My daughter has surprisingly become an accessories princess. And she loves to “mix and match.” So these cute handmade flower clips and crocheted hats from Woobie Wear are a perfect fit. Stretch your children’s fashion dollar along with the hem on these cute hats–with an adjustable ribbon the hat is one size fits most (newborn through 12 years’). The flower is a stand-alone clip that also transfers from hat to hairband to even your child’s clothing….
Whenever I wear my baby, curious parents ask me about my carrier. Having tried out dozens of carriers, I have a different favorite at each age for each different situation. If I have to choose just one carrier, however, I default to a ring sling. Lightweight and compact enough to fit in my diaper bag, adjustable for different positions, and perfect for breastfeeding, ring slings are my go-to baby carrier. Lots of parents worry, though, that baby is not secure enough in a ring sling.
The UpMama hybrid pouch-sling offers the adjustable flexibility and wide shoulder of a ring sling with the “bucket seat” and structure of a pouch.

Look under a bush and high in the sky but you can’t catch all of the butterflies in the world–but along your adventure, you may just find something even more important.
Can’t Catch a Butterfly is a sweet book, illustrated in the style of children’s crayon drawings. I had the pleasure of meeting Michelle Zimmerman, author and publisher of Rainbow Star Books, at a local wildlife center fair. As a speech-language pathologist, Zimmerman has written a book filled with love and help for pre-readers and children with special needs…
