At four months of age, here are a few of Isabelle's favorite things:
My Pal Violet
Oh yes, Isabelle loves her Violet. (Thanks, Everett, for loving your Scout and encouraging us to get our own Violet!) It's a stuffed dog (as you can see) that you can connect to your computer via USB cord and you can program it with your child's name and some of their favorite things. Then when Violet plays music or talks to you, it says your name and coincidentally, Violet's things are your favorite things too! Right now, Isabelle just loves the music and the lights. Once she's older, I'm sure she'll love to sing along and will be delighted to hear that Violet likes the same things as her. :)
In fact, Violet was SO popular, that......
Isabelle also LOVES her blankees. I think she really likes texture, likes to kind of hold and stroke things to comfort herself, so we've kind of splurged on the blankees.
How cute are those blankees? The first, the pink and green, is a teeny "lovey" sized blankee, made by Dara & Co. (found at daraandco.com). The middle one, pink and brown, was part of her amazing diaper cake. The last, blue floral, is a My Blankee blankee (found at myblankees.com). They're all super soft. The Dara and the My Blankee are both minky dots on one side, minky swirl on the other and a satin border.
Fisher Price my little lamb Cradle 'n Swing
Is it Isabelle that loves the swing....or is it mommy that loves the precious minutes of freedom it allows me? I think both! Isabelle really does love her swing. The motion soothes her, I think, and she'll intently watch the mobile and mirror above her head. It plays music or nature sounds, swing front-back and side-to-side, and reclines or sits up. Most parents consider a swing to be a must have, and I'd recommend this one specifically.
