Leo is almost 4 months old now and he is starting to murr murr, make noises, smile and even giggle. I am absolutely LOVING watching him grow up, develop and being the one that gets to teach him new things. I can’t believe I’m even saying this but … you guys might be right … I am FINALLY starting to realize that I can’t have everything WHITE for Leo. I started off so strong and gung-ho to have everything neutral toned, organized and perfect looking … but the more I have watched him grow, the more I realize he needs COLOUR in his life. I don’t mean coloured walls (although some of you might disagree with this lol) … but I mean more so in his toys and decor. I have become obsessed with his development and teaching him things which is where all of this thought of colour has come from.
He absolutely LOVES standing up when we hold him … so much so that when we were still in Maui I ordered him a jolly jumper from Snuggle Bugz so that it would arrive in time for when we got back. I have also been stocking up on colourful books with pop outs, and recently got him an activity gym AND an activity centre!! I can’t believe how many cool things are out their to support babies growth and development. I am learning SO much and hope to share some if it with you along the way.
Ontop of all of that, having all of the toys and baby gear around the house doesn’t bug me one bit like I thought it would!!
We still love having our baths together … there are so many cool toys that he can start playing with and hold like the Oball!!! We also just got him an Aqua Splash Bath Mat which is basically a Bumbo for the bath. It allows Leo to play freely and keeps him upright … he needs to have a LITTLE bit more body control before he can start using it but it shouldn’t be too much longer now. I can’t believe this but I also ordered the base for the Stokke Bouncer AND his very first Bumbo Seat. Believe it or not, it’s almost time to get him started on some solids. I will save all of that for another blog though!!!
For now … at this 4-month stage, I am rounding up some of the top items that I have found and will be trying from Snuggle Bugz. If you know any 4-month-old babes out there … ANY of these items would also make for great Christmas presents. Consider getting them something colourful to help with their development. There is so much to choose from and so much out there, check out the Snuggle Bugz Flyer for some ideas … or follow along below for my top picks …
I can’t wait to watch him grow and teach him everything along the way … this whole parenting thing is pretty freakin cool!!!
