Aden + Anais Organic Dream Blanket Review

Aden + Anais Organic Dream Blanket Review

I have heard wonderful things about Aden + Anais products for years, particularly their muslin swaddle receiving blankets which are incredibly popular and highly recommended by so many moms. Yet, up until recently, I had never actually tried any of their products or seen them in person. Honestly, I didn't know if I could justify the price tag unless I really, really knew they were worth it. Well, trust me, now I know. They are! I was absolutely thrilled when Aden + Anais sent me one of their Organic Dream Blankets to review. In fact, I … [Read more...]

Teaching My Toddler to Read

Teaching My Child To Read

This past week my two-year-old successfully sounded out and read several words (like "sit," "ear," "dog,"and "this") all by himself. I'm so excited at his progress and I thought I would share the details of our "reading program" for those of you who are teaching your children to read (or will be someday). I've always believed that learning starts at birth and it's never too early to begin educating children. By the time Big M turned two, he knew his alphabet and could say his "ABC's" as well as recognize all the capital letters in the … [Read more...]

“C is for Cookie” – Our New Sesame Street Toddler Room

Sesame Street Toddler Kids Room Decor

Recently two-year-old Big M graduated from his crib (well, crib-converted-toddler-bed) and his "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" room. Since he loves Cookie Monster, Big Bird, and Elmo, we decided to go with a Sesame Street theme for his new room. He was so excited and absolutely adores his new little place in the world. His new bed is a Signature Sleep Contour 8-Inch Mattress from Amazon, topped with a Sleep Innovations 2-Inch Sure Temp Memory Foam Mattress Topper. I wanted to go with something fairly inexpensive, yet comfortable, and this … [Read more...]

The Absolute Best Newborn Cloth Diapers: A Follow-Up Review & Comparison!

Lil Joey Newborn AIO Cloth Diaper Review

Last fall I wrote a review about several different top newborn cloth diapers, comparing them as closely as I could without having an actual newborn to try them on at the time. I drew on my experience cloth diapering our first child (who I'll call Big M now that Little M, our second baby, is here), although we did not cloth diaper Big M full time until he was 3 months old so my true experience with newborn cloth diapers was limited. In December our adorable Little M arrived, and now that we are beyond the newborn stage and starting to get … [Read more...]
