+ then there were four


we're having another baby!

dustin + i could not be more excited to announce that we're growing our little family!

we found out we were pregnant on kingston's 2nd birthday which i thought was pretty special in itself. although we weren't actively trying for a baby yet at this point, a little voice in my head started whispering "what if" + "wouldn't that be neat to find out on his birthday" so i took a test + sure enough - there's a little human cooking! our sweet baby k is scheduled to arrive at the beginning of february.

i was pretty sick the first trimester which was identical to my pregnancy with kingston but now that we're in the second trimester, i'm feeling a million times better. i'm still waiting for that second trimester energy to make an appearance though...
we use the ovia app to keep track of the baby's development. we used it for kingston too. it's so fun checking in to see how big baby k's hands + feet are!

a few things on our to-do list before the baby arrives:

1. get kingston adjusted + sleeping in his big-boy bed
2. potty train (help!!)
3. finish our basement
4. upgrade mama's vehicle

we are so thankful that we've been blessed with this tiny miracle + we can't wait to meet our new little babes! we'll keep you posted along the way. xo

our bath time essentials

kingston has loved bath time since day one + over the course of the last two years, we've faithfully been using the same bath time products time + time again.

here are a few of our favourites:



JACK + JILL NATURAL TOOTHPASTE | kingston's current favourite is blueberry. it's organic + safe to swallow aka perfect for a toddler. i've also been eyeing the jack + jill buzzy brush musical electric toothbrush. he currently likes to use my sonicare but this mama wouldn't mind her toothbrush back.

BOON WHALE POD | it's the perfect amount of storage for bath toys + bubble bath/shampoo bottles. it also doubles as a handy drainable scoop for picking up + rinsing off bath toys. you can attach the pod to the bathroom wall with adhesive or screws (we mounted ours with the adhesive stickers). we've had a clutter-free tub ever since!

POTTERY BARN KIDS HOODED TOWELS | these towels are handwoven from chemical-free cotton + are super soft + absorbent. we use ours for bath time + at the pool!

THE HONEST COMPANY SHAMPOO + BODY WASH | this stuff is the bomb. it's smells so yummy that majority of the time, this is my go-to shampoo too! i love that it's made without any harsh chemicals or synthetic fragrances + it's vegan!

BOON ODD DUCKS | as i've mentioned in previous posts, we are addicted to all things boon + these ducks are no exception. our household is a huge of boon bath products because unlike those other squirty bath toys, they don't hold any water in them - aka no mold!

THINKBABY BABY LOTION | this lotion is hands down our favourite because it's light, unscented + super hydrating. we've been using it for over two years with no reactions + i love that it's not greasy!

THE HONEST COMPANY BUBBLE BATH | perfect for everyday bath routines. we love these fun-filled bubbles packed with aloe, calendula, coconut oil + other natural goodies that keep kingston's skin soft.

AVEENO ECZEMA THERAPY NIGHTTIME BALM | all the swimming + water that summertime brings...i find kingston dries out really fast. it's a bit on the pricey side but it lasts forever!
