I see results of surveys in various parenting magazines of what the most popular and hottest baby products are. It gets me thinking about the various products that have helped Ryan and I through our kids' infanthood and what is now getting us through their childhood--consumables we buy again and again and other baby items we have used and just can't get rid of thinking the good Lord is not done expanding our family. ;)
I distinctly remember having this when I was a kid--or maybe it was one of my siblings. No matter. I believe I got this as a baby shower gift and it has stood the test of time, having been taped up many times due to pages falling out and the cover separating. While you always want your Bible intact, it's good to know that when it's falling apart you know it's been put to good use.
2. Aveeno Lotion and Sunscreen
This has been a perfect go-to snack for years. Hannah used to call them "yellow bars". She still says that sometimes. :) Autumn now enjoys them as well, even if she does pick off the chocolate chips before actually eating it.
4. Little People
We had two of them--one was Leap Frog and the other was Fisher Price We got the Leap Frog saucer when Hannah was a baby. It was about $80 and I believe my mom and my aunt got it for us. It was great when Hannah was more sturdy on her legs, but she was so short we had to put pillows under her feet! Aside from that, she bounced like a crazy fool!!! I was sorry when she outgrew it, but beyond thrilled we held onto it for Autumn because she was also a psycho jumper. Autumn also enjoyed the bouncer at church (pictured on the left), and Ryan found one at a consignment shop for $25! We snatched it up, and Autumn all but wore that out as well. It was more like a Johnny Jump-Up if anyone happens to remember those (I know my mom does). You would think our kids have legs of steel!
6. Portable DVD Players
Tad is that well-known frog adorning the packaging of many LeapFrog products. I got this for Christmas 2004, while Hannah was still in utero. It is currently in her room, no doubt snuggled in her bed. I'm startled if I see a brand new one on the shelf in a store--startled to see how green and clean it looks!
