My Top 5 Baby Items of the Week!

Each week I want to give you all my favorite baby items. This week in my Citrus Lane box I got a couple really awesome items and I thought this would be the perfect thing to share.
Here are my top picks of the week…

Top 5 Baby Essentials

1. Aden & Anais Bamboo Muslin Security Blanket  2. Sophie Giraffe  3. Halo Sleep Sack   
4. MamaRoo Classic Bouncer  5. Sleepers

Both of my daughters like to put blankets over their heads to fall asleep. These Muslin security blankets are breathable and light which makes me feel a bit better when they want to cover their faces. 
I think we can all agree that Sophie is the best teether ever!
Sleep Sacks are a must for bedtimes when it's chilly. 
The MamaRoo bouncer both my girls lived in.
And last but not least sleepers, they are cozy and cute.

Surviving a Restaurant with 3 under 3!

Don't forget to follow me on Instagram and Facebook for more frequent updates and pictures! 
When you having three children going out to eat can be a somewhat terrifying mission.  We are officially out numbered and two of those children are babies making their need for us all consuming at times.

Ashlyn's outfit: Southern Tots, Headband: Similar
Ace's Shirt: The Printed Palette, Shorts: U.S. Polo
 
Branden and I have only taken the kids out to eat with family, never just us and them. We attempted it on Father's day but with the wait we said screw it and went to lunch later with my family. We all took turns holding a baby or entertaining Ace. It worked out but the thought of doing that alone made me feel more than overwhelmed. 
This morning, though, I said "let's go to Crackle Barrel!"
Bran has been wanting to go ever since Father's day so I figured since it wasn't Sunday it wouldn't be too busy. We got there and it was only a 15 minute wait. Score!

Everly's Romper: Southern Tots
Headband: Similar
We got in, Everly had her bottle and passed out and we were set. Ashlyn loves feeding herself so we got biscuits to start and she chomped on those. Ace was overall really well behaved with only some minor reprimands. 
I seriously felt like we were finally coming out of that crazy fog of constant crying and whining for attention. Sure, it's not always constant but when you go out and they all need your attention that is exactly how it feels. 
I will say I knew it would be hard having 3 children under the age of 3 but I think you can never quite get it till you are there. I knew the first 3 months after Everly came it was going to be somewhat of a nightmare and if we could just get through that we would be ok and I definitely see that happening. Everly though had a lot more issues than Ace and Ashlyn as a newborn so that made it even more difficult but now she is a happy little baby and Ashlyn is such a sweet girl that they just make life so much more incredible. Ace is the cutest big brother to them too.
I think we are finally getting this parenting of three down!
