Launch Day Love…a guest post by AP of I Love You More than Carrots!
Congratulations, Peekawhoo! I’m so ridiculously excited for the launch of Kelley and Heather’s brand new site. I mean, I’m as excited as one can be for the journey and success that has befallen two of my favorite people on the Internet that I have yet to meet in real life. In fact, I’m totally popping a bottle of champagne for you as I type so I apologize in advance for any misspellings that may follow. That said, Kelley and Heather have been so much more than just the minds, hearts and hands behind Peekawhoo these last 3 and a half years- they’ve been an integral part of so many of the special moments in not only the lives of my three children but also the lives of many of my girlfriends who found themselves unwrapping a little bit of Peekawhoo to celebrate both the big and little moments in the lives of their children.
And I know I don’t speak only for myself when I say that! Thanks to the wonders of social media, I’ve been privy to the hundreds of thousands of moments just like the ones described above- moments from all over the world- that have welcomed a little bit of Peekawhoo into their hearts and homes. Of all my favorite Peekawhoo moments, and trust me when I say there are many, I’d have to say there’s a tie for ultimate favorite. It’s difficult to top bringing our brand new freshie babe, our third and last little baby, home from the hospital in a sweet and timeless monogrammed gown but what runs a close second is the fever caused by ZOMG, MONOGRAMMED JELLYCAT BUNNIES!!! You thought the hubub over Amazon Prime Day was crazy? You should have seen the frenzy that first befell Peekawhoo when they unveiled the uber popular monogrammed Jellycat Bunny. I have never seen the Internet in such a tizzy over a stuffed bunny but as soon as we got our hands on one, I understood the attraction, almost enough to warrant ordering one for myself. I settled, however, on being only marginally less crazy and now each of my three boys has one. Plus one extra, just in case. That may or may not sleep in my bed.
One of the new and improved functions of the brand spankin’ new Peekawhoo website is the addition of the Jellycat Bunny button, simplifying the way in which bunnies find their ways into homes all over the world. From baby shower gifts to Easter basket fillers, these bunnies make the perfect gift and have been one of my absolute favorites to give year after year after year. Just look at the expression on my littlest boy’s face:
What’s more, Peekawhoo is beginning to offer more and more products tailored to the wants and needs of all the special moms in your life so be sure to check back often to see what’s in store. No, really. Do it or else you may have to suffer the wrath of Collins (above). Just look at that face!
Kelley and Heather, thank you for sharing your gifts, time and talents with us. You are appreciated much more than you know, I’m sure much more than you give yourselves credit for. From homecomings, first birthdays, to beach outings, Easter baskets and beyond, you continually bring smiles to the faces of all who Peekawhoo. Even though this baby bodega is closed for good, you can count on me to spread the Peekawhoo love far and wide for years to come.
After all, I sleep with a monogrammed bunny.
