A Sweet Treat for Baby

And its not loaded with sugar either! We just purchased this Swirlin' Surprise Gumball Machine from Fisher Price and the boys love it. It features 4 fun roll-a-round "gum balls" that roll and spin on the floor. When you pull the lever the machine drops them and plays music and flashes. Our baby boy enjoys catching the balls. Our older three year old loves it too and likes to help the baby put them back in again. It is sure to be a toy that stays around for a while. And even better, Fisher Price has a big line of Roll-A-Round ball toys that are compatible with the balls.

ToysRUs sells it for $22.99 here:

New Johnson's Baby Product

YAY for one bottle of soap for babies! Johnson's just rolled out a new 2-in-1 baby product that is both a bubble bath and a baby wash. It has that same wonderful baby smell and fills the tub with bubbles still. We used it last night during the boys bath and they loved the new bottle. In fact, our 3 year old loves that its BLUE bath soap. The baby however, was just happy to splash and play with the bubbles as usual.

JJ Cole Diaper Bag

Well it was finally time to retire the old diaper bag. It was stained, ripped and torn to pieces. We finally had to put it down. RIP old diaper bag, but we will not miss you.

At least we won't any way because I found a new one that I love. This JJ Cole Collection diaper bag clips onto your stroller or shopping cart. Plus the diaper changing mat has a magnetic clasp, so it folds back together very neatly with little fuss. How cool is that?

I got the polka dot pattern one but more styles can be found here.
