little things : winter water factory

since we get outside almost everyday over the summer, we’re big fans of tees that are not only soft and comfy but stylish and cool as well. I’ve always been a big fan of the tees from Winter Water Factory, so when they sent over Wolf {and baby brother!!} a few things to test out, we were pretty excited. Wolf has a soft spot for airplanes so I picked out this rad plane tee for him. he likes it so much, he would wear it every day if I let him!

Winter Water Factory is known for their fun graphic tees. plus, they’re all made in the USA and organic – bonus. have a look at their shop to see more goodies. warning: the baby stuff is insanely cute!!!

unruly things : it's a BOY!!

BOY!!! that’s right – brothers! I wanted a special way to announce this little babe and couldn’t think of anything more fun than a bunch of big balloons. so we braved a super windy day and headed to the park for a few pics. at first the news that we were having another little boy was hard. I’d always pictured myself with one boy and one girl. but I can’t say I didn’t have a hunch already that it was a boy even if I’d been holding out for the news of a baby girl. I’ve been getting used to the idea of having two little boys and the more and more I think about it, the more excited I am to be the mama to two wonderfully sweet little boys. plus, I think Wolf will just love having a little brother!

I’m almost 21 weeks pregnant, which means I’m over the hump! hopefully this little guy doesn’t play the waiting game that Wolf did and comes closer to his due date. we’re still looking at mid-September and couldn’t be more thrilled. now to think about names!

seventh generation : au naturel

Unruly Things for Seventh Generation

when you think about the products that you’re putting on your little babe, you want nothing but the best, right? organic and natural but most importantly, toxin free. best put – au naturel.

even though Wolf is now potty trained and only wearing diapers at night, we choose to diaper him in Seventh Generation diapers because for one, they not only worked the best with his sensitive skin but we felt better knowing that they are free of fragrances, petroleum-based lotions, chlorine processing and bleach.

Seventh Generation put together an amazing little video called Au Naturel promoting their diapers and it’s way cute – check it out here.

as you know, I’ve partnered with Seventh Generation to help spread the word about their Toxic Freedom Fighter Campaign. the Toxin Freedom Fighters Campaign is collecting signatures, with a goal of reaching 100,000, and delivering them to Congress on April 30, 2014. and they’re ALMOST THERE! the signatures will strengthen the movement behind chemical reform and will encourage that decision-makers change the necessary laws.

thanks to those of you who have already signed and supported Seventh Generation’s fight for safer chemicals. if you haven’t signed the petition, have a look at the campaign here. there’s only about 3000 signatures left until they reach their goal.

little things : the second registry

Unruly Things | Wolf : picture by Leah Verwey for Alyson Brown

did you put together a registry for your second child? most times you create a baby registry the first time around so that your friends and family can help you out by purchasing the things you need for your new bundle of joy. but the second time around, since most likely you’ve got most of what you need already, I’ve always wondered about the social awkwardness of a second registry. (more…)


little things : here comes number two!!

Unruly Things | here comes #2!

get ready world – this kid is going to be a big brother!! I’m due mid-September with our second child and could not be more thrilled. I posted this pic on Instagram over the weekend and I know many of you already guessed it. it’s difficult to hide when you’ve got babies on the brain. plus I’ve popped so much sooner with baby #2 than with Wolf so I’ll share a bump pic soon. as I enter my second trimester, I’m feeling much more alive and I’ve finally gotten my energy back. to be perfectly honest, so far this pregnancy has been even easier than the first {which was pretty easy in itself!} Wolf is pretty excited, for as much as we think he really understands. he’s convinced he’s going to get a baby sister and tries to peek down my shirt to find her. me, I think it’s a little boy. we’ll find out for sure late April.

I’ve got a few exciting kiddo related partnerships coming up this year and I can’t wait to share more with you next week.

this is looking to be a wonderful year, friends!

these photos are from our early days with Wolf. he was so small! hard to believe he’ll be three in just a few short months.
