Transitioning your Toddler from their Nursery

Nursery room transitions

Our sweet Aria has officially outgrown her nursery! If I wasn’t pregnant with one more baby right now I would (most definitely) be sobbing over this milestone. It seems like everything changes once they move into a big kid bed, doesn’t it? Aria is 3.5 years old, but is still so tiny. She was also quite content in her crib, not to mention we liked the security of it 😉 … But, all good things must come to an end, I suppose. 

If you are preparing to transition your toddler out of their crib, read on for some advice and helpful tips offered in partnership with Sweet Lullaby Sleep! PLUS, don’t miss our giveaway at the end of this post to win a few items to help with your family’s sleep needs!

It’s a … Baby #3 Gender Reveal!

Gender Reveal

Eeeekkkk. You guys, we did it! We found out the gender of baby number three! I am SO excited to write this post and let you all in on our gender reveal secret! We didn’t find out the sex of our girls, so this was a crazy, fun, new experience for us. Mike was the one who really wanted to know this time around, and I think it will be so helpful to plan for babe’s arrival, especially with how busy we are with the girls. We took this opportunity to get some beautiful family sunset photos too! Thank you to Jamie Taylor Photography for capturing these beautiful images.

Kid-friendly Kelowna Coffee Shops

Kelowna Coffee Shops with Kids

It’s always amazed me how challenging it can be to find a coffee shop to enjoy a cup of coffee while your children play. Can’t a barista understand that the key to happiness may well exist at the bottom of an uninterrupted cup of hot coffee? I guess as a Mom I’m a bit biased. We wouldn’t want to cramp anyone’s style. 😉 But here are some local coffee shops that have a welcoming atmosphere for kids. Enjoy your coffee, parents!
