1 Week to Go

Here are my top five tidbits for this week.


Elin had a major milestone this week–she slept in a regular bed!  She still has never attempted to escape her crib so we are leaving her in there at night, but during the day while I am work, her Nana started putting her in the bed this week with a toddler rail on it and she slept just fine.  I am so proud of her for being a big girl!



My mom found this unopened letter from my one of my nephews to me.  I believe it was from a long time ago and somehow got lost in their toys,  I opened it up and saw a beautiful drawing of my house. How random and sweet?!



This week Ralph Lauren had a huge sale and I stocked on on many summer and fall essentials for Elin. I just love their adorable classic dresses for girls! I am excited for this seersucker dress for this summer!



Elin has had a blast riding around in a wagon at her Nana and Papa’s and I just love this picture of her riding with their doggy, Daisy.



Elin’s birthday is officially one week away and my weekend is going to be filled with making all theses bags and boxes form into a party.  Wish me luck!
