Four Months with Hogan and a Giveaway!

Hogans Jeans: Hudson Kids Hogans Onesie: Under Armour (I buy a lot of these at Nordstrom Rack, Nordstrom and Amazon.)

Hogan Lawrence is 4 months old today and I’m ugly crying!😭 I feel like it was just yesterday that we brought him home from the hospital and we were such newbs with him…well we are still newbs but we’re at least a little more experienced now.

Everyone says it and it really is true, you can’t even blink for a second, they grow so fast! Luke and I can’t remember life before Hogan and we sure can’t imagine life without him. He brings us an insane amount of joy and we love being his mom and dad. His 4 month check up is next Friday and we can’t wait to see how tall he is, how much he weighs and hopefully get the approval to start him on solids. In honor of his 4 month birthday I’m sharing 4 things about Hogan and I’m also doing a giveaway of my favorite mom bag. Read on for details on how to enter the giveaway.

1. He loves to talk, squeal and scream! This has to be our favorite thing he is doing right now. It can be a little embarrassing when he starts screaming at the top of his lungs in a restaurant but it makes him and usually everyone around us, once they realize he’s doing it to be funny, smile so big. He loves to try to mimic us, it’s so cute, you may have seen the video I posted on my Facebook page of him mimicking me, I couldn’t stop laughing. 2. EVERYTHING goes in his mouth! Our hands, his hands, his blankies, his clothes if he can manage, the dogs nose if she is close enough, just anything and everything possible. I’m not sure if it’s because he is starting to teeth or if it’s just a 4 month old thing. Whatever it is, he has mastered it. 3. The boy likes his beauty rest. He occasionally will sleep for 12 hours straight. His usual run is about 8-10 hours and we normally have to wake him up to eat around 9am if he hasn’t gotten up yet. Once he has his 1st bottle in the morning he goes back to sleep for about 2 hours. Luke and I feel extremely blessed and know that this could stop at anytime so we’re living it up while we can. 4. Hogan likes to be sitting up or standing up. Gone are the days of carrying him around like a baby. He is extremely alert and wants to be involved in whatever we’re doing. The only time he is semi okay with laying back is when he’s watching tv, he LOVES tv. I’m still trying to decide if that’s a good or bad thing but it’s often how I get anything done, like writing this blog post. He prefers watching football or golf but will settle for the Disney channel.

^ I’m carrying my Logan and Lenora purse here.

Leggings: Zella These are my all time favorite leggings, they are high waisted and really suck everything in!

Shoes: Converse I love the color and texture of these Converse. They keep clean much easier than the traditional pair.

Purse: Logan and Lenora

ow, onto the giveaway. I found Logan and Lenora about 2 weeks after I gave birth to Hogan and immediately ordered one because I love their fun prints and they are super affordable. All of their bags are waterproof which I thought was great since we often go to the lake in the summer and I knew I would need something to ensure my breast pump stayed dry. They have a big variety of bag sizes and prints and I personally bought the hobo bag in white with black spots. It became my favorite purse when it was put to the test on day out with Hogan. I was running behind, as usual. I forgot that I needed to stop and get gas before Hogan and I met my mom and sister for dinner. So we pulled into Costco and knowing that Hogan would be hangry as soon as we got to the restaurant I went ahead and started heating up his bottle while we were pumping gas. The hot water cup I use for his bottle doesn’t fit in my car cup holders so I just kind of had it sitting on my console. Forgetting I had it sitting there I finished pumping gas and pulled away quickly. Next thing I know, there is piping hot water all in my front seat and all over my purse. Needless to say I was so thankful I had my Logan and Lenora waterproof bag that day!

To thank my loyal readers and hopefully gain a few new readers I decided to give one of these bags away. This is in no way sponsored by Logan and Lenora nor am I an affilliate of theirs, I just really love this brand and wanted to share it with you all!

I bought the Logan and Lenora Hobo bag in Meow print to give away. This bag would be great for moms or for any lady looking for a fun and versatile bag. I also love this print for fall!
