Giggles and Wiggles with My Gerber Baby, Snack Time & a Simple DIY Baby and Doggy Scarf Set

Well, I'm not going to sugar coat it, our days have been long for the last week or so. For many reasons, but mainly because we've been dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. We've all been hot, trying to cope with an alternative way of life without electric, and bouncing around between family and friend's houses. I'm not complaining, because it could have been SO much worse... but I will say, it's nice for life to feel a little more normal now.

I know two girls in my life that are loving the "normalcy". We've been able to make our normal Target runs and pick up our favorite snacks (which they are always super excited to munch on). We are loving spending time together doing crafts, snuggling, playing, and just easing back into our daily routine again.

Along with our routine comes drool, thanks to Miss Delainey. Instead of battling the drool spots on her clothes, I decided to get a little crafty... and of course, we couldn't leave Miley out. So I made the girls matching bib-danas and the results were MORE adorable than I ever could have imagined.

Interested in making your sweetie and your pup some cute new accessories like these? Good thing it's a super simple craft!

For these sweet scarf bib-danas you will need:

Fabric with a fun print (or a gorgeous solid would work as well)
Playful trim in a coordinating color
Fabric Glue
Tape Measure

Optional: Snacks for your helpers!

You'll begin making these beauties by measuring your puppy's neck & your babe's neck. Then go ahead and cut out two evenly proportioned obtuse triangle shaped pieces from the fabric.

Next, you'll want to fold the longest part of the triangle over once or twice, depending on the size of your pup/babe. Secure this fold with little dots of glue so you know it'll stay in place.

Following that you'll want to measure, cut, place & glue the trim.

Let these beautiful creations dry & then it's time to wear them!

Now that your sweet babes have new bibs, maybe it's a good time to talk about some "eats" for them, as D would say!

Also, I'm loving that I'm able to grab both of their new favorites at Target when I take my weekly "me" time and go browse the aisles.

For Miley, we love to give her just what she wants, especially after a stressful week. What does she like lately? The Purina® ONE® Dog Smartblend Chicken & Rice formula.

Probably because it's made with real chicken as the first ingredient and it's blended with other sources of protein to make the perfect combination for my little pooches belly. Plus the omega-6's help brighten her skin and make her coat shine and since she's aging I love that includes glucosamine to help support healthy joints... and it may make her photobombing skills a little better too, as seen below. Haha!

As far as Delainey is concerned, we are always surprising her - today's surprise snacks include Gerber® goodies!

Her new favorite? The Organic Gluten Free Honey Flavored Biscuits! They're made for babies over one, so this was her first time to get to sample these honey biscuits and it's safe to say she's a HUGE fan. I'm a fan because they're organic, gluten free, and filling - what more could a baby (or mama) ask for in a snack?

But I can't dismiss the other items we added to her snack collection recently! We both are big fans of the Gerber Graduates Yogurt Melts Freeze-Dried Yogurt & Fruit Snacks too. They are the perfect snack to munch on during dress up or while we're just scooting around the house and with no preservatives, healthy-for-the-belly live and active cultures, and vitamins A, C and E, I think it's obvious why I'm a fan of these snack time treats for Delainey.

Lastly, but certainly not last in Delainey's book: the Gerber Grabbers Fruit and Yogurt Squeezable Puree in Strawberry Banana. D is a puree-fanatic already, nevermind combining two of her favorite fruits. The best part? These pouches feature Gerber's smart flow technology, making for less mess and less "oops" during snack. I love letting her little tiny hands take control, it's so crazy that she's big enough to handle that responsibility... but it's also so exciting.

Speaking of Gerber & exciting responsibilities, I feel like I have to clue you in on one last thing... The Gerber baby photo contest is NOW underway and to mix things up & keep things as fresh as their food, Gerber is also hosting a Wiggles & Giggles pet & sweet Delainey and Miley and I just had to show off in honor of this.

Want to get in on the Gerber baby fun? It's easy to enter! Get your name in the mix by posting a photo of your sweet kiddo on Instagram (must be a public account) using the hashtag #GerberPhotoSearch2017. You can post up to 10 times and earn your baby $50,000 for capturing the most precious pic. Don't fret, though. The search will be going on through 10/27, so you have plenty of time to get the perfect photo.

Plus, if snapping the perfect photo of your pup (or kitty) & your tiny tot together sounds like an additional challenge you want to take on, you can share a pic of your pooch and your babe, with the hashtags #GerberPhotoSearch2017 and #GerberGigglesandWiggles and get your name in the pool to win one in six $500 cash prize pack, a 1 year supply of baby food, and a 1 year supply of Purina pet food!
