The Coupon Queen Bee - Hug A Monkey Baby Sling Giveaway

Chiana prefers to be held most of the time - no surprise there! The Moby wrap works pretty well - except it is a bit of a hassle to put on.

That, and Jeff accidentally washed it with his coat that had diesel spilled on it. We've tried many different things and it's been washed a bajillion times - but still smells like diesel.

I would looooooove to try the Hug A Monkey sling with her!

MN Mama Must Haves - Smart Bottoms Diapers

Smart Bottoms is a cloth diaper company, but they have a different approach to sales. They have in-home parties like Tupperware or Pampered Chef. That way you can see and feel the dipes! It'd be nice to be able to see and touch 'em! There aren't any CD stores near us... but maybe that's a good thing! I'd want to buy a bunch! ;)

We'd love to try an AIO in pink, size medium!

Adventures in all Things Food - Eco-Foil Pans Giveaway

Sometimes it is really nice to have disposable pans on hand. Before the baby was born I made up a bunch of hotdishes in disposable pans and froze them. That way we could have a meal with minimal cleanup. I did throw a couple in the dishwasher and re-used them, but it was reallly nice to not have to worry about it.

They're also great for vacations and food gifts to people! Or to bring to a party!

It's a great bonus that these pans are recyclable! Better for the earth!

My Silly Monkeys - Minui HandySitt Giveaway

We only have our regular big high chair that we used with Ronan. He hasn't used it for a while...well...since we moved it's still in storage. He certainly would still fit in it, it's just big, bulky, and he likes to be a big boy.

The Minui HandySitt would be perfect for him when we go out, and for at home!
And it would be even more perfect for outings for Chiana in a few months!

PS: Princess DOT looks adorable and quite comfy in it! =)

Despite having sewn so many, I really love trying other types. Some of my favs are popular brands.

I Won!! - Conscientious Confusion - Diapers Etc GC

I won a $25 giftcard to Diapers Etc!!! I'm a little addicted to cloth diaper stuff and am sooo excited to have been able to shop there!!
I couldn't wait to to order.... so I decided to get a Bum Genius Elemental in Blossom pink for Chiana. The Elementals don't quite fit her yet, but they worked really well with Ronan and I'm guessing they'll be a fav with her too. AIOs are really nice cuz you don't have to do stuffing as with pockets (aka: laundry is quicker=).

Thank you sooooo much Diapers Etc, Conscientious Confusion, and Eco Chic Parties for the giveaways!
