Carla Daly Growth Chart {Review/Giveaway}

By Wednesday, May 4, 2011 219 , , , , Permalink 0


We never decorated the boys’ nursery room. A. used to sleep in our bedroom when we lived in our 1 bedroom condo in downtown Portland. When we moved to our current house we decorated with a different things that had practically nothing in common! Like a Spiderman decal or the Optimus Prime decal A. tore off the wall. They also have a surfboard with sharks and a photo of a boy with a wedgie that Uncle Alex gave A. when he was born.

We never intended their room to follow a color scheme or anything. But something I have always wanted was a growth chart. And I found the most amazing one! Here’s my boys’ new Brachiosaurus growth chart:


{He was totally rolling his eyes at me while I snapped this picture…oh this boy cracks me up!}


The illustration is by the awesome artist Carla Daly whose images are geared towards kids. The growth chart is 52″ x 12 1/2″(132 x 32 cm). Perfectly tall enough for mommy and daddy to check how tall they are! Yes, A. asked me to get measured and put my mark as well!!

Not only is the illustration superb but the saying on the growth chart is that much better! The chart reads:

Brachiosaurus was very tall & very scary!
He loved his green vegetables.
If you want to be tall & scary remember…
Eat your greens!

So forget about being tall and strong…being tall and scary is the new thing!! Hehehe, LOVE IT!


{They look so enthralled, don’t they! Hehehe…}


Before we had the growth chart (which, btw, Carla DAly graciously provided for us to review) we used to put our marks on the wall, as you can see on the left of the photo. Now I can simply add those marks to the chart and take it with us to Colorado! I was very close to measuring every single one of those marks and taking notes…argh. I dreaded that idea!

Make sure to visit Carla Daly’s website and see what else she has to offer! Oh yes, not only does she have growth charts but she also has nursery art, alphabet art, baby keepsakes and my super favorite map of the USA!

{Don’t you just love it!!}
So we are moving from Beaver land to Bighorn Sheep land!!
Where do you guys live?
