Carter's Little Baby Basics

Sadie's birthday is TOMORROW. Let me say that again. My baby is turning ONE whole year old tomorrow.

Someone pinch me, I can't believe it. Fastest year of my life, hands down.

Carter's Little Baby Basics

To celebrate her birthday week, Sadie and I had a mommy + baby play date! (Really, we have a play date basically every day...but this one was special because big brother was at school!) I love spending one on one time with my sweet girl and try my best to do it often.

This girl is growing up so fast and can do something new each and every day. This week I left her alone for one minute so I could run to the bathroom....and when I came back out she was gone. 
G-O-N-E. 
Guess where she was? All the way upstairs in the playroom. Girlfriend climbed those stairs by herself and found some toys to play with. I couldn't believe it! Needless to say, I put the baby gate up later that day, ha!

Sadie lives to play. She could play non-stop all day every day, just like her big brother. She sure keeps me on my toes!

One of Sadie's favorite toys to play with is her tea set. It makes me so happy to see her enjoying something I remember loving as a kid! I'll happily drink fake tea all day long just to make her happy. 

Since Sadie is always on the go, I love to dress her in the most comfortable and soft clothes I can find. Every parent knows that Carter's makes the best, sweetest, and softest baby clothes around! They are always my go-to for cute play clothes.

Carter's Little Baby Basics line is hands down my favorite for play clothes. Every single piece is soft and sweet. And I can't get enough! I especially love that their pieces can be mixed and matched. I always carry at least one bodysuit and one pair of pants in my purse at all times. You never know when your baby will need a spare outfit. And thanks to Carter's Sadie always looks cute!

This busy girl would much rather play than take pictures. Aren't those chubby thighs the cutest? I wish they looked that cute on me too.

Sadie's wardrobe is filled with the cutest clothes from Carter's. They have the essentials for every occasion! I'm obsessed with that little belly....it just screams feed me more ice cream! And I love that Carter's clothing is super durable and washes really well....which is a must when you have a messy eater on your hands!

To finish off our mommy and baby time, Sadie and I had an ice cream date out in our yard. I'm so thankful for one on one time with this little lady.

Girlfriend demolished that ice cream cone. She let me steal a few bites, but for the most part tackled that bad boy on her own. Like mama like daughter, I guess.

Refusing to share any more of her ice cream. Stinker.

  1. With 3 kiddos, one on one time is hard. Sometimes it's just little snuggles or going out to push them on the swing.

  3. Happy birthday to your little girl!

    I have 3 boys - a 5 year old & 3 year old twins. When the big one is at pre-school, Grandma takes one twin and I take the other so they each get one on one time. We usually run some errands and like to go on donut dates :) My oldest gets one in one time when his brothers nap. He loves playing catch in the yard!

  4. I've only got one kiddo right now so one on one time is pretty easy but once there is another in the picture we will make sure to take time for separate mommy/daddy play dates so each get 1x1 attention!

  5. I try and make one on one time when my other kid is sleeping or preoccupied or have daddy play with one and I play with another

  6. Carters is my favorite and they are absolutely killing it this season!!! Plus, they have a huge range of sizes so HELLO MATCHING!

    Sadie cracks me up on snapchat. She is so busy and I love it. The stairs story is hilarious and terrifying.

    Lastly, her birthday?! Wahh!!! I can't handle all these little ones turning ONE. It's too much!

  18. On my son's birthday I took him shopping and let him pick out a toy while sister stayed home with Grandma. I even let him pick out a candy bar too!

  19. I try to spend one on one time with each of my kiddos while the other naps. My youngest still takes a morning nap so I get to play with my oldest then. Usually my youngest wakes up from his afternoon nap before the oldest one gets up, so we get to play together then.

    Happy birthday to your baby girl!!

  32. I get lots of one on one time with my youngest since I am still breastfeeding. I love stealing him away and having those moments. My oldest...we go on shopping trips together why baby brother naps.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I make time with my oldest (almost 5) by playing together when the baby naps, and we also will go out to parks or for lunch together. I am always with the girls so I get creative with how to spend one on one time with each daughter. Then on the weekends, I have my husband take my older daughter with him if he goes out so I can reconnect with baby!

  34. Stella and I love to play in her room--cooking and picnics, of course. ;) Wyatt is all about playing outside in the water hose! And they love our park picnics!

  38. I try to stagger my kids' naps to get one on one time with each of them. That way my son and I can play soccer or build with blocks uninterrupted, then my daughter and I can cuddle, read, play with little people until big brother wakes up : )
