Baby Days Memories

I’ve heard some parents say that they can’t wait for their child to walk, talk, start playing sports, etc. For me, I’m always trying to slow the clock down! Although the first few weeks of being a new mother were scary at times, I miss the days that my infant son would sleep on my chest. Oh how I wish I could have more of those baby snuggles! My son is two years old now and I love every stage he’s been through (okay, maybe I haven’t loved the tantrums) and I’m not in any rush for him to grow up to be an independent little man. We have so many great memories of all of his firsts – first smile (my husband said he kind of looked like ET and he smiled for the first time), his first steps (to go grab a toy, of course), our first failed attempt at solid food…all great memories that I’ve jotted down for our scrapbook. You know, the scrapbook that new mothers have every intention of completing yet 2.5 years later it still remains a pile of stickers, decorative paper, pictures and treasured memories scribbled on scrap paper?

I am so glad that I captured so many of these memories in photographs and in home videos. Here are a few of my personal favourites that I’m excited to share with my son for years to come!

First time playing with bubbles & the expression is priceless.


First embarrassing picture taken by mom. Sorry kid, there will be a lot more of these.

Baby Days

First time eating carrots – they were not a hit.

Baby Days

First sleigh ride…you know, the time we took you out after the snow had already melted because we were too afraid of you getting cold when there was snow on the ground.

Baby Days

Your first bike ride…in the basement. Safety first! {wink} You were so excited!

Then of course there are the many videos of first steps. I love this video of my son watching and laughing at a video of himself falling down while learning to walk. It’s important to be able to laugh at yourself, right?

Before my son was born, I did a lot of shopping to prepare for his arrival. I always kept an eye on sales and stocked up on essentials whenever I saw a good deal. Organized shopping trips mean more time to spend with baby making memories! It was such a relief to have this shopping done before he arrived because after he was born I wanted to rest at home and enjoy as much snuggle time as I could. Of course, there were a few items that I didn’t know I’d need until after he arrived so there still were a few trips to the store. Honestly though, what new mother doesn’t want to go out to the store to load up on adorable items for the new baby? After all, there are so many cute outfits and new gadgets to try out! What I love about shopping at Sears is that it’s like a one-stop shop. You can outfit your baby and your nursery all in one location. One item that we absolutely loved was our rocking chair. I have so many sweet memories of nursing my son and rocking him to sleep in that chair.

Baby Days At Sears:

From January 17-30, The Baby’s Room in Sears will be celebrating Baby Days! What exactly is Baby Days? It’s your chance save money while loading up on the essentials you’ll need for all of your baby’s stages along with some adorable extras. During Baby Days, you can save 15% off almost everything in The Baby’s Room including nursery furniture, strollers, monitors and more. There will also be great deals on infant apparel. My tip for you – load up on a variety of sizes now because your infant will grow so quickly!

Another tip: Plan Ahead. Make a list of what you want to buy ahead of time so you don’t get too distracted by those adorable little socks and forget to pick up some of the essentials. Start browsing The Baby’s Room products here.
