happy b-day baby pants!

mama and daddio shopped for little baby's first birthday week!

she was so so darling learning to unwrap!
oh what fun christmas will be.

my baby is a snuggler so anything soft, plushy n squishy fit the bill...
and here's our top picks for babes numero uno...


this wooden bike was a must-add to our wood inspired toy collection.
plus it is hot pink - oh la la. it's a tad big {at the moment} but she loves to ride it with a little help. ideally it's for a 18 mo - 3 year old so a perfect combo for her first mobile year!

{via glodos bit bike - on sale here}

bath tub time has always been a fave around here and iz could spend.all.day.long splashing around. these bath squirties are the sweetest little creatures and her very favorite?? the aqua octopus. adorbs.

{via elegant baby sea party & elegant baby lagoon party}

boon links for baby baths are just as sweet and stick to the tub walls, yes please! baby just figured out how to get them stuck!

{via boon links}

the softest lil bunny plush around is a bunnie by the bay. so incredibly soft i think i could snuggle him too!

{via bunnies by the bay}

my baby girl grew out of her 9 month jammies one day after she turned 1! lol. and crazy cakes but baby gap had us covered with some sweet milk n cookies 12 month jams. oh my, that tiny elastic waist band is so squeezably precious on her! she loves a good sleeve too so these are a great fit summer fall winter.

a soft little plushie, now officially named piggy, was loved and kissed on by my sweetie poo the second it left it's package!

{via ganz mayhem zoo}

bibs are needed everywhere these days and this one was polka dot delicious! whilst baby never did need the burpie cloth i love the giant size that more than covers all her cute lil outfits!

{via aden+anais}

and this precious oh joy- land of nod pachyderm just happened to land at our doorstep! a perfect match for her room :)

{via oh joy - land of nod}

happy birthday week baby girl, you were so darling to celebrate! mommy & daddy love you so very much.

oh what to get a one year old.

baby izzy loves soft things! like laundry, she loves laundry. freshly folded shirts, socks, towels... she takes one out of the expertly folded basket holds em up to her sweet lil cheeks says ah... and promptly moves on to the next piece, ha! what a darling little doll.

for now mommy doesn't mind ;)

so these gift ideas are sure to please with their plushness...


softest-bunny-ever and so stinkin' darling! i think i could sleep with it too. hoping i can find it here somewhere!

and who doesn't need a brightly colored pachyderm! adorbs. and it matches her room {this one might be on its way ;)}

mama is obsessed with these brightly colored blocks, obsessed i tell you! those colors, oh lala. i would also play with them. lol.

and izzy is still crazy about books! i love it. boynton books are so sweet too for lil babes, bright colors, cute phrases. she's got 2, but they're some of her faves!

well wish us luck! too many cutesy things out there. plus she will probably love the box more... so we best pic a good box. ha ha :)

baby books.

my sweet lil izzy looooves books.

at one of her baby showers her hosts {my sisters} requested books as cards to go with each baby gift! it was so amazing and now that izzy can get into evvvvverything, she gets them out everyday!

hubs and i {izzy in tow, of course} stopped in at acme gifts this weekend on our day trip to see my brother graduate! this is my faaaaavorite shop in manhattan. seriously, hubby said he would buy me something from here every single week if we just had one around home... because i love it that much. super cool mod stuff, fun games, toys, books, you name it. if its quirky or delightful it's in there.

anyway i digress... the point is they carried my fave babylit books!! i have been wanting to snag some for izzy b and havent gotten around to it so it was so sweet to open them up and have a peek!


adorable little baby novels with bright colors... just fantastic board books so they are perfect for tiny fingers!

iz picked out moby dick and romeo & juliet.

great choices baby love ;)

eeeek. now i am sure she wants to whole set!

izzy baby is 9 months old.

sheesh, i don't remember time moving as fast as it does post-izzy!


hubs and i sure don't sleep 12 hours straight anymore {lol}... don't order pizza at 2 am or see 25 theater movies in one summer... {yes, that actually happened} but life is fabulous and we wouldn't want it any other way!

our sweet little munchkin is such a joy and i'm loving this phase of babyhood. so much crawling, scooting, standing, moving around furniture, reading books, playin' puzzles and toys... ah! love it love it love it.

her nine month photo shoot pics turned out darling as ever {by the fab gina} despite izzy thinking this wasn't a day for lots of smiles... she's still pretty darn cute!

{more photos over here}

sweet tea and summertime.

loving these aqua tumbler lids via the mason bar company!


well hello there summertime drinks!

now if i could just get the hubby some time to work on the pool..... ..... .....

spoiled mommy pants.

hubs bought me my fave new kelly moore bag!!
happy mama's day to me!

i looooove it... in its perfect shade of blue!


i already packed it with all the essentials for me and baby.

the cushioned sides... ooh lala...
a removable insert {for super easy packing}
and it holds everything i need without being big or clumsy.

i basically combined 4 bags into 1!

and i especially love feeling confident that the camera is safe inside and can travel!

i sure married a sweetie :)
mwah... thanks love!
