Google Gives Tribute to Our Furry Friends

Cookie Monster, Big Bird, Ernie & Burt, Grover, Elmo, Mr Snuffy all make up some of my most memorable friends growing up. For anyone in their 30s who grew up inviting Sesame Street into their home every morning or evening can relate to how much they were part of our growing up years. Of course Sesame Street has been a friend for all generations after that and through the years has had its share of changes.

On November 10, 1969 Sesame Street premiered their very first episode. Today it has proven to entertain little kids in 125 countries around the world.

Google has been paying tribute to Sesame Street's 40th birthday by having our favorite characters appear in their logo. We saw Big Bird on Wednesday, Cookie Monster on Thursday and Today we have Burt and Ernie.

My favorite character has always been cookie monster so yesterday was my favorite Google page:

Here is my favorite episode of cookie monster:

Here is a link showing some of the other cute Google Doodles that have been used:
Other Google Doodles

I am guessing they will have more between now and Nov 10th :)

Sad Rubber Ducky

To my readers that follow my diaper cakes I apologize for falling short of updating my blog in the last few weeks. Family issues and life took hold of my time and I was unable to keep up my posts. My blog has turned into a place where I can just display all the things I find to be super cute or my creations. Its my way of keeping my life long love for stuffed animals and cute things that as an adult you almost have to find a reason to have them.

Here is another cute commercial. Embarrassing to admit but I actually get all sad to see the rubber ducky sad. What can I say... a kid at heart.

3 Little Piggys Diaper Cake

Now Available on Ebay

One of my daughter's favorite bed time stories is "The 3 Little Pigs". Reading it to her for the 100th millionth time the other night I came up with my next cute diaper cake creation. My 3 Little Pigs Diaper Cake can be adored by anyone who thinks pigs to be absolute cute. I left out the whole wolf idea of course since it would not fit well with the innocent and angelic theme going on in the cake.

The cake is topped with the main plushy piggy toy at the top. He is holding a pink spongy to wash the baby. Around the 2 tier you have a receiving blanket and sitting on top of the 1st tier are his two other piggy buddies holding hands and showcasing a baby bottle. The diaper cake is a 2 tier composed of 56 diapers. Designed in the flare frosted style for anyone who prefers that look.

Most people follow the more modern themes well known as Winnie the Pooh, Sesame Beginnings, and Safari. Why not be a little different and have a theme of an older fairy tale such as our piggys.

With this diaper cake you can huff and a puff a whole bunch of blessings toward baby and mommy.

Naked Bottoms, Bye Bye Diapers

People can have different opinions on what is best for baby. Women battle with so many questions when becoming a first time mother. Should I breast feed or bottle feed, is it ok to not wash your newborn's cloths before using them or even what are the best diapers to use or should I use diapers at all.

Diapers have made life so simple and clean to deal with the poppy mess but contrary to popular beliefs, there are people who believe in more natural ways of potty training their little one. More popular in third world countries due to the lack of accessibility and money, it’s a norm to potty train babies by keeping them naked from very young ages.

Babies that are trained in this way have a higher rate of being trained a lot faster and younger. But the question is who is up to the challenge of putting this to a test.
  • You would start by leaving you baby naked to roam freely at home.
  • Make notes on the routine in his or her bowl movements.
  • While cleaning up the mess you keep insisting to the baby that this needs to be done in the toilet.
  • Walk the baby over to the toilet and show them what to do.
Being consistent is the key to having this technique work.

Though I don’t consider myself a fan of this method, I did know someone who would swear by this technique. You have to be very patient and know that you will encounter messes in the first few days until baby's routine is in place.

Babies seems to learn faster and many are potty trained a lot younger than the ones in diapers.
Big question would really be, are you up for the challenge. I tried it for fun one day to see if I could really hack it. I ended up putting a diaper on my little girl after 6 hours.

The idea of doing away with the expense of diapers might give you a push to try it out yourself.
You baby might learn quickly and help you say bye bye diapers for good.

Diapers Diapers Diapers

One of the biggest questions that newly parents may have is, what is the cost of having a new baby in the house. What new expenses will they have to deal with and is their budget in place for it. For anyone wondering the average expense for diapers alone, I gather a few fun facts that might be interesting to know.
  • In the first year of a baby's life, the parents will spend an average of 560.00 on diapers.
  • A baby can use about 2788 diapers in one year.
  • The average cost for raising a child from birth to 18 is between 125,000 - 250,000. (That is not including college).
  • In the baby's first year a couple can spend roughly 9,000 - 11,000 in all baby essentials such as formula, clothing, diaper, etc.
  • Even though this is a case of every individual, the average toddler leaves the diapers any where between 2.75 to 3.5 years of age.

Giraffe Diaper Cake

Most of the diaper cakes on my blogs have been created using the roll up technique. But this last one I decided to build it with what most diaper cake makers call the frosted fan look. This style seems to be more popular with cakes that have of more of an elegant style. An example of this might be the flower diaper cakes. I don't have a preference on how to make them. It depends on what the client prefers.

But this next cake was made with the flared frosted look.
A cute Carter's Baby Giraffe stands tall on a cake of two layers of 52 diapers. Wrapped around the top, layer giving it a smooth frosted look is a safari receiving blanket.

I have one available cake such as this one for $40.00 plus shipping.
Please email me with any questions on this or any other cake you might be interested in.

Pluffies are my favorite

When creating all my diaper cakes, I usually build each one keeping in mind the preference of the client. But I must say if I was asked what makes the cutest toppings for each diaper cake I have to say I love using the Ty Pluffies Collection and the Child of Mine Carter's Collection.

I started collection the Ty Pluffies when I was pregnant with my daughter. Creating her room theme made me fall in love completely with the Pluffies. They are one of the few lines of stuffed animals that carries the cute faces across almost all of there animals. My little girl ended up making slumbers the bear her very best friend in the whole wide world. She goes every where with him.
Growing up I was probably the only 15 year old with a room full of stuffed animals. I think my love for making baby baskets and diaper cakes today is so I can continue the excuse of having cuddly cute stuffed animals around.
Here is a link to the website that has all the Pluffy Collection. One look at all the faces and you see that the Ty Pluffies Collection ranks high if you are looking for something that will make you go AHHHHHH SO CUTE!!!

Baby Basket

Diaper Cakes are not the only gift that would be beautiful and unique to give. A baby Basket can also be the perfect gift to give a new mommy to be. This basket was built with a baby boy in mind.

The baby basket contains, about 15 diapers, one receiving blanket, 1 wash cloth, 5 bath buddies, all traveling size bath essentials and one cute horse name Whinny from the Pluffies TY collection. Anyone that has followed my blog knows I am a huge fan of either the "TY - Pluffies" or "Carters - Child of Mine" collection. They have always seemed to have the cutest stuffed animals for my baby themes.

Keep in mind that they can be custom made and all cakes can be completely done to someones uniques interest.

Sprinkle Shower?

You almost have to wonder if that title is correct to call it a Sprinkle Shower because sprinkle intends to be just a sprinkle right? Women always wonder if its ethically correct to have a baby shower for the second baby. The answer is yes. But put a small spin to the idea by saying, "We are celebrating a Baby Sprinkle" and your troubles are over. Would you not agree that it could be said you are not having another baby shower, but just a sprinkle celebration instead. Sprinkle alludes to the idea that the mother does not need a shower of gifts but instead just sprinkle her with a few little things that might come handed.

I had a friend send me an invitation to her sprinkle celebration soon and I thought it was so cute to share on my blog. The poem she included in the invitation was perfect for the occasion.

A Baby Sprinkle Celebration

Pins, Diapers, Bottles, Galore,

Mommy and Daddy are having one more,

Big (brother) or (Sister) has plenty to share,

This is only a "sprinkle" to show that we care,

Please join us to celebrate!!!

Cute Bear Diaper Cake

Daddy and Diapers!

I came across this video a few months ago so I am sure it might be familiar to a few readers. But for those that have never seen it, I thought it was a cute little video to give you a laugh.

The question is, do daddy's just use the smell and gross event as an excuse to not change dirty diapers, or are they really so repulsed by the whole event.
