Happy December 1st! Holy heck, how has the year gone by so fast?!

I wanted to start 2017’s gift guide series with my favorite gifts to purchase: gifts for the little ones. I know Ava is still so tiny, but I’m still loving every second of planning her first Christmas. While I certainly can’t speak from a ton of experience, these are things that either Ava adores or our friends love!

Whether you’re a parent or an auntie (real or honorary!), I hope this list takes any stress out of shopping for the tiniest tots on your list.

Sophie Teething Toy: How adorable is this teether?! It has a light grip so small babies can hold it along with a squeaker for stimulation.

Baby Einstein Neptune’s Ocean Discovery Jumper: Great for both boys and girls! It has three different languages [English, French, and Spanish] for baby to learn numbers and colors.

Disney Mickey Mouse Wooden Shape Sorting Clock: Great for developing fine motor skills.

Fisher Price Kick & Play Piano Play Gym: This has been an absolute favorite from many of my friends!

Sassy Floor Mirror: I mean, what baby doesn’t love looking at themselves?!

Toyssa Learning Blocks Includes 5 fun different activities (shape and color recognition, music xylophone, teaching clock, bead maze and lacing beads).

Lamaze Rainbow Stacking Rings: These are perfect for helping baby develop hand-eye coordination. Multi-textured rings invite baby to explore, stimulating tactile senses.

Infantino Grow-With-Me Activity Gym & Ball Pit: Ava loves this! We currently have it flat, but the best part about this product is when she is able to sit up, the sides can come up and it turns into a ball pit.

Skip Hop Playspot Geo Foam Floor Tiles: Skip Hop’s foam mats are a staple in the homes of all of our friends who have babies. They provide a soft surface for infants to lie and crawl around on, in chic color palettes and patterns. And since they’re made up of individual tiles, you can adjust the size and shape to fit any room in the house. Brilliant!

VTech Super Star Learning Table: Features a unique star-shaped table with six different play areas that offer incredible value.

Skip Hop Fox Bandana Buddies Activity Toy: I LOVE Skip Hop toys for Ava as they have so many patterns, textures and sounds!

Manhattan Toy Winkel Rattle: Perfect teething toy as it has a rattle and small loops for baby to hold.

I hope these help! XOXO,

Family

Motherhood: Month 2

First of all, how in the heck is my baby 2 months old?! Little Ava Grace truly is the sweetest thing and we fall more in love with her every single day. I can’t believe I’ve been a momma for over 2 months now! Time is flying and this is the trickiest and tiring, yet most rewarding job I’ve ever had. Sean and I are getting SO excited for her first Christmas. The holidays are so special to us and we can’t wait to start new memories with Ava.
