Making Memories with Carter’s


Thank you to Carter’s for sponsoring today’s post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

This weekend we had some amazing weather! It was in the 50s, which almost feels like Summer when you’re in Iowa in February and it was just snowing three days ago. Blaire got a tricycle from her great grandparents for Christmas and this weekend was the first time she was able to ride it outside. And she was SO excited! Not only was she excited to ride her bike, she was happy she could wear sandals. She’s been asking to wear her new sandals for the past week and it’s just been absolutely freezing, so she’s had to settle for wearing them around the house. Also on our spring weather agenda? Bubble blowing. Carter's Spring Baby Clothes

She has been practicing riding her bike around our basement since Christmas, so she did a great job pedaling up and down the sidewalk. Knowing baby boy will be here with us in just about 6 weeks, we are excited to make the most out of this time while Blaire is an only child. Hopefully this weather will stick around so we can make lots of trips to the park, walks around the neighborhood, and trips down the slide in the backyard.

We’ve been busy getting both Blaire and her baby brother’s closets stocked up with cute baby clothes for spring and, of course, that means we’ve made plenty of trips to Carter’s. Their spring lines are so adorable! For girls, there are lots of florals, ruffles, stripes and bright colors. The little rompers and bloomers are the. cutest. Lucky for me, we have four friends having baby girls within the six weeks after our boy is due, so that means lots of shopping for cute baby girls clothes. And for boys there are some super cute dinosaur pieces, bright colors, and layers. I love being able to shop in both sections now! Oh, and how cute is the little cutout in that floral babydoll top Blaire is wearing? I couldn’t help but keep thinking about how grown up she looks as we were outside playing. I can’t believe she’s going to be three in just a few weeks!

I can’t wait to make the most of my 12 weeks home with my two babies! Blaire is really excited to take her baby brother on long walks (she says she will push the stroller) and she really wants him to watch her go down the slides at the park. These last three years being a mom have been the best of my life. I can’t wait for the memories we’re going to make as a family of four! And speaking of baby brother, we have his closet stocked full of adorable pieces for spring, too! How adorable are these little bodysuits?

    I love Carter’s. I was just there the other day. I’m so glad that my daughter can still wear their clothes. I will be upset when she stages out!

  • ice cream outside with two of my favorite people. when it’s only 70° outside you can actually eat your ice cream without it melting all over us... and by us I mean them. 👆🏻👆🏻 #blaireandben

  • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

  • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

  • When your brother is getting big but you still want to hold him... you gotta pinch his butt because he’s so wiggly. 😂😬😍 #blaireandben •

  • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

  • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome

  • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
  • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
