Soft Clothing Giveaway!!

I love Christmas! It's my most favorite holiday. I love just about everything about it - the sights, the smells, the sentiment, the warm cozy feeling, the smooth voice of Bing Crosby playing in the background, the thought that it's the season we celebrate God's gift of Jesus and life to the world . . . it's just a wonderful season!

Considering the season of giving is now upon us, Soft Clothing and Hartley's Life with 3 Boys Blog are having a Holiday Giveaway!! I have mentioned Soft Clothing on my blog before, but just in case you are wondering, Soft Clothing is a company dedicated to making soft clothing - comfortable clothing designed with children with SPD in mind (Sensory Processing Disorder).

As for Hartley - I guess you could say that she found me. =0) I really enjoy reading her blog about life with a child with SPD and Autism.

I can tell you, Soft Clothing really lives up to its name. No matter how many times we wash Isaiah's pants and shirts, they are still as soft as the day they arrived - and we don't even use fabric softener!

There will be 2 prizes given away (one for a boy and one for a girl) and will include prizes that focus on fine motor skills, sensory integration, creativity, and more. Here is what will be included (taken from Soft Clothing's site):

Quilted Train Stocking from Pottery Barn Kids (boys prize)
Quilted Angel Stocking from Pottery Barn Kids (girls prize)
This is Gabriel Making Sense of School, by Hartley Steiner
SPD Awareness Calendar (for sale at
Glitter bouncy ball from Pottery Barn Kids
Alex Finger Crayons
Tangle Textured Jr
AKU Sensory Ring
Melissa and Doug Jumbo Paint Brushes (set of 4)
Melissa and Doug Deluxe Fuzzy Make your Own Monster Puppet
Wonderland Eco Friendly Rainbow Sound Blocks
Mood Therapy Putty
Soft Seamless Sock 2-pack
One complete Soft dressy look for girls OR
One complete Soft dressy look for boys

Isaiah has some sensory issues with texture, especially when it comes to clothing. Since Isaiah's skin is so sensitive, I cannot use fabric softener in his clothing, which can make the clothes scratchy to him, which (of course) drives him nuts. Have you ever tried to wear blue jeans without fabric softener??? Enough said? =0) That's why I love the denim pants from Soft Clothes - there is no need for fabric softener because they are super soft. Isaiah has yet to complain about them being icky.

So, how do you enter? Click on any of the embedded links above or click HERE and enter away! =0)


As far as Isaiah's health . . . I have more to post on our recent All Children's Hospital appointment (it was an unplanned, emergency visit) . . . but it will have to wait until my brain has a little bit more time to process all the info.

So, for now, here are a couple of pictures I want to share with you:

Morning snuggles with a napping Ye-Ye =0)

. . . and just because she rarely shows up on the blog
(thank you, Nai-Nai, for all your hard work and support!!!)

Have you tried any natural fabric softeners? I add baking soda to the wash and 2 tablespoons of distilled white vinegar in place of fabric softener. Safer and cheaper!
