The parents at Celery Furniture had assembled more products with excessive amounts of screws than they could bear. So there it was: an idea for a method of assembling parts to create a collection of furniture, and the possibilites seemed endless. It seemed natural to conceive a line of furniture for the nursery that not only appeals to a parent's aesthetic but also nurtures a child's need for comfort and fun. They set out to build products they wanted for their own kids.

It's simple...So simple, in fact, that the need for hardware is eliminated. Mortise and tenon joinery allow for easy assembly without any special know-how, complicated tools or fussy fasteners. We even provide the mallet. By employing an age-old approach to furniture design, Celery has strengthened the Lullaboo line to provide exceptional durability that meets or exceeds industry standards for child safety. And, of course, it has to support a healthy environment for our kids. The selection of bamboo with non-toxic adhesives and formaldehyde-free medium density fiberboard combined with low-VOC finishes affirms our commitment to lasting and eco-friendly materials for all our furniture. That just seemed good for everyone. Designed and fabricated in Bozeman, Montana by local craftspeople.

If I had a girl

Wednesday is my "big" ultrasound...the one where we'll make sure our little one is healthy as well as find out the sex. Though I have had 3 dreams that it is a girl I am pretty sure the results will be BOY.
But...if I do have a girl we are in mighty big trouble because girl clothes are ridiculously cute.
I would definetly buy us some BABY BEAN

My sweet girl would be all baby vintage and sweetness.
Otherwise my boy will be in 100% hand-me-downs from Henry and I won't have any fights with Daddy about spending.

Online Baby Book - cool idea

I am such the online girl and I think this is a great idea...I just may have to do this for #2.
Heritage Makers allows you to have an online scrapbook of sorts.

Open up your account...type all about your baby's first roll-over, crawl, tooth etc and upload your photo...close your browser and then go back to it anytime. Print a book at the end of year one and there you have your instant baby book and no messy writing.
I kept a blog for Henry (and still do) and I am in the process of backtracking to upload it to a similar site ( and it is such a pain in the butt. If I had only uploaded it all along things would be so much easier.

Let me know about your baby you have a book, a blog, will you try something like heritage makers? Comment below!!

A Great Hack

Do you know
It gives great tips and tricks for parents and this is one of my favorites:
Cell phone as baby monitor

From an ingenious parent:

My partner and I were vacationing at a B&B with our 1-year old daughter. When she fell asleep at 8PM, there was plenty of evening left for the adults, but since we were all sleeping in the same room, we didn't bring our baby monitor. Her mother came up with this great hack -- our cell phones. We have free mobile-to-mobile calls, so no issue there. She put our daughter down, called me on my cell phone and left her phone near the pack-and-play. I put her call on speaker and muted my phone. Instant monitor, and we could sit out on the porch worry-free for a couple of hours.

Visit their site for much, much more.
