Update : {Five Months}

My sweet baby girl, how can it be five months already? I know I say it time and again, but these updates are coming all too quickly. Time moves like quicksand. I barely have time to grasp one moment before it’s gone, slowly fading from my rearview mirror…

Sweet little one, we love so much! Do you know that? Do you know how much your big sister loves to play with you?

Baby Girl – {Five Month Update}

  • Saturday, December 17th was your first family Christmas. You wore the same adorable outfit as big sister did for her first Christmas! You were perfectly happy! This was your first visit with your Great-grandparents and they loved you! Great-grandma even holding you for a quick photo.
  • Christmas Eve was your first time at Church and you very well! I feed you and you slept through most of it.
  • Big sister helped you open your Christmas Eve gift – purple footy pajamas with a monkey on them.
  • Christmas Day was a lovely First Christmas for you! I placed you in your activity seat and big sister helped you open your gifts. Your favorite gift is a teething book, “Guess How Much I Love You” that Santa placed in your stocking!
  • Sing – your first movie on Christmas Day. We feed you before we left. I held you in the theater and you fell asleep about 20 minutes into it. Then you woke up for a short time. You fussed for a moment or two, so I feed you and you went right back to sleep. Your first movie was a success!
  • In the last two months you have been moving all over your play mat and often times moving off of it.
  • Wednesday, December 28th you cut your first two teeth, the bottom two front ones!
  • Saturday, December 31st at 1:00pm you rolled over for the first time from tummy to back! I was able to snap a photo after your second time rolling over, but you haven’t allowed me to capture it on video.
  • January 3rd at 9:30am was your first cloth diaper experience.
  • When I tickle your neck, you give a deep belly laugh! It’s too cute!

Holiday Gift Guide For {Mom}

Gift cards are the golden ticket to a women’s heart! This list, although short, is a culmination of ideas for women, whether they are in mommy mode or need a little ME time. So, whether your shopping for your wife, mother, mother-in-law, daughter, or daughter-in-law, there is sure to be something for everyone!

Holiday Gift Guide For Mom

1. Mommy Mode – Shutterfly Gift Cards

I love Shutterfly! It’s the perfect place to store all those precious photos. This is #1 on my personal list, especially since I just recently decided I wanted to have hard copies of all my children’s photos. Having photographs stored digitally and in several places is great, but computers crash and thumb drives get lost. Plus, when we were kids our moms would spend a weekend going through family photos. So much history spread out on the living room floor… I don’t want my kids to miss out on those sweet and simple memories. So here I am, still working on printing photos from my 3 year olds first year on life.

2. Restaurant Gift Cards

This is great for any occasion whether its date night, girls night, or lunch with the kids! It’s nice to give moms and dads a break from the kitchen! Restaurant gift cards are perfect for date night or dinner as a family. But also consider gift cards to places children really enjoy, such as; Chick-fil-A, McDonald’s, Taco Bell, KFC, etc.

3. Movie Theater Gift Cards

Who doesn’t enjoy seeing a new release on the big screen?! My personal favorite – movie theater popcorn! Seriously, what is it about movie theater popcorn that makes it taste so much better!?

4. Gift Cards to a Salon and Spa

As moms we often get so caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life that we forget the simple things, like getting a hair cut. Or maybe that is just me? Either way, its nice to get in a little “me”, while feeling pampered!

So, instead of making your way through a crowded shopping center, consider purchasing a gift card for the special lady in your life! What are your go-to gifts for {her} this holiday season?
