It was actually a hard decision at first because I was very tempted to "go green" all the way or go home. I looked at several of the "hybrid" brands where I wouldn't totally have to stand the ick factor all the way (gals, I'm squeamish) and could at least flush an insert that came inside of...

and I plan to continue to use it with baby L. The products are just outstanding in quality, function AND design, not to mention safe (thank you!!). I've been debating on what to do about a changing table/dresser, and whether or not to use the same pad with velour changing cover we had with...

Lightweight Organic Cotton Ultra 2-Stage Baby & Toddler Mattresscourtesy of Naturepedic (with two stages/sides, we can flip and use as she gets older and needs a softer mattress...it's waterproof...and it's only about 10 lbs. The organic cotton is soft, safe and very durable!) 5. White...

I go into the second baby with much more realistic expectations, darlings. The first time around I barely even thought about bottles. Baby C would be solely breastfed, with not a bottle or a pacifier...because it could "confuse" him. Well somewhere in the hazy fog of, oh, the first few week...

baby L actually despised those sink baths we first gave her, and didn't even love the baby bath. Once we turned it into a "big girl bath" where she could sit and play instead of recline? Sold. She'll splash all day. In fact, lately she thinks it's cool of her to attempt to stand, so we're...

It's not baby C.'s FIRST BIRTHDAY (squeal!) until Friday. But since it's Whiny Wednesday here at I Heart Heels, today is our birthday edition - drumroll, please. My, oh my, what a year it's been. In more ways than one - haha! (All you moms are laughing with me because you know.) Throughout...

One of the final things I remembered I might need for baby L. as I prepare for her arrival was baby mitts...eek! Such a small thing, literally (!), but so needed when she's first born. I remember little C. always trying to scratch himself, and we would use the onesies with the built-in mittens...

You know how the first six months, ok year, of your baby's life are a big muddled blur of no sleep and raging hormones? And you know how there are those moments that send you into a deep, deep frenzy and then once they're all over with you just laugh uncontrollably? Yeah, ya do. I mean, even...

goodness gracious! baby L turned ONE! I'm so not ready to turn her into "little L," so until she starts walking let's call it a day and keep it at baby L for now, k? ;) I'm so, so happy with the way her pink, gold and white first birthday party turned out, I could just stare at photos all...
