Puddle Jumper Deluxe Life Jacket

I recently purchased the Puddle Jumper Deluxe Life Jacket and I was really pleasantly surprised at how great it worked and how much my 3 year old son liked wearing it.  We were at Wisconsin Dells this past weekend and I had wanted to find something to keep him afloat while in deeper water with his dad or me; he dislikes the bulkiness of a typical life jacket and I really only was looking for something to keep him up in the pool (with one of us right there with him) so I checked into the "water wing" options and had him try on quite a few styles before deciding to purchase the Puddle Jumpers.  I didn't know how well they would work until we hit the pool and they were great!  He floated and his head was above water at all times, he didn't tip forward or backward in the water, and could easily paddle his arms and kick his legs - his mobility was not comprimised at all.  Without this on he would have sunk like a rock but he was able to float, play, and attempt to move himself through the water with the Puddle Jumper Life Jacket on and it was so fun for him!

Description from the Manufacturer:
  • Coast Guard Approved
  • Patented Design
  • Superior Stability & Confidence
  • Woven polyester - Softer Fabric, Less Chafing
  • Type III Performance
  • Weight: 30 - 50 lbs

In conclusion, I would highly recommend the Puddle Jumper Life Jacket to anyone looking for something to keep their child afloat and help get them accustomed to being in deeper water/learn to swim.

Fisher-Price Precious Planet Projection Mobile

I have been using the Fisher-Price Precious Planet Projection Mobile for over 9 months now for my daughter and we both love it.  It has a variety of sounds and songs for her to fall asleep to as well as adorable animals for her to watch above, including images that are projected on the canopy/ceiling.  Fisher-Price is a dependable brand and this is a very well made product.  I especially love the remote control; if baby is not sleeping by the time the mobile turns itself off (about 20 minutes after you turn it on) you can reset it with the remote without letting baby see you, so as to not disturb her (or let her think it's time to get up!)

LeapFrog Learn & Groove Musical Table

I purchased the Learn & Groove Musical Table for my son when he was first starting to pull himself up to stand and it has been a great investment!  Since 2008 I have used it for my son, children in my daycare, and now my 9 month old daughter.  It has held up wonderfully and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to purchase an activity table for a young toddler.

Description of Features (from the manufacturer)

Colorful, interactive learning stations introduce early reading, math and language development skills through fun and engaging activities. Flip the center page to Music mode and your baby will move and groove to more than 40 songs and melodies, including nursery rhymes, real instrument sounds and upbeat dance tunes. Folds flat for easy travel and storage.

Hair Accessories from Bitty Bows Boutique

After having my daughter in June (her gender was a surprise to us) I was beyond excited to buy "girlie" clothing and to start adorning her head with bows and other adorable hair accessories.  She was born with quite a bit of fuzz and I could start right away thanks to hair bows from Bitty Bows Boutique.  Bitty Bows Boutique is an online boutique specializing in bows and hair accessories for babies and toddlers.  There are a ton of styles to choose from and also a variety of clips, so no matter how much hair your little babe has she can sport a bow or some other adorable accessory from the boutique.  All of the styles that I have tried have lived up to my high quality expectations and were well worth the money.  Shipping was fast and inexpensive and the customer service was excellent.  Although there are a multitude of options, I'll talk about two of my favorite hair bow styles here:
