- Oribel understands that as parents, we want products that grow with our child. The Portaplay does just that. From an Activity Center that can be used starting at 5 months, you can also transform it into a table as your baby grows. ❤️ Swipe left to see it transform 😊 #oribelph
- What a beautifully captured photo of this little eater on her Cocoon Plum! 😍 Does your little one also munches like there’s no tomorrow? Good thing the Cocoon high chair has a comfortable seat pad that makes little ones stay on and munch all day 😍 #oribelph

- Still the most played-with toy in our house, hands down. I’ve lost count of the number of repairs we’ve made, or the number of times I’ve had to tell movers to please be extra extra careful with it because they don’t make it anymore. It has hosted everyone from superheroes to Transformers, Barbies to Minecraft figures, and now 2 Cookie Monsters and an Elmo. Thank you, @melissaanddougtoys for all the creative playtime and memories, and please consider making this again so I can stop worrying each time they pull off a branch! #letthembelittle #playtime #melissaanddoug #treehouse #takebackchildhood #countlesswaystoplay

- Turkey Meatloaf Muffins
Anybody else go on a holiday food bender? I’ve been spending January focusing on balancing my diet with cleaner eats (key word balance) and these muffins hit the spot, even for the 2 year old! I adapted this recipe from @jamieeasonmiddleton. See recipe below. 😊
* 2 lbs. extra lean ground turkey
* 2 whole eggs
* 1 cup old fashioned oats
* 1/2 tsp ground cumin
* 2 tsp dry yellow mustard
* 2 tsp black pepper
* 2 tsp chipotle pepper spice
* 1 tsp salt
* 2 tbsp garlic powder (2 cloves minced)
* 2 tbsp tomato paste
* 2 tbsp Worcestershire * 1 small onion (finely chopped)
* 2 celery stalks (finely chopped)
* Shredded and chopped carrots
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Spray muffin pan with cooking spray
3. Mix all your ingredients together in one large bowl.
4. Roll the mixture into balls and place in muffin pan.
5. Bake for 40 minutes.
- Every day after Jake’s quiet time he asks to do an activity. Sometimes we build train crashes, some days we make letters out of play-dough and some days I surprise him with a new learning game and he goes bananas!
As soon as I call it an “activity” or a “game” he is all in!
Today, Jake and I played a new “game” or “activity” together. We looked at the shape of letters and found spaces for them to fit. We built words (Puzzles really) and then read the words together after.
It was a magical moment.
There was no expectation.
There was no teaching.
Just a lot of exploring and discussing with my 4 year old.
I find when I let my own expectations fall away, that’s when Jake truly surprises me and I can sense his love and joy for whatever we are doing. #activitiesforkids #learningthroughplay
- The only thing better than stickers are reusable stickers!
My little guy spent about an hour today sticking and re-sticking stickers in this awesome sticker-book.
He was able to create pre-historic scenes and play with some of his fav dinos. If your little one loves sticker-books this one from @melissaanddougtoys is really fun.
