Celebrating Baby’s Firsts In Louisiana


From her first steps to her first words, I wanted to record every second of my child’s development, so one day I could go back when she was older and remind myself of those special moments.

But down here in Louisiana, there are a lot of firsts that can’t be found in just any normal baby book. For instance, taking a child to her first Mardi Gras parade must be documented. Seeing her eyes light up at the bright and colorful floats and hearing the excitement in her voice as she says, “Look, Mom! Look at that one!” is certainly worth a spot in her baby book, I would think. And don’t forget the food!

Watching her eat king cake for the first time and experience her first crawfish boil are other exciting only-in-Louisiana events that I will surely want to remember. Oh, and I can’t forget the first LSU game. Teaching her how to say “Geaux Tigers” will be a must.

Knowing that there are so many exciting Louisiana firsts to experience, I was lucky to find a baby book that allowed me to record all of those exciting milestones. Lil Squirts’ Louisiana Baby Book includes pages for a child’s first LSU game, her first festival, first Fleur de Lis Pizza, first day at the Baton Rouge Zoo, and her first crawfish boil. And they even allow you to add pages to make the book that much more unique!

Lil Squirts is a hometown-inspired company that has baby books that are unique to Louisiana, including New Orleans and Acadiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia. The creators are moms that saw a need for mothers to record all the necessary Louisiana firsts.

Time. Think about a typical weekday evening at your house. Are you on the phone? Are the kids watching tv? Maybe you’re running errands and dropping people off at different events. For us, a typical evening is frantic, with Pman doing homework and Li

The Worst Days Are Still the Best Days

Before kids, Christmas felt a lot less stressful. My first year as a mom, I found myself buying Christmas presents in the Spring. I stored them away in a closet and would pick up toys and gifts all year long. I think that’s the most significant chang
