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.
So if you’re looking for ways to minimize your footprint-after-baby, eco-friendly toys are a good place to start. And that’s why I was super excited to see Disney Baby team up with one of my favorite eco-conscious toy companies, Miyim, with a line of toys — including this super-cute Winnie the Pooh and Friends Bowling Set:

Have you ever wished you could add a touch of magic to your baby’s nursery? Perhaps the paint looks a tad flat, or maybe you just haven’t found that right design for you. Disney has partnered with Glidden paint and they’ve created a line of paints that are quite innovative and offer specialty finishes. Glitter and confetti can be added to your current walls as they are clear-coats that can be used on just about any wall. Another fun tidbit – the paint colors are designed to coordinate with Disney bedding products (kids and nursery).
There are 112 exclusive colors that are grouped into three separate palettes as well as a collection of specialty finishes (my personal favorite!)

There are endless decorating options for a nursery but have you considered painting your child’s dresser for a completely custom look? I love these diy transformations that take each dresser from ho-hum to show stopping.

One of the most important things I can instill in my children is a love for reading. We read together as often as we can and I try to keep books easily accessible throughout the house. While we own a respectable amount of books, majority of our reading material is checked out from our local library. Only in the library can I tell my children “pick whatever you want!” without feeling financial consequence — unless we love our books too long and rack up late fees! We adore the library for the wonderful service it provides our community. In honor of National Library Week (April 14-20, 2013), I’ve complied great art prints inspired by books and the library for your baby bookworm’s nursery.

Planning an upcoming party for your expecting friend? Make sure you check out this adorable Hot Air Balloon baby shower. When I saw it on Fabric Paper Glue, I knew I had to share it with you here. Mandy put together the sweetest celebration for her soon-to-be-mama friend. Everything was done with such detail – from the invites and decor to the gifts and food. You will love it!
