Diaper Rash Bath Soak

Our little Payton is currently getting three teeth that I am aware of, and oh my goodness her diaper changes are not fun currently! Poor little babe has the worst rash, and sobs when I go to change her. I checked to see if we had any oatmeal bath, and even asked my mom but […]

Raising Kind Boxes

I just recently discovered that you can follow hashtags on Instagram. I assume it’s been around for a while but I never really got into it! On my blog Instagram account @nextplaywithmrs.j, I recently started following #michiganmama. It’s actually been really neat! I’ve been able to connect with other moms all over the country, but […]

Darling Little Ruffles Boutique

If you have been following my blog for a little while now, you know that I have loved to share different shops, boutiques, or places that are small businesses! I have shared a few different small shops that I have purchased items for Carter’s wardrobe, and now I have one to share on Payton’s behalf! […]

Coffee Filter Butterflies

Do you remember making these back in Pre-School?! I came across a pack of coffee filters in our cupboards while I was cleaning, and thought what am I supposed to do with these! We used to have a real coffee maker but now we have a Keurig. I decided that they could just go in […]

Potty Training: 101

I swear, this was probably the most challenging part of motherhood to date LOL. I think I expected it to be a little easier than I thought so maybe that didn’t help me. I also felt like it was more emotionally draining than I thought it would be as well. But when I look back […]

Paint Tape Snowflakes

It’s that time of year where I need to find fun things to keep us busy INDOORS. As much as we love winter and snow, we also miss being able to get outside every day! I decided to check our craft basket and find something we could do. It was a huge success and I […]

Favorite Baby Items (Happy Eight Weeks Payton Jeanne!)

It’s hard to believe that Payton is eight weeks old! It’s been a whirlwind becoming a mom of two. Each day is different, and some days are better than others of course! I’ve had several moms ask me what some of my favorite things are that I use for Payton, so I decided to make […]

Helping You and Your Toddler Transition With a New Baby

It’s been three weeks since our little Payton entered this crazy world! It has been quite the adjustment being a stay-at-home mom with two kids, but I think we are finally getting the hang of things. I will be totally honest, for the first couple weeks it was absolutely “survival mode.” As in one day […]

Payton Jeanne: Birth Story

“For this child I have prayed, and the Lord has granted the desires of my heart.” 1 Samuel 1:27 The last week of my pregnancy I was pretty grouchy… just being honest! I was so uncomfortable, barely sleeping, and the waiting game was driving me a little nuts. I kept telling myself I knew Payton […]

Binky Training: 101

First of all, if you are about to try and ween your little one off of their pacifier (we call Carter’s his binky), I am already sending prayers. This process has had me just as exhausted as Carter was! But we are starting to get the hang of things, so I’d love to share a […]
