Those are adorable! I've been meaning to get around to making some bandana bibs but I'm sure the drooling stages will be over before that happens ;) haha. I would love to win :) Thanks for the giveaway.
Yay! You're the winner of one gender neutral Fresh Bib! Send me your mailing address and I'll get this out to you soon. rachel denbow at gmail dot com
"I think it's time we talked about your drooling problem."
"I can't believe you brought that up, Mom. You know how sensitive I am about it."
"Well, that's just it. I think we may have found a way to keep your shirts dry without compromising your highly developed sense of style."
"Well, you're wearing one of these trendy bandanas that is doing the job of a bib without looking like you forgot to take it off after your second breakfast. It's reversible with great prints on both sides and has plastic snaps instead of metal ones so it's less likely to burn your skin straight out of the dryer. To make it even easier, Fresh Bibs is a subscription service so you receive a new bib once a month and can rock this look all the way through your toddler years!"
"No more shirts sticking to my chest all day?"
"No more wet shirts."
"Promise there won't be any baby duck prints involved?"
"No baby ducks."
"Mom, you have to tell the others!"
I have been a fan of Brooke's work for awhile and was so happy to hear she and her husband had started a new business (along with Allison Vieger). Their branding is spot on and the prints they sent over are so fun. I love the idea of a subscription to something that you'll probably need a few of over the course of a year. I also like that it's a pretty affordable way to ensure those long days at home with your sweetie are sometimes interrupted with some fun snail mail.
Fresh Bib wants to share one of their bandanas with one lucky Smile and Wave reader! For your chance to win a unisex bandana from Fresh Bib just leave a comment below with a way to get in contact if you aren't signed in. I'll choose a winner and announce them here later this week.
Oh, how many shirts have I changed in one day due to the excessive drooling that comes along with teething! I'm so thankful Smith doesn't mind wearing a bandana all day long because he just looks that much more adorable in them! Am I right?
Once upon a time, in a land not very far away (um, our house), a brown paper package tied up with string arrived on our doorstep. Inside was the most beautiful handmade blanket in the shape of a tiger! We had heard great things about these blankets but there was one thing everyone failed to mention-tiger blankets are always hungry.
I placed the lovely blanket over the edge of Smith's crib while he rested on our bed because we both knew his crib was hardly ever used for sleeping and was more of a symbolic gesture. It wasn't long before Smith got the funniest feeling he was being watched. I told him it was probably nothing and to go back to sleep.
The tiger blanket took advantage of his position downwind and quietly crept up on the unsuspecting baby.
Before Smith knew it the tiger blanket had pounced and was getting into position to swallow him whole.
That's when the tiger blanket realized he was in trouble. For noone had bothered to mention to him that babies are always hungry, too.
P.S. Roxy Marj Design so generously sent this incredible blanket to Smith despite Ruby's attempts to add it to her top bunk decor. I've had it pinned ever since I knew we were pregnant with our mystery gender baby so it was such a lovely surprise. I can now say if you've ever been on the fence about purchasing it (or adding it to your registry), you won't be disappointed. It's such a playful addition to their space but it's also incredibly well made and soft. I know it'll be a favorite over here for many years.
