GM George Cunningham told me this was going to be a hot item this Christmas. In fact Best Buy has set up a “healthy living” area in the store which sells fitness items.

Won’t some one be surprised when they lift up their stocking and think Santa has left them rocks — only to find weights! That would be a great joke.

More fitness gadgets that are easy to fit into the toe of the stocking sock. Sometimes, the smallest gifts are the best.

Baby Getting Heavy?

Babies don’t stay small for long.  My son’s pediatrician would scold me for carrying him around in his car seat saying, “You’re going to hurt your back.”

Here are some recommendations for helping carry the baby was he/she gets older.

1. Rockin’ Baby Slings have beautiful designs in both pouches and slings. Plus for every sling sold they donate one to mothers in Haiti.

2. If you like to keep the baby in the car seat — especially if he/she is sleeping — consider using a Padalily Handle Cushion to help the pressure on the inside of your arm.  As your child gets older the cushion can later be converted to use on a seat belt.

phil&teds Smart Stroller

3. Nothing easier than toting your baby around, than in a fold-up stroller. Our favorite is the phil&teds Smart stroller. The seat is soft; they use material similar to croc shoes, which makes it comfortable for your little one to ride around. Plus it is light enough to make storing it in the car easy. What we like about the stroller is that it adaptable to use with a car seat, and the stroller seat has the option to face out or towards you while you’re walking.

“The Louboutin of Strollers”

Called the “Louboutin” of strollers by Moxie Photography, mother of twins.

THE REVIEW OVER AT MOXIE PHOTOGRAPHY:

“THE STROLLER:  it really does ROCK.  Thanks to ELLEN at Bloommaternity.net (BTW, she is local).  She showed me the what I think was a prototype or one of the first production models months ago.  IT really is so cool and does so many things.  and the fact that it acts like a single stroller is the best.  People all over town keep coming up to me commenting on the stroller.  Wow, its like the Louboutin of strollers.”

Wow Nikki! Thanks so much for this great review for the phil&ted Promenade Stroller.

Nikki is a mother a five, with the youngest two being infant twins. Besides having her plate full with being an awesome Mom, she’s also a kickin’ professional corporate / infant / family / senior-year photographer that is very popular in San Antonio, TX.

Check out Nikki’s blog over at Moxie Photography to get a peek into the busy life of a professional photographer, mother of five with infant twins mixed in. All I can say is that her life is not boring.
