Here is another great Baby! Baby! giveaway and review from Mud Pies and Tiaras.
I recently had the opportunity to review some items from Chronicle Books. They offer books for every age and from every genre. I was sent "Pregnancy Planner Essential Advice for Moms-to-Be" , "The Fertility Journal", and the Julius! Touch-and-Feel Stroller Cards. The "Fertility Journal" is a day by day guide to getting pregnant. The book includes a section called "Fertility Basics". It covers ways to turbo charge your fertility, how to monitor your cycle, and how stopping different types contraception affects conception. They even include a section called "motherhood after miscarriage", which I appreciated. There's a year's worth of journal space to track your trying to conceive journey. Each week includes facts and tips, along with a space to answer certain questions. For women who need a little help getting pregnant, there's a section about infertility and a calendar to record all doctor's appointments and medications. I thought this book was laid out really well and is a great way to record your journey. Unfortunately, getting pregnant isn't always easy and this journal helps guide you and keep you organized. The "Pregnancy Planner" is great! It's divided into 5 sections: Countdown, Gear, Health, Birth Day, and Homecoming. The countdown has a page for each week from 5 to 40. There's a space to jot down feelings or syptoms as well information and facts pertaining to that time. even after 5 kids, I still found facts that I didn't know. The gear section gives you tips about all the things you'll need as well as the things that aren't so necessary. The health section explains some of the things your body does during pregnancy. The birth day section gives you tips about what to take to the hospital and has a place to record contractions. and lastly, the homecoming section talks about what happens to your body after delivery. That's something that's not always discussed. This planner is not only funtional but also informative. I really enjoyed reading all the tips it offered. Chronicle Books offers lots of neat things, including the Julius Touch and Fell Stroller cards I received. they are super cute and I know my little one will love playing with them!

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need: 2 Cups of Sugar 2 Cups of Water 1 Package Sugar Free Jello A candy Thermometer Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li
