New Loves

Being a mom opens you up to alot of new products. Some are duds, and some are great! So I have decided to start a LOVES list. A periodic review of things (baby things or otherwise) that I love! So, here goes!
1. Lots of Links: The simple plastic links that babies play with. No sounds, batteries or on/off buttons. Just colorful, textured rings. Good for hours (well... more like minutes) of fun with baby :) They can also be good to chew on once baby starts teething.

2. Boppy Infant Lounger: When you think Boppy, you think of nursing aide. But my sister-in-law Landey bought me a Bopppy Lounger and we love it! It's comfortable for baby to lounge in, and not very easy for him to roll out of. It's not recommended to let baby sleep in it, but Luke has taken many naps in it and loves it because it's cozy. Just keep an eye on the baby while in the Boppy. (the cute baby is not Luke; Luke's cuter :)
3. Easy Cake Recipe: You must try it to believe it. I was skeptical at first, but I can't get enough! You must like pineapple and angel food cake... but even if you don't, this combo is incredible! My friend Joann at work turned me on to this. It's a 2 ingredient cake recipe; originally a Weight Watchers' recipe. Easy, Low fat, Super-moist, and delicious! What's not to love?! Made some yesterday and can't stop myself from eating it all day today (so moist, does not need the whipped topping!)

4. Kiwi Berries: yeah, who knew?!! never heard of them until my co-worker Malia brought some in from Sam's Club. Size of a grape, but looks like a kiwi inside and tastes like a sweeter version of a kiwi. No hair either, just pop the whole thing in your mouth! Delicious!

5. Texas Autumn: Wish I could bottle it up and sell it, but it would be priceless. Crisp morning and nights, and warm daytimes... like it , love it, can't get enough of it!!
