Sesame Street Biodegradable Table Toppers Are My Newest Must-Have

These disposable place mats are awesome!  The sides are sticky, so it adheres right to the table.  I put his food down directly on it, and he feeds himself while DH and I enjoy our dinner.  I don't have to worry about germs on the table, him smearing his food all over the place, or him throwing a plate to the floor.  He doesn't watch TV yet, so he has no idea who the Sesame characters are, but he still points to them and enjoys the pictures.  When we're done, I fold the mess up inside, and we're off.  It takes up no room in the diaper bag, so it's a total no brainer!  If only it kept him from throwing food on the floor...

You can get them here!

Beautiful Music! Beautiful Creatures!

We've been listening to this CD in my house for the last couple of weeks, and we're hooked!  Not only is the music catchy and rhythmic for JD, but it's also entertaining and educational for mom and dad too. (Who knew a warthog was an omnivore?  Who knew what an omnivore was?)  I even caught DH singing "Imvubu the Happiest Hippo", one of our favorite tracks, in the shower yesterday!  JD's favorite is "Lucas the Lazy Lion" mostly because it encourages him to roar and growl repeatedly.  I would totally listen to "The Night Song" while relaxing at night- even if I didn't have a baby.  It's amazingly calming.

"Beautiful Creatures was formed in South Africa in November 2004 by Alan Glass, Ed Jordan and Paul Choritz who felt there was a need for "Parent Friendly" children's music. Using the best session musicians, actors and singers in the country, Beautiful Creatures prides itself on being uniquely South African with a positive global message."
