Once Ella got out of the sleep all day newborn stage, it became pretty clear very quickly that she needed some kind of entertainment if I wasn't going to be holding her. Seeing that I couldn't hold her all day long, I needed something that could do that for me! We started off with a playmat, which was great because she could roll around and play with the toys above her. However she would often want to sit up, or have the feeling like she was upright. This only increased as she got older and she was bored of being on her back or stomach. When we got the Baby Einstein 2-in-1 Lights & Sea Activity Gym & Saucer it was a game changer! This was the crème de la crème of activity!
Ella was instantly attracted to all the different toys, lights and music going on. There is so much variety within the saucer that your little one stays entertained. For example, each toy on the saucer offers a deeper dimension of play. They are unique and require her to do different tasks; for example having her lift the clam up to find the pearl, and then having the pearl be a button she can push and it makes a sound! She loves that. The tray table offers an oceanful of activities to keep little hands busy, including a whale popper with beads that spin, a clamshell toy and bead chaser, spinning crab, bendy leaf stalk toy, and a fish bead spinner.
I wanted to give a little shout out to something I have been working on. These adorable vintage rompers from Lunaby Baby! These baby rompers are a nod to the past; with a classic romper cut, and touch of lace. They can be paired with overalls, leggings, tights... or simply bare legged for your little one to cool off during the hot months. The light, breathable fabric is perfect for summer! They come in gingham, and polka dots.
The rompers are only $14.95 and I wanted to let you guys know about it in case you wanted to pick some up for the 4th! These colors just scream Fourth of July and Summer.

After having Ella, Carter's quickly became my favorite place to shop for her. First off, everything was absolutely adorable, secondly you can't beat their prices. They have everything you would need for every stage making sure all your baby essentials are covered. I have also found Carters to be the best fit for Ella! We are coming up on a year with our little girl and I can say that Carter's is that trusted brand that I know I can get something I don't have to worry about. I thought I would put together some of my must-have pieces from Carter's that I love and use all the time!
Ella typically wakes up early in the morning and plays for about an hour and a half to two hours, before going back down for a long morning nap. Because of this little routine, I typically keep her in her pajamas, or some type of comfortable lounge wear. Carter's is by far our favorite place for pajamas! I find the fit is great while often leaving the perfect amount of room to grow into; she has a pair of pajamas that I swear worked for her for months because of this! The durability and longevity of Carters clothing is the best! Besides the great fit, and being comfortable, Carter's always has the cutest designs. There is a store right by my house and I always have to restrain myself from getting something from new cute line releases. I couldn't help but snatch up this gorgeous spring looking number from the Carter’s Little Baby Basics Collection.
