We can’t wait for the weather to warm up and use the heck out of this car! Hadley’s always been a big fan of our family walks and her stroller, but I know she’ll enjoy them even more while riding like a cool kid in her pink car. For parents, I love that it has a cup holder, sturdy handle for pushing, and is easy to fold up to bring to the park.
We’re decided that since she has two cars (lucky girl!), the Step2 is going to be her outside car and the Cozy Coup is going to stay inside (but because she’s the boss sometimes, this may change!). We love watching her climb in and out of this car over and over, pushing it around herself, opening and shutting the door a hundred times in a row, turning the key, pushing the horn, etc. She’s loved it from the second she saw it!
This toy is a favorite of not only my daughter’s but every kid who’s come in our home. She got it for her first birthday, and we couldn’t pull her away from it for days. She doesn’t ride on it that much, but she loves pushing a button that makes the light-up wheel go around, and she loves hiding toys in the lift-up seat component. Remember when she hid my cell phone in the Christmas tree? I checked this toy for my phone first thing! You can find this in store or online from Target.
I think every parent loves a toy that’s equal parts educational and fun for kids! This puzzle is unique because it has an audio component and says the letters out loud when a child correctly puts each letter in its spot. Super cute.
Hadley’s perfect day would consist of an hour of running long hallways and then plopping down in my lap to read books the rest of the day. She has a ton of books and can pull them out from her bookshelf on her own, but she pulls out these same four books pictured below over and over again. If they’re all sprawled out on the floor, we can 99% guarantee that she’ll sort through them and bring us one of these four.
As soon as we plop her cutie bootie in the tub every night she reaches for her letters. It’s been fun watching her learn how to put them all over the sides of her tub! I know these will be a bath time staple for a while!
Hi! I’m Erica, and I absolutely adore sharing my life on this website with you! I come here almost daily to blab about all of the things related to being a regular wife and mother in today’s ever-evolving society. I share about our new home, what’s on our kitchen table, what we’re hanging in our closets, where we’re traveling to next, my crazy 5 a.m. work outs, how I make time for girlfriends, our faith, and much more. We always have a lot of balls in the air and somewhat thrive on the chaos. I believe in the power of story-telling as a form of inspiration and entertainment, so I’m here to do both! I was born and raised in north Alabama and recently re-planted roots here again after my husband transitioned out of the Army (he is now in the Reserve and it’s going so well!) I’m a super proud mom to two little girls (ages 5 and 2) who seem to be the stars of the show around here (for good reason – they’re pretty great!) I’m so glad you found me and are here reading! I hope we can get to know each other here on the blog as well as Facebook and/or Instagram. xoxo
