Baby Gear Must Haves

First off, can I just say that y’all are so amazing?! The fact that I can just jump on instagram and ask for opinions and y’all literally just flood me with the BEST ideas, just blows my mind sometimes! I never take for granted how kind y’all are and I hope you know it.

As some of you know, a few weeks ago, I asked the mothers of instagram to tell me what their must have baby items were. The nice part of compiling the information was that so many of you had the same ideas. Goes to show that when something works, it really works!

I am so excited to try some of these items because y’all it has been a hot minute since we’ve had any baby stuff around here.

The two most highly recommended items were the Rock N Play and the Dock a Tot. We used the rock n play with both Reese and Rowen and it was such a life saver! Although can we talk about why it’s called Rock n play? That sucker was intended to put the baby to SLEEP. There was zero playing going on! Thankfully now the updated version also includes vibrating and auto rocking. Yes, please. So excited for the new version!!

The dock a tot was the other most highly recommended item and so many of you said it was the perfect chill spot for the baby to feel safe and snug and that it was also good for travel in the early months of baby’s life. I can’t WAIT to try this! The reviews are amazing and I’m honestly going to take your word for it.

There were so many other items y’all raved about so I’ve included all of them below. Be sure to read the caption under the perfect for more info on why the momma’s said they loved these products!

Thanks again for all the amazing input!!!

Spring Shoe Roundup

Hey, hey!

I feel like I’ve been subtly filling your instagram feed with some of my favorite shoes purchases so far this Spring and now it’s time to pull them all together in one place. I’m going to organize this post into price points rather than shoe types. If you’re like me, a comfy shoe is important but budget is even MORE important.

Most of the shoes I’m sharing are ones that I’ve actually had on my feet so I feel like I can confidently share how good they are! Any of the ones I share that I haven’t tried, I always make sure the reviews are good for y’all.

Lerner Olivia

Hi, friends!

Finally getting around to sharing about our sweet baby girl’s name. I sort of feel like I’m living in a whirlwind of preparation for the future and trying to really soak up the present. The balance can be hard to achieve but I think the time I get most excited about the future is when I’m sitting in her nursery and dreaming about how the whole space will come together. Here are a few things we’ve started to gather.

We still have a long way to go in their but at least the worst part (painting!) is done.

I have loved the name Lerner for years now. I first heard it in a movie, even though it was actually someones last name. I just felt like it was unique and feminine without being too terribly crazy. The meaning of the name Lerner is “student” and we chose Olivia as the middle name because the biblical meaning is fruitfulness, beauty, and dignity. But it’s also representative of the olive branch that the dove returned to Noah after the flood. It was a sign of one of God’s great promises. Therefore the name can also be translated into promise. The combined  meaning is Student of God’s Promises.

While we did choose this name for her, we also chose it because what it has meant for us in these last few years. Never before in our lives have we had to be more dependent on God’s promises and how they translate into our daily lives.

When it seemed like He didn’t see us or hear us crying out for His help, we kept on going back to His word to find His promises and just rest in the truth found there. We pray that no matter what our sweet girl walks through, she will always look for the same thing!

Thank you for reading, dear friend! We so appreciate all the excitement and encouragement from all of you during this pregnancy. You guys have made this even MORE fun for us! So thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
