I am so excited about Christmas this year! At 20 months, Grace is still too young to understand about Santa (or at least I think she is?!) but she definitely understands the concept of opening presents! Here are a few things on her wish list and a few things she currently loves that would be the perfect gift for your little one under the tree.
I know I say this every month, but this age is so much fun! Gracie is really loving playing with toys, doing anything involving water, and hanging out outside. She still played with most of her toys from months nine and ten and was mainly interested in things that were not toys such as iphones, remote controls, toilet paper, etc. Here are a few of her (and my) other favorites for months eleven and twelve:
My baby girl is ONE! I can’t even believe how fast the past year has flown by. Each and every day with this little girl keeps getting better and better. She has so much personality already and is always laughing and smiling – unless of course, it is her first birthday party in which she refused to crack a smile for a single picture. Stubborn. We are in serious trouble.
I had always said that I would probably have a small party with family only for G’s first birthday. I had done a lot of event planning in a past job and have been over it ever since. Two months out, I started browsing on pinterest and things started spiraling out of control!
We love a holiday over here, and the countdown to Valentine’s Day is officially on. Now that G is here, holidays are even more fun to celebrate. I’ve gathered a few of my favorite Valentine inspired baby goodies for your viewing pleasure. And the good news is that many of these items can be worn year round.
For some reason starting solids with Grace was so overwhelming to me. What do I start with? How do I cook? No salt, no oil, try something for four days until you try something new, allergic reaction or no allergic reaction, don’t try uncooked greens before nine months or try them before nine months. I mean, how do you cut through all of the noise? Continue reading →
The months are going by so fast with Grace. I can’t believe that she is almost 9.5 months old! During her eighth month, she learned to crawl and all of a sudden, she was crawling fast. She pulls up on every single thing including my hair – yes you did read that right. She actually pulls hard on my hair to stand up. Ouch. And she said mama and dada even though I am positive that she has no idea what she is saying.
Next up in the gift guide series are gifts for the new mom or mom to be! As a new-ish mom, I’ve put together a list of my favorite items plus those that I wish I had had. While the best gift of all is the new bundle of joy, any of these items will surely be cherished by any new mom.
