Peek-a WHO? I See Me Book Review

I’ve reviewed another I See Me book a few months ago, you can find that particular review HERE. I had that one made for Baby Bird and decided to go ahead and have this new I See Me book made for her as well.

If you are a regular reader then you know that I do not use my children’s real names on my blog. Therefore, I can’t share actual pictures of the book I had made for her, but I promise…. it’s so adorable. I’m in love with this book. We actually have the original board book, Peek-a Who? by Nina Laden. It was one of Boogie’s favorites as a toddler. So, I was super excited about this personalized book.

On the cover it has “Baby Bird’s (except it’s her real name, duh!) Peek-a Who?” and on the inside cover there is a photograph of my sweet baby and it reads:

We Love You! This book was made especially for Baby Bird who arrived December 8, 2014.

Mommy & Daddy

2015

On each “Peek-a…” page it reads as “Child’s name, Peek-a…”. Baby Bird LOVES it, she gets excited when we say her name and “peek-a….”! The other pages are just like from the original book and a few have some personalized surprises, just as you can see in the cow photo.

At the end of the book, in the original, you’ll see “Peek-a….. you!” and there’s a mirror so you can see YOU! In this personalized version there’s a picture of your child! Ah, I just can’t get over how adorable this book is!

Tools4Wisdom Planner Review

I’m obsessed with planners, it’s sad but true. I am a note taker and a list maker, if we have anything to do or anything to plan… you better believe I’m writing it all down! This planner is fantastic, ugly… but fantastic! I dig the weekly planners where you can keep track of times of appointments and activities. Want to learn more about this great planner? Check out my review video below!

You can purchase one of these HERE (when available):

When the Days Are Long

I heard this quote the other day, “The days are long, but the years are short.” It’s so very very true. Especially on days when the kids are acting up, you can’t get anything done and your stress/anxiety meter has already gone through the roof. So hear me momma’s, listen well…

Your job is important. What you are doing is hard, really really hard. But you persevere. You dive head first into this life of never-ending diapers, mending boo-boo’s, mountains of laundry, crushed cheerios in the carpet, toys scattered EVERYWHERE.

Some of us face long nursing sessions with fussy babies.

Some of us face grumpy toddlers with grumpy attitudes.

Some of us have “threenagers” or even “fournagers”.

Some of us have actual teenagers.

Some of us can’t seem to keep an inch of our homes clean.

Some of us have anxiety and frustrations at any sight of untidiness.

Some of us face postpartum depression and anxiety.

Some of us face prenatal depression and anxiety.

Some of us haven’t showered in days.

Some of us deal with our husbands being deployed for months on end.

Some of us deal with changing shifts and routines that challenge our children.

Some of us have children who have disabilities.

Some of us look in the mirror and wonder where the woman her husband married went.

Momma, you’re going to be okay. Take a deep breath, wipe your tears away and hold your head high. You’ve got this. Know that you are loved. Know that you are being prayed over. I don’t have all the answers, and I fall apart every day… but I’m praying for you.

Timeshel Photo Printing App Review


IMG_1026

 

J and I use our phones to take photographs of our children a LOT. We have a great DSLR, but sometimes it’s just too much to keep up with when we’re already chasing our three children around! iPhones are great for that purpose, but getting prints, especially Instagram prints, is complicated. An average 4×6 print is not the right size for regular phone photos, let alone Instagram shaped photos.

Timeshel is an awesome app that you can use on your iPhone to order prints with a monthly subscription. You can get 10 prints for $5.95 or 30 prints for $14.95, and the quality is phenomenal. I was super excited about the quality of the prints and the vibrancy of the colors.

10 photos come in a cute little envelope like this, it’s compact and perfect to keep those photos in until you are able to display them.

I haven’t decided how I want to display them, but Timeshel gives you a few ideas like these (stock photos):
