Top 5s Update

I don’t know why I’m still astonished at the sheer volume of gear required to keep a 9-month-old’s life well-oiled and smooth.  You’d think I’d learn, but I’m still surprised every time we leave the house for longer than half an hour and have to rent a U-Haul to accompany us. 
While the amount of gear hasn’t changed (unless it’s for the greater), the type of gear has.  So I checked in with my Top 5s Page and discovered it wasn’t up to speed on Maddie’s latest must-haves.  The bad news?  I had to sit down and actually do some work, narrowing down her heavy rotation gear to a short list.  The good news?  I’ve done it, and you can benefit.
That’s my long way of saying I’ve updated my Top 5s page, making sure links are current and adding new products or websites I’ve found and now depend heavily upon.  And just in case your child is not the exact same age as Maddie (what are the odds) I’ve left her earlier favorites in, as well.  So we all can shop happy!  Plus I’ve expanded the lists, including new categories like “Mommy Blogs”, “Moving To Solids”, “Downtime Reads” (is there such a thing???) and “Favorite Things”.  Check it out by clicking here or on the tab at the right of the page.
And, as always, if you’ve got any recommendations, I’d love to hear them.  Any excuse to go shopping – “Sorry honey, have to do research for the website . . . mommies counting on me . . .”
Thanks girls!
