I am always on the lookout for new and exciting products to try for Ems. (I think all moms probably are!) So whenever I am shopping and out and about I always wander down every baby/toddler aisle looking for new toys, accessories and feeding items. In this last month Ems has become very independent with her eating, choosing to self feed with a fork or spoon almost every meal. Anything that can make meals less messy and easier for her to self feed are great by me!
It’s officially February! Annnnnd the only way I can make it through this cold and rather drab month is to focus on the wonderfulness of Valentine’s day!
Since Canada has more recently jumped on the Black Friday bandwagon, us Canadians now have the opportunity to buy lots of items at great discounts just like our American friends before the Christmas holidays! For me, this means gift giving (one for me, one for you mentality) and of course baby girl clothes shopping! Continue reading
Although this November weather has been absolutely amazing the reality is winter is just around the corner, whether we like it or not! So, even though the snow hasn’t hit the ground here quite yet, I figured it was time to start gathering my winter favourites for not only baby girl but also for toddler girl. Because the reality also is my little girl is no longer a baby! You might notice that the blush pinks, greys and whites have carried over from my fall picks and made there way into my winter ones. They are still my faves and aren’t colours that I plan on giving up on anytime soon! Today’s winter favourite picks post is from an adorable online boutique called Threads Boutique based out of Vancouver, Canada.
This Halloween I was really struggling with what I wanted Ems to be. I had a few ideas in mind but had expected her to be walking, so I didn’t feel the ones I had in mind were appropriate for where she was developmentally. I wanted to make sure that she was able to sit comfortably if that was how she chose to spend the majority of her evening. It turns out that she started to walk confidently right before Halloween but I didnt know for sure at the time how well she would be able to walk, especially wearing a costume! Since we already owned the “little donut” shoes from Joe Fresh and had the donut rattle laying around from when she was a bit younger, a donut costume seemed like an easy costume to start to create.
Lastly, to round up Bow Week I am featuring a company that’s from right here in Winnipeg, Petite Prairie Kids. Katelyn is the face behind the company and has a little girl of her own so she definitely has experience in the bow department! What’s unique about Petite Prairie is that they not only make bows for your little girls but they also make bowties for your little boys! They also specialize in these gender neutral cute wild prairie child onesies, pom pom toques (perfect for fall!) and lace kimonos for both babes and mommas! Who doesn’t love to twin?! I know I’m guilty of it almost everyday.. ! 😉
The third shop I am featuring for Bow Week is called Arrow & Lace Designs! Another bow company that I came across while I was pregnant. When I found them I had originally purchased their LOVE headband to use for Emsley’s newborn photos but once I discovered they had other styles of bows I was instantly hooked! Continue reading
