April Update

Half way through April? How? Less than two months until the wedding? No way!  
SO MUCH has been going on around here.  We've been so occupied with showing/selling our house, finding a new house, checking out new school districts and neighborhoods, and getting wedding details taken care of, the long spring break just wasn't long enough.

K3 turned 8 months.  He is pulling to stand and speed crawling all over the house.  He loves the recent nice weather since we've been going for walks and spending more time outside.  It's a whole new world.  And he is LOUD.  Babbling like crazy to anyone who will listen.  He has two tiny, new babies in his daycare class, and the baby fever is real, people.

O and JD started Little League.  Well, games don't start until this weekend, but they had a parade and practices.

I had a birthday and was spoiled to death by Keith.  I'm a lucky girl!

The older boys have become obsessed with this #disneyside app that turns your face into a Disney character.  What they don't know is that the app saves all their selfies to my phone.  It's pretty awesome.

Keith and I enjoy spending time with our friends and family at a couple's shower at a local brewery, but I'll post lots more wedding stuff as it gets closer.

Cardiff Travel Headrest

When I was approached to review Cardiff's Travel Headrest, my first question was about safety.  I know that it is not safe to have "extra" things in the car that could become dangerous in a crash, but I was assured that it meets the FMVSS213 and CMVSS213 standards.   

My kids definitely have a bobble head affect when they fall asleep in the car, and it looks so uncomfortable!

A three-way car nap is awesome, and this is how it starts with James.  A few more minutes and he's slumped over with his head hanging over the arm rest
Once assembled (I had a little trouble snapping the pieces together, but it's SOLID, high quality stuff), it was quick to install.  It can stay in the car all the time because the arms can swivel up and out of the way.  The arms of the headrest have soft, padded fabric sleeves that are removable and machine-washable for easy cleaning.
It didn't work with our high-back booster, but it was great with the BubbleBum.  I think I'll claim that seat on road trips so I can nap!

I'm continuing my week of car-related posts with MyBuckleMate.  Anyone with a kid in a 3rd row knows how important it is for that kid to be able to buckle themselves.  JD has been buckling himself in for a while now, but sometimes it takes a while, and time is precious in our morning routine!  After installing MyBuckleMate (which took seconds), he said that it was "easier because it doesn't move around as much".  It keeps the buckle propped up and easy to reach.

This is how the buckles usually look.
This is how MyBuckleMate props it up.
It even fits in the tight place next to JD's booster.  

I'll be posting car-related posts all week, ending with one big giveaway of all the items, including MyBuckleMate!  Enter below and keep checking back all week for more posts & chances to win.
