Shots n stuff

I don't know about you, but I am the sissiest of sissies when it comes to getting shots, so after the scene Jonah made at his doctors appointment earlier today, doing anything he could to avoid getting his flu shot, I totally understood and nervously laughed it off. Since birth he has always been great with shots, they were never an issue to him, but more of a way of getting free lollipops and stickers (smart kid), so you can imagine how taken back I was by having to hold him down against his will. It was tough, really tough. 

There was blood, there were tears and there may have been a slight panic attack, too. After all was said and done all I really wanted to do was book it home and cuddle the heck outta him, but getting ice cream sounded a lot funner. Jonah agreed. 

After a messy ice cream feast. (Yes, feast. I won't bore you with how many scoops were devoured. Or maybe I will. 5. 5 freaking scoops between the two of us, OK? moving on now...) We picked up my niece and headed to our favorite local park to run off some energy. Being that my beloved camera is basically my fifth limb, I had to snap a couple photos. I just couldn't not. Does that even make sense? You get me right? You get me. I'm delirious, so here are some adorable pictures from today to apologize for the nonsense I just blabbed. Enjoy.

He went up and down that terrifying stair case too many times to count. 
That smirk melts me. I'm literally melting. I'm just a breathing, talking, living puddle. 
Sometimes I can't believe he's mine, forever. Somebody pinch me. 
My niece makes for one perfect little assistant. She charges 1 scoop of cotton candy ice cream/hr. I'd say I lucked out. 
Boy, do they fight like cats and dogs, but when I capture sweet moments like these their love for each other screams through the photos. 
He doesn't get his poses from me, I swear. 

I hope you all have a wonderful night, and as always, thank you for visiting xx

Yes, I'm alive and yes, I have missed blogging for all of you so, so much. With things being nonstop over at Rad and Rebellious Apparel it's been pretty difficult to stay on top of blogging regularly. Fingers crossed I can slowly start getting back on track. Step one to doing so would be buying a super cute planner, right? Idk, maybe that's just an excuse to go to Tar-jay and spend an absurd amount of money on unnecessary thangs, but I'm goin with it. 

Being that Jonah just recently turned three, (YES 3!!!) this past month, I figured it would be fun to share a handful of his favorite things. From clothing to his go-to yummy snack, below are some of the things we've been using on a close to daily basis. I hope you enjoy this quick post, and if you would like to see more posts like this one, let me know in the comments section below. Have a wonderful day, babes & of course, thanks for stopping by, xx. 

1. Hello Apparel "I'm not tired" t-shirt: can we just swoon for a second? This tee is so incredibly comfy & simple in design. If I could throw this on J every single day, I would. Or maybe I have, idk. 
2. Vans skater hi-tops: The perfect toddler hi-top. With a slip on/zipper back feature this shoe has been the most reached for lately. 
3. Paranorman (the movie): Now, I will say this movie may not be the best fit for children, so *ahem* why is it on the children's Netflix listing? Not sure, however, this movie will keep jonah glued to one spot for an entire (almost) two hours. That says a lot. 
4. Disposable sippy cups: Thankfully we ditched bottles almost a year ago & have since been using these super cute rainbow colored sippys. For under $5 a pop I can't imagine switching it up anytime soon. They're labeled "disposable" but anyone that willingly throws these bad boys away after one single use may be a tad bit off. Just sayin'. They're THAT good. 
5. Dinosaurs: Any and everything Dino that Jonah can get his hands on, he will. 
6. Baby carrots: A clean and healthy snack that Jonah can never get enough of. I'm not complaining ;-)
