Valentine’s day is quickly approaching, which brings me to thoughts of reds & pinks for my 2 big chicks and perhaps something red for my little stallion. It’s gonna be such a delight dressing up my lil fashionistas next Thursday! I’ve found the cutest finds on my favorite online boutique shop, Etsy and also a couple of adorable finds for JJ too 😉

Hello IjoMoms & IjoDads! I must say, it is thoroughly enjoyable when I get to write about IjoBabies on ButterFridays! And WOW can you believe it’s February ALREADY!? Next week’s column will be about Val’s day and I’m soooo excited about next week’s Pink & Red post!

In the meantime, let’s talk about kids decor shall we, specially kid’s rooms and nurseries. I thought I did pretty well with decorating JJ’s nursery. I stayed away from the typical blues and went for more earth tone colors. But then pinterest hit the social media spectrum with a huge hit! and now we are open to new horizons of visual deliciousness!

I’ve discovered new ways savvy creative parents, like myself are making kids stay, play & LOVE living in their rooms. When you see these fashion statement  and themed rooms, I bet even YOU would want to play & stay in there WITH your kids too 😉

After last week’s column, I hope this subject won’t be terribly boring. It certainly is an important one to mention for moms & dads with lil crawlers and climbers, like myself. JJ is crawling, teething and simply more active than ever! Our family is now faced with the inevitable…childproofing!
I discovered some cool new items…and better versions of old stuff, since last time I had a lil crawler! Check these out, I’ve even added some cool tip bits to help parents out!

“Donkey years” ago, my new fav. words for “Ages ago” lol, I did a post on Rachelle Yakubu, but I really didn’t do her much justice because for whatever reason, I didn’t show her images. WELL you’re in for a GRAND treat on today’s ButterFridays.

Rachelle Yakubu is the ultimate definition of  a Momtrepreneur. She is a mom of 3, like myself, and also is a creative visual artist in children’s & maternity photography. Rachelle takes the MOST clever MOST adorable kiddie photos I’ve ever seen!

I compared her once to Anne Geddes, but I must say Rachelle’s style is quite different and over the years she has made herself very distinct. WE LOVE ORIGINALITY! So seeing her work unfold right before our eyes is just a breathe of fresh air…ahhhh.

I have to say Rachelle Yakubu is rightly in a “league of her own”. If you are ever in the Carolinas’, make sure to stop by Rachelle Yakubu’s & send our Hellos!

Enjoy these SPLENDID fairy tale/comic/story book visuals of what I’m sure will bring back nostalgia for most of us 🙂

ButterFridays! ~ Little Boys Euro Flair

Finding fashionable clothing for lil boys are soooo HARD! and it wasn’t until I had a baby boy did this occur to me. I’m sure my friends with baby boys are reading this and saying, “welcome to our world!”. Of course I HAD to go searching for where I can find some decent clothing for boys with an IjoBABY flair! Did I tell you how HARD it is to find anything out there stylish for boys?

I LOVE anything with an European flair! So when I came across Jacadi PARIS, I immediately bookmarked it for JJ’s future use!
Let me know what you think about these adorable pieces from Jacadi PARIS and if you happen to know other places for boys with a unique flair, do share by leaving me a comment or 2!

P.S- I threw in a photo of the stuffed animals from Jacadi, it was too cute I had to share 😉
