8 Month Favorites

| Leave a comment

8 months is a fun age! I feel like I say that every time I do a monthly favorite. I guess it is just fun to watch Ada grow and learn to do new things. Right now, Ada is starting to grab everything in her reach. So her favorite things to play with, is everything that isn’t a toy! 🙂 But here is a small list of our favorites this month:

8 months

Puffs – Ada is now feeding herself… I know, right?! She is feeding herself! I started her on these puffs to help teach her to feed herself and they have done just that. She loves to feed herself and these puffs are great for little fingers to pick up.

Stacker – This stacker has been a great toy for Ada. I love that it is made of silicone, so it is great for her to chew on. It is a small stacker, about 6 inches tall. I like that it is small for Ada’s small hands and she loves to launch these pieces across the room!

Lovie – We are late on getting her a lovie and I wish we had started a little sooner. Ada loves her blankets, but it makes me nervous to leave one in the crib for her at night. So we got her this lovie so she can hold on to something at night. It took a few weeks for her to become attach to it, but now she uses it every night. This lovie is made from the same company that makes my favorite burp cloths. It is very soft and not to mention, adorable!

Activity Triangle – She has had a blast with this activity triangle. It came with the elephant as well, but she doesn’t like it as much. I guess she will learn to play with that one later. But the triangle is great and she spends a lot of time playing with it.

Stroller – We love this stroller! This is one thing that we have used since she was a newborn and will continue to use for a long time after. The best thing about this stroller is that it grows with your baby. The newborn carseat clicks into this stroller, which is great when you have a sleeping newborn and do not want to disturb her. You just grab the seat, click her in the stroller and you are good to go. The toddler seat is something that we have just started using and Ada loves it. Now that she can hold herself up well, she loves sitting in it and looking around. We have been using the stroller a lot here lately, now that warmer weather has finally come to the mountains! 🙂

Mini Spatulas – Ada grabbed this off the kitchen counter one day and has not stopped playing with it. It has actually been the best teether for Ada. It is small enough for her to manipulate with her little hands and it fits in her little mouth very well. She loves chewing on this thing! Who knew, right?

Happy Hump Day ya’ll! Hope you have a great day!
