I have been meaning to write this post for a while. . . and now that Luke is fully walking, I thought I should write it before I forget. I find it the most helpful to read or hear about what things other parents have used and had success with their kids. So, here are a few of mine and Luke’s favorite things – crawling edition!
He loved pushing anything and everything around and really liked this VTech – Sit-to-Stand Learning Walker.
I can’t believe this are the only 2 pictures I have with this toy. . . he plays with it all the time. But I guess I can believe that the TV remote and dog’s water dish are always more fun. . . <sigh>
He liked pushing it around as well as playing with all the buttons on the front. And still does, even though he is walking! Recent pic from this weekend. . .
So simple but used so much – this ring stack is a staple must-have! Fisher-Price Brilliant Basics Rock-a-Stack. We actually keep it in the bathroom for him to play with while we are getting ready in the morning.
Yes. I know the orange ring is missing. . . it’s around here somewhere.
Once he started crawling – he was into everything so baby proofing was a must! We used these corner guards on the coffee table in the living room (Prince Lionheart Corner Guards, Chocolate Brown) and child locks (KidCo Swivel Cabinet & Drawer Lock 4ea) on all the cabinets and drawers.
We started introducing a sippy cup and love this one. Zo-li Bot Straw Sippy Cup –>added bonus – he knows how to drink out of a straw now!
This was an awesome tip from Sarah – for the crib! Fisher-Price Luv U Zoo Crib ‘N Go Projector Soother.
Plays music and projects an image on the ceiling. We play it at bedtime while he is falling asleep. And he can play with it in the morning too.
We got this placemat for at restaurants.
Summer Infant Tiny Diner – Blue. I was on the fence if we should get it. .. reading the reviews they weren’t the greatest and I agree with them. The mat stains quickly, Luke likes to try to pull it off the table and it doesn’t stick the greatest. .. but it still works better than nothing and we take it when we eat out. And I like the little tray at the bottom/side that catches A LOT of food!
I also got these Brinware placemats too. ..
They are a nice thing to roll up and put in the diaper bag and put down where ever he is eating.
So, there you go, a few of the things that have made our life a *little* bit easier in the past few months.
If have kids, I hope this helped. If you don’t, pin this to your “may need in the future” Pinterest page!
