    Baby and Toddler Gift Guides

    1- Activity CubeĀ This is hands down my number 1 toy for this age range (and beyond). My girls have played with it since 6 months old and still play with it to this day. It is great for development and many ages. 2- DimplĀ  This is one of the best little hand help toys for infants. It is simple and teaches cause and effect while working on fine motor skills.Ā  3- Pull ToyĀ Such a classic toy that grows with your baby and their abilities. 4- Toddler SlideĀ This is the only slide I’ve ever found that is this small! Babies LOVE it! It’s short enough that babies can crawl up and…

    2 year old gift ideas

    1. My First Trampoline– This is surprisinglyĀ affordable for the quality! We have one and both Scott and IĀ can get in it with Lila (we don’t jump, but it really is a minitrampoline)! This also works great for getting stuff done! Lila will jump in here all zipped up for a half hour or more and I can clean or cook or whatever! Such a great option! So great to get out all that 2-year-old energy! 2. MagformersĀ – This was the number one thing recommended to me! Magnetic blocks are great for imagination and fine motor skills! Everyone said not only do their two-year-olds love them but that they love them…

    Grace is Here!

    Photos by the amazing Cecilia Harvard Photography Our precious little Grace Marie is here!Ā  At my 38 week appointment, I had my membranes stripped. Later that evening I went and took my maternity photos then went to bed. at about 5am a painful baby kick woke me up and then seconds later my water broke! My water broke with Lila as well (even at the same spot in my bed haha). When my water breaks, it really breaks! It’s like a large water balloon pops and there’s no mistaking it for something else. I called a few of my friends to find someone to come stay at our house with…
