Easter baskets : for baby and big kids!

Easter is just a couple weeks away! Gifts are definitely a love language of mine and while I try to be more minimalist I still love to do a little something each Easter. First, I do not buy cheap things that won’t last and second I like to find things they might need.

Here are my kid’s baskets and a few other ideas for both babies and older kids.

Remington’s Easter basket:

1. A book, “You Belong Here”

2. Bonnet

3. Sippy cup lid for mason jars, or a bottle top, also the jar cover.

4. Wooden animals.

5. Soft rattle, or this one.

6. Pacifier

7. Wooden toy, or this one.

Nellie’s Easter basket:

1. Nature journal. Adding a pack of colored pencils too.

2. Nail polish. Kid friendly!

3. Animal.

4. Swim suit. Also love this one.

5. Jelly shoes.

Jaxon’s Easter basket:

1. Night light.

2. Animal.

3. Nature journal.

4. Whale print.

5. Nature tee. Also this one.

Hello, I’m new here.

Meet Remington Locke Harvey!

Born March 6th at 2:31 am. He was our smallest baby at 6 lbs 4 oz and 18.5 inches long.

Born 3 weeks early, my water broke in the middle of the night, so our other two kids had to come to the hospital with us. Grandma was on her way but had a six hour drive and neither of my other two labors were that long. Because it was flu season and there have been a small measles outbreak in our area, they wouldn’t let the kids come into the delivery room. Anthony finally got them to let the kids come back (and so he could too) but they had to wear little face masks. It was cute but a kind of stressful start, thinking I’d have to do this all by myself. After a fairly short (but still not fun) labor (too short to get someone to give me an epidural like I wanted!) Remington was born while the kids watched videos on their kindles. And after only about 16 hours at the hospital we were on our way home! It was nice to get to “sleep” in our own bed. It has been almost four weeks now with our little guy and he loves to sleep, especially while being held, and gets very mad about being woken up, diaper changes, and baths. Basically he likes to be warm and cuddly.

We are all very much in love with our little Remington Locke.

We Are Still Here!

It has been SO long but we have a good reason!

Our little BOY should be joining us in about a month and though not really a part of our plan, we are so excited.

I guess he is very flexible because he likes to have a foot in front of his face. Also here is our family Christmas photo, the funny one, because it was really the best.

I’m guessing a lot of the next few posts will be about baby life. But I also have some school posts I want to share.
