Parenting with Bear

Seriously, what is the deal with this Sophie?

I know I am a bit behind on the baby updates because I just had my first little one a couple of months ago, but seriously what is the deal with this Sophie the Giraffe. I received this 7” H toy as a gift and Bear has loved her ever since he was able to grab something. Every morning and throughout the day, he loves to touch it and put it in his mouth every way or direction he can possibly do. He is so entertained by this expensive toy (I personally feel it is quite pricy for my budget). I have read the reviews and it seems that everyone loves it and gives it a 5 star rating. I am grateful for my lovely friend who gave Sophie to us and it has been an essential daily toy for Bear.  Do you have Sophie and has your peanut enjoyed her?



Dearest Baby Bear,


Play Time

6 months

You are now 6 months old! I can’t believe my little sweet monkey is growing up so fast.

What an incredible journey it has been. Who would have guessed I would be a mother. It is the most amazing feeling ever. Every day with you is magical and full of surprises.

Every milestone you reach has been a blessing. You have accomplished and advanced each month’s goals. Mommy has used the babycenter’s milestone chart to check your every move. Go Bear go!

At this time, you have discovered your feet and toes. You love to play with them and leave drool all over them. What joy it is to share in these moments with you.

Mommy Picks

The Bumbo. I use this baby seat every day! When Bear reached 3 months of age, I started using it. It allowed him to sit up early in the infant stage and he continues to enjoy sitting in it. It permits him to be with me everywhere around the house. When I am cooking in the kitchen or getting ready in the morning, I simply place the Bumbo on an even surface with supervision of course. This seat has helped me out tremendously when I need to complete quick tasks. Without this seat, I know my days would be longer and my list of mommy “to dos” would be endless. Many of my mommy friends also enjoy this Bumbo and in fact, they gave it to me as a baby gift.

However, I have heard of warnings on this product and I feel that people may have used this product incorrectly. As for me, I have not had any issues. I do not put him in it for long periods of time and he is always supervised when sitting in it. I wish they would make these seats for adults.
