Favorite Baby Items - 9 Months

I like to do these posts every once in awhile - I know they help other moms out there who have no clue what "gear" they need for their baby, and I like writing it down so I'll remember for next time! :) 

Here are our most-used baby items for the past few months.

Evenflo ExerSaucer Triple Fun - Jungle

Evenflo Exersaucer

This has been a LIFE SAVER since Emma Ramey started crawling.  If I need her to stay put for a minute or two, this is my go-to.  She has loved it too!  Now that she's standing (and almost walking!), she gets a little more frustrated being in it, so I think our time with it might be coming to a close.  But it has been so helpful up until now.
Fisher-Price Space Saver High Chair - Tan Circles
Fisher Price Space Saver High Chair

If I can ever cut down on the amount of "gear" we have to keep out, I do this is perfect for us!  It's a high chair that sits in one of your regular kitchen chairs.  It does the job and doesn't take up nearly as much space!
Munchkin Powdered Formula Dispenser
Munchkin Formula Dispenser
We went to all-formula a few weeks ago.  I didn't get one of these when I was pregnant because I just knew we would never use formula (hahahahahaha...never say never :)), but it is so convenient, especially when you're out.  You just measure the formula for each bottle into the compartments, and dump it in the bottle when you need it - mess free and so easy!
The First Years Sounds For Silence Nursery Sound Machine 
 First Years Sound Machine
There are lots of sound machines out there, but this one has been's not too expensive and it does the trick.  I keep saying I'm going to wean Emma Ramey off of her sound machine, but I haven't yet. She's slept with it since she was 2 weeks old, and if that's her biggest vice, I'm ok with that. :)
HALO SleepSack Wearable Blanket - Pink, Micro-Fleece 
 Halo Sleepsacks
This is become a total security blanket for Emma Ramey - she's never really taken to "lovies" or regular blankets, but she will absolutely not sleep if she's not wearing this.  They are safe to use and, especially during the winter, make sure she's not cold when she sleeps!
Fisher-Price Brilliant Basics Baby's First Blocks
Fisher Price Brilliant Basics - Baby's First Blocks
Of all of the toys Emma Ramey got for Christmas, this is her favorite.  We joke that out of all of the fancy, loud, animated toys she got, this is what she took to - of course! 
Graco 4 Gallon Cool Mist Humidifier 
Graco Cool Mist Humidifier
 We've had this since long before Emma Ramey was born, but just haven't needed it because she's been so healthy.  She had a cold a couple of weeks ago, and we put it in there - cleared it right up!  And, her eye that's been giving us so much trouble?  Hasn't been nasty at all since we started using this!  I'm hoping and praying it stays that way.
Munchkin Inflatable Safety Tub
Munchkin Inflatable Seal Tub
Emma Ramey is not big on sitting in just the regular tub for some reason - every time we've tried it, she has freaked.  But she loves taking a bath in this!  It has a temperature sensor at the bottom to make sure the water isn't too warm too that we like.
Baby Bullet
I've heard mixed reviews on whether or not people like it, but I've loved it!  Yes, most everything you do with a Baby Bullet can be done with other items in the kitchen, but it's nice to have it all in 1 set.  I love the little serving trays that come with it too!
