    Looking for a Christmas gift for dad? I've got a great one! A Mantry. It's "The Modern Man's Pantry" and can be gifted as either a subscription service or an individual crate. Each crate is filled with 6 full sized American made artesian foods that all have masculine packaging perfect for the gourmet (or just hungry) manly man in your life. The Mantry that I received was the Coffee And A Smoke Mantry (see past boxes here). This Mantry has a really nice range of coffee & smokey foods from sweet to savory. I love each items packaging (true to the man theme) and the variety. It's a little…

    Fun day at the mall today!  We tried to get your picture taken with Santa, but the line was SO long and we didn’t want to risk you having a meltdown.  But you finally stayed awake in your stroller while we were walking around the mall :) You slept through the night again last night, kiddo.  I’m starting to think that we’re going to be able to expect this from you all the time now.  I would absolutely love it if you kept sleeping through the night.  What a treat that would be; a one-month-old who sleeps at least 6 hours at a time.  If that’s the case, I’ll…

The Parenthood and House of Lies stars welcomed their second daughter on Friday, Dec. 19, they announced via Twitter. “Delta Bell Shepard is here.

  • Helping parents understand infant sleep patterns

    19 Dec 2014 | 7:41 am
    Most parents are not surprised by the irregularity of a newborn infant's sleep patterns, but by six months or so many parents wonder if something is wrong with their baby or their sleeping arrangements if the baby is not sleeping through the night. Health-care providers, specifically nurse practitioners, can help parents understand what 'normal' sleep patterns are for their child, according to researchers.

    Social anxiety is one of the most common psychiatric disorders among children and adolescents. A new study has found that together, the quality of parent-infant relationships and early childhood shyness predict the likelihood of social anxiety in adolescence.

    If your baby loves snuggling with plush toys as well as chewing on them, the organic Waldorf Doll from Olives & Pickles might just be a winner (you may be too... keep reading for a giveaway). This snuggly soft square figured little guy is a wonderful shape for little hands not only to hold, but to curl up and fall asleep on. He's almost like a mini pillow. His knotted hand hold a 3” teether made with 100% untreated solid Beech wood. This is a clever attachment because it's easy to remove for washing or even adding other little toys, pacifiers, etc. Although he is hand washable, I like…

    So it was brought to my attention the other day by a really good friend that I haven’t posted here in quite a while. Guilty as charged. It is not for lacking of desire. I have tons of ideas and topics I would like to write about, but there have been two problems: 1) non-existent free time and 2) when I do have free time, I can’t seem to get the thoughts in my head out on paper. If you read my last post you will know why I haven’t had a lot of free time. In one word: Evan. Our little one is just shy of 7 months old. Caring for him has been more work than I could ever have…

    The sanctuary’s music and message fade the instant I see one. They snatch my attention from intimate conversations. Even the deepest gloom cannot hold my focus while these remain in view. The immediate and thorough captivation brings me no guilt. I’m convinced God designed infants to draw our attention. Though many ancient cultures dismissed the influence of youth, children signified divine favor. God’s people discouraged little ones from demanding undue attention, but Scripture related other notions about new lives. Psalm 127 describes children as a heritage and reward…

Now at almost 17 pounds and wanting to sleep as far away from me as possible, my independent little man turns half a year. Right now we are sitting on the couch and he’s petting his face with my hair having the time of his life (he knows hair is a no no) and I’m laughing back at him through tears. How do other mothers deal with this heart break? I don’t want him to grow anymore 😭

    Is Halle Berry spending the holidays in Paris?  Halle and Olivier Martinez were spotted arriving in Paris together with their son Maceo.   I’m going to venture a guess that since Nahla isn’t along (unless she wasn’t photographed), they’ll likely be back in L.A. before Christmas day. Halle looked chic in her tall black boots and black leggings as she walked through the airport and was seen waiting in a chair with Maceo.  Maybe the couple is making a quick visit to family before heading back to Los Angeles to be with Nahla.  Perhaps she’s spending some time…

Being a huge fan of the first movie in the trilogy, and owning the other two in our personal movie collection, we were not going to miss it. You can’t top a cast like Robin Williams, Dick Van Dyke, Ben Stiller (now a favorite of mine after Walter Mitty), Ben Kingsley, the amazingly awkward museum manager Ricky Gervais, and the hilarious antics of Owen Wilson and Steve Coogan (who should always dress like a Roman Centurion in my opinion).

No one ever says it right, it’s Halle, like Sally.” From the NOVA video Zeppelin Terror Attack: On the day that came to be known as “Zep Sunday,” tens of thousands of relieved Londoners picked over the wreckage for souvenirs.

Like Arbutus, a flower name that was totally new to me. Apparently Gloxinia can refer to either the genus Gloxinia or to several specific flowers called Gloxinia (e.g., Florist’s gloxinia, Creeping gloxinia, Hardy gloxinia) that are not part of the genus.

    Back when ocean liners were the main mode of long distance travel, it was common for babies born at sea to be named after the ship they were born on (e.g., Cleveland, Martello, Numidian). So it was notable when a baby was born on a ship and not named for that ship. Case in point, the first baby born aboard the RMS Carmania: The first baby to be born on board the new Cunard turbine liner Carmania came into the world in midocean last Wednesday. The baby is a boy, the son of Russian parents, who were among the 1,001 steerage passengers arriving here on the Carmania yesterday. The saloon…

    In July, Eleanor of British Baby Names shared a 100-year-old newspaper article called What’s in a Name? It said that a “correspondent of leisure” had kept track of all the female names that appeared in the Marriages and Deaths column of the Glasgow Herald during the second half of 1913. He spotted a total of 208 different names (shared among 3,500 women) during that time. The two most popular? Margaret and Mary. The next-most-popular were Elizabeth, Agnes, Janet and Isabella. The least popular were the 73 that appeared only once, including: Ailsa Alys Anchoria Carina Carmen…

  • Introducing Inglesina Strollers!

    18 Nov 2014 | 6:16 am
    Stroller Envy is excited to at long last feature Inglesina strollers. I've personally tested the Swift, their lightest weight umbrella style and was so impressed that I knew I had to get around to researching all of them. Since Inglesina began, it has experienced steady growth. The initial 10 years of its existence produced the English-style pram only. But the 1970s, space exploration and evolving technology influenced production and the first modern stroller called the "Apollo" was produced. The eighties and nineties were about complementing the stroller line with accessories for infants.

The City Mini Zip is the most compact in the City Mini line of Baby Jogger strollers and coming in Spring 2015 is the Vue Lite, a more lightweight and simplified version of the Vue.

    Thanksgiving!  A great holiday, and one that for the last six years has been challenged by the climate change convention.  It always is the case that the Friday after T-day, Luis has to fly across the world to work his butt off with a bunch of governments who can’t agree on the future of our planet.  Grand bargain aside, it messes up a perfectly good holiday.   We threw a party anyway, and now that I am on my own for almost three weeks with the girls, my turkey leftovers seem limitless. I am going on three days now and still am not tired of them. Take me with you! So, on the big…

Today when we were driving to preschool Elena told me that she was Twilight Sparkle and Lucia was Pinkie Pie.  I am Rainbow Dash (yes!) and Papa is Apple Jack.  In case you hadn’t guessed, she has been watching a lot of My Little Pony.  Grandma is Rarity.  Diana is Princess Celestia, and Alex is the King.  Ragan is Fluttershy.  So that’s sorted. I figure there is only a small window of my life when I will know the names of all the My Little Ponies.  And I can actually appreciate Elena’s logic. My little alpaca.

We all had jetlag and now a cold for me and Elena. She started a new Spanish-German pre-school which means we are “settling in,” a.k.a 3 hour school day a.k.a I get nothing done. But Diana and Rafi’s wedding was every bit as glorious as expected.  We loved being in San Francisco, and I am still dreaming of Whole Foods. But before the big wedding weekend, we reunited with Luis and headed south to a tiny beach house in Santa…

    My sister has always been my champion.  In my early memories I remember not liking her that much because she was so cute that all my friends wanted to play with her instead of me.  But by the time I was about 15, I had gained hero status in her eyes and she would come in my room and organize my collections of art supplies and we would listen to Ani Di Franco.  I was always saving my Halloween candy, waiting for some unknown special occasion, and she would come in and eat it. I can tell you that over the years things have changed a lot. After Lucia was born last March she came to visit me…

    Christmas is the perfect time for crafting.  It’s cold outside, the holidays are on and so it’s a great way to keep the kids entertained.  My preference is always for quick and easy crafts.  Anything too involved and I find that the kids patience wears thin and the crafts don’t get finished.  So with that in mind I’ve picked four fun and colourful crafts most of which come with free printables too. 1.  How cute are those printable Christmas crackers?  The printable templates also come as blank ones so they’re great to give to the kids and let them decorate…

Ladies, it is beautiful. The gold frame really makes the brown tones in the picture pop.  The artwork is quality, shipment is fast and the prices are great. I couldn't believe how low Fulcrum's framed pictures are for a gallery.
