I've got glasses!  Mr. Daddy took me to the doctor last week and found that I'm far-sighted with strabismus (that means cross-eyed).  Which means that I get to wear new pink glasses!

Ms. Mommy calls this look, "Two going on Twelve."
Do any of you babies wear glasses?  
What are your tips for keeping them comfortable and keeping them on through the day?

eShakti Review

By Auntie Amelia
There are many signs in the air that Fall is coming...most importantly the release of eShakti's new Fall 2013 line.

eShakti makes lovely, classic dresses with simple, delicate, and sometimes whimsical embellishments.  They size from 0-36, including entering your own measurements for complete customization.  Luckily, I fit perfectly within their size 6 so knew this dress would also fit like a glove.

Even with custom ordering, eShakti's promise is to ship and mail within 18 calendar days - so I was very impressed when I got a text from DHL certified mail to either be home (haha) or okay them to deliver my dress only 9 days after I ordered my sample!  

My favorite thing about eShakti is the ability to customize aspects of the dress.  My sample choice let me customize the sleeve option (I replaced sleeveless with cap sleeves) and length (replaced knee-length with above-knee, after all).  Plus...POCKETS!  For any mommy, auntie or lady knows - pockets should be comfortable, convenient and invisible.  

I'm enamored of the coral color of the skirt and think it will be perfect to wear for the last few days of summer or throw on a sweater as we transition into fall.  For someone who spends a lot of time with kids personally and professionally, I love how light and easy this dress feels. eShakti scored big on all accounts!

eShakti is currently having a $30 gift code for new customers.

Just for kicks - here are a few of my other favorite eShakti dresses for Fall:

DIY Princess Style

By Petunia
Ms. Mommy was very inspired this week.  She says my cuteness has that affect on her sometimes.  
Ms. Mommy is a crafting genius and managed this whole dress with no pattern or anything!  
Here are the directions:
- Find some fabric (this is from a sheet Ms. Mommy found on super sale...I helped find the    sheets with the red stickers)
- Cut it out in shape dress (trace along one of your favorite dresses)
- Sew it together
- Add pearls and sequins

DIY Flowers

By Earl

Time for another DIY Tutorial!  I wanted to make Auntie Amelia take pictures to help illustrate how I made these, but we were having too much fun coloring and forgot!  But if this 2 year old can figure it out - you can, too!

DIY Flowers are simple but endlessly entertaining.
All you need are:
- Coffee filters
- Markers
- Pipe Cleaners
After about two minutes of coloring (see, I told you - endlessly entertaining!), crumple the bottom of the coffee filter up (don't worry if you crumple too much, you can always color another), and ask a grown-up to twist a pipe cleaner around the bottom.
A perfect fashion accessory for every occasion!

Well, not entirely wordless...since I can't let Earl get in the first and last word.
But I can sum up my summer in only one picture:
