Liven Your Little One's Taste Buds!

            Hey folks! There seems to be a misconception that baby's first foods have to be bland and boring...Which is simply not true! We have been slowly introducing purees to Little Bit lately, so I was definitely interested when I came across the book Around the World in 80 Purees: Easy Recipes for Global Baby Food on Mom Bloggers Club recently. Here's a little more about the book:

            The transition to solid foods is a milestone across all cultures. And by sharing a broad range of flavors and ingredients with their little ones, parents can encourage a lifetime of adventurous eating. In Around the World in 80 Purees, Saini shares her research of global first foods and offers developmentally appropriate serving suggestions and tips for safely introducing babies to herbs, spices, and other ingredients. More than 100 quick and easy recipes, accompanied by richly colorful photographs by Christine Han, take readers on a culinary tour of the globe.

             Now, if you're anything like me, I like to find out as much as I can about books before actually committing to purchasing them. I love books, but they can be kind of pricey! If Around the World in 80 Purees sounds like something you would be interested, you're in luck! You can check out a few of their recipes below.

            What were your babies favorite first foods? Did you completely skip purees and go straight to finger foods? Be sure to check back for a full review of the book Around the World in 80 Purees soon!

Soul Tai Review

             Hey folks! Being the parent of one child can be chaotic enough. Add in another one (or two or five!) and you pretty much need a free set of hands. Someone is going to constantly be asking for something or needing this or that. That's why, now that I have two children, I have learned firsthand why so many parents are fond of babywearing nowadays. Not only does it free up your hands, but you still get to keep your little ones close without feeling like you're neglecting anybody! (Or anything, for that matter. I'm sure plenty of you out there have done household chores while babywearing!)
             For all of these reasons and more, it is easy to fall in love with babywearing. It also goes without saying that safety and comfort are of utmost importance when choosing the right baby carrier for you and your little one, as well as quality. That's why I'm excited to share with you today my review of a carrier from Soul Slings that gets check marks next to all three of those things!
            As you may have read in previous babywearing reviews/posts, I have an affinity for mei tais. It goes without saying that I was more than happy to try the Soul Tai out recently. For those of you who are into specs, here are a few from Soul Sling's website:

*Weight recommendation: 7 -18 kg (15-40 lb) approx
*Fibre: Woven cotton panel with pure sturdy woven cotton base and straps
*Straps: Hybrid (centrally padded) wrap straps
*Tested for: ASTM F2236-14
*Sizing: 88" waist
*80" shoulder length
*12" width strap at the shoulders
*Soul Tai panel is 16" tall at tallest point to top of the waist band and 15" wide at the top of the waist band measured with soft tape. 
             Before I go into details, my initial impression?...
(Please tell me I'm not the only one who's seen "How To Train Your Dragon 2" a hundred times.)

             Seriously, though, I couldn't believe how comfortable this carrier was right from the get-go! I did wash it first, because I am OCD like that, but it's not as if it were “well-loved” and worn in yet. Here's what else I liked about the Soul Tai:

*Extra long shoulder straps compared to the Mei Tai Baby (MTB) that I previously reviewed. As I've mentioned before, I'm a bigger girl and these straps actually reach around to my back again!

Our maiden voyage to *shocker* Rural King. She likes it, I swear! (The carrier, that is. ;) )

*Since they are hybrid shoulder straps and flare out to wrap width, they are SOOO much more comfortable than any other baby carrier I have tried. I'm stubborn and put off trying them out this way for awhile and regret it. They seriously make all of the difference in the comfort to weight distribution ratio.

*The central padding on the shoulder straps is nice and cushy as well (another thing the Mei Tai Baby lacks). They are more like soft-structured carrier straps, which was a nice change.

*I'm still not certain if it's just because the carrier is still new and not “broken in” much, but I have been pleasantly surprised that the wrap straps stay folded in place under the regular part of the straps if you want them too, if that makes sense. I was worried at first that I would be constantly battling them to stay in place while I was trying to get the shoulder straps adjusted. (Not that that's been an issue anyway since I like having them flared out!)

*The Soul Sling has been much easier and comfier for me to fold the seat smaller for Little Bit than the MTB. She likes sitting higher than I feel like most babies her age do and I like that I have the versatility of being able to fold the seat at all (compared to a SSC where you're pretty much stuck with one size) and really get a custom fit.

*It's easy to get baby positioned well with little or no effort.

*Love, love, LOVE that this comes with a nap hood built in!...Even though we've only been able to use it once, really, without Little Bit throwing a full on fit. At least the option is there, right?

*Overall the Soul Tai seems very sturdy and well-made; very strong stitching.

*I have to admit that I was expecting something thinner for some reason, being that this particular mei tai is made of cotton. However, it's still pretty breathable. (I was worried about this since we're trying it out in the middle of summer and we both get hot easily!) We used this at the county fair a couple of times, even with the hood up once in 85 degree + weather, and neither one of us got too hot. Ripley got a little warm with the hood up, but I honestly think that had more to do with the fact that she had her face buried in my chest while sleeping. (Does anyone else have babies that try to smother themselves while sleeping in baby carriers?!)

*As much as I think Ripley and I would both like it, I have not been adventurous enough to try back carrying out very many times. However, after only practicing a few times, I think I was close to where I needed it to be for safety reasons, baby size, and comfort for me, for what it's worth. Back carries seem tricky in any type of carrier! Soul Sling's does have a video on their YouTube channel on how to do a back carry with the Soul Tai. (P.s. You can also do hip carries.)

Our first time with hubby's help. Not bad, but she could have been a little higher.

*There are several fabric types and tons of beautiful prints to choose from!

*Depending on the type of fabric and print, Soul Tais currently range from $52.00 to $86.00, making them an economical choice as well!

Only took me a little over an hour to get her to go to sleep walking around my in-laws house one night. Sheesh...

What I had issues with:

*My biggest issue with the Soul Sling is that, since I'm actually able to tie the shoulder straps around my back, I have a hard time getting it off by myself. I get the knots mixed up and usually end up choosing the wrong one to untie first. (Don't worry. I've not had any mishaps dropping her or anything!) That being said, through my local babywearing group, I have discovered that there are all sorts of “fancy” finishes I can do with the tails so that they do not get mixed up or in the way, so I guess I need to start practicing some of those!

*This isn't exactly an issue, but I'm not really sure how the nap hood is supposed to be secured to the loops. There are two strings and two loops on each side, so I'm guessing this is so there are multiple ways you can tie it depending on preference and how far up or down baby sits in the carrier.

             Never fear! If mei tais aren't your bag, Soul Slings also offers woven wraps, ring slings, and full buckle carriers in both standard and toddler sizes. With beautiful fabrics, affordable prices, and a variety of carrier types to choose from, you are sure to find one you love! (P.s. Did I forget to mention they ship WORLDWIDE TOO?! If you are in the U.S., you can also purchase Soul Sling carriers from Dearest Diapers, 5 Minute Recess, and more.) Be sure to stay up-to-date with them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.

Learn About Less Common Fire Starters with Smokey Bear!

For 72 years, Smokey Bear has been in our homes and in our schools reminding us that WE can and should prevent forest fires.
  Smokey The Bear #OnlyYou #SmokeyBearHug 
 It is the time of year when families are out and about, going on hikes, taking summer camping trips, and just all around enjoying the nature around us. But before you head out on your journey to get away from civilization and relish that invaluable time with your kids, please remember how important it is to take care of the fragile nature you are about to enjoy. We all know the regular things that start fires – the ones we have learned about for years. But – there are SO many things that can start a fire that most people do not even know about!  
The Ad Council, the U.S. Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters (NASF), have launched a new series of public service advertisements (PSAs) that aim to help prevent wildfires nationwide by increasing awareness about less commonly known fire starts. Did you know? A wildfire can start due to the following:
  • Metal chains hanging from a moving vehicle
  • Parking over tall, dry grass
  • Improperly extinguished fire pit
  • Dumping ashes from a BBQ/grill
  • Dying embers left in a campfire
Smokey The Bear #OnlyYou #SmokeyBearHug  
            Millions of wildland acres will burn unintentionally this year. Much of it because most people are unaware of many things that can actually start a wild fire – things that most people would never think of. When camping, take care when using and fueling lanterns, stoves, and heaters. Make sure lighting and heating devices are cool before refueling. Avoid spilling flammable liquids and store fuel away from appliances. Do not discard cigarettes, matches, and smoking materials from moving vehicles, or anywhere on park grounds. Be certain to completely extinguish cigarettes before disposing of them. Follow local ordinances when burning yard waste. Avoid backyard burning in windy conditions, and keep a shovel, water, and fire retardant nearby to keep fires in check. Remove all flammables from yard when burning.
            Although most of us don’t behave this way intentionally, each year we learn of devastating wildfires caused by careless behavior which can impact millions of acres of forest and thousands of homes. Although four out of five wildfires are started by people, nature is usually more than happy to help fan the flames.
 Smokey The Bear #OnlyYou #SmokeyBearHug  
Right now, California and Colorado are being devastated by wild fires! Please – get the word out and remind your friends and family! Share this message, your own camping tips, and fire prevention methods on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #SmokeyBearHug and #OnlyYou! And if you tag @smokey_bear on Twitter – he may just tweet you back!

Handy Equipment for the Homesteader on a Budget


             Hey folks! I recently read a post on another blog on basic tools that come in handy for a small/backyard homesteader. While I definitely agreed with most of them, I thought I would expand upon her list a little. Plus, I would love to share my list with other homesteaders/gardeners who may be in the same boat as us and not have a fortune to spend on power equipment, as nice as it would be! (One can always dream, right?) Even though we have a decent chunk of land altogether (a little over 24 acres), most of it is wooded and not suitable for farm land (yet), so the area we're currently using for planting is pretty small, so I would like to think this list will apply to yards/gardens of all sizes!


  1. Shovel-Let's face it: This is a necessity. Even if you're not using it for planting, you will likely need to dig something up at some point, whether it's to dig up an unwanted plant, turn/spread compost around, etc.

  2. Trowel-Honestly, I actually don't use these much because, well, they require kneeling or squatting, in general. Both of which I hate doing. BUT, they can come in very handy for transplanting seedlings, removing weeds, etc. Plus my 3 year old loves using it to dig in the dirt for fun, so that's good enough for me that she's keeping herself entertained outdoors. ;)

  3. Rakes-Both metal and plastic. Out of all of the non-powered tools I use around the farm, our metal rake is my #1 go-to and most used tool. Seriously. I love it a little too much. It's surprisingly versatile and inexpensive! I use it for a plethora of jobs, including grass raking, weed raking, evening out soil, and much more. 

    We have tons of trees, so naturally, a ton of leaves in the fall. The regular ole heavy duty plastic rake is, of course, the best choice for this job, if you're into raking leaves. Honestly, the main reason I rake ANY leaves is for my 3 year old to jump in. ha ha Although I do also rake them away from the north side of the house in the spring because they collect like crazy against the house during the winter! The regular plastic rakes are also good for raking grass clippings, I have found.

  4. Pitchfork-I had been wanting one of these FOR-EV-ER. But truthfully, now that I have one, I haven't used it as much as I thought I would. However, it has come in handy for turning over our compost pile and picking up piles of grass clippings and chicken bedding/poo to put on said compost pile.

  5. Twist Tiller-If you happen to follow me on Instagram, you probably saw that we recently purchased one of these while meandering through Rural King, killing time between doctors appointments. (Have I mentioned that I REALLY love Rural King?) For $10, we couldn't resist.

    If you've read any of our homesteading updates lately, you will know that we don't have a roto-tiller because they are just out of our budget right now. (The lower end of purchasing a brand new one is $300-$400, last time we checked. Yikes!) So, we bought a pig to do the job.

    However, even with the pig, we will still need to do some tilling of our own, as we have a Guinea Hog and they are said to not root (aka dig) as much as other hog breeds. No problem, now that we have this handy dandy tool. I've already tried it out on a small area of the garden where we had some onions that we already harvested and need to make way for fall crops. We had a lot more grass/turf there than I care to admit, but if you're up for a super arm workout, then I definitely recommend one of these. It takes some work, but it's better than nothing (or using a shovel). 

    We are planning on putting our pig in our old garden areas to take care of the “clean up”, so I imagine it will be easier to “till up” these areas with this tool afterwards, not that it's impossible to do it on undisturbed ground. Like I said, it just takes a lot more effort! But, growing our own food is worth the effort, right? Plus, if I can do it, you can do it! Even though I used to play tennis throughout my youth, I have little upper body strength. So, there ya go.

  6. Wheelbarrow-This is also one of my favorite “tools” around the homestead. I use it for everything from hauling new chicken feed bags off to the coop to hauling sticks to the fire pit to hauling grass clippings to the chicken coop. Even if you have a small space, a wheelbarrow can come in very handy for so many things!

  7. Work gloves, rope/twine, etc.-I felt like maybe these shouldn't have been included in this list as they're not exactly tools, but these things are worth their weight in gold if you happen to need them. Work gloves come in handy for all kinds of projects, especially weeding. Seriously. Take it from me: Use gloves of any kind when weeding! If you're like me (especially if you neglect your garden at first like we did!), you will get “weed cuts” (like paper cuts). They're not fun, take longer to heal than you would think, and are more bothersome than you would expect. Work gloves can be purchased for fairly cheap in bundles at farm supply stores. Do yourself the favor!
          Rope/twine can come in handy for lots of projects too, even if you aren't raising livestock of 
          any kind. For instance, we have a grapevine that we really need to train and a few "extra"
          tomato plants that we don't have cages for. I have a feeling our extra laundry line cord is going 
          to come in handy soon for these!
  1. Loppers/Tree Trimmers-If you have a lot of bushes, trees, and brush like we do, definitely invest in some loppers! We just recently purchased one and I don't know how we went without before! It's been great for cleaning the paths up through the woods as well as clearing small trees from big areas we are trying to clear for the future.

Powered Tools

  1. Ride-On Lawn Mower-Besides the obvious of mowing your lawn if you have a large one, these also come in SO handy if you have a nifty lawn mower cart like we built last fall. Luckily, we came into our ride-on mower for free, but I'm sure you could purchase your own at a discounted price at a local used small engine repair/farm equipment store. If you have an abundance of wood on your property and like perusing local Facebook groups for deals, the initial investment of the mower is worth it. The “cart” can be built for next to nothing and, depending on how big of a cart you build, is basically like having a mini tractor/backhoe. Awesome, indeed!

  2. Weed Eater-If you don't have a roto-tiller, a weed eater is very helpful in preparing areas you want to plant...Besides it's intended purpose. This is my other go-to tool. I used it to prepare our main garden, our squash patch 2.0, and grain crop rows for the chickens. It's also handy for weeding between large rows, like our squash patch, for example. We have a lot of overgrowth/brush and I've used ours to thin areas of that out as well. I do realize weed eaters are a bit more expensive, but they are totally worth investing in, if able!

          What are your go-to tools around the yard?

11 Things I Miss From Before I Had Kids...

            Hey folks! We all have things, no matter how ludicrous or selfish they may be, we miss from before we had kids, right? Well, here's my list...

  1. Being able to run to any store quickly without it turning into an event.
  2. Playing video/computer games any time I wanted, as long as I wanted. (At least I could MAKE my Sims go to bed. ;) )

     Nighty night!

  3. Going somewhere on a whim without much forward planning or preparing. (We still go places on a whim, but I think we all know how long it can take to get kids and all of their accoutrements ready!)
  4. Not having to find a babysitter before seeing a movie, going out to eat at a sit down restaurant, etc.
  5. Time alone! (I have good sleepers, so I've been working on getting up earlier for this reason!)
  6. Only worrying about myself. (i.e. Not worrying about my offspring turning into a demon in public and making sure they are not getting into things they shouldn't be.)

  7. Staying up late and binge watching tv shows on Netflix.
  8. Not having to stop in the middle of something to attend to something (or someone else).
  9. Not having someone trying to get my attention every 5 seconds...To show me the exact same thing they showed me 5 seconds ago.
  10. Being able to have “mommy-daddy alone time” any time of day.
  11. Getting things done quicker because I didn't have a “helper”.
           What things would be on YOUR list?
