I wrote this when Gio was smaller & never published it but figured it might be useful to those who are expecting! I added a few things that aren’t in the video, you can see them in the list below.

Throughout my pregnancy I obsessively researched everything “baby” like it was my job! Seriously, it was excessive. But the need to see all of my options before making a decision has always been in my personality. I wanted to share some of our favorites –& not so favorites– with you in a little video that I ever-so-creatively titled “Baby Favorites,” haha. & what cuter helper than our little Love himself (:

I’ve posted links to everything in the video below, plus a few other things I forgot to mention.
