Bling Bib

Skipper has started to drool... and I mean dddrroooolll (picture the letters dripping). I have some bibs for her but she fills them up fast and usually she has to wear a different one after each nap throughout the day then they dry overnight (did I mention that she drools a lot?). I decided to try my hand at bibs so that she has more in the rotation. This one I made out of an old baby towel and some scrap fabric. I used an embroidery stitch and silver thread for the "chain" and "clasp" and some scrap for the "diamond". Now she can have rice cereal at a fancy restaurant without feeling under-dressed.

Toddler Pouch















I love this book called "The Toddler's Busy Book" by Trish Kuffner http://search.barnesandnoble.com/The-Toddlers-Busy-Book/Trish-Kuffner/e/9780671317744 It has tons of ideas for crafts, games and activities for kids 18-36 months (no, I don't still count my toddler's age in months but it's easier to write than years in this case). Yesterday we made a "Toddler Pouch" by stapling 1 1/2 paper plates right sides together and adding a yarn strap. Abs not only had fun decorating the pouch but she has also enjoyed hanging it on doors, wearing it as a necklace or purse and putting anything in it that will fit.



No Wise Cracks


I know that low-rise pants are popular with the girls but low-rise diapers are just ridiculous.  Concern for fashion starts at such a young age these days.
