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:

homeseed is such a neat paper goods company check out her a-dorable baby shower invites for my favorite site, minted! p.s. brides to be, check her wedding design out too -- i LOVE these!

This is such a sweet calendar for keeping track and it doesn't add too much pressure to record things. With the upcoming birth of my sweet baby girl, I anticipate loving her first smile and laugh. Liked them on Facebook.

My 1st baby is due in August - but my favorite moment so far was her crossing her legs as the tech was trying to determine "boy or girl" and then when she made a comment about her "coming out modest and not a pole dancer" she stuck out her tongue! And it is all captured on camera! LOVE MY BABY GIRL!!!!!

We had our second son early at 33wks and with his big brother Max around It's all I can do to keep track of ANY milestones! :) I'm trying much harder than I did with Max, but an adorable calander might actually make it possible. Although his "adjusted age" makes him just a month old, he's giving us coy little smiles and is doing my favorite... sleeping 4hrs at a time :)

I liked the page and I am so excited about this giveaway! Our first baby is due July 7th and I would LOVE to fill this calendar up with happiness! :) I think baby laughs are my favorite...and yawns...and sneezes. Not sure about my fav milestone yet, I'm sure I'll love them all! Thank you!

I adore this idea! Beautiful calendar & concept, Kristen! My favorite milestone so far has been hearing "mama" from my sweet angel :)

Oh I absolutely love this! I would love to be able to use it to document our little ones first year.
I'm not sure what my favorite milestone is yet since our baby won't come till June but my favorite pregnancy milestone was hearing the baby's heartbeat for the first time.

This would be the perfect gift for my endearingly thoughtful and very pregnant best friend.

i am not pregnant but my favorite milestone was when my best friend told me that she was pregnant a few weeks ago- this would make a PERFECT gift for her. thank you for sharing!

We have been looking for a way to document our little guy's first year and this is amazing- an even better way than i had imagined- keeping my fingers crossed!!

No milestones yet...our little guy is due in June. So far, though, my favorite thing is feeling him move around. This would be perfect and not overwhelming for keeping track of everything.

I love Kristen's work, her blog is so adorable too. I'm going to need to snag one of these too, not pregnant yet, but someday!

i have a good friend that is expecting twins, this would be such a quick and easy way for her to record all of the special moments during their first year. i don't have any babes of my own yet, but i think that seeing them smile for the first time will be amazing. i liked her on FB. :-)

what a sweet giveaway! i have a few friends who would love this gift. i think my favorite baby mileston (and take this with a grain of salt, as i am not a mother!) are baby laughs. they are so cute!

Love this! and sorry you're so tired! said a little prayer for you! (totally been there)

Baby's first REAL (non-gas related) smile. What a milestone!! Now that she started she just doesn't stop! We would love the baby book, we are way behind on documenting these first 6 weeks.
