Happy Birthday to my sweet baby!

I can't believe its already here. 2 years ago I was tossing and turning in my bed because I was going to have a baby in a few short hours! Baby Kieran was born via c-section on April 8th, 2009 @ 7:51am (due to being footling breach, and too risky to try a version). She weighed in at 6lbs 13ox and 19(or 19.5 I forget long. She took to breastfeeding like a champ, while I was in recovery still! We had some issues with her weight and latching after leaving the hospital but we pulled through and I'm proud to say that we nursed till she SELF weened in January of this year at 21½ months old!

Happy Birthday to my sweet, silly, goofy, lefty, dancing girly!

Mohawk Rug Review and Giveaway

I was reproached by someone from Mohawk rugs last month about doing a review and giveaway on the blog. I was super excited to be given this chance, especially with moving to a new house. Kieran finally has her own room after almost 2yrs of sharing ours so we've been excited to decorate it and adding in the rug to review was awesome and perfect timing.

Here is some information about the nursery rugs:
-They are made with a new technology in yarn that is very soft to the touch, perfect for a baby or childs room
-Latex backing provides non skid surface for all hard surfaces or it works great to keep the rug in place on carpet
-Made from 100% Nylon. Nylon rugs are easy to take care of, they spot clean easily but you can also wash the 40"x60" size in a front load commercial washer
-Made in the USA

We got our rug on March 18th, just 2 days after moving in (review up a little late sorry!), and I waited a couple days to open it since we were still getting things organize. The first thing I noticed before opening it was how big it looked which I was excited about. Next thing I noticed was the colors, really nice and neutral to any color scheme in a girls room (I choose a brown and pink rug). Kieran's room right now is flowers, butterflies, and Tinkerbell and done in light purple, blue, and pink. The pink and brown striped rug we received for review works really well in her room.

When I laid the rug out, with the help of the kiddos, I was excited to see and feel how soft it was (so was Seamus!). I figured that the softness would go away after a couple days of walking on it and Kieran playing on it. I was super surprised and excited to see how soft it was after a few days and even now after 2 weeks of use its still just as soft as when I laid it out! I change Kieran's diaper on the rug before bed and she loves to feel the rug while laying there, I think most carpet and rugs are rough on babies but this one is nice a soft.

I think these rugs would be awesome in any nursery or child's room. They're nice and soft, and complement many decorating schemes, and a nice size too.

Mohawk has been kind enough to offer one of my readers the chance to win a rug! Winner will get the choice of rug, and size (40"x60" and a 60"x84" (5'x7').
