Hello my wonderful blog members!!!!  Can you believe we are almost done February? How did this happen????   I swear every day I have more gray hair (yes GRAY HAIR) and I blink and the day is finished.  It leaves me constantly asking myself  ' Did I make the most of today?', and often I still feel like the answer is "NO".  I think I have to re-think what a day should mean in the life of a WAHM with a toddler because I keep being told I am trying to do too much and cant juggle it all. We'll see!! ;-)

So, I'm writing to see who is paying attention. I have 125 members here on this blog, and I'd like every single one of you to reply to this post.  I have a secret that ONLY you 125 members are going to get to have a chance at first, but to do this, I need you all to comment with a way to contact you. If you DO NOT feel comfortable leaving your email, please use the contact us tab above and Send your information through there.  IT IS REALLY important you get into contact with me asap!!!!  You have 2 days!!!

Check out our shopping tab above.  Right now anyone who purchases APPLE CHEEKS products stands to win one free APPLE CHEEKS ITEM with their order!!!  (note, the value will be over 10.00)   I am a huge fan of the Apple Cheeks Inserts, I have the 2 pack set, and love them!!!  I also love their diaper, I like the way the pocket opening is in the middle so you dont even have to take the insert out because it agitates in the wash and falls out.  *** IF the shopping cart is giving you issues, or the shipping isnt working or is off, we will need to correct that, we are having a hard time with this cart and cant seem to figure it out, IF anyone has a cost effective as in FREE cart they can suggest that is html based and can be put anywhere, please let us know***

Happy Little Toes ( Baby Shoe Review)

Happy Feet... How's about some Happy Little Toes????

First I want to introduce you to Jen at Happy Little Toes.Please go visit them and give a big Eebie hug & love, join their page and grab up some awesome shoes!!        HAPPY LITTLE TOES

Jen Siew is a stay at home mom of two wonderful children ages 4 and 2. She started Happy Little Toes in 2009 in hopes to provide the best leather shoes to her customers. Jen started selling in Orange County Marketplace, building a face book fan page in September 2010 and launched her retail website in January 2011.  When I asked Jen what her products were all about, she had this to say: Moms and kiddos love our products because the shoes are soft, light and flexible. The feedback from our moms is all positive and our sales have grown steadily.  Happy Little Toes Mission is: Providing the comfiest shoes and best service to our customers at a reasonable price. 


Eebie Baby's Review on Happy Little Toes 
I remember it like it was yesterday... I was browsing around on facebook and I saw someone post the most adorable pair of shoes.  I "HAD" to run over to take a look.  It was love at first site.  The pictures are  incredible quality and are very well done, but nothing AND I MEAN NOTHING prepared me for the real deal.  But we'll get to that in a minute.  I browsed around on FB, but didn't see anywhere to go buy. So I wrote on a picture (C'mon, we all do it...right?....right?) Within minutes Jen wrote back.  Of course, at that time I had no idea her name, and I felt referring to her as Happy Little Toes might be a bit over the top...I keep hearing Happy Feet music in my head (more on that in a moment too).  SO. I went to their website, and thought I'd order a pair of shoes, but I was having a problem.  There didn't seem to be many in my toddler son's size, so I wrote Jen and asked for some assistance.  Prompt, to the point, friendly and helpful are all words I would use to describe her approach with me. I clicked PAY NOW & didn't look back.  Shipping was super fast, less than a week and I hardly even had those babies out of the box when the 'lil guy was trying to put them on.  I banged the shoe against the wall to make it squeak to show him what it could do. OH-RIGHT- Did I forget to mention these are all Squeaker's ??????  How could I have forgotten!!!  But parents, don't be deterred, they have an easy to remove squeaker that can transform those loud obnoxious shoes on mommy's 'bad days' to quiet lil stompers.  My son bashed his shoe squeaking on every surface he could find, maybe I should have shown him to just put them on instead...   Some pics and a short video clip on YOUTUBE of our 'Lil Guy enjoying his Happy Little Toes:


 Over All impression: Love. Not just like. But LOVE. They are very well made, and the first thing I noticed was the width. Baby feet are chubby and naturally wide, and most of us have the hardest time fitting our kids feet, but not with these! My son has to wear a wide or bigger in shoes- and these fit him with room to spare.  The insides are buttery soft, and the shoe's leather is nice and soft, bending and moving with your baby! 
Pro's & Con's:  It's all pro's for me. I have no complaints, and would love to be a repeat buyer.  The price is right, the shipping was fantastic, and the quality is just as I expected it to be and more.  The only con I could assume for some people is the squeaker, but that's a super easy fix, in fact here is a quick tutorial on how to remove it:
1. Locate the squeakers on the shoes

2. Pull out the squeakers evenly from the shoes

3. Here you go. No more noise! :-)

*To re-enable the squeaker sound, do 3-2-1

If I had known 2 months ago I was going to be writing this, I’d have done absolutely nothing different! 
Hi everyone! Having a good second week of February?  I hope so!  I thought long and hard about what to say, and realized that much of what your going to read here is my rambles of love and adoration for one special woman & her business. I find myself incredibly emotional (with good reason) to write this blog post, and my only hope for this post is that I can clearly show how I really feel.

Vilate.  A household name.  We shortened it to ‘V’ because well.... why not? My husband asks daily  ‘ Did you speak to Vilate today ‘.  He asks how she is doing and how the weather is at her house.  I thought it was just me who adored her, her personality, and her business but it turns out my husband has quite the soft spot for this special lady.  
You see, I met Vilate only mere months ago, and that is thanks to Melissa who told me to jot her a line because she had fantastic diapers. I was Vilate’s newest retailer and had not even had the chance to break in my role when the announcement was being made they were closing. 

Everyone was raving about these diapers.  But what was so special about them? What made them what they are? I.Had.No.Idea. until I saw those diapers for the first time!  And then I.Had.No.Idea until I felt one of those diapers for the first time!  And I.Had.No.Idea until I USED one of those diapers for the first time how special they really were.  I am not making this up!  
Today is the day that marks the end of Nifty Nappy diapers for the time being.  I think we all keep secretly hoping there will be another way ( I know I do), and I think we will just have to wait and see.  You never do know what can happen and I know Vilate loves her diapers and her fans & customers, and retailers to pieces and she wants to do what is right for all of us, her business & her family.  
So today, I want to thank Vilate and her Nifty Nappy’s.  I want to pay tribute to Vilate  & her diapers together with the following words:
Vilate & Nifty Nappy’s Fitteds, you are soo: Soft, Snugly, Kind, Absorbent, Perfect Fit, Creative, Cute, Special, Magical, And everything in between.  
Thank you Vilate for providing support, attention, creativity, compassion, fun & for adding more to everyone’s lives with not only your wonderful personality but with your brilliant MAGICAL diapers!  And THANK YOU to her husband for spending hours every night snapping next to her, and to her children and family, for allowing her the moments to create such magic.

From my house to yours I wish you the best in all your future endeavors and I cannot wait to see what is next in your chapter.

February 7 2011. What? We are already through our first week of February? How can this be!!!!??!!
I don't know how you guys feel, but time is just flying, I feel a deep sense of insecurity quite often lately when I take a moment to notice that another day has slipped by. 

I often find myself lost in deep inner thought, wondering ' Did I make the most of my day today? '.  Of course, its safe to say I don't get lost too long, or else I may never come back to the real world lol.  

Our son is 2.5. An angel of perfection given to us.  All my hopes & dreams lay behind those baby blue's and all I ever want is to make each moment count with him and for him.  So I think my worry stems from the fact that IT IS JUST GOING BY TOO FAST!  

I remember when our 'lil guy was starting solids. Oi ! Want to talk about a mama having issues?  That would be me.  It's not quite what you may be thinking though...or maybe it is.  I made all his baby food, and it was the hardest thing I had to do at that time, I felt like I could not get through it.  My baby was growing up too fast and for some reason I, as a mother had to get over the hurdle of him eating baby food.  Odd? Maybe. Someone out there MUST have had those feelings before?  Somebody? Anybody?  It never changed my level of care, he got to eat all those fun new home-made baby foods and life was grand and he was growing. BUT,  inside a piece of me had to let go and jump that brick wall.  I believe I may have ran head first into it a few times, but after about 2 months I managed to get over and really I have never had that problem again

Why am I writing all this?  Because it is 4:31 am and I have not gone to bed yet, and I am reminiscing. Here is our 'lil guy at a mere 12 hours old.

Beyond Perfect! I remember us being amused seeing this picture after because it appeared like he had a receding hair line, when in fact the flash just took away all the blond hair he had up there.  And yes, he has beautiful strawberry highlights...He got his red hair honestly, and his pasty white complexion even more honestly :)

Moving on..............................
The business side of things is a whirl wind of fun and excitement every day!  I am not a Facebook person.  I used it to keep in touch with family because we are across the country from everyone, and I never dreamed I would be living on it daily with my own business page and fan following.  The support is amazing, I cant say enough how much I appreciate you guys being there, walking through Eebie Baby's first steps.

A wise person once told me ' You can walk through life on your own, or you can walk through life with everyone surrounding you, because either way THEY are what makes this life ' . You can take that for what you will.  I use that phrase as a remembrance to reach out, I also keep it in the back of my mind when there is someone walking in my life with me that needs to walk alone for awhile :) hehe.
