It’s summertime and there is a ton going on, including that BIG game over in Brazil! My husband is a huge soccer fan and has always supported the various teams. He is from Colombia, so of course, he is cheering them on as they progress through their rounds! Who are you cheering for…USA!? Anyway, our family of 3 has a lot to celebrate this summer too! Mainly, we are expanding to a family of 4! We have another little boy joining our family in July, and we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate!
I am already starting to stock up on things like Infants Tylenol, swaddle blankets, cloth diapers, and bottles! You just never know what you are going to need.
I like that Walgreens has promotions that encourage people to shop and stock up on various things. Right now they are offering Balance Reward Member point incentives where members can earn 3,000 points when they buy select $15 J&J products (select end-cap items-see photo below). This promotion runs from June 6 to July 26, 2014. This means you get cash back for your purchases, which is nice because these items definitely add up!
Seeing that I am about 9 months pregnant at this point, I have also been stocking up on things to help me through the pregnancy. Aveeno Moisturizing lotion is definitely a go-to for my ultra-dry pregnancy skin. It really helps lock in the moisture and keeps me from feeling dried out!
We are also celebrating my first son, Austin, being a BIG brother! He can’t wait for his little brother to get here, and we have been preparing him by reading fun baby books, talking about the baby, having him help us get the nursery together, and various other things. Austin loves ‘cuddling’ with the baby, and singing him songs through my belly…it’s so adorable! But, we can’t focus all of our attention to the new baby, so we have been paying extra special attention to Austin as well! Taking him on special day trips and vacations, which he will hopefully remember for a long time. We recently took a trip to Tennessee to one of those big indoor water parks, and it was so much fun! We also spent a whole day in the Smokey Mountain National Park, which was incredible!
Unfortunately in all of the excitement, someone always gets hurt. We always carry a large pack of Band-Aids with us, because you never know when these little scratches and cuts are going to happen.
I love this giant value pack from Band-Aid because it offers several different types of band-aids! There are waterproof ones, and fabric ones, and also some cute kid friendly ones which are perfect for my band-aid terrified toddler! He just loves Mickey Mouse so these entice him enough that he actually lets us put them on his boo-boos!
What is your family celebrating this summer? Any BIG goals you are hoping to accomplish?
Thanks for visiting!
