Nuby Easy Grip Bowl Review

The Nuby Easy Grip Bowl is perfect for when you start feeding your baby solid foods. It's great because it has two perfect size portioned spaces for different foods and comes with a tight fitting lid. The lid has an automatic steam vent which makes it great because you can keep it on while heating your little ones food. This way it prevents food from splashing all over the microwave. The side handle makes this piece very easy to hold and fits comfortably in either hand. The Nuby Easy Grip Bowl also comes with a long handled spoon. I love the length of this spoon because it fits down in deep jars without you having to get your hands messy.
 The Nuby Easy Grip Bowl comes in a variety of colors!

ANNOUNCEMENT: DisneyNature "Wings Of Life" to be released on April 16th on Blu-Ray!



BURBANK, Calif. (March 8, 2013) — Spring is in the air—literally—as Disneynature prepares to unveil “Wings of Life,” a spectacular, closer-than-close, high-definition look at the intricate world of butterflies, hummingbirds, bees and bats, and their life-sustaining collaboration with flowers. Directed by Louie Schwartzberg (“America’s Heart & Soul”) and narrated by Academy Award® winner Meryl Streep, “Wings of Life” will be available on Blu-ray Combo Pack, Digital and On Demand on April 16, 2013—just in time for Earth Day.
“In the chaos and craziness of our day-to-day lives, few of us stop to consider what’s happening behind the scenes in nature that makes our lives possible,” said Streep. “This film is a stunning adventure that literally takes flight alongside all kinds of winged creatures—butterflies, bees and bats—each working hard to pollinate our planet.”
Said Schwartzberg, “For me, the joy of doing this film is to be able to explore worlds that humans can’t easily experience—bats sipping nectar in the middle of the desert at night, orchid bees expertly manipulated by a bucket orchid, exotic hummingbirds flying like airborne dancers, and a clustering monarch colony with millions of butterflies. I hope to share the spectacle of nature and to spark in others the sense of wonder I have about the natural world.”
Employing multiple cameras, both time-lapse and high-speed cinematography and extraordinary patience (while nature took its time unfolding), filmmakers shot on location in more than a dozen areas, ranging from the El Rosario Preserve in Michoacán, Mexico, to Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument Park in Arizona. “Wings of Life” features extraordinary imagery shot with digital cameras—one capable of frame rates of up to 1500 frames per second, and the use of a pinhole lens, which allowed the
cameraman to get within millimeters of an insect subject while retaining a clear view of the background. The resulting imagery—intimate and breathtaking—is brought to life for audiences through spectacular high-definition picture and sound quality.
To celebrate the debut of “Wings of Life,” Disneynature has made a contribution to the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund (DWCF) to protect pollinators worldwide. The DWCF has already supported more than 20 projects across North America focused on protecting pollinators and their habitats. Grants have helped conservationists save endangered butterflies, expand habitat for honeybees and educate children about the importance of pollinators and how they can help protect them.
The “Wings of Life” Blu-ray Combo Pack includes a sneak peek at Disneynature’s 2014 big-screen adventure “Bears.” In an epic story of breathtaking scale set against a majestic Alaskan backdrop teeming with life, the film, which is currently in production, follows two mother grizzly bears as they impart life lessons to their impressionable young cubs.
From Disneynature, the studio that brought you Earth, Oceans, African Cats and Chimpanzee, comes Wings of Life — a stunning adventure full of intrigue, drama and mesmerizing beauty. Narrated by Meryl Streep, this intimate and unprecedented look at butterflies, hummingbirds, bees, bats and flowers is a celebration of life, as a third of the world’s food supply depends on these incredible — and increasingly threatened — creatures.
Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg, Wings of Life utilizes riveting high-speed, time lapse and macro filmmaking to showcase in spectacular detail these unsung heroes of our planet.

Walt Disney was a pioneer in wildlife filmmaking, producing 13 True-Life Adventure motion pictures between 1948 and 1960, which earned eight Academy Awards®. The first four Disneynature films, “Earth,” “Oceans,” “African Cats” and “Chimpanzee,” are four of the top five highest overall grossing feature-length nature films to date, with “Chimpanzee” garnering a record-breaking opening weekend for the genre. Disney’s commitment to conservation is a key pillar of the label and Disneynature films empower the audience to help make a difference. Through donations tied to opening-week attendance for all four films, Disneynature, through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund, has planted three million trees in Brazil’s Atlantic Forest, established 40,000 acres of marine protected area in The Bahamas, protected 65,000 acres of savanna in Kenya, protected 129,236 acres of wild chimpanzee habitat, educated 60,000 school children about chimpanzee conservation and cared for chimpanzees.

 Channing loves to watch the different streams of water come out of the bottoms. These are fun to be stacked or nested and are a great learning tool to teach colors, shapes, counting etc. They also help to develop their 5 senses! We highly recommend the Nuby Splish Splash Cups!

Boba 3g Carrier Review!

Boba Family
My little guy (8 months old- 23lbs!) has always wanted to be super close to me at all times. I was beginning to think that I would never get my daily chores done at the rate I was going. I was then introduced to the Boba 3g Carrier. Previously I used a baby K'tan wrap when he was smaller but it never seemed very comfortable for me. I honestly don't know how I survived without a Boba! The Boba 3g has truly been a life saver for us. Channing loves riding on my front or back in this carrier. He fits so well and looks incredibly comfortable in the Boba. I am now able to get my chores done plus more!

Boba 3G is designed for babies and toddlers approximately 7 to 45 pounds. It is made of 100% cotton. It comes with a removable sleeping hood and removable foot straps. It can be used in a front carry and back carry and adjusts to an infant carrier without an extra insert.

When Channing hit about 6 months old, he decided that he never wanted to be in his stroller when we were out and about and that he'd rather be held. As many of you moms probably know, this makes shopping a bit hard to do with no free hands. After I was introduced to the Boba 3g, I now reach for it every time we head into the store. We have honestly been using it a ton more than our stroller.

The Boba 3g Carrier is amazingly comfortable and incredibly easy to put on and adjust. It's as simple as clipping the waist belt, loading baby, pulling up the arm straps and hooking the chest strap. After that you can make a few simple strap adjustments and your good to go! I absolutely love that the waist strap can be adjusted on both sides. This makes it very easy to adjust because you can pull both straps at the same time to get the perfect fit.

Another one of my favorite features of the Boba is that it has built in pockets that make storing your cell phone, money, keys etc an easy task! I also love that it has a snap that will hold your purse strap in place.
Boba Carrier 3G
The Boba is made of very high quality materials and is truly built to last. My only complaint is that I ordered the all black carrier and it picks up lint very badly. I am always having to use a lint roller to wipe it off. This is a very minor problem in my opinion and it doesn't bother me much. If I were to order another one, I would probably order one of the fun print options! I chose the all black because I thought I would have a better chance of talking my husband into using the carrier this way. My thinking was right and he totally loves the Boba as well.

Channing almost routinely will fall asleep when I have him in the Boba for any length of time. The Boba works wonders for us when Channing is a little fussy or if he is fighting his sleep. He is in the 95th% for his height and weight and I believe that the Boba is perfect for him. We tried on an Ergo carrier and I would have to say the Boba fit him a lot better and appeared more comfortable for him.

We received the Boba Teething Pads with our Boba and I couldn't be more thankful. I wondered to myself if these were really necessary. Channing is constantly chewing or sucking on these pads while he is in the carrier. I love that these teething pads attach around the straps with snaps instead of Velcro. I wish that they came in fun colors or designs!
