Recently while looking for a gift on Etsy, I stumbled upon the shop Dolls and Daydreams and was instantly smitten. Shop owner Sarah sells her adorable plush creations in the form of downloadable PDF sewing patterns. Unfortunately for me, I can’t even sew a button, but for those of you who possess the crafty gene, this shop will be right up your alley and the best part is you will be able to customize your dolls exactly as you please! Sarah has SO many great doll patterns in her shop, but these are a few of my favorites.
I have long held the belief that the “Small World” ride at Disney is the best ride in the entire park. I loved it even more after experiencing it during my daughter’s first trip to Disneyland and I’ve actually been thinking it would make a perfect nursery theme when we have our next child (*one day). I think this would be the perfect theme for a little boy or a little girl’s room, which is great for those of you who are into surprises when it comes to Baby’s gender. Here are a few items I think would be perfect for a Small World inspired nursery!
While looking for baby names, I remember falling in love with quite a few nicknames only to realize that I couldn’t stand their more formal version and felt like I needed to nix the name because of it. Perhaps some of you have felt the same? Maybe you fell in love with the name “Minnie” but weren’t so keen on it’s full-length version…the dated sounding “Minerva”. Well, I’d like to think that sometimes nicknames make the best baby names. Here are 30 nicknames that have great baby name potential.
I sort of have a thing for Little Golden Books. Perhaps it is the nostalgia they bring back from reading them when I was a kid, but whatever the case, when I see a good one, I can’t help but snap them up. Such was the case with this little gem I found while I was out running errands today. The cute illustrations caught my eye and with Monsters University coming out next month, I couldn’t resist getting a sneak peek.
When it comes to keeping a child entertained, the effort required definitely starts to increase as they get a little older. Now that I have a toddler, I’ve had to up my game in the entertainment department. And since, I’m sure I’m not the only parent who’s always on the lookout for fun (and simple!) ways to keep my toddler entertained, I thought I’d share a few fun and easy activities that my toddler has been loving lately.
