Brooks’ Favorite Things: 4 Months Old

I can’t believe Brooks is 4.5 months old at this point & I haven’t shared with you his Favorite Things! I try to do the monthly updates & Favorites close together but this month has been flying by for me!

This list is starting to get more fun because Brooks is getting more and more active – its so fun to watch him grow and learn and be able to do so many different things as the days & weeks go by! Here is a little peek into what he’s really loving at the moment – Check them out & let me know what YOUR little one is currently into! Please share!


4 Month Favorites

1- These Chewbeads are all sorts of awesome. I love the look of the necklace itself and it’s made for Brooks to be able to chew on it – what’s not to love about that? Whenever I carry him or wear him I have these on and he loves them – I even wore them when we went to Disney! They come in 3 style options – the Jane {smaller balls} the Hudson {larger ovals} and the Perry {a combo of the two – what I got!} and they come in all sorts of great colors too, but I love the grey!

2- Our neighbor dropped off this piano gym & Brooks is obsessed. He loves kicking it & “making music” and I can’t wait for him to be able to sit up & play the keyboard with his hands. He loves anything & everything musical so we also use this during tummy time & its always a big hit!

3- If you are on the go a lot with your baby {like I am!} you need one of these travel high chairs in your life. It folds up flat when you aren’t using it & easily secures on to most tables. Brooks just started sitting on this at our table & its been great to take with us to the beach since he loves being upright now. He’ll sit in there & hang out playing with a toy or watching the world go by. Plus we can easily take it to a restaurant so he can join us at the table {once he gets a little older!}

4-This Feel & Learn book has been a big hit lately – He likes the crinkle noise it makes & he is getting really good a turning the pages. It’s easy to throw in the diaper bag & I can read it to him anywhere or he can just play with it on his own.

5- We just got the Winkel during our recent trip to Delaware & it hasn’t left Brooks’ side – he LOVES IT! It’s lightweight & easy for him to hold and he loves chewing on it. Apparently you can also put in the freezer to help with teething, which I haven’t done yet but totally will – I’m sure the cold toy is fun to munch on during these hot summer days too!

6- These baby nail clippers are a MUST HAVE for any new parent. We {Charles} had an incident when cutting Brooks’ nails that he cut too much & it bled. It was all sorts of awful & Brooks and I cried. After that my friend, Shannon got us these clippers & they are a lifesaver. I think its just about impossible to cut anything put baby’s nails – it’s so easy to use and I don’t even worry about cutting Brooks’ fingers. Seriously, go get these now!

7- Brooks LOVES this Sit-Me-Up Floor seat – a neighbor friend just dropped it off for us the other day since her baby recently grew out of it. B is totally into being more vertical instead of horizontal these days & sometimes he just wants to sit up and watch the world go by, but he still needs some help. This thing also folds flat which is great for traveling – we took it to the beach house easily last weekend. It has rings for toys to attach & that keeps B entertained while I make lunch or dinner!

8- This mattress topper has been a lifesaver for us this past month – I am currently borrowing it from my friend, Shannon & it’s totally made traveling with a 4 month old so much easier! It’s a firm, yet comfy, non-toxic foam core that fits into any pack n play – Brooks sleeps like a champ with this bad boy! 

9- We just returned the swing we had been using to Sabrina & she swapped that out for this Jumperoo! At our 4 month appointment our pediatrician suggested we get Brooks in one of these for a little bit each day – he LOVES it so much! He loves bouncing & listening to the music and “playing” with the toys. Another winner!


What is YOUR baby loving this month?

    I’m so glad I found your blog. I have 4 month old boy too. We have the Sit Me Up too, but haven’t used it at home much lately because we’ve been giving him some time in his new exersaucer. But we took it to the grandparents the other day and he was well entertained while we had lunch.
    His latest favorite is anything crinkly – bought him the Fuzzy Bee book and he loves that thing!
    I’m ordering those scissors right now because as of now I only file is nails and he’s scratching his sensitive skin way too much still.

    Yay! So glad I contributed to 2 faves! 🙂 that piano mat was one of David’s favorites, and his cousins favorite (and when David was 7m he decided to play it at his cousins house :)). That sit me up thing looks great!
