It’s interesting to see how much our diaper bag has changed over the course of a year. I started out using a shoulder diaper bag which after several months proved to be the biggest parenting mistake ever. Successfully carrying a baby/baby carrier and a shoulder bag should be an Olympic sport. We quickly realized that a backpack diaper bag was really the only way to go. Not only has the bag changed, but so much of what is in it has changed.

We went from having to have bottles galore to snacks galore. Really…ALL THE SNACKS. Snacks are key to not having a toddler meltdown and being wildly embarrassed in a public location.

I started writing out words for this but it’s just a little awkward for a topic like this so this post is going to be short, sweet and full of LOTS OF PICTURES with captions 🙂  I have included links in the captions.

This Skip Hop Diaper Backpack is lightweight, spacious, and a good gender neutral bag. You can find it here.

All my essentials are in there, I promise! And there is still so much more room!

 

Hands down my favorite sippy cup of all time. You can purchase here.

 

Of course, gotta have my own essentials in there too! This wallet is a few years old so I couldn’t find the exact one but this one here is similar.

 

This wet bag came as a two pack and have been lifesavers since Teagan was a newborn. Benadryl and Tylenol just in case. The Honest Company Healing Balm is great for diaper rash but also awesome for any cuts. Lastly, the diaper trash bags in case we don’t have a place to get rid of the poo haha!

 

Hand/Face Wipes for obvious reasons and you can never have enough kleenex.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was sent these wipes to test out by Happy Little Camper and I have to say right now I’m really loving them. They are all natural wipes. Teagan has sensitive skin so when her bum is getting a little red I use these because they have aloe vera. I wish they had a little more texture to them for those poopy diapers but it definitely doesn’t keep me from liking them. And you can get them on Amazon which is awesome. Find them here.

 

Snacks on snacks on snacks. You can find any of these in your local grocery store and this bib is thebomb.com. Go buy a similar one here.

 

Teagan is such a little monster when it comes to throwing her sippy cup and pacifier. It drives me absolutely bonkers. I was sent these two clips from HnyBaby and WE LOVE THEM. Both are so well made with amazing quality, durability and a lot of fun prints! The sippy cup strap has a non-slip material on the inside which is really helpful. I personally like this pacifier clip over other ones we have because the clip is plastic versus metal. Teagan always gets the metal ones off and then chews on them… poor baby teeth. She has yet to even be able to pull this one off. Everything in the shop is very reasonably priced. Go check out her shop here.

 

Always have to have an extra outfit. A bow because everyone always says how cute HE is…even when she is wearing all pink. And then a pair of socks for both of us in case we go to the indoor playground.

 

I keep my wipes in this Oxo Wipes case just because I find it slides in and out of my diaper bag easier than the small pack of wipes. We recently moved from Huggies Little Snugglers to Huggies Little Movers and have been really happy with them. She just moved to a size 5.

 

These little peel and stick disposable food mats are the absolute best. We are the type that take Teagan everywhere with us so if we are out eating it’s nice to be able to stick this onto the table and then at the end of a meal just take it off and have them throw it away. Power Crunch are my on the go snack and they are the best protein bar I’ve ever eaten.

 

I’m sure there are a few things I don’t have in there at the moment that I should like a changing mat and anti-bacterial spray but Teagan loves to take things out and hide them so they didn’t make it into the photo session. #momlife

  • Peace ✌🏼 out, Virginia! That’s a wrap on this beautiful chapter of our lives. We are so grateful for this home and the amazing memories we have been able to make. We brought both of these sweet babies home to this house so it is bittersweet. .
I’ve spent my entire life in Virginia but so excited for this new adventure and to be back in Cary’s home state! I can’t put into words how much we will miss our sweet friends that have become family and of course, my parents! But we can’t wait to host you all in our new home!! .

Thank you, VA! 💕💕

  • Packing up a weeks worth of supplements so I can pack all the bottles up for the big move next week. I know people (including my family) probably think I’m a complete whack for how many supplements I take daily but there is a method to the madness. My hope is that filling these little containers and taking good quality supplements daily to support all areas of my body will mean that later in life I’m not having to fill them with medications to stay alive and healthy. We are only given one body and I’m trying my best to keep it as healthy as I can so I’m here for my family longer! I’m curious to know, what supplements do you take daily to support your body?? 🥰

  • Today was Teagan’s last day of preschool in her 2 year old classroom. I’m not sure how the year flew by so fast but I’m even more shocked at how much she has grown and matured since the start of the school year. I wish so badly that I could freeze this age and bottled it up forever. She is such a kind, smart and beautiful girl and I pray she never changes or loses her joyful spirit 🥰 Swipe to see our first day of school picture 😂🤦🏼‍♀️ #teagankendall
  • This view will never get old. Seeing them play and laugh together has been the greatest joy of my life. I know it’ll only get better with time. Life might be chaotic with two young kids but I know without a doubt the greatest gift we could have ever given Teagan is this built in best friend 🥰 we hope everyone has a great weekend ❤️

  • Home of the free because of the brave 🇺🇸 We will never forget that freedom is never free and we enjoy these days with family because of those that paid the ultimate sacrifice protecting our freedoms. Our hearts are with those families today! ❤️ #memorialday2019 #godblessamerica #freedomisntfree #homeofthefreebecauseofthebrave #teagankendall #toddlermom #terrifictwos #almost3
  • Not the prettiest picture but this is our current reality. It hit us this morning that we only have 2 weekends left here in Virginia. We officially sell this house in a few days. It feels like a dream. I never imagined time moving so quickly. Things have been so busy and chaotic we haven’t really had a chance to even process the emotions that go along with closing a beautiful chapter of life. It’s bittersweet. I feel sad to leave our family and friends. I feel sad thinking Teagan won’t get sleepovers at my parents house. I feel sad we won’t be able to just pop over to a friends for a play date last minute. But I feel so excited to watch Teagan and Beau frolic around in their big backyard and have quality time with their aunt. I feel excited to explore a new city. I feel excited to make new friends and host our old ones in our new home. What a rollercoaster of emotions moving can be. 🌀

  • 8 M O N T H S🌈 I’m not sure how that happened. Still a big massive baby, still the happiest, sweet boy! Crawling around all over the place. Into everything. This month he really became obsessed with Teagan and everything she does. Has 4 teeth up top and 2 on the bottom. I wish I could say he was sleeping through the night but he still wakes up at least once. But I’m releasing myself from stressing over it, babies don’t keep so I’m just going to enjoy the nightly snuggle sessions while they are here. We sure do love you, baby Beau 💙
