Ivy Makes A Mess

Ivy crawled over to the kitchen and was awful quiet for several moments. Sitting so still with her back to me... I knew something was up. I grabbed my camera and snuck around from behind her.

She'd found something very interesting on the floor.

And it tasted a leetle funny...

Wowzers!


And then she found it was more fun to paint with.


So, what was it?

Any guesses?


For fun I'll pick one comment at random (it doesn't have to be the correct guess!) to win an Aden+Anais Muslin Sleeping Bag - I'm crazy about the Aden+Anais wraps and am swooning over the new sleeping bags. They are extra warm and cozy and are made from the same 100% cotton muslin used for the awesome swaddling blankets.

Let me know in the comments what you think made all that mess, and also if you'd like to win the sleeping bag, let me know which print and size [edited to add: I've posted the size chart in the comments! Basically s: 0-6, m: 6-12, l: 12-18, xl: 18-24] you'd like!

I'll choose one comment at random after 11:59 PM Saturday June 6 and announce it here on Sunday. I'll also link to any correct guesses, too!

Contest has ended- winner posted here!

This contest was inspired by one of my favorite blogs- 4 Little Men & Girly Twins. I always get so excited to see what she'll post every day. Brittany is an absolute sweetheart and her beautiful children are so blessed.

  1. Whoo, look at that face! I'm going to guess it was a blackberry? The fruit, not the electronic device.

  2. I keep hearing how awesome their swaddle blankets are. I'm so mad I didn't pick some up for my SIL when they were on sale on BabySteals this week. They make me wish my buddy was still swaddle-able.

  3. Blueberries!!

    Love her expressions, priceless!

    Yes quiet is never a good thing unless its nap time. My girls teach me that every day :).

  4. You did one of the things I've learned as a mom blog writer. If there's silence, don't forget the camera.

    A blueberry. That's what it definitely looks like to me.

    Fish print in xlarge if I were to win.

  5. I am guessing blueberries. We have had a lot of messy blueberry moments at our house.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I would have to say blackberries, they make me pucker like that, too!

    ReplyDelete
  7. First of all, can we discuss that girl's wardrobe -- I want it for myself. She is cuter and cuter every day.

    And I say blackberries.

    And I want to win the elephant sleeping bag.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I have to go with a blackberry. I think the taste pick is so cute. I have never heard of this brand before is there stuff worth the money?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Looks like a Blackberry, possibly a blueberry.

    Thanks for your blog. i just recently found it and I love checking in everyday.

    ReplyDelete
  10. i want to say that it looks like raspberries or some sort of fruit?

    cute!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I'm guessing a cherry! :-) Love that expression LOL

    ReplyDelete
  12. Bobbi- I have to say YES. They are really worth it. I have given them as gifts and received as gifts... such wonderful quality and really the best baby blanket, nursing cover up, play mat, etc. They are nice & soft and big. And if you have a baby that loves to be swaddled tight- these are the best!

  13. It looks like grape jelly to me :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. I am thinking red raspberry. I too know the moment when you realize a little one is being a little too quiet. So much fun!
    I would like a fish sleeping bag in large.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  16. She's too cute! Was it jam?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Well since I already know the answer, I will just say that you captured her in such a funny way. I love her expression! She may have just invented a new fingerpaint. Do you need help shampooing the carpet?

    ReplyDelete
  18. It looks like a cherry, but you definitely wouldn't want her eating pits so I'd say it's a raspberry.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hmm I say blueberries.
    I would want the pink butterflies if I won. But how do you figure out what size you need??? She's currently in 6 to 9 mths.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Blackberry! My little one made that same face with mango! Haha!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Jennifer (jenniferfetterman@yahoo.com)June 03, 2009 6:52 AM

    It's a blackberry. I have no doubt.

    Oh - and I'd like the fish print in a large... that's if I win!!-)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Maybe a blackberry?

    I love the plain white sleeping bag. I'm so partial to pure white, even though it's not always the smartest for a baby!

    ReplyDelete
  23. love it! I'm going to say blackberry jelly?

    what a great mess!

    britt

    ReplyDelete
  24. It looks like she found a blackberry. I have seen that look on a baby face when my daughter tried one too.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I am going with blueberry and heck yes I would love to win one of those sleeping bags for my little one! What a great site - thanks! Love the shot of Ivy tasting the fruit - so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm going for blackberry.. my little one makes the same face!

    you should try pickles next.. those are the best faces too!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I think it's a blackberry too. Yum!

    We like the fish sleeping bag, and I think my littlest might be a medium - I couldn't find size info.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Was it a cranberry? That is such a funny face-seems like it was something tart! And I would LOVE to win the butterfly one in Med, my best friend just adopted a little girl and it would be SO FUN to win that for her! And where is that outfit from that Ivy is wearing? She has THE CUTEST clothes!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I am thinking a raspberry! Her expression is hilarious!! Quiet always means something is up!!

    The fish sleeping bag in size xlarge would be perfect! What a lovely giveaway, thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm guessing a blueberry, too. Thanks so much! :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. A blueberry! Possibly one that had been frozen?

    So cute! I'm new to your blog and loving it.

    I love the blue stars print. My baby is 10 months, so I'm not sure which size (couldn't find a size chart on the site).

    ReplyDelete
  32. I bought her outfit from Tea Collection and if you "Like" her photo here on Facebook, she could win a gift certificate for more clothes!

    Steph

    ReplyDelete
  33. My first guess was jam....blackberry jam. And I love the bee sleeping sack! I love that you decided to take pics of the whole thing rather than freaking out over the mess.....that way we all got to see the cuteness!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Looks like blackberries to me! :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I would guess grape or blueberry jelly, but I don't know why that would inspire such a face! She is so sweet.

    ReplyDelete
  36. How funny! I'm going to guess raspberries.

    ReplyDelete
  37. A berry of some sort, maybe a berry jam? Boysenberry or blackberry? Maybe?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh, I just discovered your blog today and how can a person resist that adorable baby of yours?! I'll definitely be stopping back to see what you are up to! As for what she's investigating (and I LOVE the 'wowzer' pic by the way!) I am guessing blackberry or maybe boysenberry. Truly, what a great moment to capture on camera.

    My little one would love the blue elephants should we win!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Looks like boysenberry jam to me! And you let her paint it on the carpet?! You are too brave!

    ReplyDelete
  40. What a fun face! Was it a blueberry?
    I'd love a blue stars muslin sleeping bag too.

  43. I'm thinking blueberry or blackberry...what a precious series of photos you captured! :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Blueberry? Lucy can make a big mess with a teeny little berry too.
    I like the elephant print of the sleeping bags if I'm lucky enough to win. Otherwise, just seeing that squishy sweet surprised face on Ivy is prize enough!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I think it has to be jelly. hmmm...what kind?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Looks like a raspberry or a cherry to me!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I guess raspberries? I think it's so cute when babies make messes like that lol. Not so cute when they get older, but for a baby it's ok :D

    ReplyDelete
  48. I am thinking blueberry, raspberry, blackberry... BUT i am going with BLUEBERRY because they can often be surprisingly sour.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I'm thinking it was strawberries, or rasberries.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Based on the last photo I say blackberry. The frozen kind can be pretty tart, which also explains the face to me.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I am guessing it is a crayon! Seen way too many of those end up looking like that. I would love the bees sleeping bag in small. I have a pregnant cousin that I would love to give it to. I probably will have to buy it if i don't win. :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. I'm going to guess cranberry... I think. =)
    I'd go with the bee print in a small.
    Thanks!

    Nell

    ReplyDelete
  80. I think blueberry. What a mess! I'd love the fish bag - my little one wears size 12 months.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I swear I did not look at any other guesses... and I'm going to say by the look on Ivy's face... a raspberry! A nice, juicy, plump raspberry... great for eating and great for finger-painting!

    (I'm excited for the real answer... but you do not need to include me in your contest. I'd love to see the sleeping bag go to someone who doesn't have one!!)

    ReplyDelete
  82. The faces she made are priceless. So fun that you were able to get your camera(phone?)in time.

    If I am chosen, I'd love the pink butterflies. I don't know what size-my daughter is currently in 6-9 month clothes. :)

    ReplyDelete
  83. No need to enter me in the drawing...I just wanted to say that the picture of her sour face is PRICELESS! I have something similar of Torri (now 14!) when I gave her a lemon as a baby. I'm so mean ;).

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  95. Looks like a blackberry to me...those can be quite sour, too. Very cute and awesome that you captured it.

    As far as a sleeping bag, I don't know how their sizes run, so S or M? I like the pink butterflies.

    Thanks for the comment on my blog...we're really excited. Not sure why it's not updating on your feed reader. I have that problem with some friends' blogs, too.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  100. My guess is blueberries ... we've seen an awful lot of those messes around our place. :)
    A swaddle blanket for our upcoming new babe would be awesome in size small and boyish colors. Great contest.
    And excellent photos! Those faces!

    ReplyDelete
  101. My first guess was a blackberry or black raspberry but it also looks like it could be a piece of a red beet. I hope it is one of the berries because those are a little easier to clean up than the beet.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Hey, out of curiosity...

    I've been following The Simple Mom's cloth diapering 101 posts this week and it made me wonder how the cloth diapering was going with Ivy. Do you have any tips or recommendations for other moms interested in CDing?

    ReplyDelete
  103. Blackberry! And I like the butterflies in medium.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Sarah,

    As for cloth diapering maybe I'll work on a post but in the meantime, it's going GREAT! I love it and it's been so much easier than I thought it would be. My favorites are still the Bum Genius (especially the organic with snaps) and GroBaby diapers.

    Steph

    marypres(at)gmail(dot)com

    ReplyDelete
  127. Ivy is absolutely precious! I adore your blog!

    I am going back and forth with raspberry and blackberry on this one...I think that adorable look of hers has me leaning heavier towards the blackberry choice! Can't wait to find out!

    ReplyDelete

  145. My guess is a blackberry. Just big enough to squish in her hand like that. :) Didn't know Aden & Anais made sleeping bags too! Would love Blue Stars XL if I were to win.

    ReplyDelete
  146. I'm also going with a blackberry, they definitely evoke that kind of reaction sometimes!

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  147. Hmm...I love a challenge! I'd guess either a blackberry or a blueberry. I say this because I have lots of similar stains around my house from the same thing happening! And blackberries are a little tart, so that could explain the adorable face :) If I were to win, I'd like the 0-6 months in white :)

    ReplyDelete
  148. I'm going to have to guess blackberry just because the juice looks too red for blueberries and the berry looks too blue for a raspberry, hahaha. GREAT shot, by the way!

    ReplyDelete

  152. I'm pretty sure it's a blueberry. Regardless she is absolutely adorable.

    If I were to win I would love the plain white sleeping bag in xl. Nothing is cuter on babies than white onesies and swaddle blankets, in my opinion.

    ReplyDelete
