How To: Stay Comfortable as a Mom-@headtotoechic-Head to Toe Chic

Charlotte is on the move and running all over the place! We love to spend time outside in our backyard blowing bubbles, or we’ll spend time at the park or at the science museum. With Charlotte being very mobile, I have to make sure that I’m as comfortable as I can be. When it comes to what to wear you can either find me in a pair of leggings, a basic tee, and an army jacket, or a pair of distressed jeans and a graphic tee. I’ve also accumulated quite the sneaker collection now, and I always wear a pair whenever I’m with Charlotte.

Speaking of the kiosk, I recently used the newly designed kiosk at Walmart and it was such a great experience! It’s really easy to use, you  just take off your shoes, place your feet on the mat, and press start. It will then go through three steps with you where it will measure your arch, pressure points, and foot length. First it will measure your feet in a standing position, and then you just have to lean forward on your feet to move the yellow circle into the green target. After that, it will measure each foot to simulate how you walk. You’ll lift your right foot off the mat while holding onto the bars in front of you. You just have to lean forward again to move the yellow circle into the green target. Then place your right foot back down. You’ll then repeat this same thing while lifting your left foot off the mat. For the last step you answer a question about your weight and you are all set! The screen will then display which insert is best for you, and the inserts are located right at the kiosk which is really convenient.

Toddler Meal Ideas

Toddler Meal Ideas-@headtotoechic-Head to Toe Chic

Coming up with what to feed your toddler can seem so overwhelming at first! Looking back, it seemed a lot easier when I was nursing and then when I was feeding Charlotte baby food because it was all so straight forward. Now, I feel like I’m juggling with making sure Charlotte is eating enough and also eating the right foods. She also has a lot of opinions about what she eats now that she’s a toddler, but overall she’s a really good eater (minus the fact that she isn’t a fan of meat other than deli turkey). Today I wanted to share some ideas on what to feed your toddler for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and also snacks. Also, a side note that these are the plates, bowls, and bibs that we love.

Eggs, toast, and blueberries

Waffle (our favorites are by Kodiak Cakes) with peanut butter and strawberries

Oatmeal and bananas

Pancakes with pure maple syrup and peaches

Lunch:

The Best Dresses from Amazon

Today I wanted to share the best dresses that I’ve found from Amazon recently! I mentioned here about my love for shopping on Amazon, and that I’ve found a lot of clothing on there lately. I just make sure to size up, and only buy things that have free shipping and free returns. Here’s a round-up of my 5 favorite dresses that I’ve found on Amazon, and they are all budget friendly too which is always a bonus.

Summer Family Photos

One priority that I’ve made since having Charlotte is making sure that we have family photos taken of us frequently! Charlotte is constantly changing so much, and I love that we have captured family photos of her throughout each stage so far (you can see past photos here and here). I know a lot of people don’t get in front of the camera with their children, but I think it is so important. Make sure that you’re getting photos of your family at least once a year if you can! I’m so lucky to have GloryRoze Photography as a friend, and she captures the best pictures of Charlotte and always makes her smile.
