Playtime with Wee Giggles Play Mat

Thank you Wee Giggles for sponsoring my post. All my opinions are my own.

We are currently renting a house with all hard wood floors which we thought were beautiful until we had another baby. There wasn't a safe place for him to play on the floor or do tummy time. The Wee Giggles play mat was delivered at the perfect time. Earlier that week our pediatrician asked me if I had started tummy time with Oliver and I said not yet. To be honest I had forgotten when to start. I haven't had a baby in three years.

Reasons we love our Wee Giggles Play Mat:
1) Safe & comfortable play area for our baby
2) Keeps our big chocolate lab mix dog away from the baby(she sheds a lot)
3) We love the gray and white colored foam tiles
4) Easy to clean
5) Non toxic play mat
6) Has foldable sides/fence to keep baby safe

Setting up our Wee Giggles mat was so much fun with my toddler Henry. He loved naming all the different animals on it and was so excited that it was a big puzzle. We mostly have my toddler's toys in there since my baby cannot play with toys yet. I love watching my boys lay down together on the play mat. Oliver, our baby, loves watching his older brother play and he gives him the biggest smiles.


This sweet photo was taken by my three year old toddler who wanted to take pictures just like Daddy. I love his little feet sticking out.

Tummy time with that amazing hair!

Our Favorite Sleep Essentials For Baby

I have received these items compliments of the brand for my honest review.

Hello friends,
It has been a few months since I last blogged. Our sweet Oliver joined us on July 2nd and we are so in love with him. Adjusting to two has been harder that I thought it would be. I forgot how hard it is to wake up every two to three hours with a newborn.Also having a newborn that doesn't like to be put down often. He loves to snuggle. We are getting into more of  a routine now which is helpful. Oliver has slept stretches of four and five hours the past few days. I will probably jinx myself by writing that haha.
Having two boys and sons has melted my heart. Our oldest Henry is the sweetest and best big brother. Oliver gets the biggest smile around him and stops crying when Henry lays by him and holds his hand. I can tell these two will be best friends.

                

Our bedtime routine consists of having a full tummy, playing Jammy Jams on Spotify, being swaddled using  The Ollie World swaddle, and put down in his DockATot. We have always loved velcro swaddles and The Ollie is made of an amazing material that doesn't get hot. It has been so helpful in this California heat. Our little guy doesn't sleep long stretches unless he is swaddled.

            

We are loving our DockATot deluxe! That size is for 0-8 months old. Oliver feels secure and comforted while sleeping in it. I sleep better knowing he is he right next to me too. Oliver loves lounging in it while I get ready and doing tummy time on it. It is so helpful since I only have hard wood floors in our house.

Here is a throwback to Oliver at two weeks old. I cannot believe how quickly they grow.




Love,
