First birthdays are so much fun and such an important milestone! I had the opportunity to capture my niece's first birthday party, filled with cute moments, darling decor, and cherished family memories. Happy Birthday little one!
If you have a thumb sucker in your family, you know how hard it can be to break the beloved habit, especially at night or when your child is feeling emotional. Thumbuddy to Love are cute little dolls designed to help kids stop sucking their thumbs. The themed characters slip over a child's thumb, reminding them to not suck their thumb and acting as an endearing substitute for comfort. We received Ballerina Sue to try with our own little thumb sucker. Ballerina Sue is dressed in a little pink tutu, ballerina shoes, and a shiny silver crown. She's paired with a cute bedtime storybook.

The news of a new baby often brings lots of joy to a family and subsequently can be accompanied by lots of stuff. While you are busy adding to your registry lists, filtering through your piles of baby products, and picking up tiny socks and discarded outfits from your toddler, there are several things you can do to reduce the trash output your little ones inspire. Here are a few tips to "Go Green" in the nursery.
Warmer weather and changing school schedules means we are looking forward to lots of summer fun and family vacations! It's always tricky taking small children on adventures, but it is possible. Despite naps, diapers, and nursing schedules, families with young children can still get out and enjoy some summer sunshine! Last year our family explored the beautiful Oregon Coast. My 3-year-old loved the pacific northwest beaches and our baby didn't mind coming along for the ride.
Setting up a food taste test is a fun way to teach a preschooler about the sense of taste from the 5 senses. I remember doing taste tests with my mom. It was always an adventure to try different foods and associate them with sweet, salty, spicy, sour, and bitter flavors. I was always excited to try something new; often "bitter" baking chocolate or "sour" salt and vinegar chips. I did a preschool taste test with my own daughter the other day after lunch; not only was it yummy, it was fun and educational too!
I just recently started wearing leggings when I was pregnant with my 3rd and quickly fell in love with their comfy versatility and universal style. Leggings are awesome because they can be paired with a dress, long shirt, or tunic to create a classy and stylish outfit. Or they can be thrown on at home for comfy lounging. I pretty much skipped having to buy maternity pants when I was pregnant by just buying one-size leggings. The stretchy waist easily fits under your growing tummy and you can keep wearing them even after you have your little bundle of joy! I recently discovered Girly Girl Leggings and honestly had a hard time choosing my favorite patterns because of their huge range of styles! Girly Girl patterned leggings come in every style, from floral and chevron to damask and leopard print. And they are very affordably priced!
I stumbled across this darling online boutique the other day and I'm so excited to show off some of their metal jewelry!
