I See Me! Personalized Children’s Books {Review and Giveaway PLUS Coupon Code}

I wrote this post on behalf of I See Me! Personalized Children’s Books and received a promotional item to thank me for my time.  All opinions regarding I See Me and the All – Star book are my own and were not influenced by outside sources.

Books starring your own child?  Yes!  That’s exactly what I See Me! personalized children’s books are all about.  With colorful illustrations and your child’s picture and name throughout the book, they will definitely feel special.  Big C sure did!

I See Me! books are so easy to create.  I simply sent in a picture and filled in information about Big C. Then, less then 2 weeks later, we received her All-Star book.  This book teaches your all-star tips on being a good sport.

Even if your little one isn’t in to sports, there are many other personalized books to choose from, including The Super, Incredible Big Brother or Sister, My Very Own Pirate’s Tale and My Very Happy Birthday.  And they would make great birthday, baby or Christmas gifts, too!

One of my favorite features about choosing an I See Me! book, is that I can choose from the themes I’m looking for and take a tour of the book.  This helps me to know exactly what I’m getting and decide if that’s the right book for the occasion.

You can purchase the same personalized book Big C received for $29.95 or choose from a variety of other personalized products, such as, lunch boxes, puzzles, coloring books, placemats, stickers and growth charts.  Receive 10% off your purchase of the All – Star book using the coupon code ALLSTAR.  But hurry, offer ends 7/31/14.

Stay connected with I See Me! on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and Google+ for all their latest products and discounts.  You can also receive their newsletter right to your inbox.  I See Me! is giving away a copy of the All-Star personalization book to one reader.  Simply fill in the Rafflecopter form below to enter.  Open to US residents only.

At Two Months

Yup, it’s been two months since our little guy was born.  And I have to admit, they have been long and tiring two months.

What’s new with Little M:

He weighs almost 11 pounds and is 21 inches long.

He still has his days and nights switched, waking about every 2 to 3 hours to eat.  I don’t get much sleep these days.
He’s been seeing a chiropractor for his reflux issues and we’ve seen a big improvement.

Hush Little Baby is his favorite lullaby.  

What’s new with Big C:
She’s potty trained!!!  This has been a huge struggle for us and I had to resort to bribery, but it worked!
Her vocabulary and imagination are ever increasing.  
Because of her active imagination, she’s become afraid of the dark.  Daddy bought her a special flash light after she was screaming at the wall in the middle of the night with big, bold tears in her eyes.

Mommy Of Two

No one could have prepared me enough before my first child was born.  My life and my heart drastically changed once she entered this world.  It was extremely hard for me.  But totally worth it all. And I couldn’t imagine my life any other way.

Preparing for number 2, I thought I had it all figured out.  I told myself I wouldn’t worry as much because I’ve already been through it all.  But I was so wrong.

Trying to balance my attention and the needs of a newborn and toddler is something I’m still trying to figure out.  And the worrying, yeah, it hasn’t gone away.

Little M is so different from Big C as an infant.  He is a preemie with severe reflux issues and congestion.  We have been trying everything to figure out the cause of this sweet, little boy’s projectile vomiting with only minimal results and loads of laundry.  

2 is challenging but that is the season I’m in.  Sleepless and taking it day by day.

2014 Ultimate Blog Party

Ultimate Blog Party 2014

Who likes to party?  Being a mom to an infant and toddler, this is about the only way I know how to party right now . . . a blog party, in my pj’s and eating ice cream.  Who is with me?

If you are new here, I’m Mandi and this is where I brag about my kids, Big C and Little M.  Both of these kids are my sweet tiny blessings who entered this world in a courageous way.  (Click the links to read their stories).

I also enjoy sharing my faith, passion for healthy living and reviewing my favorite products.  You’ll often find fun giveaways in my right hand side bar.   

Tell me a little about yourself and where you blog!
