Merry Paradismas

Merry Christmas! I hope you all had an amazing holiday with all of your loved ones. We just returned from Mexico + jumped right into the holiday festivities. 

PRESENT RECAP

This year was extra special for us because it was Rush's first Christmas. I am not going to lie it's kinda tough trying to figure out what a 7 1/2 month old likes. I mean clothes is always great but, let's be honest, that's really for me. #fashionmama... +  they have several wonderful baby toys out there but I am totally that mom trying to NOT have "that" playroom. You all know what I'm talkin' about. #lessismore

Some toys we were not sure of. They are growing on us.

If you stop by often, which I hope you do, I put up a blog post about Baby Cubby recently. It truly is one of my favorite places to shop for Rush because they have curated a nice little shop of amazing baby products - from toys to gear.

My favorite mom purchase was this awesome shape cube "OomebeeCube" by Fat Brain Toys. I recently have become obsessed with this toy brand, btw.

The shapes are rubbery + textured, making them a great sensory toy + perfect for teething. Each shape is tethered to a corner of the cube as well, so there is no worry of losing pieces or even stepping on them - which is the worst.

Ornaments were a big hit as well.

PRETTY PRESENTS

Wrapping presents is one of my favorite things to do each year. Some people dread it but I love it. This year I went really traditional + simple. I took out the traditional green + mixed in some blue + gold. I used simple silk ribbon, twine + added a little buffalo print in there for something different.

My favorite place to get all my wrapping gear, Homegoods or TJ Maxxx.

TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT

After all the Christmas fun, it was snuggles with dada in his new Cubs hat (GO CUBS) + a nice 2 hour nap on mama. Rush by far was the best present, EVER.
