Look what I got today!
Glass storage containers for refrigerator leftovers! No more nasty plastic ones poisoning our food!

Next purchase will be this stainless steel sippy cup with handles on it to help Ruby learn to grab onto something and hold and drink out of it. (Yes, she's started drinking water out of a sippy cup!) Then we'll switch her to this, then regular glass cups! (Once she's past her toddler/throwing things stage of course)





Then, I want a real silver spoon.



Silver has numerous benefits and is a huge immune system booster. I just read in my La Leche League book the other day to use real silver spoon to spoon feed your baby because even the little bit that touches their mouth and the food will benefit them. Isn't that cool?!


And last, but not least, I would like to make a (probably already obvious) announcement:

I am starting to hate plastic.

Too many weird bad things that they keep coming out with "oops, now we found this in plastic and it's bad for you..." and "this may also be harmful..."  Have you ever heard a news report on dangerous toxins in wood or glass or fabric? Me either.

So, of course, I am pretty serious about that when it comes to Ruby.
How cute are these little toys? With non-toxic paint, of course.


We are starting to little by little throw our plastic things in the recycling bin and out of our lives. Feels good!

They have some really cool stainless steel cups at ONF. I like that one. I think Elle needs one too :). And no joke I was drinking water out of a plastic thermos type mug the other day in this crazy heat while we were walking and I got so sick! It was horrible and I really think it was the heat baking the plastic and I was digesting it! Nasty!

I LOVE Foogo and Kleen Kanteen cups! Both boys had them, and Paisley will too! Ohand speaking on using wooden toys rather than plastic...not only are they better for baby, but they last longer!!!

FYI for that sippy cup, I just threw ours out I was so mad, don't waste your money (have I ever steered you wrong with baby products?). There's a little vent in the top, but there's no stopper, so it spills in your diaper bag (and on her face if she tipps it too high). Now my diaper bag smells like spoiled milk, gross. We use this one the most:

And really, other than going out, you don't need sippy cups. I started Naftalie with glasses at six months; you'll have to hand over fist with Ruby at first, but it's a wonderful skill for her to learn. I makes life easier when they're toddlers too Jessica, Naftalie can drink out of a waterbottle when we're out, and suck out of my Camelback, because she wasn't taught to drink from a sippy.

yeah, i actually just read reviews of the Foogo on Amazon and hardly anybody liked it. But the Safe Sippy is HUGE! Little Ruby needs something smaller. You taught Naftalie with shot glasses...big surprise we don't have any shot glasses! She can drink from our Klean Kanteens already, but of course can't hold it herself. That's why I thought this would be a good transition. No?
