I am about a week early giving this 9 month update on Remi, but if I don’t do it while I have a few extra minutes & while I’m thinking about it, IT WON’T GET DONE. Haha! The struggle is real. I had every intention of being on top of Remi’s monthly updates, but I failed hard. I don’t know why it is so difficult to do, but when I’m busy with my 4.5 year old and running her around, trying to keep the house clean, trying to keep Remi happy…sometimes things I *intended* to do, just don’t make the priority list. AND THAT IS OKAY.
I have said it many times, and I won’t stop saying it anytime, but I love Freshly Picked! These were the first pair of shoes that fit Saylor properly, and she wore her first pair into the ground. FP is a small company from Utah, was featured on Shark Tank, and all around has an amazing story. They are very active in their community, in the mommy world, and with their customers. I love that!
Recently they came out with a new line of Mary Jane Moccasins. As soon as I saw them I knew I wanted them to be my next babies first pair! They are so very cute…and the scallop detail!? Obsessed.
Hi! If you are like me, and still looking for gifts…look no further! I have rounded up a few of my FAVE things for littles. We’re talking 2 and under.
My first favorite things to gift are books. Who doesn’t love books?! Saylor has shown interest in them since she was tiny, and I love that. What is even better than books, is a book subscription! What I love about Bookroo is that your subscription is based on age. You pick 0-2 and 2-6. Pictured here is the 0-2 option, and they are board books which is great! You get 3 books each time for 0-2, and 2 books for 2-6. Use code ROBYMEAC for a surprise at checkout!
Does anyone feel like they are really good at giving baby shower gifts? I do! Haha, honestly though, being a mom has made me really aware of what to give for gifts. Before having Saylor, I was a big giver of clothes, which don’t get me wrong, clothes are amazing to get because, duh, our babies need clothes! But, now I give gifts based on a few things. First, necessary things that you will need for a long time (IE diapers, wipes, diaper bag!). And second, things that you wouldn’t necessarily buy for yourself, things that you wouldn’t think you need, or things that you may not have heard of (IE DockATot, Solly wrap, Milestone Cards).
If you know us at all, you know that we love our Freshly Picked moccs. They were the first pair of shoes I had gotten for Saylor, and we wore those babies for a YEAR straight. She had tiny feet as a baby, and they literally were the only shoes that stayed on, weren’t ginormous, and were so cute! Her first pair was PLATINUM and they matched everything! Highly recommend that color.
Freshly Picked is a small (well not “small” in the sense of it being little anymore) business out of Provo, UT. A hard working, determined mama started this company all by herself with a few random scraps of leather and has grown this company to be pretty much a household name. This company gives back so much, is always up to do a giveaway, and hosts warehouse sales around the nation so we can score awesome deals if you don’t like paying full price!
