Hello all! Oh how I’ve missed you! Life is busy – baby – busy around the homestead…
We have finished washing, organizing and displaying all the little baby items for our sweet Sawyer Deans July 22nd arrival. 25 days to go!!! (You can see a sneak peek picture of his nursery nook in our room below!) Our family is all geared up for our loved ones coming from NY to AL to visit over his birthday. Oh BOY are we ready!!! Our sweet Bea is just as helpful as ever and so excited to be a big sister. She has a doctor kit that my mom put together for her and she likes to give me daily “hiccup” check ups and listen for her brother using her stethoscope… cute right!? Did any of you all have any special way of celebrating your little ones becoming big siblings… like a special gift given or anything? We are planning on giving Bea a “big sister” necklace from her little brother on his birthday.
We are also trying cloth diapering this time around, thanks to my oh so generous sister who ordered our entire registry off of Alva Baby, we are all set! The patterns are oh too cute, like he will wear little tees and his diaper bottoms, they are that cute. The quality really actually impressed me too! The price was right too! I know Alva is a direct distributor in China and I read somewhere that American companies and such buy their diapers, slap on their own labels, then of course mark em up and sell them here… So I just skipped a step and saved considerable amount of money! They took less than a week to arrive too…bonus! Ill be sure to write up another review post once we start using them!
As for our “very special day” title, well, today marks my sweet husband and my 4th Wedding Anniversary! Wahoo! We met while working together at a restaurant and I talked him into asking me out on a date… didn’t take too much convincing I swear! After that first date we both just simply knew that we were meant to spend our lives together and we have been best friends ever since! He really is quite a remarkable man, husband and father. I am so proud to be his love.
I hope everyone is having a fabulous start to their Summer… We will check in soon… Maybe with a Sawyer Dean announcement! <3
