Orabelle Baby Giveaway!

About Orabelle Baby:
Orabelle Baby hails from the great Hamilton, Massachusetts. I started Orabelle Baby after having my first child. Frustrated at not being able to find clothes I liked for him, I decided to create my own line. Now that I have a daughter to dress too, I am even more inspired to make clothes that moms (and dads) look forward to putting on their kids.
At Orabelle Baby, we understand how hard it can be to find fun, fashionable baby and toddler clothes. But look no further. Whether you’re looking for a summer dress that does double duty, a shower gift with personality or an outfit for your little boy that isn’t emblazoned with monster trucks, you’ll find it here.
Every one of our pieces is made by hand and with the highest quality designer fabrics. Many items can be customized, just ask.

I came across Orabelle baby while surfing on etsy a few weeks back.  I was trying to find a present for my baby, Rivers who turns one TODAY! Happy Birthday Sweet baby boy! Anyway, back to Orabelle…I started looking through their shop and fell in LOVE! They have so many fabulous items! This is what we got for out sweet baby J and he LOVES it!

Happy Birthday Sweet Rivers!

Rivers, it is UNBELIEVABLE to me that it has been a year! How could time have passed that quickly?

 I can remember the first time you were placed on my chest. You were so content. You didn't cry. You just looked at me with your Gorgeous blue eyes. I fell even deeper in love with you. Then you proceeded to poop all over me :) That day is so vivid in my mind. It is so hard for me to wrap around my brain that it has, in fact, been 12 months...365 days...

From the day you were born You have been COMPLETELY opposite of your brother! You have been the opposite of everything I expected. In an amazingly GREAT, unexpected way! God knew exactly what I needed when he gave me you!

Few things make me happier than seeing your sweet smile...especially when it is so BIG that you have to scrunch your face :), when you rub your hands together, because you can't contain your excitement, when you throw yourself on the ground and just laugh for no reason at all... You help us to have so much fun in the seriousness of out lives at the moment! I LOVE that you adore your brother, and I even LOVE your STUBBORNNESS!

I LOVE that your knees are so chunky that there is n way to actually find your knees :), I Adore your kisses, and your snuggles make my day! I love that you can not contain yourself when Papa comes home! I LOVE TO HEAR YOU SQUEAL WITH EXCITEMENT WHEN HE WALKS IN THE DOOR!

PLUS You had the best hair EVER and The chunky legs are just a bonus!

How does one express the LOVE that you have for your child with words? I find it is impossible. All I can say, is that I overwhelmingly in LOVE with the creation God has given me to take care of... Thank you JESUS for this amazing blessing... Rivers Elias Vigil Thank you for loving my so sweetly :)

Your Mama

Confidence Booster...

I decided that I LOVE all my readers a lot....AND I feel like ya'll don't see the crazy, weird, hectic, gross parts of our lives...

I guarantee that this with  be a confidence booster for you... BEWARE some of this is GROSS! :)

1. Rivers hasn't eaten FOOD since lunch yesterday all because he refuses to say PLEASE.

Please – adverb

(used as a polite addition to requests, commands, etc.) if you would be so obliging; kindly: Please come here. Will you please turn the radio off?     

2. Someone around here is sick at all times...So sometimes I will wipe my sons nose with my HAND and wipe it on my jeans......(I so can NOT believe I am saying this to ya'll )

3. The other day...I was cleaning all the toys out from under the couch and found and m&m....and I ATE it!

4. I kiss my bird...AND my dog quite often...

5. I take pictures of my kids when they are crying...Cuz I think it is CUTE :P

6. I have such an obsession with milky ways...the evidence is on my butt :0)
(I won't add a pic...for your sake :))

7. There was a time...I found London upstairs covered in was in his mouth, hair, all over the crib, eyes, under his fingernails, stained his quilt...
I WISH I had a pic of this glorious took me 3 1/2 hours to clean up...

8. I write down what I need at the grocery store because I can never remember what I need when I get there...Most of the time I forget the list too...

9. London says, "Mama, I go hide and pick my nose...okay?" Ill spare you the icky details and give you a pic of Brad Pitt instead :)

10. London goes up to Jon and says, " I do this on purpose!" then farts in Jon's face and runs away :)

Yes, this cute lil thing said and DID that :) you feel closer to me???  LOL POOR you....

We still love each other through the grossness :)
