These wooden trade tokens from Leafcutter Designs have historical roots and celebrate simple gifts of love, especially in a tough economy. But I'm loving them because Sweet Baby is obsessed with putting money in her piggy bank and mouth, and real money is too small and dirty and chokable and fake money is too plastic. These wooden coins look larger and cleaner and happier, and you can buy them for just 75 cents each or even have your own design custom made. (via More Ways to Waste Time)

I took a little time off and grew a baby! Woohoo! Excellent work, old body (and team of doctors)! I also discovered Nova Natural, a toy catalog and site that has a bunch of neat stuff you don't see everywhere. I really like this baby hammock (for a real live baby). It is kind of pricey at $110 for the hammock and another $124 for the stand, but it sure beats that plastic swing I've been storing in my closet.
