To my Ashleigh


Has this year gone by quickly or what? I remember the end of last year, knowing that I was pregnant only after 2 weeks. I remember being on here venting and frustrated because my doctor wouldn't induce me as I wished because you were getting too big. I remember bringing you home.



Now you're standing all by yourself from the middle of the room without holding on. You did this for the first time today, 3 times! It's almost as though you know tomorrow is your birthday and wanted to do something extra special.


Happy Birthday sweetheart! We love you so much. You're such a joy and I'm proud to be your mama.

I didn't do it!


A few months ago this is what I woke up to!


Apparently some mystery person had entered the house while we all slept, knocked the cake over on the floor and ate a few pieces because when I asked the only suspect she claimed she was innocent.


No one was downstairs so I called out to who ever could hear me.
Me: Who did this?
Alyssa: (with a serious face) I don't know mama.
Me: (when I saw her face) Alyssa
Alyssa: It wasn't me mama


I wonder how early she got up to do this? I think she had planned it from the night before because when she asked for another piece I had told her she could have a slice tomorrow. I guess she helped herself.


Just look at that face. Innocent? I think not.

Ashleigh's 1st brand new toy!

As a parent, we are faced with the responsibility of selecting toys for our children with safety as our #1 priority. Ebeanstalk, an online toy company is here to make our job a little bit easier. Their available products range from baby gifts to developmental toys and I, along with other moms had the priviledge of testing one of their toys.

Two days ago we received the Sort n' Learn Pelican from Tiny Love. I knew Ashleigh, who is now 11 1/2 months old, would love it because of the bright colors and the noises it makes. Unfortunately her 5yr old brother and 3 yr old sister loved it just as much!

From the time I opened the package and she saw the bird, she immediately crawled over to take a closer look. I mean, who could resist that large pelican beak? It has a very child friendly appearance. I can't say that for all toys.

I opened the beak and gave her the shapes while I put the packaging away and my baby got so excited about her new toy! She was banging the shapes on the sorter and laughing her little heart out. Thankfully Mr. Pelican stood up to the abuse. The toy is very well made and durable which is a must! I've fiddled with the beak and feet to make sure of this.

I am so pleased with this toy. There is a multi-lingual switch. YES! It not only has English but French and Spanish as well! When it comes to the learning options, it can tell you the shape, the color or you can select to have silly fun noises played when the shape is matched to the correct hole. All in one of the 3 languages and there are 2 levels of volume.

I would have definitely purchased this product had I seen it. It's not your average shape sorter.

Holiday Treats Kit Giveaway WINNER

First, I must say that I truly enjoyed receiving all the recipes and reading all the comments from the entrants.   Most days I laughed pretty hard when I checked my email and saw 50+ new entries from jerricapuck. 
 
And by the way I'm a pretty mean cook but I am far from a baker.  I wish I were good with pastries but I will not fool myself into thinking I can make those light fluffy baked treats. 
 
I have a super giveaway coming up in a few weeks.  Hint: It's geared towards moms or anyone with tired and overworked feet! :-)
 
Anyway, down to business.  As if we all aren't surprised, our winner is comment #164 ,Jerricapuck.  I'll be contacting you later on today or if you read this first send me your mailing address.
 
Congratulations!  You sure know how to secure a win!!!!
