I can't wait until I turn this blog into a book I can give to Jake's wife one day. I was going to print my blog out at the end of the year, but I then decided I'm going to do it when Jake turns one. So, in September... that will be the plan! Until then, I keep blogging about my little family.
This week I'm obsessed with the following items:
- First on my list is Sophie the Giraffe. The most expensive giraffe. Ha! Do you remember my story with Sophie? The first one I had was stolen out of my stroller when I was trying on clothes (who steals a teething toy another child is currently using?). Then I ordered another one for Christmas, and accidentally threw a box away with about $100 worth of baby toys. I told myself I wouldn't buy another one after already spending $40 dollars on it. Well, I bought another one anyhow. $60 dollars later... we have Sophie home again. Jake loves it. It is cute. And I believe it helps soothes his little gums.
- The floor gym. Jake has been playing under this since he was 3 weeks old. I even take it with me when we travel. I lay a blanket down (underneath it) and lay out some of his toys. He loves touching the items on it (I added more rings hanging from it), and he reaches and is trying to crawl towards his toys I lay out.
- I had a little blanket with a bear attached, but I couldn't resist this one. It's a little lamb with the softest material. I bought this at a boutique in Mammoth. Swirlz Fur Lamb. It is super soft, and there is a satin lining underneath it. Jake likes to hold on it it. It's adorable.
- Summer Infant Slim and Secure Handheld video monitor. LOVE this. I think I would love any video monitor though. I like to be able to watch my little man sleep. It gives me peace to see him sleeping comfortably. Yes... my little man does sleep in his crib now... in case you were wondering. :)
