• Five Favorites: Board Books For Babies

    Five Favorite Board Books For Babies | Oh Lovely Day

    I’ve gotten a lot of requests for this one, so this Friday’s Five Faves are Calvin’s favorite board books. These are actually the ones he seems to respond to, reach for, and laugh at the most, not necessarily my favorites to read (although I do love them as well). Some of them were Charlie’s favorite at this age too, so I’m thinking your babes would also love them. Happy reading!

    Five Favorite Board Books For Babies | Oh Lovely Day

    1. Hello, Bugs: This one is very visual with lots of graphic black and white patterns for baby’s vision. There’s an animal version too.

    2. Brown Bear, Brown Bear: I don’t know what it is, but both of my boys freaking love this book as babies.

    3. Peek-A Who: This one is fun, and interactive. Calvin loves the mirror at the end of the book.

    4. In My Tree: This one has a puppet-like interaction that both of my boys loved.

    5. Charlie Monkey is our number one favorite – the funny animal faces always get lots of laughs and love.

    Keep in mind, these are the board books my babies seem to love the most. I have my own favorites as well, but these cross over a bit. And I love all of the Sandra Boynton books and am going to introduce those to Calvin soon too.

    What are your favorite board books for babies?

      I’m so glad to see you love Sandra Boynton books too! My new granddaughter just got “But Not The Hippopotamus” and the “Going To Bed Book”. Those are the first in the collection I found, as I continually look for them all. All my grand babies have gotten these books from me, as they are the ones I read to my children.

    •  Three things: 1. You've got one day left to enter my @mywildbird sling giveaway, so head over to my blog (link in profile) and tag your friends. 2. I was featured on @loyal_hana blog as part of their motherhood series, so if you want to give it a read and hear about my typical (hot mess) day or how I (don't) balance work and mothering head to their profile to find the link to their site. I pretty much live in their nursing-friendly clothes and was honored to be featured. 3. Charlie took this picture (and basically directed me for the shot) and it makes me really really happy   Putting the finishing touches on the boys' bedroom and had to stop to admire the magic that the morning light and their @babyjives mobile was making. ✨☁️⭐️❤️✨#charlieandcalsroomredo
       Can a person be your happy place? Because I'm pretty certain that Quincy is mine ☺️✨ #quincyrhys #thatdimpletho  This week was a rough one. I feel like I say that every week but this one really was. Today alone had me at my breaking point. All three of my kids seemed hell bent on driving me crazy. Quincy literally wouldn't let me put him down or leave the room without a major scream-cry fest. He rode around on the fuss bus allllll day. Tropical storm Calvin left destruction in his wake everywhere he went (if you follow me on snap/stories you got a little sampling but that was nowhere near the extent of it). At one point I went into a room away from my kids and sat in a chair and cried. Within three minutes one of them found me (of course) gave me a hug, and we were all better (except Calvin -- I think this is his permanent state ). This photo is my version of thinking happy thoughts. Bougainvillea vibes ✌️️✨
