All eyes on me…

Recently we were given the opportunity to test out the new Lollipop smart baby camera. Now as we all know I am a mom of 4, and to be quite honest I have NEVER purchased a baby monitoring system, for some reason I have always felt like it was not on my priority list.  When I was pregnant with Elle I had the basic monitor that you could only hear the baby crying.  With the boys I never wanted to spend money on a camera because I knew that I would want a camera that was in color, with amazing video quality and awesome sound.  Most monitors of this nature were close to $200 and I just couldn’t bring myself to splurge on it.  Thankfully the Lollipop cam meets all of my needs plus bonus features for less than I ever imagined,  snag one here and this is why you will absolutely love it:

  1. Everything is  available via the app! Seriously I can view live footage, speak to anyone in the room where the monitor is located, play classical music to soothe my baby, review stats from the day all and so much more with this amazing app!image1 (6)
  2. The camera’s live feed is so amazingly clear! I seriously look at the feed when I’m at work and I’m amazed by the quality and the delay is only 3 seconds.   FullSizeRender (19)
  3. Automatic event recording.  So quick story… one night I heard Jagger crying , normally he wakes up wanting something to drink at 4 am which is cool with me because I am usually nursing Axel.  Well I got up and didn’t see him, when I walked to the hallway I saw him sitting on the steps, mind you it’s completely dark in our house.  Well later that day I was looking at the crying stats on my app and it had a log of Axel crying at 4am.  When I clicked on the video it showed Jagger crying in the living room on the floor holding his cup! This totally freaked me out, I could not believe he was downstairs crying all this time I thought he was just in the hallway, which doesn’t make it any better b/c he could have fallen down the steps but this video was an eyeopener for me! Check out the video on my instagram page
  4. The camera is so sleek and the set up is so easy!  I currently have the camera in our living room because that’s the main place the kids are playing when I am not home so I like to check in from time to time while I’m at work.  It keeps me at ease and helps with the baby blues.  IMG_2396

I have seriously fallen in love with this camera, not only does it make for a great babycam, but it’s an awesome nanny cam as well!  The flexibility of the camera makes it easy to move throughout your home.  I am totally satisfied with the new innovative product and I’m sure you will love it as well.  Until next time….

Memories

Life has been extremely hectic in our house, trying to adjust to 4 kids, a new baby, nursing , and just mom life in general.  While most of you are gearing up for Easter, I’m trying to remember what day it is…. I almost forgot that Axel turned 2 weeks old on Thursday and this was the perfect time to grab hold of our amazing memory cards from Milestone!  IMG_1035

We were gifted the new Over the Moon collection for Axel’s first year of memories.  This set contains a total of 30 memory cards.  I really love the color scheme in this packet; the black, white, beige, blue and yellow really compliment the graphics.  The memory cards range from 1 week to 1 year as well as sweet memories such as babies first smile, first words and blank cards to document your own special memory.

I love that each card has a date line so that parents are able to scribe the exact day each memory was captured.  With Axel being the last of our crew I am soaking up each and every memory.  These card will make it easy for me going forward!  I wish I had learned about these sooner to share with my other kiddo’s.  Be sure to grab a pack there are several themes to choose from here even a wedding pack!  And don’t worry mom’s if you missed the first year you can snag a pack for the toddler years or even activities from going to the movies,  visits to the zoo or to your child’s first visit to a museum.

IMG_1028I’m just thankful my life has gotten some what easier when it comes to capturing memories with the family!!! Which pack is your favorite?  I’m excited to know and tag me in pictures with your family memories. And make sure you check out the freebies, especially the My first Easter printable!  Until next time….
