So flipping cute!
Dee started preschool yesterday and was so excited to go to her first day. We owed this excitement to one new item that we added to our household last Saturday – Dee’s Zebra Skip Hop Lunchbox. It’s no secret we’ve been missing in action on the website lately – what with the wedding and the move directly after so I wasn’t able to tell you all about how obsessed Dee has become with zoo animals. In particular the zebra, giraffe, and “lion king”. We went to the Oregon Zoo multiple times in the weeks before our move, as a good bye to my working grounds, as well as to satiate our toddlers constant need to have “mom, dad, dee, zoo” (translation, “mom and dad I want to go to the zoo”).
So as soon as I learned that she was goign to need a lunch box for her new preschool we immediately started looking for cute animal lunchboxes and stumbled across the Skip Hop Zoo Line.
The full line-up of adorable animals
She originally wanted the giraffe but they were sold out. But the zebra has made her so happy and has helped to keep her pumped up for school. In fact, she was so excited for school and using her zebra lunchbox that she carried it all the way to the car, then into the schoo,l and then jigged her way to the front desk to show it off. She keeps asking to pack the zebra lunchbox and go to school! I’ll let you know if he keeps her this pumped up for school as the “honeymoon” period comes to a close.

I thought this was a really cool article by Parents.com. Apps are becoming a major part of our lives and are not just for our phones, but for personal computers, tablets, notebooks, and laptops (I’m sure a few more could be named).
I thought Easy Reader was a cool one, which allows your to browse through ebooks from libraries.
There are a number of really good suggestions from recipe finders, schedule helpers, brain boosters… make sure you check them out.
Parents.com even has one that is perfect for me a jax, Playgrounds, that allows users to look through, rate, and enter playground information so others can learn about them.
Do you have any apps you love using that help you and/or your family?

I thought I’d share with you one of the best buys I thought I made for our little guy. These aden + anais for Target Zooaroo blankets!
I bought the four pack right before he was born and I still use them everyday, night, etc. They are perfect for hot weather climates, great for swaddling. Fold them over into a triangle shape and they are the perfect for swaddling. We used them as burp clothes also (is that gross?).
They kind of act as a sheet now that he is older, which is great again because it’s so hot here in the Arizona. They breathe really well. If you are in need of something that you will use longer than a year - I would suggest these!
