Big Brother/Big Sister Kits

Big Brother/Sister Kit
New babies are an amazing blessing!  Everyone oohing and aahing over the beautiful new baby!  Sometimes though, big brother or big sister can feel a little left out.  New babies come with all kinds of new presents, big brother or sister need something new too!
This is perfect to help a new big brother or sister feel special.  Everyone wants to see the new baby, but this will get the big sibling some extra special feelings!
The kit is an inexpensive and highly personalized way to do just that!

Kit Contents:

A Custom Tee & Bag
Big Sibling Certificate
Coloring Book
Printables (pictured and/or linked below)
Spill Proof Bubbles
Juice & Healthy Snacks
Light up bouncy ball
The tee is just a plain white tee shirt with an iron on that says ‘Big Brother’ from Hobby Lobby.  The bag (also from Hobby Lobby) just has Big Brother written with fabric paint.  You could do something different, maybe put their name on it.  Don’t worry if you aren’t very good at it, the reason there are dots on mine is because I messed up with the paint, but  no one knows that but you.  😉
I got this ribbon image from the Homeade Gift Guru
The traceable one can be found at Twisty Noodle, they also have one without the words.
Of course, if you’d like there are also big sister printables equivalent to these on each of the sites.
Altogether, the kit cost less than $20 and was totally worth it!  It was loved by the big brother and greatly appreciated by the parents too!  It was nice hearing about how one particular Big Brother put his shirt on then went to show it off to the nurses!  😀

See N Store Multi-Media Organizer from #BabyBeeHaven

BabyBeeHaven_026 seeNstoreCollage Gone are the days where there is nothing to keep the little one’s entertained while Mom is trying to shop.  Not only can they watch movies while we shop, they can also play interactive and educational games!  I saw a 2 year old playing educational games on a tablet, how crazy is that!  No more blocks I suppose!  Though, I do think the classic toys teach important skills, keeping them busy while we shop is one awesome thing of technology.  When Monkey drives me crazy, I toss the phone at her.  She would mindlessly follow after that, as she is gone in technology!  It works with little kids too!  LOL.

One worry is that they will drop the rather expensive little entertainment devices, but that worry is no longer with the Multi Media Stroller Organizer.  It connects to most any rear-facing or traditional stroller so that the device is secure.  It holds most iPads, tablets and portable DVD players and also gives you a little space to stick your phone, a bottle, a clip for your keys and even has an expandable trash bag!

I’m really amazed with the quality of the organizer and if you don’t have a device, it will still come in really handy as the place that holds the tablet/DVD player could easily be utilized to hold other things, perhaps a wallet so you don’t have to carry your purse, some snacks, or whatever you’d like to stick inside.

One safety warning is that they suggest making sure that your stroller won’t tip with the extra weight and suggest a max of 5 lbs.  They also warn not to place hot drinks in the drink holder as there are always those possibilities that you’d spill it on the little one!

Overall, I’m impressed with the See n’ Store Stroller Organizer.  I think that Baby-Bee Haven has made an amazing, quality product which is harder and harder to find these days!  If you’ve got a little one, you’ll want one.  Be sure and check them out!

From The Company

Stroller rides can’t all be as easy as a walk in the park. Whether you’re running errands or waiting in line, sometimes mom needs to keep baby entertained on the go. Finally there’s a stroller organizer that does it all, featuring multi-media storage as well as room for all your must-haves!

  • Keep baby entertained and engaged on the go!
  • Contain, carry, and protect all mom’s must-haves
  • Secure, viewable holder for tablet* or portable DVD player
  • Protective sleeve offers multi-media storage (for traditional strollers)

Lullapop Lullabies

There are so many studies regarding music, for babies and for uplifting spirits.  While many don’t particularly enjoy listening to lullabies, this little collection is a perfect combination for both the little ones and the parents.  Lullapop Lullabies holds a collection of today’s hits made into lullabies.  An interesting combination.

NEW YORK — Innovative independent record label Razor & Tie offers a fresh take on bedtime, naptime, or anytime for the littlest music aficionados with the digital release of Lullapop Lullabies onNovember 17, 2017. This irresistible 21-song album is designed with the millennial family in mind, offering enchantingly “lullafied” instrumental versions of current chart-toppers made famous by the likes of Justin Bieber, Ed Sheeran, Adele, Sia, Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, Rihanna, Drake, and more.

The gentle, elegant orchestrations on Lullapop Lullabies hit just the right note when it comes to helping babies and toddlers drift off to dreamland. Glockenspiel, harp, and piano blend their sounds, transforming distinctive Top 40 hits like Justin Bieber’s “Despacito,” Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You,” Adele’s “Hello,” and DNCE’s “Cake by the Ocean” into serene-and-soothing lullabies for the four-and-under set.  This collection gets an A+ for putting smiles on the faces of parents who already know and love the familiar melodies.

I have many friends whose little ones get stuck on various main stream media music and they tend to get old fast for the adults.  I love the kids music, personally, as it is totally silly and fits my silliness at times.  I highly suggest you check out Bear HuntMonster Suit!  If they aren’t up your alley, perhaps this one will be!

Best Baby Shoes You’ll Find!

Baby feet are absolutely adorable therefore they must be well protected and comfy with the perfect baby shoes!  Best Baby Shoes Ever

Momo Baby seriously has some of the most adorable baby shoes I have ever seen!  Finding out I was going to have a new niece or (probably) nephew, I just had to get Baby Daski (pronounced Dah-ski) a pair of these perfect baby shoes!

All cuteness aside, if you can possibly put them there, these baby shoes are not only adorable but they are crazy functional as well.  Made with soft leather, the souls of the shoes will enable baby to learn to walk without harming their little feet.  Little ones need to be able to have natural surfaces to walk on in order to protect their feet and help them learn how to balance.  The soft suede souls will not only enable that, it will keep their little feet protected from whatever we didn’t see on the floor.  They are made with an elastic area around the ankles to keep them on the footsies but it is covered with leather to ensure that they don’t cause a rash.  (I know, personally, elastic irritates my skin.)

Momo Baby says the baby shoes provide comfort, stays on, won’t slip and are easy to clean.  Given that they are all leather and suede, they certainly seem to fit the bill!  Baby Daski won’t be here for a bit, but when he comes, I know these little shoes are gonna be perfect for the little Oosti (pronounced ooo-sti, it means baby in Cherokee).  I can’t wait to hold the little on in my arms, play with those adorable little toes, and watch Daski toddle around in these perfect little shoes from Momo Baby!

Best Baby Shoes Ever! Momo Baby

10 Brilliant Benefits of Devotionals for Children Sponsored by Say & Pray Devotions

There are so very many things I love about this book!  First of all, of course, is the message.  Just the message I want to share with my baby!  Each day holds for baby and you a little bit of words about ‘God’s World’ and ‘Say & Pray’, along with a a colorful pictures and key words that you can utilize to teach words, letter familiarity, and help with vocabulary.  Each of the Say & Pray sections have a little verse, the ‘address’ to the verse, and a quick and simple prayer perfect for reading to baby and teaching to toddlers!  I love that as they grow they will be learning these little prayers so that when they reach that time, they will be even more ready to start praying on their own.

Teaching them to have devotional time from such an early age, it also helps us to remember the importance of our own devotional time!  Not to long ago, I wrote about the importance of time management.  Having our devotional time as a set part of our schedule not only aides us in keeping our relationship with God on the forefront, it also begins a foundation of keeping priorities, managing time and learning to set schedules.

About the Book

Bestselling children’s author Diane Stortz has sold nearly 300,000 books—Bible storybooks, devotionals for children, and more. This brand-new title, Say & Pray Devotions, is the perfect beginner devotional for little ones.

Parents who already know and love the Say & Pray Bible will love Say & Pray Devotions as it helps their youngsters continue to engage their faith in a personal way. Featuring the same fun style of artwork and the educational elements as Say & Pray Bible, this devotional for little ones will teach the basics of identification and comprehension while sharing biblical principles for life. Each devotion offers a topical message to help little ones learn and follow biblical principles.

10 Brilliant Benefits of Devotionals for Children

  1. Teaches children to have a personal relationship with God.
  2. Encourages and sets the foundation for thinking about situations, rather than just reacting.
  3. The love and acceptance taught through the scriptures is more easily understood and utilized in their day to day lives.
  4. Begins teaching them to focus and study.
  5. Using what they learn from the devotions throughout the week, day and month teaches them to apply the things they learn (not just religious, but all lessons) to other aspects of their day.
  6. Studies show that those with a strong relationship to a higher being tend to be happier and more successful in their personal lives.
  7. A good attitude can be learned through scripture, the Bible teaches love, acceptance, compassion, and so many other wonderful lessons about emotions!
  8. Praying and meditating on the Word teaches self-awareness and awareness of God.
  9. Children learn from a young age to recognize God’s presence in their lives so that as they grow they will see His touches on their lives.
  10. The Bible encourages and teaches healthy behaviors, taking care of ourselves and others are two excellent examples!

Say & Pray Devotions will be featured as part of the Harvest Blessings Giveaway Hop!  So be sure and come back and enter to win an extra copy, after you’ve ordered one or two for Christmas, of course!

#BabyBaby! A book for Bébé! Sponsored by #FlyBy

#BabyBaby! #Win A book for Bébé! US/CAN Ends 9/29 Sponsored by @CraftyZoo & #FlyBy What an adorable little read this is to share with baby!  Studies have shown that the more we read to and talk to our little ones, the better their verbal understanding and larger their vocabulary will be.  As pretty much every Christian knows, scripture says “If you lead a child on the path which he should go, when he is old he will not stray from it” Proverbs 22:6.  That being said, my favorite line in the whole book is at the end when a mirror reflects baby’s precious face and you read, ‘Who does God love? God loves _____’.  The space is there so that you can write baby’s name in, of course, but I think I’ll leave it blank so that one day we can pass it on.  It also shares a scripture at the very end of the book, one that we would all be good to remember!  I love that it’s there at the end of the book so that we can add that into our teaching the little ones and even get a new scripture memorized for ourselves!

Here’s what the publisher has to say:

A sweet, colorful board book that appeals to a baby’s interest in looking at other babies

Babies enjoy books, looking at other babies, and their own flowering abilities. This short rhyming poem combines all three in a sweet and happy way, while introducing babies to God’s love for them. The simple words are paired with colorful images of babies engaging in familiar activities, allowing the book to be used as an introductory concept book as well. And it ends with a reminder that Baby is always loved by God.

16 Reasons to Shop at Family Christian

16 Reasons To Shop at Family ChristianI have been going to fc stores for years.  One of the biggest things I love about them is that they are a not-for-profit business.  That means that everything over the cost of operation goes to charities.  There are various charities they support, listed below.  They are also a Christian store.  Whether you agree with Christianity or not, the good the company does for not only our society, but others around the world, makes a huge difference in many lives.

There are many great products both in the store and online.  This is gonna sound crazy, but my absolute favorite product that I’ve ever bought at Family Christian is a water bottle that pops open with the push of a button and locks so that it won’t pop open when you don’t want it to!  I went back for a long time trying to find them again and they didn’t have them in stock, but I’ve recently found them on their website so I ordered some extras.  Within two minutes I had the shipment guarantee and the notification that they had received my order.  The water bottles I ordered weren’t in their warehouse, so there was a little notification on the site (before I ordered) letting me know that it may take longer to receive.  I love that they had that easily seen!  They also sent me a guarantee within minutes of my order that covered a lot more than I ordered!


Right now there is an awesome Summer Sale of Buy 1, Get 1 50% off on ALL books, movies, and music for the entire family both online and in store!  The sale will be going on until August 25, 2016.  Also, don’t forget to check out their clearance section.  It’s always got something and is typically fabulous!

Warmze Review: Awesome Bottle Warmer!

bottlewarmerWarmze’s are perfect for on the go Mommys!  In just 30 minutes, a frozen bottle of breast milk can be ready to go or a mixed bottle can be perfectly heated.  Given that the majority of our family lives at least 3 hours away, I can see this coming in handy for trips!  Or even just to keep in case a doctor’s appointment runs longer than planned!  The wrap will even stay warm for up to 10 hours, which is really great for long road trips.  The only downside is that the heat wraps aren’t reusable, but a set of 4 (for small bottles) will only run about $13, so that’s not too bad given that it’s not something that is needed regularly.  Plus, the warmer packs are eco friendly, so you don’t have to worry about that.  😀

From The Company

One self-heating warmer will conveniently heat several different bottles throughout a day-no boiling water, no metal disk to click, no running to car for car charger, no electricity, no batteries or microwave. In just 30 minutes you will have a perfect tepid bottle (90-104 degrees) the temperature recommended by Pediatricians. It works for breastfeeding moms that pump (thaws frozen milk) as well as those that have to use formula.
The non-toxic, biodegradable warming wraps are air-activated and last for up to 10 hours or 3-5 bottles per one warmer wrap. The bottlesoc is re-usable and helps keep baby dry by preventing leaks and allowing the large cotton ruffle to wipe dribbles.

Check out the video, it tells you just about everything you need to know about it! I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
