cornflake dreams.: friday five.

friday five.

Happy Friday! I'm linking up with April, Caitlyn, Stephanie, and Laura today:
ONE: My Can't Live Without It items of the week are my (free) white noise app + our bathroom fan! Vi loves white noise and it helps calm her down during the dreaded witching hour and it helps her fall asleep at night. We've nicknamed the bathroom the "office" and Violet loves to go to work ;)TWO: We have a big week coming up -- H's friend is in town this weekend visiting, it's my first Mother's Day on Sunday (insert happy tears) and next week it's H's birthday AND we close on our new home! I feel really thankful and happy these days :)
THREE: Violet is 2 months old next Thursday and she has a shortlist of favorite toys: Sassy ring o'links rattle developmental toy (she's grabbing the rings like a pro!), her Jellycat Bashful Tiger (she has a few Jellycat stuffed animals but she always looks at this one -- H thinks it's because of the high color contrast), the Jellycat Farm Tails Soft Book (I'm sure my animal impressions help keep her entertained haha), and a cute little Curious George stuffed animal.
FOUR: Betsy sent over these "The Sadness of Pain Au Chocolate" photos. seriously?! too cute.
FIVE: I'm excited to announce a giveaway with the Little O Love shop! Enter to win a $30 gift card to her Etsy shop -- it's full of adorable cloth headbands for mamas and babies. All of the headbands are made out of organic cotton fabric, and new prints are added every week. I LOVE the sprinkle and flamingo prints. Please use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter. A winner will be emailed on Friday, May 15, 2015. This giveaway open to U.S. residents. Want to shop now? Use the code CORNFLAKE for 10% all online orders until 6/13/15.

Have a great weekend!

  1. H is such a doctor "it's because of the high color contrast" haha. That's so funny about Violet needing the bathroom fan to fall asleep! I was wondering if I should register for a noise machine and I guess this confirms it! Have a great weekend and enjoy your first Mother's Day!!

  6. The only time I've used a white noise app was actually in Charleston, haha! The hotel room across from us was a bachelorette party so things were a little noisy ;) Enjoy this weekend, you guys have a huge week coming up!

  8. I love the watermelon print! Contrasting prints and colors seems to be my boys favorite. We got his a play mat that has a lot of black and white stripes for the zebra and he seems to really like it. He turned 2 months this past Wednesday and isn't it amazing how they can already grab things so well? Does Violet like tummy time? Mine hates it, but he can hold his head up pretty well.

  9. My daughter's 16 months old and still loves her sassy ring of links. She wears them as bracelets sometimes. I wish Sophie would wear a headband, but she hates them :(
    Hope you have a great mother's day!

  17. Aw happy first Mother's Day! How surreal does that feel? Hope you are treated like the queen you are. I'll stop myself from any inappropriate jokes about your "office" and working bahah. Glad you found that app. I use the "sleep fan" app but may need to switch to this one! Have a wonderful weekend love :)
