In Need of a Change

At first I wasn't sure if I wanted put up this post. After thinking about it for a few days, I figured this blog was for me anyways. Somewhat of a journal if you will. And plus, when I post things, I feel obligated to keep to them since someone has got to read this, right? Anyways, here it is:

Trendy Tuesday: Styling Long Baby Hair

Once the hair starts growing, the fun begins!! Well, it begins before that, but for the sake of this post I'll just stick with that statement. For the littles, it's good to try different ways to style it to not only look adorable, but also to keep it out of their cute little eyes. Here are a few different ways to style a cute 'do.

Trendy Tuesday: Saving Some Money

Everyone loves baby clothes. Maybe it's because they're so little. Or maybe it's because cuteness looks even cuter on a little cutie!! Whatever the reason, it really is hard not to buy all those expensive little clothes when your little one will only wear them for a short time before he/she moves on to the next size.

However, do not dismay!! There are other ways to buy baby clothes than at those expensive stores at the mall. Here I'll share a few of them with you now.

1) Yard Sales

It's best to search on Saturday mornings. I like going around 9 am, but as long as you go toward the morning  time you'll still get lucky at yard sales!!

2)Consignment Stores

Salvation Army, Goodwill, ect...all have a luck factor. there's nothing wrong with looking though.

3) Hand-me-downs. 

Of course not everyone has older kids, so ask friends, people at church, and other family members with kids if they have any extra hand-me-downs. You might be suprized how many clothes someone will bring you if you let them know that you'll use them. 

4) Ross or Marshall's 

A little more expensive than the other choices, but still cheaper than stores at the mall.

Now, all of these options are a matter of luck. So don't be discouraged if you try a few different places in one day and don't find a single thing. Go back in a week or two when there are new clothes available and you might luck out with a bunch of things!! Good luck!!

And on the 6th day....

It always amazes me what us mothers are so relieved to see. The new experiences. The good, the not so good, the: I better look that up online to see if I should be worried. You see, I started feeding little Ems solids a few weeks ago. So far it has been going great. She's a natural, loving every second of "real" food, and being a great chewer with those two little teeth.

Getting back to Painting

I used to paint a little, but it got put a way for quite a while. While shopping with the family, a painting inspired me to follow along.

Baby's First Toys

Right before my little Ems came I was so excited to get her her first Christmas present. However, her first Christmas was about 2 weeks after she was born, so naturally I had no clue what to get her!
Now that she has been playing with toys, I know which ones she actually liked to play with!
Here are my favorite, and top used toys for baby's first 6 months.

1) Contrast Book
