My Second Baby Must Haves

As an AP style parent, I'm a big believer in that you don't really need a lot of "stuff" to have a baby.  The first time around I had like, spreadsheets of all the "must haves" and a lot of it (swing, wipe warmer, swaddles, etc) sat around collecting dust.  All you really need, in my opinion is your boobs and some diapers.  That being said, here are some of the things that have come in handy the second time around:

1.  This baby carrier- it's my favorite favorite. I basically wear it all day, every day.  I wrote more about it here!

2.  The Boppy Lounger- You just NEED a place to set them down the second time around.  This is probably our most used item, other than the carrier.  We liked this one better than others because of the angle.  Ralphie likes to be able to see what is going on around him.

3.  A double stroller- this one can go in about a billion combinations.  We also love the rider board that hooks on.

4.  This sponge bath thing!  This seems like such a weird purchase, but it has been SO helpful when bathing two of them- read all the reviews!

5.  The Nose Frida- this is just a great thing to have for any baby, but you kind of need an individual one for each baby.

6. & 7. Their own blankets and burp cloths.  Of course you could reuse these, but I found it nice to have new ones for the new addition.  These are Ralphie's swaddles.  And the old burp clothes have that weird yellow tint.  We love these ones, they're nice and big!

8.  A dual camera baby monitor- if you are lucky enough to have both kids sleeping at the same time, in a room away from you, this will come in handy.  So far, that has not happened to me, ha.

9.  A wrap  or a sling for those early days before the carrier feels right.

Stuff We're Loving

All the good stuff we are digging right now.  

      1.  These Henley onesies are so freaking adorable- Ralphie rocks them pretty much daily.  

2.  I'm obsessed with this tie- front, button down tee.  It's nursing friendly, goes with everything, and comes in a bunch of colors

3.  OMG this potty watch.  Absolute game changer for our potty training ordeals!  I plan to write more about how this is going, but if your toddler is motivated by being grown up, having a cool watch that tells when to go instead of boring old mom is so helpful!

4.  Fourth of July pajamas for my littles- I just love holiday pajamas, and matching babes! 
5.  These are my favorite bow slides- I now have them in multiple colors.  In denim here, and on sale here!!

Ophelia Style: Toddler Dresses

Ophelia at two and a half is basically a style maven.  She is obsessed with her clothes and getting dressed- if she had her way she'd wear a dress or a tutu everyday.  I invited her to do a little guest edit and share some of her favorites:

Father's Day Gift Guide

Ophelia calls her dad "Guy" so for us Father's Day could be known as Guy Day.  Happy Guy's Day!

Golf Polo : My husband has this in three colors- it's a good one! 
BBQ Spices : This is for the chef who also tries to stay healthy- there is no sugar or other yucky stuff in these spices! 
Bags Set : What guy doesn't love bags.  Did you know it's technically called cornhole? 
Personalized 5-in-1 Grill Tool: What a nifty tool.  
Personalized Golf Balls : I think we are going to make some of these actually- lots of cool craft ideas here!
Putting Alignment Tool : On my husband's wishlist.  
Bonfire Pit : What is it with boys and fire?

Timex Watch: A classic.  
Yeti Lowball: My husband uses this every single day.  A Yeti cooler would be a good gift too- Yeti stuff seems to be like candy for men.  
Baseball Tee: So cute!

I am wearing this one!

I DO NOT need another white eyelet top.  I DO NOT need another white eyelet top.  I am repeating this to myself, but I do not know how effective I am being.  If you, on the other hand, do need one, here are some goodies.
