Item #1: This snap tee is genius when your child begins picking out their own clothes. Plus, at $28, it's a great deal because you are really getting 4 shirts in 1! If you have time, browse the Mahar Drygoods site. There are a LOT of cute things floating around.

Item #2: Two items from one of my favorite toy companies, EEBOO. The first is a candy matching game for $14.95. I love colors, and, for those of you who know me, know that I also LOVE all things sweet, particularly candy. Perfect!
EEBOO also has darling growth charts for $16.95. I like this one for its girly, whimsical vibe.
Item #3: Two words: Petit Collage. I know I've posted about this company before, but now the artist, Lorena Siminovich, sells prints that are within my budget. Hooray!
Item #4: Emi has a couple of these plushies, but this set is adorable. It's being sold at giggle for $30, both on-line and in their stores. They are made out of 100% organic cotton and are wonderful for teething babies.
Item #5: A manicure is a major splurge for me. Since Emi's arrival, it has been hard to sneak away unless a babysitter (like my parents or sister) are called in advance. Recently, however, my friend introduced me to Mani+Nanny.
At this spot in San Francisco, you can get a manicure while someone watches your little one. Genius! If you are worried about leaving your child in someone else's care, Mani+Nanny has a flat screen monitor that allows you to watch what your child is doing. It's a bit pricey, $20 for a manicure, plus $10 for the nanny, but saves you from having to coordinate with a babysitter.
Item #6: Last, but not least, I had to add these because I'm still not sure what to think of them. Yes, they are cute, but at $35, ouch! I guess it's all in the name of fashion. Heelarious? I'll let you decide.
At the end of the day, I decided to keep my $30. Instead of splurging on one of these items, I added it to Emi's college savings account, also known as her "therapy fund" in our house.
