If your a mom, you probably have a ton of broken crayons! I know I did. Instead of throwing them out we made new crayons with them! It was a great activity!
Asher loved the concept of breaking the crayons into even smaller pieces. Plus he loved telling me the colors as well.
I then did a coloring activity with the new crayons we made! This was a 2 day process. Here's what you need!
I am super excited to announce that I have opened an Etsy store!
Aubriella has so many headbands. They were all just thrown in a drawer and I could never find which one I wanted. So I decided to make her a headband holder! She currently now has 2 headband holders and both are filled!
I than decided why not do a same style hat holder for Asher! Adam and I are always running around the house asking who saw his hat last so he can go outside and play! Now the headbands and hats are both organized and in one place! This makes me very happy!
After having Aubriella in May this year, we decided it's silly for me go back to work full time. We would pay out more to have someone watch both kids and I would miss out on a lot. I do enjoy my days off with the kids and being very active in their lives. I love doing activities with them. So I am now part time. By opening this Etsy store I am hoping to provide a little extra income for my family!
I have expanded pretty quickly and have been adding new items continuously. I have started making bows & headbands! ALSO one of my favorites is a matching sibling pocket T-shirts and Bows! Definitely check them if you have 2 or more children. I also can do matching brother shirts or sister bows.
I am doing a giveaway to promote my Etsy shop. Once my Facebook page(Asher&Aubs Creations) reaches 100 follows I will be giving away a free headband or hat holder of the winners choice. If they chose specific colors it will take 1-2 weeks to process.

I am so excited to start this series! When Asher started eating baby food I did not have my blog. I wish I did because I homemade all of his baby food as I now do with his squeeze pouches. I was able to pull out some of the same recipes that I found all crinkled in a drawer.
Aubriella is just about 4 months old. We will be introducing her to foods really soon! I know everyone has their own opinion as to when a baby should start foods. I always check with my pediatrician. Plus every child is different. My kids are hungry babies. Constantly hungry! My pediatrician recommended at 4 months we introduced foods to Asher. All I can say is from my experience, Asher was a completely different baby once starting foods! Not only did he start sleeping longer, but just his whole demeanor changed. He became more content, happier, and so pleasant to be around! Aub's is definitely following in his footsteps!
Asher never cared for the rice cereal. Rice cereal is suppose to be a good beginner food, but there is also a lot of debates about how nutritious it really is. Once again I can only speak from my experience and my son did not like it, so we skipped right over it! I plan to do the same with Aubriella.
There are so many options for first foods. I'm going to share 4 of the first foods I try with my babe's, how to make them, and how to store them.
The first food is PEARS. This was Asher's absolute favorite. He still loves pears to this day. Pears don't have a strong flavor which makes them desirable. They also are fairly easy to digest.
Pears & Apples w/ Cinnamon
The following day you can label baggies and dump the cube into baggies. These cube's are good in the freezer for 3- 6 months. 3 months is more desirable.
Thawing: The night before I will get what foods I want to feed my baby the next day. I will place them in separate kiddie bowls and cover with plastic wrap and place them in the fridge to defrost. Then when I am ready to feed my baby I will warm the puree for 7 seconds in the microwave. I then stir the puree and check for hot spots.
When introducing baby food make sure to only introduce one food at a time. I allow 3 days of introducing the same food before I introduce another. In those 3 days I'm checking to make sure my baby does not have a reaction. Making sure there's no rash, constipation, diarrhea, or any other signs of a food reaction.
If you are using rice cereal try mixing one of the fruit puree's in with the rice cereal!
Again I am not pediatrician, you should always consult with them first. I am just sharing my recipes and my personal experiences! Enjoy!
