Baloboa Baby Sling

Since I've had Jensen I have been able to use my new Balboa Baby Sling!  I have loved it for when he is so little.  It is so perfect for a newborn baby and I am sure I'll keep using it as he gets older as you can adjust it and use it as your baby grows.  I love the pretty patterns they have available now too:

Cavity-free Kids

I am so fortunate that my kids have not had any cavities yet (knock-on-wood) But, Allie is only 6 and Macsen is just 2 1/2 so we still have lots of time for that to change...however, here are a few things I do to help keep their teeth cavity-free:

1. Try to limit the sugary candy that stays on teeth a long time (think sticky and gummy candy like Swedish fish, Jolly ranchers, etc...)  I really am not a sugar Nazi and we pretty much have candy and sweets at all times in our house, but I try to make sure they don't eat it ALL day and especially not right before bed.  And, if they eat these candies that stay stuck to teeth I try to get them to brush their teeth before too long.

Bright Eye's Baby

I'm not sure how many of you remember Bright Eyes Kids from when we did a giveaway, but I am really excited as they are working with Parker Jacobs (the artist behind Yo Gabba Gabba) to do an artist series of blankets!  The idea behind the blankets is to use the high contrast of black and white to encourage a baby’s visual stimulation and development.  They have some really cute patterns available on their site, and 4 different types of blanket material too:

Burt's Bees Baby Giveaway!

It's Spring and that means a new Spring line for Burt's Bees Baby!  Burt's Bees Baby sent me a few things to try on Macsen and Jensen and they are pretty darling!  Jensen wore just this onesie all day on a really nice day we had last week.  It is so soft (like all of their clothing is) and super cute- I decided I love him in gray!

Fave Things Friday

I figured I haven't done a Favorite Things Friday in FOREVER and wanted to share some of my favorite new things!

1. Favorite New App:

Keepy- an excellent app for storing your kids' artwork, crafts, milestones, cute things they say (recorded) etc.  I LOVE this because Allie makes new crafts and artwork everyday and I don't have the room for it, Macsen is always saying such cute and funny things and now I can record it, and Jensen's milestones are SO hard for me to keep track of!  All 3 problems solved!  Plus, it has a super great layout and I can easily share all of these things with their grandparents and aunts and uncles.

Cell Phone Week: Another Case

Its Friday and the last day of cell phone week!  Last but not least, Another Case has tons of great geometric patterns, quotes, and more that are "artist designed, hand printed & eco friendly."
Here are just a couple that I liked, but there were SO many more!

Cell Phone Week: After Images

Guys, only 2 more days left of Cell Phone week.  Today I am excited to share this really cute, fun, and trendy shop called After Images.  You can tell they did their homework when you read their shop information:

Creative, truly unique and custom iPhone 4/4s, iPhone 5/5s/5c, HTC, Galaxy S3 and S4 accessories, all created by Steven and Cathy, two Cleveland based designers (with the occasional help from our cats). Our custom cases are unmatched and we work with you to design typography, retouch photos and rework imagery. Don’t be fooled by cheap imitators ;-)
All cases are done with high quality sublimation techniques that won’t ever fade! The metal we print on is manufactured in the U.S and we use Eco Smart model Hix machinery, manufactured in the U.S.
These were just a couple of my faves. I loved SO many it was hard to choose:

Cell Phone Week: Semi Sweet Studios

The Esty shop I want to introduce to you today is quite a beauty.  Semi Sweet Studios is the fine art photography shop of Kim, and here is what she has to say about it:

I'm drawn to the beauty of the rustic, the minimal, the childlike. I've been an artist for over 20 years, specializing in fine art photography and oil paintings.
My work is based on the things that I love - farms, nature, country life, barns, fields, beach, landscapes, still life, seascapes, flowers - each with their own unique and natural beauty.
What a great idea she had to put her beautiful work onto cell phone cases!  Here are a couple of my faves:
