What you need Wednesday - Taggie Blankets

Most people have seen these nowadays they seem to be all over the place.
A sweet friend of ours made a taggie blanket for baby E and she LOVES it!  It goes with us everywhere.  The cool thing about these is all of the different textures on the blanket and in the ribbons along the outsides, and they come in really cool patterns.
Here are a few that I found on from Little Miss Monkeys.
For the little man or lady in your life these blankets sell for $11.50 plus shipping and handling.  
I have been loving buying homemade things for E.  They are unique and different, not to mention we're helping people working from home :)  I wish I have the creativity these people have.

Thanks Megs for our blanket!

Until next time - Jenna

What you need Wednesday

Over the last few months of having Baby E people have been approaching me about what I have found useful in the world of baby products and what is a waste of time and money.  I remember registering for things and thinking.... where do you even begin?  I had never had a baby and knew nothing of what the day to day would bring us.

So in light of that question I thought I'd start a "what you need" series.  I'll give tips of what I've found useful and what products Baby E loves.  We would also love to know what you have found useful!

This is one of the wet bags we have for the diaper bag c/o Lavender Strings  I use it to put all the dirty diapers in when we are out on the town, they are a cloth exterior with a waterproof plastic lining.

They are all handmade and come in all different fun colors - bonus they are machine washable and to dry turn them inside out.
I have a couple for Baby E because as some of you know with babies you are always misplacing things!  I have even used one as a makeup bag :)  This week Lavender Strings is running a coupon deal!

Thanks Ali (owner of Lavender Strings) for being so creating and such a good Auntie to Baby E!

Seven months already...

 In two days our little E will be 7 months old... we can't believe it.
 She has been working on figuring out how to pull open the cupboards in the kitchen for weeks now.  Then we turned around and today was the day she has mastered her goal.  Time for us to now run (very fast) to Babies R Us and start the much needed baby proofing of the house!
 So proud mommy!
 Happy 7 months bean, we love you!
 For those safety conscious - we watch her every move in this walker, don't worry!

A Friday morning.

This is the happy girl that we get to wake up to every morning.  I don't know anyone else who can roll over in bed at 5:00am and give you a big toothless grin like they just had the best sleep of their life.  Oh, to be 6 months again.
This morning went something like this...
Wake up and nurse.
Run around and get ready for work.
Baby E and daddy snuggle in bed for a bit longer.
Make coffee - if we're lucky.

Run out the door to try to get to work and everywhere in between by 7am.
 This morning we were ahead of schedule.  This morning E kept wiggling closer to her daddy in bed and almost wiggled him off the edge (it may have been the cutest thing I had ever seen). This morning I was 15 min early to work (a rarity).... then I found out I didn't have to be there till 10am instead of the 7am I had first thought.  So, now i get to sit and drink my coffee...catch up on the wonderful world of blogging I have been missing and smile with my baby girl just a little bit more.

This is how a Friday morning should be. 

Happy Friday.
