Fifteen month baby favorites

10 April 2017

June is a girl on the move these days, practically running everywhere she goes. This is such a fun age, and we have been delighting in our sweet, funny girl! These are a few of the items helping us keep up with her at fifteen months!

— June is actually very good at eating off a plate, so we don’t use these too often, but for places that don’t have plates (like Chick-fil-a!), these stick-on table toppers are helpful.

— June outgrew her sunhat from last year, so we replaced it with this one. The chambray goes with almost everything!

— I don’t frequent Kohl’s too often, but when I ran in recently to make a return I was wowed by the Carters spring girl collection! SO much cuteness, including the above leggings (which June has), this sweatshirt set, this buffalo check romper, this outfit (reminds me of John Robshaw or Roberta Roller Rabbit!), this anorak (we might buy this for the fall – so cute!), and this swimsuit.

— I might be the only blogger alive who doesn’t love Honest products, but aside from their diapers, I just haven’t found them that effective for our family. We started using the Burt’s Bees original lotion a few weeks ago, and love it so much more!

— Target’s Cat & Jack hair bows are our favorite right now. They’re adorable, and also only $2 each, which is great because despite my best efforts we lose them left and right.

— June still prefers to explore outside over playing with almost any toy, but she does love her band in a box (maracas!).

— I am a little unsure as to whether I want to list June’s convertible car seat as a favorite, because I have some mixed feelings about it. I didn’t do a ton of research before we bought it, because we got a large gift card to Nordstrom at the same time we were shopping for a new seat, and I liked the look of this one and it had great safety ratings. We do like it, and June does seem to think it’s maxi cozy, but the straps are hard to tighten (which may, I freely admit, be user error).

— We use the Cloud Baby Monitor app on our phones and laptops as our monitor when we’re traveling. It has unlimited range and works great!

— I’m using this slide as a stand-in for playgrounds in general, which June loves in all shapes and sizes – especially slides, stairs, and swings!

  1. I love a lot of honest products, but I will say that the lotion doesn’t do it for me either! We literally purchased the maxi cosi yesterday and Beau’s used it for one car ride and I thought the same thing about tightening the straps.. now I’m wondering about if we should return it and try again!

    I wasn’t a huge fan of Burts Bees until I tried their extra dry lotion and, while I don’t love the smell, it’s the only lotion that was nourishing and non greasy and actually kept my skin flake-free all winter (yay!). I also used their belly butter and again, not a fan of the smell, but at 37 weeks I’ve never had itchy belly like many of my friends.

    I love following along these posts. I’ve used them often as we approach baby. I’d still love to see a “What’s in your diaper bag post” mostly because I find minimalist-tending baby posts hard to find!

    Emma! You are in luck! I have already written a post about what’s in our diaper bag, and here it is: http://www.emformarvelous.com/whats-in-our-diaper-bag/

  3. Good to know about the carseat. We have a Diono Rainier for our son and it’s been great but the removable and washable seat covers on the maxi cosi seemed really tempting this time around with our second baby.

    We haven’t had to remove/wash the cover yet, but we know another family who has the same seat and they’ve removed the cover dozens of times to wash it and can attest that it’s super easy to do! So major thumbs up in that department!

  4. Those little floral leggings are the cutest thing ever!

    I know, I would gladly take a pair in my size!

    I have the Chicco NextFit convertible seat, which had great reviews, and I loved the Chicco infant car seat; HOWEVER, the straps on this one drive me insane. Like yours, they are hard to tighten. I heard it gets easier when it’s used forward-facing and just generally gets easier over time, but I’ve been frustrated for a few months now. Also, I am in a car (not an SUV or minivan) and ultimately I find it inconvenient because it’s like a bucket – no easy way to get him in or out because I have to lift him over the side of the seat, if that makes sense. The sides on the NextFit are really high.

    Just wanted you to know that I feel your pain with the frustrating car seat. :)

    I totally know what you mean about the side of the seat – I think it must be an issue with all convertible car seats, because June’s is the same way! Ugh!
