Chloe was on her playmat when I left the room, staring up at the flashing star. When I returned, she had flipped and scooted off....I think she even surprised herself, look at that little expression!

My latest obsession

I can't get enough Giddy Giddy for Chloe. I'm obsessed with these little hair clips, the bird is my favorite. Today the new hair clip holder arrived! We're anxiously awaiting the arrival of more Giddy Giddy...I ordered an owl, popsicle, flower, and heart barrette. 
Mama Angie made her the kiwi and heart. 
J'adore Giddy Giddy!

Petite Workstation

We went to Giggle to see if Chloe would like a bébéPOD chair....she went bananas the second we put her in that seat! 
See how happy she is at home. Don says it looks like she's at a mini desk, checking her emails.
