oh, baby ūüćľ

J: HI GUYS! Long time. Let’s catch up.

We blinked and Baby James is almost 4 months old! He’s the sweetest, happiest little boy (see instagram.)

I was thinking the other day about when I was pregnant and how I would comb pinterest and blogs looking for must-have items for baby. Now that James has arrived, I feel I have recommendations of my own to share! I’m a mom. It’s wild.


the goods.


We alternate between honest diapers and pampers swaddlers. They both work great for us, but honest diapers aren’t available on amazon. If you don’t have a prime membership, get on that.

Honest wipes are the only way to go. Buy them in bulk at Target.


Okay. Our bathtub. Kind of obsessed with it. The Aquascale 3 in 1 tub tells you the temp of your water before you put baby in, works for infants and toddlers, and the best feature… it has a built in scale. It may sound silly, but we love weighing him at bath time and tracking his growth!

Mustela products are by far the best. I keep their face wipes with me at all times for a quick spit up clean up. The foam shampoo is amazing (and great for clearing up cradle cap!) Just started using the hydra stick for forehead flakes. Game changer.


Swaddles. There are a million available and we bought most of them. WITH THAT, Halo Sleepsack Swaddles win the game. Period. We also used Swaddle Me swaddles prior to discovering Halo and they were good!


The ever so popular Sophie la Giraffe is loved in our house! James is also into O-Balls and the Noggin Stick.


Out of everything, the one item I constantly recommend (especially to boy moms!) is the Keekaroo Peanut Changing Pad. No. Covers. To. Wash.

Some will say a wipe warmer isn’t worth purchasing, but I disagree. We love our Prince Lionheart Wipe Warmer! Be sure to buy the replacement pillows to keep the wipes fresh.

Trust me. You will have to change a dirty diaper on the go and need a place to put it. I keep Sassy Bags in the car and in my purse aka diaper bag. Must. Have.


I know what you’re wondering. Where are the CLOTHES? That deserves its own post. I’m obsessed with dressing this child. STAY TUNED. X0

Before we went on our baby-moon, I did some research on local restaurants. Fortify Kitchen & Bar was at the very top of the list with rave reviews. Needless to say, it lived up to the hype.

Not pictured: Jay’s filet. Because it was instantly devoured. Highly recommend checking them out if you find yourself in the Clayton / Lake Burton, GA area. We will be back for SURE.

Fridays are always CRAZY around here, so we usually take it easy in comfy basics.

The BCBGeneration knotted top is no longer available, so we linked to some similar options on Shopstyle. Check it all out here. Happy Friday!

short stuff.

It’s been an unusually cool spring here in Georgia so far…but today the weather is perfect for debuting this cute pair of tribal shorts.
