kitty crayons


How adorable are these kitty egg crayons on Etsy?  And perfect for a little hand still learning to grasp.  Their feline shape would go over well in this household, that's for sure!  Plus, per the creator, each kitty egg has the lifespan of 8 standard crayons.  Can't wait until Avery starts to enjoy coloring--I know she'll adore these!

Livie and Luca

Livie and Luca have the absolute cutest collection of shoes for kids that I have ever come across!  They come in an array of beautiful and bright colors and designs range from classic to whimsical.  It was a hard decision to narrow it down to one pair of summer sandals and in the end, Eve's Red Apples won out.  Avery's new sandals are too adorable for words and have durable and flexible soles.  Summer, here we come!

(I'm already thinking of what pair of Livie & Lucas to buy Avery in the fall!)




We discovered a fun way to feed Avery, using little bowls usually used for cooking prep. These particular ones are Pinch Bowls from Sur La Table.  Offered in different colors and made of BPA-free melamine, they come in a set of four.  Certain colors are on sale right now for $3.99.  A great investment for a little price! You can also use these cute bowls to serve dips, sauces and condiments at dinner time.

With a spread of food in front of her, Avery gets the opportunity to choose what she wants to eat and be creative in mixing foods or trying different combinations.  Plus it's an interesting visual way to present food since children tend to eat with their eyes!
