oh my goodness. we are in countdown mode! our sweet girl is turning ONE in a little over 2 weeks and how in the world do I explain how fast this year has gone?! I am loving every minute of her little growing self and cannot wait to celebrate her in a BIG way! showering her with stuff isn't what is important on her birthday, but it totally makes it that much more fun:)
its all about you Baker girl!
for my snuggle bunny // chloe the bunny is just the sweetest and softest bunny EVER! I got this precious bunny for Baker as our gift to her from her mama and daddy. not only is this doll uber cute, the story behind this company is amazing. cuddle + kind is a company started simply because they wanted to make a difference. with each doll they sell, cuddle+kind donates 10 meals to children in need through their giving partners. each hand kit doll is made in Peru by artisans from locally grown cotton and provides women with sustainable fair-trade income. they have donated over 200,000 meals in just over 6 months! they have a goal of one million meals in one year and I am so excited to be apart of it!
developing her fine motor skills // we have a TON of hand me down toys from the big sister girls. we kept nearly everything, so there isn't a lot of toys I can think of to 'need' but its amazing how much times and toys have changed in just a couple years! looking for anything to develop her fine motor skills that seem to be thriving at this age. she shakes nearly everything that she picks up to see if makes noise which is why the parum pum pum drum would be such a fun toy for her to play with- and I can guarantee her sisters will be playing with it, too! she also is really into stacking and fitting toys into like spaces, so the shape sorter pull toy and the animal nesting blocks would be right up her tiny alley-o-fun. she digs the phone and loves to have you talk, too..and while we have about a million options for pay telephones, the skip hop owl phone would be something new and fun for her to enjoy. the little people noah's ark is something I get for every little friend that has turned a year old. I also can appreciate that this toy doesn't sing, make noise, light up..require batteries!
baby in style // Baker specifically requested these precious outfits (obviously). while I am a huge advocate of the moccasin and we wear them often, my favorite shoe for the big girls has always been TOMS and when I put Baker in her first pair of tiny TOMS , I just about died! I love them! I have also heard awesome things about native shoes, and got a couple of hand me downs from cousin Kendall, but with Baker being such a busy body these days she definitely needs to be in shoes when we go out. old navy is basically killing it with their spring and summer collection. I want everything! this two piece is screaming to my boho heart + and this bubble denim romper is precious to the bone + give me every floral dress on the rack.
