I know this isn't a huge milestone but now that she is older, milestones are getting more and more spaced out.  Isn't she just the cutest thing alive with her side pony tail?  I just can't believe how old and beautiful she is in this picture! … [Read more...]

Babymel Amanda Diaper Bag Review

When I was on my search (for the third time) for a diaper bag, I felt like I knew a lot more (or at least hoped so) of what I wanted in a diaper bag.  When I was pregnant, the only two diaper bags I looked at was the LeSportsac Ryan Baby Bag and the Vera Bradley Baby Bag.  I wasn't thinking function, I was only looking at what was cute and the price.  In the end, I chose the Vera Bradley bag and was completely smitten... until our baby got … [Read more...]

Cloth Diapering | My Diaper System

Ohh Sophie, how I love you.  One of my good friends, Caley, is an awesome nanny and told me about this teething toy and said that it was a "must have" item.  She even went as far to say that if a baby that she was caring for didn't have this teething toy, that she would go out and buy them one!  I immediately put the Vulli Sophie Giraffe on my registry and hoped and prayed that someone would get it for us.  Caley was nice enough to send us … [Read more...]
