A Few of My New Favorite Things

I just wanted to share a few of the new things I've discovered that I wouldn't want to live without. Some of them are not really new, but I have just discovered their brilliance and value. You may want to try out some of them, if you haven't.

1. The Sling- this thing is great, and the only way I get anything done some days.

How comfy does he look?

2. The Swaddler- This is great for sleeping newborns. No more swaddling with blankets that are just kicked loose in a matter of minutes.

Don't be fooled by the sour-face. He really does love it. He was just ready for a bed-time snack.

3. The GPS/Navigation System- Brent got one of these for Christmas from both of our parents. I am so glad he did, because now I have one too. I cannot tell you how much time and gas this thing has saved me.

4. The Automatic Programmable Coffee Pot- I realize this is not new technology, but I've never had one and really thought it was unnecessary. However, my new pot has it and I love waking up to the aroma of brewing coffee. And it's not like preparing coffee is a time consuming task, but it is one less thing to do in the morning.

Do you have any new favorite things?

You know, I had been thinking of doing a post a lot like this for awhile, but thought that folks wouldn't be interested. I was more than interested in your new favorite things & share a few of them myself. Thanks! I really enjoyed it!

BTW navigation is totally necessary when you live in a big place that you don't know all that well. I'm glad you won't be getting lost out there in TN!

The programmable coffee pot tops my list!

And you look great!

I didn't know you were a coffee drinker, guess you really are a grown-up :) Maybe I'm not because I never developed the taste for coffee, but I do love the smell!

Hi Hilary! I love your favorite things post! I loved my baby sling too. I actually have the "sleepy wrap"...looks different, but serves the same purpose! Your kiddos are adorable!!

Thanks for the advice! I will have to register for the sling and the wrap thing.

I think the GPS is the neatest thing since sliced bread! When you were a baby I had a thing for my back that I put you in sometimes. I would carry you around the house as I ran the sweeper! I think the sling would have been much easier to use.
