I love that these items are high quality, so I know that they will last for the years to come. They are high quality wooden toys. These toys ar

I have thought about items that I have really appreciated and made a list of my favorite maternity must haves for all of you pregnant mamas. Every pregnancy varies person to person, but here is a great starting point. Prenatal Vitamin Prenatal vitamin's are a must! My doctor suggested that I start taking them before I conceived. With my first pregnancy I started taking them shortly before I got pregnant. With this pregnancy I was still taking them from when I started the first time. For me I need a gummy vitamin. I know that is not the case for everyone. My first pregnancy I took Vitafusion Prenatal DHA & Folic Acid Gummy Vitamins . With this pregnancy I am taking Hello Bello's Prenatal + DHA Gumm

Recipe: 1 cup of flour 1/4 cup of salt 1/2 cup warm water      Optional: Food coloring 1 teaspoon of coconut oil JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser. Reactivate it to view this content. During these long winter months I am running out of activities to do with my toddler. We try to get outside as often as we can, but sometimes it’s too cold! I found this simple play dough recipe while endlessly surfing the web late at night. I added the food coloring and coconut oil option. The food coloring gives it a fun edge and the coconut oil makes it so that it’s not so drying for your hands. It actually kind of moisturizes them. I made the dough while my little one napped and then we worked with it when she woke up. The first th

Jello Dig

Jello Dig Sensory Activity I have recently been looking for new ways to entertain my little one. I feel like she has been playing with the same toys for over 5 months. She seems to feel it too. I do try to rotate her toys so she has a variety to play with. But, I decided it was time to go on Pinterest to search for a few activities I could complete with Maci. I searched for activities that had little prep and possibly things that I already had at home. Each week I would like to complete a new activity. Not only is this fun for Maci, but for me too! Our first activity we tried was the Jello Dig. This is a great sensory activity for children 6 months to 5 years old. Here are some of the supplies you will need: throwaway aluminum tin (purchased ours from the dollar store), package of gelatin, a few of your child's favorite plastic toys (I used Maci's pacifier, four different shapes from her shape sorter, one of her spoons, and teething carrot), apron/bib, digging utensi
