I am obsessed every time I massage Ila with it - I sneak a little on my arms and hands. I love the way it feels and smells. So I felt bad stealing her lotion and ordered my own.

After Paint Lab - I decided we needed an easel for our patio. It would be a fun activity - although I may want to paint more than Ila. As I searched out easel's I found them to be north of $40.00
Then I went to Ikea and got this one for $14.99 - I also bought a roll of paper for $4.99. It is awesome and we are going to try it tomorrow. It also has a chalkboard on one side and a dry erase board on another. Another find at Ikea -play kitchen accessories. And they are about 1/3 the Read more [...]
Today we went to Paint Lab on Main Street in Santa Monica. It was 10:30-12:00 but Ila and her buddy only lasted about 45 min. I would say she was a little too young. The kids around the age of 2 were having a blast.
Basically they give you aprons, paint and paper for $15 and you can paint as much as you want. Supposedly the paint washes out of your clothes (we haven't washed ours yet). We painted outside and they ran around, Ila was more into using her fingers than the brushes, But Read more [...]
When we had Ila we were obsessed with our swing. We bought D batteries in bulk, for fear it might run out of juice in the middle of the night. I am still not sure why they don't invent a swing that plugs in the wall. I think they are in cahoots with the battery companies. We tried to go green and get rechargeable batteries but those couldn't keep the swing going.
We used the Fisher Price Little Lamb Swing and it was a miracle. Ila would sit and sleep in it for hours. One day the Read more [...]

So I was really sick of having a high chair and so many crevices where food can get stuck. I decided Ila was old enough for a booster seat. This seat is easy to attach, has minimal crevices and can go with you. It also has three height levels and can be used at the table or with a tray - even a dish washable tray.

Guess what ... time to play arts and crafts ...
From What To Expect The First Year:
At around 15 months, your toddler will be able to hold a crayon, so give her a chunky-sized (nontoxic) one that's easy for her to grasp and a big sheet of paper, and let her scribble to her heart's content. Making her mark with crayons, markers, or finger paints will give her a sense of control and freedom as well as sharpen her fine-motor skills. Give her free rein (as long as it's not on your walls).
