I saw the cutest baby bump this week. Pregnant women are just beautiful, aren’t they? They just have a brilliant glow about them that is hard to resist. Now, that doesn’t mean you should go and massage every pregnant woman’s belly that you see. You might get knocked into next week! You see women have these things called hormones that rage pretty good during pregnancy. All the Moms out there are nodding vigorously right about now. While I remember the excitement, I also remember the swollen ankles, aching back, and the time I yelled at my husband because he…
Hmm, perhaps that’s a story for a different time. Anyway, Babybox.com loves pregnant women regardless of their good days and bad. That’s why we have so many items that are specially crafted with them in mind. 13 cheers for round bodies this week!

School is all about the ABC’s and 123′s. Children learn how to read, write, count, calculate, and question the world around them. As parents, we teach our children from the moment they are born though. We help them learn how to talk, walk, and understand the world around them. One of the best ways to start a young life on the right track is to take the opportunity to spend quality time with your children. That means hugging and cuddling them from the time they are born. That looks like slowing down enough to take the time to see the world through their eyes. Sometimes, that is getting down on the ground to inspect insects with them. Sometimes, that is boosting them up to the sky, so that they can better reach the stars. Sometimes, that is cuddling into a comfy chair to read stories and connect over a good book. It is called love, and it comes in so many ways. When we teach children how to love, we give them a bigger piece of the world to grow and learn in. There is no better gift.
At Babybox.com, we appreciate the bond between parent and child. We are all about quality time and the joy that it brings. That is one of the reasons why we offer our high-quality products, so that you can easily and comfortably spend more time with your children while they are young and keen to soak it all in. You have the opportunity to give your child a head start on the more formal schooling they will receive later when you teach simple color recognition, counting, vocabulary, and more over fun one-on-one games, during mealtimes, in the bathtub, and when getting ready for bed.
Think what your child can learn during any of those moment. At bathtime, they can count their fingers, toes, arms, and legs. At mealtime, they are introduced to the senses of taste, touch, smell, sight and even hearing (have you ever heard a fajita being made? sizzle!). At bedtime, grab a book and inspire an imagination that soars when you flip through the pages of a book together.
If you think about it, by the time your child reaches school age, they have learned a vast amount of knowledge already. Even if reading and writing haven’t been completely mastered yet, I bet you have taught your child enough to make it an easy jump. Most preschoolers recognize stop signs, whether it be by color, shape, or the words upon the sign. The concept of history might still be a vague notion, but children certainly can grasp dinner time, bathtime and bedtime. Politics is a far cry to understand for the young learner, but children have already been introduced to some of its concepts, like sharing, listening to others, taking turns, compromising, and voting (think about when a group of kids has to agree on which movie to watch, game to play, or snack to eat). Sometimes I think our politicians could learn something from kindergarteners!
Regardless, learning is something that we begin upon birth and follows us til death. When you take the time to be your child’s first teacher, you set them on a path for quality lifelong learning. Think about that. And think about what you learn from your children along the way too.

It has been a dreary week.The weather just refuses to warm up and wind and rain have lashed wide swathes of the Eastern US into Canada. With the weekend upon us all I want to do is curl up and either stay in bed all weekend long, or maybe curl up with a good book in a comfy chair by the fire. What do you have planned? If you are about the same as me, let me tempt you to stay in with some of our luxurious comforts that you just shouldn’t be without…
The Comforts of Home
This little guy has got the right idea! I want to snuggle in there with him in the Classic weight Monarch comforter by Ogallala. It screams true comfortable. The Monarch classic is known for moderation, not too light and not too heavy. Filled with soft Hypodown 700, the Monarch is made of long staple cotton sateen bordered by a satin piping that brings you warmth anywhere you need to relax. Its classic box design is baffled for consistent appearance and warmth. 300 thread count cotton is a gentle nest that caresses a sleeping body from dusk until dawn. Available in twin, full, queen, super queen, king and super king sizes. For additional comfort add a Hypodown pillow.
If you do find yourself inspired to crawl out of bed, I know exactly where you are heading; the sofa! And who can blame you if this exquisite sofa is in your home. The Eloise Sofa by Art for Kids is a pretty, elegant and comfortable seating option for your room. The exquisitely crafted piece features a fine design with the option of many wood finishes. Add your own fabric to coordinate perfectly with your room decor and create a truly unique seating. Perfect for snuggling into on gray days.
If you make it to the sofa, then you will need a blanket to keep the damp out. This super plush and super soft throw blanket in 100% cotton features herringbone pattern and is elegant and cozy. We love these and they are some of the softest throws in the softest colors. Cotton, when brushed, undergoes a transformation that gives it a plush, alluring texture this side of heaven. This throw blends soft color with cream in a herringbone weave and finishes it with a twisted, natural fringe. Cozy up on the couch in style and in sophistication.
Now what could make it any better? Why snuggling with baby of course! All you need to add is a little soft music and a good book and you are set. The lullabies & daydreams: book for mom-music for baby is the perfect choice! It is a gift that both mom and baby can enjoy. The text is a treasury of reassuring advice and selected tidbits of wisdom for a new mom. The music CD contains some of the world’s most beloved lullabies performed by the renowned flutist James Gallway, and others.
Have a great weekend Babybox.com fans!

When was the last time you talked to your siblings? How long ago did you see them last? Did you share a laugh, tear or hug? While you may have many friends in your lifetime, your siblings are the only ones that are there through it all. So often they are your first friends and quite possibly your best. They are there through the good times and bad in your formative years and that bond is a hard one to shake. So often it is a bond that endures the test of time and life. It is a bond that should be celebrated and today is the perfect day to do that. April 10th is National Sibling Day.
So today Babybox.com recognizes brothers and sisters and the bond that exists between them. We know how special our siblings are. They are usually the love behind our smiles, the strength in our convictions and the understanding in our compassion. Without siblings, the world would be a harder place to live in. Babybox.com thinks that the bond between siblings should be celebrated and that bond starts as soon as a second child is born. It starts at the very beginning and only grows from there.
National Sibling Day
We all know it takes a little adjustment for children, when a new baby is announced. An initial feeling of worry on behalf of the first child might exist and that feeling should be addressed. They are not being replaced and they need to know that. Siblings need to be celebrated too when the new baby arrives. What better gift than a sibling tee shirt. “Big Brother” or “Bib Sister” will feel important too with a personalized tee shirt embroidered just for him!…or matching shirts for baby and brother make an adorable pair! Each tee shirt comes wrapped and tied with a bow.
Here is another way to reduce any anxiety a new big brother might have when you are expecting a new baby. Get ready for the new Big Brother with this delightful, personalized keepsake book celebrating the transition from only child — or younger sibling — to Big Brother. This personalized photo journal addresses his excitement, anxiety, and limited understanding of what it means to become an older sibling. The journal starts with Mom’s pregnancy and continues right through to the birth of the new baby. The fun and easy fill-in-the-blanks format allows for fast customization of the entire story with photos from your child’s life, making them the star of the book! Long after helping your child adjust and prepare for this milestone transition, our keepsake photo journal will have a permanent place next to his much-loved baby book.
And that ultimate in having sibling has got to be in the incidence of twins! Built in siblings and best friends all in one go. A Twins Personalized Birth Tile is a wonderful way to commemorate their arrival.The hand painted and personalized 6″ x 8″ tile is individually crafted with the babies’ name and other birth information. This original artwork is heat-sealed into each tile, ensuring a high-quality finish, and a long lasting keepsake. The tile comes with coordinating ribbon. Makes a great gift!
Of course sometimes having a sibling means compromise, like sharing a room. What girls would complain about that with these beautiful lily rae twin double corner platform beds? The Relics Furniture Lily Rae Double Twin Corner beds are the newest addition to their beadboard line of furniture, inspired by traditional cottage styling. The beds are designed for a mattress and box spring combination and can be hand painted in your choice of one the many Benjamin Moore colors listed in the options. We also offer the option of finishing this item with ANY Benjamin Moore paint color, for an additional charge. This item can only be shipped within the 48 contiguous states. Made in the USA. This is a classic bed which will work in any room.
How will you reconnect with your siblings today?

It’s Good Friday; the start of the Easter weekend holidays for people of the Christian faith. The celebration is a reminder of the ultimate sacrifice that Jesus Chris made. He was arrested, tried and hung on a cross to die by the Romans of the day. Christians believe that he died for their sins, so that they may be given a new life. He is seen as the Son of God and the proof of that is in his resurrection three days later on Easter Sunday. It concludes the forty day fast of Lent, incorporates Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and of course Easter Sunday. Many attend church to listen to the Gospels, get baptized (newly converted), and receive the Eucharist (High Communion). Nowadays, a newer custom of collecting Easter eggs left out by the Easter Bunny has children looking forward to the holidays with glee. Regardless of how you celebrate, this weekend is a special one, and Babybox.com is excited too.

Happy World Thinking Day!
I know what you are thinking, and no, I did not make up this holiday. The good folks at the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts came up with World Thinking Day way back in 1926. I think it is not a bad idea either. On February 22nd every year, girl guides and scouts across the world dedicate themselves to thinking about their fellow girl guides and scouts, fundraising for World Thinking Day, plus most importantly, take part in fun and educational activities based on the present year’s theme. In 2013, the themes of World Thinking Day are “Together we can save children’s lives” and “Every mother’s life and health is precious“. Babybox.com is all about children, plus we cater to the mothers that raise them, so it is only natural that we tip our hat to these all important issues that affect us all.

As the January doldrums set in, my eye drifts towards images of tropical getaways. Hmm, there has to be someplace warmer than here that I can escape to.
