Moreaya is My Blanket Girl.

dreamblanketcrib

We have a blanket girl - well, really a tag girl.  Sophia was never really attached to one stuffed animal or blanket.  Moreaya, on the other hand, calls out for her "baby" every day - if she's tired or needs an extra snuggle.  She's also started taking to blankets, but not just any blankets.  Oh no, my girl has very good taste.  She is quite in love with her aden+anais swaddle blankets. I love them for the material - the lightweight and softness - and she loves them for... the tags. Oh yes, the tags.  That's also why she loves her "baby" so much.  As you can tell, thumb sucking is still going full force and so is the tag obsession.  But, what's attached to those tags is quite nice too!  Although she might tend to overlook the blanket … [Read more...]

Babywearing in the Cold? Kowalli has you and baby Covered! #snugbug

Kowalli Baby Carrier Cover

I found the babywearing love with Moreaya.  I didn't get my first carrier, an ErgoBABY, until Sophia was already walking and she had already asserted herself as a very independent child, so she wasn't so keen about being strapped on Mama's back.  But I wore Moreaya at just a few weeks old.  My favorite way to wear her when she was so tiny was in a Boba Wrap.  Once she was a little bigger, we started using our Beco Gemini Carrier almost exclusively.  It's slim and trim and I always felt like I have her close and safe. Babywearing in east Tennessee was all fine and dandy this Spring and Fall, but now that it's turned c-o-l-d, it's not my favorite.  I don't have a jacket large enough to cover us both and I just feel like although I'm warmer with Moreaya being on … [Read more...]

First Christmas

Baby's First Christmas

'Twas the night before (Sophie's first) Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, but Sophia sure was!" I decided that since my aunt had bought Sophia a very special book with the "Twas the Night Before Christmas" poem in it, that we would make it a new tradition to read every Christmas Eve after we open our pajamas (another tradition that Rob and I started when we got married), before we go to bed.  What did she think about this tradition?  Well, she's good at staging photos, but as soon as I actually started reading, she cried through the whole story!  Oh well, it's a great story from her first Christmas that I'm sure Rob and I will remind her of every year (as she rolls her eyes)! Sophia's First Christmas Morning - She had a White … [Read more...]
