Update : {Two Months Old}

Here we are baby girl, you and me in a little coffee shop while your big sister is burning off some energy at preschool. You are all wrapped up in the Solly, sleeping peaceful on my chest. What are you dreaming about little one? Are you dreaming about climbing the highest mountain? Are you flying high above the clouds, heading straight for a shooting star? Oh little one, how I wonder what your dreaming about.

As I still here, quietly tucked away in a corner, I can hear the soft sound of conversations buzzing all around us. Whenever I come here with you baby girl, you steal the show. So many compliments on your adorable little self. Your adorable little two month old self! Time is so bittersweet! You are constantly growing and changing. I just want to bottle it all up and keep it forever, but unfortunately, thats not how it works. Luckily, I can at least capture those memories through photographs, video, and writing.

So my sweet little babe, here is a

Baby Girl – {Two Month Update}

  • Friday night, September 16, you slept from 12:30am until 5:30am. This was the longest stretch you have ever slept! I woke up Saturday feeling great!
  • Sunday evening, September 18th was your first time in the 4moms infant tub. You loved it much more than the sponge baths!
  • Wednesday evening, September 28th you slept from about 11:30pm until I woke you about 8am the next morning. Since then, you have been sleeping long stretches through the night.
  • You often rustle in your bassinet throughout the evening. Its usually because your pacifier fell out.
  • Sunday evening, Oct 2nd was your first time on the play mat. You loved kicking the piano!
  • Tuesday evening, Oct 4th was your first tummy time experience! You have great head/neck strength!
  • I love when you get those little bubbles on your lips!
  • I love when your eyes widen and you give the big smiles when I pick you up!

{Audrey’s Bear} : Personalized Swaddle Blanket

When I found out I was expecting another girl, I was elated to say the least! Being blessed with the opportunity to pull out all those tubs of adorable, frilly clothes again, made me want to burst at the seams! I was just that excited!

There was one thing weighing on my mind… Individuality.

As silly as it may sound, I didn’t want baby girl #2 to feel she was constantly living in her big sisters shadow. Only being given what her sister once used. Instead, I wanted her to know and feel we saw her as an individual right from the beginning.

So, I began my search for a few practical and reasonably priced baby items that she would be able to call her own.

When I learned I would have the opportunity to collaborate with this company I was beyond excited! Audrey’s Bear gifted my newborn babe one of their beautiful, personalized swaddle blankets.

Audrey’s Bear gives customers an array of customizable options. Once I chose my design (Multicolored Arrows), I was literally able to custom every. single. aspect. Something I have yet to find anywhere else!  I was able to select the color of the swaddle, two different colors for her name, the font style, and a different color for each of the four arrows. The company then sends a proof via email for you to approve before your swaddle is printed. This company has excellent customer service and they make the process so easy!

Magical Sleeping Powers!

I cannot get enough of this swaddle! Seriously, I wish I had a dozen of these! Audrey’s Bear designed this light-weight, soft, stretchy fabric with baby’s in mind! The first time I used it, she was tired and cranky. I thought I would never get her to sleep. Then I remembered the swaddle and thought, why not!? So I wrapped up my sweet babe and WALA! She fell fast asleep! So, now I use it all the time and I don’t leave home without it!

I love how this is not only a great, practical baby item for parents to purchase, but also a lovely keepsake!

Giving Back

I love working with companies that give back and Audrey’s Bear is no exception! They created a program called, {swaddle4swaddle}. Each time a customer purchases one of their lovely swaddles they will donate one to a baby in either the NICU or Pediatric Cancer Center. As a mom, it warms my heart to see companies like Audrey’s Bear giving back in order to make someones day a little brighter!

What are your go-to keepsake items for baby? Do you have a few for each child, showcasing their individuality?
