We got these booster seats/highchairs for the girls and we just love them. The tray comes with a removable play insert. This keeps the girls occupied while I prepare their food and then again after they eat, as we clean up. It's lightweight, easy to clean and very portable. They fit on most chairs very well. The only disclaimer I have is to be careful when washing the play insert. It has stickers on it and I made the mistake of getting it to wet and the stickers came off.

My husband got me one of these bracelets for my birthday last month. I LOVE it. It's comfortable, modern and subtle. Mine has my twin girls initials. You can wear it around the clock and even in the shower. My husband found the site very easy to use and the customer service was great. I highly recommend them!

I knew nothing about Robeez when my daughters were born. We received them as a gift, and they are now one of the best gifts we received! They are genuine leather and while the price is high for a pair of baby shoes (retails for about $40), they are well worth it. They are easy to get on and off because of the elastic backing. They are soft and pliable and come in a great variety of adorable styles and colors for baby boys and baby girls. I know that the Gap now sells them in their stores, but you can also find them on the robeez web site. They currently have a promotion to buy 2 pairs and get free shipping.
These shoes are highly recommended by pediatricians because of their very soft soles. Ideally, pediatricians would love babies to go barefoot all the time until they are walking, but we know that's not always practical or as fun! These shoes are just like being barefoot.
EDIT: Nordstrom's now has free shipping and most Robeez are $27.95!

I'm sickened by the ingredients that are added to our baby's products. There are so many parts of being a parent that are out of my control, that I must do what I can do keep my girls safe. You can read more about how most baby products out on the market now are unsafe, just by googling "safe baby wash". You can also see how your current product scores on the safety list at the Skin Deep website.
I was on a quest for a reasonably priced "safer" product line as well as one that I could buy at a brick and mortar instead of paying shipping fees. I came across the California Baby line, that you can find at your local Whole Foods Market. I purchased the lavendar scent which has a safety number of "2". The sensitive skin formula is rated even better at "1". The large pump was about $20, and should last me a very long time. The tiniest bit goes very far. The essential oils have a wonderful spa-like smell that isn't too overpowering. I am really happy with the shampoo, lotion and SPF.

I've been on a quest for a "safe" coffee table for our living room for when the girls become mobile. Our living room is modern and I try to stay clutter-free. This ottoman at Target, is leather padded and just the right height for our 5 month olds to hold on to when standing. It is also serves as extra seating for visitors and extra storage for baby items we like to keep in our living room. It's a little small, so we purchased two and set them side by side. They are currently on sale at Target for $60 and also available in brown.
