Baby wearing #1- The Ring Sling

Ring Sling: Wild Bird

For the next few blog posts I want to talk about baby wearing. Baby wearing in general is a major mama must have. At least according to this mom and babe. Hudson absolutely LOVES being worn and it is an easy way for us to get things done around the house, run errands or go on adventures! For me wearing him is so much easier and way more fun than putting him in a stroller. He is close to me, can see the world around him and can easily fall asleep for a nice cozy long nap. AND if you are feeling really adventurous, you can learn how to nurse in a sling or wrap or carrier of any kind. Hands free nursing while on the go will seriously save you, especially in the early days when baby needs to nurse more often. 

This carrier specifically is a ring sling. We just recently started using this one and absolutely love it. Besides the amazing colour, it is so convenient. You can thread your sling one time and just leave it threaded which means all you have to do is slip it on, put baby in and adjust. SO easy and fast! Then off you go on all the adventures your little hearts desire! I cannot wait for the weather to be warm so we can adventure outside with our carriers every day! Although, apparently Hudson loves the snow so theres that.

Valentines Day for Three

Hudson: Leggings c /o:Hazel and Holly// Moccasins c /o: Freshly Picked// Onesie: Old Navy
Me: Sweater: Ily Couture

*Hey guys! We are back! Had a little situation with the blog arise but all is well and here we are!*

Valentine's Day is right around the corner! Is it just me or does having a kid make time move at warp speed? Not cool. 

Last Valentine weekend we spent the relaxing away in St. George getting pampered at a spa and announcing to family that we were pregnant! Fast forward one year (Has it really already been one whole year?)...

...Holidays are a little bit different once you add a sweet little to the mix! We won't be going anywhere extravagant or staying out late, we don't live near family who can watch the babe for a quick night out, and we go with the flow of Hudson's schedule. Honestly though I like it this way! Hudson is after all, my Valentine too! 

So, we will head out for sushi after a nap and before it's time for bed. I will offer to nurse Hudson before my food comes but he will politely decline…and then be hungry once my food arrives. I'll nurse him and eat simultaneously while chatting with the hubby about work and life and most likely about Hudson. We will head home for baths and stories and snuggles. Then one of two things….Hudson will go to bed and we will catch up on our shows and eat lots of treats OR Hudson will want to party party after a short sleep and so the three of us will hang out, watch shows, play and eat treats. Then more than likely we will all be in bed by 10 pm. 

Life with a kid…it's different…but it's actually the greatest!

Happy Valentine's Weekend

The Perfect Piece For ALL Year round

There is not much that can make me happier than snuggling up in something perfectly oversized and cozy. I also love pieces that I know I can transition with me into every season! This hoodie is great this winter all cozied up on the couch and leggings and slippers with a cup of cocoa. It will be great come Spring time when the air still has that fresh chill too it. I will wear it out at night during a warm bonfire with the Summer air floating all around me and I know in the Fall I can pair it with jeans and no other layers because it will keep me nice and warm all day long! 

Basically this Baja Hoodie is all your dreams are made of when it comes to a minimalist closet! Which is everything I have been striving for lately! Out are the days of a million pieces of clothing and in come the days of minimalism especially in the closet! I cannot even begin to tell you just how much clothing I have gotten rid of lately. It is kind of insane! BUT this hoodie is staying put and I cannot wait to keep wearing it throughout every season.

Head on over to Flor De Luz Shop and check out all the different colours!
