How stinking precious is this hooded sweater?  It's SO soft!  Maddy pulls off all of her beanies now but for some reason keeps the hood on, no problem.  So this is great for our cold weather right now.
I mean. . . it has kittens on the front.  I HAD to get it for her! 



Let me tell you about this Jellycat bunny! She drags it everywhere with her. I don't know if she loves it so much because it's super soft and cuddly or because it has a nice tag on it. Tags are her obsession.  If a toy has a tag on it, she's got it.  Give her a bag of tags, and she will be the happiest girl in the world.
Funny enough, it's actually soothing for babies to play and rub on tags ... weird, but it works! 


Excuse me while I go smooch on those chubby legs! 





When we go out together, I usually don't like to take a purse or anything other than a diaper bag...except when we go out with daddy, too.. then I'm a bit of a bag lady!  Ha!Ha!

 I recently ordered this Petunia Pickle Bottom diaper bag, and I'm kind of hooked. (I also have this one, which I still use and will continue to use for probably ever.) Anyway, I love the material and the structure of the PPB bag, and can't wait to use it a lot this summer on the beach or by the pool! 



Because I work from home, Maddy and I get to plan out our days and really do whatever we want. We usually start out with a walk around the neighborhood. We love walking around the golf course paths.
There are always huge packs of ducks or geese that Maddy will squeal at... It's the cutest thing! 





I think Maddy's favorite time of the day is bath time. She splashes and scoots up and down the tub, and eats the bubbles every time I look away... It's become one of her things.  haha. We have quite a few bath towels, but I am in love with the Aden + Anais hooded towel  -- the best!  It's the only one we have that's big enough to wrap her up completely, plus it comes with a super cute wash cloth...which Maddy likes to suck on in the tub... another one of her favorite things to do :) 


Also, because I've had a bit of experience with baby shower gifts and what not, I have a pretty good idea of what a mother would love to receive.  There were sooo many gifts that we ended up not even using.  (SO sad!)  This hooded towel set with any of the Jellycats would not only make a super-cute gift, but it would be something that the expectant mother and baby would get great use out of... just in case you need ideas!  :) 

It's obvious my favorite place to shop is Nordstrom.  You can pick up something for everyone!
I was kind of surprised at how much they have for baby and how great of a selection it is...which is nice because it's all in one place, and you don't have to search and search for what you need. 

Thanks for stopping by!
