If you'd like to play along this month using Instagram... here are the prompts for May!  



  1. She is such a doll. And a gorgeous mama too. Just be careful with the Bumbo. . .you might have just been doing a quick photo op because her outfit went so well with the seat, but remember that Bumbos are not supposed to be used until babies are around 4 months old. I'm really not alarmist, but when babies spend time being propped to sit straight up before their back muscles are actually strong enough to do it on their own, it can affect their spinal development. I actually never bought a Bumbo for my girls because I feel like they have a really small window of usefulness--from the time the baby's back is strong enough to actually support sitting up straight (as opposed to being fully supported in a carseat, swing, etc.) until they can actually sit on their own, it's only a month or two. Because the Bumbo is really meant to support babies in that exact window--strong enough to sit up, but just not very good at it yet, as it keeps them from toppling over. I do think they are GREAT for that window, it was just too short for me to want to spend the money. I used the Boppy for that purpose instead. But anyway, just remember that even though the Bumbo CAN make her sit up straight, it's not necessarily good for her spine when she's this little.

  2. Love all the pictures! Especially love the one of you and E on the ocean, the one of E and L kissing, and the bumbo seat one. That dress is SOO cute! Wish I had a baby girl I could buy it for as a gift. Thanks for sharing all the photos - I always look forward to these posts. (Perhaps I should just make time to review Instagram).

    Also, should I keep a separate dish of sugar for Jack? Or just use the one I bake with? ;)

  3. Love ALL the photos Kate. That girl of yours is way too cute.

  4. Also, mean to ask about the band-aids - hope all is okay!!! Nothing ruins a good chunk of thigh like a band-aid.

  5. What a cute little gal you have! Also: we have the same Bumbo. Though Henry doesn't have any outfits that match his. Which I clearly need to remedy.

  6. L-O-V-E this. L's big blue eyes are as pretty as her mama's! And I agree that dust bunnies, particularly of dog hair, are the worst.

  7. FUN pics.!!! My pediatrician TOLD me to start using the bumbo (and our girls are only a few days apart), and I'm pretty sure she's in the know on spinal development!

  8. I love the old school picture. I look exactly the same as I did in high school so mine are all kind of boring.

  9. I am inspired and think I just found a new blog topic - thank god! What beautiful photos and such a beautiful family!


happy little comments!
