Beautiful Stocking Stuffers

Now that I have a little of my own, I realized I need to start thinking about stocking stuffers. I want to find things that won’t go into the trash or donate pile by 6 months and something that I thought was as beautiful as much as they are functional. Here are a few items I love:

1 | These first word cards are so beautiful. Hazel loves little cards to hold so I know she’ll love these.
2 | A game that doesn’t count as screen-time but is just as fun. Win win!
3 | These dress me notepads are so cute and gives kids the ability to imagine and draw up whatever they’d like!
4 | This spinning snack case has a button that spins the options which gives it a fun twist to offering new food options.
5 | These little barrettes are perfect for any unicorn or rainbow girl.
6 | Magna Tiles are a big hit and these mini cube ones are a nice compact version to take with you on the go.
7 | Of course, I just have to get this dentist set, right?
8 | A super cute magnet case to explore and create all kinds of fun faces.
9 | The cutest little pizza set.

BabyLetters to my Child

Dear Hazel | Half a Year

Our little Hazel Sue is six months old. Half a year! It’s been the fastest six months of my entire life, I can’t believe how much she has grown and changed. I’ve been with her this whole time and it really has happened in front of my eyes.

Hazel joining our family has been such a seamless transition. She’s so easy to love. Even during those late night feeds and diaper changes, I just adore her little self. She is pretty consistently sleeping through the night now which I will happily accept though!

We have so much love for this tiny, beautiful baby we brought into this world. Ryan and I often say, I can’t believe she’s ours! She’s straight from heaven and such a light in our lives. She is easy to get a smile and giggle out of.

Hazel, I can’t wait to witness you grow and change and become everything you’re going to become. You bring such beauty and wonder to our lives little girl.

Moments I want to Remember | March 2019

Getting our first real smiles this month!

The mixture of sweat and breastmilk after hours of nap cuddles.

The stinkiest of toots I’ve ever smelled from a child ha!

Arched back stretches and big long yawns.

The softest chubbiest cheeks.

Cutest little baby snores.

Cuddles while binge watching Marvel movies in chronological order.

The most hilarious moans and grunts while eating. Especially after a bottle of formula or a long nap!
