PJ Fanatic

I’m definitely a PJ fanatic. It all started with my with my almost 3 year old and it picked up speed with my 4 month old.  I’ve got to say that my absolute favorite PJs are from Hanna Andersson so you can obviously see why I’d be a fan of Serena & Lily’s newest PJs where they partnered with Hanna Andersson….totally adorable.  I’m also a long time fan of Hatley footed PJs too.  Hatley has a bunch of these footie ones on sale.  The best thing about all of these is that they zip up.  No fumbling with snaps late at night!

Socks That Go RAWR!

You are probably wondering why I’m talking about socks when its a gagillion degrees out where we live.  Well, I’m a planner and I can’t help it.  I’m pretty sure my little guy needs these for school this fall.  And I’m pretty sure I’m gonna love the sound effects  he will make when he puts them on.

The One with the Yeti

Remember the Friends episode where Rachel and Monica bug bomb the neighbor because they thought he was a yeti?  Good God do I love me some Friends…I need to start re-watching that series all over again.  So anyway, back to yetis..I’ve been seeing them in the stores lately while searching out some winter wear for my little guy and I just think they are adorable!  I mean it’s not your typical holiday t-shirt, it’s a YETI, it’s an ABOMINABLE SNOWMAN!

Year In Review: How We Survived a Full Year of Baby

These items have helped my husband and I survive this year.  So I guess this is a Year in Review/Survival Guide.  These items have helped us through months 3 through 14 of bouncing baby boy.  I know all kiddos are different but maybe one of these items may help you make it out alive.

  1. Dex Baby Sound Sleeper, Amazon-Womb setting on mid volume anytime, anywhere combined with #7 will induce slumber like no other combo.  It may or may not induce slumber minus #7 in mama & dad, just saying.
  2. Sophie the Giraffe Teether, Amazon-This little dude is called George in our casa.  George is excellent for all things teething.  As our little one has gotten older different parts of George work better–currently he’s working on George’s leg.
  3. Itzbeen Baby Care Timer, Amazon-Months 1-3 this was the BOMB for tracking feedings and sleeping and everything.  Months 4 and beyond we’ve mainly used this gem for tracking any sort of medicine or Tylenol when he’s teething.
  4. Night Night Baby Sleeper, Hanna Andersson-These PJs are awesome.
  5. Animal Ears Hat, The June Bride Etsy Shop-I’ve posted on these before.  We currently have a navy, orange, turquoise, and brown we have been rotating this winter.  They are super cute, stay on and my little munchin doesn’t rip them off his head.
  6. Bright Starts Around We Go Activity Center, Amazon-This thing is sort of an exersaucer-ish type of thing except the baby can actually move from one activity to another.  The seat can come off and can be used as an activity table.  At 14 months we are still going strong with the piano part of this thing sans the seat–what can I say, we like to dance around here.
  7. Soothie Pacifier, Amazon-This was the only pacifier my son would take.  And I think my husband and I high fived each other for days when in the middle of the night we’d watch our son on the video monitor find it on his own and put himself back to sleep.
  8. Baby Bjorn Babysitter Balance, Amazon-We used a different bouncer very early on, but this one has been great from about 5 months til present.  I think we are getting to our weight limit on it, but we still use this in the mornings when preparing breakfast and needed to keep the speed demon in place.  He still hasn’t figured out how to get out of it, he just happily bounces!
  9. Nuby Sippy Cups, Amazon-THE sippy cup.  We have searched high and low for a sippy cup that my son will drink out of and this seems to be the big winner!
  10. Nesting Blocks, Amazon-I ordered some nesting blocks like this before the little bebe was born.  BEST. PURCHASE. EVER.  Our little dude still loves to play with these and he never tires of them.

Oh and if all other toys FAIL?  Give em one of these…talk about endless fun, endless fascination.  I don’t get it.

I Love Me Some Baby Hats

When my little boy was a tiny baby, he had a hat on his head wherever we went.  I loved me some baby hats.  My dad told me, if I didn’t stop putting hats on him, his hair wouldn’t grow.  Blagh!  On a related note, my 1 yr old is just starting to get some hair on his noggin.
