25% off burp cloth sets!

There are barfing babies all over the world right now who are soiling mom's shirt. Their faces have nothing soft and luxurious to rest upon. It's not right.

I have a few burp cloth sets in my etsy shop. I'm ready to just clear out my inventory and make space in my tiny storage area.

Everything is 25% off! Enter code BABYLOVE at checkout. Great, inexpensive, cute Christmas gift for a new mom and baby!

Double sided, made of flannel and flannel/cotton chenille. They are soft and absorbent.

If my description doesn't sell you on it, surely my fine photography will! This is what I have left and I won't be making any more. I'm closing up shop (again).

Thanksgiving. I am thankful for this monkey in a boy suit.

Turkey day was Daddyless around here. Mark had to go out of town on business Thursday morning. We had dinner at my mom's with my in-laws joining us.

Brock got GQ with a too-big vest and shirt.

Notice that I combed his hair to the side, but it won't stay that way.

I think that Brock is a robot because he doesn't eat food. I don't even know how he survives.

With his grandmas, my mom above and Mark's below.

At one point, I was telling a story about an automated voice on my answering machine and mimicked it. Boy did Brock think that was hilarious. So we all kept doing it, of course.

Tiny tots gone wild

We had a little playdate Sunday, many of us escaping Sunday football. Mark was out of town, so I had a football-free zone. We made little pizzas and let the kiddos run about.

All of these ladies except one I have known since we were pregnant. Our kids range from 13 months to 20 months.

It looked like a toy explosion.

Olivia has the most lovely lips, if I only could take a proper picture! She is the oldest of the kids.

Emery is a doll. He and his mom always look like fashion plates. He's younger than Brock by 2 months, but is much bigger.

Brock said, "Look at me! Look at me! I'm classy too!" as he nommed on a ball.

Brock loves the ladies. "Hey, baby. They must be missing an angel in heaven ..."

It was a great time catching up with friends and letting the kids have some fun.

Furniture giveaway in Albuquerque, N.M.

I got an email through my blog about a giveaway for children's furniture. It's only for Albuquerque-area residents. Basically, this company works with Costco and sometimes people return brand-new furniture to Costco but they can't really re-sell it. This company, Epoch Design, doesn't want to have to pay to ship it back to them or come pick it up, so sometimes they just do a giveaway.

If you enter, you have to be able to arrange pickup very quickly. Please see their blog post for more details.

Evan Wolfe

This is Evan Wolfe. I know him. He is 9 months old, and he is fighting very hard for his life against a brain tumor. It's malignant and nasty and has already rendered him blind and deaf, hopefully temporarily. But he's a brave little boy and he keeps trying.

It's a rare tumor that's not very treatable. His only real chance was a controversial option of a FDA clinical trial through the Burzynski Clinic in Houston. It's really expensive and not very much of his medical care has been covered by insurance.

If you're a parent, you know you'd do anything to save your child's life. But this family will drown in these medical bills.

That's why I'm trying to make people aware of his story and lead you to a website where you can donate as little as $10. I say that because I'm broke and can't afford to donate to causes very often. If you're broke, you can probably still spare $10. If you're not broke, you can probably spare more. If all you can do is forward his link to someone else, please do. If you can blog about him, even better.

Here is his website.

Please pass the word on. It may save this little angel's life.

Tiny boy in a big Halloween world

Remember how Brock cried about wearing his costume? Well, once he got around all the kids and the fun, he totally didn't care! I had to work Halloween night, but Mark took Brock to Mall-o-Ween at the mall and he had a blast. He looks so tiny wandering around there. He got a lot of attention. I was a bit disappointed in how the wings worked out, but I guess it doesn't matter.

Information on the costume can be found here.
