Hip Bibs {Baby Gift Idea}

18 Jul


July is turning out to be a huge month for baby gift giving in our family – from new births, to baptisms – we are blessed with lots of beautiful babies to buy for.  I just received my fairly large order from my favorite source for adorable and durable bibs: Baby Sophia Gifts.  There is an array of fun fabric choices for both boys and girls and the bibs can be personalized with names or monograms.


I have found that the way these bibs are cut is very comfortable for my kids (who often wore the bibs all day during their teething months) and the fabric cleans up nicely if you rinse out the baby food with a little dish soap before it dries.  My babies are drool machines, but they rarely soak through these thick bibs.

Favorite Things: iPlay Summer Water Sneakers

15 Jul

We recently moved from San Francisco to New York and wow, is it H-O-T. My little one overheats very easily (thanks to his daddy) so we’ve spent a lot of time searching for parks with sprinklers. Thankfully, there are quite a few. Seeing as how the summer in SF is usually chilly and foggy, we didn’t have the proper summertime-in-the-city attire, especially shoes. I found these iPlay Summer Water Sneakers and they are fantastic. It took a little while for Charlie to get used to walking in them and the first time, he actually slipped a little. But since then, it’s been smooth sailing. And for $14, they can’t be beat. I also found them in a color to match his Hanna Anderson swimsuit! One point for mama.

Kate Quinn Organics Semi-Annual Sale {deals}

6 Apr

Need some new duds for the little one?  Kate Quinn Organics, one of my very fave organic kids clothing brands, is having their semi-annual $10 sale.  I’m not sure why they call it a $10 sale since the prices range from $10-20, but the sale prices are still great.  April 9-April 16, 2013.

Favorite Things: Columbia Sportswear Youth Pigtail Hat

4 Feb

Hats usually last on my little one for all of seven seconds before he rips it off and tosses it out of his stroller. That was until we received the super cute Columbia Sportswear Youth Pigtail Hat from a friend for Christmas. It fits snugly and has velcro on the “pigtails” so it stays put. I have a feeling he will outgrow it pretty soon so it usually makes an appearance in his wardrobe at least once a day.

Have you seen the new line of Zutano kids clothing available at Target? It’s super cute and a great value – all of the pieces are $4-12. The line is mostly for infants (newborn – 18 months), with some toddler sizes for socks (up to 4T). My daughter has some of the original Zutano pieces and many pairs of their socks. Very excited to see this line for Target. Check out the entire line here.
