Aiden is a year and a half! You can read his 18-month update here. In the last six months, he has really started to change developmentally so I wanted to share some of his favorite things. Here are our most used items 18-months edition — from the new things we are using to some of his old favorites.

The Beatbo is something Aiden has had since the very beginning and he still loves it. We love watching his development around Beatbo from just staring at the lights in his early days to learning how to push the buttons to now where he is dancing and singing with it. He loves the Beat BowWow too.
Aiden loves books. He will carry them around and come and sit in our lap and ask us to read to him. He even reads himself which is really cute — we can’t understand a word he is saying (unless it’s about animals because he can make animal noises). He especially loves Dr. Seuss, the Sesame Street First Library, and the Lost My Name books, but really it’s whatever book he can get his hands on and grab off the shelf 😆
Aiden loves to eat. He typically has the three main meals and then sometimes an afternoon snack of yogurt or fruit. He is getting really good at eating with forks and spoons. We love these Re-Play utensils. For plates, we use this personalized Dylbug plastic plate and Nuby Bamboo Printed Bowls. Our favorite cups are the Munchkin Miracle 360 cups and Nuby has a similar one that we use a lot.
Bathtime is still a big part of Aiden’s routine. He loves playing and splashing around in the water. We use Johnson’s Baby Shampoo and alternate between Aveno and Babyganics bubble bath. Babyganics makes more sudsy bubbles but the Aveno smells really nice. We have surprisingly had really good results with Seventh Generation Coconut Care line of products. We use the foaming wash and diaper cream. We also use Seventh Generation laundry detergent.
Aiden is still in his crib (p.s. it’s on special and you can use the promo code FRIENDS (6/15-6/18) to save 20% for their friends and family sale). He also still loves the DockATot Grand (save $10 with referral link). Now that he is older we do give him a light blanket, but he doesn’t seem to really use it. He still sleeps with a sound machine too.
Out and about:
Aiden is still rear facing in his Chicco Next Fit car seat. We are still using the Chicco stroller for our main stroller and the Graco LiteRider for our travel stroller. We still wear Aiden occasionally in our Lillebaby carrier — now that Aiden is heavier we really like the lumbar support this carrier provides. We love hiking with Aiden so we got a gently used Kelty Pathfinder Backpack and we love it.
I think that’s about it for our favorite products and the things we use the most.
