I thought I would share some things that are currently rocking my world in the baby category.
1. JJ Cole Bundle Me - I know that these are controversial with some but we love them. It's so much nicer than a blanket/jacket combo during this crazy snow. I'm very cautious to make sure Trey is snuggled into it as well as making sure the straps to the car seat are the correct tightness. This is a definite must-have in my book. (FYI I was able to find mine last summer at TJ Maxx for $16! A steal!)
2. You will notice that every picture that involves Trey and his car seat also has this cute little giraffe in it as well. If you're not a mom I'd like to introduce you to Sophie La Giraffe (aka your new go-to baby shower gift). And if you're already a mom, I'm sure you already know her and/or her friends. Trey has been obsessed with Sophie for what feels like forever now. And even though my husband wants to call her an extremely overpriced dog toy, I don't care. In this mom's eyes - she is worth every penny! I often consider ordering another one "just in case".
3. Consignment Shops - before I had Trey I didn't think twice about consignment stores. The one I had went to was messy, hard to navigate, and just didn't have anything I needed. Well turns out sometimes you need to look around. I've now found a few great ones close by. When the time came to get Trey a jumper I just couldn't justify $130+ after all the money we had spent on Christmas gifts. So I looked on Craigslist, didn't find what I needed. I then checked out a local consignment shop and was able to get this almost brand new jumper. (The tag says 2009 and it's in great shape) for - $30! He loves it and I won't feel bad that he will outgrow it soon and I'll throw it in the attic until our next little one needs it. (Which might I add, will be a very long time from now.)
See? He loves it!
