My Favorite things

I have done this before and figured it was time for another one. Plus we are housesitting/babysitting and I don't have a way to download current pictures so this will have to work as a blog post. 


I am making my own baby food for the twins. They currently are horrible eaters, I hope it is not my cooking. ;) I use my blender all the time and just freeze everything.  A must have in babyfood making. 
Huggies Cucumber green tea wipes

 We change a alot of diapers in the Tarrant household and it is really nice to have something that smells good. I love this smell and plus it is the kind you buy at Sam's. I never cared about buying stuff in bulk before now! 

Gumdrop Pacifiers 
We have a lot of these. I don't always knows where they end up so we go through a lot. At first we color coded the girls. Madelyn had the purple ones and Kinley had pink ones but that is a thing of the past. Now that the girls are older it is whatever. Kinley is known for grabbing her sister's out of her month if they are close enough. I thought we would stop doing pacifiers at six months but not now. This week we actually started using them while we feed the girls. They hate everything about eating babyfood, so I give them a bite and put the pacifier in their mouth and it helps them suck it down. Baby steps! It is totally not making feeding time great but at least helping a little. 

Double stroller, we use this with the carseats now and it is wonderful. I get to go places by myself easier.  It does sometimes attract lots of attention. Mostly people telling me about their grandchildren, children, nieces, nephews that are twins. I don't mind it at all... most of the time. 

Camera, having a husband who does video and photography we have lots of pictures being taken. Not that I have any pictures on my wall to prove it...hint hint Chris! 
Oh my goodness the twins love this toy. It usually makes them happy after crying. It makes really cute noises. I am seriously considering buying a 2nd one. 
Bumbo seats. We have started using this everyday with trying to eat food. The girls usually like them. They are still too small for their big high chairs and these are just perfect for eating and so easy to clean.
Paper towels, I didn't ever go through as many of these before babies. Something else we buy in bulk. 
Bibs and burp cloths. They both of saved lots of mine and their clothes. Kinley and Madelyn spit up a lot and so these are a must have at our house. 
Those are just a few things that make life easier. I am really going to try to be a better blogger.

I'd love to hear more about your experience making baby food. I've heard that the kids from the orphanage where M currently lives don't always take to jarred baby food because their food at the orphanage is made from the regular food. (I think it's mainly the different consistency that makes jarred food unappealing.) So I'm planning on making M's food when we pick her up.

Oh, that butterfly toy, was our favorite too, and yes we did have 2 of them.

We love the butterfly toy as well. Emmy liked it when she was younger, but Sam's not quite big enough to enjoy it yet. The bumbo is great also...I can't wait to do our exchange so my poor son doesn't have to eat in a purple one! :)

Glad to see a new post! Can't wait so see some new pics of the girls! Kudos for making your own baby food... I can't imagine finding the time :) I'm thinking we might need a couple of those butterfly toys! My girls can pop of their bumbos, so we're not using them much anymore.
