Six Month Favorites

| Leave a comment

Six months has been such a fun age! I love that Ada is mostly sitting up on her own; it makes play time so much fun! But a lot of times, Ada is more interested in non-toy items – like, my coffee mug! 🙂 But here are a few things that Ada and I have enjoyed this month.

6 months

Finger Puppet Books – I found these books in a consignment shop and Ada loves playing with the soft puppets. And I think they are really cute, with beautiful colors.

Nuby Teethers – These teethers have been awesome! Ada loves them and they fit her little hands so well. It is a good thing I have those drool bibs, because she drools like mad when she chews on these! But she is happy!

Crab – I am not sure why Ada likes this stuffed crab so much, but she does. She laughs when I scratch the crab’s belly – the fabric there is a little rougher and it makes noise. And she loves hugging it and chewing on it.

Chew Beads – Ada has been going to town on her rattlers here lately. She loves swinging them around and of course, chewing on them. She also loves playing “lets see how many times mom will play fetch” with these toys. 🙂

Beaba – Before I had Ada, I was not going to get one of these. I thought it was silly to invest in a blender just for baby. But I got one for Christmas and I love it! It has been making baby food for Ada so simple and easy! It steams, blends, defrosts and reheats food all in one machine. And I can do everything with one hand! Very handy when you are holding a baby (see what I did there? Haha!). Anything to make my life easier right now is a good thing!

Ergo 360 – I wish I had invested in one of these when Ada was first born. It would have made my life so much easier. We had a baby carrier that someone gave us, but I didn’t like it and Ada didn’t either. I love that Ada can be carried in several different ways in the 360. Our favorite is the hip carry. Since Ada is going through the separation anxiety right now, this carrier makes it easier for me to work and run errands. I highly recommend this carrier to every parent! I was able to find it on eBay for a great price. So if you are looking for a baby carrier, check out eBay first! 😉

And the little muchkin! Love this sweet little girl!
