Hello blog friends! 😀
It has been far too long. I honestly can’t believe I haven’t posted since January 18th. Time flies with a toddler.
Today I’ll be sharing with you some 19 month updates on Samantha as well as some new favorite toys and products.
I recently decided to try out the Honest Company products. I’ve been doing a lot of Swagbucks deals – now I won’t go into detail but basically you get something called “Swagbucks” or SB and you can redeem them for giftcards.
I’ve received Starbucks and Walmart giftcards just by filling out surveys or signing up for free trials (of course, be sure to cancel them). If you want more info on Swagbucks, check out their site or leave a comment!
Back to Honest Company; there was a Swagbucks deal that if you signed up for the free trial, you’d get some “SB.” I decided to give a go because I have been wanting to try them out. I opted for the household products trial.Out of the five products, my favorites were the healing balm and the lotion. Samantha’s eczema has been acting up and this balm took care of it like a charm (not to mention some severe dry skin that I had on my nose).The shampoo/ wash smelled pretty good and the soap was great. I did also like the multi-surface spray cleaner, but I normally just get the Seventh Generation one.
I decided to extend my trial and do one month and once I try out those products, you’ll be seeing another review post, so stay tuned later this month. 😉
Samantha is a whole 19 months as of March 6th. I cannot believe she is almost two. She loves “singing” her ABC’s, the Itsy Bitsy Spider and Ring Around the Rosy. Her favorite shows are Mother Goose Club and Ruff Ruff, Tweet & Dave!
We’ve been getting Samantha on weekly activities to get out of the house and socialize. Wednesdays or Thursdays we have Library dates. Sometimes they have story-time and sometimes they have a bunch of fun toys for them to play with. Fridays she has “Playschool.”
She’s been very into this button art by Alex toys set we got for Christmas from my mom. It comes with different images and it’s great for those motor skills and learning colors!
I recently put this Crayola art studio together for her the other day since she likes sitting at the table in the library. She’ll color for a few minutes or play with stickers; she loves stickers!I will say, eating has been tough! She goes through her phases but at least still eats a decent variety.Current food likes:
- All fruit
- Sweet Potato Pancakes
- Happy Baby Spinach, Kale & Apple Pouch
- Snap Pea Crisps
- Peanut Butter
- Plum Organic Mac & Cheese
- Raisins/ Cranberries
We still aren’t into veggies, although she will eat some at playschool. She isn’t a fan of meat either. She was all for it before then fell off of it at around 11 months. I’m not too concerned because she eats plenty of foods with iron plus she takes a multi-vitamin (as per her doctor).
That wraps up what’s currently going on in our toddler’s world. It’s just amazing to watch her grow and learn each day!
Question: How’s your 2017 going so far? What are some of your toddler’s favorite activities and/or toys?
