I have always wanted one of these kitchen helpers when Adalyn was old enough and love this one from Guidecraft. It comes mostly setup and only minor assembly is required with the feet. It folds up easily to save space which I love. It is a lot lighter than other brands- mostly a positive since I move it from our nook into the kitchen for Adalyn to use.

It has three different heights that you can use for when your child grows or for different counter heights. I use this while I am cooking to have Adalyn stand near me. I let her play with her play food, cut up vegetables for her to munch on, help me stir food, etc. It keeps her occupied while I am cooking and gets her involved in the kitchen. Perfect!
Even though we got this thermometer to use on Adalyn, I think that I am the one super excited about it. The old thermometer we had came in some baby health kit we got for our baby shower. It took 2 whole minutes to take a temperature and as you can imagine, Adalyn hated it. We would take it under her arm and she had to sit still which was nearly impossible. As you may know, with a sick baby, all you care about is nursing them back to health. That is when Troy and I knew that we needed a different thermometer.
I had read about the Exergen brand thermometers on other blogs and knew that this was the route that I wanted to go. It is so easy to use and takes your child's temperature in 2-3 seconds. I love it! I practiced with it the second that I got it so that I would know exactly what to do if we needed it when Adalyn doesn't feel good.
It takes her temperature right on her forehead and doesn't annoy her like the underarm one does. We are very happy with it and it makes a world of difference when your child is sick!
I had never tried savory bars until now and I couldn't believe some of the unusual flavors that Mediterra had to offer. They have bell pepper and green olive bars, black olives and walnuts, kale and pumpkin seeds and sundried tomato and basil savory bars. I tried the bell pepper and green olive bar and to be honest, I was not a fan of the savory variety but the good news is that my 17 month old was a big fan! She loved them! I love when Adalyn loves different healthy foods. For a snack, she will eat half of one of these bars. When it comes to bars, I prefer the sweeter varieties and liked the apricot and pistachio and cherry and pistachio bars from Mediterra.
The giveaway will be for a variety pack of Mediterra bars to one winner and an Exergen Thermometer to another reader!a Rafflecopter giveaway
