1. Best Unicorn Book

My daughter has been spell-bound by unicorns lately. It all started with a new book. I have to say this is now one of my favorite reads! It’s not too long and the story is heartwarming. Since purple is also a favorite color in our house, this book makes the best read list everyday. Uni the Unicorn is all around town but just click this link and you can snag it from Amazon.

2. Unicorn Photo Shoot

Yep, this is all the rage! Take a pony shoot and transform it into something mystical. Many photographers are now offering this type of session in the spring and summer with live ponies. My daughter just had her shoot with Hannah Hilliard Photography outside of Indianapolis, but don’t worry…another session is right around the corner, and there are still a few available spots! Oh, did I mention that my styling business, The Borrowed Boutique, is offering wardrobe options??? Shoot me a message if you’re interested.

Childhood passes too quickly!! I love that my little one still believes in make-believe. Today Tinkerbell landed on her head and Peter Pan flew through the window! A purple unicorn and a pink hippo decided to join us for lunch! Embrace it! Before you know it the fairies will have flown the coop.

Ayla’s Library Just Keeps Growing!

IMG_6026This week’s trip to the book store was a fantastic success! Ayla sorted through EVERY last shelf just to make sure she knew all of her literary options.We left with four new favorites! I wasn’t familiar with three of the books, but they are on the MUST PURCHASE LIST! One of them is actually the best children’s book that I have read in years.

1. Snuggle the Baby by Sara Gillingham 

This interactive board book is just too sweet! I am a sucker for all things vintage, and the graphics in this book are vintage at its cutest. Not only does this book have flap and fold components, it also allows the child to feed the baby (bottle not breast, but trying to incorporate breast-feeding might have been a little tricky), change the diaper, swaddle the baby, and even tuck the baby into bed. Ayla loves it! IMG_6009

 

IMG_60042. Alpha Block by Christopher Franceschelli

This thick board book is great for teaching your child the alphabet. Each letter is presented as a die-cut and paired with an adjacent picture and word. The pictures are colorful and again have something of a retro vibe. It is literally a “block” of the alphabet.

3. What Do You Do With An IDEA? by Kobi Yamada 

This book is my absolute new FAVORITE!! I am a fan of The Giving Tree and other sentimental and inspirational stories. This book makes the cut. This story book is great for kids of all ages, not just tiny tots. The illustrations are sweet and the story is inspiring. I wish I had come up with this IDEA for a story! IMG_6136

Check these out and let me know what you think! Oh, and if you are dying to know the 4th book…it was Olivia (as shown in the top picture:) It is definitely another winner! I have included hyperlinks in the titles of each of these books if you would like to purchase them on Amazon.
