When I was pregnant with Lily, before I would fall asleep, I would hold and rub my belly and in Portuguese I would say to her: Boa noite Lily. Faz O-O. Dorme bem. (Good night Lily. Go night night. Sleep well).
I did this EVERY night before I would fall asleep.
Then, Lily was born and for the first couple of nights, with the excitement and exhaustion of her being here, I would just fall asleep. Until, the third or fourth night when I went to hold and rub my belly and realized there was nothing there. Tears starting building and I just cried. She was gone…
I looked over and there she was was in her bassinet next to me. She was here!
It was a brief bitter sweet moment. She was no longer inside me where she was all mine 🙁 but she was here for the world to see. 🙂
BlaBla not only makes dolls, they also make rattles, backpacks, clothing, blankets, finger puppets and mobiles.
Everything is made from natural fibers of exceptional quality grown in Peru and knitted by Peruvian artisans.
It’s Lily’s first doll and we just LOVE it.
Living in a 1 bedroom apartment, I am very aware of space (or the lack of) and always try to find items that are “space savers”. This definitely meets the criteria.
I am keeping this on the list of Lily’s must haves for when she gets older. 😉
My hair is everywhere! All over the floor, all over my clothes, all over my brush, in the car, in the bed, EVERYWHERE!
It’s falling off in hand fulls. Every time I wash it, I’m surprised I come out with hair still on my head.
When I was pregnant with Lily, my hair was at its best. Long, shiny, full and it never EVER fell off.
I know this is what happens after giving birth, your hormones change once again and even though prenatal vitamins are still being taken, there is nothing that can be done. It just needs to happen.
I wish I could get my pregnant hair back…..
This was another item that Will and I did a lot of research on however, I knew that I wanted the Frog. It was just a matter of convincing Will. Being a new parent and all, we were not used yet to the insane prices of certain things.
The Frog is light, durable, folds down well, comes in great colors (we chose orange) and most importantly it came with a bassinet. Lily slept comfortably in that bassinet for the first 2 months of her life.
So thank you granma Hayes and avo Joao!
You can see Lily below totally stylin’ in her Frog.
