Monthly Favorites: Month 12

This was the month of vacation treats! Clockwise from top left:

B.funkeys Tomato Electronic toy Fun Keys: I found these at Target, and I really liked that these keys are actually metal, instead of plastic, so maybe she'll think they're real.  Definitely still not as cool as my keys, but hey, you take what you can get.  These, along with some blocks, were surprises for the car ride in hopes of keeping her entertained.  I won't say they were the best thing ever, but she does seem to like them, and she likes pushing the buttons to make noise.

Magnetic Uppercase Capital Alphabet Letters: These things have been on our fridge for a couple of months now, but all of a sudden she is OBSESSED with them, particularly the green U.  You laugh, but she pulls it off first every time and crawls all around the house with it.  It's actually a little disconcerting, and if the green one can't be found, she goes for the red U next, but it's always only second place.  She is starting to like to put things in things, so I just set a bowl next to the fridge and she is happy for almost the whole time it takes to cook dinner.  Magic. Just make sure you get a big enough set, because she definitely tried to eat a letter from the first set I put out.

Swimways Baby Spring Float with Canopy: This thing is the best for the pool!  In Palm Desert, we probably saw 5 other babies with these, just contentedly floating around.  Depending on which way you face her, she tilts forward for kicking or backward for lounging.  Guess which one is her favorite.  #chillinoutmaxandrelaxinallcool

Munchkin Snack Tower: Clutch for taking multiple snacks, but who are we kidding, the kid only wants Goldfish. Actually, no joke, I've had multiple childless friends ask me where I got it because they want one for themselves.  It's that good.

Symphony in B Music Toy : So, Lilly has no idea how to use this thing yet, but she has discovered the Demo button, and pushes it no fewer than 436 times per day, often repeatedly to get to the song she wants.  It's pretty cute, but it reminds me of the days before musical toys...ahhhh the silence.  Also of note is that it is a fairly confusing toy, known to outsmart grandfathers, so make sure to read the instructions ;)

Pepperidge Farm Baked Goldfish Crackers: So, I won't mention any names, but someone who has a son named Jed and went on vacation with us introduced Lilly to Goldfish, and game over.  Not surprising, given the obsession Lindy and I had with them growing up (to the point that her mom made us lamps out of the Goldfish boxes in high school!!)  So really, it was only a matter of time, but now she will search them out if she even sees a hint of orange, so I try to save them for special occasions (like trips to Target when I need her to keep it together!)
