Five Tiered Cupcake Stand

Posted on

You read that right! FIVE tiers! We are having cupcakes for Charlotte’s first birthday party, and her theme is Alice in Wonderland. This was really, REALLY easy to do. The best part? It only cost $11 in glassware and $4 for glue. That’s it! I want to give a shout out to Meghan for the idea. She made one of these bad boys, which inspired me to try it on my own.

I Eat at Mom’s

It’s World Breastfeeding Week! I have been thinking about what I wanted to write to add to the Breastfeeding Blog Hop, and I started thinking back to my experiences, and what helped me from the very beginning. First and foremost, my husband and I took a breastfeeding class with a lactation consultant, which I highly recommend for any expectant parents. At the class, we were given little slips of paper that said “I eat at Mom’s” to put in our baby’s bassinet after she was born. I packed my little slips of paper in the overstuffed labor bag, and tucked them in my baby’s bassinet before she even left the delivery room. I wanted to be sure that no one was going to accidentally give my baby a bottle or pacifier without talking to me first.

Reversible Crib Rail Covers

Posted on

I’m putting this on the list of things I wish I would have known before baby. I have the clear plastic guards for the front of the crib, but I never bothered with the sides. Charlotte doesn’t spend a lot of time in her crib unless she’s asleep, so I didn’t think I needed them.
