We gave a Discovery Kit and a video camera to three families with little ones and asked them to capture their holiday moments together. Here’s a look at some of our favorite moments . . .
We wish you and your family a safe, happy and joyous time together this Holiday season. May your 2011 be filled with many more wonderful discoveries!
Isn’t it such a neat sight to watch your little one discover something new? As the stay at home mom of two beautiful girls, ages two and four months old, my house is a world of discovery each day! I love watching my daughters’ eyes sparkle when they learn something new. As a parent, it brings a new meaning to life once you’ve seen things through your child’s eyes.
At birth, my youngest daughter was diagnosed with Down Syndrome. Each milestone she surpasses is a celebration for our family. We are so proud of her! Even at just four months old, she amazes me with her strength every day. Her newest discovery is that she has a thumb and that it’s tasty! I’ll never forget the first time I caught her sucking her thumb. Her eyes were as big as saucers, trying to figure out what she had found and how it ended up in her mouth! Whatever it was, you More >
We’re excited to have Find My Car Seat as this month’s Baby Einstein guest blogger! This month, she discusses her decision to return to work, a step that can be extremely difficult for new parents. Read on to hear about how she handled the separation anxiety with her little one when he went to day care for the first time.
After my first day back to work, I walked into the daycare room to pick up my son, then 16 months old. He saw me and smiled like I never saw him smile before. He reached his arms out to me, and as I picked him up he threw his arms around my head and hugged me tighter than I had ever been hugged before. This was the first time that he had ever hugged me with so much emotion.
Going back to work was a hard decision to make. I wanted so badly to be a stay at home mom and be there for every moment of my son’s life. More >
Hi Parents – I know that many of you have asked some great questions on Facebook and Twitter. There was one question that really caught my attention because it comes up in almost every family at some point during their children’s lives.
Marissa Neilson wrote, “If I were to get my daughter (8-months) a pet that she can grow up with, what would be the best pet? (one that if she beats on it a little it will still be fine, not attack, etc.). Thanks!”
A very popular question, Marissa! So many parents wonder about the right way to introduce pets into a growing family. I would recommend that if you want your daughter to have a pet, wait until she expresses an interest in animals and asks for a pet that she can help take care of and co-own with you. It will benefit the family in the end as she will be more attached to the pet and careful about More >
This month we welcome the fabulous Mommyfriend as our guest blogger. She is sharing a very relatable first for many parents, that first moment when you see your older child lock eyes and become instantly bonded with their little baby sibling. It’s a feeling of joy that is forever in your heart and we are so glad to share Mommyfriend’s experience.
Love at First Sight By: Mommyfriend
The baby of our family, known as “Little BooBoo” will be turning 3 years old this month. As we prepare to celebrate him, I’m reminded of the day I became a believer in love at first sight.
From the moment we told our only son that he was about to become a big brother, he was ready. He was ready to be the big brother to a baby sister whom he decided would be named “Cinderella”. I asked him how he would feel if he ended up with a little brother instead and with More >
As we experience each first moment with our baby we realize how truly special the simple things in life are. We are excited that our dear friend Blue-Eyed Bride is joining us as our first Baby E guest blogger to share a recent fun first trip to the barber with her adorable son.
When our baby boy was first born, it was hard to imagine him doing anything other than sleeping and eating. Sure, I knew that someday he’d say his first word and take his first steps, but those days seemed such a long way away when we were in the middle of 2 a.m. feedings and diaper changes.
I did know, though, that I wanted to make sure that when those first moments happened, that I was there to see them, marvel over them, record them, and put them in his baby book.
Over the past 14 months, we have been so fortunate to More >
