Our exersaucer was probably the most valuable piece of baby gear we had between months 4 and 6 because I could sit him there — right in that little seat — and watch him swat and rattle and completely entertain himself.
And these sturdy Safety 1st walkers at Walmart have a world of (Disney) entertainment right on the tray:
Happy Earth Day, you guys. A day to remember our roots, quite literally, and prioritize our planet’s health — after all, it’s the only habitat we have.
And because of that, many new parents feel a more urgent need to make our world, our children’s world, a healthier and cleaner place. Yet I was SHOCKED at how much waste an itty-bitty baby can produce. From endless diapers to short-lived plastic baby gear, parenting can cause even the most eco-conscious parent to increase their landfill contribution.

Disney/Pixar is having (yet another) big moment right now — first with the upcoming Monsters University (a prequel to Monsters Inc, out this year) and the VERY EXCITING announcement of a Finding Nemo sequel, Finding Dory. (Eeeeek!)

Here’s a little recap of Benjamin’s new 3-month self:
