Why We Love Freshly Picked

Let me count all the ways we love Freshly Picked moccasins!  Back in 2013 when Charlie was my littlest I was searching high and low for shoes that fit his wide thick feet and coming up short, especially in the cuteness department.  It's fairly easy to find wide shoes for kids but what I was having trouble with was the thickness of his foot from top to bottom.  It also seemed like I was either finding shoes that were functional but not at all cute or very cute but not at all functional.  That was until I discovered FP moccs:) These moccs fit all types of little kids feet in all shapes and sizes and are both cute and functional!  The leather stretches over time so if your pair are a little tight at first don't sweat it, they will stretch and literally form to your childs feet.  I personally like to order a size up so that they have room to grow and trust me if you do order up they will still stay on!  
I also love all the colors and styles they have to choose from and most of them are gender neutral!  My favorite are the Green Camo (pictured below) for the boys but love seeing little ladies in them too!  If you haven't noticed the FP team work hard to bring us fresh colors, styles and designs all the time and they hit it out of the park every time!  The Care Bears Collections is my current favorite.  All the heart eyes for those Sunshine bear and grumpy bear moccs!
These moccasins are the perfect shoe for little ones learning to crawl and walk.  The combination of the durable leather, all around light weight and soft soles make learning to walk so much easier. 
And lastly, they are the easiest shoe to slip on! With three kids getting out the door in a timely fashion is nearly impossible.  Not having to tie, strap or buckle shoes is a huge plus in my book and trust me if daddy can slip them on quickly anyone can:)     
Congratulations to Kasey B. who won my Freshly Picked giveaway, a pair of moccasins of her choice for her little one!  Thank you so much to everyone who entered and thank you for following along with me here on the Reeder & Co Show!  I really appreciate it! XOXO

Newborn Must Haves

Since last week it was all about the Mamas I wanted to share some of my favorites for the babes!  Just a quick round up of things that have worked really well for Zac these past couple months. Enjoy!
One / Two / Three / Four / Five / Six

Little Faces has the cutest tees!  Their "Little" collection is perfect for announcing your pregnant, baby's gender or for baby's arrival!  They sent us the big, middle and littlest for the boys that I posted on IG last week (so fitting for my littlest Reeders) and also the big brother, promoted and little brother tees that I'll share soon too! They also have the cutest toddler clothing including these skrompers (skirt & romper) that I love for little girls!

We have been getting good use out of our On-The-Go Baby Dome by Fisher Price.  It has been perfect while poolside this summer.  It keeps the sun, heat and bugs out and Zac loves chillin' in it!

I've been using our Modswad Woombie since Charlie was born but Zac has been loving it the most.  He wears it every single night and sleeps like a rock for 9-11 hrs straight! This thing has been my biggest must have with Zac and it just goes to show how all babies are different because Charlie and Brad didn't use it nearly as much.

I've shared about our Covered Goods car seat covers many times before but I really can't say enough good things about them!  I have the this stripped one and the grid print and love them so much. You can literally use these things at least 6 different ways, so functional!

I'll be counting all the reasons why I love Freshly Picked Moccasins next week when I announce the winner of my giveaway on Instagram (@reederandco) going on now through Monday.  I wish I was Oprah on her car giveaway episode. "You get moccs! And you get moccs! And you get moccs! Everybody gets moccs!" lol

Lastly, my all time favorite blanket from Copper Pearl.  I love it even more than my Aden + Anais swaddles.  It's larger and stretchy and comes in the cutest patterns.  I bring it everywhere with us!

Don't forget to check back next week after entering my FP giveaway to see if you've won a pair of moccs of your choice!  Have a great weekend! XO

New Momma Must Haves

I've rounded up some fun faves that have totally helped me through these past two months!  Whether you're a first time mom or a new mom of three like me, these cool products should totally be on your must have list.

Converse Chuck Taylor Shoreline Sneakers-  I've had these shoes for over a year now but haven't worn them nearly as much as I have these past two months.  You can literally wear them with anything and trust me I do; from jeans and a tee to summer dresses or to the pool!  I love that they don't tie so they're super easy to throw on as your walking out the door with 3 kids, a car seat, your purse, diaper bag, snacks, the kitchen sink...

L'Oreal Colour Riche Matte Lipsticks-  I don't wear lipstick all that often but when I do I love this matte colour riche collection!  The neutrals are awesome and the Blake Lively Collection has the perfect shade of Red, Blake's Red!

Lalabu Soothe Shirt- The soothe shirt is another one of my favorites.  Super convenient in that you don't have to lug around a mile long baby wearing wrap or big bulky carrier.  This shirt is so cute on it's own or with a baby in it!  It almost fits like spanx so it's very flattering and it's breast feeding friendly.  Double win!

BootayBag-  OBSESSED with BootayBag!  Ok, how fun is this for all us new moms who are feeling a little uncomfortable in our post baby body?  A monthly subscription of 2 beautiful panties.  You choose your favorite styles and size and they ship the goods, for free!  You don't know what you're going to get but you can peep the last months bag and trust me they won't disappoint:) It's a great little monthly pick me up!

Sphynx 3-in-1 Razor- Another convenient product!  This 3-in-1 portable razor has everything you need for a quick spot shave.  Let's face it, we're always rushing while we're in the shower because #kids and it never fails, we miss a spot!  It's got 2 razors, a refillable water sprayer (which I usually fill with cucumber water) and a shea butter-based moisturizing shave bar.  Perfect to throw in your diaper bag and go!

Hope you found something new and fun here!
 A word of advise to all my new mama friends. Whether you have one or ten kids, there is no such thing as a perfect mom so relax, enjoy the ride and give yourself grace.  You're doing great!

Zac's 2 Month Update

It's been two months of snuggles with this chunky monkey!  He is growing like a weed at 17lbs and 26in. He's off the charts for both height and weight and definitely off the charts for cuteness!

I would say we are pretty well adjusted by now.  He's been consistently sleeping through the night this past week so I think it might be time to move him out of our room and into his.  I still wake up to pump in the middle of the night and I'm always scared I'm going to wake him up. I think being in his own room will help give him a peaceful nights sleep, I'm just nervous to have him so far away from me.   I've got the camera all set up and ready to go, I just need to make a move!

We are starting to see a little personality too!  He's been smiling and starting to coo and talk to us.  I'm looking forward to this next month as his interactions or more fun and playful!  Charlie especially loves talking to him now and trying to get him to smile.  He's such a good big brother and what a huge help he is!

He likes tummy time and has great neck and upper body strength.  He still has zero patience when he's hungry and gives zero f*$#'s if you have things you need to get done because he wants held, and walked with and rocked twenty four seveeeeeeeen.  I don't mind one bit though, I'll hold him forever.

Happy 2 months, Zac.  You rock our world!

Zac's Nursery

I'm excited to share a few pictures of Zac's nursery! This has been my favorite room to decorate so far. I love the rugby striped accent wall and the cool blue and grey tones. The Zachary sign I made myself with some scrap wood I found in the garage that I stained and added letters to. So easy and super cute!  I'm still on the hunt for the perfect rustic piece with a cute saying on it for the other wall but for now I'm really happy with how it's coming together.  Even though he's not sleeping in here at night yet we still get good use of it.  I love coming in here, defusing some essential oils and rocking him to sleep.  He naps longer when he's in here too because it's upstairs away from all the ruckus his big brothers make.  I also love that this room stays pretty tidy compared to the rest of the house so it's a nice spot to come relax with him in!

Happy hump day, evenyone!  I hope you're enjoying the week! XO
