Back in May we received a thank you from the Hanson family for the gift we sent to John Ira Shepherd Hanson (“Shepherd”), for his 2nd birthday. Now the Hanson’s  are welcoming their 2nd child into the world, daughter Junia Rosa Ruth. Looks like we need to get a new gift basket together… Congratulations from the Sama Baby Team!!

Zac Hanson got an early holiday present on Wednesday – and it was exactly what he was hoping for.

The Hanson drummer and his wife Kate welcomed their second child, daughter Junia Rosa Ruth, who arrived at 8 lbs., 7 oz.

“We couldn’t imagine a better Christmas gift than this sweet little girl,” Hanson, 25, tells PEOPLE.

“In just the short time she’s been here, she’s enriched our family and our lives beyond measure,” he adds. “We’re looking forward to celebrating the season with our family and introducing her to everyone.”

Baby Junia joins brother Shepherd, 2½, and a half-dozen cousins ranging from age 2 to 8: Zac’s brother and bandmate Taylor has four kids while Isaac has two.

Encouraging trade, not aid, co-founders Erin Brennan Allan and Mary Wambui source their organic cotton from Uganda, where it is grown and spun then brought to Nairobi, where it is twisted, dyed, and Wambui trains and manages a group of up to 200 knitters.

“I provide a clean and comfortable working environment for my knitters–in most cases bringing the work to them,” said Allan, when asked in e-mail correspondence about the enforcement of fair trade standards. She continued, “They can work as much or as little as they like or are able to; are paid by the piece giving them flexibility to put their families first; and their wages are above the government minimum wages and reflect the cost of living in Nairobi for skilled workers.”

Harlow Madden sure looks pretty in pink!

While out for family pizza night with dad Joel Madden, mom Nicole Richie and little brother Sparrow, the adorable 2-year-old stepped out in an adorable girlie-meets-punk ensemble (tiered print dress, graffiti-style sneakers and flower headband). But it was her colorful footwear that really caught our eye.

Turns out the curly-haired cutie was sporting Twinkle Toes Dualing Hearts ($37) shoes from SKECHERS KIDS. Bright and glittery, they feature a hip graphic design and light up! (People.com)

These snazzy sneakers would look adorable paired with our Sama Rockstar Dresses! The colors in the shoe go perfectly with the our raspberry rose print. Keep it rockin’ Harlow! Check out SamaBaby.com for more color options!

Champion Race Car Driver Sam Hornish Jr. and Family are Sama Fans! September 13, 2010

Addison Hornish Sam Hornish Jr.,  driver of the #77 Mobil 1 Dodge, stands on the grid with his wife  Crystal and daugher Addison prior to the start of the NASCAR Sprint Cup  Series Crown Royal Presents the Heath Calhoun 400 at Richmond  International Raceway on May 1, 2010, 2010 in Richmond, Virginia.

Hornish, who remains one of the most decorated drivers in IndyCar Series history, is also a loving dad to his daughter Addison. Known for his late race passes, Hornish has been involved in four of the top-10 closest finishes in IndyCar Series history, as he won three of them.

Although Hornish is a world-class racer, he has not forgotten his roots and is actively involved in community efforts across the country. In his hometown of Defiance, Ohio, Hornish was involved in the creation of a senior center for local residents as well as the addition of a heart center at Defiance Medical Center.

Hornish also turned his love of bowling into a successful charity campaign over the past five years during the fall race weekend at Texas Motor Speedway. In conjunction with Speedway Children’s Charities, Hornish has raised over $500,000 to benefit the children of north Texas.  The Sama team loves that about him 🙂

We wanted to share the thank you letter we received from Sam Hornish Jr. and family through Jewels and Pinstripes, on the personalized “Addison Faith” cardstore stationery that was included in the bag.

We can’t thank you enough for all the fun stuff you sent for Addison’s 2nd Birthday!  We truly appreciate your kindness & thoughtfulness.  Addie loves her backpack & she looks adorable with new barrettes 🙂

Thanks Again,
Sam, Crystal & Addison

Thanks for the kind words Hornish family!!

Family Groove: MOM ON THE STREET, Shivani Gupta! September 1, 2010

MOM ON THE STREET

Our very own Shivani Gupta, Sama CEO, was featured on The Family Groove’s Mom On The Street series! Here is what she and a few other moms had to say!

Welcome to “Mom on the Street” (ya know, like “Man on the Street”) by Family Groove. Each month, we’ll be asking moms just like you for a slice of their sage advice, insider tips or tried-and-true wisdom in the hopes that their unique brand of mothering inspires, assuages, calms, strengthens and even amuses you.

This month’s question:

What are you looking forward to this fall?

Blakeley Smart  and Family Blakeley Smart is the founder of Bronzed Envy (www.bronzedenvy.com), a mobile airbrush tanning franchise. Here’s what this Round Rock, Texas, mother of two has to say:

“Fall is such a great time of the year for my family. School starts again, [there are] new teachers, kids have a schedule, and Mom gets some much-needed work done. My youngest will be starting kindergarten this year, so I’m really looking forward to the excitement that comes with that, but it’s topped with a bit of sadness knowing my last little chickadee is leaving the nest. So for me, this fall brings about a new chapter of my life. After a hot, chaotic yet fun summer, come fall, it’s an exciting time for me as well to set new goals with my business and take it to an all-new level!”

Laurie Penix  and family Laurie Penix is the creator and co-founder of Zomm (www.zomm.com), a keychain-sized wireless leash with call notification and personal safety features for Bluetooth-enabled phones.

Here is what this Tulsa, Okla., mother of three has to say:

“Most people are surprised to hear that I love the outdoors. The warmer months are great, for obvious reasons, but I also love watching the seasons change to the fall. I spend a lot of time at the lake enjoying the sun, fishing and relaxing. The best part has to be the fall sunsets; they are so beautiful.”

Shivani Gupta Shivani Gupta is the co-owner of Sama Baby (www.samababy.com), makers of luxury organic cotton clothing for babies and toddlers. Here’s what this Houston, Texas, mom-to-be has to say:

“I am looking forward to creating a wonderful eco-nursery for the newest addition to my family. For us, we have learned that airing out products when you get them is very important—in order to make sure all the chemicals are released and not trapped in the nursery, which could be harmful for your baby. For us, we really believe that going green is an easy choice, and there are so many products out there. We have looked at many other products, from organic mattresses to wonderful wooden toys, and are able to find them at great prices, and in wonderful designs. We are even looking into no-VOC paint as well as recycled wood for the crib—as we think about the environment in every aspect. Going green is so easy in today’s age—and there are so many great ideas and sites on how to be a better environmentalist while thinking about your child! At Sama Baby, we have been very excited in creating organic cotton clothing for little ones—and this fall we are featuring our latest product: our organic cotton denim line, which is super stylish, comfortable and affordable. For us, fall is a great season to stay warm, happy and enjoy the beautiful colored leaves. We love the new season and what it brings for everyone.”
