New baby on the way means a legit excuse to start diaper bag hunting right? Before the bichin was born I bought a really nice diaper bag from SkipHop, I liked the design and it had a lot of pockets etc. so I figured that´s what you need in a diaper bag. I still think it´s a fun diaper bag but it´s exactly that: a diaper bag. You wouldn´t take the bag with you if you don´t have your kid close because it really looks like a diaper bag and therefore in the bag category is not one of my must-have fashion items. So for baby #2, I wanted something a bit nicer for mama as well! And what I found is seriously every mama´s dream!
Another week flew by (seriously crazy how fast time is going!) and this bump update is from the Netherlands. On Monday I flew here with the bichin and C flew on Tuesday (but to Amsterdam with the Spanish national team). We will be here for the next weeks and I am currently working from home (so lucky i can do that with my job) while the little guy is enjoying time with family. It´s great to be home but the weather SUCKS. Like, give me a good reminder of why we moved to Spain kind of suck! So we kinda went down almost 20degrees and it´s grey and rainy…awesome! But the little men is enjoying being outside with his rain boots anyway and I am stuck behind my desk anyway so just hoping we can get some sunshine in the weekend.
So this post has been on my to-do list for quite some time but somehow all the time something came up and I have basically been a bit of a mess these past days so now is finally the time to give you an update on how it has been going so far for us. As preparation, I read quite some posts of other fellow bloggers and I also read the book Potty Train in a Weekend because you know, I like things to go fast and efficiently so if we could do this in just a weekend, I am in. (The book was ok, very straightforward I would say and most info is also mentioned in blog posts) Here´s how it went for us and what we did.
It´s Friday again so time for a new bump update and update in general basically. It has been a busy week, with my last two office days in Madrid before we take off to the Netherlands for 4 weeks. I am just taking a few days holidays but will be working from there, this will give us some quality time with family & friends and C has the Eurocup in Amsterdam so that way we are all in the same country at least. And for the bichin some good Dutch immersion instead of only listening to his mom rambling in Dutch all the time. We´re flying on Monday and the fact that I need to pack for such a long time (and for all temperatures because the weather sucks in NL now but we will also have a week at the beach at the end of the trip).

During these hot summer days, I often worry a bit that my little guy could get overheated or suffer a heatstroke. With the blazing sun and high temperatures in July and August, it’s easy to get exposed to too much heat and sun. Therefore, I use some simple tips and tricks to prevent this from happening to my toddler.
