There’s just some baby things you never want to miss out on getting, baby blocks are one of them. There just so adorable and precious, they remind you of childhood. I knew that I wanted wood blocks even more Calvin was a thought. So I was supper excited when @smilingtreetoys ( https://www.instagram.com/smilingtreetoys) sent us over these custom-made blocks for Calvin. Their just so precious. He loves playing with them and even loves it more when I stack them up so he can push them down. He loves building stuff. Each block even has a letter of his name, so sweet is that! These blocks are beautifully made and add the perfect touch to any kids room. I uses them as decor for Calvin’s birthday party.
They have so many custom-made pieces for you to choose from, teethers, puzzles, ornaments, wood trucks, building blocks and so much more. If your looking for the perfect shop to buy these things, defiantly get them from their company!
@bookroo_love has sent us another box of books and we are loving it. The month of September introduced us to the books “ Skip Hop: My backpack”, “Arf! Buzz! Cluck! A Rather Noisy Alphabet” and ” Peekaboo! On the farm”. Our favorite is “Peekaboo! On the Farm”, Calvin loves playing peekaboo with us. It’s our go to game when we want to keep him entertained. #parenting The animals are hiding their faces and when you open the flap… PEEKABOO! it’s a CHICKEN! ha! I love that each book is filled with colors and very detailed. I enjoyed that two of this months books had surprise flaps, those kinds of books were my favorite growing up because you never knew what you find under it.

Now this, this is a place you won’t ever regret visiting but will regret missing. This weekend we had a family date at one of the most popular pop art exhibits in the city, @colorfactory.
Here’s some info about the exhibit: ( info from their website)
Color Factory is a collaborative interactive exhibit that debuted in San Francisco in August 2017. What was intended as a month-long run unexpectedly flourished as a celebration of color and creativity that lasted for another eight sold-out months.
In August 2018, a whole new palette came to New York City in SoHo’s Hudson Square neighborhood. In 20,000 square feet, we feature brand-new participatory installations of colors we’ve collected around the city— hues that invite curiosity, discovery and play. Some of our favorite artists, creatives, designers, and makers are teaming up with us to tell their unique color stories and engage all of your senses in unexpected ways.
Ruben and I were amazed at how amazing this exhibit was, it was filled with color, treats, fun rooms to interact with each other and lots of cameras to take pictures together. I think it’s been a while since we went to a place where all three of us enjoyed each other and had fun. This place was super family friendly and allowed Calvin to explore. I love taking him to places that help his sensory development.
These are a few things you should know about this exhibit;
The tickets are $38 each… yes, I know it seems like a lot but trust me it was worth every dollar. Also, if you have children age two and under, they’re free.
Once your tour beings, you are taken to a room to watch an intro video and then taken to another room to register on an iPad. The reason for this is because you are given a card that will be used in order to store any pictures you take around the exhibit.
Which leads me to the MOST amazing part about this exhibit, each room is like a Photo Booth! How dope is that! We loved the fact that all three of us got to take pictures, and Ruben didn’t have to be my camera guy for the day! lol
You also get so many treats, like pins, macaroons, ice cream, a visitors gift and a color factory map that tells you about so many art designs around the city.
And they have the largest ball pit area in the city!
This is my favorite pop art exhibit by far, so glad we made this a family date. If you’re looking for something to do in the next two weeks do yourself a favor and check out the @colorfactory! You can get tickets till October. 14th.
Growing up reading was not my thing, I didn’t like it nor was I good at it. I remember that my teachers would only get me to read if I would listen to the audio version of the book. Those were fun memories. Anyways, while I was pregnant I was already buying my favorite childhood books for Calvin. The Giving Tree was my first on the list! Guys, is it just me or does that book not make you cry! I can never get to the end without sobbing!
@bookroo_love is a subscription for kids that helps them fall in love with reading by combining the excitement of opening gifts with discovery of new, treasured books. I really enjoyed opening each book myself, I can’t imagine a kid. So much excitement.
Bookroo offers three types of boxes, board book ( ages 0-3), picture books ( ages 2-6) and chapter books (ages 7-10). Every month is a new surprise for books! I personally loved each one of these books and Calvin loved the touch feel book. I’m excited to make these three books part of our reading time. Each one is so unique. The ” Planes, Trains and Animobiles ” book teaches children about different animals and different ways of transportation, it’s funny and cute. Calvin loves when I add noise effects to each new animal we meet. The ” Eyes” book is filled with vivid colors, each page displays the detail in each animal’s eyes. Great book to teach babies to identify their eyes. My favorite of all is the touch and feel ” Animals” book. Calvin loves touching the different textures inside the book, this is also his first touch and feel book. Anyways, did you notice a pattern in each book? yes, they were all about animals. Every month you can look forward to a new theme. I truly believe this box is worth the subscription, I hope that Calvin loves reading as much as I do and this box will bring that excitement for reading.
