Teething is no fun...

This has been a tough week for our little Birdie.  She has 2 teeth cut and another one on the way.
 
Her sweet cries are just heartbreaking to us but I'm thankful she's going through it so early.  I'm told that's good.  Get them out of the way.


So what do you use for teethers? 

My sister got me the most darling Chewbeads necklace, with flat beads on them.  It's so pretty and I love it.  But right now, AB needs something that she can hold and the necklace is too heavy for her. 

She will basically put her mouth on anything she can get.  Anything.  I'm thinking of having a glove fitted out of silicone so she can just gnaw on my hand.

She does love her little chewbeads bracelets which I got through Citrus Lane.  Citrus Lane is a darling monthly service that sends the latest toys and fun items based on your child's age.  Here is the first month's box:



Inside, they sent a set of 3 Chewbeads bracelets.  These are made from Silicone and are perfect for her little hands to wrap around and to stick in her mouth.  She often ends up wearing them like bracelets.  So cute.



And this month, here was her Citrus Lane box... I just loved this month!

Inside, was a tube of Xylitol, which is for cleaning her little gums.  I found this really fun and hope she likes it.  It's a fun flavor and not harmful to her.  All natural.  (Also, see the fun rainmaker toy?  and Spring is here book (darling) and super soft wash cloths (perfect to clean her dirty face after eating) and I LOVE the lavender lip balm that came just for me.  And apparently Stephen because he really likes it too.  I guess I'll share.

So, here's to her many teeth.  I can't wait to see a big grin on her face, with a full set of teeth.

Although, I'm pretty fond of the toothless grin she's got going on now.  It's pretty adorable.

Our Birdie...


Some days, I need just a little Mommy and Me time.   I need to find some good light and let my little Birdie soak it up.  Her eyes get real big and I can only imagine the details of her surroundings she's taking in.  (read:details, not dust)


And then she'll turn to me as I talk to her and for a moment, I think she's talking back.  At least with her eyes.  She'll tell me how much she loves me with her smile.  I smile back.  We speak the same language.


And I love when she'll show me she loves me by just simply resting her head against mine.  A moment where she is completely content and relaxed.  I love those moments.


We are so blessed by this little girl.  We love you Birdie.

Our little Valentine...

We have been so busy lately, that I haven't even gotten to share our sweet little Valentine with you. 


I did a mini session a few weeks ago and after all was said and done, I threw this little one out into our front yard with all the props I could find.  She's such a good sport.



Have I mentioned how much I love her eyes lately?  No?  Oh, well, I love them.  She melts my heart with every gaze.


And just a shout out, and will be sharing more later, but one of my sweetest friends sent us one of her headbands she's making for her etsy store.  I will do an entire post of the cute headbands she sent me.  But here's a close up of one.

Love.



I hope you had a wonderful Valentines day, where you shared with those around you how much you love and appreciate them. 

I hope you all know how much I love you and hope the Lord blesses you today!

Love, The Bakers
