Sticky Bellies are perfect for documenting your baby’s growth. Everyone always asks to see pictures of the new baby and this way you cannot forget to get one at least once a month to show his or her growth and changes!Sticky Bellies



The selection of patterns is sure to please everyone. I recently chose Badge Boy for my little man on the way and they are too precious!! I think the Badge Boy pattern has the perfect touch of vintage. All of us at BabyElan {Daily} are ogling over the adorable patterns fit for your little prince (or princess!)

I love the “just born” sticker as well, knowing I can take one of his first pictures with it on have it to compare to the next 12 or more pictures we take on a his monthly birthdays.

One thing I look most forward to is posting them on a line at his first birthday party. Not only are these just great to have but what a creative gift to give someone expecting!

Glorious Easter Weekend is upon us!

We have our eggs ready for hiding, the baskets filled to the brim, I can already smell the ham cooking and the outfits are hanging pretty just waiting to be worn to church! This year, I’ve opted out of the “Easter Dress” for Gracie and opted in for the Easter Pinafore instead!

One stunning reversible Pinafore after the next! New to the world of decorative Pinafores? These beauties use to be worn as sleeves aprons. Now…Pinafores are the perfect shirt to wear with anything! Little girls can frolic matching these lovelies with skirts, jeans, shorts, or simply a diaper and cover! So fresh and airy, ideal for the warm weather that is fast approaching! Best part…a Pinafore can be both dressy and causal. A day at the park or Easter Sunday paired with a flowing white skirt and sparkly sandals!

100% cotton and handmade with love, it’s time to add this unique find to your little gals wardrobe! A versatile piece that comes in a TON of different designs! Did I mention they are REVERSIBLE!!

Rugged Bear {Spring is HERE}

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014

70s and 80s all week this week! I’ll take it!! It’s been a long time coming that’s for sure. I think we can all agree, no matter where you are in the US, this past Winter was brutal! Even the beginning of Spring was very unpleasant with more snow and COLD temps. Fingers crossed it’s all behind us and the short sleeves and open-toed shoes can stay. Our little ones are beyond thrilled to put away the coats and the jeans in exchange for shorts and flip flops. Gigi has so many adorable Spring and Summer outfits that I cannot wait for her to ROCK. Today, she started showing off her sweet wardrobe wearing an adorable set from Rugged Bear.

Rugged Bear

Polo tees are NOT just for little boys. A bright and cheerful Fuchsia polo paired with floral shorts make for the best little Spring time outfit a girl could have! Throw in some new fringed leather sandals and our Gigi is sporting an outfit that will snag compliments and keep her looking sassy and sweet all Spring and Summer long!

It’s only been a few weeks with our new Rugged Bear outfit and already I’ve paired that adorable polo tee with so many other bottoms, from shorts to skirts to capris. Affordable clothing that lasts and looks as fashionable as ever…that’s what you get with Rugged Bear season after season. Gigi still wears her fuchsia vest from last year’s collection on our continuous chilly early mornings. Each piece of clothing we’ve ever received from Rugged Bear stands up to time, toddlers, and tantrums! Looking forward to enjoying each piece for as long as possible and passing them down to cousin SJ.

Happy Spring {FINALLY} everyone!!

5 Summer Stroller Solutions w/ Bumbleride

Monday, March 17th, 2014

I know it’s CHILLY today in most parts of the country but trust me, it cannot last forever! Spring officially starts this week and we are all dying for it! I cannot wait…no, I.NEED…to get out with our stroller and do some major bonding with the little ones and power-walking for the body.

Received this beautifully written Summer Travel road-block solution checklist from Bumbleride recently that I just had to share. If you are in the market for a stroller, this is sure to help! And now is the best time to snag a stroller you will fall in love with and use it all Spring and Summer long!

Skip 5 Common Summer Road-Blocks with Bumbleride Strollers

Summer’s travel itineraries and outdoor adventures can raise a few stumbling blocks for new parents. Bumbleride offers simple solutions to five common challenges so that families can relax and have fun in the sun.

image0021. Bumpy Roads. Solution: All-Terrain Abilities
Venturing into the outdoors can pose a challenge for new parents—that is, unless they have an all-terrain stroller equipped to handle coastal adventures and bumpy forest paths. Bumbleride’s all-terrain Indie stroller (retail: $499.99), features an in-line front wheel lock system for greater stability on uneven surfaces; a rugged rear suspension system; and sturdy, 12-inch pneumatic tires. A large, 45-SPF canopy, Bumper Bar, 5-point breakaway harness and wrist strap contribute to the smooth ride.

image0042. Over-Packing. Solution: Light, Tight Mobility
Need to lighten the load? Lose the extra weight (without sacrificing quality) and gain a compact frame and tight, convenient fold with the Bumbleride Flite stroller (retail: $269.99). At just 14 pounds, this go-to urban and travel stroller is built like a bird: feather-light, but engineered to face the elements and navigate city obstacles. Four tough wheels with dual front and rear wheel suspension and a front-access cargo basket make it ready for any outing, while a built in shoulder strap and slim, compact fold means it easily switches from street crossing to cross country road trips. For more packing power, stow the stroller in the Travel Bag, and add the Snack Pack and Diaper Bag to tidily tuck away essentials for the day (accessories sold separately).

image0063. Jet-Lag. Solution: On-the-Go Options
Baby’s sleepy, toddler’s cranky, and six-year-old is about to crash from a sugar high. The Bumbleride Indie Twin (retail: $729.99), a lightweight, yet rugged two-seater stroller, comes to the rescue with multiple options on the go. Reclining backrests and adjustable footrests allow both infants and growing toddlers to rest comfortably. When older kids tire of walking, the Mini Board (sold separately), a skateboard-style stand, provides a comfortable perch. And for infants, the Bumbleride Carrycot (sold separately) latches on, offering an extended canopy for cozy naps on the road. (Strollers also come with a car seat adapter).

image0084. Over-Ambitious Itineraries. Solution: Flexible Functionality
For an itinerary crammed with diverse activities—the amusement park, the nature walk, the boat tour—the new Indie 4 (available spring 2014; retail: $599; bassinet included), is essential. Compact and lightweight, yet designed with four rugged pneumatic tires and all-wheel suspension to handle any terrain, the Indie 4 stroller handles both urban and off-road stroller adventures with ease. With a space-saving fold and new automatic frame locks, it can stand on its own for convenient loading and stowing. Add the Snack Pack and Diaper Bag (sold separately) to stash snacks, toys and essentials for extended excursions.

image0105. Heat Stroke. Solution: Climate Control Features
When humidity nears 100% and glaring sun tires eyes and threatens sunburn, Bumbleride strollers provide a breath of fresh air. The 45-SPF canopy extends for shaded UV protection. “Green,” high-performance fabrics withstand the heat and sun: the 50% recycled PET exterior offers durability and lasting color, while the 50% sustainable bamboo charcoal interior naturally absorbs moisture and regulates temperature.

Smart Bottoms {giveaway}

Thursday, March 13th, 2014

I’m a big Smart Bottoms fan. I got to meet the owner Christy last year and after hearing her passion for creating quality cloth diapers, they became my favorite brand. Smart Bottoms has revamped their 3.0 design by adding 2″ to the waist, they removed the hip snap so the diaper will last longer, and named it the 3.1. They just released 3 new Spring colors and I am in love!



Bloom Finch Rocket


Smart Bottoms 3.1 fit most babies 10-35 lbs. They are all-in-ones, meaning the liner is attached and can be folded  to customize where your child needs the most absorbency. The liner even has 10 layers of absorbency. Smart Bottoms uses 100% certified organic cotton, so no nasty pesticides or petroleum based fabric will touch your baby’s skin. It takes 6-8 washes to fully prep a Smart Bottoms 3.1.

They are very absorbent and I have yet to have a leak in the year we’ve used them. My 16 month old even sleeps in his.  They are designed with a wide elastic, so it reduces red marks. I have never seen a red mark on his thighs (even when he had chubby legs) but he does get an occasional red mark on his back, but it isn’t deep or uncomfortable at all. 3.1′s have 4 rise settings so they can grow with your child.

I love that the newest 3.1′s are gender neutral. I had to have all 3! My favorite is the Finch which is grey with yellow snaps. 

Finch smart bottomsThere is something about a grey diaper that I can’t resist!

Bloom, green with yellow snaps, came just in time for St. Patrick’s Day!

Smart Bottom 3.1

And Rocket, blue with green snaps, is the perfect Spring blue!
