Valentine’s Day had double meaning….not only did I get to celebrate with my little sweetheart, but we celebrated his half birthday. Happy 18 Months, Pumpkin!
Planes, trains and automobiles seem to be a large part of my family’s life over the last two years. For this reason, the Graco Pack ‘n Play On the Go is a must-have item. My son loves travelling to see his family and friends…but it’s sometimes tough to adjust to a new environment. Taking the Pack ‘n Play with us ensures that when his exhausted little body touches the mattress, it is familiar to him as and he knows he is in his “home away from home”.
Being a full-time working mom, night time with my husband and Pumpkin is very important. The dinner table is where we sit together, relax and just enjoy being a family. My son sits between us in his Contempo High Chair, taking center stage and happily chattering away. Most of it is still not clear, but I think I hear a new word pop out of his mouth almost every night! What is great about the highchair is the dual tray. When dinner is over, I can just take the top tray off and throw it in the dishwasher. I don’t have to worry about cleaning and can take advantage of the time with my son and husband.
Working on car seats, I would be remiss not to say how much I love my Smart Seat All-in-One car seat. This is truly an innovative product that helps keep Pumpkin safe and comfortable during our car rides. We are new to the Georgia area, so there is a lot to explore on the weekends! What is great is it has a no re-thread harness with adjustable head rest so I can easily adjust it (without taking the seat apart to move the harnesses around) as my son grows – and that he has!! Graco also sells the base separately, so you can just buy one seat and then bases for your additional car needs. One seat that is easily transportable between multiple cars – LOVE IT.

I am super excited for Valentine’s Week (well, my husband isn’t, but my kids and me are…) So I want to send a special Valentine’s Week wish to my adorable little girls who make me smile, laugh and be silly on a daily basis. Happy Valentine’s Week!
The Graco Items that I love for a toddler are the Nautilus 3-in-1 car seat, the MyRide 65 convertible car seat and (obviously a popular choice since it’s the second time this is popping up) the Sweet Slumber Sound Machine (we use it at home and when we travel, too!)
The Graco Nautilus 3-in-1 car seat is one of our most popular toddler car seats. I can proudly say that I have used Nautilus car seats for both of my children since the day we launched the car seat into the market (My daughter was one of the first users!). Four years later, my second daughter, now proudly rides in her stylish pink Nautilus in my car. And, in my husband’s car, she sits in her My Ride 65 convertible car seat (since her older sister is still riding in her Nautilus). What can I say, I am a BIG FAN of Graco car seats!
Thank you to Katie & Melissa for sharing their favorite products for toddlers with us. Happy Valentine’s Week to you girls & your families! Are any of these same items on your own “Love List?” If not, what makes your cut? Leave us a comment with your list and you’ll be entered to win a Pack ‘n Play with Cuddle Cove Rocking Seat tomorrow.
