We’re just a few weeks away from meeting our 3rd baby boy and I’m making sure we’re as prepared as possible with my Target Registry! No matter if it’s your first baby or not, everyone should create a registry with Target. There are so many perks included in their year of benefits program. A few of my favorites: 1- You get a free welcome kit that’s 100+ value with deals and samples. 2- You’ll receive a 15% off registry coupon to grab anything you didn’t get gifted. 3- Enjoy 1 year of free returns because with a new baby to love on, you’ll need some extra time! As a mom of almost 3, I’ve found my favorite brands over the years and they’re all available at Target! A few things that I couldn’t survive the newborn days without is a wipe warmer, Comotomo bottles for when mama needs a break from breastfeeding, and of course aquaphor to help protect that precious skin. Something new we are trying this time around though, is this baby bath seat. I’ve seen so many of my friends and favorite influencers rave about it so I’m excited to try. Don’t forget to make yourself a registry HERE with Target and take advantage of all the benefits you can as you enter this amazing new chapter! Thank you to Target for sponsoring this post, all
Target is a one stop shop for all of our daily essentials for baby Jax! They carry all the brands we love, and I really like that I can pick up everything we need without leaving the car using Target Drive Up. Some days I feel like wandering down the aisles looking at all of the fun new products, and others I just need a few things and to get on my way. I love that Target provides options for whatever I’m feeling that day! A few of these products are new to me, and others I’ve used since my first son Kai was a baby and have loved ever since. The first being Aquaphor! Everyone in my house loves Aquaphor, but it’s especially amazing on my babies super sensitive skin. I can’t go a day without this stuff! I also love these big, fluffy hooded towels. There is nothing better than snuggling a babe fresh out of the tub! The products that are new to me are the Millie Moon Diapers and Wipes. I tried them out and am loving them! The diapers are super soft and we haven’t had any issues with leaking. Pretty much everything I look for in a diaper.

It’s almost baby time! I thought it might be helpful to list out the things I’m packing to take to the hospital, and probably more importantly, the things I’m not taking. I way overpacked when I had Kai and didn’t use even half the things I took. So learn from my mistake and see what I actually used! Let’s start with what I’m not taking; Nothing for postpartum peri care. I felt great with what the hospital had for me with Kai as far as boy shorts, pads, cooling spray and tucks, so I’d rather just save my supplies for when I get home. I’m also not taking anything to do my hair besides a hair brush and elastic. I brought my straightener and curling iron with Kai and didn’t even touch it. I am taking a few makeup items- foundation, mascara, and eye brightener- but thats it. The bare minimum to make me feel semi human haha! I also brought a ton of stuff to do in labor (adult coloring book, ipad, ect.) and didn’t touch it. With the nerves and nurses coming in and out we mostly just hung out and watched TV. So this time I’m just bringing a book, and laptop to watch movies on. What’s Going In My Bag- My favorite weekender bag: I’ve had
I am so excited to show you all what we have been working on the past few months! Decorating hasn’t ever been my biggest strength, mostly because I am SO PICKY and still figuring out my style, but I am so happy with how baby #2’s nursery turned out. I was going for warm, cozy, and neutral and I think we nailed it. Now we just need him to make his arrival so we can put it to use! While we were shooting, Roman and Kai came home so they jumped in a few shots too! So happy we got to document the last of our little family of 3. My heart could explode with love for these boys!

With only a few weeks left until baby #2 makes his entrance, I figured now was the best time to share the things I couldn’t have gotten through this pregnancy without! I also want to preface this post with the disclaimer that I am not a medical professional, and ran all of these things past my Dr. before I used them, so I’d suggest you do the same to keep you and baby as safe as possible! Here are the things that made the last 9 months more comfortable for me: Outfit Details: (I sized down to the S in pullover, it runs really oversized) Must Haves: #1- Pregnancy or Body Pillow: I am a back or stomach sleeper when not pregnant, so this helped me adjust to staying on my side, and helped support my aching body as I got further along. Truly couldn’t have slept a wink without it! #2- Ginger Essential Oil: If you are experiencing morning/ all damn day sickness, this was a game changer for me. I placed a few drops on a cotton ball, threw that in a paper cup and took it with me everywhere so I could keep it up to my nose. It won’t get rid of your nausea completely, but the smell definitely takes the edge off! You can also
Thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post, all opinions are my own. I bought my first pair of UGG boots in 7th grade, and can still remember how much I loved them so vividly! I can see the outfits I wore them with, and packing them up in my suitcase to take them with me on my first visit to NYC! It’s so fun how pieces of clothing and shoes can hold so many memories to them. Ever since that first pair I have owned so many different styles and colors of UGG’s, and I’ve loved them all just as much as that very first pair! I have been such a fan of this cozy brand for so long, it feels like a dream true to get to work with them! UGG’s also make a great gift! These slippers would be so fun for a lucky lady in your life because they come in so many fun colors and patterns. I snagged the Amphora, but would have loved literally any of them! When I first saw these tiny UGG Booties at Nordstrom, I think my heart skipped a beat. Why are things 1 million times cuter when they are so little?! The Bixbee Booties also come in red, pink, and grey too so boys and girls can wear them.
