Sticky Bellies Milestone Stickers Review!

I recently had a chance to review the Sticky Bellies Milestone Stickers! My husband, children, and I loved them! We took a few great photos! I was just planning on just me being in the photos, but the kids wanted to touch my belly and check out the sticker that was on it! Sticky Bellies were created by a Mom, for Moms!

No one has seen any belly shots of me yet. These are the first ones that have been taken. We took a lot of belly shots while I was pregnant with our son, and a few with my daughter. But this time, we get to take them using our Sticky Bellies Milestone Stickers! They come off of the paper they are attached to, and they easily go right back on too! I might try to reuse them to help mark milestones and take photos of our baby girl in her some cute onesies, or purchase the Sticky Bellies Milestone Monthly Stickers for Baby Girls!

The Sticky Bellies monthly milestone stickers are available for purchase on their website, from 1 to 12 months, 13 to 24 months, and the Expectant Moms packs for only $14.99 per pack! They also love it when you share your photos with them via email or on their Facebook page of you or your little ones with their Sticky Bellies Stickers!

Sticky Bellies Milestone Stickers are:
  • A more stylish and convenient alternative to homemade signs, a more economical alternative to expensive custom onesies
  • Removable stickers can be used in a scrapbook or photo album after photographed
  • Opaque, heavy-duty stickers can be applied to any garment
  • A simple way to ensure you are documenting each milestone - from pregnancy through the toddler years with style and ease
  • A unique baby gift that will outlast the others - a year of stickers and a lifetime of memories

The Sticky Bellies Story:

When my own daughter was born, I knew I had to document and celebrate her growth by taking a monthly photo and keep with the family tradition of having a special shirt for her to wear. It would allow me to know how old she was in the pictures and make for adorable pictures to share with family and friends  in online photo albums and on Facebook. Unfortunately (or fortunately), I had neither the time nor the skill required to make twelve custom appliqued onesies for my newborn daughter and knew there had to be an easier way. The pre-made custom onesies I found were expensive, especially when they would only be worn on ONE day for a brief five-minute photo shoot.

Sitting in our living room one night and thinking back fondly on the tacky sweatsuits of my youth, I said to my husband, "Someone needs to create something that would LOOK like it was an permanent applique, but could be removed after the picture is done without ruining the shirt." His brilliant, life-changing response..."Why don't you?" For dramatic effect, I'll tell you that lightning struck, rainbows appeared, glitter fell from the ceiling and the Sticky Bellies logo suddenly appeared on my living room wall.

That was the moment.

"I'm a New Big Sister" - Little Steps for Big Kids - Children's Book Review!

I had never heard about this book until I started looking for one to help prepare my two and a half year old daughter for the arrival of her new baby sister, due in July. It's called "I'm a New Big Sister." It talks about how things will change when her little sister is born, and tells little girls how her baby sister won't be able to play with her right away, but someday she will. It also shows the big sister helping her parents with the baby and how important it is to keep their toys picked up so that the baby won't get hurt on them. It especially shows the little girl how when the baby is sleeping, that her mommy and daddy spend special alone time with just her! I really enjoy this book and I really enjoy reading it to Chloe. I have been reading it to her every night for the past week, and my four and a half year old son loves it to.

You can purchase this book on Amazon for only $6.99!

They also have "I'm a New Big Brother" book!

Thank you to Little Steps For Big Kids (Now I'm Growing) Series of books for toddlers and children. This book is well written and great for teaching my children what to expect when their baby sister is born!

Disclosure: I didn't receive anything for reviewing this book. I bought it online and wanted to share it with you, my readers.

My Summer Wish List:


3) Green Toys Dump Truck (Red/Yellow and the Pink/Purple one)



I posted these things because I was searching Amazon and thought, what things could help us to have a Great Summer? I came up with these MUST HAVE items for our family this summer!
