baby books.

my sweet lil izzy looooves books.

at one of her baby showers her hosts {my sisters} requested books as cards to go with each baby gift! it was so amazing and now that izzy can get into evvvvverything, she gets them out everyday!

hubs and i {izzy in tow, of course} stopped in at acme gifts this weekend on our day trip to see my brother graduate! this is my faaaaavorite shop in manhattan. seriously, hubby said he would buy me something from here every single week if we just had one around home... because i love it that much. super cool mod stuff, fun games, toys, books, you name it. if its quirky or delightful it's in there.

anyway i digress... the point is they carried my fave babylit books!! i have been wanting to snag some for izzy b and havent gotten around to it so it was so sweet to open them up and have a peek!

adorable little baby novels with bright colors... just fantastic board books so they are perfect for tiny fingers!

iz picked out moby dick and romeo & juliet.

great choices baby love ;)

eeeek. now i am sure she wants to whole set!

izzy baby is 9 months old.

sheesh, i don't remember time moving as fast as it does post-izzy!

hubs and i sure don't sleep 12 hours straight anymore {lol}... don't order pizza at 2 am or see 25 theater movies in one summer... {yes, that actually happened} but life is fabulous and we wouldn't want it any other way!

our sweet little munchkin is such a joy and i'm loving this phase of babyhood. so much crawling, scooting, standing, moving around furniture, reading books, playin' puzzles and toys... ah! love it love it love it.

her nine month photo shoot pics turned out darling as ever {by the fab gina} despite izzy thinking this wasn't a day for lots of smiles... she's still pretty darn cute!

{more photos over here}

sweet tea and summertime.

loving these aqua tumbler lids via the mason bar company!

well hello there summertime drinks!

now if i could just get the hubby some time to work on the pool..... ..... .....

spoiled mommy pants.

hubs bought me my fave new kelly moore bag!!
happy mama's day to me!

i looooove it... in its perfect shade of blue!

i already packed it with all the essentials for me and baby.

the cushioned sides... ooh lala...
a removable insert {for super easy packing}
and it holds everything i need without being big or clumsy.

i basically combined 4 bags into 1!

and i especially love feeling confident that the camera is safe inside and can travel!

i sure married a sweetie :)
mwah... thanks love!

spice up your ice

ahhh, these look so refreshing.

and since the weather insists on feeling like summer over here its probably time to make some flavored ice cubes!

{first off of course i have to actually find ice cube trays... should probably keep these around for kiddo snacks anyhow!}

these spicy ideas make for a perfect combination or perhaps interesting ones?! either way worth a try!

baby hearts chewbeads.

hubby and izzy gave me a sweet little gift of chewbeads for easter and babes and mama are loving them! i think izzy was up to at least 5 broken necklaces, the other much more expensive kinds, lol.

her two tiny teeth popped in last week so she likes to nibble even more!

probably gotta order some more in all these fun colors... :)

tiny tots easter

baby ipie opened up her very first easter basket! 

can i you tell i will have oodles of fun with these from now on?!?! 

i started with a simple color scheme :: pinks & purples. but ended up with a bunch of greens and other color thrown in! still perfect for the spring and babies. 

a few things i had new and on hand. i tend to always add stuff onto orders to get free shipping, lol. do you guys hate paying for shipping as much as i do?! ha. i would rather get 8 more bucks worth of stuff ;) 

toys were much cuter than candy for her basket this year especially when her mama and daddy have to eat all the sweets! 

her gma v spoiled her with candy eggs and chocolate rabbits and a book and a bag full o candy {and now i sit here eating a cadbury} 

i heart easter gifts as we celebrate the greatest gift of all!

happy easter baby girl!
