Big Boy, Big Shoes: How Important Are Toddler Shoes?

How important are your toddler's shoes? While we have never turned our nose up at hand-me-downs, toddler shoes are items that we buy specifically for each child. Daddy D especially, having been (1) the last child of 8 kids and (2) a professional basketball player overseas, refuses to put his baby's feet in anything less than quality, supportive toddler shoes. Along with his growing body and personality, my little big man has some equally big FEET! My feet are wide and of average length, but both of my kids ended up with Daddy D's feet that are thin and long. At 19 months, Sebastian is now … [Read more...]

Warm Winter Clothes For Fast Growing Kids: Kids Fashion with #CookiesKids

Being from Southern California, cold fronts this intense catch me off guard and Alina's Winter wardrobe wasn't quite prepared for so much cold for this length of time.

Family History: Baby’s First Hat

Family History: Baby’s First Hat

Call me crazy, but I like guys in hats. They're in our family history, I guess you can say. Both my grandfathers wore hats. Even though I was young, I remember how my paternal grandfather would, with one sweeping hand, take it off to scratch his bald head, just to nestle it neatly back on. The mechanics of that movement took maybe 5 seconds flat. It was amazing. After my beloved Papi passed away, I took one of his old beanies home. It stayed in my closet, tucked in a corner, when on hard days I could press it close to my face and smell all my family history in the fabric. The smell has … [Read more...]

 

A Little Girl’s Summer of Dresses

A Little Girl’s Summer of Dresses

As our weather cools and winter approaches, a shift in my little girl's wardrobe is inevitable. The collection of summer dresses that has been our clothing staple will turn to sweaters, cardigans and jeans. But when the weather is hot and the hues of our world are bight, this little girl enjoys the ease and flow of a summer dress more than any other piece of clothing.

As It So Happens….

I forgot to order my Bountiful Basket this week. Oops! I will have to draw inspiration for this week's menu from my cookbooks and such. So in case you stopped by to swoon over delicious photos, there are none. So sorry! Instead, I'll leave you with a few of my sweet princess from yesterday. She looks so big in her jean shorts and summer top. Auntie bought her first pair of flip flop style sandals, and watching her master them this week has been a hoot. She has started to say "hands up!" and stick her arms straight up in the air... watching her learn new things has been the coolest part of my … [Read more...]
