From this little bunny to yours. :)
We hope you enjoy this special day.

This week has been ALL bunny. To get in the mood, we have been dying eggs, baking goodies, and of course, dressing in theme.
We finished off a week of celebrations with an Easter Egg Hunt with family. My little crawler is not yet walking (though I already think it may be happen anyday) ... but she couldn't have been more excited for the event.

Happy Easter weekend, friends. Enjoy every minute! :)

We love floral so much that Waverly's first outfit EVER was adorned in floral.
And we've had a few floral moments since then.
And most recently ...
Yeah, we like floral.

Other than fun with fashion, the other highlight of my trip was obviously the moment I reunited with my baby girl. I'm not sure there is anything better than seeing your favorite person in the world shrieking with excitement at the sight of you. And guess what that favorite person can now do? Crawl. That's right, friends. My baby girl is now mobile, and it officially happened while I was in NYC. She had been almost crawling for the past week, but took a first trip across the floor with her dad while I was gone. I was a little sad to miss it, but am convinced it did because she was trying to get to me. She had to find some way to find her momma.
I have spent the past two days since my return watching this girl crawl across the floor. And it definitely hasn't gotten old yet. Yet I think I need to spend my time to babyproofing the house.

For St. Patrick's Day Eve, we made some festive chocolate-covered pretzels for our family & friends. Waverly's favorite part? Sucking on them, of course.

To make sure she felt as lucky as she makes us feel everyday, Waverly's special surprise was the bib she is wearing above. I ordered it from Etsy in honor of the Irish.
And to end our special day, I pulled back out the coins. She was super excited. I'm thinking these coins may extend past the holiday.
I hope everyone had a lucky little day like we did. It's time to get Easter ready, as it's less than 2 weeks until that bunny arrives ... who was on the planning commitee for that one?
1: Boppy Bare Naked Pillow - I remember looking at this weird shaped pillow while registering, completely confused as to why I would ever need it. UM ... I couldn't have lived without it. We loved it for SO many reasons, but mostly for how much easier it made positioning Waverly while breastfeeding those first couple of months.
2: Lanolin for Breastfeeding Mothers - Thanks to my Type-A personality, I pride myself in always being prepared in life. If anything, overprepared. I was totally, completely unprepared for breastfeeding. Both mentally and physically. The first few weeks were extremely painful and I came close to calling the whole thing off and switching to formula multiple times. I didn't (thank goodness ... since I now love it!) - and I'm pretty sure I have the lanolin to thank. Stock up, mommas!
3: Angelcare Baby Movement and Sound Monitor - This was actually the second monitor we got. We purchased it about two months in, right around the time that my husband insisted that it was time to move Waverly to her own room. I was so paranoid about SIDS that having a sensor to detect movement was the only way I was going to get any sleep at night. We love it, and although I enjoyed having the video on the first monitor we had, the sensor ended up being more important in the end.
4: Sophie the Giraffe Teether - I've posted about Sophie before and could go on and on about how much we love her. At one point we lost her and just about lost our minds until she was replaced, so to me ... the more Sophies, the better! For whatever reason, babies just love her and therefore, so do the mommas!
5: Boon Lawn Countertop Drying Rack - This was not on our registry, but we recieved it as a gift from friends who had just had a baby of their own! We LOVE it and it is probably our favorite gift that we recieved. I honestly wasn't even sure what to do with it when we first pulled it out of the box, but it is great for storing bottles, nipples, tops, pacifiers ... all that "stuff" that comes with your sweet baby. And I love that it is modern looking, too.
6: Cloud B Sleep Sheep - Another favorite gift ... one that we really could not live without! We have used this sheep to get Waverly to sleep from day one and my only complaint is that now she really won't sleep without it. We joke that she is going to be 16 sleeping with her sheep. :)
7: Aden & Anais Blankets - We registered and got TONS of swaddle blankets, magic blankets, sleep suits ... and really, these blankets were all we needed. They are soft, lightweight, incredibly cute, and definitely worth the price. I wish they came in adult size, too.
8: Crane Drop Humidifier - My mom told me to buy a humidifier before Waverly was born, but I didn't understand the importance and therefore opted out. Like they say ... mommas know best. My husband ended up on a midnight run to Walgreens when Waverly was about two months old because she was so congested. We have used it multiple time since. I totally should have listened.
9: Pampers Swaddlers - Without a doubt, swaddlers are the favorite diaper brand in our house. We were appreciative to get lots of diapers as gifts before Waverly was born, and therefore we have tried them all. The difference in quality and fit with the swaddlers and all the others is significant. I can't say enough good things about them.
So there you have it. The 9 Products that I HIGHLY recommend. I obviously, in no way, included anywhere near everything that you would need on a registry for your little bundle of joy. That list could go on and on ... and on. These are the just the ones that we couldn't do without out, and that completely worked for us. Hope they help! Additionally, we have MANY other favorite items that we have found along the way. Here are links to those posts:
And of course, a photo of my bundle of joy - swaddled in her Aden & Anais blanket @ 1 month old.
