mamaRoo for me, mamaRoo for you!

Disclosure: 4moms sent me a mamaRoo to review. I am not being compensated for my review. Thoughts 100% mine. I love this company and I know you all will too, if you don’t already!

Something awesome is happening over at 4moms. They just launched their brand new and improved mamaRoo! Being a second time mom, I’m up to my ears in baby and toddler gear, but by now I have a “veteran” opinion on what you really need.

I used to think things like the mamaRoo weren’t really necessities…. until the mamaRoo came to live with us. She kind of looks and moves around like a baby UFO, but it’s baby magic. Something about it is calming and soothing, even still to the five month old girl that occupies it! I wish they made one in my size.


Let’s face it – a mom’s luxury is having an extra set of hands. A mom of two’s luxury is…. having an extra set of hands. While the mamaRoo may not be a literal set of hands, it provides temporary help for me and comfort for the little one. It also doesn’t hurt that this machine of wonder doesn’t take up a lot of floor space and is aesthetically pleasing to the eye.


The mamaRoo has 5 different motions and has a built in speaker. One thing the mamaRoo got in it’s update is Bluetooth capabilities and an accompanying iPhone app! This is especially handy if I’m across the room handling a toddler emergency, which mostly consists of getting snacks or taking her to the potty.


Basically, 4moms knows what’s up when they developed this glorious UFO baby voodoo magic contraption. Even better? I’m giving one away today!

Caroline – 5 Months

Caroline 5 Months Old

Sweet Caroline turned five months old on Saturday! Caroline Lately: Still has the most epic hair in all the land. I feel like it’s just getting thicker, too! And I kid you not, it’s grown completely down the back of her neck… it’s like a mullet-ish bob! Without fail, someone always says something about her hair when we’re out and about. I have a feeling it will just be what she’s known for. Epic hair. I’m cool with that. Growing…

Body After Second Baby (Part 1)

body after second baby

Now that I’m almost five months postpartum, I feel like it’s time to start talking about getting back into pre-baby shape. It is one of my goals to fit back into my pre-pregnancy clothes this year, but not killing myself while doing it. I’m not dying to be OMGSKINNY (although I wouldn’t hate that, ha!), I want to feel healthy and not have to buy a new wardrobe. I gained 48 pounds when I was pregnant with Kennedy. Losing the…

My Life, Unfiltered


When Instagram came out a few years ago, I was one of the first people on it. I didn’t know what the heck I was doing. I posted pictures of stuff, chose a filter, and posted it. In fact, here’s my first instagram picture (taken on my old iPhone 3S, no less!): Talk about artistic. I’m a real natural. Back then, nobody really cared what was on Instagram. It seems nowadays I find myself playing the comparison game. Why don’t…
