The Backpack Diaper Bag from Twelve Little – Review & Giveaway!

twelve little courage

My diaper bag needs have certainly changed over the years.  With three kids, instead of a bag that carries just newborn accessories, I now need a bag that can hold a variety of toddler snacks, spare diapers in two sizes, sippy cups, and distraction toys on top of all that a baby needs, and that list is anything but short and sweet.  I've also realized that with several people to transport around on our errands, and not any extra hands, I've GOT to have a hands-free bag that stays up on my ... ...continue reading

LÍLLÉbaby All Seasons Carrier Review & Giveaway!


Its no secret that babies love to be held.  Probably all day, if they had it their way.  This baby of mine, like many newborns, just hates to be put down!  She'll fall asleep on my chest in an instant, but it only takes about a minute in the bouncer before she realizes that she's NOT being held and that she's not happy about it!  For mothers of infants, sitters, crawlers, and even walkers, I totally recommend a sturdy baby carrier, and until I tried out a LÍLLÉbaby carrier, I didn't realize how ... ...continue reading

I love how photography has been sweeping the nation as a new hobby for anyone who can afford a camera.  There is so much to learn in this craft, especially when it comes to your equipment and experimenting with different styles of photography.  I've had our DSLR for over four years now, and I still get a rush from trying out new lenses, learning new techniques, and taking my pictures to a new level.  I'm really trying to master the craft of indoor photography lately, especially for children and ... ...continue reading

Princess Bowtique Review & Giveaway!

I've been talking with my friends about each of our favorite and least favorite stages of childhood.  Some parents have a certain age or stage that they really enjoy, and perhaps one that is really difficult.  Personally, I find the age of 2-3 the most hair-pulling and testing for me to be calm about, but I love love LOVE the newborn stage!  I love how my baby's needs are so simple and they are as cuddly as ever.  I love their long naps, their complete dependence without a fight, and how you ... ...continue reading

Hey Photographers! Butterfly Backdrops Review & Giveaway!

I may have become just a little obsessed with taking about a million pictures of my baby these first few weeks.  Newborns are just so pose-able and sleepy and tiny that I can't help but pull out my camera at every given moment!  Sure, my phone camera could do the job, but when you have beautiful backdrops and floordrops at your disposal, why not make something beautiful, dramatic, and worth printing for your wall?!  When I was putting together props for Miss B's baby announcement, I started ... ...continue reading

I have a little princess of my own, and I can still hardly believe it!  For months, I've been gathering and making the cutest things I can find to dress her up in, and while I'm having the time of my life, I'm also discovering how putting together an adorable wardrobe can really add up!  For only one outfit, you've probably got a dress, bloomers, tights, shoes, and a headband or bow.  These are small things, but I didn't realize how much I could spend by the end of it!  I've tried my hand at ... ...continue reading

If you have children, you understand the powerful connection that can reside between a child and his stuffed animal!  These special characters get taken everywhere -- on picnics, on vacations, and on every pretend adventure at home. They provide companionship during the day and comfort at night, and it can be small emergency when this friend goes missing. I totally understand this connection between my son and his bear. I love seeing my kids become attached to plush play toys, and knew my kids ... ...continue reading

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Blue Dragon.
