Declan will be 7 months this week… The time has flown by, while at the same time has felt like forever. I have crossed a lot of things off the ‘you’re a mom when…’ list, and today I added labeling my kids clothes for daycare. I am not sure how I got to this point, but it feels right.

I just finished up a huge project at work last week ( worked my first 12 hour day. Yuck) so things have been hectic. Here are some instagrams from the last week or so.
Perfectly ripe plums from TJ’s
Some sweet WPA posters
First day of daycare outfit (more on daycare later… long story short: its good but it kind of sucks but we know it will get better)
Growing tomatoes! Hopefully the grow nice and plump.
He loves sand!
Finally added a photo of the little dude to my cube.

Coral won out this time (thanks for your input!!) But at the first sign of Fall (which admittedly doesn’t really exist in southern California) the gray will come out!

Note: This is not a sponsored post. I always appreciated baby product reviews when I was pregnant (heck, I still do!) so I wanted to review a few of my favorite products. More posts on products I love will come soon-ish.
When I was pregnant I saw a few fellow bloggers who used the Boon highchair. I quickly fell in love with the look of it. So sleek! So modern! The part about the pneumatic lift and the easy to clean? Sure, throw those in too. I registered for it at Target and some very generous friends gifted us with it. It stayed in it’s box and went into the garage until we needed it. A little before Declan started needing a highchair I started to second guess myself. Do I really need it? It would make so much more sense to take it back, get the $230 credit and just pick up a $20 highchair from IKEA. I don’t know if it was out of laziness or an actual decision that the Boon was really a good choice, but one day it was brought up and assembled and we haven’t looked back.
This thing is awesome. The wheels make it easy to wheel into the kitchen when we want to feed him while we cook. The pneumatic lift is actually very handy as we can keep him high up when in the kitchen, or lower at table height when feeding him at the dinner table. And since it is made out of one piece of material, with dishwasher safe tray covers, it is veeeery easy to clean. I can’t even imagine having a highchair with any sort of fabric on it because Declan likes to do this when he eats (shot courtesy of my husband’s iPhone):
All in all, I say that if you can swing it, get this highchair. You won’t regret it!

Love this article and slideshow of flight attendant fashions through the years. No yoga pants and ponytails in these passengers! And hot pants? Why not!

Sometimes I need a little reminder, so I set this as my desktop.
