Hi all! Remi turns 6 months on Saturday (what?!), so starting her on solids has been on my mind the last few weeks. We choose to skip cereals and just introduce her around 6 months. I had been looking for a few things to make feeding her easier, and I am here to share a few of my favorite things that I have found!
First is this E-Z Squee-z. I have loved this. It is a soft, squeezable silicon bottle that promotes self feeding and is easy for little hands to hold. I simply pour a small amount of pureed food in it and let Remi figure it out. We have used it a few times and it is cute to see her figure out bringing it to her mouth and chewing/sucking on it.
Hey all! If you follow me on Instagram (@robynmeacham), you know that I have been working with @rawberry_smoothies for a few weeks now. I was excited about this not just because I love smoothies, but because being pregnant has made me extra aware of the added nutrients I should be getting. Starting my day off with a smoothie packed full of healthy things ensures that I am doing something right.
Secondly, Saylor LOVES them…and normally isn’t the best eater. She is picky, and while she likes fruit, veggies are a whole other story. I love that I can sneak in kale or spinach, or even things like dates(what!?), into something she actually likes, likes helping me make, and it isn’t something I am forcing her to eat. Win!
Have you guys heard of Influenster? If you haven’t, you are seriously behind on the times! If you are anything like me, I love getting free samples and I love trying new things. What Influenster is is an online community made up of shoppers (you and I) that test out new products in exchange for honest and fair online reviews, and in return get to stay on top of the current trends! These products can be anything from beauty to food related, and everything in between. You take surveys to show what you are interested in, and the more active you are on social media, the better chance you have of getting good stuff!
I recently discovered Smarty Pants Vitamins and was so excited when they offered to send me some vitamins. I am always on the hunt for the best tasting ones (along side the nutritional value), not just for me, but for Saylor too. She is the pickiest little girl when it comes to chewy, gummy things, so when I tried these I KNEW instantly that these were something she would enjoy!
I received the 3 bottles pictured here. I tried a few of them and can honestly say they are the best tasting gummy vitamins I have had! They don’t have a weird aftertaste and they don’t have a weird consistency. Each bottle has different ingredients, carefully thought out and determined based off what each one of us needs. If you have any questions regarding Smarty Pants Vitamins, they can be found HERE.
As promised, I am here to share my all time favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe with you! This has came after years of picking and choosing what really does make up the best cookie (and with help of my mother in law). Every single thing that goes into a cookie can change the flavor and consistency, and these are my personal favorite things. I love lots of chocolate, salt, and slightly undercooked.
The first trick is SEA SALT. Sprinkle some right on top of the dough balls before you pop them in the over. LIFE CHANGING.
Hi guys! So if you know me, you know that I have perfected the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe (which I will share later), and I don’t stray from it. The other day my sis told me that she was given a new cookie recipe that I had to try, and that it might give my recipe a run for its money! Too good to be true?! You be the judge.
Saylor helped me whip up a quick batch yesterday…she likes being included in things and feeling like she is helping me. I love that about this age…even if it really just makes more of a mess, haha.
…between Swig and Sodalicious. That’s right, I’m here to let you know which is better. Well, maybe not better, but I’m going to break down the differences in drinks, cookies, price, and service!
Before moving to Utah, the closest thing we had in California to a “cutesy drive through personalized soda stand with cookies” was Sonic, ha. So you can understand my excitement. I love cookies! And I love Diet Coke with flavoring! Every basic mom’s dream! We moved just a few miles away from a Swig, with a Sodalicious not much further away. Because Swig was in my path of driving, that is where I would frequent. One day I had the brilliant idea to compare the 2 places. People up here seem fiercely loyal to either one or the other. I had to dissect the differences and figure out what differences, if any, there were. Aren’t you so happy I am doing this for you?
