The Joovy Moon Room is Out of this World!

Alleigh and Kaelyn love playing outside which means mama and Willow are also outside all the time.  Since Willow is now a super active 12 month old it’s pretty hard to keep her happy just sitting in a stroller and she doesn’t want to be held all the time either.  This little munchkin wants down so she can crawl around and play like the big kids.  The problem is if I just sit her down in the grass to play she will inevitably end up eating it or trying to crawl away.  Neither of which is much fun for mama.  … …..

Walker Meets High Chair with the Joovy Spoon

We live in a little bungalow.  I love our cozy little house and honestly don’t have a desire for anything bigger, but this also means that it’s important for items to serve multiple functions.  For example our coffee table has storage space inside where we keep blankets.  I needed to take this same approach with baby gear.  If you have a little one then you know how much space all their gear can take up.  I was excited to see that Joovy brilliantly combined a walker and high chair into one aesthetically pleasing product – the Spoon. The Spoon is … …..

Mamas & Papas Baby Snug is Willow’s Favorite Seat in the House! And a giveaway too!

Willow is doing really good sitting up unassisted, but many times she tries to grab something that is out of her reach and ends up toppling over.  If I’m sitting by her this isn’t a problem because I can catch her, but sometimes she wants to sit up while I am doing other things like cleaning the kitchen or working on a blog post… these things don’t just write themselves.  I remembered seeing a really awesome infant positioner on the Mamas & Papas website when I featured the MAGIC Astro Bouncer here on the blog and was very excited to … …..

Quinny Zapp Xtra: Full Feature & Compact Fold

When it comes to baby gear there are only a few things to me that are absolute necessities.  One of those things is a stroller.  I love baby wearing, but sometimes a stroller is the only thing that’s gonna work.  For instance today when I tried on about two hundred dresses for Easter Sunday… that’s only a slight exaggeration…. or when it’s just too stinkin hot outside to baby wear.  Now when it comes to strollers I have a lot of requirements that need to be met or else the stroller will end up collecting dust in the garage.  I’m … …..

Tiny Love Gymini Bouncer Review & Giveaway

If you take a look around my house practically every room has something from Tiny Love in it. Willow’s nursery has a My Nature Pals Mobile attached to the crib and a Take Along Mobile hanging over the changing table.  The 3-in-1 Rocker Napper’s permanent residence is in the kitchen where Willow hangs out when I am cooking or cleaning.  One of my absolute favorite items is the Super Mat which travels around the house and even to the bowling alley with us on Monday nights.  Willow loves all of these items and I love that they keep her entertained … …..

BabyBjörn Travel Crib Light 2 Review & Giveaway

Recently we have gone on a few over night trips.  Now anyone with a baby knows that even when you are just going away for one evening it seems that you have to pack everything in the entire house just short of the kitchen sink.  Many times hotels provide travel size cribs which would mean one less thing to pack, but I’m just not comfortable utilizing that service and prefer to bring something from home for my little one.  For the longest time I would lug our 30+ pound pack n play with us.  Yes, I know they are made … …..

Mamas & Papas MAGIC Astro Bouncer Review

When it comes to baby gear having a bouncer that will actually entertain your little one is crucial.  There are times when I need to sit Willow down {though I would prefer to hold her all day} while I do laundry, wash dishes, or even just use the bathroom! Hehe.  During those times I want something that will spark her interest so she stays happy instead of fussing the whole time because she just wants mama to pick her back up.  The vast majority of bouncers are all the same… a seat that vibrates and a toy bar… and not … …..
