Need a gift that you can make and give to your littlest lovebug for Christmas? These DIY Emoji Bodysuits are amazing!

DIY Salt Dough Picture Frame Ornaments

There’s nothing more special than a handmade keepsake ornament from baby’s first Christmas. When I first saw these DIY Salt Dough Picture Frame Ornaments, I knew I had to share them with you here. With just a few supplies (most of which you already have in your pantry) and a cute picture of your little one, you can create an affordable and ADORABLE handmade gift to give to your close friends and family.

Mixing Our Cultural Christmas Traditions

My husband and I both come from Hispanic families but were raised in America. We are the children of immigrants, and it’s always fascinated me how much we assimilate to the American culture versus how much we retain from our countries of origin.

This is most evident in the way we celebrate holidays. For the most part, as we were growing up, we did Christmas the way our parents had always done Christmas. This meant celebrating Noche Buena and Three King’s Day with not a big emphasis on Santa Claus. But now that we have kids of our own who are more Americanized, we have to decide how to mix the American traditions with our Hispanic ones. 

Macks is Dancing!

At 10 months old, Macks is as interactive as ever. He loves to try to copy us, and is becoming more and more his own little person. Our family has had so much fun watching him learn these new tricks and seeing the pure joy on this face when he sees how happy we are when he does it.

His newest trick is that he’s learned how to dance. Whenever any music comes on or if you sing to him, he will sway from side to side and bounce up and down. He absolutely loves to dance and loves the beat of the music.

The other day while we were trying to pass the time in the afternoon before picking up my oldest from school, I had some music on for us. As I looked over as Macks, I saw him dancing away. It was one of the cutest things to see just how happy he was. Thankfully I had my phone and was able to record it.

Check out Macks’ newest milestone!
