Things We Love Part 3

Can you believe this is already the third part of things we love? I know I can’t! But here I am with a few things that we have loved during Aedan’s 3rd month. I had a harder time coming up with a list this time because we are still loving everything from last month (check out part 1 and part 2). However, I managed to come up with a few new things.

Aedan has not been a fan of his carseat ever since he was old enough to realize he was strapped in it. This made using our BOB stroller with the carseat on top difficult for walks. imagesI knew he was far to small and young to ride in the regular seat part of the stroller…or so I thought. After some online researching I found out that a lot of people use a Kiddapotamus Snuzzler in their jogging strollers. It is made to use in carseats with newborns, but it is great in the stroller! photoAedan is able to sit in the regular seat with his neck supported and his body snug and secure. It makes going for walks a much more enjoyable for all of us now. In fact as part of our evening routine we typically take a short walk through the neighborhood before bath time. Sometimes Aedan just zones out and enjoys the ride and other times he takes a little catnap.








In my old car Aedan’s carseat had to go behind the passenger seat. The front seat would have to be moved almost all the way forward. Whenauto seat protector_hero_lg we got the Forester we gained tons room and we are now able to fit the carseat behind the drivers seat with room to spare. We wanted to protect our brand new leather seats so I picked up this seat cover. It’s great because it has little pockets in the front that make keeping things from an extra outfit to my nursing cover organized and in the car at all times. 20046_A_largeI also picked up this little mirror. I love it! I haven’t really notice Aedan looking at himself (which he does all the time on his playmat) but I love being able to glance in the rearview mirror and see his sweet little face.





I recently downloaded the Google reader app for my iphone and I wish I had found it months ago! Aedan nurses 7 times a day for about 30 minutes at a time, that’s 3.5 hours a day at least). Most of the time I nurse him in the living room while I watch TV but early in the morning and at night I usually nurse him in his room and this little app lets me easily check up on all the blogs I follow from the rocking chair.


 I got this night light at one of my showers and I thought it was so cute. The turtle shell has little star cut outs on it so when the light is on, the ceiling is covered with stars. I love it because it is easy to tap on and it has a timer so it goes off by itself. I also love that it runs on batteries so it  is easy to move around. I used it a lot during the first few months of night feedings. Aedan hadn’t really noticed it until recently. He has been sleeping from 8/8:30pm to 6/6:30am every night since he was about 7 or 8 weeks old. Last week he went through a growth spurt and he was eating more frequently during the day. He also woke up once a night for about 3 nights. I would go into his bedroom and tap on the turtle night light. I would look over at him in the crib and he would have a huge smile on his face as he looked up at all the stars on the ceiling. It was too cute (although it probably would have been even more cute if it wasn’t 3:30am). Luckily he has gone back to sleeping through the night.




Aedan has really started to notice the toys on his playmat. I hung some of these rings from a few of the toys. Aedan grabs them and pulls on them all the time. When he is sitting in his bouncy seat we put a couple of rings in his hand. He used to just wave them around but now he tries to get them in his mouth. Most of the time he gets it to his nose, forehead or cheek and the few times he gets it to his mouth he makes a face like he is thinking “um this doesn’t taste as good as I thought it would”.
