He is 8 months old. I have taken him on some walks and I have let him enjoy the fresh air. And, although it isn't easy in a home with 3 rambunctious brothers, we have even escaped the chaos on occasion. But, I have not walked to lose baby weight. Not once. I can prove this by stepping on the scale. There are a million reasons, or excuses, that I have given for why I didn't commit to walking: the lack of time (I do have 4 kids and a job;) the need to sleep; and more than once I used the weather as an excuse. I can't do that anymore. At least not as an excuse for Decker.
|Checking out the comforts of his new seat|
In part of this sponsorship JJ Cole Collections provided the littles on our team with a #teambundleme hat and an original bundleme. Decker was both in style and warm in his original toddler sized bundleme (in graphite) and his warm and cozy new hat.

Now, it's true I think he is one cute kid, but how adorable does he look all snuggled up in this comfort?
When we crossed the finish line, his eyes opened, he grinned instantly, and you could tell he was happy and comfortable, and was probably unaware of the mitzvah his brothers and I just made. And, when I pulled him out for hugs and play he was cuddly warm, which was perfect on my skin in the fall breeze. Truth is, it was a beautiful day and he may not have needed all of that warmth, but the bundleme is a zippered sac that allows you to remove the top part if a beautiful day comes our way in the middle of the colder seasons. And, the temperature can drop a lot, as it will in the coming weeks and months, and I can still have my boy outside and know that he is comfortable and warm.
The bundleme is machine washable and easy to change from car seat to stroller so he won't need the bulk of winter jacket (which also prevents the 5-point harness from fastening close to him.) And, since we are amidst Chase's ice hockey season, Decker will spend many games cheering on his brother rink side from the comforts of the warm and cozy bundleme. I think I need to get myself one of these. Then, of course, I really won't have an excuse to start walking off the baby weight.
