OUR GLO WORM

She is our little Glow worm, but we got her her very own vintage Glo Worm too.

Naturally, we couldn't resist getting her this. I had a glo worm as a child and Ben and I loved the look of the vintage ones much better than the new ones, so I stalked a few auctions on ebay to get one (surprisingly they go for a whole lot and I was in a bidding war to get them). Actually, I not only got one, but two (I am good at ebay), to make sure at least one worked. We wanted her to be able to hug it later and have fun seeing it light up! After all, that is what helps make this little worm so darn adorable.

I can't wait until she can play with it. Actually, I can. I love her being so little and since she is our last, we are soaking up every minute of this newborn-ness before it's gone. Plus, she is already a month old! Can you believe it?!! And I did indeed take her chair picture yesterday to mark the occasion (and I am almost done writing her birth story, so hopefully that will be up next week).

If you are interested, since I bought two and both work, I am selling the other one in my shop here. It works and is washed and ready to be loved!

Be back later with my week's huzzahs and tomorrow, but I am going to keep the raffle giveaway going one more day, so you still have a chance to donate and I will announce the winner of the dollhouse pillow tomorrow. Thank you so much to all who have tweeted, blogged, facebooked and donated thus far. It is so very much appreciated by me and the Martinez family.

    Have you ever thought of doing a tutorial for the swaddling you do on Glow? is this something Filipino people do? (i hope not to offend with this question. if i am, please forgive me.)

  9. These pictures are darling! So cute. Congratulations on your sweet baby girl!

    I've been catching up on your blog and am loving your baby blankets (green and gray) -- and I'm wondering where I can find some? I'm due for my fourth child next year and I love the colors!

  19. I love the vintage Glo Worm. Checked out the new ones and darn it! Why do they have to make a girl and boy version? They totally cheapened the whole thing. Love that you found a vintage one!

  22. Aww,I had one when I was in fourth grade that I loved sleeping with and lighting up when I couldn't sleep....it was one of my fave toys that comforted me when we had to live with my grandparents for a while and slept in the bed my mom slept in as a little girl.Glow worms are awesome and I agree that those are better than any newer ones. :)
