Baby's First Easter: The Beginning of New Traditions

Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays because it is so rich with tradition in my family. Growing up my sister and I were always adorned in our matching outfits with our Easter baskets that we’d had since we were babies. The Easter Bunny would fill it with the same candy year after year, the little egg cartons that had bubble gum eggs and the chocolate covered malt eggs that I think he put in our baskets especially for my mom.

Capturing the First Months

So much is going on during those first few months of having a new little one in your life. With Soren, we were learning to adjust to parenthood, had lots of visitors and tried to sleep whenever we could. Not to mention recovering from the delivery! I wanted to make sure we took time to capture the special moments of having a new baby, especially since they change to quickly! Here are a few of my tips for easily capturing those special moments.

The Magic of Baby's First Kick

I was watching a talk show the other day and the host, a woman who doesn’t have any children, was discussing how weird she finds the fact that a pregnant woman can feel her baby moving inside of her.

She likened it to feeling like there was an “alien” moving inside and said she couldn’t understand how women got so excited to feel the baby move.

I had to laugh a little, watching it, because on one hand, objectively, I can see where she was coming from. It is a little bizarre to think about the fact that separated by mere layers of skin and muscle (ok, so not much muscle here, but still), there is actual human being growing inside of you. On the flip side, however, I have to agree to disagree, because there is nothing scary about feeling your baby move.

In fact, it’s the one thing that keeps me going during pregnancy. 

Jada's Favorite 17 Things to Say at 17 Months

I still can’t believe it has been 17 months. I know it sounds so cliché, but it really does feel like it was just yesterday that I was up at 3 in the morning breastfeeding an 8-pound Jada while rocking her back to sleep. Time surely does fly.

Our Disney Baby Wish-List

Just like most of my fellow Disney Baby moms I scroll through the site aimlessly wishing I could get this or that for Baylor. It is all so cute! I figured why not share with you guys some of our favorite Disney Baby finds that we can’t wait to add to our collection.
