Michael recently freshened up our upstairs decks for spring. He painted the floor panels a beautiful dove-gray, planted flowers that we picked out at a local nursery, and rearranged our outdoor furniture so that we could sit back and enjoy the city skyline. During the week, this is my sanctuary slash office. I can work comfortably on our rooftop, in what becomes an additional living space during these warmer months – sweet! There was just one problem, providing baby Skye a safe place to lie down. I also tend to move around a lot between the four floors of our town-home, and lugging around a hefty bouncer from one floor to the next was not going to solve my problem, it was going to intensify it and give me a bad back to go with it. Thanks to our new friends over at DockATot, my dilemma is no more, with what I believe to be the best thing ever invented. When we found out, they were sending a solution c/o DocATot for us to try, I was ecstatic. So, how do we like it? WE 100% LOVE IT. Thank you DockATot, you are making parent life easier. This lightweight portable bed can be carried around with you to every room in the house, so that no matter where you are, the baby has a comfy and safe place to rest. It also has a unique, breathable fabric, that makes co-sleeping with your infant that much safer. Last night Michael and I placed Skye in the middle of the bed in her Dock, and in a blink of an eye, she was fast asleep. I kid you not. We did a little happy dance, whispering “THIS IS AWESOME!”. The bed comes in two sizes to fit babies and toddlers, and they also come in a wide range of stylish fabrics to choose from.

Singing to make her smile. Holding her in my arms, while she sleeps. I cherish every moment I spend with my darling daughter Skye. Through the smooth sailing and especially through the choppy waters, I love you baby girl. Happy 11 weeks old.
I’ve been so looking forward to these warmer days of spring, where I can have fun dressing up Skye for picnics and family outings. We’re excited and in love with her first pair of shoes, c/o Freshly Picked. They’re gorgeous leather moccasins, and the color of orchids. They fit perfectly on those little feet she enjoys moving about. Skye looks eager to start crawling and keep up with her big sister. The girl has places to go. In fact Michael and I just booked a family trip to Disney World and we are super excited! Skye will be 3 months by then and that’s the perfect time to travel with a baby they say. Zoë was telling her all about princesses and Mickey Mouse last night, we recorded it, it will bring tears to your eyes, so sweet. These are the moments. The moments you cherish and hold close to your heart. One day I will find these moccasins in a special memory box, safely tucked away in the closet. The girls will be grown, but when I hold her first pair of shoes in my hands, it will be like a time machine back to when I could hold her in my arms. I’ll remember.
