Most nights around 5PM you can find me at one of two parks near my house with my son. I bring a huge blanket for us to lay on, some of his favorite toys, snacks for both of us, and we play for an hour or two before it is time for Joaquín’s bath. I look forward to our evening ritual from the moment I wake up. Sometimes my husband joins us if he is not working, sometimes my Mom joins us if she is not traveling. To be honest, I prefer it to be just me and Joaquín, as a Mom and her child always need alone time together. We have the best time and I leave my iPhone in the car, so that I am 100% present with him.
I had been hearing about how fabulous the kids website Bitte is, so I simply had to try it for myself. They sent Joaquín one of the most adorable onesies I have ever seen in my life. It is called the Rock Romper and it is an ultra soft, brushed organic cotton jersey romper for babies and toddlers. It is both comfortable and stylish, thus making it, well, perfect! Listen to me when I say, “buy it now!” They have a female version as well.
I have always been a fan of real lifestyle photo shoots; where no one is posed and there are no props. People just go about their lives as is, while a photographer quietly catches it all on his or her camera. The following photos were from one of our evenings in the park. None of the photos are staged. I just followed my son around with a camera to showcase how cute he is in the Rock Romper. I will cherish these photos of my baby boy forever. Thank you Bitte for making me already precious boy, even more precious!
On a funny side note, I have never been a big junk food eater. However, all throughout my pregnancy I craved Cheetos. I think I ate them almost every day for nine months — I just could not fight the cravings. Well, guess what Joaquín’s favorite snack is? Cheetos! Unfortunately, they give the little guy gas, plus I am not thrilled to be starting him on junk food at such an early age. Thus, I found a somewhat “healthier” alternative. When I tried to introduce the new snack to him during the photo shoot he looked at me with such discontent and turned the entire box upside down in protest. All I can say is he is so my boy!
