Newsflash! First update in 2011.

Ever since the ringing of 2011, I seem to have developed blogger's block. But it's time to change that and get back into the groove of letting all our wonderful customers about what's happening at the store.

The biggest news flash is, of course, the birth of Charley Mae Nesbitt on the evening of the Winter Solstice just one month ago. Jen, her partner Smiley, and Charley are all happy and beginning their new life together. Jen is not only my business partner but has been my best friend for 14 years so it's a real joy to see her as a mom. Now my daughter Ibi, who will be three in February, has another new friend. And there is no doubt that Jen's new found motherhood will bring a fresh eye to the way she buys for the store when she returns after her maternity leave.

As far as the store? We're getting lots of new products coming in every day as we restock our shelves after a busy Holiday Season. You'll find a great mix of all the products you've come to trust in our store alongside new additions to lines and altogether new products. Also, look for Spring/Summer clothing arriving in the coming weeks. We will be blogging about them as they arrive.

And in celebration of our second anniversary coming up next month, we've decided to make February the "Official Cloth Diaper Month" at Hip Baby. There will be two of our popular workshops instead of just one (the January workshop sold out!), and there will be many savings to be had in all things cloth diaper. It'll be a great time to stock up on your favourite diapers and accessories. We'll update you with details next week.

We hope your 2011 is off to a great start!
