Growing up I was always a huge fan of stuffed animals. I loved collecting them, naming them and playing with them. Having plush toys is a must-have for any nursery and perfect for little one cuddles. These are the sweet little plush toys Soren has on his wish-list! ;)
This weekend, my very best friend and fellow new mommy and I had the grandparents watch our little ones while we went on a mini getaway to Greenville, SC for the day. We wanted to do this for a while, but between schedules, work and nursing, things can get a little tricky. As well, I’ve found it mentally difficult to remind myself to STOP and try to take a little time for myself. I forget how healthy it is for my mind and overall being.
As a mommy, I love taking photos of my little man every chance I get. As I’m looking through my photos and picking out my favorites to edit, I tend to go through the photos quickly and delete any that are blurry and aren’t the best. While this DOES save room on my hard drive, I’ve had to stop myself a couple times and remember to keep some of the photos that maybe are a little blurry and don’t seem “perfect.” These photos show action, personality, funny moments and real life. Babies are wiggly and on the move, sometimes a blurry photo is perfect at capturing just that! So as you are looking through your photos, don’t forget to save some of those outtakes for later. ;)
Here are a few of my favorite outtakes of Soren:
