One of my resolutions lately has been to take more walks with our stroller! Believe it or not, this has been hard for me due to all the things I need to take with us plus carrying Charlie! That’s why when babycharm.co reached out to me to feature their stroller organizer I JUMPED on it!
I first started babywearing out of desperation when the twins were newborns. I simply couldn’t walk around constantly holding them both in my arms but they needed to be near mama. It quite literally saved my life, and I quickly fell in love with the ability to have my hands free and soothe and love on my babies at the same time. I knew when Charlie was born I would wear him, and I honestly don’t know how I would handle my toddler twins and him without it! And before I begin, I am not a trained babywearing consultant. I AM a mama who has been babywearing for nearly four years successfully and as always, I simply share here what has helped me and my babies.
I am SOO excited to share with you all an amazing mama and her incredible handmade, no waste shops! I found the lovely kind and talented Jesika Stoll in my search for the perfect adventure bags for the twins to take on our hikes and walks and various outdoor explorations. We LOVE her adventure bags! They’re the perfect size, beautifully made with quality materials, and easy for little hands to use. The twins are obsessed and literally take them everywhere! Jesika is a woman of many wonders, and has three different incredible shops that I am just in love with! The adventure bags are from her shop Keetna Farm Kids, where she also has clothing, wooden learning items and more! In addition to Keetna Farm Kids, she has Keetna Farm Botanicals and Keetna Farm Goods. I am obsessed with her reusable bags and other zero waste goods!

I’m SO excited to share with you all today about Rockabye Baby!’s upcoming release of Rockabye Baby! Renditions of Miranda Lambert, which officially drops June 28th! (pre-order available right now!) Rockabye Baby! has been such a part of our parenting journey, back when the twins were newborns listening to Rockabye Baby! albums was one of the very, VERY few things that helped calm them! I have so many precious memories of being a new mom and listening to Rockabye Baby! in the car, at home, in the wee hours of the night! We have continued listening to their albums, the twins still love them! And now we adore enjoying them with Charlie too! Rockabye Baby! has SO many artists available (scroll down this post for a list!) and even adorable clothing like the organic cotton onesie Charlie is rocking in these photos!
Calling all country-loving parents, Rockabye Baby! just released a new album Rockabye Baby! Renditions of Miranda Lambert that will drift your little ones right to sleep. The twelve track album features Miranda’s biggest hit’s from “Mama’s Broken Heart” to “Little Red Wagon,” “Over You” and more! Soothing out the fiery Texan’s tough-talking tunes and crunchy guitars, Rockabye Baby transforms all her greatest hits into delicate chimes and soothing xylophones. Take a listen here!
We are absolutely IN LOVE with these new summer must have items from Lena’s Yard! This precious frill dress and short romper are perfect for every summer activity, from going for ice cream to frolicking through the dandelions! Click here or any picture to shop her Etsy store!
I have to confess that I’ve had a serious “brand crush” on Kidbox for some time and have just been wanting to collaborate with them sooooo much, so you can imagine my excitement when I received the opportunity to do so! Spoiler alert: they deliver on their promise for you to #unpackhappy !!! Need to shop now? Click here and use code mamaplaybook for 15% off your first box (which is in addition to the already amazing discount they provide!) Keep reading to see why we love them! In addition to the fact that each Kidbox is basically a magical Mary Poppins box (the clothes just kept coming!!!) and that they’ve seriously been the sweetest and kindest people EVER, here are a few reasons I adore them and am so excited to share them with you today:
A few weeks ago we had the tremendous privilege to win a giveaway hosted by Hazel and Home! (she is a beautiful mama with a gorgeous Insta feed, follow her Instagram here!) We won a $25 dollar credit to Denim+Dot, Rebecca Gail Garments, AliJane&Co, Hello Charlie Shop and Dear Loa! (I will be adding pictures from Hello Charlie soon, her shop is on a temporary close so check back!) After just about falling off my chair with glee, I had the time of my life browsing these amazing handmade small shops, and counted the moments until our beautiful packages would arrive in the mail. We were not disappointed, the quality and love that every single one of these items is made with makes my heart burst with joy. These incredible small mama made shops are now among my most favorite places to buy from, and they have graciously agreed for me to feature them on here so that I can share them with you!
