Luke's Favorites

Here are some of Luke's (and mine too!) most favorite items so far!

1.  Baby Touch and Feel Books.  We love these.  I try my very best to read to Luke as often as possible, hopefully he enjoys it.  These books are great because on each page there is a touchable picture.
2. Infantino Play Mat. o.m.g. gotta love this!  We use this mat every single day.  It is great for tummy time and just playing and laying and visiting and talking.  It's great!
3. Fisher Price Swing and Seat.  This has been an absolute lifesaver for me and my back and my arms.  ha.  Luke loves to take cat-naps in this swing during the day.  It has vibration and music and the various speeds of a swing.  The best part-- it's size.  It is not a massive (take over your living room) item, it is perfect!
4.  Wubbanub Pacifier.  We would not have made it through month 2 without this pacifier.  It is perfect for Luke.  He loves to hold it and not even suck on the paci.  Great gift item for sure, I will be giving one of these as shower gifts from now until eternity!  
5.  Carter's Footed PJ's.  I love them, Luke loves them and they are so adorable!  You can't beat the price either.  We just stock up during Carter's sales.  

What were some of your must have baby items?   
I need to know for further on down the timeline.  
If Luke needs it, he will get it!  :)

Taylor's First Father's Day

When I first started planning for this weekend I didn't think Taylor would be so under the weather!  He has been in bed since last Sunday and was diagnosed on Wednesday with pneumonia.  I have a glimpse of what life would like as a stay-at-home, single mom & it has been far from easy.  We are celebrating tonight at home with a little food...  pretty boring!  Hopefully next weekend we can have a day with daddy! 

Father's Day 2012
Thanks to pinterest, I found these free printables.

My favorite grocery store sells beer by the bottle and then you get the most perfect plain cardboard carrier... gotta love Market Street!

Remember those cute little pictures... here they are framed!

and here they are "wrapped" up!

Happy Father's Day Taylor, we love you!!

Show us Your Life: Bedrooms

I just love the "Show us Your Life" series over at Kelly's Korner!  Today I am participating and showing off our bedrooms.  I love this now that we have a precious little nursery in our home.  Our home has 3 bedrooms: a master, a nursery and a guest room-- which is now more like a storage closet.  I will spare you and keep from sharing a picture of that space how it looks currently!  

Our Master:

Luke's Nursery

Our Guest Room/ Storage Closet :)

Go on over to Kelly's Korner and see all of the other bedrooms!
