Okay so you know how much I love to shop for my kids. I am constantly posting pictures with my favorite brands on Instagram (@Izabella_Tovar). I love to support small/handmade shops. What I love even more than shopping tons of different handmade brands is being able to shop my favorite handmade brands all at the same place. This is rare because most baby stores don't carry the handmade/small shops that I love for my kids. That's why when I found The Baby Cubby I was so excited. The Baby Cubby is a local store to me but they also have an online storefront where you can buy everything. Some of the brands they carry include:

  • Tubby Todd
  • Rags to Raches
  • Babylit Books
  • Bannor Toys
  • Billy Bibs
  • Briar Handmade
  • Freshly Picked
  • Gathre Mats
  • June & Penny
  • Little Mr. Bow Ties
  • Lorena Canals Rugs
  • Lulu & Roo
  • Piper Finn
  • & much more!
They also have the most modern car seats, high chairs, strollers, cribs, baby carriers, nursery decor. It's literally a one-stop shop. It does not get any better than this folks. Such an amazing store.

( I challenge you to go to their website and search for your favorite baby brand or product. I can almost guarantee they will carry it. Once you search, report back here and tell me if they carry it in the comments below. )

What I love most about The Baby Cubby is how different they are from every other baby store. It's not just a retail chain store. It is the epitome of modern parenthood. On their website you can find the most adorable, highest quality baby gear as well as a blog with helpful tips about the journey through parenthood and occasional deals on their products. The Baby Cubby is a network of modern brands brought together into a community of shopping and parenting.

I asked the folks over at The Baby Cubby to tell us a little bit about their company and here's what they said...

The Baby Cubby is for every parent out there who has ever felt overwhelmed or discouraged about becoming a parent. Our Baby Cubby team is made up of parents who have been there, we know what it’s like and we are passionate about encouraging, inspiring, and reminding parents how amazing they are and how important their role is.  

The way we do that is by finding the best and safest baby gear and providing it to parents in a fun shopping experience where we do things like test strollers on our stroller track, price match everyday - even amazon, offer free shipping nationwide at and actively engage with parents via social media and our cubby community blog to discuss some of those hard topics of parenting.
You can read a little bit more about what we're passionate about and why we do what we do on our about us page here -

- We always price match, even amazon, so you know you're getting a great deal
- We carry only the best and safest gear so you can shop confidently (we spend hundreds of hours researching so you don't have to)
- Free Shipping everyday at over $49

Did you catch that last part, free shipping? Yes please.

See, I told you they are amazing. If you haven't already click on this link to visit their website to check it out for yourself. I promise you won't be disappointed.

I apologize I'm late in posting these. September through December is such a crazy time of year for us, as I'm sure it is for everyone! But even though it's two months late I had to share these pictures of Anastazia's cake smash with you. They are too gorgeous to not share. I am so glad we had Lori Romney take these photos for us. As I've said in the past, she is the best. She is so talented and fun to work with. We had a two part photo shoot, first a tea party with her favorite dolls, and then her cake smash. Anastazia had no interest in the cake basically whatsoever because it didn't taste very yummy, but at least it looks pretty!

Hey there! It's been awhile. I keep telling myself I am going to blog more regularly. Then I put it off until tomorrow and then the next day and the next day. Anyway, I felt it was time for an update and reintroduction! We just got our pictures taken by Lori Romney Photography and I love to post cute pictures so I figured what better way to reintroduce my family to you then with some family photos?

Okay so just incase you're new here, I'm Izabella. I have two beautiful children, Henry and Anastazia. Henry recently turned five and Anastazia recently turned one. I am engaged to their father, Jairo. Technically we have been engaged for over five years, but hey who's counting? We really aren't sure when we're getting married. It's not that we don't want to. Life just goes by so quickly that we keep putting it off. Jairo works full time and I do daycare with my mom. I am also a full time student at the University of Utah where I am majoring in Psychology and planning to apply for medical school in the near future. We live in the mountains of Utah and love it here. Henry is in pre-K 4 this year and is loving it. Anastazia is growing up so fast. She says about 10 words right now but she doesn't walk yet. Our doctor always says "early talker, late walker." If you follow me on Instagram you probably know all this, but I hope you enjoyed the update anyways. Another fun fact about me, I love shopping small. Most of the clothes and toys I buy for my kids and our friends are from Instagram shops. I plan to shop small this Christmas again, so if you have any suggestions or if you have a shop you want me to know about, let me know!

If you have any other questions or comments, leave a comment below. Thanks for reading! And please don't steal my photos. All photo credit goes to: Lori Romney Photography

In honor of Henry Week I thought I would post some pictures of Henry's previous birthday parties. This post is dedicated to his first birthday party which was a red and blue circus/carnival party. This is the only party I don't have nice pictures of because it was before I had a nice camera and I had friends and families with nice cameras. So unfortunately I only have a few cellphone camera pictures with watermarks (taken from my Facebook page) to share for this party! But I promise the other three parties have much nicer pictures. ;)

Here is a letter I wrote to my baby on his first birthday. Keep reading to see photos!

Dear Enrique,

Today is your first birthday. I honestly can't believe that you are one year old already! Where does the time go?

You have changed so much in this past year it is unbelievable. You are now independent, you don't sleep 20 out of 24 hours a day, you love to dance to music, you babble all the time, you crawl all over the place and are just so much fun to be around! I must admit though, part of me misses when you were a newborn and I could just sit and snuggle you all day long! But, you are so much fun to play with now. 

People say that babies get easier as they grow up, but those people clearly don't have kids. You were definitely a lot easier as a newborn, you hardly every cried and mostly slept all day. Now you keep us all on our toes, we don't know what you will get into next, and you are constantly busy! But, I wouldn't trade it for the world. 

Anyways, your birthday happened to land on a Saturday this year, which was perfect for your party! I started planning your party in June and it turned out so well! It was a carnival theme. We rented a bouncy house/ slide and the cutest cotton candy machine, popcorn machine, and snow cone machine. We also reserved a balloon animal maker and a face painter, but they ended up not coming because they got lost. Then we got 100 gold fish from the pet store and put them in your baby pool, then we got little fish nets for guests to fish out their own goldfish to take home. Mama even put together the cutest little fish bowls for people to take home with them. She also made favor bags by putting a giant lollipop and other small goodies in thick popcorn bags. They were super cute! Just to make sure that no one went home empty handed, we even had giant licorice ropes in a box labeled "lion tamer whips". 

For food we had pretzels, nachos and cheese and hot dogs with buns (true carnival food). We also specially ordered these really neat coke, diet coke, and sprite bottles because I liked the look of them. We made 72 red velvet cupcakes and Mormor made you a red velvet cake and frosted it herself. We ended up with probably 40 left over cupcakes! Oh well, they are delicious. I think everyone really enjoyed your party, you included! You especially loved opening your presents. The funny thing is that you wouldn't even touch your cake unless it was on a spoon! You have such great little manners already.

I love you so much Enrique, and so do daddy, mama, papa, and Tio Sebastian.
