Sunny Cali baby

Abigail got these adorable sunglasses for Christmas from her Aunt Katrina. She got to break them in at the Spectrum the other day while shopping with mama. She is quite the stylish orange county baby. 

Love little Grahamy-bear in the back eying Abigail's bow. He loves to pull her bows out of her hair :)

Abigail's first Christmas

Ahhh... My baby's first Christmas has come and gone. I remembered to soak up every precious moment! How fun it was to have a little 5 month old this Christmas! Our concern of what to get her was quickly thwarted by the fact that she only cared about the wrapping paper itself and all the pretty bows on the presents. She was having a blast making noise with the paper. But after all the wrapping paper had been thrown away she is loving all her new fun baby toys! Thankfully amongst the hoop-la of the weekend I remembered to snap a few pictures! Definitely have some favs...





Best. Christmas. Ever.

Christmas laughs

Abigail's little laugh never gets old. While putting together our Christmas card she thought it was so funny every time I licked an envelope! It worked every time!

Thankful Thursday!

Why do we stop saying what we are thankful for as soon as Thanksgiving is over? I made it my goal to say what I am thankful for every Thursday to remind myself how gracious God is. Maybe I'm not quite ready for Christmas yet and I'm trying to still relish the Thanksgiving holiday but its still part of my New Years resolution so I'm going for it! I am feeling quite ambitious this year and made 2 New Years resolutions that I am starting early. Cross my fingers I can stick with them!

What better way to start off than to say I am so thankful for this little munchkin! My baby is girl is my whole world and her little face and expressions light up my day. I am so thankful I get to spend all day, everyday, with her!

These pictures are especially for her Aunt Katrina :)
Featured on top of Abigail's beautiful head of hair is the sweet little crochet bow headband that her aunt Katrina made for her. My super talented sister is a fellow crocheter and she is opening up a pop-up Etsy shop soon and you may see a few of these precious little bow headbands. You can find information about her pop-up shop and her crochet creations here!

Magic

The sling = Magic!
Abigail loves loves loves this thing!
Its an instant soother and she falls asleep within minutes of being in it. Apparently its a way to pop her back in the womb where she likes it and my favorite part is having 2 hands to do things. I get a workout carrying her around in it while doing household chores. Its amazing! I would recommend it to anyone and everyone!


I found this adorable picture and apparently everybody loves the sling! I imagine this little boy is probably carrying his little baby brother and the baby looks so cute, cozy, and happy in there. Too cute!

Too much of a good thing... or not

Milk
"Its whats for dinner"
Or, if you have a newbie at home then its whats for breakfast, brunch, lunch, snack, dinner, snack, late dinner, midnight snack... AND repeat!


Recently, I was honored to be the matron of honor in a wedding. I purchased my dress for the wedding while I was pregnant and I got a size bigger than my normal dress size thinking it would be perfect 6 weeks after the baby, well.... everything fit just fine except the top of the dress. Holy milk! I had no idea what size nursing would make my bosoms. On top of that, I couldn't wear a bra with the dress... what to do. Welp, I got a great tip on a great product, Lily Padz! Nursing pads that are seriously amazing. No leaking, super comfortable, and they are reusable for 6 months. No bra, no problem!
