This has been a crazy past two months! Turner seems to be growing before our eyes! It’s hard to believe he will be one in less than a month!! He is hilarious and really forming a personality. His favorite thing to play with is the vacuum. It might have something to do with me vacuuming everyday while I was pregnant?? When he’s grumpy, I’ll start vacuuming, and he follows me around laughing hysterically and squealing! The second I shut it off, he starts to cry… insanity, I know!
He’s like a real person now! He does things to make us laugh, like stinky face (I’m sure you can imagine) and waving “hellooooo”.
He’s saying Mama, Dadda, and Dede (for Dexter, a.k.a Decky our dog, who Turner is obsessed with).
He’s standing up and cruising on everything (furniture, cabinets, my legs).
It’s hard to believe that Turner is turning into such a big boy! He plays with big boy toys and even needed a big boy car seat! Here are some of our favorites from the past two months.
1 Silicone Muffin Cups I’ve actually had these for a while. In the past I used them to make muffins and cupcakes. But they were really hard to clean and annoying. Luckily, I saved them! They are absolutely PERFECT for freezing baby food. I use the ice cube trays too, but Turner eats a TON of food, so these make bigger portions. I just pour the baby food into the cups and put them in the freezer. Once they’re frozen, I pop them out of the cup and into a ziplock bag with a label on them. To thaw, I place a few into a tupperware and put in the fridge overnight. Or, I just heat one up in a saucepan to melt it.
2 Fisher-Price Learn Through Music TouchPad We got this from Stew’s friend. Turner LOVES it! We had the Elmo game in, but couldn’t handle him. So we put Winnie the Pooh in! MUCH BETTER. Turner just slaps it and plays the same things over and over. It’s really funny to watch. He doesn’t quite get it yet. But, I’ll tell you what, I sure know my seasons now!
3 Toy Race Car These were also a gift. They’re the bigger cars, so Turner can’t choke on them. He pushes them around the entire house and chases them! He loves them.
4 Evenflo Convertible Car Seat We actually got this when Turner was about 10 months. He was definitely outgrowing his old seat. He was about 30 inches long at the time. He cried whenever we went in the car and he was a sweaty mess when we took him out. This was our hint that he was extremely uncomfortable. So we took the plunge. It was worth it! He loves his pimped out ride!
5 Baby Trend Expedition Jogger We had a hand-me-down stroller since he was born, so we never actually had to buy a stroller. We bought this the same day we got his car seat. It is a GREAT stroller, especially for the price! It rides so smoothly, and takes bumps like a champ. It’s great for our normal walks, but it’s a beast in the park or on the beach. I LOVE it and so does Turner!
