Two Month Favorites

Here are a few favorite things that helped us survive the second month with Ella!

First up...her top 3 favorite places to nap:
(notice the crib is not on here, whoops!)

1. I got realllllly lucky and have a kid who loves the Mamaroo! In fact, she is currently chilling in it now, as I write this! This thing is can see all the details here. (The "car ride" setting is her fav!)
2. Our stroller and car seat are pretty awesome too. I love that the stroller has 3 wheels, like a jogging stroller (although, I haven't run with it yet, so the jury's still out on whether or not it can fill in for a full-fledged jogging stroller). And the car seat fits perfectly in need to buy any crazy adapters. Plus they are both super, super safe
3. The Rock n Play is probably my favorite favorite for this month (and definitely Trav's favorite...he carries it all over the house)! Ella could sit in that thing all day long if i made her. She is still sleeping in it at night and takes the majority of her naps in either that or the car seat. We will also be taking this with us when we go out of town this weekend! 
{Side note: I got this cute pattern at Target...because I HATE (hate, hate, hate) beige--which is the color of almost every other Rock n Play at every other store.}

1. My child is very, very strange and actually LIKES the Nose Frida!!?!? I know. Travis prefers the nasal aspirator we got from the hospital, but I have a hard time getting the snot out with that...the Nose Frida is awesome
2. Thank God for the person who invented these bags. No waiting to run things through the dishwasher--or worse, washing them by hand myself!
3. This month we have fed Elle Belle a few bottles and I have to say, I totally love the Dr. Brown's bottles. Yes, they have a lot of parts...but using those sterilizer bags really helps!

1. I'm going to be totally honest and say that I added these Aden + Anais swaddle blankets to my registry, because everyone had them on their "must-have" list, even though I wasn't totally sure what I would do with them. Now, I am obsessed with them! They are the perfect burp cloth, plus they make a great blanket and swaddle for when it's hot out. I foresee us using these tons more as the weather warms up!
2. These are my favorite swaddles. We also have some of the Halo Sleep Sack swaddles, but Ella busts out of those like nobody's business. She sometimes busts out of these, but it's a little more difficult.
3. This rattle is about the only real "toy" Ella has interest in at the moment. I use it to get her attention during our photo shoots and she actually will hold on to it from time to time. Plus, there's an owl on it, so obvi I needed to have it. 

And there ya go....another month of fun stuff for Elle Belle!

  1. I think you have the only child on the planet that likes their nose being sucked clean!
