more must haves

I thought I’d do another “must haves” list now that we’ve reached a year. These are items we’ve purchased or received within the last 6 months that we have loved.

  1. Chicco Hook On Chair
    Our place is small so we opted not to get a high chair. We got the Fisher Price seat as a gift at our baby shower and while it’s nice, I prefer the Chicco. Mainly because it puts baby up at table-level rather than lower in a seat. It is also more portable and comfy since it’s cloth instead of hard plastic. Cleanup is a bit harder (need to throw it in the wash fairly frequently), but I really love this seat!

  3. Tiny Diner
    This is a great product when you are out at restaurants. Most restaurant high chairs just pull up to the table, meaning there is no tray for baby and he/she has to eat off the table. This has suction cups that grip onto the table’s surface to keep it in place. It is clean and cute and we love it.

  5. Tails book
    Baby got this for his birthday and it has become his most favorite book (and he LOVES his books, so that means something). It has touch and feel, flaps, and pulls – all the things little hands love. It’s adorable to boot. I just noticed there are more books like this by the same author. I think we need more!

  7. Tub mat
    I won’t link to one as I think they are all similar (let me know if you feel that you have a superior one), but this was an essential as S likes to jump and jive in the tub. This helps it not be so slippery.

  9. Ergo baby carrier
    I got mine on BabySteals.com for $70 and I’m so glad I did. You may remember that I had S in the Ergo for Comic-Con back in July and it worked out great. He was comfy and close to Mama, and napped when he needed to with no problems at all. Sometimes the stroller is just too much trouble. If you want one, keep an eye on BabySteals as they come up somewhat regularly!

first birthday

After much discussion, we have settled on a theme for S’s first birthday party: Winter ONEderland. Winter is our favorite time of year and baby’s birthday is a few days before Christmas, so it’s a good fit. We got these invitations, with matching thank you cards and month labels for displaying pics of S from birth-1 year.

And we are going to get this outfit for S to wear:

It will be a small mostly family gathering at our place. We’re planning on using a blue/silver/white color scheme and we’ll decorate using snowflakes, snowmen, and other wintery (but not Christmasy) items. Thinking about doing a hot chocolate bar with mix ins for kids (marshmallows, whipped cream, etc.) and adults (Baileys!). Still need to figure out food (I’m thinking maybe a big pot of turkey chili and snacky stuff). We’re also doing small bags of brown sugar cookies in snowflake and 1 shapes for favors. Any other ideas out there?

I’d love to hear about others birthday ideas, too! One – too crazy!
