7 Quick Takes: Bug, Diaper Bag and a Precious Dress

Joining with Jen for 7 Quick Takes.

{1} The stomach bug struck for the 4th (?) time this season for Carter on Tuesday.
Bless his sweet heart, after dinner he told me (keep in mind he is only 3) that he needed to rest on the couch and watch a movie.  He said he might need "the bucket" too.  After forty-five minutes of movie watching before bed (which isn't normal), I was questioning his honesty.  Without any more details, he was being truthful, and had no accidents.  He was sick every 30 minutes for almost 5 hours.  

{2} This guy got it, too.
Suffice it to say, he wasn't as clean.  All he could do was scream/cry while he yelled, "I just spit poo-poo!"
*as this is finally being posted, all but one person got it.  Gook luck, Jeremy!

{3} This little guy is standing on his own (for maybe 10 seconds).  Maybe he'll walk soon.  
Maybe not.

{4} I'm working on a little bachelorette (but more like a not-wild-at-all girls' night) for my sister.  Has anyone found any classy favors or cute little decorations that they've loved for the occasion?  Etsy has been awesome!

{5} The Land of Nod magazine came in the mail this week. They featured this diaper bag:
Matt and Nat Diaper Bag (Tan)
Pretty, isn't it?  I really don't need a new one, but I thought this one was neater than most!

{6} I've already posted it on Instagram, but I made some bread this week (it's a rare occurrence here).
I'm still amazed at how incredibly easy (no knead) it is, and how delicious it tastes.  It's a crusty but semi-dense French bread taste.  I think I'll post the full recipe next week!

{7} I asked a friend of mine recently if she had tips on raising girls.  Her response was, "Watch your pocketbook!"  Ha!  I can already tell it's true.  I see SO many cute things.  Speaking of, look at this from Gap:

I adore the whole Paddington Bear collection there.  I know I'm going to have problems (saying this while my boys run around in mismatched pjs)!

Have a great weekend, and don't forget to read other quick takes at Jen's place!


  1. LOVE that diaper bag! I always gravitate towards the ones that aren't traditional and look more like an actual purse lol

    Oh no! I hope everyone's feeling better now :-) The stomach thing has been going around everywhere here and I'm just praying it doesn't decide to strike here.

    1. Thanks!! My sneaky sister got it for me for my birthday. I cannot wait to try it out! I'm hoping I can carry it more since I can fit everything in it, and it looks like a huge purse, like you said!

      I hope you avoided the bug - it's no fun!!

    2. Love this diaper bag very much! Could I know the brand? Thank you. ^^

    3. It's Matt and Nat from!

  2. I just bought that dress for Avalon, I can't wait for it to come in the mail. I am planning on taking her 9 months pictures in it :) And I hope everyone is feeling better, nothing worse than sick babies!

  3. Love the pics of your boys, such cuties. Sorry the stomach bug hit--no fun!

    1. Thank you!! They are fun little guys. Oh, it wasn't fun, but I guess it happens to everyone - yuck! Hope you're great!

  4. I was just drooling over the paddington bear collection myself this week! I'm Stingy McStinge and I feel positively weak when it comes to cute baby girl clothing!

  5. I never noticed it before, that each of your boys has different color eyes. What's left after brown, green and blue? I'll bet whatever it is that your girl will end up with that color.

  6. It's true - girl clothes are an addiction. My boys get what they need - girls get the clothes I want!
