Bananas in Pajamas

Happy Friday! Our week went by too quickly... wow, did I really just say that? I must be growing up...
I had a presentation on Tuesday in my "Psychology and Sociology of the Exceptional Student" class, and let me tell you, I rocked it. When it comes to college classes, my biggest pet peeve is when the student, or teacher, reads directly from the PowerPoint during a presentation. Now I know I'm growing up. But seriously, we are in college, I think we all can read. Show a little effort and take the time to memorize at least a little about your topic! Okay, that's my end of the week rant.

We finally made the time to scout out some good "first time food" for Austin. It's recommended that infants start solids on a day that you are able to stay home, so that you can look for allergic reactions and such. Makes sense. I'm just so glad we finally got to experience this!

So... what did we choose to feed him first...?

Totally kidding.
If only, right?

The real deal. Can you tell what it is?

Bananas for the win!
 Such a let down after those Krispy Kremes.

Well, at least someone got to enjoy a donut.

As of now, I don't think Austin is too much of a fan of big people food. Hopefully he will come around soon, you know what Julia Child says about people who love to eat...

1.  Bedtime Bath-- Austin takes a bath every night before bedtime & this stuff is great with helping him calm down after his incredibly busy day ;) It also doesn't burn his eyes if I get a tiny bit in them... I'm not saying I do...
2.  Cloud B Soothing Sounds Sleep Sheep-- Any little sound machine is necessary, in my opinion, for bedtime. This is the one we have, and within 10 minutes, Austin is out. His favorite setting is the heartbeat sound.
3.  Gap Chambray Hat-- We got this about a month ago, so Gap no longer has them in stock... 
but Juan and I Austin loves it! I highly recommend a summer hat to keep baby's face shaded, not to mention they are too cute!
4.  Baby Einstein Activity Saucer-- This is for 4+ months, but we started using it at 3. Austin is still getting used to it, but he has definitely taken more of a liking towards it this past month. As of now, it keeps him entertained for about 15 minutes at a time. Just enough time to get a quick shower!
5.  Bright Starts Flexi Ball-- This is currently Austin's favorite toy. He shakes it and shakes it, sometimes I even find him sucking on it or Hulk smashing it on Duke's head. 
6. Bunn Water Heater-- Juan's dad actually just bought this for us, and I am in love. Just boil water and pour it in to the canister, and it stays hot for days! It's quick, clean looking, and great for middle of the night feedings.


  1. Very soon I'll be there to see my grandbaby and I'll feed him some yummies, too!

  2. I cannot wait to get to hold the little bugger.
