These are a few of our favorite things!
We are seven weeks in and life with a newborn is a total roller coaster. When I was pregnant with princess I was desperately seeking help from all my momma friends for “must have” items and was so grateful for their help and guidance while registering! Although everyone has a different version of their "must have list" and what works for them, these are some of our favorite things we can’t live without. 
I have linked the products but also filled this post with cute pictures of our sweet girl... because let’s be honest I’m sure that’s why most of you are reading this anyway! :)

This is the most shocking of them all... but mom and I literally had to go buy Ella Jane clothes when she got to Dallas! She only had 2-3 little outfits that actually fit her when she was born. Although she wasn’t tiny, everything was wayyyy too big on her little shoulders. I loved the idea of having her in little gowns but the only problem was most of them were so big at the neckline and would just fall off of her. Our favorite everyday outfits are 
Kickee Pants + Lou Lou gowns 
They are both incredibly soft, easy to put on and take off and fit our little girl perfect!
Lou Lou gowns are our favorite
Tummy time is way more fun in Kickee pants!

Up until six weeks at night she exclusively wore the HALO sleep sack

We received THIS paci from an amazon registry welcome box... and of course this hideous green thing is her favorite! Lol they are one solid piece so baby won’t choke or potentially break the paci off
Diapers- everyone has their favorite but daddy (who takes over most of the diaper duty) prefers HUGGIES over everything! We have tried them all :) ps. I also really suggest a diaper genie as well

The AUTO ROCK & PLAY is an actual life saver. She loves to nap in this or hang out. We have several swinging and sitting options (including the 4moms and a bouncing chair) but we get the most use out of the rock and play for sure!
We brought the rock-n-play with us over the holidays... it was literally the first thing we set up at my parents! Here it is behind Lolo 

At night she sleeps in the halo bassinet (lol when she sleeps)

I bought this car seat cover and it has been so nice to have! I have been able to remove the cover and wash and dry it so it stays clean. 


This may sound so simple, but one of our staples is this sound machineWe turn it on every night to dull the roar of our house :) We made a rule to not "be quiet" for the sleeping baby so she will sleep through almost anything! This adds white noise to the dogs barking, the ice machine going, and the LSU football game on TV!

Last but not least, she just got a more compact stroller and we are LOVING it! The Quinny Zapp Stroller in pink is so cute and easy to use. The seat faces both directions and it folds much smaller than the carseat travel system we have. 
Here we are at my parents house scooting around on Christmas morning!

As she is growing and getting bigger our needs are changing. In fact, I wrote this blog post weeks and weeks ago- but I have held on publishing it to see if anything needed to be added or taken off the list!

All the love from baby-land
