It is the week before Christmas, friends, and this Momma is getting into the spirit!
We are planning on taking LOTS of pictures this weekend, as I am learning to use the manual mode on our Nikon. It has been a lot of fun to play with, and I can't wait to see how our pics will turn out.
Till then, here goes my Five on Friday.
If you are a new mommy, and your baby is struggling with transitioning out of the swaddle, then this suit will be your new best friend.
We started using it 3 weeks ago, and Milly has been sleeping from 7.30pm-6.45/7am EVERY NIGHT. Without waking up once.
When you are a new parent, getting a full night sleep is like winning the lottery, and these past 3 weeks have been nothing short of magic. Oh yes, pun definitely intended!
Who doesn't love those adorable Freshly Picked Mocs?
I got a pair of Platinums for Milly, and Mimi couldn't resist getting these for Christmas.
I can't wait for her to wear them!
Being a new mommy, I am constantly looking at pictures from when Milly was first born. I think this is because the first couple of weeks are such a blur, that you kind of forget some of those precious moments.
I am thankful for my sister-in-law Betsy, and the precious pictures she took on the night Milly was born.
this picture of M & M makes my heart ache in the best possible ways.
Milly already has 3 cousins: Sara (7), and Jake (2.5) on my side, and Davis (2.5) on Michael's side.
She is getting another baby cousin due in June 2014!
Betsy & David are expecting a sweet baby girl, and I couldn't be more excited!
I come from a big family with many many cousins, and I've always hoped my children would grow up with lots of cousins too.
I LOVE the way they announced it to everyone! Such a CUTE idea.
I am saving details for an actual post, but I am loving playing with the manual setting on our Nikon. I did a little photo shoot with Milly last weekend, and these were my favorite pics!
I still have a lot to learn, and need tons of practice, but I am pretty excited about it. I think Michael was worried that we had spent so much money on a camera, and I wouldn't take the time to use it properly. Told him it was an investment! ha!
