I have started the process of making decorations for Aria's second birthday. I am huge into planning early, because I like to have everything done a month prior so I can focus on the day.
I found this adorable floral initial on pinterest. I knew it would suit my theme perfectly. It could also double as home decor afterwords.
Things you will need:
-letter to trace or you can free hand it, or a letter like this one from a craft store.
-hot glue gun
Sketch out the letter. If you are setting it in a frame make sure it is sized as such. Cut out letter with the sharp blade. Or if you bought a letter already cut skip this step
Start arranging and gluing down flowers. I just scattered them out and glued them on at random.
This will be pretty time consuming. It took me a few hours to complete. It really is worth it. You can use these for weddings, showers, parties, home decor, etc. They are so cute and so fun. Of course you can always make them with fresh flowers, they just won't keep as long.
I would love to see how yours turned out. Leave me a link or a picture below!

When I started to transition Aria to solids I had no clue what to feed her. I wanted her to be on a healthy diet but still maintain her growth properly. There were no resources on meal ideas for toddlers. I read books where they tell you to make sure they are on a healthy diet, or to check with your nutritionist on a healthy lifestyle. I don't have a nutritionist. I don't know many people that can afford one. I researched high and low for things you should incorporate into a toddlers diet. This is what I learned.
The most important meal of the day. Try to incorporate proteins, and fruits. Aria loves eggs. I try to change it up from eggs, to Gluten free cereal every so often. Adding cottage cheese is also another great protein source if you don't have time to cook eggs.
Lunch needs to be easy. You have been chasing your toddler around and make it easy on yourself. They don't need to be gourmet meals. I like to make things like low carb pizza, or a almond butter and jelly sandwich. Something you can toss in the oven for 10 minutes and not have a lot of prep work. You can even do left overs from last nights dinner. Keep it simple.
This will be your toughest meal. You are tired. You are cooking for everyone. If you are making a steak dinner that might be hard for a toddler to eat or process I make something I can easily prep with my meal. If we are having steak and salad I will throw some chicken or lean beef on the grill for her. Make things easy on yourself, free up some time to spend with those little ones.
I am guilty of not always giving Aria super healthy snacks like carrot sticks and celery. We do often offer her veggies. Some days she will get chips, or multi grain crackers. She loves pretzels and fruit snacks. If you are a super parent you can make your own fruit snacks with the many recipes pinterest offers. We like the organic real fruit juice, fruit snacks. I have also included a print out of easy and healthy snack ideas below.
Of course you will encounter those awful days where your little one is not interested in food. I keep Aria hydrated with the *This statement has not been evaluated by the food and drug administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
