Lazy Baby turns 2!

 Another year has passed and I am amazed every day by this delightful creature. She has not been a baby for some time now, but it still amazes how much she’s not a baby. She runs around, climbing everything; she’s talking more and more every day, like asking our dog “Bigby, what are you doing?”; her imagination is a thing of wonder to me, as well. The games she creates and the things she pretends are other things...I suppose it is a bit difficult to explain. She is a bright child and I love watching her light shine.

She is my chip-buddy (because she likes the salty treat as much as I do). She is my mini-me in some ways. She is a mini-Mr. LL as well. I cant wait to see what the future will be like with you in our lives. 


Lazy Baby had a great birthday. We had family over to our house. She got a lot of Moana gifts and didn’t nap all day. Thus, she fell asleep during her bath. :D

Happy Birthday, my sweet girl

I can't believe a whole year has passed since you came into our lives and changed our worlds forever. You are the brightest light in my life and strongest force in it as well. I always want you to smile and laugh and would do anything to make you feel better when you are sick or sad. I love you, my little nut. Happy first birthday, you darling girl.

Here are some pictures from her party last Saturday. 


Lazy Baby: Turning 1! The Gifts.

Last week I shared the theme for Lazy Baby's first birthday; this week, I'm sharing some FIRST BIRTHDAY GIFT IDEAS! We won't be getting her all of these, but they are definitely things that I want to give LB when I can.

  1. Melissa & Doug® Classic Wooden Toy Bundle - Pound-A-Peg, Stack and Sort Board - LB loves to bang on things, so the peg table will be a hit, plus the stack board is great too because she's just figuring out stacking things! (Target)
  2. Melissa & Doug® Around the House Sound Puzzle - LB has a couple of wooden puzzles, but it's hard for her little fingers to get the pieces out, so I want to get her one with pegs. I like this one, a lot because it also shows the inside of the house and the people in it. (Target)
  3. Play Kitchen - This is what we are (probably) actually getting LB for her birthday. Play kitchens can get real expensive, real fast; and although I really wanted to get her a wooden one, this one is more affordable and I like it. We wanted to get her something that she would play with for years to come, so this is an investment in our eyes. (Target)
  4. Melissa & Doug® Let's Play House! Dust, Sweep & Mop - I know this looks weird, but I am getting this for LB one way or another because I want LB to not loathe the idea of cleaning in the future. It all goes back the Montessori-esque things I am trying to do with her. (Target)
  5. New PJs - These are just too freakin' cute. Plus, she hates the footies in her footie pjs so these are a good compromise in my opinion. BONUS FOR YOU! Save 20% on pure organic cotton #hannajams, including new arrivals! With warm summer nights just around the corner, it’s time to stock up on short johns in cool, comfy cotton. Valid through 5/6/18. (Hanna Anderrson)
  6. Wooden Building Blocks - LB already has small, alphabet wooden blocks, but I think she'd like these bigger building blocks down the road. (Target)
