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!
For the changing moods of pregnancy…
Keep track of all your pregnancy moods with this Pregnancy Dress Forms note pad. Daddy will appreciate this perfect gift for Mom. The perfect magnetic notepad for an expecting mom.
Text on note pad: Pregnant and feeling… ( ) glamorous ( ) sexy ( ) energetic ( ) exhausted ( ) hungry ( ) other
Note pads measure 3 3/4″ x 9″. Printed on recycled warm white text weight paper.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this product will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and other organizations promoting breast cancer awareness.
This Butterflies & Hiccups Pregnancy Journal, beautifully illustrates the miracle of pregnancy with such grace and charm.

There is plenty of room to record practitioner visits, baby’s development, the physical changes and symptoms as well as special circumstances during pregnancy so you can customize your journal to reflect your unique experiences during this exciting time in your life. There is even room to include a picture each month, if desired!
What’s pregnancy without a baby shower? This baby shower favor is perfect for giving to all of your guests – indulge them with these tiny cases of luxurious hand cream. This delicate “whipped” blend of peonies, jasmine and white lilies is sure to become every girl’s favorite. The perfect size to pop into your pocket or handbag for on-the-go hand replenishment. These luxurious hand creams come personalized with your chosen text, color and design – a “goo goo” baby symbolizing the sweet bundle on it’s way, a onesie to coordinate with the shower details, or a little ducky to show your playful side.
And for the days when the Mom-to-be’s emotions are getting the best of her, why not give her a little something to let her know how special she is. This beautiful bracelet just might do the trick. An assorted arrangement of beads displaying amorous Circle of Love charm, this handmade, fine silver bracelet can be personalized as per your own choice.

The first bell has rung. School has begun. Once all you parents have finished your happy dances, you can get back into routines again yourself. Did you think that you would get away scot free? Sorry about that! It’s time for PTA meetings, running kids to after-school activities, and maybe even a trip to the gym (if you can fit back into your sweats after a long lazy summer). Up and at em. Let’s get the adults back into shape today.
Ok, PTA meetings are something that just has to get scheduled in.No questions asked. And unless your kids are already old enough to stay home on their own, that means a babysitter for you. That’s where this handy little journal comes in. This is the perfect gift for a new mom. Instead of scrawling instructions on the kitchen notepad every time you hire a sitter, jot them down once and for all in “A Parent’s Journal for the Babysitter”. An extremely well-organized diary of all your baby’s routines, special likes, dislikes, and important phone numbers. Works well for older kids too! Comes equipped with tabbed sections and categories. There’s even a separate pad for contact information and schedules. It’s so simple, stylish and useful, this will be one of the most valuable gifts you can give. No more worries about leaving your child to new caregivers or visiting relatives.
Before you hit the first PTA meeting, you might want to hit the gym. Grab your sweats, runners and a water bottle. It is time to work off all those summer cocktails ladies! Everything that you need for the gym will fit into the new Captain Louis tote by Henry Brown. It is a must have in every household. This large stylish canvas bag is an ideal choice whenever you need a bag to carry a lot of stuff; beach towels, ski jackets, weekend toys, riding boots, tennis or gym clothes. With a bit more style than a LL Bean tote, this bag is a nice alternative. The Captain Louis is made of durable all canvas exterior, finished out with handles and a bottom in bourbon barrel brown. Inside is finished with a brown and white stripe and is trimmed with a coordinating velvet ribbon. Each Captain Louis Tote Bag measures an oversized 26 x 17. It is available in 7 colors each with cream colored top stitching. Features a single interior zipper pocket; an easy top tabbed closure.
Along with resuming your trips to the gym, how about getting back into other healthier habits. Drinking water now and again wouldn’t hurt. Make a statement at the gym, park or beach with our Clairebella personalized water bottles. Apart from being stylish and comfortable, they are Eco-friendly as well. Take it any place from gym, park, office or even for shopping girls! It comes in 8”t x 3”w size with 20 oz. The bottle is extremely handy with two lids and a carabiner key clip for attaching it easily. It is BPA free as well. The maximum characters that can be written are 7.
The only thing left is to organize routines for the entire family. Easy, right? Not when Jimmy’s got football practice at 6pm, 3 night a week, Jenna’s got piano twice a week, and Nathan takes both karate and Scouts to fit in. The Wall Calendar from MomAgenda is a brilliant new addition for every busy family. This Wall Calendar’s unique format separates planning space for mom and up to four children so you can manage multiple schedules without multiple headaches. This new design has new colors and more space!
Now the whole family is ready to swing back into routine!

It is beautiful out again! Summer has returned in time for us to enjoy the last bit of it before the kids head back to school. It is a lovely day to be outside, so get out there and enjoy it. Go for a walk, run, ride a bike or do whatever makes you happy, while you soak up some sun. The seasons will change before you know it, so enjoy this before it’s gone.
The last of summer deserves the slower pace of a walk. Make a statement on that walk in your monogrammed custom Converse All Star Chuck Taylors. Dream of a design, and we can embroider it. Nice way to show off your style and favorite colors adding a “kick” to your everyday slip on converse. Featured in Town & Country, these will become one of your favorite shoes. Get ready for loads of compliments “where…did you get those shoes”
If you are going to pick up the pace to a run, don’t forget to take along some water. The temperatures have risen, and so too your need to stay hydrated. Make a statement at the gym, park or beach with our Clairebella personalized water bottles. Apart from being stylish and comfortable, they are Eco-friendly as well. Take it any place from gym, park, office or even for shopping girls! It comes in 8”t x 3”w size with 20 oz. The bottle is extremely handy with two lids and a carabiner key clip for attaching it easily. It is BPA free as well. The maximum characters that can be written are 7.
Here is a bike that your child will never want to get off of. Now you can own the road in this reproduction of a 1936 Sky King Tricycle. A true classic! It will be a collectible for years to come! Designed with child safety standards in mind, it is made of heavy gauge steel, and comes complete with sealed ball bearings in the front wheel, a functional headlight, solid rubber tires and an adjustable coil seat. This model features an adjustable seat with spring for comfort, a working headlight for when playtime runs into dusk, and solid rubber tires for whatever terrain the day may bring.
Do you know what makes most children happy? Some down time to just be kids. Whether that be giggling with friends, going on wild adventures with siblings, or quietly playing in their very own space; and they can do it all from their very own teepee. Modern colors and shapes make our Modern Chic teepee a must for any girls room. Lively and happy, this teepee will become any little girl’s favorite place. Our teepees are made with high end designer, drapery-weighted fabric.
The teepee is extremely lightweight yet durable. Weighing only 9 lbs., it is very easy for a child to move and carry around on their own. The poles are 78″ long and the teepee sits about 5 1/2 feet tall when opened. Conveniently there is NO assembly required. This Teepee is easily put up and then just as easily taken down in only seconds and stores away easily in a corner, a closet or under a bed. Great to bring to your weekend home or visit to Grandma’s house. It’s even perfect for those backyard escapes on lazy summer afternoons, like today…

“We need the tonic of wildness…At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.” ~ Henry David Thoreau, Walden: Or, Life in the Woods
pond life living freshwater blue -personalized wall hanging
Wise words from a book that has inspired millions. ‘Walden’ was published on this date in 1854. It is a book that looks on life and the way we live it. Thoreau lived at Walden Pond for two years, exploring the concepts of self-resilience, simplicity, and the questionability of progress. He sees man as one with nature, and in fact that nature reflects our human emotions. For anyone that has ever gone for a simple walk in the woods, or taken the time to sit and reflect beside a simple pond, I think you can see where he was coming from.

Think about what you do when you step into nature. You slow down. You take more stock of the world around you. Maybe you even breathe a little deeper. More often than not, you are more aware of birds chirping in the trees, the colors of the leaves on the trees, and the fresh smell of the forest that surrounds you.
As you might be able to guess, Babybox.com appreciates all that Mother Nature has to offer.
Everywhere you look on our site, you will find images pulled from nature. We’ve got;

Maybe you should take the time to step out into nature yourself this weekend and see what all the fuss is about.
