Shapes and Stuff.


These cute fridge magnets were $3/set at Target the other day. One set is actually shapes AND numbers and the other set is the alphabet. I put the numbers and letters up for another day because she is just barely one so let’s start with shapes. And mostly because I didn’t want to pick up fifty magnets from the floor seventeen times per day. Nine magnets will be plenty thankyouverymuch.

Also added to the bottom line is two packs of Pampers at $10.99 each. We still use them at night but I’m putting them on too early (or the baby is staying up too late!!) so we are going through more than one disposable diaper per night.

This Burt’s Bees rash cream was in the Clearance bin at Harris Teeter. I am not sure why because it wasn’t expired or anything but it’s one of the kinds that we use at night so I saved four dollars. Yay, me. I clearly need all the help I can get.


I bought some more ‘toddler snacks’ to try since she refuses purees and I need something that travels.

What is your favorite on-the-go snack that travels well in a diaper bag? I’m desperate for ideas.


Babystar looooooves the shopping cart.


Oh! And I forgot to add these star-shaped cookie cutter sets we bought from Amazon for various party star-shape needs. I suspect we will use them a lot with Babystar. $3.99/each.



It’s all Freaking Applesauce.

Happy Baby. Happy Tot. Sprout. Gerber. Ella’s Kitchen. Plum Organics.

Whatever. It’s all freaking applesauce anyway, right? Ugh. My receipts say I’ve spent $73.63 on pouch food and cardboard snacks since I last tallied. Especially annoying since she’s no longer about that puree life. (Ok, but she still eats it sometimes.)

(Those Gerber Arrowroot cookies are legit cookies, though. Yum. So yummy in fact that they cannot be healthy but she likes them and I’m all about getting Babystar to want to feed herself.)
