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.

Bobux has a new collection out!

My little guy and I sitting on the sidelines after a nursing session, watching bebs play in the wet sand getting all mucky dirty. He’s a pretty content baby, always happy until he’s not. Ha! He makes those 5 a.m. wake up calls easier when he’s constantly smiling and laughing for no reason at all.

He’s happy enough to just sit next to me here, and watch his big bro play around. The little shoes he’s wearing are the Aktiv Paint by Bobux. Speaking of Bobux, they recently launched their fall 2021 collection, and we lucked out and my two boys have a few pairs of shoes from them! Thanks a bunch, Bobux! We love’em. If you’ve been following me on my IG stories, I post about them often. They’re the only shoes my kiddos wear, besides hand-me-downs from one of our best friends.

Aren’t these rich navy colour hi tops (they’re the Hi Court) gorgeous? My toddler said they were comfier than he thought they’d be.

And these….oh boy. If you’re to get only ONE thing from the Bobux shop (and watch out for their amazing sales) it’s these Jodhpur boots. This is my kids third pair…and all of them are in this beautiful perfect brown shade.

Check out their new arrivals!

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!
