Seven Month Favorites

Time continues to fly on by as we round out Harper's 7th & now almost 8th month. She is going to be one in the blink of an eye! I know people say this all the time, but it just gets better & more fun as they grow. She is so entertaining & silly... and totally surprises us every day with the new things she learns or does. We are just loving every minute of it! Seven month favorites are by far the best... so much fun stuff here!

Boon Bath Toys - We got into such a bath routine as part of a necessity that we almost forgot that it can be fun too! We picked up these bath toys (obviously because they are so stinking cute!) and it took bath time to a whole new level. She is sitting up in the tub now and has a blast playing with these & chewing on them. Plus, you better believe she has one in each hand when we take her out of the tub each night... which we discovered is the only way to keep her from screaming after her bath because she loves it so much! I can't wait to get her in swim class.. I think she'll love water just as much as her mama!
Old Navy Body Suits - Love the colors, the material & the way these fit SO much more than many other onesies out there.
UGG Infant Bixbee Bootie - Believe it or not, she still wears the smallest size of these, the same pair that she has worn since she was born. We LOVE these shoes. They're the only pair she can't pull off! Now that the weather is getting cooler, she has been wearing them every day and I just love them so much, can't wait to pick up another color of them this weekend.
Avent Sippy Cup - Another one of those things we couldn't grasp that she may be old enough for. Harper had her first cold two weeks ago, so we busted out the sippy to give her some water/juice and she is just loving this cup. It's so fun to watch her learn how to drink out of it... and best part... it is spill proof AND the sippy parts fit on standard Avent bottles.
Itzy Ritzy Cart & High Chair Cover - I already raved about this in another post, but it is honestly the best & most fun thing to have. No more stroller for this little chica when we are in Target... she is eye level & so totally entertained by all she can see! Also, IT'S SO FLUFFY! :)
Boon Squirt Spoon - These are so damn awesome it's not even funny. Especially when you have a hungry little bunny like I do who gets impatient waiting for food to be scooped onto a spoon. Only two parts to wash & takes up less room on the drying rack. We have one in the kitchen & one in the diaper bag for easy feeding on the go.
B. One Two Squeeze Blocks - Not only are these the prettiest blocks ever made, but they are perfect for little hands & little baby teeth.

And, if you're like me, you'll enjoy matching them to your baby's outfit.
 

Also, for a while we were feeling like Harper was totally over her Luv U Zoo Jumperoo. We were just about ready to pack it away, but all of a sudden she started loving it again! Maybe since she started crawling she just feels the need for speed to be more active, but she is all about this thing again! And not just for jumping, she randomly loves to sit under it!! We crack up because any time it is in the room, she will crawl right over to it and sit underneath.

  

I also wanted to thank you all for the sweet comments on our anniversary! We loved reading every single one of them! :) Time to go put some finishing touches on the outdoor Halloween decor & then take pics for a house tour per your request!

  

Don't forget, product recommendations for the upcoming months are always welcome! :)

  1. Love these! My son is 14 months old and when he started eating solids we began putting bite-size snacks in a little snack cup...I promise you will love it and will need several of these!

  3. All great products! Does Harper have a walker? We got the Combi All-in-One Activity Walker. It is by far one of the cutest walkers out there.
    My favorite part about it is that the activity part comes off and reveals a small tray so you can put your own toys on books on there. Max first could only bounce, but then he started going backward, then sideways and then forward. It was really fun to watch him try to go somewhere.
    Max was an early walker at 9 and a half months and I attribute it all to the skills he learned in his walker!

  6. Now that Little Harper is starting to use a sippi cup I strongly recommend the Booginhead Sippi Grip. It's a leash that wraps around the cup so it doesn't drop on the floor-one of the best things ever!

  12. We really like this snack cup for our 11 month old. It has softer plastic than the munchkin ones, those felt rough/scratchy for little hands.

    We love those blocks too!! They are super cute!

    My son doesnt have a walker, but does have a little push toy and I agree with the other commenter, I think it helped him walk sooner. His first steps were 10 months and is a pro at 11! :)

  16. Love reading your blog and seeing cute baby pics :). The Nosefrida is the grossest concept ever but I'll be damn if it doesn't suck every last bit of snot from baby's nose. It seriously is amazing...we have one upstairs and one downstairs so we're never caught without it during runny nose season. Plus my babe actually likes getting it done...he smiles the whole time! I do have to leave one final comment...GO HUSKERS!! :)

  17. Hehe, in the first pic your Harper reminds me of Chris Farley. Not an insult, btw! :)

  18. We love our Boon spoon (in orange) too! Best thing ever when we're out traveling.

    What bathtub do you use now that Harper's older and able to sit up on her own? And yes, put her in swim classes - the earlier the better! My son started last month and he absolutely loves it. They take to water like you wouldn't believe!
