4. Melissa & Doug's bug jug
 This was a gift and she absolutely adores these little bugs! There soft, they jingle, crinkle,and rattle. She sits in her highchair every morning and plays with these. The jug is soft and really cute too.

6. Fisher Price Learning Kitchen
She sits in her bumbo chair next to this kitchen and seems to love playing with it and enjoys the sounds it makes! I think we will get a few months out of this toy because once she is able to sit up she can open it up and there are more ways to play with it.

We had a really great weekend, the weather was beautiful! We celebrated our St. Patty's Day with a traditional Irish dinner outside on our patio and sipped Bailey's martinis!
Of course we had to snap a picture of this little Irish girl on her first Saint Patrick's Day!

Having a baby will change your life on so many levels. Little tasks can turn into a huge ordeal, having a little me time can really recharge you, and you will be amazed at what you can accomplish in one hour without your little jelly bean in tow. Here are a few time savers that really saved me in those early months with a newborn!

1. Safeway delivery
Having your groceries delivered right to your door is life changing! You login online view your purchase history and start shopping it's that easy! Your first time is FREE and then they send you delivery coupons all the time, I think I paid once and it was WELL worth the $6. Shop here

2. Amazon Subscribe and Save
First of all you never want to run out of diapers, secondly they are bulky, thirdly with car seats and diaper bags having one less thing to load and unload out of your car is always a plus. I signed up to have her diapers delivered it's simple, easy to make changes when she out grows a size, and you save 10% every time! www.amazon.com
3. Buying in bulk
We love Costco's baby wipes and it's great because they come individually packaged and we can stock up!
