Stop by the Jefferson City Jaycees Fairgrounds for Trunk or Treat on Saturday, October 25, 2014 from 5 – 8 p.m.! Admission is only $1 and benefits Operation T.O.Y.S. There will be games, activities, and lots of goodies! A great alternative to trick-or-treating!




Who’s excited for a new giveaway! I was so excited to get to check out this awesome all-in-one outfit that doesn’t have snaps, zippers, elastic, or buttons that can pinch and scratch.  Diaper changes are super-simple — just pull down the back panel. Watch this video to see exactly how it works.

My little guy was a big fan — I couldn’t keep him still. I think that he loved the feel of the super-soft organic cotton/bamboo/spandex. Probably because they’re also  breathable, comfortable, and quite possibly the next best thing to being naked. And you know as well as I do, babies love to be naked. Now if we could just get Baby Wit to make a WonderSuit for moms!!

These WonderSuits are made in Portland from sustainable fabrics. I just threw our WonderSuit in the wash and hung it dry.
