Toddler Food with Yummy Spoonfuls

I don't know if all toddlers are the same, but boy does Nathaniel love to eat. I try to make homemade meals every day for him, but there are days where I don't have the time. Nevertheless, I want to make sure he still eats tasty and nutritious meals. So I began to research for options. Not long into my search, I discovered  the Yummy Spoonful section in my local Target. I brought home three different flavors from stage 3 foods and guess what, Nathaniel loved all three flavors!   lentil & carrot yummy spoonfuls

Visiting Underwood Family Farms

I love Sundays because my family and I always try to go to different places where Nathaniel can explore. This past Sunday, we took him to Underwood Family Farms in Moorpark, Ca. The weather was perfect, sunny, but not extremely hot. The drive is about an hour away from where we live so we tried to get there early to avoid traffic. As we got there the first thing we did was check out the animal show. Nathaniel was very excited each time he saw a new animal come out. But I think his favorite was Billy the Alpaca. Sadly, I couldn't take pictures of Billy because I was busy carrying Nathaniel. After the show, we went out to the PYO fields.

It's More than Just a Bath #LittleWonders

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of JOHNSON’S® Baby. The opinions and text are all mine.

Before Nathaniel was born, I probably watched over one hundred online tutorials on how to give a newborn the perfect bath. But when the day came to give Nathaniel his first bath, I was nervous regardless of how many videos I had watched. I wanted to make sure that he was comfortable, that the water wasn't too hot or too cold, or that I was cleaning him properly. Somehow everything started coming together and I felt so proud of myself for doing it all by myself.

Road Trip with a Baby/Toddler #RoadTripOil

In a few weeks my family and I will be going on a road trip and although it won't be the first time we will bring Nathaniel along, it will be his first long road trip so I want to make sure that I prepare very well. This year we will be heading to Houston to visit family. Traveling can sometimes take a toll on adults let alone kids/babies/toddlers. So it's quite important that I pack wisely and plan ahead of time. Based on our navigation system it should take us 24 plus hours to reach out destination. I like to put things in the car the night before heading out - it makes things less hectic the next day. If you'll be traveling this summer with little ones, these are some of my tips.

Nathaniel's First Outfit Post

I've been wanting to share Nathaniel's outfits with you all, but for some reason, I kept holding off. Today, however, I've decided to share with you his first outfit post. This is what he wore for Fourth of July. Summer means hot days so he pretty much lives in shorts every day.

My at Home Nail Care and Tips #SallyStrong

Nails care is more than just a weekly manicure and pretty nail polish. Nail care starts with  part of the body that we often don't see as important as others. I know I am guilty of thinking that way. Often times, we just see nails as that, nails and in return, we neglect them, but it shouldn't be that way. For that reason, I want to share with you a few tips on how I care of my nails. #SallyStrong
Eat a Balanced Diet: Everything starts within and eating healthy is the key to everything including beautiful strong nails. Food high in calcium will help to avoid discoloration and chipping.

A Day at Kern River #CYBEXDesign

This post was sponsored by CYBEX as part of an Ambassador Program for Influence Central. I received the CYBEX Balios Stroller and Aton Q Infant Car Seat to facilitate my review.

Family outings are one of my favorite things to do. Especially with this warm weather, there's nothing better than enjoying a nice day out with the family. The weather has been hot lately so we decided to head out to the Kern River for our last family outing. Our entire family enjoyed the day out swimming and eating carne asada next to the river. If you've been to the lake or river with family, you know that it's necessary to carry a lot of items. But of course, the fewer things you have to carry, the better.
