Sunday Surf: My Favorite Blog Posts of the Week

by Charise Rohm Nulsen

I hope you are all having a fun weekend! We’ve had an exciting one so far. On Saturday morning, I was thrilled and honored to find out that I am the SITS Girl in the Spotlight this weekend. Welcome to all of my new SITS-tahs stopping by for the first time!

Baby, Hubby, and I also made the most of Friday’s snowstorm by doing some Spring snowshoeing.

Right before a snowstorm blew in and pelted us with giant, wet flakes!

Our other bit of excitement was that Baby took the first bath of his life where he did not cry like we were torturing him! He really enjoyed it and actually played. I feel like a whole new world has opened up to us!

It's a miracle!

Now that you’ve heard about our weekend, here are my recommendations for your Sunday blog reading. Enjoy!

Congrats on being featured by the Sits Girls! You deserve it. I gotta ask, where did you find that baby bath? I’m going to be needing one shortly, and if it is inflatable, it would be perfect for my house when my grandson comes to visit (he’s due to show up at any time now).

Thank you, Michelle! I got the duck tub at Babies R Us, but it’s also on Amazon:

Thanks so much for featuring my post on parenting without fear! I love the other selections you have here too — especially the one about the toxic baby products. We used to use all kinds of things, and have slowly whittled down our beauty routines to castile soap, baking soda, vinegar, and jojoba oil. Which is all I use around the house, too. It’s kind of refreshing to simplify!

And I’m really, really jealous of the snowshoeing . . . here in the Eastern California desert it was in the 90s this week :/
