my fav way to track baby milestones (& a giveaway!!).

i'm sooo excited to share my favorite way i've been documenting ellie's first days! it all began when i was home in october & my mom showed me this amazing calendar she kept for me during my first year. it was so neat to see the people who came to see me when i was days old who are still a part of my life, or see when i first scooted backwards (real love is a mom who documents that!).

so, when i came across this adorable calendar, i couldn't e-mail kristen of homeseed fast enough to snag one. it's been such an easy, precious way to capture all of ellie's little moments, our visitors & outings. it will be even more fun to look back on with her in the year's to come. i have some other baby books i'm trying to keep up with, but this has ended up being my fav. i especially love the little pendants that tell you how many months old the baby is that month!

here's the best part -- kristen has been oh so generous enough to offer a calendar giveaway for you lovely t&f readers! all you have to do is give her a good old facebook like & leave a comment below with your favorite baby milestone (sitting up? crawling? smiling? the belly laugh?). this would be wonderful for your little one or your favorite parents-to-be as a gift! what a keepsake! hurry up & enter!

if you'd like to buy one: $25 + $2 for domestic shipping; email:
