Noodle and Boo

^^This is Tally's face when his teeth hurt, his little lips all pursed! So sad.^^

^^ K side note, please excuse our disgusting grout!  I have seriously tried everything to get that to go away, I guess it's just one of the joys of apartment living.  Suggestions more than welcome. ^^

^^ Who could stay mad at that face?? ^^
Monday morning was such a "Monday".  I went to change Tally's diaper and low and behold he had his first big blowout for me (thanking my lucky stars we made it this far)!  You guys, it was up to his SHOULDERS!  I wanted to cry haha.  The worst part about it is Tally has gotten so busy and thinks it's hilarious to flip over and crawl away while I'm changing his diaper....SO not cool with poop all over his little bum!  haha!  Needless to say, we went straight for the bath.  I was especially annoyed because I had been feeling ambitious and I had us both all ready for the day before 10am and had planned to go to the grocery store!  However, one thing you learn to do as a mother is just roll with the punches!  I let Tally play in the bath for a bit, lathered him up with lotion, called up my girlfriends and we had an impromptu lunch date.  Much better than errand running!  Plus it ended up snowing so I was kind of super glad I wasn't hauling grocery bags out to my car.    

This little mishap also gave us a great excuse to try out the bubble bath and hair/body-wash from Noodle & Boo.  When they reached out to me to review some of their products I may or may not have squealed! If I've ever talked to you about baby products then you probably know how much I LOVE their lotion.  It smells heavenly (seriously everyone tells me Tally smells so good), it doesn't dry out their skin, and it lasts FOREVER!  We use a different brand for the newborns at the hospital and I have to say it just doesn't cut it for me.  It makes my skin (and I think the baby's skin) super dry! I don't mind your typical baby wash for a day to day basis but after trying the bubble bath and hair/body-wash from Noodle & Boo I think I might be converted.  Especially as we move into winter.  I'm already noticing random dry spots on Tally and I think he needs a body wash that is more moisturizing and sensitive on his soft skin.   

I've also tried the reed diffuser and I love how subtle it is.  I keep it in the nursery and it just makes it smell fresh and I don't know... baby-ish??  You know what I mean.  Just that heavenly newborn scent.  Anyways, I was talking with my girlfriend and we both agreed that the Noodle & Boo lotion (or any other product for that matter) makes such a great baby shower gift.  It pairs so cute with one of those adorable animal hood newborn towels, or bath toys!  Or I mean...just buy it for yourself cause it is seriously THAT good.
