Our little sweetie hit the BIG 6 months mark!! I really can't believe how fast little ones grow. She is now a whopping 16lbs and is happy and teething. I thought it might be fun to make a list of our top picks of items we could not have lived without during those first 6 months. Oh the joys of being a parent! We are loving every minute. Let me know if you have any favorites that have been your lifesavers.

In no particular order:

~Nursing cover
~Burp cloths/Bibs
~ "Lavender" and "Baby Me" essential oils
~Bouncy chair
~2 cuddly pink blankies

Love this post. Oh darling Haven she is so sweet. If only time would let us take in each moment when they are so young because time flies. I hate the time to pack up some baby things as they move to a new makes me really sad but I do love watching them grow and change as well.

Jill, I was looking at a friends blog and started clicking on her friends' blogs and saw yours and it is so cute. I can't believe how quickly our little ones grow and it seems like you just had Haven because she is so cute and little. We need to get she and Ellie together to play.

I thought you might want to know with the teething thing, Hylands teething tablets really worked wonders.
