Being a young mom means we met a little early, but I get to love them longer.

Here are some links to helpful posts I have done in the past :)

Cousins!

My babies are going to have cousins... well technically second cousins, but they'll be the closest thing they have to cousins since my brother will never have kids, Chris' brother is ten, and my sister is six lol.
Anyway, two of my cousins are pregnant and both with boys! One is due in December, and the other is due in April.
One is a cousin on my dad's side, and the other is a cousin on my mom's side, and they are both 21-years-old, so they are going to be young moms as well. I'm excited they are going to have babies so close to Brentley's age! I don't have any friends that have babies Brentley's age like I have friends that have kids close to Grace's age.
I'm not very close to the cousin on my dad's side because up until recently she lived an hour away, but she moved here to go to college. I'm hoping we can get together an do things after her baby is born.
I've always been pretty close to the cousin on my mom's side. I am really excited about her having a baby. Especially a boy! Our boys are only going to be about 3 and a half months apart :) Her baby shower is the at the end of this month, and I have decided to decorate him some wooden letters for his wall to spell out his name. I'm going to decorate them in colors to match his bedding. I'm going to get her some other things too, but I really think she'll like the letters.
I can't wait to meet her little man, and I can't wait to watch our little boys grow up together :)

In other news, we figured out our last gift we are going to get Brentley. This shopping cart/high chair cover!

We picked it, first off because it's cute. It also has great reviews such as easy to wash, easy to put on, and stays in place. And it has rings you can hook toys onto, and there are pockets on the back that you can put things in. Plus it was under our $30 price limit... only $25!
One of my cafemom buddies mentioned that she was getting one for her August baby, and I was thinking, "Duh! Why didn't I think of that??" Grace always tried to eat the shopping cart or high chair when she was younger, so when we got her one of these it was a life saver! Now they just need to invent side of the table covers because Grace would always try to eat the table lol.
I can't wait for Thanksgiving and Christmas!!

For Jessika...

  2. I posted a pic of the girl version for you. They don't sell them in stores around here. They may where you are, but if not you can order it online and have it shipped to your local wal-mart for free. That's what we are going to do.

  4. That is cool about your cousins. It is always nice having family with kids your kid's age. What about Chris's cousin? What is she having?

    That's a cute cart cover too. Samantha had one when she was younger that had texture stuff and toys all over it. It is a good idea and keeps them busy.
