(Her very own) Wubbanub
Before Grace's first Christmas, we drove from New Orleans to Lexington, KY and Toledo, OH for two residency interviews before arriving home. On the way up, we stopped at a family friend's house for the night. Will's best friend from medical school and his wife Whitney gave Grace her wubbanub. Whitney was in her intern year of pediatrics and said these were a big hit. Honestly, I was dubious. A stuffed animal attached to a binky? Really...interesting?
Then, we stopped by Will's aunt and uncle's house for his UK interview. His little cousin M "borrowed" Grace's little binky and we couldn't find it. Desperately, I gave her the wubbanub and life was wonderful again!
Over a year later, Grace is still enamored with her dino. Sure, it looks silly - but the animal is light enough to carry around, sits on the baby's chest, helps the baby learn to grab on, and becomes a fast friend in the middle of the night.
And for all those times when Grace just needs some time to relax, her wubbanub and her blanket are there.
Grace has this blanket in blue, and it is her most favorite possession (after her dino wubbanub). Satin on one side and velvety on the other - this blanket is super soft and cuddly. Machine washable to boot!
This just arrived in the mail - and with all the rave reviews, and I am very excited to try and use it! We do not have the sink space we did in New Orleans, so the babies have to be washed in the tub - but small babies are slippery and small. This is the perfect solution: mildew resistant, light, contorts to hold baby slightly upright.
Life Without Limits 5k in Philly this April (for cerebral palsy research!). It's also going to give me few excuses to get outside with the girls every day during the summer, and a nice outlet for exercise and freedom.
It'll also be a good reason to revive my postpartum Couch to 5k training!
- Baby month stickers: still looking - any cute suggestions? I like this one and this one the most so far (I should probably order soon!)
- Noodle & Boo products: Your baby will smell like Heaven.
- Baby Shea Moisture lotion: when the mean cold winds dry out baby's soft skin!
- Boudreaux's Butt Paste Diaper Rash Ointment: yep.
- More bibs! These are perfect spit-up/ teething bibs - and so pretty too! These are the best for messy food.
- Diapers and wipes - we buy Luvs and Pampers.
Anything you splurged on for your baby? Any basics you're re-stocking?
Linking up with Jenna - hey-oh!
