Happy 10 month birthday Benjamin! And a list of must-haves for Moms


My little Benjamin is ten months old today. In a way the time has flown, but it also kind of feels like he's always been with me, life without him seems so long ago.

These days Ben is doing so well. There are ups (he's so easily entertained, and has the best laugh I've ever heard) and downs (he sleeps for about 5 minutes in a 24 hour period) but overall he's amazing. Two little teeth have made their appearance, with more on their way (hence the sleeplessness days/nights) and I don't think I ever realized just how ridiculously cute baby teeth are!

I thought I would gather a little list of must-haves that I find I'm totally dependent on these days. If you're a Mom with a little one, I highly recommend grabbing these if you don't already have them! 

  1. Jungle Exersaucer - I remember registering for this thinking "Man this is hideous". And yeah, it is. But I thank god for it every single day.
  2. Winnie the Pooh Slide and Learn Book - Ben got this book from his Great Grandma as a present before he was born, and I think it may be his favourite toy of all. He's been playing with it for months and can't get enough.
  3. Bead Roller Coaster - We just got this for Ben and he LOVES IT.
  4. Rubber Duck - Ben's Aunt Cassie bought this for him and he can't have a bath without it.
  5. Stacking Cups - For $2.99, you'd be surprised how much little ones get a kick out of these. I really feel like Ikea rules when it comes to toys.
  6. Baby Spoons - I love these so much...we go through a LOT of them (Ben needs his own to play with during every meal time.
  7. Superbibs - These are such a good size and they keep baby dry (especially one like mine who gets 90% of his water in his lap.
  8. Sleepsack - I didn't even really know about this (somehow) until Ana told me about them, and Ben's been sleeping in one ever since. 
  9. Playmat - This thing is so cute, and being on the living room floor every day I have to be able to tolerate looking at it.
  10. Activity Triangle - This is the perfect toy for babies who are sitting but not standing yet. 
Happy shopping!  And happy birthday once again to my sweet Ben. I love you more than I love M&M's. For real.
