{PARTY} Harper Lane's Sweet Onederland

First birthdays are the sweetest...first birthday cake, first birthday dress, first "Happy Birthday" song. Photographed by Kristen Weaver, one of my absolute favorite photogs, this Sweet Onederland is filled with as many first as fabulous details. Glitter, chevron, fabric banners, picture banners, mason jars, paper straws, oh my...I'm in party love. Loaded with details and DIY's there are more fun projects in this party than I can count. I'm smitten with the doily year of the baby banner and the Onederland banner with each letter decorated in a different kind of gorgeousness. With a first birthday like this I just can't wait for what Harper's Momma has in store for the second. Happy Birthday Harper Lane your first birthday Onederland was just the sweetest!

Check back tomorrow for Harper Lane's sweetest first birthday photo session with Kristen Weaver.

{REVIEW} Chicco NaturalFit Feeding and Soothing System

Disclosure: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Chicco. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and as a thank you for participating.

When the masterminds at Chicco's Happiness Lab, rolled out an advanced feeding & soothing system I was beyond excited to be one of the first to try it. Chicco (Pronounced kee-ko) is a family owned brand with over 50 years of experience and innovation, available on 6 continents and 120 countries.

Introducing the Chicco NaturalFit with 4 bottle sizes and 3 stages to choose from (newborn-12 months) the advanced system grows with your little, with each size adapting to your changing baby.

Stage 1 Squeezing Phase (Newborn +)  Angled newborn or medium flow nipple made of soft silicone, which always stays full of milk (comes in 5oz or 8oz bottles)
Stage 3 Transition Phase (4+ Months) The angled nipple is replaced by an upright nipple to adapt to your 4 month old who probably has good head and neck control. There are three position on the nipple allowing for three different flow types (slow, medium and fast)
Stage 4 Sucking Phase (6+ Months) The new elongated nipple supports your growing baby's sucking motion, the base is less rounded for tighter lip support and encourages correct swallowing

My favorite features: 

• Designed for easy transitioning between breast and bottle (great for pumped milk or formula supplementation)
• Soft flexible nipple mimics mother's breast
• Twin anti-colic valves help prevent gas & spit up
• 0% BPA
• Wide bottle is easy to hold & fill
• Flexors at the base of the nipple enhance elasticity
• Only 2 parts to wash (bottle & nipple)

The Chicco NaturalFit Pacifiers are a great addition to the line. Developed by orthodontists they adapt to the shape of a baby's mouth, support oral development, and might just bring you & your little one some soothing peace.

My favorite features: 

• Extra soft silicone nipple is designed to evenly distribute the tongue's pressure against the palate
• Narrow base for extra flexibility and optimal closure of the mouth
• Ergonomic shield
• Ventilation holes for air circulation and to help prevent the gathering of saliva
• Sterilizable case

The bottles and pacifiers along with the impressive selection of accessories like the electric steam sterilizer, microwave sterilizer, bottle and food warmer, gift sets, and more are available at buybuy BABY the end of January 2014. Developed to improve everyday life for parents and children these Italian made goodies are a great addition to any nursery. I hope you enjoy the Chicco NaturalFit line as much as my little one and I did.

{PARTY} Gingerbread House Birthday Party

Does your little one have a December birthday? Don't fight the season! Embrace it!  With an already decorated home for the holiday having a gingerbread house themed party is perfection.

With Mom's creativity and lots of DIY's this December birthday boy and his party guests got to celebrate by decorating a gingerbread house, writing letters to Santa, making Santa faces and the traditional pin the nose on a snowman. The party ended with a red velvet gingerbread cake and full tummies from sneaking gingerbread house decorations.
