We took JDaniel to the YMCA this summer to participate in the infant-parent class. It was only four classes, but he had a lot of fun. We learned activities we can do in the water with him. The instructor was a wonderful lady who reviewed what we learned during previous classes and taught us new activities too. We worked on blowing bubbles, Continue Reading
JDaniel is doing what we do and saying what we say more and more each day. Earlier in the summer I got him a watering can at Target in the dollar area. He loves to water the plants along with me. My husband planted a small tree for his 6 month birthday. JDaniel loves to toddle across the yard and take care of his tree. We are trying to let him help Continue Reading

I really wanted a water table this summer for JDaniel. I searched for deals. I looked at Craig’s List for used ones. I just couldn’t bring myself to pay the price at the store or wasn’t fast enough for the Craig’s List deals. Finally I settled on using a plastic tub I already had and put some sand toys, kitchen utensils, a fancy straw to blow Continue Reading

I love this print of Cheryl’s Watercolor ‘In the Swim of It’. The whimsical dolphin would fit perfectly into any nursery or child’s room. It would hang beautifully over a changing table. Little ones would enjoy watching the dolphin and his friends swimming by.
