Amazon Wish List

Please note this post may contain affiliate links.

Hi everyone! I don’t know about you but Amazon is one of the best things to come into my life.  We are so lucky to have so many items to choose from at just the click of a button.

I also love that you can make wish lists for different occasions so when you think of something you can add it there in the moment… because I definitely have mom brain and if I don’t do it then I will never remember what my idea was!

One of my favorite features is that influencers can make a public list to share with their tribes.  So today I wanted to share with you what is on my wish list.  It is an array of items for my family, myself and my house.

 

I love when I see gift ideas for others I can just add them to my list automatically and that helps me price check too! I also love that so many products have reviews right there so if it is on the cheaper side (especially clothes) you can really see how they may fit or the quality!

Check out whats on my list and let me know what you have to order too!

What are your must haves from Amazon?

Tripp’s Favorite Things + 20 Month Update

As I sit down to write this post I just can’t get over that Tripp is almost 20 months old.  He is a talking machine, a runner and full of life.  He eats ALL the food, ALL the time and he is getting cuter by the day which I don’t even know how that is possible.

He loves to keep me on my toes and he is learning how to play by himself… which is amazing for this work at home mama.  Tripp loves to play catch and He is a wiz at puzzles.

Which leads me to this….I get asked all the time what are some of Tripp’s Favorite Toys are so I wanted to put together a quick toy list. Most of these are smaller items but I wanted to show off the best item first…  Tripp is a little over a year and a half right not so he loves A LOT of things but we really have fallen in love with Melissa and Doug toys! They don’t feel cheap and they are durable!

This Jeep has a remote for the parents to use and Tripp is OBSESSED with it!

Duck Toy Review

*This post contains affiliate links.

This year I decided not to really do gift guides since there are so many out there.  However, if you follow me on Instagram you know I have been throwing ideas out here and there.

Well I came across another cool gift that I wanted to share with you all. This is a plush duck [comes as a bunny too] that is also has a hot and cold therapy feature! The  pouch is even infused with the calming scent of natural chamomile and lavender amidst eco-friendly mineral micro beads. I also love the portable size.

18 Month Update

I realize now I never posted Tripp’s One Year update #momlife! Here we are at a year and a half and just when I think Tripp won’t blow my mind again he says a new word or has a new skill.

Tripp loves talking, dancing, and running everywhere! He is such a ham and loves making people laugh!

He loved halloween and was the life of the party! Check out him dancing in the lion costume below.

Discipline is hitting hard right now and I am doing my best to be consistent and understanding all at the same time. Time outs are a thing these days and Tripp is NOT a fan… as seen below.

Tantrums aside, I’m loving this phase SO much! He is learning and growing by leaps and bounds.  One of my favorite things to hear him say it “Tank Ew” for thank you… Talk about melting my heart. He is SO social and loves waving and talking to EVERYONE.

I could go on and on but I’ll stop while I am ahead! But I would love to hear your tips and tricks for discipline?
