-Holiday Gift Guide in Partnership with Baby Einstein-

I feel like it was just yesterday that Marloe was born! Its crazy to think that in just a few days my little baby girl will be two years old! Time surely does fly. I find myself more often savoring little moments we have together, because time passes by so quickly. I also have been reminiscing on photos and memories of Marloe as a tiny baby, the closer I get to bringing home our second bundle of joy!

I had a lot of help from people during my pregnancy with Marloe. So many people offered advice on what I would need for those first days, weeks, and months home with our new baby. A baby doesn't really need much those first couple months, except warm clothes/blankets, diapers, and MILK. They definitely require more when they start getting aware of their surroundings, and a little more curious and alert during the day. I felt like it truly happened overnight. One day I was folding laundry and had a hanger on my bed, when Marloe started reaching for it like crazy to play with. She was probably just 4 months old, and from then on she was ready to play! I had ZERO idea what to get her, and felt lost walking through the baby isles at the store. I didn't want to waste money on things she wouldn't use or like, but how was I supposed to know what she would like??? She couldn't talk or tell me! I looked online and texted some family members for recommendations! I bought a wide variety of things for her, and we went from there!!

Now that that is all behind me, and I see what worked for us, I decided to put together a little Holiday Gift guide for babies first year! If you're a parent looking for some gifts to get your little one, or a friend/family member trying to decide what to buy a little baby for the Holidays....then I got you covered with some of mine (and Marloes) favorite things! I saved or bought a lot of these for our next arrival coming in March, and recommend them to family and friends whenever they ask!

I feature lots of Baby Einstein products on my guide, because they are perfect for 0-6 and beyond! Marloe still really enjoys playing with her Baby Einstein Take ALong tunes, and likes to pretend its her cellphone lol! Also I love her Baby Einstein Musical Octoplush toy, because it has helped her learn her colors!!!
