Mommy Style Monday: Must Have Toys

Happy Monday!
I survived my first week back to school last week and here I go starting a brand new one! Weekends always go by way too fast. Good thing coming weekend is a 3 day weekend and MY BIRTHDAY!

If you would like to join us in our Mommy Style Monday posts, please sign up here!

This weeks' inspiration is TOYS! These are some toys that Boston, my 8 month old, is currently LOVING!

Boston loves chewing on this toy. Each end is a different shape and texture and he loves it. He never lets go of it while he is teething either. 

Boston loves grabbing Braden's Xbox controller and playing with it. No, we didn't buy one just for him to play with. We let him play with an old one that doesn't work anymore. He loves it so much.

3. TV Remote
He loves the buttons! And again, we didn't buy one just for him to play with. We let him munch on an old one. It's funny that sometimes baby's favorite toys that we specifically buy for them to play with!

He loves chewing on these too! One day he will be old enough to build with them.

I was sent this in an Influenster box and Boston loves it! He mostly likes chewing on the tags, but he still loves it!

I actually found this at Hobby Lobby one time and HAD to get it. Boston loves shaking this and holding it between his feet. We also use it as maracas and sing some songs. He loves that too!

Boston has started outgrowing some of his toys and I read that stacking toys are really good around this age (8 months). So we bought him this wooden stacker.

8. Links
Boston has loved these ever since he was a newborn. Often times he will have one in each hand at the dinner table. It is so funny.

This is Boston's newest obsession. He loves rubber ducks! We have some in the bathtub and he always crawls in the bathroom looking for them. They are wet and gross so we only let him play with those when he is in the bath. One day he got so upset that we wouldn't let him play with it outside the tub so we had to make sure to have some that he can play with outside of the tub too. He will seriously crawl around the house holding a rubber duck in his hand the whole time.

10. Books
Boston LOVES books! And that make me (his teacher mom) so happy! We read him a book every night before bed time and he just stares at the pictures, and tries to eat the book. I love that he loves books. I know he doesn't understand them now but it is so good for them to learn to love reading at a young age.

I think it is so funny when babies play with things that aren't toys! One of Boston's favorites these days is the door stopper! We only have one in our house but he will crawl over to it and play with it. It is so funny.  Sometimes he will turn himself around and start kicking it with his feet.
Babies are the greatest!

Make sure to check out the other mommas! I love reading their blogs because some of them have kids that are older than Boston so I get to read their blogs and get good ideas for when Boston is older.

As many of you know, I just finished the Kayla Itsiness 12 week BBG and I wanted to reward myself with something. I decided that it was time to try out FabFitFun. I must say, I was not disappointed.
Use the code "AFFILIATE10" to get $10 off your order!

I love boxes like this because it gives me things that I wouldn't normally try!
What's in FabFitFun's Summer box?

Trina Turk Tote – Value $55
This tote is super cute and PERFECT for taking to the beach.
Summer & Rose Yoga Towel – Value $36
This yoga towel is so soft, I absolutely love it.
This moisturizer is so light weight and keeps my skin so soft!
I LOVE this stuff so much! I use it on my body and on my face. It isn't too rough on my skin, and it leaves it feeling soooo soft and smooth. Seriously, I love this stuff!
This spray leaves your hair feeling like you've just been to the beach! And it smells AMAZING!
I got this gloss in the color "Bohemian Glow". I love the color and it actually is super moisturizing for your lips as well.
Betches Ice Pop Molds – Value $19
I love making my own popsicles. I can make them healthy and not have to worry about the sugar intake. And these are perfect for making some breastmilk popsicles for Boston when he is teething! I'm so excited to try it out for that.
I have actually been on the lookout for some a new foundation. I like BB creams because they are lightweight and good for your skin. The color I was given was a little too dark but I loved the way it felt on my face. It didn't feel like I was wearing makeup and it lasted all day!

If you have been wanting to try out FabFitFun you definitely should! I will be getting another box for SURE! And don't forget to use the code "AFFILIATE10" to get $10 off your order!
