I've seen it done on other blogs, and well, I'm bored while Kinley naps and decided to start my own.
Here we go.....
My "must haves" for a toddler
She adores her Playtex sippy cup.
And she also feels like top dog when she uses her straw cups. But we only have two of those.
We are still big fans of the "spill proof" snack cups. Each morning she has some Trix in her cup. And they almost always end up going to the dog.
And since she is not too big on milk, we go through lots of this Motts for Tots. We still water it down 50/50 and she only gets one or two cups of it a day. Otherwise, it's water. We do offer milk with every meal but it is in a "special" milk cup with a regular straw. Hey, she drinks it that way and at this point, it's whatever works.
She's also a big fan of the fruit punch. Watered down, of course.
She just loves animals....especially cows because she has that animal sound down. We watch this over, and over, and over and...... She loves it.
She's always loved Super Why. Since she was about 7-8 months old. We have these 3 DVDs and they are the must have for our car DVD player. We don't travel without our Super Why.
This machine has played white noise for every nap and every bedtime since she was born. She loves it and we dread the day that it quits working.
This is her current favorite book.
This is her favorite YouTube video and song. I used a program to "borrow" the song off of the video and it converted it to an mp3. We now have it on the ipod and she *loves* to hear it over and over and over.
At first I didn't like her convertible car seat. But now, I love it. It's the Britax Boulevard 70. She seems really comfy in it and it is super safe.
Along with the car seat, I must mention the DVD player that we have in our car. Yes, we were those parents that said that 'our child would never need a DVD player in the car' and well, we ate those words. This thing is a must have for anyone that has to do extensive traveling to see family. For us, it's 6 hours to one and 4 to the other. And let's not forget that her day care is a good 30-40 minutes from home. Yes, I'm making excuses.
Okay, so an iPod touch isn't a necessity but Kage really enjoys it. We downloaded Peekaboo Barn for her and she loves playing that. She also watches her favorite YouTube videos on it.
Kinley's friend, Aubrey, shared this video with her last year. She's loved it ever since. It's the quietest four minutes ever. And she now tries to mimic the sounds. Big hit!
I used to be a diaper snob and only buy Swaddlers, but I've found that the Target brand are just as good and half the price. I just wish they came in a 2/3 like the Pampers. She's not quite a 3 but the 2s are too short.
The girl loves her crocs. Won't go anywhere without them!
The "Easter Bunny" brought her this travel magna doodle. "Day Care lady" said that she loves it at her house, so why not?! We bought the travel size so that she can carry it around. She loves to doodle on this thing and has learned how to slide the erase bar to clear the screen. But what I love most about this toy, is that it has taught her how to hold a pencil properly. I know, big deal. But it's the teacher in me.
