Flip-flop socks

As Vera hasn't started walking yet, we usually let her go barefooted when we go out and put on socks for her when it gets cold. Less restrictive for the tiny feet in this hot weather. Just found these flip-flop socks and thought they were ultra cool! Available at redenvelope.com.

The Balmoral Pram

I was wondering just the other day whether they still made these kinds of prams. Oh yes, they do at Silver Cross! Once the most sought after carriages for Europe's royals and aristocrats, this British company has been building its reputation as the premiere carriage / pram company for over a hundred years. With its steel bodied frame, polished chrome chassis and hand-spoked wheels, this vintage pram (called the Balmarol pram) is designed to transport your baby in luxury It is a celebrity favorite with Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna, Julia Roberts, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Tori Spelling.

Smurfs - Baby Smurf Is Missing

Smurfs used to be the reason why I woke up on Sunday mornings. I like that they all have different personalities, although I realise now that there are a lot of generic smurfs who just run a round and do what they are told. My heart goes out to the smurf that always got kicked out of the community for expressing himself too much.

Janine Stow Photography

Classic and timeless photography by Janine Stow. Janine likes to work with families in the comfort of their surroundings, rather than a studio, as children tend to be more relaxed in a familiar environment. She also feels that the photographs will be more personal if they have a familiar background such as a home which would serve as a reminder of your children at that place and time in their lives. Do check out Janine's website for more wonderful pictures. A beautiful way to capture the memories of your child.

Father's Day - June 17

With Father's Day round this weekend, thought I would do a post for Daddies since it is always so difficult to get them a gift. I recently found out about The GoodFather gift CD-ROM for new and expecting dads and thought it was so clever and humourous. The GoodFather is a CD in a custom gift box that teaches new dads hundreds of baby skills through a fun parody of the mobster epic The GodFather. The topics were created for men by experienced dads and grandfathers, and edited by licensed nurses to ensure the material is medically sound. (yes, this is extremely important). Sold for $29.95 at Drmoz

I came across this beautiful photography website called Footprints today. Their photographic style is honest, natural and elegant, celebrating life, love and family. Ph0tographer Erin Drallos started professional photography in 1997. She calls her business FOOTPRINTS to remind herself that when she went through the most difficult time in her life, with the lost of her best friend and mother, she now looks back and sees only one set of footprints... "And I knew HE carried me."
