Precious Moments

The first time you hear that heart beat, the first ultrasound, buying the first baby blankie, holding those tiny little fingers for the first time....babies mean plenty of Precious Moments to share and enjoy. They also mean plenty of shopping.
One thing I love almost as much as new babies is shopping for them. Those tiny tees, soft cuddly blankets, cute stuffed toys in a rainbow of soft pastel colors, just makes my heart melt. That's why I am pleased to be part in announcing the launch of a great online destination for adorable baby must haves, the Precious Moments Baby Boutique.
As a child I remember the darling little figurines of characters made by creator Sam Butcher. The tear-drop eyed faces have brought smiles to many for over 30 years, Precious Moments helps share the gift of love by celebrating life's most special moments, including welcoming new babies.

At Precious Moments Baby Boutique you will find a great selection of baby gifts and gear, from clothing and accessories to toys and bedding, and let us not forget the collectible figures. In addition to the Precious Moments brand you will also find a variety of items form trusted companies such as BabyBoom Consumer Products, Prestige Toy Corp, Luv'n Care, among others. I am confidant you will find the Precious Moments Baby Boutique a delightful place to shop for that special gift at that precious time.

Now for the icing on the cake. One lucky reader will win an adorable Precious Moments Baby animal crib toy. This little blue Hippo is just looking for a home and a precious baby to give it lots of love. To enter just follow a few easy steps.

  4.'s so hard to pick just one "most" precious moment...but if I HAD to choose (and seriously, with that blue hippo staring me in the face, I HAVE to choose ;)), it would be the very first time I got to hold my oldest daughter.I had an emergency c-section (general anesthesia), and, even though they gave me some polaroids, I wasn't able to actually see her and hold her until she was a little over a day old (I had some complications, and was pretty out of it with pain and a raging infections and wasn't until the next day that I had "recovered" enough to be wheeled to the NICU--she was only sent there as a precaution). I cried....she felt so warm, smelled so good, and she was "MINE" (all 8 lb 1oz of her!)! It was honestly surreal...I had only ever held one other baby in my life,so this was such a new sensation. All the birthing classes, all the books that were read (dozens!), and all the advice---NOTHING (and nobody!) can prepare you for what that precious moment feels like to hold your very first child for the very first time :). Sorry it was so wordy :). I facebook shared you!/mykatzrphat , and my absolute favorite item is the Bless The Day You arrived figurine !

    My most Precious Moment was when my mom gave me my first Precious Moments bible as a kid. I've kept it and will pass it on to my little ones when I have kids someday. For now, if I win, this little hippo will go to my sister. She is pregnant with her second child!

    My favorite item from the Precious Moments baby boutique is the Precious Moments: Precious Moments Nature's Babies 4 Piece Crib Bedding Set.

    I posted on Facebook to my profile, but I don't know how to post the exact link other than my facebook page.
