I’ve been asked a lot about how our transition has been with two kids. Even though we’re only about two weeks in,… everything has been going really smoothly. I even feel really good post partum, still sore, but Jezriel has had to remind me to slow down & just relax.
I wanted to share a few must have items that were essentials for us. There were a ton of items that I felt we could have bought later down the road, but… hey I didn’t know our parenting style 🤷🏻♀️.
In addition to stocking up on those diapers, wipes, and clothes, below are items that popped into my head.
When preparing my birth center bag with Cataleya’s pregnancy I was a bit confused what to bring because I couldn’t find an example list anywhere online. They were all for hospital bags!
We officially have ✌🏼rear facing car seats installed and it’s so weird! This past weekend Jezriel and I met up with our Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST) to double check our install on the new seat and if Cataleya’s convertible seat needed any adjustments.
When I was pregnant with Cataleya I think I owned maybe two maternity items. I didn’t want to spend the money on them given you only wear them for a few months and I also didn’t like how they looked.
When Cataleya was first born we bought and returned so many baby monitors, but none worked for us. Even though we constantly found ourselves needing one, we still got stuck eventually not having one 😩. A few issues we had with other monitors was the connectivity, clarity both day, especially the night vision, and poor audio.
As Christmas approaches,…I’m scrambling to put together a Christmas dinner menu and go grocery shopping later today. I thought about a simple tablescape.
You would think the first thing I would do in our kitchen is to organize my constant baking essentials I constantly grab for. Had my fair share of mistakes, I’ve accidentally scooped up corn starch instead of powder sugar a few times in my random zip lock bags.
I can’t stop baking everyone!!! Normally my husband cooks, but things have changed lately. I can’t seem to stay out of the kitchen and have made a few dinners. It’s so weird how nesting just hits you. I’ve been making cookies, soufflés, cream brûlée, pies and who knows what else.
