six month favorites 

y’all. i can’t even figure out where this time has gone? it just seems to fly right out the window! wasn’t magnolia just born a few weeks ago? i still vividly remember it like it was a short while ago. those of you who’ve somehow managed to let your babies go to college…WHAAAATTTTT??? i don’t even want to talk about it.

so with that said, let’s talk about fun things instead, is that cool?

these are the items we wouldn’t have wanted to get through these past six months without. so let’s get this party started – there’s also a giveaway with these things, because duh.

dock A tot

y’all knew i was going to include this. guys sleep is a precious precious gift. and while obviously we’re the worlds okayist parents, i fully believe magnolia sleeps through the night because she has a good routine + a dock a tot. i feel like i sell this bad boy to everyone i come in contact with who has a baby, is pregnant, looks at magnolia like they want another baby. it’s also been used for 7,567 diaper changes, a holder while mama just needs to potty, tummy time, a support when she was learning to sit up, soooo many things. i mean its breathable, all natural 100% cotton, perfect micro climate for infants, and oh so comforting when she’s sleeping. so let’s just go ahead and get real – i’ll probs blog about it again next week + maybe the week after too. if you purchase through this link you’ll get a code for $10 off – here

pjs | elephant

ryan + rose

we use a cutie clip on anything i can get it to wrap around. magnolia doesn’t use a paci, you know because God gave her a thumb i guess (little nuisance). but she does use everything else under the sun to relieve that insane teething pain. when i go to stroller strides girlfriend has at least three clipped on, so when she gets mad and throws her toys they just bounce right back in

– ha, jokes on you kid-

cutie clips are made a little shorter for safety + sanitary reasons, they’re handmade in the US + they can be engraved, because what better way to make sure it’s your kids clip. plus y’all, Lindsey is the sweetest thing around  – follow her in insta + you’ll see.


yes, she’s still wearing l’ovedbaby. and she will be until she doesn’t fit anymore. we we’re so fortunate at baby showers, our friends obviously thought these were the cutest as well + bought us every item we registered for!!

side note – we have great friends.

she’s on her last size run of items so we’re on the market for more. it’s totally okay if you love bright super frilly girl clothes, 100%. i however, do not. besides being incredibly soft, l’ovedbaby offers colors + styles that this mama can completely support!! the leggings are my favorite (because leggings are the only pants worth wearing), but i think the hooded shirt is working it’s way to the top spot.

bunny (similar) | letterboard | bow | pillow

billy bibs 

i mean just stop with these mini bows. on my babies tiny little negative percentile head – please take all my monies!! i’m also not a lover of giant frilly bows, you do you, still no judgment. rarely does a day go by that magnolia isn’t wearing one of these bows. i’ve just found the quality to be so top notch. i mean a few days ago magnolia chewed on one while in the car, i let it dry out + it’ll live to see another day. these are the only ones i’ve found where the headbands + bows are always the same size, quality control my friends. plus oh my gosh they’re adorable. she also offers bibs that are AMAZING, like for real. magnolia has a few she likes to chew on + they’re so darn darling every time she wears one!!

bowcardi | onesie | tights

modern burlap

we love swaddles, no secret there. but as i’ve mentioned before we really love modern burlap. they’re so big + comfy + the prints are so great!! they’re breathable, eco friendly, and goodness are they absorbent (we test this a lot). everything she offers is in black + white. research shows that this stimulates a babies vision – making you a great parent!! i can really get on board with a brand that offers something developmental + attractive. i mean just go look at these prints.

tee | leggings | bow | lamb

loulou lollipop

magnolia is teething, or trying to kill me, it’s still up in the air right now. butttt, i’m assuming teething so we ordered her all the teethers i could reasonably justify (richard probs isn’t on the same page with my definition of bad). so far these jokers are her favorites. also aesthetically speaking, they’re her mamas favorite too. because yes, that’s a donut + they have an ice cream cone. even better, these gals (fun fact: this company is run by twin sisters), are the original creators of these two teether…and ya’ll know how i feel about being loyal to the original.

so with all of that said. head to the instagram to enter to win a little something something.

$100 @ dockAtot + $50 @ ryan+rose + $40 @ l’ovedbaby + $50 @ billy bibs + $50 @ modern burlap

    L’oved baby has a space in my heart for being not over the top frilly for my girl, too. I’m pretty sure I could own one of every single thing they make and be a happy camper.

    I don’t know if I’m more excited about the dock A tot or l’ovedbaby! We’re expecting #2 in two months and it’s crazy how many new things have come out/become popular since we had #1. I’d be excited to try the dock A tot, based on how much you rave about it, and I love the clothes Magnolia wears by l’ovedbaby!!

    We adore our dock!

  5. 10th February 2017 / 3:47 pm

    I’d be most excited to win a dockatot! I have 2 month old preemie fraternal twins who both only want to sleep in my arms and I’ve hard that the dockatot works wonders!!! I’d also be happy about the l’ovedbaby as our baby girl recently was diagnosed with severe eczema and now we are watching what she wears…everything must be cotton and we prefer organic 🙂

    LOVE the bibs from billy bibs! All of the bibs my little Miriam has take away from how cute her outfits are, but the bibs they sell look like a cute accessory! ❤

    These are all SO cute! I don’t know if I could pick a favorite out of all of these!? I do love donuts though, so Loulou lollipop is looking extra yummy!! So happy to be celebrating these 6 months with you!

    I would have to say Imperishable Clothing! I have had an eye on quite a few things, but money is tight. We have 2 boys three years and 8 months, we are always on the move! I would also love a DockATot!

  10. 10th February 2017 / 4:25 pm

    Would be sooo excited to win the shop credit to dockatot❤❤❤. Your little girl is gorgeous!!!

    I would be thrilled to have the Dock ATot. That credit would help sooo much considering I’ll need two of them! I pray for the twins to be good sleepers, and I really think the Dock will help!!

    My husband and I just had our first baby boy! I’m a local photographer and he owns a sports store in town and were so eager to watch her little boy grow well I capture every moment and of course will have plenty of sports to choose from! Being a new mom is crazy and having the right tools to do it helps so much, I hope I win! Your blog is wonderful and baby is adorable!

  14. 10th February 2017 / 5:38 pm

    Absolutely love ALL of the products from these shops but haven’t had the chance to try any of them yet unfortunately- would love the chance to! My sister in law has a blanket from Modern Burlap that I absolutely love. We have an almost one year old baby boy and are hoping to have another little one on the way sometime soon. Would love to try these products with our next babe. Ps your baby girl is jusy beautiful!

    I think I am most excited about the dockatot but everything is so amazing it’s hard to just pick one!

    Nichole! I NEEEED all of these! I’m dying for a dock a tot for this new baby, seem to lose paci clips like it’s my job and my blanket dragging kiddos aren’t sharing any of their blankets so ima need some new modern burlap swaddles. Also, all the dreamy things at billy bibs. Oh and I need to ease Ian’s anxiety over the cost of another girl – hehe!

    Love all the pictures of your sweet girl! 💗

    Girl! You know I’m d’ying for a doc a tot! Every item is precious & a must have but I’m drooling over that doc a tot… The 3rd K needs to get it together & sleep at night + she needs a safe place to lay when she wants to sprawl out … The other K’s are cray!

  18. 10th February 2017 / 7:49 pm

    Agh all of them!!! Imperishable clothing or dock a tot for our baby brother on the way!!

    FTM expecting in 4 weeks…Eek! I would be MOST excited for the dock-a-tot everyone has been raving about! Also love everything from l’ovedbaby as both my husband and I have sensitive skin and will be extra careful with what we put our little girl in once she makes her appearance.

    My best friend just gave birth to her sweet baby boy and I would love to be able to win this for her.She is already such a wonderful mommy and I know she would be SO excited about it because she loves everything that was mentioned! ❤❤

    All the shops are amazing but I’d love the dockatot credit.
    We use ours all the time, it’s been a lifesaver and we could really use a few more covers! 😊

  22. 11th February 2017 / 1:31 am

    Thank you for sharing all these great products! My son is almost 6 months too and some of these would make life so much easier. He recently was diagnosed with plagiocephaly and has to wear a helmet 23 hours a day. It’s been a rough adjustment…especially for sleep! We recently started to co-sleep because it’s the only way either of us can get any rest (he won’t nap unless he is in a carrier). I would like to be safer about it, so having a Dock-a-Tot would be so amazing! His helmet wasn’t covered by insurance, so unfortunately we can’t purchase one since we purchased that. I’ve heard so many good things about them!

    The dock a tot would be great to have not only for co sleeping but for everyday activities. All these places are amazing and have some great items!

  24. 11th February 2017 / 7:07 am

    A while back I would not have been interested in a Dock a Tote, but now we’re downsizing and suddenly it seems like the most obvious thing! Would love to have one!
    This is a great giveaway! And yes, it is crazy how unbelievably fast they grow up! My baby just turned nine months yesterday! -Lisa

    Such good recommendations! There are so many awesome products that either didn’t exist or i wasn’t aware of with my firsr. So excited to try these out for baby no. 2 due in July. I entered your giveaway on Instagram. I am most excited to win a Dockatot!

  26. Ashlin

    I would loooove a dockatot for baby #2! Baby #1 was a colicky, crappy sleeper, so anything to help with sleep is amazing!!

    11th February 2017 / 4:03 pm

    I love everything about these giveaways! Def my favs are anything Modern Burlap…their quoted swaddles could be nursery decor + a wrap for my sweet babes?! Brilliant! And these donut teether necklaces are too cute. Nursing my twin boys has made me CRAVE sugar & I have ate my fair share of donuts 🍩🍩….(and sometimes that involves a middle of the night snack session 😳).

    12th February 2017 / 5:49 pm

    Every item in this giveaway is awesome! I’d be most excited to win the dockatot credit! My best friend is pregnant with twin girls and I would love to gift her with this!

    I think I would have to say the dock A tot! But also can’t forget about the dreamy soft organic cotton of l’oved baby!

    Everything looks and sounds amazing!!! If I had to choose one, I would be the dockatot. A mama needs some sleep!!!

    I’d be most excited to win a dock a tot! I have heard such great things about them and I AM HAVING A BABY TOMORROW!!!!! Our second and it’ll be by a c-section this time, but anything to help a baby sleep especially with a toddler around I would be ALL FOR! Thanks for the opportunity to win – your sweet girl is adorable and I love reading about your favorite products!! 🙂

    My favorite of all your picks is a dockatot. In adding our new addition to our family I just forgot how hard it is to get the baby to sleep.

  33. Natasha Crafton
    13th February 2017 / 1:47 pm

    These are definitely all of baby must haves! I love all of them! I’m recovering from a c-section at the moment and would absolutely love to swaddle my baby with modern burlap swaddles! I know the owner of Modern Burlap is having a high risk pregnancy too and I love that she is brave enough to share her story to everyone. It’s inspirational and has helped this mama have faith. Thank you for putting together this sweet blog post – all of these items are precious! 🖤♡🖤♡
