Adam's Woodland Birthday Party

Now, apart from being a knitter, I'm not the craftiest person in the world. Which is why I was super proud of how Adam's DIY first birthday party turned out!

Adam's Newborn Photos

Adam is turning one on July 1st (I cry every time I remember this). As I've counted down the weeks and days to his first birthday, I've been looking at photos and videos from this past year. You know, to make myself even sadder. Anywayyyy, I then realized that I haven't actually shared the photos from his newborn photoshoot, shot by the amazing Emily of Emily Black Photography! they are. Come cry with me.

Babywearing Review: Aloha and Light Hemp Silk Ring Slings

I first discovered Aloha and Light in 2011, at a time when my babywearing days with the older boys were winding down and I didn't have a good reason to buy a ring sling. I remember following them on Instagram and coveting every ring sling they came out with. Now, thanks to an amazing buy-1-free-1 promotion back in December (and a friend in Melbourne who also wanted one), I finally have an Aloha and Light ring sling!
