I told you how incredible her cookbooks are for making purees and finger foods. The only problem we had when were in that type of baby food making stage was the lack of certain tools.. . .

Annabel Karmel food making accessories!

The other day I found an incredible surprise at my door. The fabulous people from Infantino and Mom Central have continued to include me in a test drive for Annabel Karmel food making accessories.

Pumpin’ Comfort Kit for Nursing Mothers

If you have been around my blog any little bit since AppleBlossom was born you may know that I’m breastfeeding. It is not something that I talk about much, but it is a fact. Now at almost a year old, we’re still making it. No idea how long we’ll go, not really worried about that. What I do worry about is pretty and proper coverage, which I often get with my wraps and slings and also my Nurf… but that’s another post for another day.

Snikiddy Cheddar Baked Fries {Review/Giveaway}

Recently I joined in on a team of Mama’s for MamaBzz and my first participation is for Snikiddy Cheddar Baked Fries. Can you say yum?! One of the things that excites me is the “All Natural” part, then there is no preservatives, gluten & wheat free (hear that SisterB?) and no corn syrup. It gets even better when you look at the back of the package and find that is also has no trans fat, no hydrogenated oils, and low in saturated fat. With all the “snack foods” out there today it is quite difficult to find anything worthy of being eaten. What is Snikiddy? Founded in 2006 by Janet Owings and Mary Schulman (a mother/daughter team), Snikiddy® is a brand of great tasting, family-friendly snack foods made from simple, wholesome and real ingredients. Snikiddy® is a shortened (and let’s face it, easier to say) form of the word persnickety,. . .

Infantino Jumbo Wheel Play Space

When I heard the doorbell ring and went to eagerly greet the FedEx man, I was so excited to see that it was a box from Infantino! Inside I discovered the Jumbo Wheel Play Space and as I put it out on the floor of our living room, I could not wait for AppleBlossom to get down their and investigate. My excitement was quelled for a short while as minutes before the FedEx man arrived she fell asleep. *sigh* Oh the rarity when I want her to skip a nap! Well I gave into my common sense and let her sleep, but when she did awaken, boy was she in for a surprise! The Jumbo Wheel Play Space is packed with fun and space for crawling and tummy time activity.

Infantino Fold & Go Bouncer

As I have discovered, not everything goes according to plan when you have a new baby in the house. In our example, a few months before AppleBlossom was born we discovered that the Enginerd was being laid off and then two months after she was born we were off moving from Georgia to Tennessee to start a new life and a new job at a fabulous company. It was only last month that we were able to finally sell our house in Georgia. During this time there was a lot of back and forth. Driving to the house in Georgia, my parents house, my brother’s house, the Enginerd’s parents house, the Enginerd’s sister’s house. Many of the times it seems the only chair that we could put AppleBlossom in was the carseat, and after hours driving that was not ideal. She needed something soft and playful. We were lucky to. . .
