Is there something in the water on the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia set?

Now, actor Glenn Howerton, AKA Dennis Reynold, is also going to be a father. He and his wife, actress Jill Latiano, are expecting their first child later this year. The couple married in September 2009.

“Check out my beautiful preggers wife, y’all,” Howerton Tweeted Sunday from Comic-Con with a link to a photo.

Something from our new pre-fall “Baby Love” collection just might fit the bill for their upcoming arrival. The soft pima cotton footed coverall or pull on cap would keep baby warm and cozy.

Howerton’s fellow cast members Charlie Day and Mary Elizabeth Ellis (due in December), Kaitlin Olson and Rob McElhenney (10 month-old Axel) and David Hornsby (Rickety Cricket) with Emily Deschanel (due this fall) are all adding a first child to their families. I think there may be a daycare on set shortly. 🙂

Our “Petite Duckling” reversible double layer blanket would be perfect for baby on those cool winter nights.

“We’re five months along, and she’s feeling great. We’re excited.” he told PEOPLE Friday night at a party during San Diego’s Comic-Con. “We decided now is the time, and we were fortunate that it happened.”

Co-stars Kaitlin Olson and Rob McElhenney, who became first-time parents to son Axel last September, have been generous with their parenting tips and “honestly, we’re gonna need it!” says Day with a laugh.

1.    What was your inspiration behind opening your children’s clothing store – Sunshine Square? Where did the name come from?
Laurie: Having three children and constantly searching for unique clothing inspired me to have a vision of a store dedicated to great quality boutique fashions. The name Sunshine Square came from a collaboration of friends and family.

2.    Tell us the inside scoop about any special events that you have planned at your store this coming summer and fun deals we can expect.
Laurie: 
We are located on the Historic Downtown Square, so there is something for everyone in the family to enjoy. From special parades, family movie nights, girl’s night out, petting zoos, antique car shows, and Santa Claus, there is always something going on at the square. Of course we just started our annual summer clearance sale to make room for our new fabulous fall styles. We are also getting ready for a big back-to-school sale. I am always thinking of creative sales to offer my customers – so check out our Facebook page and website so you don’t miss out!

3.    What are this season’s latest trends for kid’s clothing? Tell us the 3 “do’s” and 3 “don’ts” in kid’s clothing style.

Sunshine Square's interior features Rabbitmoon's Fall 2011 "Magnolia" collection

Laurie:  This season’s latest trends for kid’s clothing would have to be bold and colorful, fun, ruffles, rompers and tutus.

  • Dress your child in comfy clothes that feel good to move around in.
  • Let your child pick out a few clothing items themselves.
  • Make your child feel good about what they are wearing – make them feel like a princess or prince.
  • Don’t dress your child in restrictive clothing that makes them uncomfortable and fussy.
  • Don’t dress your child older than what they are – cherish every moment they grow up so fast.
  • Don’t judge what your child chooses to wear – they have the right to express themselves.

4.    Tell us…before you “had kids or grandkids, what is one thing you swore you’d never…?” Please share!
Laurie:  
Before I had kids, I swore I would never lick my thumb and wipe my kid’s face clean (also known as a “spit bath”). I did not like it when my mom did it to me and my kids do not like it when I do it to them.

5.    Decatur, Texas sounds exciting! Describe the neighborhood your store is in for us.
Laurie: 
Sunshine Square is located on the Historic Downtown Square. The courthouse sits right in the middle of the square and is made of solid pink granite. It is a beautiful site to see. The square is full of antique shops, clothing stores, gift stores and restaurants. There is shopping and food for everyone.   

6.    What do you feel are the three biggest keys to your success?
Laurie: 
The three biggest keys to my success would have to be:

  • Longevity of the store – Sunshine Square has been in business for 27 years and we see generation after generation shop in the store.
  • Loyal customer base – I always keep an open mind and am receptive to customer suggestions and cater to their needs and wants.
  • Variety and selection – We have a great selection of unique and stylish clothing for our customers to choose from.

7.    If you were a new mom and got stranded on a deserted island – what 5 items could you not live without from your store?
Laurie: 
If I were stranded on a deserted island I could not live without: 

  • Any clothing piece by Le Top or Rabbitmoon – you just can’t beat the softness and durability.
  • An incredibly soft, ultra plush blanket by Little Giraffe – all babies love to snuggle up with this blanket and take a nap.
  • A pair of Mooshu squeaky sandals – the squeaky sound helps me to keep up with my little one.
  • Blossom’s Buddy Blanket by Bunnies by the Bay – plush floppy eared bunny with snuggly soft pink velour security blanket.
  • Kalencom diaper bag to keep all of the great baby items together. 

Their boy's section features Le Top's Fall 2011 "Ready for Takeoff" footed coverall and Rabbitmoon's Fall 2011 "City" stripe coverall

8.    Tell us about a “special” moment that made your day working at your store.
Laurie:
A special moment that made my day was last Christmas when we adopted a family and the kids came into the store and picked out outfits and accessories. The sparkle in their eyes and their smiles lit up the whole store. We all shared a special moment.

9.    Where are the best/essential family hangouts and places to go around your store locations?
Laurie:  
The best family hangout around our location would have to be Sweetie Pies Ribeyes. They have the best steaks around! It is a great family restaurant and the kids love their chicken fingers.

Of course we are only about 30 minutes northwest of the Dallas/Fort Worth area so we are close to everything imaginable – several zoos, water parks, Six Flags, Texas Motor Speedway and much more.

10.    What Le Top or rabbitmoon Spring/Summer 2011 collection is your store’s favorite and why?
Laurie:  
Our favorite collections would have to be the Le Top “Heart’s Delight” for the girls and the Le Top “Puppy Pals” for the boys. We love the bright fun colors and the softness of the fabric. These styles started selling before we could get them unpacked! Of course any Le Top or Rabbitmoon style sells out super fast.

Today’s Darling comes to us from Diane, the owner of The Velveteen Rabbit, in Chesapeake, VA. Her delightful granddaughter, Ryann (9 months-old),  looks happy as a clam (pictured with mom) and peaceful, snoozing in her swing no doubt with visions of flowers and butterflies in her dreams. Wouldn’t you if you were wearing Le Top’s “Flutterbye Butterfly” one-piece romper or the rabbitmoon “Geranium” collection capri jumper.

It’s a boy for Bridesmaids star/actress Maya Rudolph, 38, and director Paul Thomas Anderson. Their new little boy, Jack, will be their 3rd child and joins big sisters Pearl, 5 1/2, and Lucille, 20 months.

While pregnant, Rudolph said she was especially excited to discover the sex of the baby, which she and Anderson chose not to find out prior to the delivery. Jack would be so cute snuggling in a Le Top Baby pre-fall “Woodland Friends” footed coverall.

“The exciting part is not knowing who’s coming,” she explained. “You have to wait nine months for a surprise, but then it’s a good payoff because it really is a surprise.”
