Time is going by so quickly. It’s hard to imagine that my son will be going into 1st grade this fall and that my girls are already 15 months old and walking all over the house – they are TODDLERS now! It really can seem like just yesterday that I was pregnant and dreaming about Olivia and Evie and how they would be. Would their personalities be similar or completely different? Would they look like me or my husband?
15 month later, we can see that Olivia looks exactly like my husband and Hayden and Evie looks like….well, we aren’t sure! Their personalities are completely different and I love seeing them grow into these little people with their own likes and dislikes. As time goes by so quickly, I’m thankful for this blog so I can document their life in pictures and words.
All parents dream about what your child could become and Playtex is helping parents capture those hopes and dreams through the Beginnings Imagined program, where parents have the opportunity to win a bespoke illustration and story of what their little one could become and be entered to win a grand prize of a $5,000 scholarship to help them fulfill their dreams.
I was so excited when children’s book author and illustrator, Julie Olson took a picture of Olivia and Evie along with some facts about their personalities and created this gorgeous keepsake that we will treasure forever.
I’ll always treasure this picture for capturing this special time in their life!
Now through July1st, moms and dads are invited to visit imagined.playtexbaby.com where they will be asked to answer a few short questions about their child and submit an image for their chance to win a custom illustration by children’s book author and illustrator, Julie Olson. All illustration winners will then be entered for a grand prize drawing of a $5,000 scholarship.
Playtex Baby is always right there with me and my family as my kids grow. I’m so excited for their new Beginnings Imagined program and I hope you are too!
I am so excited that Playtex Baby is giving me the opportunity to give away a custom illustration to one lucky Sippy Cup Mom reader!

I would definitely capture the toddler years. But, since they weren’t all toddlers at the same time, I think any of them would be priceless. That illustration of your girls is precious.
That is the cutest illustration! How every special it must be to you. I wish I had a little one to have one made too. I would be all over this giveaway!
I would like to capture my son at one years old.
