Summertime Dresses for Baby Girls

It is summertime! The weather is delightful in Orange County, CA. We are spending our days relaxing at the beach, giggling with our family, and cruising the best malls! Check out these delightful summer frocks, all from Saks Fifth Avenue. The AListBaby has been looking cute this season!




AListBaby Loves: Baby Biscotti

Dressing up AListBaby is one of our great joys in life! We love soft pink, white, and occasionally a pop of bright colors. Every day is dress-up day at our house. While we often stay close to home since AListBaby is still so little, we always have our little girl looking her best. One of our very favorite baby clothing designers is Baby Biscotti! We love the Lace Lullaby Infant Girl’s Top and Pant with Lace Details. The sweet lace and rosebuds on the top and the trim of the pants is just adorable. It is the softest cotton! Truly something special. Baby Biscotti pieces are timeless and beautiful.

AListBaby Loves: Red Envelope Gifts

With baby girl arriving any day now, I have been trying to get a jump start on holiday shopping! I love the curated collection at Red Envelope….I feel like their buyers do the hard work of finding unique and stylish gifts, and I can log on and select presents for our whole family! I can even search by recipient, which is a great feature. Since we have a special fondness for exceptional baby gifts, we recently selected these chinese baby blocks. The quality is outstanding, and we love the heirloom quality of the wooden blocks. We know babies are very impressionable, and we love the idea of teaching a little one a foreign language early on. Of course…I will be reading baby girl Italian children’s books!

Hospital Door Announcements!

I love spotting new must-have baby products! While on our hospital tour a couple of weeks ago, Mr. AList and I spotted these a-door-nimals, which are cuddly birth announcements for the hospital door! Many people had them on their door…and I would not want baby girl to be left out of the fun. We are thrilled with the Treasure Pocket Lamb with pink trim. You can also get blue or pink bears…and other animals. Mr. AList can write her name and vitals on it after her birth! Then everyone who walks by our door can see the good news! When she gets older, the pocket in the back can hold her teeth for the tooth fairy!




Love the pediped Baby Shoes!

We received the prettiest pink shoes in the mail yesterday from pediped! They are sparkly pink with a pink bow at the toe…called the Stella. Love them! Pediped has many new athletic styles, cold weather boots, great new styles for school, and stylish dressy pairs for the holidays! You know the best part about pediped shoes? The new improved anti-slip resistant sole on the originals shoes. Safety AND style. You have to love that in a shoe!

Convenient Baby Products from JJ Cole GIVEAWAY

I am getting the nursery all ready for Baby Girl, and I cannot wait to share photos. In the meantime, I have been stocking up on the essentials.

My girlfriends recommended two items from JJ Cole, so I contacted the company for both products to review. My friends said they were “can’t live without” products..and now I see why! The diapers & wipes caddy is going to be so convenient when changing diapers downstairs. It is my own little changing station, so I do not have to walk all the way upstairs every time I want to change her diaper. I love the space for diapers, wipes, ointment, and even toys. And the changing mat folds right in. It is already in my family room on our coffee table…just waiting for baby girl! I also love the car seat arm cushion!

The easy-attach design provides a comfortable, secure grip on our car seat. (And those car seats are HEAVY with baby inside!) I know this cushion will make it a lot easier to tote her around. I am looking forward to the strong arms I will develop from carrying her around! Thanks to JJ Cole for sending us these must-have items. I really do think they are essentials for every mom-to-be! One lucky winner will get both items! Just email us the color diaper & wipes caddy you want by August 28 to alistbabyblog (at) yahoo (dot) com.

Loving the Fall Accessories

We are starting to think about FALL here at the AListBaby office! And we adore these designer accessories available at Saks. I would love to slip baby girl’s feet into these baby Burberry shoes. How cute are they?!

And are you just loving this baby Gucci fedora for a little guy?

If baby girl could see this baby Gucci jacket, she would be begging for it. (But I think I would get it in a bigger size so she could wear it for awhile!)

And these Juicy boots are the CUTEST I have ever seen! Perfect for a family ski trip!

Personal Creations: Super Mother’s Day Gift for a Super New Mom

Aren’t these the coolest baby rompers you’ve ever seen? They are from and can be customized for the baby. We just love that they’re a bit different than the traditional romper but still feature snap convenience and are available in size 12, 18 and 24 months. Mother’s will love this gift for Mother’s Day! This site has gifts moms love!

AListBaby Loves: Fisher-Price Snugabunny

We have reviewed a lot of baby swingsthis past month…and we have our favorite. The Fisher-Price Snugabunny! Outside of your arms, we think its the perfect place to be from birth until baby can climb out (or 25 pounds!). It is smooth, quiet…and babies love it.

It Soothes
• Soothing music and alternate swinging motions help calm baby and promotes a sense of security.
• Plush fabrics enhance baby’s sense of security by providing comfort.
• Seeing baby’s own image in the mirror encourages self-recognition, enhancing emotional development.

It Engages
• Seeing baby’s own reflection and other objects in mirrored globe stimulates baby’s visual sense.
• Rich fabrics and textures stimulate baby’s tactile sense.
• Watching and anticipating motion of birdies fosters overhead visual tracking skills.
• Listening to nature sounds as well as musical selections strengthens auditory skills.

It’s Perfect for Mom

• Choice of three positions in one swing—variety for baby and convenience when you want baby facing you!
• Easy to convert from one position to another.
• Folds for storage and portability.
• Plug-in option saves money on batteries!

AND…it looks cute! We are quite simply in love with this baby swing.

Archipelago Botanicals

Spring is in the air here in Dallas…and we are freshening up our home for the new season. We were delighted to receive a luxe and delicious-smelling candle from Archipelago. The scent is Lemmongrass, and it is part of their AB Home collection of candles. Their hand-poured Lemmongrass soy candle contains more than 70% natural soy wax, which burns longer and cleaner than regular candles! In fact, the approximate burn time is 90 hours. And we are glad–because the smell is brightening our mood, too! Check out the Archipelago candle collection.
