Grab*It Gadgets

Another creation in the making...the Grab*it Gadget.

The Grab*it Gadget is the perfect little teether and toy. There are six coordinating fabrics circled together creating a loop of grabbing fun. This handheld toy provides a chance to further develop hand-eye coordination and relieve little gums. An all-natural wooden ring is the centerpiece for this fun fiddle gadget. Attached are six spokes of 100% cotton fabric, lined with interfacing, to stay sturdy and provide cushioned, teething relief. Each spoke also has ribbons in varying textures to toggle, chew, and feel. The ribbons have been cut straight and heat-sealed (without chemicals) to keep from fraying. A great little gadget for at home, in the stroller, car, or on the go.

Working Working

I've had some family babysitters over the past couple weeks. As a result, I have been able to make an enormous amount of are just a few of the projects I have been working on.

Summer Days

Oh the lazy days of summer, sitting by the lake, learning to swim, feeding the ducks, picking raspberries, taking boat rides, staying warm by the fire, eating s'mores, star gazing. Oh, as much as I am a city girl, I am a country girl, too. Looks like Layla May is too.

Play for the Day

Layla's first summer play. We went to the Surflight theater in Long Beach Island - it was the children's theater so the play was only 50 minutes long (with intermission). Lots of families, babies, toddlers, and children. We saw Cinderella. Layla LOVED it. She sang and danced in her little theater seat. She wasn't heavy enough to keep the seat down so if I didn't put pressure it would flip up sandwiching her in between! When she was on my lap she kept peering left and right over the head of the man in front of us so she could see what was happening on stage. She new exactly when to clap and would sometimes start right before everyone else did. She oohed and ahhed the whole time. The grown-ups were watching her more than the show. It was a delight.
