Mommy Style Monday: How to connect with your spouse.

Happy Valentine's Eve everyone! I am so excited to be part of Mommy Style Monday with such wonderful ladies. Head to Kiana at Glitter & Donuts or Madeline at CaseyLand to sign up to be a part of the next one! I love following all those mamas on Instagram and connecting with them. What a great community for mothers.

I love the topic of this Monday. How to connect with your spouse? Jacob and I were married for four years before we became parents. Ever since having Henry 18 months ago it has changed. Here are some fun ways we connect:

1) Date night in! Which means Netflix, Hulu, or Rebox movies. We snuggle on the couch once or twice a week and catch up on our shows. If it's on the weekend we may buy a dessert/snack to eat while we watch.
2) Target runs without kids. My mom watches Henry while he sleeps and we head to Target alone. We love walking every isle while holding hands. Simple and cute.
3) Coldstone. We love ice cream and sometimes we sneak away for a short date night. We eat ice cream and walk around the outside mall.
4) Anniversary Trip. Every year we go out of town on our anniversary June 11th and stay alone over night.
5) Notice Each Other. Sometimes the best way to connect with your spouse is just to notice the things they do that you appreciate. It can be something small like a back scratch while brushing your teeth, or something big like a cheesy smile she gets when she is being extra goofy. Realizing that there are a lot of those things that make your spouse special and wonderful are key to being able to connect and love one another. This last one was written by Andrea's husband.

My husband is seriously such an amazing guy. He always opens every door for me (including my car door), makes me laugh/smile everyday, is the kindest guy I know, always tells me he loves me, and is the best father to our son! Happy early birthday tomorrow!

Bath time essentials

Happy weekend friends,

Henry is now 18 months old and bath time is still his favorite time. We give him a bath every other night because his skin is so sensitive. He can get dry spots in his skin and little bumps. I always use all natural body washes and lotions. We have heard of Tubby Todd for years but haven't had the chance to try it. I first pinned this Everyday Lotion on Pinterest a few years ago. We love lavender in this house and this 100% natural lotion DOES not disappoint. You just need a tiny squeeze and it goes a long way. I love that Tubby Todd is toxin, paraben, sulfate, artificial fragrance/color, BPA and animal cruelty free!! We are in love and his skin is so smooth now. They also sent me a sample of their Hair and Body wash. That was amazing and Henry loved all the bubbles it made on his body. I love watching him play with his bath toys and making bubbles in the water with his mouth. I never want to forget these moments.

Thank you to Tubby Todd Bath Co for sending us these products! We are loving Henry's soft skin.
