Our Pick: Crayons

One of S's favorite things to do is draw, and we've tried a bunch of different kinds of colors (crayons, pencils, markers). Our favorite, by far, are the Sakura Coupy pencils! They're called pencils, but they're really more like crayons that color as detailed as colored pencils. They're not lumpy like most crayons are (although Crayola crayons do a pretty good job too). The colors go on smooth and are long like pencils so it's easier to hold.

Our Pick: Legging Pants

I am not one to wear skinny jeans. I tried. The thick jean fabric literally plasters itself to your whole leg and behind. I can't stand it. I think it looks awesome on those who can wear it. They're fashionable and go with everything. But I am all about comfort, and I think that comfort and fashion can come together harmoniously. So taking it back to this past Tuesday, when my hubby came back from his business trip in Japan and brought back a pair of legging pants that are really popular in Japan (per my sister-in-law).

Our Pick: Infant Pillow

I know that infants don't need pillows, and there's a big debate about what sleeping positions are safe for baby and what products are safe to put in a crib. I'm sure there's good reason for that, but I believe parents and care takers also make their judgment calls and do what they think is best for their children. Different cultures also have different points of views, so for example, a lot of people believe that babies are better off sleeping on their tummies while here in the US, sleeping face up is strongly encouraged.

A bigger Zoli!

Ok, so you may not understand why this is so exciting, but it is for us! Or for me at least. I blogged about our pick for sippy cup a while ago and while we loved our Zoli cup, we have stopped using it as of last year. The only reason is that we simply outgrew it. It held 6 oz of fluid, and our little guy drinks more milk than that in one sitting. So I started looking for a bigger sippy cup.

Our Pick: Diapers

Like everything else, before having a baby, I had no idea what diaper brand to use. I didn't know what diaper size to buy, so we ended up not buying any diapers. Lucky for us, the hospital gave us some to take home (including samples from various brands), and that started us on our Pampers path. For me, imagining having a diaper on all day long just feels uncomfortable, so the most important thing for us was comfort. Pampers = softness + flexibility, which is why we picked it.

Our Pick: Toddler Scooter

The Mini Kick scooter rocks! It rocks so much S's dad wants to ride it all the time in spite of the weight limitation *rolls eyes* - what can I tell ya, we have two "boys" in the house. It's very easy to navigate, there are two front wheels and one back wheels with springs that make it safe for a toddler, and it comes in variation of colors. S is a pro on his scooter now and has been for a long time. He zooms around inside and outside the house dodging obstacles and making turns.

Our Pick: Potty

Now that the little guy is potty trained, potty's have become a very important part of our lives. We started out with the frog potty by Fisher Price (above), but since we live in a town house, we decided that having more than one potty in the house would be more convenient. This way when he tells us "I have to peepee!" we don't have to run up and down the stairs as fast as we can, carrying a pantless toddler.

Our Pick: 2-Year Old Favorite Movies

S's first love was definitely Elmo (who he called "wawa"), and since then he's fallen in love with Anpanman (Japanese cartoon about a bread hero), The Lion King (mainly with the songs and the scene where Timone and Pumba teach Simba to eat worms "slimy but satisfying") and
