I’m trying to figure out whether to get a tiny digital camera or an Apple® iPhone® (like most mobile phones, it has a built-in camera) because my Motorola® Razr® really isn’t cutting it for photos. Thinking about the iPhone reminded me of how I got completely shown up a by 12 year old a few months back. Sweetie has an iPhone, so I have quite a bit of exposure to it, but his nephew, who does not have an iPhone, knew it so much better than I. So, I’m either an old dinosaur or kids these days really are the tech whizzes…uh, or both…! Joking aside, it is pretty amazing how much kids know about the latest and greatest tech gadgets. I just really don’t remember if that was the case when I was growing up?!?

I just got this adorable photo, and it reminded me of how much I loved having my cousins around when I was little. I think it’s so special to grow up with them around. I have lots of memories of running around and playing all day during the summers. Cousins seem better than siblings because even though they are family, they’re not nearly as annoying! They are a nice balance between being a family member, as much as being just a good friend. How neat that these two were born on the same day!

My newborn, Paulo, is now three weeks old. Sadly, he no longer fits in his newborn-sized clothes. He has now moved on to 0-3 months, and will be wearing size 1 diapers very soon. Although he is still tiny, he has grown so fast. And right before my eyes!

The Joy of Breastfeeding
I have been breastfeeding my newborn for the last two weeks, and one time I was teasing my 4-year old daughter that maybe one day Daddy and I can go see a movie while she stayed home and babysat her little brother. She said,
I don’t think milk will come out of my nickels.”
– Miranda, age 4

What are your Earth Day plans with the kids? Planting a garden, a tree, a windowsill herb “garden” (for those apt./condo dwellers)? Even babies can get involved because remember, babies know dirt! I hope the White House garden that Michelle Obama planted with area kids might get some attention today from kids from another D.C. elementary school. Happy Earth Day!

Near the St. Jude Medical Center in Fullerton is a little boutique called Mother-Baby Boutique inside the St. Jude Wellness Center. I found this store using le•top’s store locator. Unfortunately, when my husband and I got there, the store was closed. But that didn’t stop me from peeking through the windows. The store is similar to gift shops you would find at the lobby of a hospital, but much smaller. They carry only a select few items, but what they sell are premium products, such as the Parent Award Winning Miracle Blanket and specialty clothes for mommy and baby, such as le•top and other designer brands. (I swear I spied le•top baby’s Pretty Primrose receiving blankets rolled up and tied with fancy bows displayed in their wicker baskets!)
This little boutique is located in the perfect area: 1901 Sunnycrest Dr., Mother-Baby Boutique, Fullerton, CA 92835. It’s near the St. Jude Medical Center on Harbor Blvd., where if you were visiting a friend who may have recently given birth, you could pop in the Mother-Baby Boutique and purchase a le•top baby gift for their newborn!
