baby must haves, 9 month edition

August 14, 2016

baby must haves
a friend of mine is having her first baby (so excited for her) and i told her i would send her a list of all of my baby must haves, but i figured why not do a blog post to share some of my favorites. i posted a list awhile back (here), after rowan was born, but here is the “9 month edition” of my most recent baby must haves.

oak & navy bibs
i randomly ordered these on amazon awhile back and they are now my major baby must have. not only because they are cute, but because they are also so absorbent and hide yucky drool.

rosie pope onesies
of all the onesies out there for babies, rosie pope makes my absolute favorite. they are affordable and have super cute graphics that are clever, cool and unique to the endless obnoxious graphics out there.

baby bjorn travel crib
this little crib has been amazing for us, especially since we are always on the go. we take it with us everywhere. we bought it for alexa when she was a baby and we have now used it for all the kids.

zolli on the go formula/snack dispenser
my friend suzanne sent me this when rowan was born. i have used every kind of formula dispenser out there and this one is the best. its easy to use and carries a lot while staying sim and compact.

cloud b lamb baby soother
this is another one of those items we purchased for alexa and have used for all three kids now. we travel with it and use it every night. there are a lot of sound machines out there, but i love that this one is cuddly and attaches to the crib.

lollaland playmat
forget all other playmats… this one rocks. it is well cushioned, reversible, waterproof and easy-to-clean. it is a hypoallergenic, non-toxic, non-slip protective alternative to nursery/playroom rug.

parasol diapers
i am planning an entire post dedicated to these amazing diapers, but in the meantime i had to add them into this list because i really love these new diapers and i recently left the beloved honest co. and switched over completely to parasol.

big brother

April 3, 2016

hayden has always been such a warm hearted and charming boy… but hayden in “big brother” mode might be one of the cutest things i have ever seen. he is so wonderful with rowan. he always wants to hold him, feed him and entertain him. it is hard to believe hayden is going to be 5 this summer–where does the time go?! i started blogging when he was about to turn 1 year old. now he is all boy–full of energy, laughter and charm. he still smiles as much as he did when he was a baby… and still makes girls blush with his effortless flirty nature–we are in trouble with this kid and the ladies!

i still can’t figure out what rowan’s personality is going to be like… can’t wait to see these three kiddos in action playing together.

first feeding

April 2, 2016

rowan takes the cake on the biggest baby in our family! i’m not quite sure how our little babes turn out to be in the 97th percentile across all categories, but they do. i am super thankful though because i suppose a little chunky is better than being afraid that he doesn’t eat enough! we just started feeding him baby oatmeal and some pureed veggies. i remember when alexa was 5 months old and we were given the green light to feed her, i was so excited until i started to feed her. seems simple to feed a baby but turns out that is not always the case. all alexa did was spit out the food and make faces. rowan, on the other hand, started eating as if it was all he ever knew to do. no mess, just mouth open and swallowed it down. hilariously cute.



we try our best to only feed the kids organic at home. rowan is on earth’s best organic sensitive formula, which we have loved so far. he just started eating happy baby oatmeal and earth’s best pureed veggies. earth’s best, happy baby products and stony field products have practically raised our family!
