BABY REGISTRY ESSENTIALS

BABY REGISTRY ESSENTIALS

Time to talk baby registry! I get so many of you who ask what are my top things to register for. Having twins first really started me off in a whirlwind. I had no idea where to even begin and needing practically 2 of everything seemed super daunting. This time around with one little boy on the way, I know exactly what I need and have much more clarity on what is essential. I also saved some things from the girls, so I didn’t need everything like I did the first time around. So today I wanted to share some of my must-haves and I hope you find this helpful!

Summer Bucket List with Reef X Zappos

Summer Bucket List with Reef X Zappos

It’s almost summer! Living in Southern California practically my whole life has made me love summers. Yes it can get pretty hot, but the sunshine does good things for the soul! We have actually had a ton of rain this year so whenever it’s sunny out, I take the girls outside and we just enjoy it. We love driving to the beach, the river or swimming in our backyard. And seeing how much these two little girls love to be outside makes me appreciate it that much more. Today I wanted to share some things on my summer bucket list with you! We will have a newborn baby so it will be very interesting but I’m going to stay optimistic! And I’ll be sharing why Reef sandals from Zappos fit in perfectly with our family during the summertime!

Life Lately with Toddlers

Life Lately with Toddlers

Hey guys, I hope you are all doing great! Today I wanted to fill you in on what’s going on in the Atkins household. A lot has changed with the girls, I’m now in my third trimester of this pregnancy and I thought we could just chat! I’m actually typing this in the air as we speak. I’m heading to Miami, believe it or not, on a work trip. I can’t talk about details yet, but you’ll find out soon enough! One of my good friends, Summer, is joining me since I’m pretty far along in my pregnancy. I didn’t feel comfortable traveling across the country alone so she is with me for moral support! I am going to do a post soon on traveling while pregnant and traveling without your kids. I’ve had a lot of questions asking how I feel leaving the girls and what-not, so I’ll have a post on that soon.

Similarities and Differences between my Twin vs Singleton Pregnancy

Similarities and Differences between my Twin vs Singleton Pregnancy

What is the difference between your twin pregnancy and this pregnancy?

That is the most common question I get asked these days so I decided to write a full post on what has been the same and what has been different. Sometimes it feels like I was just pregnant and then other days that time in my life feels forever ago. I even started watching some of my old pregnancy updates to compare the two and also see how big I was at different times. Now, I’m not quite in my third trimester yet, almost, but here is what I’ve realized about the two pregnancies up until this point. *And after finishing this post I am seeing how different they have been! I have been telling most people they have actually been a lot alike but now I’m realizing they have been pretty different.

Travel Tips with 2 Year Olds!

Travel Tips with 2 Year Olds!

Hey guys! So today I wanted to share some travel tips if you have little ones. Our twins are 2 years old now, so things are definitely different from a year ago, and even just 6 months ago. I always am so thankful for Andrew, because I sometimes would rather just not go anywhere just so I don’t have to deal with the stress of traveling with the girls. It’s much easier to stay at home and remain in our everyday routine. But Andrew is always wanting to go to new places with the girls and I’m always glad we went after. Even if it was a lot of work (which is usually is!), it’s fun to look back on those memories and be able to show the girls everything they did when they were little.

Toddlers and Sleep

Toddlers and Sleep

I wanted to talk about sleep because it’s something I care A LOT about. I take naptime and bedtime pretty seriously for a few reasons. 1. The girls are in a much better mood when they get good sleep, it’s good for their development and physical growth. 2. It’s my time to get stuff done! But for reals, I really do count on their naps to film and edit videos and just get the important things done that need all my focus.

Family Christmas Cards

Family Christmas Cards

I wanted to share more of our holiday photos with you all! I’m so happy with how the turned out. Taking pictures with twin (almost 2) year olds is no easy task! Most of the time they were looking at the ants on a tree and wanting to play with sticks. We bribed with cookies (see photo below) and the park and pretended to point at lots of things in the sky.

Mom's Deserve the Gift of Comfort!

With Thanksgiving over, Christmas is right around the corner! I like to do all of my holiday shopping pretty early so I don’t have to worry about it at the last minute.

So with the season of giving here, it’s always a good reminder of what I’m thankful for and it’s nice to give something to those people who mean a lot to me.
