vivi’s favorite things

baby barrette giveaway

First, I have a giveaway!  Lulu of Lulu’s Nest on Etsy was kind enough to send Vivi two adorable felt hair clips.  They are so perfect right now, as Vivi has just discovered how to remove bows from her hair (not all the time – mostly if she gets bored, tired, or riding in the car), but she really needs them or else her hair is all over the place and in her eyes!  I can put these right on top of her head and their secure grip and the placement makes them a challenge for her to pull out, which makes me very happy.  I just bought the cupcake and bow versions as well because they are just so darling!  If you are interested in the giveaway for two clips, leave a comment and the winner will be drawn at random next Tuesday, the 13th!

Vivi's favorite things 9 month baby

Above are a few of Vivi’s favorite things.  She is really enjoying books now, which is really fun!  I have been reading to her since she was born, but now she seems to really enjoy sitting and looking at the pages and watching me read them.  She also loves to turn the pages.  The Hugs links pictured above are also a lot of fun (and the awesome canister they come in are also just as much fun as the toys)!  Vivi loves to chew on them, toss them, pile them up – B.Toys was kind enough to send us a set after I featured the Zany Zoo(which we still love!) and these are a hit, too.  Those stack and roll cups are also really awesome.  I purchased those at Target when I went to get her some new toys, and being overwhelmed by all the plastic and flashing lights, these caught my eye because they were so simple.  Vivi loves clanging them together, stacking them, putting things in them, and the ball keeps her attention for a really long time.  She rolls it across the floor and then crawls after it.  Lastly, (and this one is my personal favorite!) is Bear.  He is the cutest little thing ever.  We received him as a gift, but he has become Vivi’s snuggle buddy.  Since he is so small, I don’t worry about her sleeping with him, and he has acquired that sweet loved-in look like a Velveteen rabbit because she nuzzles him with her face when she gets sleepy.  I’ll never be able to part with this little fella, as he will always be a picture of sweet baby snuggles with Vivi!

(**Lastly, for those of you who asked, I included a link to some Magnum bows!  I purchased Vivi’s at a store in Albany, so they aren’t online, but these appeared to be similar – hers is on an alligator clip.)

    One of the huge upsides of having a baby girl it hair accessories! Even though I have a little boy, I always find myself wandering in the baby girl section looking for gifts!

  32. Those stacking cups are the best right?  they can do so many different things – much better than the old ring version in my opinion.  and love those clips – just the right size!

      Thanks, Jennifer!  I made it.  You can buy one here, if you are interested:  I sell them at the 18″ x 24″ size there, but I can make a 24″ x 36″ size (which is the size of Vivi’s) if you want a larger one.
