Even though Memphis got the memo early this year, today is officially the first day of summer. This weekend, we have movie plans, dinner plans, outdoor plans, many errands, and our second Vacation Bible School program. I also really need to clean the house and get caught up on laundry. Finding time to do everything has been really hard these days. Dain just finished up baseball and has already gone on to the next sport. That's right -- I'm officially a football mom! Rory starts soccer soon too. Most of our evenings will be spent on a field somewhere, sweating and drinking water. Even though it puts us in a time crunch, I wouldn't have it any other way. I seriously love being a sports mom.
This summer is also going to be about babies, babies and more babies. Every time I look at Facebook, there's another announcement or ultrasound picture. I love shopping for new moms and teeny tiny babies. I like to buy things I know every mom needs. I typically get diapers, wipes, burp cloths, and those handy zippered onesies. Unless I'm pushed for time, I almost always include a personalized baby blanket. Because who doesn't love one of those?
Seriously, how cute are these baby girl blankets?
What's your favorite item to get new mom + baby?
