NatureBox Giveaway

I’m working with NatureBox again today with a giveaway for two of my readers to win!

NatureBox Snacks

I always have a snack in my bag in case I’m out with the kids and they need a little something, and on days when I teach, I make sure to bring something to tide me over until I get home. I leave the house right after breakfast, and then when I get back in the early afternoon, I have to nurse the baby before I can make lunch for myself. I usually grab something from our NatureBox delivery because the snacks are healthy and tasty, and they have enough variety (over 100 options!) that I don’t get bored bringing the same thing every time.

NatureBox is a subscription service that delivers your choice of snacks each month, with free shipping in the continental US. They work with a nutritionist to insure that the snacks are made with no high fructose corn syrup, partially hydrogenated oils, or trans fats. No artificial sweeteners, flavors, or colors either. Each bag has 3-5 servings, and you can choose different snacks each month so you’re always discovering something new (or you can stick to your favorites, of course). Brandon loves their Sea Salt Pop Pops so we always choose that for one of our snacks, and then I like to mix up the other options to try something new each time.

That’s a Wrap

This has been an excellent week for Calvin to go through sleep regression! You’d think a baby could get his act together by now, am I right?

Anyway, we’re on the other side of our big photo shoot. The house looked amazing, and I can’t wait to share the details and show everything to you! The photos are for a Christmas issue, so the good stuff will have to wait until it’s out, but here’s the tiniest of sneak peeks.

Christmas Wreath

There was garland everywhere, wreaths in the windows, a fresh tree in the library (complete with tons and tons of wrapped empty boxes beneath), and a cute little tree in the play room. Christmas just seems to come earlier and earlier each year, doesn’t it? Right after Easter, in this case.

Six months old! Starting to sit by himself. Two teeth, on the bottom. Ready to try some baby food. Doing the inchworm scoot. Still the happiest baby ever.

(I’ll be taking a photo of Calvin sitting in the Eames rocker and wearing his pin each month until he’s two years old. I also took monthly photos of his sister, Eleanor, and his brother, August.)
