First sorry for the delay in posts. It has been a hectic couple of weeks. I found these books a couple of weeks ago and I’m really excited to post them. They are really really beautiful. They are once-a-year books from LAIKONIK. Each book has 18 pages for each year in the first 18 years of your child’s life. My favorite part is the beautiful screen printing on the front of the book. I think these books would make the perfect unique baby shower gift. As always though….I want to buy one for myself.

Bria ApronFirst, happy Wednesday! You made it half way through the week…I hope you feel accomplished because I certainly do.

So, back in December I was searching for the perfect birthday present for L’s best friend and I stumbled across these little gems. I found them at RetroActive Kids and completely fell in love with them! They are art smocks and aprons for kids in really bold and cute patterns from Luke & Loolu. This company was co-founded by a Seattle mom…which you know I love.

Luke & Loolu also have a number of other great products check out their site to see more.

Check out the aprons & smocks:

Giraffe Children's Step Stool by Custom Climbers (Pink, Brown, Striped)L, my daughter, is most definitely a 2-year-old now. She wants to be involved and help with everything. She has this really ugly looking step stool my husband once bought from the hardware store for changing light bulbs. She enjoys being able to pull the stool up and “help” mommy cook but I have been looking for something that looked nicer. I found these stools from the Etsy store CustomClimbers and really loved them. They are very stylish but still look like they are meant for kids. An added plus is that they are made by a mom! I love supporting mom-owned businesses!

Lastly,  they are  wood, which makes them durable…now I just need to convince the husband that we need one!

They have cute styles for boys and girls:

  I saw these through one of my all time favorite blogs, Oh So Beautiful Paper!. These clocks are way to cute. They are from 9SpotMonk and they are brand new. They are perfect for kids who would like to help decorate their room. They are also letterpress. I love letterpress, it just looks so sophisticated and quaint at the same time.

A couple of months ago I stumbled across Jurnee Products. My dear friend just had her second child and I was looking for something to buy her older child so she wouldn’t feel left out. Jurnee has big sibling gifts that are so cute! Also this company is own by two moms, which I think makes their products even more worth buying. This is another northwest company but no matter where you live there products are pretty adorable.

They have a variety of big sibling gifts from T-Shirts to backpacks to big sibling kits. The also have the cutest blankets for babies:

To say October was a hectic month would be an understatement…from business trips to friends having babies to Halloween it has been quite packed. So, now I am ready to say farewell to October and all the excitement it held and get back to blogging. I have a number of exciting products lined up! Stay tuned….and hello November!

This product is one of my favorites. This blanket is not only waterproof it is completely cute as well! I think this is a must have for all  moms and dads even if you don’t live in rainy Seattle. This company is based in Redmond and you can buy them online on their site: http://www.ruggedidea.com.

Look how cute these are:

 

There is also a tie on the blanket that will allow you to tie it to the stroller.

I absolutely love Sock Pals! I bought some for L when she was a baby and she loves them. Actually, tonight before going to bed L said, “mommy, um bunny!” so cute. I bought her the Mini Sock Pal Set because she wasn’t ready for buttons yet. I will definitely buy the big kid ones for her when she is a little older though. And for the Seattle moms, this is a Seattle company, even better!

Look how cute these are!
