Monthly Baby Pictures… with Donuts

newbornnewborn photography

I’ve had a lot of good ideas in my life, but none of them top my latest idea. This idea is pure gold, ladies and gentlemen. I have decided to take my newborn baby’s monthly pictures… with donuts.

Think about it, there are twelve months in a year that you capture this little baby of yours, and there are twelve donuts in a dozen. I’m pretty sure whoever came up with the idea for the term “dozen” to mean twelve had this exact thought in mind.

Therefore, each month that my daughter hits a new month on the 28th, I will pose her newest monthly pic beside a donut, or two, or three, or eight… you get the picture.

The best part is that this new found prop is not only edible but delicious. And if mom is the one going to all this trouble to locate a donut(s), find a matching outfit and pose a newborn baby for the perfect shot, I think we all know who’s going to get to eat the donut, or two, or three, or eight each month.

I’ve never been so excited for a baby to turn one in my life.

Happy Tuesday, friends!

Sink Baths with Aveeno

Sink Baths

Word to the wise for all you pregnant mothers out there reading this; sink baths will change your life.

The other day I realized two things. The first is that this little girl is two, and only has a limited number of sink baths left in her life. Soon enough she will not be able to fit in this sink and enjoy this cozy little kitchen environment for her baths.

The second thing I realized is that a bath in the kitchen sink is so much easier for this pregnant mama than a normal bath. I don’t have to awkwardly bend over while my ever-growing belly runs into the side of the tub. This has been so much easier on my back, and sometimes while she’s playing in there I can even get things done around the kitchen. That’s what I call a win-win.

Another win-win is Aveeno. We’ve been using Aveeno baby wash and shampoo, as well Aveeno baby daily moisture lotion and absolutely love it. The baby wash and shampoo blend natural oat extract into a rich lathering wash that cleans without drying. It’s so gentle on skin and hair and leaves a soft fresh baby smell that I simply cannot resist.

Aveeno’s baby lotion helps to soothe and protect my daughter’s delicate skin. It is naturally nourishing and the non-greasy formula absorbs quickly. It is hypoallergenic, fragrance-free and is so gentle for daily use. My daughter’s skin has never been smoother.

I know my daughter won’t stay little forever, so I am enjoying these beautiful moments while I still can.

These Boots Are Made For Crawling

There is nothing cuter than handmade clothing on children. Growing up my grandmother always made handmade slippers and booties that my cousins and I had fun wearing when we got to her house. She made tons of different sizes and colors for us to choose from when we got there, and I always loved how warm and cozy my feet were. Well, that and sliding around the kitchen floor so well in them.

When I found this cute little Etsy shop, I was so excited to find something handmade for Baby #2. The shop These Boots Are Made For Crawling is the perfect handmade shop that makes the most adorable baby booties for tiny feet. She makes the sweetest designs and has styles for both genders. From animals like foxes, monkeys and elephants, to sports themed booties like footballs and baseballs every single bootie is made specifically for babies with love and care.

I was so happy to find the cutest little unicorn booties for our baby girl due in December. They have the sweetest little eyes, with a gold horn and beautiful rainbow fringe coming from the back. You can tell they were made with such care, and I cannot wait to see our little girl in these booties!
