Weelicious Cookbook

Feeding a hunger toddler can be one of the biggest challenges any parent can face. Little kids can be some of the most difficult people to please. While trying to think of things my child would eat other then cucumbers, pasta and watermelon I came across this book- Weelicious and fell in love with it.

The book offers 140 fabulous recipe ideas that children and adults love. I enjoy making items from this cookbook because not only are they healthy but overall they are easy to follow recipes that don’t require a ton of time… because let’s face it, we don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen each day!

With recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert items you will definitely find something your child will enjoy!

What’s your favorite recipe to make?

Shopping cart fun! Little Tikes Shopping Cart

I haven’t met a toddler that doesn’t love pushing something around. What better to push around then an adorable shopping cart. This sturdy plastic shopping cart had a deep basket for all those important items your little chef needs from the grocery store and has a fold-down seat just like a real shopping cart for a favorite toy or baby doll!



What’s your toddler’s favorite thing to push around the house? Share it with us!

Aden + Anais Muslin Swaddle Blankets- Doesn’t get much better then these!

Ever baby needs swaddle blankets and my absolute favorite are by Aden + Anais. These super soft muslin blankets will make your baby feel safe and cozy. These breathable cotton blankets allow your little ones to be warm without overheating them.

What I love most about these blankets is how many different uses I found for them. Swaddling of course was our first use but then we found these make great blankets for the stroller or to lie on during tummy time. Now my little one uses them to sleep with and loves carrying them around everywhere.


With so many pattern/color options everyone can find a style that fits them and their baby! This pack of four will keep you stocked for a bit but if you think one isn’t enough then order two! Also make great gifts for expecting moms!


Do you love these as much as I do? Let us know!

Family tree decal sticker for the baby’s room – in pink, blue and yellow

Have family that lives far away from your baby? Want to keep them near and dear to your babies heart? Consider this family tree decal — cute, adorable, and an opportunity to add more family photos to the room.

I love the pinks, blues, yellows, greens and browns in this version. Also, who could resist that mama and baby owl!

In our nursery we plan to add family photos to limbs and have a real old-fashioned family tree for the baby to admire! You can use sticker frames such as below to put up the family pictures:

We can’t decide if we should use photos we have already, or take new photos whenever someone comes to visit us. Polaroids could be a very fun solution here.

Let us know what you think — do you have something similar in your nursery? Send us a pic!

All the best,
