Gift Guide: Baby’s 1st Christmas

header collage

Ahhhhh, Baby’s 1st Christmas.  I remember Lyla’s so well.  I was stressed about doing all the fun stuff I was supposed to do – pics with santa √ Tree hunting with photos galore √ Christmas cards sent out with adorable family pic in a timely manner √.  I was trying to make this first year the best most magical one ever because I would remember it and I would tell her stories about it  and because she would look back at pictures and know that her mom tried to make every moment the best ever.  I didn’t do any of that because I thought she would remember it.  She doesn’t, at all.  She was born three days after Christmas, she was almost 1 when we all got to have our first Christmas together.  Instead of toys and things, I put yogurt drops and puffs in her stocking.  I couldn’t get away with that now!

Don’t sweat the small stuff and remember every snuggly moment, every glimmer in your baby’s eye when they look at the sparkly lights and ornaments on the Christmas tree, and know that every other Christmas without them in your life was nothing compared to this one and all the future ones we are all lucky enough to experience with children.
