98 Degrees and climbing

Today is hot!!! Sunny and hot. My husband described the breeze as feeling like he is in the heat using a blow dryer, while on his lunch break. I thought it was a great day to hit a pool.. Luckily we got an invite and ran with the opportunity.

Logan had his first swim in a big pool. He was so stinking adorable. I had him sporting BePe Baby wear and I must say he was the cutest kid in the pool. ;)

The hat kept his head from the sun but was light and breathable at the same time and the bottoms dried super quick in the sun so they worked great as a pool bottom for us!!

Tomorrow is supposed to be just as hot and sunny again. Stay cool!!!!

Construction and Baby Don't mix

So we are on Day 2 of building the deck. Well day 1 of the real construction. Logan isn't napping with all the noise and he is sad as all heck. :( Rubbing his eyes and crying like mad. This is not helping with getting any work done around here.

This should take four days but I might be crazy by the end of it.. We are trying the second nap in the pack and play in my room with the AC on and the TV playing. He is still talking and squawking after 10 min so it is not looking hopeful. Nap #3 will be in the car for sure. I just need to figure out where we can drive to for an hour :)

Sugar Scrubs

I just wanted to say that I have been loving my sugar scrub
I have used it almost every day for the last week and my skin feel so soft. Pregnancy makes bumps and prickles everywhere. This has helped tremendously. I gave one to a friend last week and she was so excited. They smell so yummy. You should try one. This is my new favorite product for the week..

BePe Baby


My name is Christina Bentley. I am the owner of BePe Baby and new and upcoming site hosting hand-made gifts for babies, toddlers and moms. The site launched on Wed. June 6th and I have been a mad woman loading all of the products on the site since.

A little about me. I was teaching Elementary special education At SEEM Collaborative. I had a moderate to severe classroom of children ages 6 - 9. I had a baby in August 2006, who had reflux and food sensitivities and decided to stay home with him. I miss my classroom and my job tremendously but also love being here with my son. I am also due to have child #2 in Dec. so plan to stay busy for a few years at home.

I have a small circle of friends who have had babies recently and I am also a member of a few pregnancy and baby chat boards where I had met a lot of women in the same spot as me. From those friends and boards I was able to see what all the "hip" moms liked and wanted now that baby was here. After a few months I was getting antsy to do something so I bought a sewing machine and my mother taught me to sew. I started making and selling baby booties (that would stay on those tiny feet). After getting a great response I ventured out and continued to try other items. Hats, outfits, shopping cart covers, diaper roll-ups (small diaper organizer) and my friends and family loved them and where super supportive.

That is when I decided to open a website of my own. It took a few months to get done with the help of my mother (designing the art) and the website designer (for building my site). Now it is here and I am so ready to sell. Come and check out the site and tell me what you think.
