1-Home Sweet Home Book// Gracie is obsessed with books. Especially books with flaps. This book is amazing because the flaps are super sturdy so she doesn’t rip them off. Gracie can read this book over and over and over. The flaps are easy for her to open and close and the pictures are fun for her to look at. She actually learned how to point while reading this book. It’s so cute to see her point to the different animals. We definitely recommend getting this book! Like, now.
2-Straw Sippy Cup// On one of my fun baby apps, it mentioned to start introducing sippy cups and straws this month. I didn’t really realize Gracie could do that yet, but sure enough… she loves it! She figured out the straw the first time it was in her mouth. That was pretty cool to watch. I give Gracie a few sips of water while I feed her solids. This is not the actual cup we have, but I’ve looked every where online for the cute bunny one we have, and I can’t find it! I got ours at Target!
3-Odd Balls// These are also from Target. It is a pack of four balls that are odd shaped and have odd textures. I randomly picked these up but I didn’t expect Gracie to have so much fun with them! She loves rolling them around and attempting to crawl to get them when they roll away. The different textures are fun for her to feel and taste.
4-Snugamonkey// Ah….. I love this thing. Lately my husband and I have been referring to it as the “miracle monkey”. When Gracie seems to be getting tired, we will lay her down with this monkey and she will occasionally fall asleep playing with it. If you’ve been reading the blog, or know anything about Gracie, you know that she is pretty tricky to get asleep. Well… this comfy little stuffed animal may be the secret!! It does not work every time, but I’ll take the few random times that it does work. What is awesome about this toy is that it makes her fall asleep in the car! It’s happened more than 4 times so I’m thinking its not a fluke? When I was a baby/little kid, I had a stuffed animal monkey that I brought everywhere. I was obsessed. So my mom and dad bought this for Gracie so she could have her own monkey. AWWW so cute.
5-Aden + Anais Dream Blanket// This blanket really is dreamy. It’s super soft (just like their swaddles) but way thicker and comfier. Lately, I have been laying this blanket down everywhere. Mostly on the ground so Gracie can practice crawling and rolling. But, we’ve taken this blanket to the beach and outside many times for Gracie to play. It folds up to fit small enough in my diaper bag, but it’s thick enough to be comfy. Also, I love the cute design it has on it!
