Little L’s FOUR month anniversary! (giveaway)

Share Button

So much as happened in four months — kicking it off with the arrival of Little L on the 29th of January, things have just started falling into place for me.

This is all good by the way, because before it wasn’t looking so promising. I started writing for Disney Baby, I then got a few other writing jobs with and MamásLatinas and the biggest change of all, the one that I say saved me from ending up in an insane asylum was our move to a house. It has truly changed my life. I feel happier, freer and even more productive. I am now more focused than ever and working on my personal brand and business.

All of these wonderful milestones in my life are celebrated with my husband and kids. Oddly enough, Little L’s monthly pictures have also helped us remember everything we have accomplished and yes, you guessed it, it’s her FOUR MONTH ANNIVERSARY!

Four months of absolute cuteness!
Big brother M is the BEST helper. No jealously or strange behavior. I am very lucky to have two very cute kids!

We commemorate each month with monthly onesies from Culpeper General — how cute are these?! Shannon Carter, mom and business owner has specialty gifts for moms-to-be like my due date shirt as seen here and other shirts and baby suits to mark that first year.

They come in 6 or 12 month sets and make a great baby shower gift!

12 Month Onesies from Culpeper General

They make it easy to take those monthly update pictures and the plan here is to take all 12 and at the end of the year make one big collage and frame it. Not only is a great keepsake for you, but they are also a total hit with family — they love getting their monthly picture of Lucía in her onesie and tracking her growth.You can also follow what Little L has been up to at Disney Baby where she recaps her life every month and because she doesn’t know how to count, she shows you with her onesie. Smart, right?!

As a very proud mamá, I must share that my sweet Lucía is already rolling, she is full of giggles and smiles, and is thankfully sleeping through the night — ¡gracias mi amor!

Now for the good stuff — thanks to Shannon, we have a 6 month set of onesies to giveaway to one winner.

Good luck and remember to enjoy every moment with your baby.
