Concern about the environment has made me look at ways to improve our family’s carbon foot print. One of the easiest changes is to stop buying bottled water.
We have a filter to improve the taste of our water and I bought a couple Sigg bottles for me, Jay and Georgia. They are made from aluminum and don’t leach into your beverage, which makes them a great alternative to plastic. I picked our bottles up at http://www.reusablebags.com/
They also carry Klean Kanteen. The Klean Kanteen Stainless Steel Sippy Cup includes a 12 oz stainless steel bottle, a sippy adapter and two Avent sippy spouts. which means you don’t need to worry about your toddler and bisphenol-a, BPA.
Birds of a Feather is the newest Snug-A-Bug Blanket in the Spring 2008 collection.
It comes in sage green or chocolate brown minkee. The print is a modern avocado green with yellow, red, white and pink dove-like birds.
You can get yours at the Snug-A-Bug Blankets Etsy shop.
Another new spring style has hatched at Snug-A-Bug Blankets: Evening in Damask.
The Damask print is a Robin’s-egg blue with chocolate brown print. It is backed with chocolate Minky-Dot and topped with Minky-Diamond.
For the first time time at Snug-A-Bug you can buy it in a gift set with a matching bib. The bib has the same modern damask print and is backed with Chocolate Minkee-Dot and trimmed in brown.
Lately, it seems, every time you turn on the television, open a newspaper or magazine, you hear about another pregnant celebrity.
Julia Roberts began the the trend when she became pregnant with twins in 2004. Since then, stars like Jennifer Garner, Halle Berry, Jennifer Lopez, Minnie Driver, and Jessica Alba, have all started their families. The celebrities who have taken family life to the extreme are Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Their ever expanding family includes 2 boys and 2 girls, and if you believe current celebrity gossip, twins are on the way.
I have wondered if this current celebrity boom has caused a baby boom in society as a whole. We are constantly bombarded with stories about the the lives of celebrities. We emulate their lives by following their trends—clothes, cars, and lifestyles—I think that may include children.
Have you been influenced to have a baby because of the celebrity baby boom?
