A Few of My Favorite *Baby* Things

This Graco Alono Flip It Travel System was part of my Mom's shower gift for Ever, and I LOVE IT. This is the exact one we have, I love the color and polka dots :) The infant seat is wonderful, it snaps in and out of the base in our car and snaps easily into the stroller. The stroller is easy enough to fold and stick in the back of our car, and I the drink holder gets a lot of use at Starbucks :) I love that Ever is so high up when we attach the infant seat to the top of the stroller, and facing toward us. This is incredibly easy to maneuver- maybe my favorite thing about it. I can move it any which way with one hand and little effort; Lola pushes Ever easily at the grocery store or Target. Worth every penny.

The Aden and Anais blankets and swaddles are absolutely divine. They are a bit pricey but worth every penny. We use two or three a day, and I swaddle Ever in their muslim swaddles every night at bedtime, which she has grown to love. They are soft soft soft and breathable, perfectly sized and the designs are gorgeous. Here is Ian holding Ever in her star blanket. I really can't recommend these enough.
What would we do without our Sleep Sheep? We have two, one for home and one smaller strapped to Ever's car seat. The Sleep Sheep makes four different comforting sounds; Ever prefers the rain to fall asleep. I love it for car rides and pushing Ever in the stroller, it helps to calm and comfort her. Everywhere we go, people stop and tilt their heads and eventually say ' Oh! Is that making the noise? I was wondering what that was! ' They always laugh :)

Ever was gifted this beautiful! hat from Giddy Giddy

We have the Graco Quattro Tour stroller and I love it so much. I bet we've put at least 100 miles on the stroller. At least.

I love those swaddle blankets too! We live in Texas and they are great when the weather is warm.

I love those blankets too! We have about twelve of them. I love how versatile they are.

I might have to look into getting something like that Sleep Sheep as my little guy screams in the car. :(

My daughter had that same stroller set for my only granddaughter, Mary Mace. For Christmas when she was one, I found a doll set that was just like it. She still loves that set for her many 'babies'.

I have two pregnant nieces, so I'll be checking out these great items. Thanks for sharing them, Maggie. Ever is as beautiful, well, as EVER! LOL!

I think Ever might be one of the most beautiful names I have ever heard. I love the baby items. Just lovely.

I like strollers which face the people pushing them like yours - babies seem so isolated and enclosed in the ones which face outwards and just watching the mum or dad's face as they are being pushed keeps them happy and encourages them to talk and smile at each other
