Bubbers and The Bib

February 20th, 2008

A while back, I got an email from my friend, Lisa, who asked me a question.

Lisa is incredibly talented and recently started her own business where she makes and sells the most adorable baby bibs, burpies and aprons.

And somehow or other, she picked up on the fact that I have an obsession for taking pictures of Bubbers, so she proposed a fantastic idea for channeling this obsession into something with tangible benefits.

“If I send you a free bib, would you take pictures of Bubbers wearing it for me to put on my business website?” she asked me.

Not only did she use two of my all-time favorite words in the English language (“free” and “pictures”), but she also completely flattered me by the fact that she wanted to use Bubbers (my Bubbers!!) as a model for her website.

I was totally game and asked permission to post about it on my blog.

“No problem!” Lisa said, and we struck a deal!

Not long afterwards, we received the promised bib and I began planning the photo shoot…..

I dressed him in a yellow shirt and put him on the kitchen table with one of his spoons.

Then I got him to smile by teasing him with his spoon.

After that Charming put the spoon in his mouth for Bubbers to get.

Which is one of Bubbers’ favorite games!

After the shoot, I downloaded all the pictures to my computer and thought they were pretty cute.

But soon realized I didn’t like the look of the them as well as I’d hoped.

So I tapped my head and said, “Think, think, think.”

Then I did three more shoots until…..

KaZAM!! Now this is what I’m talking about!

Now you can really see Lisa’s bib and I preferred Bubbers’ blue shirt over the yellow.

So now let me say a few words about this top-notch bib…..

Not only does it turn Bubbers into a stylin’ little dude.

But it also rinses off like magic! (Seriously, after I fed him and it was covered in food, I rinsed it in the sink and all the food just slid right off).

And something I really love is how it folds up nice and small.

So it fits compactly into my diaper bag.

And hidden underneath is a soft layer of fabric that’s very gentle on Bubbers’ sensitive skin.

Which is a good thing, because ever since Bubbers launched his Sneak Attack yesterday morning, he’s been wearing it 24/7.

And we couldn’t be happier! :)

(Thanks, Lisa!!)

p.s. The only thing I might change about the bib is to have a pouch at the bottom to catch spilled food and liquid.

Nice bib! So, did this person know you from real life, or just from your blog? Bubbers makes a great model.

Cute pictures! Those bibs do sound really cool, but I agree with you that a pocket at the bottom would be nice, all of Preston’s bibs have those to catch the food. I hope Bubbers starts to feel better.
