Baby Memories

Your baby grows up quicker than you think, and you'll want to remember every memory. These easy scrapbook and memory-making ideas will help you record every milestone.

Cutest 5-Month-Old Milestones

I love these early stages of babyhood because they are always accomplishing things and meeting new milestones. At just five months old, I’m already seeing so much of Macks’ personality. Gone are the days when all he did was eat, sleep, and poop. Now he’s easily entertained by his sisters and is on much more of a predictable schedule. It’s amazing how in just five short months all of the things our little ones are able to learn and accomplish. Here are five things that Macks is doing at five months old.

Becoming a "Big Cousin"

Our family is still on a serious high after welcoming my nephew to our family a couple of days ago. Our family is so close knit that a new cousin for Baylor might as well be a new sibling. A new baby means that he isn’t the “baby” of the family anymore. I worried he would have a hard time, but he is adjusting to all of this change like such a champ while also loving the new role of “big cousin.”

How My 23-Month-Old is Like the Disney Princesses

Before I know it, my littlest will have ventured into the realm of make believe. A land where anything can happen, including a transformation into a princess. And if she’s anything like her mother, it’s only a matter of time before she’s pretending to be a member of the Disney Dynasty (whilst belting out those catchy tunes, of course).

She’s already got the music part down, singing her favorite Disney songs alongside her big sister. What she doesn’t know just yet is the fact that she possesses many of the qualities found in Disney Princesses. And, if you look carefully, you might find this to be true when it comes to your own toddler. I thought it would be fun to look at each of the princesses and see what they have in common with my toddler.

Celebrating Half-Birthdays

I’ve been noticing a trend happening that many families are embracing – the celebration of baby’s half-birthday. I guess, for some, waiting until the grand first birthday is just too much to bear and they want to celebrate every milestone they can. So when baby reaches six months, they throw a mini-party.

5 Things I Miss About the Newborn Stage

I never truly appreciated the newborn stage until I had Macks. When you’re a new mom, you learn as you go. Everything is new. But with Macks being my third child, I knew what was coming next (or at least I’d like to think that I did.)

I love each stage that my children go through, but there is something so magical and precious about those newborn days. It’s only been five months since Macks was born, but it feels like so long ago that we was my tiny baby. It’s hard for me to admit this, but I miss it so much. There is so much to love when your little one is so fresh and new, but here’s what I miss most about when Macks was a newborn.
