It is really hard to believe that my little man is 6 months old already!
On one hand, I am a bit sad that it is all going by so quickly. On the other, he just keeps getting to be so much fun, and I love watching his personality come out more and more.
This month’s favorites are quite different from the last few that I’ve done and really reflect Michael’s development…and the fact that he is no longer just a big ball of mush.
1. 5 Little Counting Books
MT bought one of these books for Michael last weekend (the one about fish), and it was an instant hit. There’s something about the pages that sucks Michael in completely. We’ve probably read it 25 times already!
2. Lamaze Play & Grow Jacques the Peacock Take Along Toy
When Michael was a newborn, this was hanging from his baby carrier. He probably didn’t have a clue that it was there, and if he did notice it, he surely didn’t seem to care. I finally removed it, but about a week or so ago, I realized that Michael would probably love it now. Sure enough, he’s all into it and plays with it while we’re driving in the car. He’s always really good in the car anyway, but this has helped to alleviate any boredom when we are at those dreaded stop lights. (Any other mommies have babies who hate when the car has to stop for traffic lights?)
4. Playskool Busy Tumble Top
Santa brought this to Michael for Christmas, and he’s finally old enough to play with it. Before bed, we’ll sit on his floor together and watch the balls bounce all over the hive when we push the top. It cracks him up nearly every time (unless he has a bottle on his brain).
5. Baby Bullet 8-Piece Storage SystemAs I shared last week, Michael just recently started to experiment with solid foods. Rather than buying baby food in the store, I’ve been making his food (and will continue to do so). These containers are just perfect for storing what I’ve made, and they are just the right portion size. I love the little smiley faces on the containers. They came that way, but MT thought that I drew the smiley faces myself. Maybe I’ll draw some on our drinking glasses- and most definitely on our wine glasses!
6. Evenflo Splash Mega Exersaucer
Michael has a complete blast in this thing. I love watching him jump in it and spin himself around. It really wears him out which probably explains all of the naps that he takes.
If you have a baby, what are your favorite things for him or her right now? Michael is also loving his high chair. I think it makes him feel like a big boy.
Have a great day!
Haha. You’re not a hijacker. I find that the Honest Company cleaner works just as well as other natural cleaners that I’ve used- if not better. I am definitely going to do a more detailed post on them, so stay tuned for that one!
