Baby Socks Suck

Good fitting baby socks are incredibly hard to find - our faves are Pumas - they are the only ones that won't fall off. Go figure! (found at Gordman's in Lafayette IN)

Delaney Laughing at Our Dog, Showbiz

We cannot get our child to hardly laugh at anything funny we do - maybe we are just not funny people. LOL. I can get her laughing when I talk in a french accent or when my hair tickles her face or when I tickle her sometimes - but not like this. Guess we will have to keep the dog around. :) Pull rope game must be hilarious! Silly girl!

Roll-Up Tie High Chair for Baby - Sewing Pattern

The Anywhere High Chair - Etsy

The Tie Chair

Must Try: nutella wontons. (Giada). Just about a tsp of nutella in the middle of a square won ton, brush edges with water, fold over into a triangle and seal. Then deep fry them for less than a minute, drain on paper towels, sprinkle with powdered sugar and enjoy. You can do it with bite sized candy bars too.

Great products for eating out with kids:

Brilliant Boobtopia Giveaway!

Now that momglish is my primary language it only seems fit to start off the new year with a fabulous giveaway for all my fellow breastfeeding mamas out there!  The lovely people at Egg2Cake have so graciously provided me with two sets of these witty Boobtopia door hangers for breastfeeding - one for me and to give to one lucky reader!

These doorhangers are sturdy, sassy and perfect for pumping at the office or breastfeeding on the go. With this set of four I can keep one in my desk, one in my pump-n-style bag and one or two in my diaper bag.

No more shouting through the door to Grandma Milly who shakes the door handle wildly and proclaims to the rest of the family, "WHY is this door locked?! The door is locked! Does anyone know why this door is locked??" Yup it has happened. And yup the door tag would have came in handy that day.

The rules are easy peasy, just leave a comment on this post by Friday, January 14 12AM EST to enter! Be sure to include your email address so I can reach you if you win!

Good luck, and be sure to check out all the other fabulous paper products at the EggCake shop!
