Munchkin Latch Bottle Review

Making the transition from breast to bottle can always be a little bit difficult, especially if you can’t find the right bottle.  When I weaned my son, I tried 4 different types of bottles before I found one that we both liked.  The Munchkin Latch bottle is really quite innovative when you consider the nipple, the anti-colic valve, and the fact that the movement of the nipple actually mimics the natural movement of the mother’s breast.  The nipple on the Latch bottle is designed to stretch and move, which thus creates a better latch for baby.  The pressure against the nipple then releases the milk in the bottle.  What I find quite amazing with the Latch bottle is the Anti-colic valve.  This prevents air bubbles from travelling through, which reduces gas in your little one.

The Munchkin Latch bottle is easy to clean, in-expensive at under $10, and comes in a variety of stages for your baby.

Color Me Mine

Today our Mom & Baby program went for a visit to our local Color Me Mine studio here in Lethbridge, so that our moms could do a keepsake hand or footprint ceramic tile.

CMM 1

For those of you who don’t know what Color Me Mine is, it’s this really neat “paint your own” ceramic and glass fusion studio in Lethbridge! I took my daughter here earlier this spring on a little mommy-daughter date so that she could paint a mug for Father’s Day.

Color Me Mine is a fantastic place to design and color keepsakes and gifts, especially if you have little ones!

Here’s some photos from today!

DIY Floral Crown {Trendy Tot Tuesday}

FC 5

You know those photo shoots where you see little ones wearing the sweetest little floral crowns?! Well I have been swooning since I first came across an image of a little one on Pinterest wearing the sweetest little floral crown, but when I looked up several different etsy shops to purchase one for my own sweet little girl I realized they were extremely expensive. I knew it must not be that difficult to make them on your own and after watching several YouTube tutorials I came up with one myself.

FC 1
||Supplies||
Scissors and or wire cutters
Wire (the green floral wire is best)
Floral tape
Assortment of imitation flowers (this is the best part because you get to choose what kind of flowers you like)
FC 3FC 2
All you have to do is size the wire on your little ones head and cut accordingly (leaving a little extra). Bring ends together to form a circle and then wrap the wire in floral tape (If you have the green floral wire you can skip wrapping it). Arrange your flowers as you like onto the wire, kind of like you’re arranging a bouquet, attaching them as you go with the floral tape. You could probably use a hot glue gun too but I found this simpler and probably a bit more secure. Lets face it though, your little one probably wont keep it on their head for more than a photo shoot anyway 😉

Trendy Tot Tuesday

Hi I’m Tawnya, I blog regularly over at All Of Life’s Little Adventures where I talk about life as a Mom to my sweet (almost) two year old, Scarlett. Since becoming a mom, I have developed an interest in toddler fashion and feature some of Scarlett’s little outfit’s weekly on my blog. I especially love finding and supporting small businesses and mama shops, so I try to blog mostly about those items. I am honored that Linnden asked me to be a part of this community and jumped at the opportunity to share my love for toddler fashion with a broader audience. So thank you, Linnden for thinking of me!

Blog Button
So without further adieu. I received these adorable feather print pants from Izz And I. I first saw these sweet little pants on a friend’s Instagram account. I knew immediately that I wanted to pair them with Scarlett’s Chambray top (which sadly she is quickly growing out of). She is a petite little squirt but is sprouting up tall… it makes it hard for me to find clothing that fits her.

These little leggings are stitched really nicely and made with the softest (and lightest) fabric. Perfect for summer! I am really impressed with them and will definitely be following Izz And I for new prints in the future (InstagramThey also make really cute (and affordable) slouchy hats! I’m thinking about getting one for Scarlett, maybe closer to the fall though. I totally think she can rock it!

What are some of your current favorite small shops right now? What do you think of the patterned pants trend? I love them on Scarlett but I could never pull them off!!

How to Keep Your House Clean….When You Don’t Have Time to Clean

I don’t know about you, but I feel like since summer officially started (aka – the day my daughter ended PreK) I haven’t had a chance to clean my house.  Don’t get me wrong, my house is by no means dirty or (too) messy, I’m just finding that with busy days, open windows, and kids going in and out, in and out, my house seems to be a little bit more out of sorts than usual (with way too many stacks of laundry waiting to be folded).

While perusing Pinterest, I found some handy Cleaning Schedules.  Take a look!

Recipe: Kale Chips

Hands down, this is my favorite snack, and it’s a healthy one to boot!

Untitled design (4)

Start with 1 head of Kale.  Kale can be found at pretty much any grocery store.

Once you rinse and dry the kale, tear off pieces and place into a mixing bowl.  Drizzle with some olive oil (about 2 TBS), or a flavor infused oil of choice.  I used half olive oil and half truffle oil on this batch.

Place on a foil covered baking sheet and sprinkle with Sea Salt. Bake for 8 minutes at 350.  Take out of the oven, toss kale, and return to oven for another 8 minutes.

Chips should be crispy and crunchy when done. Voila!

Flavor variations:

Sea Salt & Vinegar – use oil & vinegar, then sprinkle with Sea Salt

Sea Salt & Lime – use oil & Lime Juice, then sprinkle with Sea Salt

Parmesan -sprinkle chips with Parmesan Cheese before placing in oven

Cheesy – sprinkle with Nutritional Yeast before placing in oven

 

My New Creative Outlet

May 23, 2013 my sweet little baby boy Dawson was born, baby #2 to our family!  Welcoming our new addition into the family was wonderful, yet a little bit challenging as Emmy (who was almost 5 at the time) was very comfortable being the “only child” at the time.  With all of the little ups and downs that we went through, I found that I needed a creative hobby that I could do in the evening once the kiddos were in bed. So I started SEWING (yes, me).

Before I knew it, Urban Cowgirl Designs + Accessories was born.  Since October 2013, I have made literally HUNDREDS and HUNDREDS of Infinity Scarves for people not only in Lethbridge, but all across Canada too!  This little “side job” has been so wonderfully rewarding.  I never knew that I could enjoy sourcing fabric, prints, and creating designs as much as I do!  Plus, I always love a good Infinity Scarf – it’s my go-to “mom-accessory” (honestly, it’s the best most practical piece of fashion that any mom could own)!

With all of that said, it brings me to this….my new(est) creative outlet!

Curating outfits.  I don’t know if you’ve ever spent any time on Polyvore, but let me tell you, it’s my new obsession!  What a handy tool for finding new fashion items, designing cute oufits, and not to mention a great way for me to add my Infinity Scarves into the mix too and actually SEE the possibilities!

Weekend Casual – perfect for hitting up your local Farmer’s Market or a relaxed afternoon of shopping.
Going out this weekend? Super chic skinnies paired with a flowy charcoal tank and Urban Cowgirl black and oatmeal bamboo Infinity Scarf.
And because I live in Southern AB, every gal needs her cowgirl attire!
As you can see from above, Polyvore is my new love.  I think that we are going to get along quite fabulously!

Fisher Price Laugh & Learn Crawl Around Car

Recently, a mommy from our Mom & Baby class got to review the Fisher Price Laugh & Learn Crawl Around Car.  Here’s what she had to say about it:

“Getting it out of the box the assembly wasn’t to bad, it only took me 20 minutes total to put it together and stick the stickers on. Some pieces could have been pre-assembled in the box but no big deal and you only needed a Phillips head screwdriver so that wasn’t to bad either. It only takes 3 AA batteries which was nice since some toys we have come across prefer to use the far more expensive C or D batteries.
The toy is great! It’s for 6-36 months, Naphtalie is almost 5 months but she did everything herself very easily. It makes loads of sounds and sings a bunch of songs and lets the parents and children interact with it together easily. Naphtalie played with it for 45 minutes last night which is completely unheard of she normally gets bored with her toys after 15 minutes or so. Some things I wish it had are:

A little seat in the bottom that could be removable as your baby grows and I also wish the shape sorter in the one door had a sensor that told baby what shapes they were putting in.

Otherwise this is a fantastic toy and out of 5 stars I give it a full 5!”
