babywearing basics (plus, my favorite/least favorite carriers)

If you were to see me in real life - at church or running errands or at the park - this is what you would probably see: A curly-haired woman with green-hazel-blue-gray-always-changing-colors eyes - holding a preschooler's hand and carrying a toddler on her hip or in a carrier. Smiling at you (I smile a […]

Summer Fashion: Eleven Collection

For the longest time, my 3-year-old's favorite color has been green. And not just any green. "Dark Green," in particular. Other parents often express a bit of shock when my blonde-headed, blue-eyed beauty pipes up with her favorite color. Not pink! Not purple! Not even red! Green, it is. Someday she may change her mind […]

Summer Fashion: Robeez

My 16-month-old gets more confident on her feet every day. She still has the "new walker waddle" and I just can't get enough of it. I am enamored by the way she stands up, walks around, smiles a toothy grin...sometimes stopping to clap. It takes all of my willpower not to just scoop her up […]

Summer Fashion: Vincent Shoes

I've mentioned Vincent Shoes before, but I wanted to take a quick minute to tell you about the Summer Clearance Sale (up to 75% off!). Here are the shoes that caught my eye, but there are many more options to choose from! PICTURED - Left to Right: Ally ($11.25), Bobby ($11.95), Djungel ($8.45), Tobias ($19.95). […]

Summer Fashion: UV Skinz

Sunscreen has always kind of worried me. It makes me nervous to spread a cream w/ chemicals that I can't pronounce all over my skin...or - even worse - on to my child's skin. Just last week, I read another new study that asserts that Many Sunscreens May Be Accelerating Cancer (yes, accelerating!). The news […]

Summer Fashion: Lil' Dressers Drawer Labels for Kids

Every morning, my 3-year-old picks out her outfit for the day. Usually, she yells, "Don't come in here!" while she lays everything out. Then, she takes me by the hand and proudly displays her choices. She beams, her smile lighting up the room. Her little hands clench in excitement. "Does it match?" she'll ask. It […]

Summer Fashion: Lands' End (for kids)

In my opinion, the best clothes for small children are comfortable, well-made, affordable, and SIMPLE. We tend to stay away from snaps, buttons, frills, lace, collars, cartoon characters, and sassy sayings. In fact, my 3-year-old doesn't even like jeans because they require a button and a zip. When we shop, we look for soft materials, […]

SLY Awards: TwirlyGirl

When I was a little girl, I had a red & white dress that was "twirly." You know the kind I'm talking about. I could spin in circles and it would lift gracefully up in the air. I felt Pretty. Free. Happy. Cindy at TwirlyGirl knows just such a feeling and she strives to recreate […]
