DockAtot

I've already mentioned how much I love my DockAtot in this post, but, I've had a couple of friends who have been on the fence about getting one ask me how well I really like it. So I wanted to write up another quick review.  Plus, it seems like some of the cutest pictures I have of Cal are of him in his Dockatot, and I need an excuse to post them ;)

First off, my husband and I do not co-sleep (meaning sleep with Cal in our bed).  At night he sleeps in his Halo Swivel bassinet (which I also love). But the Dockatot is not just for co-sleeping.

Cal naps great in the Dockatot, and it's so nice keeping it right next to my "office" where I work during the day so I can be close to him while he naps.  It's also so convenient to travel with.  We haven't traveled much with Cal yet, but last weekend we went up to Park City to my grandparents condo for the day, and I brought the Dockatot for Cal's naps instead of his pack n' play (which is so much heavier and spacious). It was perfect!

The other thing I love about the Dockatot is that it's great for tummy time! The cushy, breathable bumpers can be positioned under the arms to help develop neck strength and motor skills during tummy time.  

Have I sold you yet?? Ha!

Tummy Time with Lorena Canals Rugs

This picture (below) makes me so happy! 

1. I LOVE my rug from Lorena Canals Rugs.  Why can't all rugs be machine-washable?! Cal can do his tummy time right on this soft, cozy, all natural rug without any worry about him spitting up or drooling all over it (lol).  It's the perfect touch to our entry room.

2. The handmade sign over our sofa by Birch Marie Designwrks might be my favorite thing we have hanging in our home.  The message is a perfect reminder as we walk through the door each day.  Especially with everything we've been going through with our sweet Cal.  

and 

3. Cal is doing SO great on his tummy time! He's such a strong boy with so much will to make it in this life.  He's already come so far.  Our family is enjoying every minute of having him home.  We don't know what the future holds for him as he develops, but right now he is just our perfect, normal baby and we are soaking in every second of this stage. 


Details on my entry room are linked below.  Thanks for reading!

Cal's Newborn Pictures with FotoFly

Hi! Regan again :)

If you read my Newborn Baby Essentials post, you know that one of things I think every parent needs to invest in is photos of/with your new little love.  I wasn't able to get Cal's pictures done as a brand new baby since he was in the hospital for the first 8 weeks, but I'm so glad I still decided to get them taken once he came home.

We did them with FotoFly at their SLC City location and I am so in love with how the photos turned out.  I will truly cherish them forever!




We had such a great experience with the photographer there, Max.  Cal was such a good boy and was smiling right on cue and slept through the first images, which was perfect.  Max had some great tricks to get him to wake up and open his eyes when we needed him to and to look right at the camera. 





One of the best parts about working with Fotofly is that they guaruntee you'll have your edited photos back within 24 hours! Also, their prices are pretty unbeatable.  You can do a 60 minute session for $125 and that includes all the edited images emailed to you.





Thank you FotoFly!
