Father’s Day Gifting

Father’s Day is quickly approaching and if you enjoy being one step ahead, just like I do, then it is time to begin planning the perfect gift for Papa Bear!

This is Ryan’s first official Father’s Day! I was positive I wanted to make sure the gift I gave him was extremely personal and came from the heart. I am so happy I came across Luhvee Books!

Each Luhvee book is personalized in the comfort of your own home. You can choose for a variety of themes such as “Mother’s Day”, “Grandmother’s Gift”, “Father’s Day” or simply create your own. The pages are beautifully decorated and customized to each theme. Putting the book together is EASY! Pick a theme, upload your photos and fill in the blanks! I admit I even shed a few tears looking back on all the photos of Hampton as a teeny, tiny newborn.

The book arrived in perfect condition and I was amazed at how colorful the pages appeared in person! I loved gathering photos from family members for Ryan’s First Father’s Day book. Hampton loves looking at the photos each time we read the book together!

It is also perfect for Mother’s & Grandmothers as well! Here are a few pages from the fabulous Luhvee Book I made my mother…

Have A Seat Baby!

I am currently residing in Boxland, USA. We are rapidly heading towards the finish line of packing up the house and the moving truck is set to come this weekend! How has packing been possible with a six month old?

The answer is our Regalo Baby Floor Seat!

  There is never a convenient time to move, especially with a baby! Moving requires a lot of work, organization and patience. Speaking of time, we only have three weeks to pack up and move out of our house! Sounds insane with a six month old baby. However, my saving grace has been the Regalo Baby Floor Seat!

  The Regalo Baby Floor Seat has given me the ability to pack up my house, room by room with Hampton observing my every move the entire time! This sophisticated floor seat offers durable yet soft foam cushioning that hugs Hampton perfectly. The adjustable straps keep Hampton buckled in as he safely sits up on his own. Hampton loves observing the world around him and in this case, it is watching mama pack up his playroom!

The Regalo Baby Floor Seat features an attachable tray that I am able to put snacks and development toys on too! Hampton is quickly learning to entertain himself but also enjoys when I sit down next to him and play right along. This floor seat is extremely easy to wipe clean which has come in handy since Hampton recently began eating sweet potatoes and squash. If you are a Pinterest fan like I am, the the Regalo Baby Floor Seat is also perfect for crafting with little ones!

Paint & Plant

Win over that special gardener in your life with this fun craft! It is also perfect for Mother’s Day!

What You Will Need

Once you have gathered all of your supplies, lay out 3-4 paint colors. I decided to use the colors  light blue, green, purple and pink! Now let your little one paint their Picasso heart out!

Set aside the painted pot and allow to dry for 24 hours. The dry time will depend on the type of paint and HOW much paint was used. I used acrylic and a lot of it! I allowed the pot to dry the full 24 hours.

The final step is to add a flower or Succulent to the pot! Succulents are relatively easy to find and this beautiful succulent is from a local Ace Hardware. Typically any hardware store with a garden center will carry succulents. If not, then opt for a faux succulent. The carefree maintenance of a faux plant is also a fantastic perk!

Bring On The Beach!

The sunshine is here and it is time to hit the beach!

I try to take advantage of the spring months by squeezing in several breezy beach days. I am a well seasoned Floridian and once summer hits, our time will be extremely limited with a baby at the beach.

Here are my favorite items we are excited to bust out for basking in the cool sunshine…

Baby Butterfly Prints

I have yet to meet a mama who doesn’t LOVE baby feet!

Mother’s Day is around the corner! I’m still in disbelief that it is almost May! This is the perfect project for Mother’s Day! I love crafting and feet are the easiest, for me personally, to use when crafting with Hampton!

  • What You Need

  • Small Canvas
  • 3 Assorted Paint Colors (I chose pink, purple and yellow for Spring!)
  • Black Paint
  • 4 Paint brushes
  • Plate for paints
  • Baby feet

To get this craft going,  I prefer to have Hampton sitting in a small baby floor seat. I entertain him with a few light up toys of his preference to ensure he is happy during the craft.

Have the canvas directly by your side before you begin painting. Use a separate paint brush for each color, this helps move the craft along quicker. Paint the top section of the foot one color. Switch to a separate paint and paintbrush. Then paint the middle section of the foot. Repeat and paint the bottom part of the foot with the remaining color. Quickly stamp the foot onto the canvas, making sure to gently press down. I roll the foot beginning at his heel and ending with his toes in order to get a solid stamp. Repeat the steps for the next foot and allow canvas to dry.

Once the canvas is dry, use a thin paintbrush and black paint to carefully fill in the core section of the butterfly. I prefer starting at the bottom and painting upwards, ending with the antennas. Allow the canvas to dry one more time. Voila! The end result is the most beautiful baby butterfly toes ever!
