Check It Out: LILLE Love Letters

I'm honored to announce that I've been asked to participate in LILLEbaby's #LILLEloveletters series. This project documents real families and their baby wearing experiences. Throughout the year, I will be sharing snapshots of our life as a LILLEbaby family. This month we kick off this series with the first theme of the project: LOVE.

love
ləv/ 
noun 1. an intense feeling of deep affection.

I often look at my boys and wonder if they know how much I love them. Since they are both so young, are they able to understand that my love for them is unconditional, selfless and endless? Can they feel that? I want my boys to know that being their mother has been the greatest gift of my life, that nothing could ever change the way I feel about them. I cherish our time together, our time as a family. Our adventures, whether big or small are always special and unpredictable. My life is surrounded by legos and fire trucks, dinosaurs and super heroes, my life is full of joy and laughter. And while there are always challenging times, I wouldn't trade the love for and from my boys and my husband for anything in the world!

xoxo,
Maria Fe

Baby Essentials: Baby Deedee


Dylan will be 8 months old this wednesday and we've finally have a good nap schedule going on. He usually wakes up at around 6 am, takes a bottle and goes down for another hour to hour and 1/2.  He goes down for a 2 hour nap at 10 am and another 2 hour nap at around 2 pm.  I've been trying to stick to this schedule as closely as possible but with an active 4 year old big brother, something it gets a little tricky.

Creating an environment that is both safe and comfortable has been extremely important in achieving a successful napping schedule. We recently started using Baby Deedee's crib sheets and sleep nest. The crib sheets are made of soft 100 percent Indian poplin cotton and they feature a contrasting band that creates a crib bumper effect. 


Their Sleep Nest Lite has become essential to Dylan's naps. The Baby Deedee sleep sack is a lightweight cotton jersey wearable blanket for babies and toddlers ages 0-36 months, it replaces loose blankets in the crib and helps babies stay warm throughout the day and night. It's unique shoulder snaps have made it super easy to place Dylan into the sleep nest even while he's already sleeping.



Help your little ones achieve a comfortable, safe and warm night sleep with Baby Deedee.

Product Love: Handmade Nomenclature


I'm always looking for one of a kind decor to add to Jack's room and when I found HandmadeNomenclature, I knew their unique signs would be the perfect addition to his wall decor.

Each sign is crafted from scrap plywood hand-cut with a bandsaw, then sanded and painted with whimsical patterns and colors using nontoxic paint. All pieces are completely unique and handmade to order - you have the option of selecting the a main color way, they will accent the background color with contrasting patterns.



Jack's gallery walls features family pictures, his first pieces of  art work, a special Native American print given by his great grandmother and other unique pieces.


All Handmade Nomenclature signs stand by themselves so you can prop them on shelfs, mantles or dressers. Jack decided he wanted to display his sign on his gallery wall.  Shop for your personalized Handmade Nomenclature sign here.
