big enough to bumbo, bless, and bathe

I’m into alliteration lately.
And I’ve got a new sewing tutorial in the works for Monday!

In the mean time, here’s what’s been going on this month.
– Clara loves the bath.Ā  If you’re standing next to her, watch out for Shamu splashing.
– Casey blessed her at our church in April and it was such a sweet prayer.Ā  I didn’t sew her dress since I found something simple and perfect at baby Gap (the same thing happened when Lucy was born).
– She fits in the bumbo seat and looks so cute doing it
– Owen loves being a big brother and though he wipes my own kisses off his cheeks….he has no problem planting plenty on Clara.

All in all, life is good.

See you on Monday!

  1. she hold her head beautifully…

  2. That little peanut of yours is so cute! She just looks so content. šŸ™‚

    Gorgeous photos, gorgeous family! I always love this stage of babies. So glad you’re all having fun!

  4. Oh I love the one of the back of her sweet little head in the bumbo!

    Love the non-traditional “blessing” dress. I feel some people over dress babies and they’re just uncomfortable. I will take many notes from your blog when we have children!!

  6. Ah, what a sweetie. Such lovely photos too. My two got so chubby that I’d pick them up from the Bumbo and it would come too.

  7. Ack! The hair – how I love the hair! My twin girlies are five months old and still pretty bald šŸ™‚

    p.s. I linked to your freezer paper stencil tute today; I hope you don’t mind.

  8. Ohmygoodness look at the cheeks on that little one. Too sweet! I wish my Clara had that much hair!

    pureeeee cuteness!!!!!!

    Oh, little one’s kisses are just the best. My boy gives the stickiest, snottiest, slimiest kisses when I drop him off in the mornings, and they are truly about my favorite thing all day. Thanks for the lunchtime reminder!

  11. What a sweetie pie! I love the shot from behind of her in the bumbo with her baby chicken hair sticking up.

  12. Your baby is darling! Thanks for sharing your sweet pics!

      ooopsss …. me thinks i saw a hat … no, just a profusion of lovely hair … sorry!

  14. 18) Kelly

    All of your children are beautiful! I’m about to have my 3rd- a girl, so I hope all my kids are going to get along as well as yours do!

  15. oh so lovely! i love the photo where you see her totally in the bumbo most. i’m gonna take this photo too !

    Clara and Owen look so much alike. šŸ™‚ In the side by side photos, I realized that their chins are the same. šŸ™‚ Your kids are adorable!

  17. Beautiful pictures! What do you use for your white floor and background behind Clara in the bumbo? Do you just happen to have a white floor and wall, or is this set up?

  18. 22) Spark*Amy

    Such a cutie! Those cheeks!! My girls had those and now they have gotten all skinny and tall on me. šŸ™

  19. She is beautiful! I’m jealous – my own baby was never a sitter, I couldn’t get him to stay in the bumbo without crying. He wanted to be held or playing on the floor surrounded by plenty of things he could touch and explore. Love her cheeks!

  20. 24) Claudia

    We made your maracas is my kindergarten class today! Oh such big fun!!
    Shared the idea with other kinder classes! Lotsa shakin and bakin going on!!
    Thanks for the clever idea!!

  21. 25) amanda

    Oh my gosh how do you deal with those big beautiful eyes!? All of your kids have them, I would be a big huge puddle every time they looked at me and the cookie jar would be empty!

  22. Love this post! So, I wanted to get Natalie a bumbo – lime green! šŸ™‚ I didn’t get one for my boys. I just borrowed one for Reid when he was 5 months because he had a flat head. With Natalie being the third I’m going to need a place to prop her while my hands are busy with other things. And she’ll be off her head with the bumbo. I am so paranoid about that now. šŸ™‚ Anyway…my point is I didn’t know when she would be old enough for one so soon. I didn’t know the bumbo would support her back so well…at least it looks like it does for Clara in your pictures. I’ll have to order one so it’s ready for Natalie when her neck gets strong enough in the next month or so. Yay! Can’t wait.

    Sorry for the long comment. I just like posts where you write about details and how you’re doing. šŸ™‚ Her blessing dress is darling. I heart baby cardigans.

  23. Are you LDS? Just wondering if that is what blessing you were talking about :). I’m debating whether to make a blessing dress for my baby girl (expected 7/1) or just buy one. Gap has a lot of sweet white dresses right now, I was even eying the exact one you chose.

  24. So happy to see you used a gap dress for blessings too. I did with my last and kept wondering if she will feel bad I didn’t get an heirloom sort of thing. I just love the cute white sundresses and cardigans too. Hers looks exactly like my daughters. She is a doll!

  25. Oh she is just so adorable. I bet her eyes stay blue! šŸ™‚

  33. What a sweet little princess you have šŸ™‚ Wanted to pop by and say thank you for your kind words over at Rae’s blog- I’ve loved working with you every year šŸ™‚ (And, your pretty picture that Rae posted looks SO MUCH like Sara at Our Best Bites šŸ™‚ Made me laugh- I knew her way way back in Sunday school!

  34. Out of all these photos I swooned the most at your little man! He’s SO CUTE.

  35. *sigh* these pictures make me want another baby.

    she is beautiful! I love her sweet chunky cheeks!

  36. AMOREEEEEEEEE! She’s so cute! I want another baby too!!!??? :-0
    See you on monday! Perhaps one day I will learn to sew… What do you think?
    In the meantime I enjoy your work!

  37. Gorgeous! She is so cute. You are so great at taking pics and sharing.

  38. she’s to cute. My daughter is a few weeks older than yours and is being blessed next Sunday (mothers day), She is going to wear the same dress my older daughter wore, my sisters and I all wore it for our baptisms (I didn’t grow up LDS).
