Jack and Lily Shoe Review and GIVEAWAY!

HAPPY NEW YEARS EVE!! Well, it is Noon, EST and Random.org selected Entry #5. CONGRATULATIONS TO Debra from UnrealBaby for her entry. I will email her now and she has 24 hours to get back to me. Keep your eyes out for my next contest from Baby Legs!!

Merry Christmas Everyone! I am beyond ecstatic to tell you that Jack and Lily is offering my readers a chance to win a pair of Jack and Lily shoes from their new "My Shoes" line!

Rob, from Jack and Lily's was nice enough to send me a pair of the most gorgeous leather baby shoes to review. When I opened the package I screamed because I had never seen little shoes so perfectly nestled in their own adorable box before.

The leather is soft and the soles are very flexible, which is important for Dexter's growing feet! The stitching is tight and amazingly bright green (did I happen to mention that lime green is my favorite color!!??)

"Inspired by a baby's sense of touch, Jack and Lily's specialty footwear is the next step in designer baby shoes. Made from the finest 'Lamb Touch' leather, our handcrafted slip-ons are the softest baby shoe available today. Specially designed to encourage a baby's development, our beautifully appointed, soft-soled shoes invite babies to discover, touch and smile. Playing with our new 'Soft Touch' patches or taking first steps, babies are well heeled to explore the world with our naturally durable, non-slip shoes. With more than 70 combinations of contemporary colors and distinct styles to choose from, Jack and Lily's baby shoes are always the perfect complement to any outfit."

I immediately ran over and grabbed Dexter so he could sport these amazing shoes! Look how perfect they look with his t-shirt and jeans!

You can't tell me that this is the cutest little leg you have ever seen?!

It wasn't long before Dexter was up and walking around in his new leather kicks. They are light enough that they certainly did not impact his walking at all. I ordered these shoes in a 6-12 months and they are a little roomy for the boy. He takes after his dad and has small feet but these, I suspect will fit him for a long time.

Not only are these shoes completely suh-weet but this summer Dexter will be walking in the sand and leaving a footprint behind. I can't wait to see how this looks in the sand!

Do you want the chance to win the most perfect baby shoes from Jack and Lily's My Shoes line?! Well, all you need to do is head over to Jack and Lily's and check out their adorable shoes. Come back here and tell me your favorite shoes from their My Shoes line. Please also tell me what size you would like.

Dada Glasses

Dexter LOVES to play with glasses, especially his Dada's glasses. My husband always says, "No, those are Dada's glasses!" Well, what would you know, yesterday Dexter went for his Daddy's glasses and he said "Dada glasses!" OMG!! How is that even possible? He isn't even 10 months old yet! Well, I got it on video for the whole world to hear!!

Dexter's Surgery

Dexter is recuperating just fine following his hernia surgery this past Thursday. He is in a little bit of pain and last night was very difficult. The anesthesia gave him really bad diaper rash (common along with diarrhea in babies) so diaper changes are no fun too. I am sure he will be happy when he is allowed to take baths again. That part is probably the roughest for him :(

Here is a cute little picture of my little man still coming around after the ordeal:

SEE KAI RUN Review and Giveaway!!! NOW OVER!!!

Congratulations to Carrie (M's Mommy) who wrote:

M's Mommy said...
I love the Avery and Melody shoes - how adorable! Thanks -
Carrie, crt4book[at]yahoo[dot]com

You have 24 hours to get back to me to claim your prize! Thank you to all who entered!

In 2004, See Kai Run started selling it's shoes to boutiques and people were ecstatic! They were impressed with these shoes that were bold, hip and fun with a twist of urban sensibility. See Kai Run has taken off and is now adored by parents all around the world! See Kai Run has recently paired up with SoleforSouls and has since donated over 8000 pairs of shoes to children in need. From now until the end of December, for ever pair of shoes that See Kai Run sells, they will also donate a pair to SolesforSouls! How is that for generous?!

Thank you to See Kai Run for sending me a pair of Dominic Boots to review. They arrived via UPS and I immediately ripped the box open only to discover the cutest little shoe box inside.

I carefully unwrapped the nicest See Kai Run tissue paper and found Dexter's boots inside. Let me tell you right now how GORGEOUS these boots are!

When I pulled them out of the shoe box I immediately noticed how soft they are. They are made from butter-soft sheepskin leather. They smell so new and fresh (that won't last long with a toddler wearing them!) I grabbed them and bent them in half and they are so flexible, due to the rubber soles that they use ( that are healthy for developing feet but sturdy enough for outdoor play!) I was also impressed with the tight stitching all around the boot. It reassures me that these boots will be lasting Dexter a very long time (or until he outgrows them!)

The next thing I did was unzip/zip them several times and, to my surprise, they didn't catch once. All of us with little ones know that they are constantly playing with zippers/laces etc. When I finally allowed Dexter to put them on, he bent down and started chewing on them (of course). He then got up and trampled around the house for a while before he sat down and tried to yank them off. To my delight, he couldn't remove them himself!! I am going to wait until I treat them properly before I allow him to wear them outside.

How would you like to win a pair of See Kai Run shoes for your little one?! Well, See Kai Run was generous enough to offer
my readers a pair of their very own SKR shoes! All you have to do is head over to their website http://www.seekairun.com and pick two pair that you would like to win (just in case they are all sold out of your first pick). You can choose from the Smaller and See Kai Run lines. Come back here and enter your top two choices in the comment section of this post for your chance to win. Also, enter your name and email address so I can notify the winner! I will draw the winner at NOON EST on December 17th, 2008. The winner will be selected by random.org from all the eligible entries.

Product Review-Boogie Wipes

Thank you to Molly from Boogie Wipes for sending me two packages of Boogie Wipes to review! I opened the box and discovered a package of 30 Grape Scented Boogie Wipes and a package of unscented Boogie Wipes.

These could not have come at a better time. Little man has been teething and has an ear infection. You know what that means.....SEVERE BOOGER NOSE! Poor baby. He is miserable. He has even given up trying to fight the aspirator because he knows it helps him to breathe. Here are a couple of pictures of is poor nose.

Well, after I took these pictures, I opened the package of Grape Boogie Wipes and I noticed that it not only smelled nice but it was perfectly moist. The wipe itself was huge. I tried to rip it in half because I could use it twice but they are really thick and strong! I approached Dexter and I held the wipe so he could smell it (the best he could with his gucky nose!) and he smiled. I knew I was in. I took it and swiped it under his poor nose. One swipe is all it took to get rid of a lot of mucus! I was thoroughly impressed. And to think I had been using Kleenex and wet washcloths. No wonder his nose was so raw :(

I used these wipes all day and I am a proud to announce that Dexter's nose is no longer a big, red, raw mess. It is starting to heal thanks to the Aloe and Vitamins in the Boogie Wipes. These wipes rock! You certainly can't beat getting them for $3.99 at Amazon.

I have also seen them at Rite Aid and Walmart. I know one thing for sure. MY HOUSE WILL NEVER BE WITHOUT A PACKAGE OF BOOGIE WIPES and I will start to give these to all the baby showers I attend from now on. This is definitely a staple!!


Today is the day that I am kicking off a new theme here at Dexter's Super Savvy Mommy-Funny Picture Monday! I have a real good one for you!

My sister-in-law told me that her cousin (who loves Jessica Simpson) stood in line for over 3 hours to meet her recently. Here is my Funny Picture for Monday, December 8th, 2008!

Notebooks.com's Magic Giveaway with HP and Microsoft

Here is a picture of my Dad with his only grand child, my son DEXTER!! I Love this picture!

Things have not been going well for me lately, at all! I have seen much brighter days. There is hope and with it I find myself really wanting to win a beautiful set of 4 computers from HP! They were generous enough to sponsor 50 blog contests. My father is the most deserving of a new computer and I really pray that I can give him one real soon!!!!

So, at Dexter's 9 month check up we discovered that he is 19.1 lbs (25th percentile), 30 1/4" long (95th percentile) and has a head circumference of 45.2 cm (50th percentile).

He also has an ear infection. She gave us antibiotics because he needs to be better before his surgery next week!!
