Gipsy Wild... - West + Rose

Gipsy Wild...


*I received these products for free in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my very own.*


At 8 months old, Vivian's personality has really begun to shine bright.  Over the last month, we have noticed some strong personality traits of our daughter's.  In my opinion, this is where it starts to get really fun.  Tiny babies are adorable, but I really love it when I get to watch my children begin to form opinions and decide what they like and don't like.  Hard to believe I gave birth to her over 8 months ago.  It still feels like I was pregnant with her yesterday.  Her birth definitely gave us a taste of what she would be like.  A wild child who knows what she wants...


She is not a fan of green things...

From avocados to green beans, she is not a fan of the greens.  She loves orange things...like pumpkin, sweet potatoes and carrots.  Her favorites right now are probably pumpkin and peaches.  She is a little impatient during feedings, meaning we can never get another spoonful in her mouth quick enough, and she also has my sensitivity to textures which makes for some interesting and messy feedings when trying a new food.





She likes to be free...

The more naked the better in her book...which is something we will have to work on as she gets older, but for now it is endearing...When she can't be naked, She prefers coveralls and dresses to footie pajamas and pants.  She likes to feel free to move, twist and crawl.





She is fast approaching her first teeth...

We have plenty of drool and teething toys to prove it.  This gal is always trying to put something in her mouth to chew on...which is terrifying, so I have made a point to have plenty of teething toys around the house for her to grab.  Our favorite teether is the 100% organic wood rattle teether from Finn & Emma.  The teething rattle is made from Indian hardwoods, filled with Indian cooking beans and finished with vegetable seed wax.  I don't have to worry about anything toxic going into my baby's mouth so long as she is gnawing on this rattle.  What I also love about this rattle is that it is chunky, which makes it easy for her sweet baby fingers to hold onto it.




She is a ham...

This girl definitely has our sense of humor.  She absolutely loves to smile and laugh.  She brightens the darkest of days.  Her personality is truly magnetic and she is chock full of charisma.  She has the gift of spreading happiness and I intend to support and nourish this gift, as the world needs so much of it.



She wants her mama...

There is not much in her world that I can't make right, and I am eating up every second while it lasts...I know all too well that daughters becomes daddy's girls, just as they should. She wants to be held all of the time, which is a bad habit...but considering I am about 85% sure she is our last baby, I am going to enjoy it while it lasts...Even if my back is on fire and my arms are jelly...



She is inquisitive and adventurous...

Vivian wants to know about everything...so she is into errything! Once she sets her eyes on something, so must get to it...whether it be by kinda-crawling to scooting or just rolling...she is going to find a way to get to what interests her. She loves to be outside looking at the sky or feeling the grass between her fingers and she really loves to feel the wind in her face.  She is definitely our little earth-loving, gipsy-hippy girl.


Clothing has become more and more important now that she is so active.  She is pulling up on things, rolling across the room, scooting on her behind and army crawling.  She definitely needs durable clothing that gives her the soft and easy comfort she craves so she does not feel constricted.  Finn & Emma 100% organic cotton coveralls are perfect for my little explorer.  Vivian is wearing the Fairytale Coverall in the photographs and it is easy to see how comfortable she is in them. I demand  quality cotton clothing in tasteful patterns and styles for my children.  I limit the amount of tulle, glitter and characters on her clothing, just because that is my person preference.  Finn & Emma has unique and tasteful patterns in gorgeous colors all while maintaining the integrity of their products by using 100% organic cotton, lead/nickel free snaps and non-toxic dyes.

This girl is on the move and I have a feeling she will not be slowing down any time soon.  Goodness, gracious babies sure don't keep.
