Ashlee is Mama of one darling boy. A 28 week early bird, now 1 and some change, doing beautifully. She lives near Chicago with her sweetheart husband and French Bulldog. She's a thinker not afraid to get her silly on. Babywearer, veggie queen, photography nut. Before the domestic days Ashlee was pursuing a future in developmental psychology but has happily shifted gears in favor of staying at home and couldn't imagine doing anything else. In her free time (ha!) you can find her whipping up babyslings, holding down the fort at Mama Speaks and spotlighting as an Itsy Bitsy Yoga Instructor.

Happy Monday - Happy Knees

Xavier crawls with this sort of crab walk, where one knee stays bent, foot flat on the floor while the other scoots across the ground, propelling him at alarming speed. Very cute. Very efficient. But not so nice on his little knee. He also has quite a Buddha belly, pants dig in and his tum rolls over, which means when we're home he's almost always scooting around in a just a shirt or onesie. Naked legs (or leg actually) on a cold hardwood floor, have led to a chapped calf and semi-calloused knee. I've tried pants- to slippery and the belly issue of course, long socks- saved the calf, but also slippery and still leave that knee wide open... I was beginning to think I needed to resign to grimacing as he shuffled across the floor and just keep on providing a super tender leg massage at the end of the day to repair the damage.

And then... Steph, recommended some Baby Legs, which she'd just bought for Gray. I did some searching and headed over to Urban Baby Runway to buy a pair. They arrived this weekend and are perfect! Hooray for happy knees! So for your viewing pleasure - here's X rocking his Bones Baby Legs on his new potty!

    How cute!! I've wanted to get some for theBeast, but wasn't sure if they'd fit her. And then i took that "pledge" so I'm not buying things. Rats!! top

    Such cute little baby legs! I saw those on Stephanie's blog last summer and wanted them, but Avery didn't crawl for very long, so I couldn't justify the purchase. But now I wish I would have anyway, so much cuteness!
    How great that he has a potty already! You've got a smart one there!
    (and regarding his smiling for the camera when you tell him to say cheese... I am so jealous! But then again, you would get great pictures anyway, I am sure!) top

    Those bones are very cool! And about the new potty...is that a space on the side of it for reading material? I hope! top

    Absolutely for reading materials (there's a little TP holder too!) In fact, when we put him on the potty - he asks for a book... what can I say, he's a boy! top

    Oh so glad you got them already and thanks for the linkage. I don't know if I've ever seen BabyLegs look so darn cool. top
