Baby Blog Swap III Partners

  
Sorry! 
I will be e-mailing out partners for the Baby Blog Swap III tonight! I am behind and totally forgot to do it on Friday....{shame on me!}

:)

Busy Bees!

   
Why is summer so much harder to stay caught up?!

We have been out doing work on our 'pond/waterfall' this weekend. The one the hubby was so excited to re-do, that I posted about here. With the daycare, licensing says we have to get rid of it or put a fence around it. {Lot of work to do both}
The hubby isn't very happy, he was so excited to re-do it and make it look good. Now, we have to level the whole thing and put grass over it all.

This weekend we...
Fixed up our 2 season porch and got a lot of work done on that {it still needs a ton more},
we celebrated the hubby's 30th birthday with friends and family, we celebrated my sister-in-laws 26th birthday, we cleaned, we organized, we went to our weekend store {Home Depot} and we tried to relax when possible.

I have tons of pictures to upload, some more giveaways to offer all of you and some 'good reading' posts. 

 My weeks are crazy these days....here is a preview into my week...
Monday- work till 5pm, softball from 8:15-10:15
Tuesday- work till 5pm, Chase's baseball from 5:30-6:30, remove rocks out of the pond
Wednesday- work till 5pm, music in Plymouth from 5:30-10:30
Thursday- work till 5pm, softball from 6:15-8:15

Abby's New Stage

   
Abby's always been a little shy, but never like this. 
She's always been a little weary of strangers, but never of family.
She's always been clingy to us, but never this much.

Please help!

{Tell me this is just a stage she's going through}

 I can't even go to a relative's birthday and not have her on me like a leach.
I am not a fan of my kids hanging on me, like I am a jungle gym, when we are in public. It is getting out of control with Abby. Her new thing is to not talk to anyone, besides our immediate family {sometimes not even them} To be extremely shy and then when someone talks to her, she comes and clings onto me for dear life.

What is this all about?!

Why now, when she is almost 3? She has separation anxiety pretty bad as an infant...but she has always been pretty outgoing, once she takes 5 minutes to get to know you. {then you can't get her to be quiet}

Has anyone else run into this? If so, please help, what can I do?
I usually just try and ignore it {and pretend she isn't hanging onto me and ignoring everyone around her}
I am very outgoing, my hubby is outgoing and for the most part, so is Chase! {not sure where this is coming from}

::

On another note! 
 
I will be drawing partners for the BABY BLOG SWAP III TONIGHT!

Please e-mail me at Koxborough@yahoo.com, if you are interested in participating in this swap.

HAPPY FRIDAY!

Baby Flair Boutique Review & Giveaway!

   
 What little girl would not LOVE these adorable hair accessories?! They are gorgeous in my book and definitely one of a kind! These headbands are made so well and so much care is put into each one. I am so very impressed with them and guess what....My hubby even likes them. {that is a huge step}
http://ny-image0.etsy.com/il_fullxfull.149296200.jpg http://ny-image1.etsy.com/il_fullxfull.151507005.jpg

Alyson over at Baby Flair was gracious enough to send me three of her headbands to review. I am addicted to her shop and can't wait to order more.
She puts so much detail into her headbands and the flowers/decorations are attached to the stretchy headband and backed with a piece of felt, so it is soft on your little girls head.Makenzie has her fair share of headbands, but these are my favorite!! They aren't {obnoxiously big} as my hubby would say...they are perfect!
Here are the three headbands I got, that I just LOVE...
  
I took Makenzie out to the grocery store, wearing the brown double flower headband (the black and white picture) and three people with little girls stopped me and asked me where I got it. WOW! What a compliment to Alyson!
 
Alyson has accessories to match just about any outfit and style. They are so hard to choose from, but head on over to Baby Flair and come back to let me know what you would choose to get with a $35 gift certificate. {That's right...Alyson is giving away a $35 gift certificate to one of you!}

 She has many headbands, so feel free to let me know more than one item!
