Mommy & Baby

Hey friends!

I love going to the park during the summer time, the weather is beautiful, we can bring picnic food and Liam gets to play on the playground and in the sandbox!  For Father’s Day, I got Justin a picnic basket and blanket because he loves “experiences.”  It’s been a great way to spend time together as a family and enjoy the outdoors.

Liam is currently obsessed with construction vehicle toys; he loves his excavator that he can use to “dig dirt” in the sand.  He can get pretty messy though over the course of eating snacks and playing which is why I’m so excited to tell you about JOHNSON’S® HEAD-TO-TOE® baby cleansing cloths.  They’re perfect for when your child needs a wipe down but you’re not able to give them a full bath.  They’re kind of like an “in-between” bath! One big advantage is that JOHNSON’S® HEAD-TO-TOE® baby cleansing cloths are about twice* the size of average wipes so you only need one cloth to wipe down your child’s whole body!

*2x larger than JOHNSON’S® baby hand & face wipes.
