January 2014 marks the 10th anniversary of the first National Stalking Awareness Month





January 2014 marks the 10th anniversary of the first National Stalking Awareness Month. There has been increased awareness of stalking and enhanced responses to stalking across the country. Laws have been strengthened, tens of thousands of professionals trained on responding to stalking, and services for victims of stalking have been expanded. Yet, the fact that 6.6 million adults are stalked in the United States in one year demonstrates that we still have so much more to do.

The Stalking Resource Center of the National Center for Victims of Crime is pleased to continue our partnership with the Office on Violence Against Women, U.S. Department of Justice, in observing National Stalking Awareness Month 2014. We have a wealth of resources to share with you. You can take our interactive quiz; download our videos, fact sheets, guides, posters, artwork for buttons and magnets, events ideas, and media tools to build your knowledge; and start planning your outreach for National Stalking Awareness Month.

You have the power to help “know, name, and stop” stalking in your community including online stalking.

Tortle, the Pediatrician developed Lightweight Baby Beanie Designed to Prevent or Treat Flat Head Syndrome Now Available on Target.Com

Treat Flat Head Syndrome with the Tortle
Many babies have the look and sometimes no matter what you do, you can't get rid of that flat baby head look. My nephew's baby had a flat head and still does at the age of 1 but other than telling him to keep turning the baby, there wasn't much else that could be done. I wasn't around them so I have no idea how the baby spent most of his time so other than advising, that was it until now. This product called the Tortle is now available at Target.com.

Here is the news release to find out more:

Denver, Colorado--(January 2013) -- Tortle Products, LLC, manufacturer of Tortle, the lightweight knit beanie that helps prevent and treat Flathead Syndrome, announced today that Tortle will now be available on Target.com beginning January 1, 2013.

Target.com will carry three Tortle designs; Blue Elephant, Pink Flowers and Solid White. The Tortle beanies are available in medium and large sizes at a suggested retail price of $19.99.

Developed by Dr. Jane Scott, a Board Certified Pediatrician and Neonatologist, the Tortle beanie is an FDA-cleared patented Class 1 medical device that promotes proper head and neck movement which is essential for appropriate development. Tortle helps prevent and treat early stages of flat head syndrome: plagiocephaly (the flattening of the baby’s skull) & torticollis (unbalanced neck muscles). Tortle works by gently deflecting a baby’s head from side to side when they are sitting or lying on the back of their head. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends regular head repositioning of babies younger than six months.

“Every baby is at risk of developing Flat Head Syndrome with one out of two babies being diagnosed with the Syndrome,” said Dr. Jane Scott. “Through Target.com we will have an opportunity to further increase awareness of Flat Head Syndrome and the ease in which it can be prevented or treated.”

The incidence of Plagiocephaly and Torticollis (or Flathead syndrome) has increased to epidemic proportions since 1992 with more than a million babies being diagnosed with the condition each year in the U.S. alone. This is due to their lack of movement and the amount of time infants spend on their back (the safest place for them to be). If left untreated, there can be long-standing problems. Treatment is frequently expensive and can be somewhat uncomfortable for a baby. Plagiocephaly and Torticollis are almost 100% preventable with repositioning and Tortle makes this safe and easy. It is recommended that all newborns wear a Tortle for the first 6 months of life to support healthy development.

Dr. Scott, whose specialty is Pediatrics and Neonatology, is recognized as an expert in the areas of Plagiocephaly and Torticollis. In her nearly 30 years as a practicing physician, Dr. Scott has counseled and educated hundreds of parents to help prevent as well as treat the many problems associated with Flathead Syndrome. Dr. Jane’s mission is to prevent Flathead Syndrome-an epidemic affecting the babies across the world. Please visit tortle.com for more information.

Our Merry Grinchmas Christmas Party - 2013

We had our second annual Grinchmas party and it turned out better than last year.  The girls enjoyed it and we had fun but next year, I need to incorporate some games and activities.  I embroidered the shirts and my oldest made the skirts and the Grinch cookies.  Now, it's time to clean it all up and pack it away for the upcoming move.  I have to make sure the movers don't break or ruin anything like the last time.  I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!

Grinch sugar cookies made by my oldest.

Grinch stuffed animal from Build-A-Bear, lighted presents from Kirklands, cake layers with an amazing frosting recipe I found online in small dessert glasses and cupcakes with Grinch picks I made along with Grinch border I placed around styrofoam cupcake stands I bought off of Ebay.

I printed off a some Grinch and Whoville pictures and recreated the mailroom from the Grinch scene.  The banner was made from files I purchased on Etsy.

I ran out of time to try to be more creative with the cake pops so I just made ball shapes and used confetti on top.  The labels I made with a regular program and printed of my Canon printer.  I applied packing tape carefully around each one to keep them water proof.  The Christmas trees came from Kohls and I just leaned them over for appearance.

Closer look at the dessert glasses, cupcakes and of the menu that I made with help from the Cricut.  We had roast beast, grinch green fingers (green beans), Cindy Loo Hoo butter rolls, green eggs (deviled) and ham and much more.

The girls wearing their shirts I embroidered and the skirts my oldest made.  I also made the headbands to be whimsical.

I made the giant Hershey bar Grinch wrappers.
