What We're Reading Lately |

I thought I would share our favorite children’s books with you guys today! It honestly feels like we have so many books lying around at home, but I swear you can never have enough! It’s always a great activity with little ones, and it’s so good for them. I’m so excited to see Piper have a love of reading. Her favorite books seem to constantly be changing, but below are some staples in our book reading routine lately.

Dragons Love Tacos – This one is by far her top favorite … and mine too! It’s such a cute book. Piper practically has it memorized and will repeat the pages with us.

Uni the Unicorn – This is a fun book about friendship. I think Piper mostly loves it because there’s a ball on one of the pages and she always tries to find it, ha.

The Wonderful Things You Will Be – I think everyone needs this book in their collection. It is such a sweet, endearing book. Plus, you can seriously take some fashion tips from the kids in this book, ha. All so cute.

Lily the Unicorn – There are so many fun pictures in this book, that it fascinates Piper every time. There’s always something new to see that you missed before!

It’s Time to Sleep My Love – This one is perfect for bedtime. All of Nancy Tillman’s books are so great!

Goodnight Gorilla – This one doesn’t have many words, which means little kids can easily learn the book and read it along with you! Piper loves looking at the pictures and naming all the animals

There’s a Wocket in My Pocket – You can never go wrong with Dr. Seuss! This one is so fun.

Barnyard Dance – This one is fun to sing, and dance to! We love all of Sandra Boynton’s books!

Go, Dog, Go! – Piper is obsessed with dogs (and has been as long as we can remember), so naturally this is one of her favorites.

Dear Zoo – this one has flaps to open that reveal animals underneath, so it’s a great interactive book that I’m sure all kids would love! It’s been one of our favorites since Piper was at least 9 months old!

Piper at 2 Years

2 Year old Update | Love Lola
2 Year old Update | Love Lola

I’m finally getting around to Piper’s 2 year update! She turned 2 back in November, and this is such a fun (and challenging) age.


The girl can eat. She’s really not picky and will eat most anything. We worked on getting her to eat broccoli and eggs for probably the last year, and she’ll finally eat them without any fuss (insert fist bump). Her favorite food right now are cheese sticks. She’ll wake up in the morning asking for one, haha.


The girl can also sleep ;). She’s still in her crib but has climbed out twice. During her naptime one day I heard a door open and little footsteps, and I looked down the hall to see a little toddler, to which she responded “hi mama.” The next morning she climbed out and greeted us in the kitchen. It hasn’t happened again, though. But I know it’s time to move her to a big girl bed. To be honest, I’m kind of dreading it. It’ll be a transition for all of us, but the plan is to make the big move before the baby comes in March.


She is starting to talk so much. Her language exploded right around her second birthday. She’ll repeat pretty much anything you say. My favorite thing she says right now is when she’s calling for Scofield she’ll scream “Hey Babe!” haha. I realized how much I must do that ;). When she wants you to open a door she says “Open door me,” or to ask you to rock her to sleep she says “Dada rock you.” I love two year old talk! It’s so sweet. She’s also started saying “you guys.” Not sure where she got that one from. But at night she’ll say “good night guys,” or “I love you guys,” or my favorite “good job guys.” Haha


She got a little piano and microphone for Christmas, and I wasn’t sure how’d she react to it but she LOVED it. She screams into the microphone and sounds like a dying whale. It’s pretty fun … although I’m sure it’ll get old soon ;) She’s also got some dance moves.

Anyway, those are just the highlights. There’s definitely lots of time out and discipline, and reading books/having conversations on parenting. Life is crazy, but wonderful!

Grocery Essentials With Shipt

Grocery Essentials with Shipt |

The amount of things on my to-do list daily seem endless at times, so I’m always looking for ways to make life a little easier and to give me more free time with my family. That’s why I’m so excited to have discovered Shipt and all they have to offer. Shipt is an on demand grocery delivery service that started in Alabama, but is now serving more than 50 cities, including Greenville! You simply download the app or go online, and you can pick the store you want to shop at, then you place your order online. When you checkout, you pick what time you would like your groceries to arrive a Shipt employee brings them right to your door! Amazing, right!?

I love that you can see the total before you pay, allowing you to add or remove things from your cart if needed. We have a pretty strict grocery budget, but I struggle to stay in budget in the store, so using Shipt has really helped keep me on track.
