Hunter || 3 Months


3 months.

Weight: Around 14lbs. 

Height: not sure yet

Clothes Size: Still fitting into those 0-3 month clothes but they're getting a little sung! I think we will go shopping for some 3-6 month clothes soon!

Milestones: Sleeping in his crib full time now! He has rolled from tummy to back, he's standing with help, he can put his wubb-a-num back into his mouth! 

Food: Hunter is still eating 4-4.5 oz. every 3 hours.

Sleeping: He is sleeping 9-10 hours at night now! HALLELUJAH! We still do an hour and a half nap between each feeding. We follow Babywise and it has been wonderful. 

Favorite Activities: He loves his Kick and Play gym. He has become a tad bit more of a momma's boy so I have noticed he likes to be held a little more and be worn in his boba wrap. 

Dislikes: The rock and play! haha He doesn't really like napping in it now. He really only gets upset when you take the bottle away to burp halfway through and when he gets tired! 


Things I don't want to forget: We spent our first Valentine's day as a family together this month, Hunter started teething a little bit and he had a major growth spurt and mental leap.

I almost gave up on our schedule because I was trying to be a perfectionist...NOTE TO SELF: You're doing just fine, Hunter is a great baby and 1 day off his routine will not hurt him ;) 

I couldn't believe how many more skills he picked up just in the last week! He is just too perfect and I can't believe the Lord blessed us with him.

Swaddle Designs Review and Giveaway!



We are a little swaddle obsessed in this household! I am loving these muslin swaddle blankets from Swaddle Designs. I received a ton of different swaddle blankets from my baby shower and seriously these are hands down the BEST. I'm going to go so far as to say that they are way softer than the Aiden and Anias brand! We hopped on that bandwagon and spent the money on those and then hopped right off because seriously there's nothing special about them in my opinion. 
SwaddleDesigns products are known for their great quality and long lasting value that moms and babies love and enjoy for years. I use them not only as a swaddle but as a light blanket! You can also use them as a cover while nursing or over the carseat to keep sun out! 

SwaddleDesigns is also well respected by the medical community – often recommended by pediatricians, nurses, doulas, newborn care instructors. SwaddleDesigns soft muslin swaddles are made from high quality cotton and get softer with every wash. They feature prints and patterns sure to delight. Single muslins make it fun to choose your favorite prints and make gift giving easy because the singles come in a lovely gift box.



SwaddleDesigns was founded by Lynette Damir, RN, Designer and Mom of two. SwaddleDesigns is known for their premium quality fabric, fabulous colors and prints, and their innovative 123 Swaddle® pictorial instructional label sewn to the edge of their Swaddling blankets that makes learning how to swaddle so easy. As a new mommy I love having this tag as a reference. Definitely a must for that hospital bag.

The Copper Cloud Clothing Review!


Who doesn't love a cute pair of baby Joggers and a Hip little Bandana Bib! We are so honored to represent The Copper Cloud! The quality of their products are fantastic! I have washed and dried Hunter's little pants multiple times (anybody else have a happy spitter?!) and they still feel like they did when we received them!
 I really love the style of the shop and they have options for both boys and girls. The clothes are not obnoxiously trendy either. I find that these days the trendy baby clothes are getting a little weird ;) I can definitely pair these with multiple items Hunter's closet which is really nice and easy. Who wants to be trying to style a baby outfit when you don't even have time to shower yourself! Haa mom life!

HUNTER || 2 MONTHS OLD


 2 month. 

Weight: Around 12lbs. 

Height: 23 inches

Clothes Size: Still fitting into those 0-3 month clothes! The shirt has has on in the pictures is a 6 month one though! I'm guessing it depends on the brand ;) 

Milestones: Holding head up, eating his hands, cooing, giggling, bearing weight on his legs, holding onto a finger or toy! 

Food: Hunter is eating 4-4.5 oz. every 3 hours...We were up to 5-5.5 oz. but he started spitting up a ton so we changed bottles and moved him back down to 4-4.5 oz. 

Sleeping: He is sleeping for about an hour and a half between feedings during the day. At night he is sleeping about 6-7 hours then eating and going back to sleep. The past 2 nights though he has not been sleeping as well. I don't know if he needs to eat more before bed or if he's having a growth spurt...we will see! 

Favorite Activities: Being talked to, Posing for his Mommarazzi ;) he smiles as soon as I bring the camera out! , sitting propped up in a chair by himself, standing up, being changed. 

Dislikes: Air bubbles in his tummy of coarse, being too cold after or in the bath, the bottle being taken away to burp, he is also not too fond of tummy time. He doesn't cry much at all though :) 

Baby Gear Loves: I stared using his little Fisher Price vibrating seat. He loves to sit up in it and watch everything that's going on. I do not use the vibrating feature though. 

Things I don't want to forget: He got a rash on his little face :( He is talking and smiling so much more now, He might be doing a little bit of mimicking already but it may just be coincidence. The way that he looks at me is just priceless. It's crazy to me how much love he has for Kyle and I at just 2 months old. It's still a strange feeling to have such a deep connection with this little person that's mine but I love it!



My Newborn Favorites!


The whole motherhood thing has been quite the journey! I love being a momma but sometimes I think it would've been nice to see what others needed for their newborn. Not just what to register for, but the basics that they and their baby actually use and love! Here is what Hunter and I have been loving so far! 


1. Boon Grass-We love this drying rack so much. It definitely comes in handy with all of the bottle washing that I am doing these days. You can fit so much onto the grass and it's super nice to be able to use the outside edges to hang bottle parts off of. Make sure you get the twig accessory too. I use it to hand all of the nipples and pacis from. 

2. Munchkin Bottle Warmer-Very affordable and quick. It uses steam to heat the bottle evenly and has a dial that you turn for the timer. I love this warmer. You definitely get the most bang for your buck with this one!

3. Tommmee Tippee Feeding Bibs- Say goodbye to stinky formula neck! Well not completely...but this bib is still amazing. It has the extra thick neckline to absorb any formula drool or spit up. I am about to go buy like 10 more because we go through them so fast.  

4. Dr. Brown's Bottles- We originally bought the Tommee Tippee bottles but found that Hunter swallowed too much air and gulped his bottle down too fast. It caused him to spit up a ton...like half of his bottle. We switched to the Dr. Brown's Bottle and LOVE them so far. He very rarely spits up anymore which puts this momma's worrying mind at ease. The bottle is designed to allow for air flow through the bottle while they're drinking making them less gassy. It's a must have for baby's who have reflux, are gassy or have colic. He was just a "happy spitter" but I am so happy we mad the switch to these bottles. 

5. Graco Pack-and-Play with napper and changer- Hunter sleeps in the napper insert. It's really nice because it is inclined which also helps with babies who have reflux. You can flip over the napper and it turns into a changing station. I love having a nice little station to keep all of his diapers and supplies. 

6. Advent Soothie Pacifiers- These are literally the only pacifiers that he likes! He hardly takes his wubb-a-nubb which has the same soothie attached! I think it may just be the weight from the toy attached.

7. 4 Moms Momma Roo- When we first brought him home from the hospital, this is what he slept in. He loves the movement and I really like that you can adjust the incline of the seat. We didn't get the infant insert because we just used the JJ Cole one that didn't fit into his car seat. I would recommend getting the insert though. It has multiple rocks and is very space saving! We have a smaller house so it's nice to not have my living room taken over by a giant swing. 

8. Velcro Swaddlers- LIFESAVER!! We have swaddled him from day 1 and didn't get these until he was about 3 weeks. Originally I wasn't sure about them for some reason but now that we have them, I have no need for any other swaddle. We have Aiden and Anais and Carters swaddles that are going unused now because these velcro swaddles are just so amazing. He loves being swaddled to sleep and these make it so much nicer because he doesn't get out of it while he sleep like other swaddles. They are totally fool proof so do yourself a favor and get them NOW!! 

9. Ingenuity Rocking Sleeper- Any "rock and play" type sleeper with do just fine...we just got this one from my shower. He takes almost all of his naps in it during the day. It is at an incline and even has a little vibrator attached to it. I love that I can have him sleep in it and when he is waking up too soon before feeding, I just rock it with my foot while I'm working and he falls right back asleep.



Hope this helped any new mommas out there! What are your favorite newborn items? I would love to hear from other mommas who have other must haves to try! 

With Love, 
Kenzie Ann
