Evie's and Amy's favorite things--Prime Day edition

Hi Evie fans!  I see some favorite things being featured on Amazon Prime Day (July 15-16), so I thought I'd share them. I'll keep adding as deals get released the next couple days!



EVIE's RECS:
Tegu Blocks: Evie got these when she was quite young, and as she ages, she appreciates the Tegu Blocks more and more.  They have a satisfying magnetic click, come in different shapes and sizes and colors, and they build fine motor skills!




Anything Peppa.  Enough said.


This isn't exactly on super sale, but we love it so much, that I wanted to share it anyway. Peppa's house has lights and sounds as well. You can turn off the sounds once you get annoyed (it took me about a week to get annoyed).



I just bought Connect 4 for Evie today because she has shown so much interest in this game after watching Blippi play it on Youtube.  If you want to be the most awesome house there is, you can buy the lawn version of Connect 4 and we will spend all day with you!
The regular version is on sale for $8.39!


Lawn version:


Evie loves her dot markers!  She's still not great at exerting enough pressure on the markers to make too much of a mark, but with dot markers, she's able to make more of a statement on paper.




20% off of these supportive toddler chairs!  They remind me of a Rifton chair without the saddle part.




Evie recommends all play kitchens!  If I had seen this, I might have gotten it instead of our IKEA kitchen! Only $47.70 right now!






AMY'S RECS:

 I bought these reusable snack bags for much more at Anthropologie.  I've been using my pink snack bag for a couple weeks now, and I really enjoy them.  They are dishwasher and microwave safe too! The Clear ones are still available last time I checked!




This home air purifier is $49.49 on sale!   I have two of these, and am tempted to get another just for the price.  It has made a difference in Evie waking up with a sniffly nose. During allergy season (which has been especially bad in Boston), this has been well worth it.



I wouldn't be me if I didn't post about the Instant Pot.  3 years later, I still make perfect corn on the cob on a 2- minute setting, and my chicken curry always turns out great.  I highly recommend this for busy moms! Usually $129.95, marked down to $69.99, and ringing up at only $55.59 right now!



A really great option for an extra TV you don't want to buy cable for. $14.99 on sale!



And the gadget we have in many rooms of the house--the Echo dot.  Evie loves to listen to music, and we love knowing the weather. You can even use it as an intercom.   Usually $50, then marked down to $24.99, now ringing up at only $20!



Happy shopping, everyone!

Then she came home and started busting out of the blankets, and woke herself up all the time. Her arms flailed and her legs kicked while she was sleeping, which of course woke her up. But then she got bigger and craftier, and I needed to fin

Going public: Down Syndrome Awareness Day and what it means to us.

Starting this blog was a big deal for me. It's hard to throw out there in conversation that my baby girl has Down Syndrome, because that extra chromosome makes people view her differently. But because it is Down Syndrome Awareness Day on 3/21, I'm going public. Do you know why it's on the 21st?  Because of the 21st chromosome having an extra copy! So far, Evie has just been our beautiful baby girl who is learning to smile and reach for things. But as she grows older, I want our extended circle of friends to know, so that they can treat her as a typical little girl who may be a little delayed in her development, but will want to be included just like other kids.  I want the other kids to play with her and to learn that little girls with disabilities like to have fun too. Our story about our diagnosis is here .   Now that we've met Evie and know what we're dealing with, it's not SO scary as it was before.  Still overwhelming sometimes , but I wouldn'

Why is Sophie the Giraffe so awesome?!

My husband and I had a discussion about why Sophie the Giraffe is so beloved and effective, yet so simple.  This rubber giraffe is $18-25, and Erick was just astounded that it is so expensive.  I told him that EVERYONE has this giraffe, and he asked why it was so special.  This post is dedicated to my dear husband. A rare photo without her oxygen cannula Evie LOVES Sophie.  So the question is why? 1. Who wouldn't love a toy with its own Wikipedia entry and Facebook page?  I knew Sophie was French, but had no idea she was so old.   2.  Why not a penguin, a duck, or an elephant?  It's the neck.  A giraffe has the perfectly sized neck for an infant to grab and practice motor skills.  Then why not an ostrich?  The neck is too skinny, and no ears for baby to suck on! (You can tell I am sleep deprived, because I am thinking of the ideal animal for a rubber toy.) 3. No batteries required.  Since Evie was born, our battery inventory has grown significantly.
