Lily

Things we LOVE!

The Baby Bjorn was a great invention as far as I’m concerned. We go just about everywhere with ours.

We tried some of the other options that are out there like the slings however, either Lily wasn’t comfortable or I felt like she was going to fall out.

So we thought we would give the Baby Bjorn a try (we purchased ours from BabiesRus). It’s very comfortable to wear for both me and Will and Lily LOVES it!

She can face the world and be the curious little baby that she is or she can take a quick nap which she often does. 😉

Here are some great Baby Bjorn moments. In order Lily wears a long sleeve dress by Zutano and cap by Old Navy, sweater that was a gift from the Alaby girls, pants and socks by babyGap and cap by Old Navy, pink cardigan by babyGap and cap by Old Navy.

What toys to get Lily now!????

We are on a search for cool, fun, educational and hopefully, eco-friendly toys for Lily. It seems to me that she has somewhat outgrown the stuffed animals that just don’t do anything. Maybe they will be better for her again later but I feel like she needs something else now. Something that will really grab her attention! If it’s multifunctional even better. We don’t believe in too many toys nor do we have the space for it.

So, what to get?

If any of you moms and dads have any suggestions, we would love to hear some.

Land of Nod seems to have some interesting options.

Here are some that have gotten MY attention. Again, if you know anything about these toys or others, we would love to hear it.

Ok, diaper update

So, Lily has now been using the Huggies Little Snugglers for exactly 24 hours and so far no leaks or spills. Not that we had any leaks with the Pampers….

I’m not sure about the way the Huggies smell. They definitely have a scent to them once they are wet. I can’t quite put my finger on it…wet card board maybe?

Not to sound too gross but I also feel like the Huggies insulate the smell longer when Lily passes gas. (I hate to call her out like that but it does happen. ;))

One thing I do miss about the Pampers is the yellow strip that slowly turns blue as the diaper gets wet. It lets you know how wet the diaper is.

To me the Huggies Little Snugglers are OK. Not great, not horrible. Just OK.

Once this batch of Huggies Little Snugglers is done I think I would like to try the Seventh Generation and the Huggies Pure and Natural. And maybe even go up a size to 3 for 16-28lbs. It seems like she is outgrowing the size 2.

One thing is for sure though, Lily is just as cute in her Huggies as she was in her Pampers! 🙂

P.S.- The shipment from Lucky Vitamin placed on the 8th has not yet arrived. Can you believe that!!?

Things we LOVE!

Although we received the Soft Tiles interlocking foam floor mat only today, we are already LOVING it!!!

Lily spent almost the whole day on there getting plenty of tummy and play time.

After doing much research on the internet, we chose the Soft Tiles because not only were they the least expensive but, each square comes in 2 different sizes and in 8 colors. You can mix and match your own.

Red, Yellow and green were the colors we chose. How very Portuguese of us. 😉

Here is a very happy Lily on her Soft Tiles mat wearing a bodysuit by Old Navy, pants and socks by babyGap.

So little yet taking over already

We received Lily’s new interlocking foam floor mat today that we got from Soft Tiles.

It’s wonderful! We have been wanting it for a while so Lily can get more tummy time and have something soft to play on later however, it takes up the whole living room.

Again, living in a small 1 bedroom, we have limited space. Will and I have become experts on creating space where there isn’t any. lol

So until we move (hopefully sooner than later) and until Lily gets her room, we will just all have fun on this mat in the middle of the living room and make do! 🙂

Here is Lily enjoying herself on her Soft Tiles in a bodysuit by Old Navy, pants and socks by babyGap. And all of us having some fun before Lily’s bed time. Lily wears pink pajamas by babyGap.
