petit elefant on facebook.

Thanks to my dear husband, {I could write a whole post about how much I love him. Maybe I will. Later} created a Petit Elefant Facebook Page! Hooray. So now you can follow me on twitter: @petit_elefant and become a fan on Facebook. Just in case you weren’t getting enough of Petit Elefant, I’ve made it a little bit easier to become a stalker. Okay, I don’t really want *stalkers*, but come if you love me.

applique onesie.

Over Christmas my family I needed a hand-made something as a gift to my sweet nephew {we were doing a hand-made only Christmas as an extended family}. I didn’t have a whole lot of time, so I looked to the power of creative moms and found CuckooBoo, an online boutique full of adorable hand-made children’s apparel, hair clips, and more. I needed something *train*, and CuckooBoo whipped up the cutest appliqued train shirt you’ve ever seen. I wish I’d taken…

weekly fitness tip: reward yourself for working out.

I didn’t get to a fitness tip on Monday because we welcomed back our wonderful Alma from *maternity leave* {welcome back Alma, we love you!}. I might have to move my new section of fitness tips to a different day; Mondays belong to Alma. In any case, here’s the next tip. Reward Yourself. And by *reward yourself* I don’t mean go eat a few cupcakes. I mean when you hit a target goal of yours, reward yourself with something you…

Etiquette

We recently went out to breakfast, on a Saturday morning, to a hugely popular local establishment. You know, one of those places with not-so-great atmosphere but great food and reasonable prices, frequented by all types of people, with a wait staff comprised almost entirely of rough-around-the-edges grandmas.  The lobby was standing-room only, packed with all walks of life waiting to be seated for breakfast. Hubby was wrangling our toddler while I searched for a comfortable place to stand my 9…

mom 2.0 summit recap.

{This is me checking in, day 1. Notice my new Shade outfit? Love it.} I can’t even tell you how much fun I had at Mom 2.0 this past weekend. F-U-N. The amount of energy and brain power packed into those ballrooms at the Four Seasons was crazy; I felt like I needed my spare brain {you all have one of those lying around, right?} after only a few hours in the first day. It was amazing. I learned so…

It used to be pretty difficult to find something suitable for little boys to wear that didn’t involve superheroes or dinosaurs. But that’s the beauty of the internet these days; it’s easy to find plenty of great things without ever leaving home. babysusu is one of those designers with a few great finds. It’s a collection for little boys 0-4 that is reminiscent of classic & modern but perfect for little boys all at the same time. V-Neck Cashmere Sweater…

what should be in your diaper bag?

Well, I’m back! It’s Monday morning and little O is sleeping quietly beside me in his bassinet. There is so much that I have to say about parenthood now that I’m officially a parent, but I can’t tell you everything all at once! Where will be the fun in that? What I will say right now is that nothing could have prepared me for how I would feel about my sweet baby and my sweet husband throughout this experience. I…
