I thought it would be fun to start sharing a random find on Fridays. Nope. It won’t be every Friday, because if I say that….I’ll never do it again. (I still need to finish posting Harlow’s 52 weeks photos — I have them taken, just need to organize them all together. Tangent: any recommendations on where to get a poster printed of all the photos? In a grid? Kthankssomuch.)
So today’s Friday find: Wesenjak slippers. As you can see from the photo above….my family is a little obsessed. The only toesies missing? Jonesy’s. And don’t you worry a hot second, he already has a few pairs waiting for his cute little feet to just get a bit bigger.
I can’t take credit for finding these fabulous things. My parents purchased a pair for my dad on a whim — I think maybe even on vacation? They are 100% wool, but the bottom has a good grip to them, which is important for our all-wood-floor home.
They can run you about $40 or more bucks……but Sierra Trading wins the day.
If you follow me on instagram, you might have seen my proclaimed love for the mimijumi bottle. As a mom to a current bottle-hater and a kid who was once a bottle-hater, I wish I had learned about these bottles when Harlow was a babe.
Jones doesn’t need to take a bottle often — I’m comfortable nursing in public if I need to and really, I just kind of hate pumping unless I need to. (If you are local and need milk donated, however, I love pumping for that reason — please email me!) There have been a few evenings when I’ve been out for dinner or an event, and I haven’t been there to put Jones to bed. After refusing bottle after bottle, I jumped at the chance to try the mimijumi.
I asked my dad to do the honors while we were home over Christmas. I wanted to be present, but I figured we had more of a chance if I wasn’t the one giving him a bottle! He gulped the entire thing — evening taking the last 2ish ounces from me! It’s not a bottle to rush feedings, by any means, and I’m really thankful for that. One reason I don’t do a lot of bottles is my own personal fear of my baby preferring that over me and causing problems with continue breastfeeding.
We were so glad he would take a bottle during our drive home! Harlow had just fallen asleep when I knew Jones would be soon to wake — and hungry — so I quickly pumped and filled a bottle for him. (Sorry if you passed us on the interstate… insert no-see monkey emoji here.) Harlow slept for a few more hours and Jones was fed: totally a parenting win moment in my book!
Mimijumi has generously offered to giveaway a “Not So Hungry” bottle (4oz) to one of you! Easy peasy: enter below!
I have been wanting to make a mobile for Jones since before he was born. In my mind, I had it all figured out, of course. One early September afternoon, Harlow and I sat outside and painted wooden shapes that I thought just maybe would become a mobile, but they just weren’t quite right. […]
I shamelessly love to match my kiddos. If we can coordinate outfits without it being too too obvious, it’s probably for the best. I got these green DAVID KIND glasses a few months ago — I’ve always randomly wanted a pair of green frames, and they delivered! — and now I can’t seem to stop wearing them! […]
I mentioned last week that I would be back with more from Downeast! We thought it would be fun to take the same dress — the Off to Play Dress from Downeast — and see how we each end up styling it! This Off to Play dress is just about as comfy as your favorite […]
