All opinions are mine alone. #MagicBabyMoments #CollectiveBiasDisneyHero2Last year on Christmas Day, my brother and his wife told me some very exciting news… they were expecting a baby boy! Finding out I was going to be a first-time aunt was thrilling. Plus I was excited for my son to finally have a cousin in the family. Now if you are a regular reader of this blog, you know my family and I LOVE Disney. So I was quite determined to give my new nephew a bit of that Disney magic in his nursery! Luckily I discovered the amazing Disney Baby line, available at Walmart.

The Disney Baby “Let’s Go Mickey” crib bedding set immediately caught my eye. It features the colors of aqua, red, white, and grey with chevron accents. I knew it would match well with the grey and white decor of my nephew’s nursery. When I started to pull out the contents of the bedding, the first thing that caught my eye, was the cool outlines of Mickey’s head on the crib sheet.DisneyCloseUp [Read more…]

Luvs Super Absorbent Leakguards Diapers ~ # TheClueIsInTheBlue #ReviewAh the joys of potty-training! Yes, we are in that stage where I’m teaching my 2 year old to use the potty. Unfortunately it isn’t moving as fast as I wished. So yes, I’m still buying him diapers, especially for when we head off for long outings. It’s just more convenient to use a diapers when out. Also diapers are more ideal for overnight when I know he is fast asleep and potty training isn’t even a blip on his radar!

I can’t tell you how excited I was to try the new Luvs Super Absorbent Leakguards with my son. These diapers are actually 15% more absorbent than regular Luvs diapers out there in the market. The ultra thin Leakguards feature an adorable monkey, which is great because luckily my son loves monkeys!

Perfect Baby Gift: Personalized Heirloom #Baseball Bat from Texas Timber Bat Company! ~ #Review

Now I’ve always been a huge sports fan during my lifetime. When I gave birth back in April 2011, let’s just say a large time of my maternity leave was spent watching baseball games (on television of course!) with my newborn baby boy in my arms. When I first heard about the Baby Bat collection from Texas Timber Bay Company, I have to say that these personalized heirloom bats would have been the PERFECT baby gift to give a sports fan like me.

So what makes Baby Bats such a unique and special gift? Each bat is actually custom made to the length of your baby when he or she was born! How awesome is that? The bat is then inscribed with your baby’s name and other birth statistics such as date, time, weight, and height. Just keep in mind that the character limit for the baby’s name is 25. Of course if your child has long names, you can use initials instead. Bats can be customized with a blue or pink ribbon as well.

Happy 2nd Birthday C-Man!

Two years ago on April 2nd at 7:10 pm, I gave birth to my beautiful baby boy. I’ll spare you the details, but I’ll just saw it was quite an experience! In an instant, the love of my life was this not so little bundle of joy. Crazy to think about how much he has grown up these past two years. Time sure flies, doesn’t it?

Over the weekend my family from Boston was visiting so we had a mini Birthday party on Saturday. Nothing fancy, just cupcakes after our Easter Eve dinner. I couldn’t help myself but still be amazed while watching him eat his cake what a little man he is turning into. I still remember him as a newborn…
