• Best Personal Gifts for Baby

    Since pregnant is the new black these days and most of my friends are on baby #2, I’ve been getting to pick out super cute + personal baby gifts, instead of the standard registry gift. I love buying off-registry, don’t get me wrong, but when baby #2 comes along and you already have the basics, it allows for some creative and fun gift giving. Here are my favorite gifts for second babies, or the momma who already has the basics.

    1. Give the new baby his or her own lovie. This one was Charlie’s favorite.

    2. Baby’s first ornament is always a great gift, and these from Paloma’s Nest are one of my favorites (Charlie has it too!)

    3. Baby moccasins – what’s cuter? Enough said. As soon as I have a positive pee stick on baby #2, I’m placing an order.

    4. Nothing screams “I’m not a hand-me-down” better than something personalized. I love this baby name swaddle blanket.

    5. I loved doing monthly photos with Charlie, and definitely want to do it with the next baby as well. Here are two options, in onesie or sticker form. (I want those onesies for the second time around!)

    What are your favorite gifts for baby #2?

       Three things: 1. You've got one day left to enter my @mywildbird sling giveaway, so head over to my blog (link in profile) and tag your friends. 2. I was featured on @loyal_hana blog as part of their motherhood series, so if you want to give it a read and hear about my typical (hot mess) day or how I (don't) balance work and mothering head to their profile to find the link to their site. I pretty much live in their nursing-friendly clothes and was honored to be featured. 3. Charlie took this picture (and basically directed me for the shot) and it makes me really really happy   Putting the finishing touches on the boys' bedroom and had to stop to admire the magic that the morning light and their @babyjives mobile was making. ✨☁️⭐️❤️✨#charlieandcalsroomredo
