Ever since I learnt that Stacy was pregnant with Strider, I knew I wanted to get him some crib moccs and I must admit, I love them on him. Grey is his color and the first grey crib moccs came out right when I was going to order his moccs. He wears them everyday and I love that we can keep his feet warm in a stylish way. Continue reading
Strider is almost 2 months old and he couldn’t be more perfect. He’s the sweetest baby and he loves the sound of my camera. When he hears the little sounds it always make him look up! I love his little custom Strider outfit his parents got him. They chose for a white and grey color combo and I love how it makes Strider’s blue eyes pop! Continue reading
Hello everyone and happy 2015!
I’m so happy with how the year started. Stacy spent New Years Eve having contractions and they got worse as the hours passed. Little Strider was born on January 1st, a little before 9am. He came home last Monday and he’s such an amazing little guy. He’s sleeping all day, is really calm and really only cries when he’s hungry. He’s adorable and I’m so in love! Continue reading
Last week I traveled with a baby for the first time.
Paul, Stacy, Slaiden and I went to Seattle for the week and I can’t wait to share my pictures of the trip with you guys, but in this post I want to talk about the trip there. I had packed Slaiden’s bags before when we went on a road trip, so I knew what I had to do, but little did I know what traveling to another state by plane is with a baby. You need to bring a stroller, a car seat, a high chair, a baby backpack… I mean, the list doesn’t stop. Traveling with a 16-month old is not easy. It asks for organization, teamwork and most of all patience. Continue reading
A little while ago I went to the park with Slaiden and his girl next door, Mia (and her parents). I remember when they first met each other they were both so tiny and they didn’t really interact. Now that they both turned 1 and they are walking they actually start liking each other and they want to play together. I really like to watch babies (or should we call them toddlers already?!) because it’s funny to see how they all like the same things. They like to get dirty in the sand, they like eating the sand and they love getting off the slides. Slaiden actually likes running off the slides which is pretty dangerous, so I always have to keep both eyes open when I take him to the park. (Has anyone else experienced something like this before? What did you do about it?) Continue reading
A little while ago, Slaiden got the cutest little baby moccasins. After I saw them for the first time, I immediately knew that I had to get him those. I really like him to be dressed well every time I take him for a walk to the park or the beach. Other moms and au pairs (like myself) have probably experienced already that it’s not always easy to put shoes on baby feet. Sometimes it takes me up to 10 minutes to put shoes on the little guy’s feet. With these cute shoes I don’t have that problem! 😉
Leggings are the most comfortable pants that exist. There is no doubt in that. If I could, I’d wear my workout leggings all the time. If grownups find leggings so comfortable, then why wouldn’t they be perfect for toddlers who are running around every hour of the day?! I found out about Sugarplum Lane through Instagram and after checking out the webshop, I knew I was in love with all the leggings they are offering. I paired these high-quality leggings up with a basic blue polo shirt and some sneakers, which gave the whole outfit a more boyish look!
The best thing about living in California is having the beach on walking distance of your home. I love to go to the beach and just hang out, even on a less sunny day. I’m taking a photography class and we have to practice taking pictures outside. The teacher told us to always either go out before 10 in the morning or after 4pm in order to take the best pictures. When the sun is shining too bright, the pictures don’t turn out as good as when it’s overcast. Continue reading
Whenever I can make time, I like to take Slaiden to the park! It’s the perfect place for him to run around, be around other kids and just be outside! Last time we went, I snapped some shots and this is the result! I loved running after him with my camera, because it’s just really funny to see what he is interested in. He basically loves eating everything he finds on the ground and he was obsessed with this ivy! So adorable and a perfect background for the pictures! Continue reading
Slaiden turned 1 on Tuesday and as his au pair I have to say that I’m so happy to be taking care of such a happy, advances and amazing little guy. He is walking and talking (his own language) and he’s just everywhere!
We are going to have this super cool Superbowl/Seahawks party for him on Saturday and I’m so excited for him to try his birthday cake! Continue reading
