Packing for our trip


We are leaving for Collingwood tonight for four days. I am in charge of packing Logan's stuff. OMG It is amazing how much stuff you need for a baby. However, I admit that I tend to over pack. So I'm keeping track of what I bring for Logan. This way I will have a check-list for our next trip and I can make note of what I should have brought and what I didn't need for next time .

16 bibs!? That is a crazy number. I hope you will check out Baby Chaleco Performance Wear and lighten your load. They are so much better than bibs - stylish, waterproof and just one lasts all day, even for the champion droolers.
