Along with turning 3 months old, Rhett has grown to love a few things that seem to do the trick around here!
First up, the exercise ball! A MUST for soothing babies into a deep sleep! My cousin Kelly sent this to me – a mother of 3 knows all! This has saved the day many times – when nothing else worked – this did! Another perk – started working on getting those abs back into shape! For bath time, we have been loving the Johnson and Johnson’s lavender soothing baby line compliments of Rhett’s Aunt Colleen! The yummy and relaxing scent goes nicely with bed time! Also, we love the Kiehl’s Baby Lotion – make skin so soft! My friend Kathryn gave us a set of baby soap from Beekman – the bar soap allows for easy bath cleaning. Rhett is starting to understand music and colors! The iPhone is coming in handy while going on walks and playing on the floor. He loves the Baby Einstein app that displays bright colors and plays fun music. We also love the Baby Einstein Pandora station – not only does it play the coolest nursery music like Chicago and Aerosmith but Rhett especially loves it. Easy on Mommy and Daddy’s ears too! The owners of our favorite local jewelry store, Levy’s, sent the most precious gift for Rhett – a silver rattle with his name and birthdate. We put this handsome gift to use and Rhett loves shaking it around. It’s a good size and weight to help Rhett build up his throwing arm (per Patrick!). After many exhausting efforts in changing the crib sheet, my friend Sarah suggested the Ultimate Crib Sheet – boy, was I missing out! Because of the bumper, it’s pretty difficult to get the sheet off and on the mattress, so this clever find just snaps on top – making for easy change out. What a time saver! Lastly, baby massage! My cousin, Kelly, also sent me an instructional guide on techniques for baby! I’ve been trying out a few moves and it seems to really relax Rhett. What a lucky boy – when does mommy get a message I wonder? I’ll cash in a few shoulder rubs when he’s older!
