Baby Boy Gift Ideas for Holidays & Birthdays

Baby Boy Gift Ideas for Holidays & Birthdays

Babies can be hard to shop for. My little guy is almost 2 and I still don’t really know what to get him for Christmas. Our family enjoys swapping gifts because it’s a fun family tradition but my little man has a short attention span, loves throwing things, and really just wants to run around our yard. So what to choose for a 2-year-old baby boy’s Christmas gift? Pacific Baby insulated bottles are practical baby boy gift ideas. My 2-year-old loves drinking his milk and juice by himself.

5 Ways Kids Can Learn Through Play

5 Ways Kids Can Learn Through Play

In our house, preschool and kindergarten feel a lot more like structured play time than educational lessons.

I try to mix up our school activities so learning is fun! Here are a few ways my kids learn through play.
