I have to be honest…when I first found out I was having a little dude I got all scared! My pre-Gunner self was never very impressed with little boy clothes. In my mind I always thought boy clothes were Winnie the Pooh overalls and helicopter shirts. I never had to venture into the boys department so little did I know that little guy clothes were as cute as they were! I’ve made a complete 180 and am in LOVE with tiny man threads! Nothing cuter then a dapper little guy! I’ve gotten over my fear of he boy clothing section and have quickly fallen in love with little shopping for Gunner and seeing everything I’ve been missing out on. Plaids and stripes and cargo pants, oh my!
Our house is filled with books but for the last 10 years we’ve been reading about princesses, ponies and fairies! With a little dude now in tow it’s time to start getting my feet wet in the super hero, din0saur and truck department! I’ve been loving all the new finds and recommendations I’ve been getting and just had to pass on my growing list of wants and haves for my little guy…
I can not begin to tell you how much I adore this first book! The cover caught my eye at a book store and the story made me laugh out load! It’s my new favorite gift to give at a baby shower and everyone needs to add it to their library but any little boy would eat this story up! Children make terrible pets by Peter Brown is my #1 new favorite children’s book!
My sister-in-law sent Gunner this darling book that I adore! Indestructibles: Baby Faces! These books ar ejust like they say: Indestructible! They are made out of cool material that is drool, dribble, chew and rip proof, perfect for the early reader and grabber in your family.

Magic Tree House books are all about adventures! This series is fantastic for boys and girls but the adventure part of it all is a great appeal for any boy ready to take on a dinosaur, join in with Knights and conquer Mummies!
