading books! I thought this would be perfect, and through the years he will grow to love the book more and more! 

On each page they really do great on personalizing the book. It will have his name somewhere on a picture. For example it can show a garden and it will say Clay’s garden in the picture and so on. I really think the creativity behind I See Me! books are just outstanding!

I See Me!

Plus I See Me! also carries other personalized products, and it is perfect for Back to School shopping! Grab a personalized lunch box, Back to School, activity books and more. They really have a nice selection of items to fit your child’s personality!

Out and About – Family Picnic Fun! #jjcolespringstyle

Family Time Today – We went to Vet’s Park To Enjoy Lunch! 

I received the tote and blanket from JJ Cole, as promotional items courtesy of JJ Cole. This is not a sponsored review. All opinions are 100% my own. 

family picnic

Today we made our way out to Vet’s Park for a family picnic! The weather has been extremely hot lately so we haven’t been doing to many outdoor activities, but the weather wasn’t as hot this morning so we thought to head over and have a little family picnic in the park!

geeseAt Vet’s park they have a little pond, and they have tons of geese that seem to live on it, so it is always fun getting to watch the geese, and see the beautiful scenery! The park even has a little sandy beach area for volleyball, and you can walk all the way around the whole pond! We love to come here, feed the fish and geese, and just enjoy nature! We would come here a lot when I was pregnant with Clay, so it is always fun coming back!

Picnic

JJ Cole sent us the  Aqua Radian Bucket Tote and the Citrus Breeze Outdoor Blanket, that works perfectly for a good family picnic. The outdoor mat/blanket is great for any occasion. You can lay it out to protect you from grass or dirt. It is a really nice durable fabric, and is soft to sit on. It is 5 ft x 7 ft when it is layed out. The inner lining is perfect, if you have a spill you can easily wipe clean! It is water-resistant, which for anyone with kids knows how important that is!

#jjcolespringstyle

It does fold up really easily, and has a strap so you can easily carry it like a bag, which is great for hauling it around! When you have a child, you know how much stuff you need for one simple trip. Diapers, food, snacks, toys, extra clothes, and the list goes on. Then if you are having a picnic like us, we got to pack for ourselves as well! Having something that folds up and easy to carry is a must for me anymore.

The bucket tote, is very roomy! It offers 13 pockets total, so you can fit a lot of things in this tote! It has a really fun print on the outside that is very stylish, and I get comments on how pretty my tote is when I wear it! It is very easy-to-clean, and is water resistant canvas! It does include stroller grips, which in the one picture you can see I am using them. It makes it to wear you can clip the bag onto your stroller so you don’t have to carry it on your shoulder! It makes it super handy. I am beyond in love with this tote!

Family Time

We truly had such a fun day, and after we did a little shopping! JJ Cole made our family picnic a little easier, and I am very thankful for this brand. We have bought products from them in the past, and it is always exceptional quality, and of course very stylish! I absolutely love their fun prints they use, and I highly recommend their products to family and friends!

Newborn Parenting Advice + Dreft Giveaway #Amazinghood

Some Simple Newborn Parenting Advice from a First Time Mom! 

This post and giveaway were made possible by iConnect and Dreft. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine

newborn parenting advice

I am a first time mom, to my sweet little guy Clay! He just turned 6 months old on the 20th of this last month! The first few months were a complete blur from sleep exhaustion and just all the changes that took place. Our little guy spent a whole week in the NICU as he was diagnosed with Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia, he is a salt waster. It can be life threatening, and we almost lost him. He is now doing extremely well and thriving! We are truly blessed to have this little man in our lives!

I thought it would be fun to share some newborn parenting advice to help all you first time parents out! There were so many things I had to learn along the way, it was crazy!

Tips for First Time Parents 

Learn as You Go: I thought reading all the parenting books out there would help me know it all, but there is so much you have to learn as you go. Every child is different so what works for some parents may not work for your baby. So, take a deep breath and you will make it through!!! I promise!

Accept Help: Have you ever heard that saying, it takes a village to raise a child…. that is no joke!! They are a lot of work, especially the first few months. You have all the feedings around the clock, diaper duty, and regular household chores. Accept help from loved ones, it truly will save you! Don’t try and be a hero!

Freeze Meals: This is one I say is a must. You think it only takes a short time to whip up a meal, but when you are holding a newborn and trying to work around naps and feedings you have little to no time. Get some freezer meals ready! It helps so much! I did like lasagna, sausage balls, hot pockets and such. Also if you want buy quick meals that take little to no time.  My little guy made me hold him with every nap, he hated sleeping alone and still does.

Dreft DetergentDreft Detergent: A lot of my niece and nephews suffered from eczema really bad, so that was a big advice tip I received! Buy Dreft for the baby clothes and such! It is the number 1 detergent choice from pediatricians and dermatologist! Their skin is so sensitive, you really have to protect it! As babies grow and develop, laundry needs change for both little ones and their families, which is why Dreft introduced a line of laundry products that are specially designed for different stages of babyhood.

Just Breath: If you are not blessed with a perfectly happy baby non-stop, you might get super overwhelmed at times. I remember days, Clay would  be screaming for hours, as he had colic. I tried everything I found on the web and nothing helped, and I just sobbed. In those moments take a few deep breaths, it will get better and soon he/she will stop crying and it will get better. Or if you feel beyond exhausted, breath because in a few months they won’t eat as often, sleep longer, and you will begin to feel less like a zombie!

Do What You Can: Make sure not to over do it. Having a baby is super hard on your body, and your wore out just from that. Leave the dusting and vacuuming and just rest when you can. Don’t feel everything has to be in tip top shape. People will understand, any parent out there knows how hard it can be.

Zip Up Pajamas: These are my favorite for those late night diaper changes. They are so quick, they beat buttoning up the whole bottom each time. Clay screamed his head off, so being able to unzip and re-zip quickly was a lifesaver!

Monster Truck Wall Sticker For Clay’s Room!

Monster Truck Wall Sticker To Be Like Daddymonster truck wall sticker

Adam competes in mud runs during the Spring and Summer months and he has a Jimmy he races, so when I saw this monster truck wall sticker from Myloview.com! I knew he had to have it! It comes in a nice roll container, so you unroll and stick it to the wall pretty quickly! We had this sticker up in probably less than five minutes! It is 40×40 in size, so pretty good size! The quality is really nice, you just have to be careful when trying to get air bubbles out so you don’t scratch the sticker ink away.

Hoisington Mud Run 2013 009

Adam’s truck is on the left, it is a GMC Jimmy. He has a really souped up motor in it, and it flies through the mud. It may not be a beauty to look at but it flies, don’t be fooled! This is a hobby he loves to do, and is looking forward to when Clay gets older to have him watch him race, and possibly race himself one day!

MyTruck

We put this up by his crib! When he was born his theme was deer and nature, but I think we will be transitioning over to monster trucks soon! I love the mud flings in the sticker, it really makes it fun!

Myloview.com specializes in printing wall murals, posters, wall stickers and prints on canvas (both designed by us and on demand- by our clients)! They have a wide range of stickers, murals, and such to choose from. It can fit the styles of so many, which is really nice. You can get designs to cover your whole wall, or a simple sticker like me.
