Mommy & Ollie Favorites
It is Thursday & I am excited to share with you all some of my current favorites as well as Oliver's favorites! You can find the last one I posted here :) For me, this is just something fun I like to do & I always love reading other women's favorites & reviews on different products because it helps me decide if I want to purchase that particular item! Also, I know every child is different in what they enjoy, but these are truly Oliver's current favorites :)
On another note, I am so excited for Friday because that is the day of Matt's LAST final of this semester & then he has a month off! It has been a lot harder than I thought, with moving to a new state & having Matt gone or studying all the time. At the same time, these last few months have flown by & I am really hoping this next month will go at a turtle's pace ;) I am thankful that Matt has been so diligent with studying & if you all could pray for him tomorrow as he takes his last final, that would be great!
Now on to our favorites!
Kikkerland Disposable Straws I am an absolute fan of these biodegradable straws! I use them all the time in my iced coffees/water/juice/etc.. Even Matt uses them ;) Plus, they make every drink festive! These particular straws are from Amazon, but many times I just hop over to Target's dollar section & they have straw packs there as well!
EOS Organic Lip Balm I have two of these lip balms in Sweet Mint & Strawberry Sorbet. They smell amazing & feel great on my lips! Another plus is that I can easily find them in my diaper bag/purse & Oliver loves playing with them (perfect when you forgot to bring a toy to the market)!
Clover Bamboo Circular Needles I adore knitting & consider it a relaxing hobby. I really like using the bamboo needles (I buy mine from JoAnns) because they do not make that clanking noise that the metal needles do. I have been knitting since college & always have wanted to open an Etsy shop... Maybe just a dream, but we will see ;)
Knit Wrap/Robe I am so bummed Target doesn't sell the robe that I actually have (this is the closest one I found). I bought a gray quarter sleeved jersey robe from Target last year (right before I had Oliver). I wanted a light robe (I get hot really easily) that felt soft & this was the perfect one! The one I linked still is the same material, it just has full length sleeves!
Monsters Straw Sippy Cup Oliver loves drinking out of my cold tumblers & so I thought I would get him a fun one as well. We found this sippy cup at Target & I thought it was so fun with all the cute little monsters on it! He loves drinking out of it & it is perfect for smoothies as well. It does say dishwasher safe, but I recommend not putting the straw in the dishwasher because it WILL warp (learned from experience).
Green Toy Tug Boat Oliver actually got this little boat as a present for his 1 year birthday & he still loves it! It is his favorite toy to take in the bath (it does float) & he even plays with it outside of the bath. Plus, it has a wide spout that is great for rinsing him off! What I like is that it is made in the U.S. & from 100% recycled plastic milk jugs!
Tommee Tippee Bib Ok, so Matt & I should have purchased these way earlier for Oliver, but I didn't see the need. Boy, was I wrong! We had been using cotton bibs, but his clothes were so messy after every meal. A friend had these for her son & so we decided to try them out. I love them & they catch everything! Plus, Oliver uses them when he is teething (weird I know), but the rubber feels really good on his gums!
Baby Einstein Amazing Animals Oliver LOVES this book! This book is great for learning different animal noises (especially when mommy & daddy's animal noises sound awful!). This book keeps Oliver entertained at home or in the car for a good 5-10 minutes (which to us, seems like forever).
Happy Thursday & again, all these products were either a gift or we purchased them ourselves ;)
