Ha! Okay, we're going to try and get through this without laughing, but it is hard because Heelarious' totally fun high heeled shoes for newborns are, quite possibly, one of the funniest things we have ever seen! Perfect for non-walkers 0-6 months old, these totally functional baby booties are a, well, Heelarious baby shower gift because they come in a purse!, present for your Louboutin-loving pal who just had a newborn and for those dress-up occasions like weddings, and Sunday brunch with the ladies! Stroll in the City with Heelarious because they are totally stylin'! These high heeled shoes come in many patterns so you just can't get one, but hey, a lady should never be questioned about her soleful shoe collection!

Cancer babies feel most at home with family and all her/his favorite familiar things. Naturally domestic, you might find (s)he wanting to help out in the kitchen! Word to the wise, invest in a kitchen set! (S)he identifies very stongly with her/his surroundings and like a sponge, lil' Cancer tends to absorb the emotional environment around her/him. This is fine if the vibes are good...but if there are bad vibes in the air, Cancer will become a very Crabby Crab! Be very careful what your little one is watching on T.V. this can effect Cancer so deeply, to the point of losing sleep! When (s)he's maxed out on being a little emotional filter...(s)he may retreat into her little safe shell to heal herself. It's not easy being a little nurse at such a young age! But again this is a natural attribute. You may find all her/his teddies and dolls bandaged up with toilet paper and band-aids...so another wise investment would be a Doctor's Kit! Always try to handle your little Crab gently and sensitively and (s)he will return love and tenderness three-fold!
Birthstone-Pearl and Moonstone
Essential Oils- Jasmine and Water Lily
Great Gifts- Kitchen/Cooking sets, Dolls/dolls house, seeds, plants, garden tools, photo albums, Jewelry
Have a lil Crab? Share a fun Cancerian story with us in the comments!

We here at the Psycho Baby blog are thrilled to have these answers from Christian Denney, the founder (and designer!) of the Me In Mind Footwear collection! His booties like the Mom and Dad Tattoo shoes, Trucker Girls and Skulls are fashionable and a hit with all the lil babes we know, because this Dad of three munchkins knows his style stuff (as well as his way around the answers to our questions!) All the way from Nevada, we present Christian Denney, our Cool, Crazy Person of the Month!
1. What is the coolest thing that has ever happened to you?
2. What is the craziest fashion statement you have ever made?
3. What is your favorite book?
4. What toy can you not live with out (Keep it clean, this one's for the children!)?
5. If you could have a superpower, what would it be?

The famed Master Troicuk vs. Captain Jack Sparrow? Toss-up....Troicuk could be so fond of Capt. Jack's Keith Richards impersonation and fancy hair and decorative scarves he might just give up, or he just might swoop down like the hidden dragon he is. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles vs. the Dread Pirate Roberts? Toss-up again as we'd go Turtles just because of the sheer numbers, unless this somehow involved iocane powder, because as we all know, Capt. Roberts has spent the last few years building up an immunity to the stuff.
We thought maybe the kids would know best on this one, and we thought wrong! Split straight down the middle those kids were voting for the ninja and then swinging around foam pirate swords until we really wanted to say "parlay!"
The seas of our minds are tumultous as this question, we feel, cannot be resolved by only us. So right here and right now, America, cast your vote in our comments section and let us know once and for all if you think its Pirates or Ninjas!

What musical classics are your sharing with your little ones, and how does this inspire talks of history or just some groovin' in the car? When I was on my trip, the kids (Hi J, J, S and Uncle R - Bravo!!!) formed a "band" with their Uncle and did a stunning rendition of the great Ray Charles' "Hit the Road, Jack" that had us all dancin'. There are plenty of times in our store where our rock tees bring people back to an awesome time or super funny story or where kids show off their awesome dance moves! What inspires you to "Get Into The Groove?" Let us know!
