clothes are optional...


It's been a little too warm around here for much of anything, including clothes ;)


We have been doing a lot of playing on the 3 season deck lately, Cullen's water table is out there and he always brings all kinds of toys out there as well. He just loves being outside and doing his own thing and he always loves an audience ;)

We haven't gone to the pool over these past few really warm days because it is insanely packed and I think that would make Cullen even more cautious about getting in the water.  C is a total water baby, loves playing in his water table and he'd spend the day in the bathtub if I would let him but he does not like going in the pool.  The water is only a foot deep so he can easily stand in it but he cries whenever we put him in, even if we are holding him :( We are just going to keep on trying and hope that eventually he will warm up to swimming/the pool.  

The couple of times we have gone to the pool it's been so hot that I usually just bring crackers, a food pouch and cereal for Cullen to eat.  The food pouches make sure he gets something nutritious to eat and I don't have to keep it cold so it works perfect!  Last time we went Cullen tried a new Earth's Best organic fruit and grain puree, he had the banana raspberry brown rice and he seemed to really like it!  

Here is a little bit about the new Earth's Best purees....

 Earth’s Best Organic Fruit and Grain Purees hit shelves last month! These purees are a delicious blend of organic fruit and hearty whole grains in a unique, portable, squeezable pouch perfect for babies 6 months and older.

The fiber in whole grains helps baby stay satisfied longer after meals and snacks and each variety contains 45% of the daily value of Vitamin C. Whole grains contain all three layers of the grain, making this new product naturally richer in vitamins and minerals as compared to baby foods manufactured with refined grains, where vitamins and minerals may be stripped away due to processing.
The new Earth's Best Organic Fruit and Grain Purees will be available in Apple Peach Oatmeal, Apple Plum Kamut, Banana Raspberry Brown Rice and Pear Apricot Barley.

I have a GIVEAWAY to offer one of you!  A sampler pack of the new purees!
Just leave a comment if you want to be entered, winner will be drawn in a week!


WINNER - LUCKY #4
Jennifer! I sent you an email

A least he has a diaper on! My daughter takes hers off.

I would love a chance to win the sampler pack, my daughter loves those, she would eat those all day long if I let her.

It's been so hot here in southern VA this week, that I wish clothes were optional for me! haha! With a little one on the way, I would love to be entered into your giveaway! PS. Love your new banner!

Noah's been sleeping in nothing but a diaper. C is very adorable as always!
I'd also love to be entered into the giveaway! I'm trying to work with Noah on feeding himself and these seem like they would work perfect : )

What a sweet face! Harper was scared of the pool at first too. She's a total water baby as well. We discovered that she was scared when people went under the water. She didn't understand it. She's warmed up to it now. I'm curious to see what she thinks of the ocean next month. Fingers crossed!

We love Earth's Best & could totally use a sampler pack!

It has been too hot for words up here...I don't want to know what July and August are going to be like if June has been this hot!

We love Earth's Best around here! My little dude (jut about Cullen's age) loves all of their pouches...I need to try these new ones!

I haven't seen these in our stores yet! I'll have to keep my eyes out. I thought we were done with the puree pouches but now that they're getting molars, they don't seem to want to chew real food. If I see them, I'll have to pick them up. And, as always...C is adorable. You always have him dressed so cute.

We've seen these but haven't tried them yet! They seem like a great idea, so convenient!

This looks like a great way to eat healthy on the go! We live in the desert and it has averaged about 112 degrees this week- so pools in the shade help make my eight month old a little less "House Fever"- or maybe it is just me : )

Cullen is just like my son Oliver......no clothes and happy as a clam in water :) I give Oliver the Plum pouches when we are on the go but have never tried the Earths Best.......would LOVE to try them out, especially the ones with rice etc in them. Happy Summer!
