Making this apron and matching doll apron for my niece reminded me of how much fun it is.

Funny how those two rarely go together.
This is one of my favorite gifts to give, because of the personalization and multiple pattterns to choose from. It is also something they will actually use. Very important.
I can remember day after day picking up my son's pacifiers off the floor. With my first son, I always ran to the sink to wash it off before placing it back in his mouth.
With Number Two....not so much. I still wiped it down, but it depended on where we were if it got the full cleaning job.
Both of my kids had a severe attachment to their pacifiers which made this very handy.
This picture is taken when we went to the beach about a year ago. If there ever was a time for a pacifier clip, that was it. I love sand, but it is terrible to clean out of pacifiers.

A great big thank you to all that participated in the Cyber Sales. I thank you for your business!
Side Note: I just added a bunch of "Bows for a Blessing". My friend Michelle's parents gave her blessing money last Christmas--money to spend to bless another family in some way. As she explained it, they felt so rewarded through giving, they decided to do it again this year by making hair bows for sale.
I have seen them in person, and these are a great deal. 100% of the sale goes towards adopting a family for Christmas.

In the meantime, check out this cutie pie in her Jamie Rae Flower Headband. Thank you for sharing this with me- I love seeing pictures of your adorable kiddos!
Simply adorable, right?

The Ally Zabba- I have not carried this blanket long, but it has quickly rose to my best seller list. No one can order just one- they are a cherished baby gift, and are so soft and cuddly. These have never been on sale before at MiniMe BabyGear, so I am excited to be offering them for 20% off. You will love this blanket!
Lily Bugs- I was unsure if my sons would really take to these bottle and sippy covers from Lily Bugs. I thought they were great, but my little guy is sort of the "no-fuss" kind of kid. Never one to like extras, he quickly pulls tags off all the stuffed animals. I just wondered if he would love something so fun on his sippy cup. He does! I love that they make little crinkle sounds or squeak when you hold onto them, and wish I would have tried one when my kids were babies. I am sure they would have loved them when they were holding a bottle by themselves.

My partner, Katie, and I knew we wanted something classic and chic looking. We wanted it to be really easy to use and highly functional. We needed it to be durable since we have active kids, and wanted it to grow with our children and be able to fit a broad range of body types. Interesting enough, we both initially loved pocket diapers.
That is, until we purchased and used almost every cloth diaper on the market.
What we found is that neither of us really loved fishing a pee-filled insert out of a pocket diaper. Same thing with all-in-one diapers. We loved the convenience of not having to stuff pockets, but hated how long they took to dry. Sample after sample we produced; and nothing was perfect. We spent hours pouring over diapers looking at the various elements and trying to figure out what we could do to improve them.
I am really excited about what we came up with, and I know you will be too.
The insert is made of 4 layers of antibacterial hemp, topped with 2 layers of soft cotton velour to wick moisture away from skin. The velour and hemp are only attached at the ends, so it will dry quicker than one solid insert, while still giving the protection and absorbency. The entire insert snaps right into the pretty shell, so that all you need to do when it is time to wash them is unsnap and throw together in the wash.
Aren't they pretty?
We love how they turned out and excited to hear what you think.
Please note: we only are running small quantities at first, so if you do not get the diaper this first round, please get on the newsletter list. We will notify of future stockings and any specials we are running. There are only 6 left from this batch, so please hurry if you are interested.
