The inspiration for this post is a recent post from GnomeAngel. Read her post here.
So, here are the 5 things I couldn't live without this past January.
1. Black leather mitts
It has been cold this month. I mean, it's January in Ontario, of course it is cold. Without a doubt, my black leather mitts have helped me keep warm. Nice soft leather on the outside, toasty polar fleece on the inside. Quick to warm up my fingers, even if I left them in the car overnight.
2. Bath time
My little one LOVES the bath. Without fail, putting Maggie into a nice warm tub of water brings out her smiles and giggles. Splashing and chasing toys around the tub are common sights. This time of day makes me thankful that I am a mum.
|Bath time! Happy baby!|
3. Calendar app
I have been leaning on this app all month. I am not able to remember events in the same way as when I was younger. Pile on pregnancy brain, followed by baby brain (these are real afflictions, people!) and I will not be anywhere unless it is in my calendar.
4. My photographer
Who knew that one day I would be able to say that I have a preferred photographer? I am so glad that I found Photography & Design by Jennifer Hall. She takes fantastic photos. Below are a sample of the pics I have from my maternity, newborn and 6 month photo shoots. We just did a Valentine's Day mini shoot, as well. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!
5. Nap time
This one is a no brainer! Maggie has been teething so there are days when she is whiney and clingy and I can't get anything done. On one hand, I try to treasure these times because soon enough she won't want anything to do with me. But, on the other, nap time gives me a well deserved break.
I'm hoping that this is the start of a blogging renewal. Thanks for the inspiration, GnomeAngel!
More to come,
