Happy Birthday, Baby Toolkit!

This week Baby Toolkit turned ONE!

We started this blog because strangers always asked about our baby gear, and I was getting tired of writing (and remembering) URLs and product details. So, we created a blog. That way I could give out our blog address rather than having to remember individual details.

I was floored when Parent Hacks first referenced us last November, but eager for more.

Thanks to all our new friends for a year's worth of inspiration, encouragement, and insight. We're so glad you're here.

We'd like to give away a deluxe Diaper Valet set to a valued reader: Diaper Valet, changing pad, and handle (optional, of course). Just leave a comment (and your name tagged with a linking email address or URL) to enter. We'll accept entries through the end of August, 2007 and will randomly draw for a winner. The only people who can't enter are Mo, Jim, me, Ranger, and our immediate family.

Thanks for a great year!

Happy Birthday!! I love the blog and would also love a diaper valet. SWEET. Babe is getting bigger now, but it would be so nice to go back to a real purse and the diaper valet as a side kick when baby is in tow.
Keep up the good work on the site of course! Love it.

I'd love to enter the drawing for the valet! I am a newbie to Baby Toolkit, but I am a BIG, BIG fan already. :0) Keep up the great work....I'm going to keep reading!

Happy Birthday to Baby Toolkit!

I've been wanting a valet but haven't had the budget yet. That would be AWESOME!

Happy Birthday, Baby Toolkit! Can you believe that BabyGeek has already grown into Ranger? It's been fun reading your reviews, except that I still only have 6 juice-carton blocks made, I need to enlist the relatives! ;)

I'm LOVING your blog, with a 10 month old and 3 year old, your blog is a must read. Please keep on doin' whatcha doin!

You already know that I love your blog. But this anniversary business makes me look on the ball for the mild gushing I did in my last blog entry. I love your site and your valet. And since I already won one in another contest, I guess I'll let the others have a chance :). Great job and keep up the good work.

Loved the review on the sidekick...I was really tempted to buy one...maybe when baby no. 2 comes along they'll have upgraded it.
