My baby is getting so big sometimes. People tell me that he doesn’t look like the typical 3 year old. They say he looks likes he’s closer to 4 or 5. His hair is super curly and it’s also growing day by day. He is bi-racial, half mexican half african-american and he is 100% beautiful. Joshua also speaks both English and Spanish fluently so far, and loves to greet everyone with a “hello” or “hola” no matter where we go.
Enjoy his beautiful new photos! Please leave comments!

It’s only natural for parents to think every scribble or brush stroke their child creates is a masterpiece, but if you are anything like me that means you have stacks of masterpieces you don’t know how to archive for safekeeping. A company called inkubook can help you create a classic bound book of art and photo memories that will give all those creations a worthy home. All you have to do is scan the pages, save them as a jpg, png, or gif file and upload them to the inkubook website.Prices start at $14 for a 20-page softcover book and $25 for a hardcover, but playing around with the book design on the site is free. It also offers a great volume pricing option, which is perfect if you want to make books to give as gifts for the holidays!

Make your tot’s next coloring project 3D! This doll house size cottage is made from recycled materials and is easy to put together for an afternoon of fun and creative energy. Instead of yet another picture on the refrigerator, your tot will be proud to have this displayed in the foyer for all to see when they come to the house for the holidays. You can even get crafty and get fake snow and tiny Christmas lights to be festive. Of course, I am throwing that out there when I, myself, am not at all crafty and would never be able to pull that off. But Auntie can come over and make this into a super fun project! At uncommen goods for only $20.

Loaded weapons and lil ones don’t mix in my opinion. I hope my daughter and son never wrap their hands around a gun. Not now or ever. Growing up in San Francisco in the 80s, it wasn’t all too unusual to see a gun cabinet at a friend’s house or hear a rumor that their father had a gun. My own dad took me target shooting when I was ten. But, times have changed and I’m not keen on my children attending a playdate in a home that had firearms. Why? Because accidents happen and not all people take the proper precautions in storing weapons and as a result, kids die.
We told you about the four-year-old that shot herself when she pulled her grandma’sloaded gun from her purse in Sam’s Club and a father who forced his six-year-old daughter to pose with a pistol. Yesterday, news reports said a child was shot when her drunk father cleaned his firearms. Though the headlines are few and far between, every fatality is worrisome. Are you a gun free family?
