I am up this week for Stash It Monday. I love using my stash. I love revisiting products that I loved and re falling in love with them.
Also for this layout I used the SpiegelMom Scraps Exclusive cut files for this layout as well. They were siting on my desk, yelling out to me to use. They were perfect with a photo I found of my daughter Cayden when she was a newborn.
She was so cute, and she loved to sleep. When I first brought her home, I used to have to take off all her clothes to get her to wake up in the middle of the night to eat. I would wait four hours, because I was thrilled to have a baby that actually slept! I mean what parent isn’t thrilled when they realize they don’t have to feel sleep deprived.
My oldest daughter, Leilani, used to get up every two hours when we first got her home. In fact she ended up not sleeping well at night at all. I think I slept that first month on the couch sitting up holding my daughter. SO naturally when Cayden slept through the night, if I let her I kinda wanted to savor that. I did realize at first though that she did need to eat, newborns need a lot of food. They need sleep too, but when she would take two bites of food and fall back asleep, the pjs came off. I would also try to tickle her feet, I would sit her up, and still she was persistent and tried to sleep.
Even at a very young age, I could tell this beauty would be stubborn. It’s fun seeing their personalities even as a newborn. Even though it is often difficult I am glad she has such a big personality.
It makes me a better parent.
I love this picture though. Now that it has been 7 years, I can remember the cuteness and those memories of the sleepy mommy doing everything she could to get up with an alarm and do what she needed to wake her little sleeping beauty for a midnight snack.
I hope you check out my process video over at the Crafty Maven Getaway Youtube Channel.
Here is a look at my finished layout.
