Choosing the Perfect Gift for a Little One

Recently we celebrated my little one’s 5th birthday. Fifth! I can’t believe he’s five already, it seemed like we had his first birthday only yesterday. If you caught any of it on my instastories, the theme was loosely based on the book The Little Gardener by Emily Hughes.

With Mother’s Day around the corner I thought it would be cute to do another Mommy and Me outfit post like we did on Goat Island during a trip to Oahu. Plus, I just love having photos with him while he’s still shorter than me (ha!).
