I decided to do another baby essentials post because I love finding out about cool and useful baby products on other blogs, so I wanted to share what P is into these days.
We got one of these from a friend who's daughter "outgrew" it and I didn't think much of it. Then teething started kicking out butt and I decided to try putting an ice cube in it to see if that would help P's sore gums. He LOVED it - I think the combination of the cold ice plus the texture of the mesh feels amazing on his gums. He gets 1-2 ice cubes a day in this thing and get so excited when he sees me pull it out and open the freezer. We haven't tried any food in it, but I plan to put grapes into it soon so P can chomp on them.
Zip Up Footed PJ's
I know people have different preferences on zipper vs. snaps for jams. We are a zipper family. It just so much easier, especially when he's wiggly or super tired and about to have a meltdown. The only downside is that his whole lower body and belly has to come out to change his diaper (vs. the snaps that you just open the bottom of), but we still prefer the zipper ones for their ease and quickness.

Crane Humidifier (we have the dog one)
Nose Frida - LOVE LOVE LOVE that thing! Gross, but so effective!). It's quiet, easy to fill with water and adorable.
OXO Tot Sprout Highchair
|This is his first time in the highchair|
|The typical scene when Preston eats - his "shadow" waiting to help him clean up any scraps!|
|Preston isn't impressed with the broccoli, but he loves the high chair!|
We gave P a sippy cup around 5 months and I literally bought Target out of every single cup they had so we could find one that he would like.That turned out to be pointless because the second we handed him this straw sippy cup, he was in love! We don't even use any other cups really because he just loves the straw one so much. I was surprised that he knew to suck and got some water even the first time that we tried it.
|He takes his sippy VERY seriously!|
HALO Sleep Sacks
Skip Hop Hare Brush and Comb Set
|Evidence of the crazy side hair! Albert Einstein!|
The past few months, Preston has really started to take an interest and shows a preference to certain toys, so here's my list of toys that are P tested and approved!
Puppy Tails Book - he loves rubbing the tails all over his face and the crinkle noise that the book makes
OBall - easy for him to grab onto and it's helping him with crawling because he is constantly chasing it when it rolls away
Fisher Price Soothe and Glow Seahorse - He gets mesmerized by the glowing tummy and loves to grab on to the fins on the sides of the seahorse
Baby Einstein Take Away Tunes - He recently started loving this toy - he loves the beads on the handle and pushing the button to play the different music
Bright Starts Grab and Stack Blocks - His favorite thing to do with these is to have me stack them and then he attacks it and makes them fall. Such a boy already!
Sassy Crib and Floor Mirror - Pres likes to look at himself in the mirror. Like, alot. He just loves this mirror, plain and simple.
Any other baby items that we should know about??
