My favorite things: A Love Story (baby edition).

Since becoming a mama, there are many things that are now part of my daily life that were not even on my radar before. Hello spit up and baby poop, right? Anyway, there are a few items that have made the past four months much, much easier. For that reason, they have become my favorite things in the baby supplies category.

Also known as the straight jacket, this contraption is the best. swaddler. ever.  Before I ordered this blanket from heaven, Dylan would always wiggle his little arms out of his swaddle, get them to his face, and then wake up. This blanket ensures that their arms stay put and the baby burrito remains intact. This has become my new go-to baby shower gift.

These things have saved me from getting peed on so many times. Seriously, I don't know what it is about little boys, but it seems that every time I change Dylan's diaper and don't have a teepee covering his parts, he ends up peeing all over me, the wall, and himself. The only problem in my house is my cat Moo thinks that the teepees belong to him and is always stealing them from Dylan's room.

I ordered this car seat cover from Etsy, and it has been such a great item to have. It protects Dylan from feeling the freezing cold winter weather, as well as helps him stay asleep when we're on the go. Also, it's made from super cute fabric and I always get compliments on it.

Ok, these socks are seriously the cutest. I love that they look like little shoes! These socks are great because 1. they're adorable
2. they actually stay on
3. ummmmm they're adorable 
I have this style, as well as a style that says "boy" all over them (thanks Hollie!). Again I (Dylan, I mean) have gotten tons of compliments on these adorable socks.

LOVE Trumpette socks. Agreed. Colton has little golf Trumpette socks. The swaddle blanket wouldn't even hold Colton's arms in but I'll try again with my next. We got a PEE pee cover thing but it didn't really work, so I'll have to try the kind you have next time.

You are officially a mom, haha. Funny that we actually LOVE these odd baby items.
