Little Miss is Two

I can't believe it has already been a month since we celebrated Ziva's second birthday. There are days when it does not seem possible that she is already two and then there are days when I have to remind myself she is only two. She is so independent and her verbal skills are quite impressive so she had a lot to say about her party. She choose Minnie Mouse as her theme. So there was a lot of pink in the house.
I always make our children's birthday cakes so when Ziva asked for cupcakes I knew I would make them myself. I used regular and mini Oreos to make Minnie Mouse shaped heads on top and then laid them out in a mouse shaped head. This was one of the easiest birthday "cakes" I have done so far.
Thanks to Pinterest I found this tutorial for a Minnie Mouse hair bow and made it using fabric from one of Hubby's old black t-shirts. It was a little to heavy for her hair but she loved it. She had such fun being the center of attention for the day. I can't wait to see what this next year will bring for Ziva. She amazes me everyday with her curiosity, she maybe two but she is two going on fourteen.

BabyKicks Goes Pink, Let's have a Twitter Party to Celebrate!

Just when I thought I couldn't love BabyKicks anymore they announced their 2+2+2 promotion. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month they have revealed limited edition pink diapers that are only available on their Facebook page . When you purchase a diaper not only do you get $2 off the retail value and $2 flat rate shipping, BabyKicks will donate $2 to be split evenly between the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and Women Supporting Women. These special diapers are only available for the month of October. So not only do you get a great diaper for a great price, you are helping women who are fighting the battle of their life.

To celebrate this awesome promotion BabyKicks is throwing a Twitter Party next Tuesday at 9 pm EST. This will be my third Twitter Party with BabyKicks and they are always so much fun. On top of getting to chat with everyone there will also be four pink prizes, two pink fitteds, pink washies and a pink trimmed blanket. You have to RSVP to here to win. If you are still a little intimidated by Twitter parties The Inquisitive Mom has a great tutorial here.

I hope to see you at the party. Even if you can't make it be sure to pick up your favorite BabyKicks diaper in pink and support a great cause. I already got permission from the Hubs to get one for Hezekiah, even boys can wear pink.
