Three Things Thursday

BABY THINGS. Because that’s my life. And I lo-ooo-ooove it.

  1. Grapple. It’s a great little invention that allows parents to tether up to three toys! I immediately bought it when I saw it in the store because I routinely put three loose toys on Wes’s high chair and have to retrieve each from the floor approximately a half million times each meal. The Grapple solved that dilemma and Wes seems to even get a kick out of throwing his toys around and still being able to reach them! PS: It cleans super easy AND makes for its own toy- Wes played with the leaf for a good 20 minutes before realizing his toys were attached.


2. Living Textiles Jersey Fitted Sheet. I had bought one of these before Wes was born and planned and swapping it out with a couple of other cotton fitted sheets I had bought for his crib (you know, in case there were barf/diaper blowouts). But I’ve found that he prefers the softness of this sheet. Now that he’s flipping around more and often sleeping on his belly, even I prefer to see him cheek to cheek with a softer knit. The best part? The sheet gets softer and softer with every wash. I went out on Black Friday and picked up a couple more for his crib- lucky kid.


3. Playtex Training Time Straw Cup I bought one of these a couple of weeks ago when Brie asked if I’d started using straws with Wes. Of course I hadn’t (because I have ZERO smarts on what to do with babies and when) so I immediately ran out to Shoppers to pick one up and give it a go. Within 2-3 attempts of just knowing- or gumming- on the straw, Wes finally picked up on the task and began taking small sips of water. He is totally obsessed with it and will often reach out for it when he sees I have it nearby. He’s even getting the hang of holding on to the handles, although I don’t trust him 100% with it haha.


4. (Because who NEEDS to play by the rules..I’m adding an extra) I sing this song to Wes every time I put him down. And when he doesn’t go down right away, I resort to humming it and I think he finds it really soothing when he’s resting his head against my chest. Ahhh yet another great bonding moment with my boy.

So there ya have it- a few BABY RELATED things I’ve been loving lately. These are great gift ideas too!! 😉 If you have any great baby finds, please let me know! I will gladly buy something for Wes over a new pair of Wunder Unders for myself (small tear on that one, but hey).
