TWO WEEKS

Two weeks ago, we welcomed our 3rd boy, James Jason into our family and we could not be more in love with our sweet baby James. He is just so lovely and his big brothers think he is just the cutest! As we have gotten settled at home as a party of 5, I’ve been thankful for all the lovely gifts we have received and I wanted to share my favs. 

Here are my favorite baby items!!! This amazingly soft blanket (from Twinkle Twinkle little one on Belmont & Damen)// this snuggly blanket // these Aden & Anais swaddles // …..my fav Infant car seat – Maxi cosi car seat (so many colors to choose from!!) // the Honest Co. set (perfect for new baby…..their diapers are so adorable too) // and last but not least, Monica +Andy clothing (so soft & sweet!) // 

As for my favorite new mama lounge wear – refer to this Athleta focused post!
