A few new teethers...

So, a blog friend of mine, who also happens to live here in Colorado Springs, and her husband have a few home businesses. Lisa and Don are really awesome people and are all about green, simple living. Lisa has her own website all about cloth diapering. It is a great resource and definitely helped me out when we started out with Melayna. She's not full on cloth, though, like when she is watched we have her in disposables. Anyway, if you ever want to learn more about cloth diapering or you need another great resource at your fingertips, check out her site:

The main reason that I am posting is because of what Don does for a living. He makes wooden toys for children. He is very, very talented at what he does. I love the idea of wooden toys. They are so natural, live on much longer than the plastic stuff (meaning people feel more compelled to keep around and pass down a handmade wooden toy than a mass produced, store bought one), and inspire creative play. I encourage you to check out their site to see the array of goodies Don can make. Also, if you have a project in mind, Don can probably do it. Head over to They even do lay-a-way. I am so getting a kitchen set for the kids later this year. It'll probably be Melayna's 1st birthday gift in October, but I think it'll be great for both kids to play with it together. I can't wait for yummy, imaginative cakes and chicken and soup and everything else!

Anyway, I posted recently about Melayna's emerged tooth. So, yes, there has been lots of drool and gnawing on whatever she can get her hands on. What better time than this to get a set of wooden teethers?! Even though their standard teethers are very cute and simple, I wanted something extra special for my baby girl. So, I asked if Don could make some animals...safari animals. He said yes! Earlier this week I picked them up and met Don, Lisa, and their two beautiful children, Chubbas and Boop (such cute nicknames for such cute kids - and perfect that they named their shop after their kids). They were so nice and wonderful! I am glad to have met them and thankful for all that they do.

Well, here are a few pics of the girlie enjoying her new teethers. Also, if you want to see the teethers alone (Melayna is playing with the giraffe, Don made an elephant and a lion as well), go check out Lisa's post on her blog here.


About This Blog

My name is Mary and I'm a working mom with two beautiful children. I've worked for over seven years at a credit union, currently as an administrative assistant. Last fall, I went back to school and started on a Bachelors in Liberal Arts with an emphasis in Elementary Education.

My hobbies, when I have time, include photography, sewing, photo processing, digital scrapbook, online gaming, reading, role playing games like DnD, and board games. But what I really love doing is just being a mom to my two children, Tristan and Melayna.

Tristan, whois four, is an awesome big brother and such an intelligent little boy. He loves Transformers, animals, Dr. Seuss books, and eating.

Melayna, who is one and a half, has definitely taught her momma patience. Unlike her easy going brother, she is curious and persistent. And if something stands in her way, she will definitely let you know her displeasure. Regardless, she is a sweetheart and daddy's little girl.
