There’s something about Miss Minnie Mouse that is absolutely charming. For most little ladies she’s the first Disney character to capture their hearts. Given my own little one’s love for Minnie (and Mickey too) I can’t help but take note of the darling Minnie products that are designed with babies and toddlers in mind. I decided to round up some Minnie must haves for toddlers featuring a few items that every mini who loves Minnie needs. Take a look (and if you’ve got a favorite that’s not listed please be sure to share it in the comments!).
A newborn babe is one of the sweeter joys in life. So sweet in fact, that we often immerse ourselves in the magic of it all. Inhaling their smell, kissing tiny fingers and toes and holding them close, knowing that we are just as comforted by their presence as they are by ours. So many aspects of babyhood, and the years that come after are sweet, making a name synonymous with such a worthy contender.
Fruit-inspired baby names are not only fun, but just might be the perfect choice for your little one who happens to be naturally sweet — and lucky for you, always in season. Even if you aren’t quite sold on the idea of a fruit-inspired baby name, take a look anyway, as they also make great nicknames.
Mealtime can be messy and sometimes a bit challenging when your little one is exercising their ability to be a picky eater. At the same time it can also be fun. So much of my toddler’s personality can be seen at mealtime. Her ability to assert herself as she asks for “more” of one thing and responds with “I doe wann it” (I don’t want it), to another. Her sense of humor as she giggles in between bites or slyly drops the things she doesn’t want on the floor for the dog. Her sensitive side when she decides that she really did want it but the dog already ate it. Her sweet side as she offers me one of her raviolis and even her desire for independence, most evident when she refuses to eat her yogurt or “roni” (macaroni) unless we give her control of the spoon.
Although meals are seen as a chance for our family to connect and eat of course, it’s also an opportunity for me to allow my toddler a chance to partake in some of that independence she craves these days. As a result, part of our mealtime routine includes age appropriate dishes and utensils that are both functional and fun. The Mickey and Minnie Mouse sets from Disney Store offer both and are currently available for purchase. Take a look:
Recently I came to terms with the fact that my baby had made the transition to being a toddler. Although there are days when I find myself missing that newborn stage I’ve come to love toddlerhood. It’s a fun stage. There’s much more learning and exploring and growth happening. Everyday feels like an adventure and every night I find myself kissing my sweet girl and thanking her for the love and light she has brought into our lives. Here are just 30 things that I’ve found to be indicators that your baby isn’t a baby any longer:
