It's Good Friday which means that Easter Sunday is right around the corner and if the Easter Bunny hasn't yet picked up the goodies he/she going to leave for your kiddos this weekend, time is of the essence!

We all love getting those classic shots of our kids with Santa, but what about the Easter Bunny? Have you ever headed to your local mall to get their photos taken with the Easter Bunny?

When my sweet lil' bubba was about 6 weeks old we discovered he had reflux and a dairy and soy sensitivity. I was nursing at the time, however, needed him to both nurse and take a bottle to allow for a smoother transition once I returned to work. After bottle feedings, we noticed LOTS of gas coming from our little guy and even more spit up than normal. We tried a variety of bottles as most new parents do, but it wasn't until we found the perfect bottle, the Philips Avent Anti-Colic Bottle, that we started...

Having your children reach the age where they are really excited and into Star Wars seems to be a major life milestone.
