Dabbling Duck Boutique Bibs.

Mom says trying to train a baby toddler to self feed is a BIG. FAT. JOKE. 
If you're a mommy then you understand the MESSES all over the kitchen and stained outfits cycling through the washing machine. 
Luckily for us, we know some pretty awesome people who have come up with the PERFECT solution.
The folks over at Dabbling Duck Boutique make these incredible structured bibs.

Our FAVORITE part are the AWESOME sleeves.
Honestly... SLEEVES.ON.A.BIB! 
So genius! 
Mom says, where was Dabbling Duck TWO YEARS ago when she was teaching Hunter how to self feed?

Along with full coverage, these bibs offer a secure fit and are easily tied with a bow to prevent littles from ripping it off.

When the mess is over you can simply toss it in the wash and have it ready to use for the next meal. 

We are so impressed with the overall quality and details of this bib.
The adorable pattern and reversible solid side add to its unique boutique style mommy favorite.
Thanks so much Dabbling Duck for sharing your awesome product.
We are IN LOVE with your bibs.

Be sure to check out Dabbling Duck and grab a bib for your little.
They have so many adorable patterns to chose from.

Making Time Count.

Mom says that time goes so fast these days.
She is always saying "I can't believe its already March!" or "2015! Wow!"
I guess for us little people we just don't understand.
Its the same thing every day.
We wake up.
Mom feeds us.
We get dressed for the day.
Do morning chores.
Have some preschool and book time.
Take a nap.
Run errands.
Play some more.
Wait for Dad to get home. 
Eat dinner.
Play with dad.
Take baths.
Read Books.
Say our prayer.
Go to bed.
Then we do it all over again the next day.
Pretty routine and sometimes not time racing at all.
Being sick with croup for two and a half weeks definitely kept time dragging on for us.
It's amazing how much we did the last month, but crazy how it feels like we did nothing.
Funny how time works huh?

Even with our different schedules, busy or fast, sick or healthy, school or home, rainy days or sunny... it good to find ways to make the time you have count! 
Building memories when we are stuck inside or venturing out to learn new things.
Here's some things Chatter 'N Babble have been up to lately to MAKE TIME COUNT. 

LOTS of Bike Rides.

Making Things.

Getting Handsome HairCuts.

Reading and Practing our Numbers.

Building Forts when we are sick.
Pretending we are in a ROCK BAND with moms pots and pans.
 Finding our Independence.

 Exploring new places.
 Hanging out with our best friend.

Whats your favorite way to MAKE TIME COUNT?
We like to hear how our friends are making time count so leave a comment below!

Rising Moon Adventures Review!

We are so excited to bring to you today, our FIRST Product review with Chatter 'N Babble.
We LOVE when we come across a product that is perfect for the Chatterer (toddler) and Rising Moon Adventures has just the thing.

Olea, owner and creator at Rising Moon Adventures, has created dozens of felt stories perfect for those kids who need a quiet time activity or love to read and learn.
From stories like The Five Little Ducks and Old McDonald's Farm to David and Goliath and Noah's Ark, there stories for each child in your home. 

About The Shop.
Olea, the brilliantly talented mommy behind Rising Moon Adventures, started drawing her first picture book, an ABC Book, when she was pregnant with her oldest child in 1999. 
She said her daughter and son have been the inspiration behind everything she creates. Because of the happiness her stories have brought to her children, she decided to share with others. (Lucky Us)
A fun fact about how she decided on the name of her business was that her name, Olea means "moon" and she has always felt that any kind of reading is an adventure. 
Olea hopes that her felt stories can help provide adventures for you and your children! 

The Product. 
Each of the felt stories are hand drawn, scanned into a computer, colored, printed on to transfer paper and ironed on to felt. 
Because of how they are put together, they are VERY durable and can even be hand-washed with a gentle detergent. 
A total MUST have quality for any family with sticky fingered spilled milk littles like us! 

Each story/song comes with a laminated copy of the story that includes highlighted words when a picture needs to be added to the board. 

Rising Moon Adventures offer a wide range of stories that include fables and fairy tales, songs, nursery rhymes and scripture stories.
They are perfect for traveling in the car, quiet time at church, and quality time with mom and dad. 
These felt stories are also great for inspiring imaginative play after the stories have been read.

Our Thoughts.
In complete toddler honesty there wasn't ANYTHING we didn't like about our Rising Moon Adventure stories.
We were sent Noah's Ark and Cinderella to use and review.
Immediately the Chatterer was drawn to Noah's Ark and all of the animals. 
(Toddler Boys seem to have a thing for animals and making scary animal noises)
Hunter dumped all the pieces out, started telling mom which animal was which and accompanied her acknowledgment with a lion "RAWR", a monkey "OOH OOH AAH" or snake "HISS". 

There is the IMAGINATIVE part these stories are so great to bring out! 
Hunter loved getting to move the pieces around the board and put them where he wanted.
It was great while mom read the story for him to hear things and then find the piece that belonged on the board for that part of the story.
The pictures pieces are colorful and cute that they make it fun to play with.
Hunter grabbed a few animals and at one point made up his own story on the board.
The pieces are so well made that even some squished pieces in busy toddler hands and a piece or two in a baby's mouth, still look great and stick to the board! 
Incredible quality.

The family friendly cost of these stories are great also.
Fits into both piggy bank and mommy budgets! 

Thanks so much to Olea for these awesome felt stories.
You have made a one of kinda, quality product that we love and we will for sure be heading to buy some more real soon.
