The Mama VoxBox

A few weeks ago, I received my second Influenster Voxbox.  This one was tailored to the moms and I was so excited to get my box.  Once I opened up the box, I was surprised at all that in was there. 

The box included Belvita soft baked breakfast cookies, Pond's Luminous Finish, Dr. Scholl's for Her inserts, and Annie's microwaveable macaroni and cheese.  I immediately tried the Belvita breakfast cookies.  They are so good! They are really good for you and they actually fill you up, which tends to be my problem.  Especially in the mornings!  I have already bought some more of these and intend to keep getting them.  Next up was the Pond's lotion.  I love it! It feels really light on your face and has a nice tint to give you a little bit of color without going overboard.  To be honest, I haven't tried the inserts or the microwaveable macaroni yet.  Not because I won't try them ever, but I just haven't really had a chance to yet.  I have been so excited about my boxes so far and I really like being able to try the new products that I probably would not try on my own. 

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Hattie - 6 Months

Hattie is 6 months old!  Half a year!  Where did my baby go?  I still say she's my baby and maybe it's just my denial, but she doesn't seem like a six month old to me.  She still seems like my sweet little baby girl.  At 6 months old, Hattie:

-weighs 15 lb, 1.5 oz (27%)
-height is 25.25 " (19%)
-head measures at 42 cm (39%)
-wears size 3 diapers
-eats 8 oz every 4 hours
-eats three containers of baby food a day..she eats these like a champ..I mean scrapping the bottom!
-has finally moved to her sisters room (they're sharing, but we were scared to do that right away)
-smiles so big when she sees you..seems to recognize immediate family members, even our voices..she'll turn and look for me when she hears me at daycare
-already knows how to work that pouty face when she doesn't like something
-loves to dance, sing, be held!
-is so expressive..from screaming to her facial expressions
-is trying to sit up..mainly because her teachers at daycare are pushing it..I love having a baby, baby so I'm not pushing it at all :)
-wears 6 - 9 month clothes
-grabs and holds onto toys for a brief moment before letting them go

I just love this little baby girl..she can light up a room with that smile!
