I’m going to post about some awesome things I’ve found or have happened recently.
1. This Opa salad dressing. This stuff is so good. I’ve only had the feta dill flavor but it’s phenomenal. It has real pieces of feta in it and only 50 calories per 2 tbsps. I might have eaten some out of the container with a spoon.
2. The Halo Sleep Sack. This was actually a gift from Kristy (so nice of her and her family!) and it’s come in so handy.
Alexander sleeps a lot better when his arms are swaddled. Otherwise, he tends to startle himself and wakes up. This is a common baby thing. At first, we swaddled him with blankets. Jason is good at it. I am not. It goes from this…
to this in about 2.5 seconds…
The Halo Sleep Sack has velcro so it stays closed. Though little Houdini has managed to get his arms out on occasion. This particular swaddle has a wide bottom which is supposed to be better for baby’s hips. And speaking of hips…
3. No hip dysplasia.
That’s my poor baby getting a hip ultrasound. Because he was frank breech (in a pike position, basically) for like my entire pregnancy, they wanted to make sure his hips were in the sockets at the proper angles. If there was dysplasia, he would have had to wear a harness to correct it, but fortunately his hips were fine.
4. A Keurig for formula! I think most people reading this know that Jason is a producer at a local news station. Apparently, they tested out this Baby Brezza on the air and afterward, they gave it to Jason! So awesome. Disclaimer: we haven’t actually used it yet, but I love my Keurig so I’m sure I’ll love this too. The thing with formula feeding is sometimes Alex wants food NOW and it takes a minute to prepare the formula (though I keep some full bottles in the fridge) and then warm it up.
5. I won a bunch of Kind granola bars from Lauren. We won’t talk about the 1.5 cups of granola that I ate yesterday. At least I measured and counted it, right? Seriously, does anyone eat just one serving of granola?
