Sunrise walks with my baby

I’m finding it difficult navigating our mornings. Do I keep our littlest guy in the house, while he squeaks and squacks at 5am and wakes up the entire household….including a toddler who NEEDS his sleep. Or do I head out in the backyard with our winter coats on (because before the sun rises, it’s about 6*C out there) and wait for it to get brighter?

It was easier in the summer when the sun rose earlier. But now it doesn’t get light until about 7am, and I don’t feel safe heading around in the pitch black. I even know the schedule of the crows! LOL! Seriously! I can predict it, they’re always on schedule. A whole slew of them fly overhead between 6:30-6:35. How do they know how to be so on time? It’s interesting. I do look up with my mouth closed, in case they do ….drop anything, if ya get what I’m saying.

Anyway, here’s a glimpse into some of our morning adventures….

Side note…my winter coat I’m wearing here is a men’s winter coat, by Wantdo. It comes in 21(!!!) colours. I went with the men’s because I liked their colour selection better and this shade of brown is my faveeee 👌🏻. If we’re getting technical, it’s marketed as a men’s waterproof ski jacket. They have a whole bunch of good stuff for affordable prices on their site – they sell on Amazon too. I got bebs a puffer coat for the winter, and I got my husband a green version of this coat, too.

Sustainable loungewear for kids

Not shown: toddler cleaning up all his toys so the little guy can’t play with them 😭🤣….at least he’s not subtly pushing him off the ottoman 🤷‍♀️. Siblings man.

Goumi products are made of organic cotton/bamboo pieces. They’re committed to only producing products that are sustainable, functional, and beautiful…. especially for boys! I mean, I love some trucks and dinos on their stuff…but not on everything ya’kno?

They even have women’s wear. I have a super long cardigan from them, cozy to cuddle up in when it’s 9 degrees in the mornings. Brr!

Kodak Mini 2 Retro printer

This gem of a portable printer is something we’ve been carting around with us in my backpack when we head off to adventures. The Kodak Portable Printer prints the perfect photos for kids to be touchin’ with their hands as the photos are fingerprint-proof, waterproof and a last a lifetime.

Have friends that have joined your adventure and want to print photos for them too? The Kodak app I have installed on my phone allows you to queue up to 5 photos at a time for the printer.

The device is about the size of a phone (though a bit thicker) which makes it completely perfect for a day trip to the woods, or bring with you on a vacation. I carry mine in a reusable cloth bag so it doesn’t get damaged by anything else in my backpack. The last photo printer I had was a good 15 years ago (and actually, I’m pretty sure I still have it kickin’ around somewhere)so I’m glad to get an upgrade with the Kodak!

The Kodak Mini 3 Square Retro 3×3″ Portable Printer is iOS and Android compatible. Do ya like it? Get one on Amazon  (15% off currently!).
