Baby + Toddler Favorites
Munchkin Miracle Sippy Cup: This is the coolest [affiliate link] sippy cup! Not only does it look awesome it is also spill-proof, supports natural oral development, and it comes apart easily to be cleaned. No more moldy insides with this cup! Well it gets moldy if you leave milk sitting in it and leave it on a closet shelf for over a week...not that we've done that or anything............
Parasol Co. Diapers + Wipes: We had a hard time finding diapers that were affordable, cute, and that my son wasn't allergic to. Then we found Parasol Co. They are a monthly diaper subscription service with hypoallergenic and earth-friendly products.

Comfort + Harmony Portable Swing: We got [affiliate link] this swing when our now toddler was born and it's been the best thing ever. It folds in half like a taco for easy storage, it's easy to clean, it swings on its own, and plays lullaby music (which are toddler is obsessed with turning on for his baby brother).
Mega Bloks John Deere Dump Truck: William actually got three [affiliate link] trucks like this one for his first birthday and he loves them all. Still. He keeps one as an outside toy and likes to use it in his kiddie pool, one is in the basement playroom, and one he keeps upstairs.
The Incredible Vegetables: [affiliate link] This movie has been William's favorite for as long as I can remember. We own the DVD just in case Hulu gets rid of it.
Baby Jogger City Mini Single Stroller: This has been [affiliate link] a great single stroller for us! Soon we'll need a double but this stroller is great. Its light, easy to close up and put in the trunk (I can do it with one hand), and it does well on pretty much any terrain. We lived in the city when our first son was born and the sidewalks there are terrible, it's like riding a dangerous rollercoaster but this stroller went smoothly over every bump.
Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Concealer: [affiliate link] This is a great affordable concealer. It blends easily and brightens up my under eye area.
Lush Sugar Scrub: I refer to this scrub as the magic stretch mark eraser. Seriously. It faded my stretch marks down to practically nothing, and fairly quick too!
Yoobi Spiral Notebook: I am weirdly picky about my notebooks. I'm also known for having a dozen scattered around the house. I'm a list maker. And [affiliate link] these notebooks are my favorite.
Paper Mate Inkjoy 1mm Ballpoint Pens (18ct): These are [affiliate link] my current favorite pens. They write so smoothly and the colors are vibrant and fun!
Lush No Drought Dry Shampoo: This is hands down my favorite dry shampoo. It doesn't leave my hair feeling gritty or weird and there's nothing bad in it! The smell is also much better than most dry shampoos. The only downside is that it is quite messy.
Bath & Body Works Medium Mason Jar Candles: These are my absolute favorite candles. They smell amazing, last forever, and look adorable!
KitchenAid Ultra Power Stand Mixer: I don't know what I would do without [affiliate link] my KitchenAid. I've had mine for about three and a half years no and have had no issues with it and still love it. If you're a baker like me, I highly recommend getting the pack of attachments with the whisk and dough hook. I also ended up buying an additional paddle attachment because of the amount of baking that I do, it's nice to have an extra one on hand. I also bought a second mixing bowl to accommodate my ridiculous amount of baking.
KARLSTAD Sofa: We love our Ikea sofa like a lot. We've pretty much decided we won't have anything other than Ikea sofas/arm chairs while the boys are still young, the sofas are just easy to clean, comfortable, and more affordable than most sofas to replace if the kids go crazy on it.
Swiffer Bissell SteamBoost Steam Mop Starter Kit: Our first house, in the city, had real hardwood floors and [affiliate link] this Swiffer was the best thing ever. It made those floors practically sparkle. We have laminate floors at this house and it still makes them look fantastic!
Bissell Bolt Pet 2-in-1 Lightweight Cordless Vacuum: We live in a townhouse that has three flights of stairs. Carrying our old vacuum up and down the stairs was just awful so I really didn't vacuum very often. We decided to search for something lighter and [affiliate link] this vacuum was the perfect solution. It cleans well, is a breeze to carry up and down the stairs, there's no cords for the boys to pull on, and the actual vacuum part is a removable handheld vacuum. It's great!
