THANKS to PAXfriend Marisol H, for the adorable VICE VERSA in action photo! See more on the go VV here at PAXbaby’s Facebook page!

You’ve seen the wrap, you’ve loved the design from afar, you’ve heard of this idyllic unicorn, perhaps you’ve never lain eyes on her before in person… but all of you are here now because YOU LOVE VICE VERSA! Here is a poem dedicated to the lovely VV penned by enthusiastic PAXfan, Sara L! Enjoy!

How do I love VV?
Let me count the ways.
I love VV for its warp and weft and weave
Soft brand-new, like you can barely believe
Its stunning jeweltones, the way the colors are so bold.
My love for VV is worth its weight in gold.
Enough to write poems about it every day
And pray the ISO Angels will see fit to send one my way.

PAXrecipe for Perfect Parfait!

PAXbaby.com

There’s been record breaking heat here in SoCal the last week or so and cooking with a hot oven on has sounded less appealing as each day comes with new highs and not very low lows! Today I made {almost} all my kids happy by whipping up this yummy and, more importantly, COLD snack! Filled with protein AND fruit, these Perfect Parfaits were so easy to make and even easier to eat!

#babycate is teething!

PAXbaby.com

My sweet, adorable, precious #babycate is teething. My usual happy & energetic baby girl is listless & sad, unable to to console, and obviously in pain! I had a peek at her upper gums, and oh my, that looks just as awful as she sounds! Breastfeeding, cuddling, and taking it slow will help her feel better, but you know what else will too? Essential oils!!! Do Terra to the rescue, I dabbed a little lavender mixed with fractionated coconut oil on the soles of #babycate’s wee feet & watched her mood immediately change! Perking up, she crawled away from me & began to babble in her baby voice a thankful exclamation! The teeth may still be pushing on her gums, but the lavender oil was able to comfort & soothe!

Whistle while you wrap

PAXbaby.com

Cate Valentina

PAXbaby.com

Just like a dog can smell fear, your baby knows when you are nervous about a new baby carrier! Try taking a deep breath and talk it out with your child! Run through the steps before you attempt the technique, and as you perform the steps, try whistling to set your mind at ease! Your baby will think you know what you are doing and will relax which will then help you to stay calm! Not a whistler!?! Try humming, singing, or chanting, “I can do it, I can do it!” Positive thinking will help you succeed; after this mini pep talk, all you need to do is go and

DO IT!!!

Austin Powers babywears!?!

PAXbaby.com

Have well meaning relatives or nosy neighbor commented on your new luscious baby carrier or the number of packages arriving on your doorstep?!? Have you felt the need to say in a British accent, “It’s not mine, baby!!!” I think Austin Powers expressed exactly how we feel sometimes when we are asked to justify “needing just one more!”

PAXbaby.com

austin powers meme

 PAXbaby.com

Instead of giving into the temptation of giving a  terrible Mike Meyers impression, try one of these phrases instead :

“I’m giving USPS a reason to stay in business” – in regards to the many packages being delivered!

“I am supporting WAHMs” – in regards to why you ordered a new carrier!

“It’s totally different” – in regards to another rainbow carrier!
“I am going to sell the other one” – in regards to a growing stash!

“I like your new hiking/ biking/ sports gear” – in regards why you deserve some new fluff too!

Try a few of these phrases on for size or use your own! If you have gotten creative with your replies, comment here so we can use it next time!
