ipad miniIn our family, we had two kids close together who are now 8 and 6 and then we had a pretty good-sized age-gap before the next one came along; my daughter was 5 when our baby was born. One of the craziest things was how much things changed in 5 years. Some changes took some getting used to (it makes for a very long 40 weeks when you’re getting daily updates on your phone about how your baby is the size of a kumquat, now a slightly larger kumquat, now a slightly larger kumquat), but some changes have been fabulous.

There are rockstar mommas out there who make their own baby food. I am not one of them. Even when I only had one, I just remember steaming and pureeing and straining peas and then adding pumped milk and thinking, “This is NOT just as easy as buying baby food in a jar! Everyone lied!

One of my favorite things about having a baby right now are the new pouch purees. We’ve fed these to Baby Willbo (or Baby Whale, as Sara’s youngest calls him) since we started him on solids, and now even though he just turned 1 and he’s eating mostly table foods, we still probably do 1-2 pouches a day; they’re great when we’re on the road or when we’re short on fresh fruits and veggies or when he can’t eat what we’re eating.

Plum Organics is one of the brands we love (Blueberry Pear and Purple Carrot is one of Will’s all-time favorites, and he loves their real fruit gummies). If you head over to the Plum Organics Amazing Moments Facebook page, you can enter to win a year’s supply of Plum Organics baby and toddler foods (and don’t tell anyone, but I give them to my big kids, too–it’s pretty much the only way I can get my super-picky oldest to eat his veggies.) All you need to do is enter a video of your baby doing something awesome–this one’s mine!

But we wanted to give you guys something, too–we’re giving away a box of Plum Organics goodies…

    Jane Johnson says:

    I love when my little 16 month old comes up with the most clever things, it makes me realize how much credit they deserve for figuring out the world around them so well! And I also secretly love the extra snuggles I get when they’re sick, even though it breaks my heart that they’re not feeling well.

  18. 18
    Jen says:

    Being a first-time mom, I love pretty much everything about my baby. Baby snuggles just might be the best thing in the world! I love baby food pouches! I keep my diaper bag stocked with them.

    Toss-up between that cute sit-but-can’t-crawl-away, learning to entertain themselves stage, and the under-my-chin snuggles :)

    Anne says:

    My daughter just turned one, and I love that she is literally learning new things every day. Like how one day she can kind of put one peg in a hole, and the next, she’s stacking 4 of them together. Amazing!

    Michelle Toney says:

    My son’s first birthday is this Thursday and he has just discovered his tongue. He sticks it out and grabs it and curls it and lolls it about. And my favorite thing is that he just started clicking it; and then he smiles really big :)

    Lucille says:

    I love when babies get to be about 1.5 years old. They’re soooo cute st this age! They are a perfect combination of being an infant and being a toddler. They’re still chubby-cheeked and not quite talking yet but they can walk and are a bit more independent.

    Briana Wood says:

    I just had my sixth baby in 8 years. I love so many things about all the stages but some of my favorites that are happening now at our house is my two year olds smothering love for his baby brother and my three month old getting milk all over because he is smiling like crazy at me while he nurses. There are so many more I love with all the stages of all my kids! Best job ever! Dirty diet coke sure helps on the rough days though! Thanks for that one! ;)

    Haylee Marshall says:

    My third baby is just behind yours at 11 months and I love how hilarious everything is to him. He just lights up for everything (except diaper changes). You would think peek-a-boo, or bath time, or mom coming to get him after a nap would get old or normal eventually but every time he still gives that face that says he LOVES it all.

  84. 84
    Marie says:

    My favorite thing is how they sit in your lap and it feels like they were made to sit there – their head nestled under your chin, their back pressed against your stomach, their little legs inside yours. Mine is 5 now, and he still fits there, but not with quite the same ease, and it makes me sad. I miss it!

  85. 85
    Jen says:

    amberO says:

    My favorite thing about my toddler right now is how affectionate she is. At 18 months she loves to give hugs and kisses and it is the sweetest thing. I wish I could stop time right here! We LOVE Plum Organics and she still eats at least one pouch a day. Her favorite food right now is their yogurt dippers!

    Olivia says:

    My babies are 8 month old twin boys and I adore the way they play and interact together . . . love when they’re sitting next to each other and continuously swap their favorite toys; love when they’re in their Johnny Jumpers and trying to hold onto each other as they jump around vigorously; but I especially love reading them books and watching their faces light up and beam, as they intently watch each turn of the page.

  97. 97
    Julia Pineda says:

    My favorite thing so far, what w this being our first baby, is the way she lights up with a smile and frantic jumping when she hears my voice or walk in a room. No one will love you more unconditionally, or not care if you make mistakes and are figuring it out, then your sweet baby. LOVE love love that, along w a million other things this little girl does.

  109. 109
    Kristine says:

    I love how genuine babies/toddlers are. They know only how to express themselves honestly. If they are happy, they smile or laugh. If they are sad, they cry. etc. etc. I wish we could all stay that way forever.

  114. 114
    Candice says:

    Toddlers are my favorite because they’re just so alive. They feel and explore everything so intensely and laugh with their whole spirit. It’s my favorite time, by far. (PLUS! They’re a little more independent so you get part of your Mommy brain back to yourself. lol)

  115. 115

  116. 116

    I love how friendly my children are with everyone they meet and that my 4 year old greets people by telling them his nickname but then says my friends call me firstname lastname. It’s hilarious.

  118. 118

    I love “rings” around chubby wrists and tight hugs around your neck and when one of your other children gets the baby/toddler really laughing (which is then contagious to everyone around).

    Allie says:

    I love it when my babies started making goofy faces, like scrunching up their faces, especially when you pull the camera out. these little ones are so funny, I think there is more laughter in the home when there is a toddler in it.

  130. 130
    Paige W says:

    Currently, my favorite things about babies/toddlers is those little their little faces make when they scrunch their little noses. My 1 yr. old does it all the time – it is the absolute cutest!

    Lisha Folsom says:

    One of my favorite stages is when my baby was brand new and every time she would lay her head on my chest, she would invariably nod off to sleep. I love being able to provide that sense of security and love.

    I love the “lets have a party anytime” attitude my almost 3 year old exhibits most hours of the day. He is always ready to dance, sing, and play!!

    Richelle says:

    Currently, my two year old is learning to have conversations. She’ll come up and babble, with of course some real words and her own made up words, and carry on a conversation with full expressions and body language. It’s fantastically wonderful!

    I love when they begin to talk and don’t say words correctly. Soooo cute!!!

    We are huge fans of Plum Organics! One of my favorite things about Jack right now is he loves to be chased. The glee that comes over his face when we chase him is priceless!

    I love hearing a toddler’s observations of the world. It may not make sense to me, but it always makes sense to him/her.

    My favorite thing about little ones is their curiosity. Everything is new to them, and their wide-eyed awe is exciting (and adorable!) to witness.

    I love that they let me cuddle them. My four year old will not let me cuddle him anymore.

    What I miss about babies and toddlers is the natural happiness in their eyes: no worries but where mama is!

    I love the baby sounds and coos they make when you are having a conversation. Also? Finger dimples! And having them fall asleep on your chest.

    I love it when they recognize their name and look to see who’s talking to them!

    Wendy Wilson says:

    The smell of a newborn baby’s head is one of my favorites, but I also love the huge smiles that my 10 month old gives me when I come in his room to get him after his naps. It’s so nice to have someone so excited to see you every time. :)

    I love the innocence of toddler’s. They don’t judge and love everyone.

    Jennifer says:

    I am loving the stage we are in right now! Almost 23 months and talking up a storm about everything she sees, wants, discovers. It is so much fun! The fits aren’t as much fun. :)

    Neesha says:

    I love the never ending leg-hugs I get from my toddler!

    Kristin says:

    My favorite thing about little ones these days are first words. I love how the words they say sound sorta like the real words (or nothing like them), but they try so hard and it’s so cute how excited they get when they learn.

    Jordyn says:

    Jaime says:

    My favorite stage is when they are two years old–you can figure out what they want, but they aren’t talking back yet. They are so cute and funny as they are learning new things. It made me sad when my youngest turned 3 and I realized I would never have a 2 year old again!

  175. 175
    Christy W says:

    OMG what’s not to love about babies? My babies are 9 and 14 & I still can’t get enough of them. Ok, sometimes I can get too much of the 14 year old :)
    My favorite thing has to be hugs. Is there anything better that a baby/toddler or even a teenager hug?

    Bonnie says:

    I love the fits of giggle my twin babies have when playing peekaboo in the curtains together – it makes me forget about all the stresses in my life, working full time, in-laws, raising twins…

    My favorite thing about babies is when you realize that what they just said is an original thought. That was the best!

    I love everything about babies, but especially rocking a content little bundle who doesn’t have a care in world. So peaceful (even if only for a moment!).

    James says:

    My current favorite thing about my soon to be 3 year old toddler is when he gives me and/or my wife a thumbs up and says “Roger That”. Not sure where he picked that up but it sure makes me laugh when he does it.

    Rachel H says:

    My youngest is almost one and I love watching him wander around exploring everything.

    Anne says:

    Those pureed pouches are the best! Our Jack (13 months) loves the spinach one in the picture. I think they are pretty tasty, too. My favorite thing right now is his complete love of books. He’ll haul them all over the house to bring them to us to read to him. He is pointing at his books and jabbering about them from when he wakes in the morning until when he goes to bed. He also has two English Majors for parents…

    Becki Barker says:

    I just had my 3rd daughter two weeks ago and one of my current favorites is all the snuggling that goes on! I forgot how much I enjoy just holding her while she sleeps and just watching her precious face. Love love love.

    Little bums in panties. My 2.5 year old is currently potty training, and see her little bum run around in panties is just about the cutest thing ever.

    I love hearing babies laugh, especially at the goofy things we do…over and over again! My baby (my 5th) is turning 2 in a couple weeks and his babyhood has just gone by too quickly. Enjoy those fleeting moments! And thanks for the give-away.
