Being Brickner : Seven & Eight Month Favorites

Seven & Eight Month Favorites

Months 7 & 8 have been a whole new world for us around here.  Waverly Maye has grown into a mobile, interactive little lady and her needs have definitely changed.  This means new products & baby gear (which honestly, is always fine with me because it means a real need for me to venture to Target.)  
Here are our current favorites - the products we really couldn't live without and are SO glad we have.  Other suggestions are welcome and always appreciated! 
Did we mention we LOVE baby products and pretty much anything baby?!

1 - Happy Baby Organic Puffs; I am not sure I remember life before Puffs.  We probably have five different flavors sitting in our cabinet right now (although our favorite is sweet potato.)  Waverly loves them, which means I love them.  They are great to keep her occupied while I am finishing her food or to sit on the table at a restaurant.  We never leave home without them!  
2 - Ergo Baby Carrier; When I was pregnant, I knew that I wanted a good baby carrier so this was one of the items that I researched the most.  (I have a weird obsession with reading reviews - not sure if I'm the only one?).  All of the reviews of the Ergo were the best, so we went with it.  Waverly has been in the carrier since she was born, but most recently has been back in it often.  Although she loves to crawl and explore, she is not a fan of being farther than 5 feet from me at a time.  So the Ergo enables me to clean, do laundry, or put the dishes away while holding her close.
3 - Onesies; Although not the most exciting of fashion finds, the colored onesies at H&M have become such a favorite.  They are comfy, wash well, and come in SO many colors ... and are perfect to pair with all of Waverly's printed skirts, pants, headbands and hats.  Best of all?  They are super cheap - 3 for &12.00.
4 - Tommy Tippee Bib;  These are our go-to bibs, for sure.  I quicky learned that the beautiful, printed bibs we were gifted were simply not going to cut it.  Within seconds of eating, Waverly managed to dirty those bad boys right up.  These are great because they are easy to clean and the section at the bottom catches all of those Puffs!
5; Munchkin Bath Toys; Bath time is one of the highlights of our day.  Our little fish loves everything about the water, and bath toys only add to the fun.  We love the letters because there are a ton of them for not that much money, and just like everything else, she can put them in her mouth.
6;  Lollaland Sippy Cup; My mom recently gave us this sippy cup after seeing it on "The View."  We love it, primarily because the top closes so I can pack it in the diaper bag with no leakage.  A mom recently made tons of money coming up with this idea - um, why didn't anyone think of this sooner?!  So perfect.

As always, I have to include a picture of my sweetie.  Clearly, all of these favorites are working because she is one happy baby.  I would buy ten more baby products to get that heart-melting smile.  (Obviously!
