Laurie Berkner Band (closed)

True Random Number Generator 8

The winner of the Laurie Berkner CD Giveaway is Stefanie!! Congrats, I will email you to get your information

After having Molly, I decided it was time to dig out some of my older children’s music CD’s so I could introduce them to Molly early. The main CD I was looking for was the CD we call BUZZ BUZZ!! This is a CD my children fell fast in love with. It is one of the Laurie Berkner Band CD’s and it really gets children up and moving.
We first discovered the Laurie Berkner Band on Nickelodeon. The very first song we heard was Bumblebee(buzz buzz). We had to buy the CD right away. Brooke-Lynn and Aiden loved to sing along to all the songs on the CD whenever we went anywhere in the car. Music time in our house was often “BUZZ BUZZ please”. I would sing, “I’m the biggest monster” (Monster Boogie) while chasing my children around the house, until we got to the “monster boogie” part and then we would stop and dance and LAUGH!
After my children were a little older I used the Buzz Buzz CD at the daycare I worked at. The children loved when I chased them around the playground singing the Monster Boogie song. They asked for it pretty much anytime we were outside. The “Clean it up” song became our theme for clean up time at the daycare.
I am so glad that I get to use this CD with another child. Molly’s face lights up whenever she hears the first song “I Really Love to Dance.” Funny thing is, Molly does really love to dance already. My older children remember the words to all the songs and sing along. Quite often I find them just singing the songs to Molly.
I definitely recommend that anyone with young children buy at least one of the Laurie Berkner Band CD’s
I am so excited to be able to give a lucky reader one of the Laurie Berkner band CD’s. (“The Best of the Laurie Berkner Band”)

So one of the biggest things we go through as moms of babies is teething. I often hear…My baby is teething and it is keeping him/her up all night. What do you do for a teething baby? Well we learned about a great teether called Sophie the giraffe.
Sophie was born on May 25th 1961, in France. You can read her story here SOPHIE
Although I did not get Sophie till very recently I can say with confidence that Sophie is definitely a teething mom’s best friend! Well I guess that would be the teething baby. We got Sophie in the mail and after pulling her out and getting her all clean Molly took to Sophie right away. Sophie not only works as a great teether, but she is fun because anywhere Molly plays with her she Squeaks, a sound that Molly definitely loves to make over and over. Also she is a toy that baby can easily hold in his/her hand. Check out these cuties playing with their Sophie Giraffes!!

If you would like to purchase Sophie the Giraffe you can do that here SOPHIE

Ady's Edibles

So for this review I am going to introduce you to a YUMMY product!!! I ordered some amazing fudge from a great gal I met while pregnant with my daughter Molly. She has gone from making her own family fudge to making it so others can enjoy. All I have to say is ENJOY I DID! I ordered half a pound of chocolate peanut butter swirl and half a pound of white chocolate cookies and cream.
The owner of this store, Amanda, has expanded this business to include, not only being able to order from her menu of fudge, but doing a make your own order. Along with that she has also made a fudge of the month club. You can sign up and however long you sign up determines the discount you get! How neat is that!
A list of flavor cans be found Facebook Notes
You can look at all the notes on this page and find out all the exciting things she has to offer! Like the page while you are there!

So when I had my youngest daughter I saw all kinds of references to baby legs. I had never heard of them when I had my first two children. I had no idea what everyone was talking about. So I went searching and found out what they were. How cool to have a product that you can just slip on your baby’s legs when it is too cool for bare legs? Also, how cool to have a product to use when it is so warm you don’t want thick pants on your child, but you want to protect their little knees from the floor once they learn to crawl!
Now most people assume that baby legs are just for little girls, but they have some really cute boy patterns out there too!
We got Molly her first Baby Leg’s as a Christmas present. We got three pairs and they are super cute. The first thing I checked was the inside for loose strings. You know you don’t want their little toes getting caught on anything as you are trying to slide their little feet in. There were no loose strings and the seams were all done really well.
We put them on hoping they would not leave marks on her chunky little thighs, and they didn’t. Molly is a fast little crawler and her knees have little rough spots from it. These were the perfect thing to keep the knees protected from the floor. A bonus, because we cloth diaper, putting pants on Molly is sometimes hard with her fluff butt, this way we don’t have to cover the diaper!!
We did have to pull them up quite a bit, till we figured out how to put them on so they stayed up. Molly does like to pull on them, but they don’t come down which is nice. Oh and they help keep socks on. I would recommend these for any mom or dad!
Loving those baby legs!
