    Celebrating Baby #3 With a Baby Goodies Giveaway

    Baby Goodies Giveaway Celebrating  Baby #3 | ohlovelyday.com

    In case you missed the news, I’m expecting baby #3! And since we’re celebrating over here, I thought it would be fun to host a huge giveaway of all of the things I fell in love with during my first two pregnancies and newborn experiences (many of which I gave away thinking I was done having babies!) I know quite of you readers and followers are pregnant along with me, so I want to share my favorites with you. One lucky winner will get all of the following:

    1. Solly Baby Wrap and Swaddle Set: If you follow me you know how much I loved using the Solly Wrap with Calvin. I’m sort of addicted to them and was sad when he no longer would let me wrap him up. But for those first few months… it was the best! And now they have super soft and pretty matching swaddle sets. The best part is you get to pick both colors/prints that you want in your set. And the winner will get their choice of both!
    2. 4Moms mamaRoo: I pretty much love everything 4Moms does, but their mamaRoo, rockaRoo, and Breeze were essentials for me during that first year of baby’s life. The newest mamaRoo pairs with an app on your phone too. You can read more about how much I love it here.
    3. Freshly Picked Moccs: Every momma wants a pair (or ten) and every baby needs a pair. Calvin has several and they are the only shoes that stay on his feet. I can’t wait until he starts walking and gets even more practical use out of them. And baby #3 is coming just in time to get a pair from the Oh Joy! for Freshly Picked collection. Aren’t they darling? Winner get’s their choice of in stock moccs.
    4. Monthly Onesie Stickers & Memory Book from Lucy Darling Shop: I love documenting each month of baby’s life, and Calvin has both a set of stickers and a memory book (that is still blank, but I swear I’ll get to it!) from Lucy Darling Shop. There are so many choices in stickers (the new tutti fruity ones are so stinking cute!) and a memory book for either boys or girls (or gender neutral).
    5. The Ollie World Swaddle: For night sleep, there’s no better swaddle out there than The Ollie World. I’ve raved about this so many times and credit it and good luck for the reason Calvin has slept through the night from an early age. I love that it grows with your baby too, so you don’t need multiple sizes — just one will work for the entire time your baby is swaddled!
    6. Tubby Todd Bath Soap: I absolutely hate to use any products on my babies that aren’t natural or are full of chemicals and words I can’t pronounce. On top of it, Calvin had eczema as a newborn so I had to be very careful what I used on him. We are huge fans of Tubby Todd’s all natural formula and bubbles. The winner will receive a Tubby Todd Lavender Gift Set.
    7. Aden + Anais Swaddles and Sleeping Bag: You can never have enough swaddles and blankets, Aden + Anais make great lightweight muslin swaddles with adorable prints. Once Calvin was no longer swaddled we switched to their sleeping bags, which we also love. The winner will get their choice of in stock print of a classic swaddle set and classic sleeping bag.
    8. Puj Baby Tub: What’s cuter than a baby in a tiny bath tub? Nothing really. I fell in love with Puj’s tub when Calvin was a newborn and it was all we used for the first few months. It makes giving baby a bath so easy and it can hang flat, so it is great for small spaces as well.
    9. Wooden Baby Toys from Bannor Toys: I love baby toys that are unique, made of natural materials, and fun. Bannor Toys makes wooden toys that fit all of those and more. I love their blocks and rattles, especially the state rattles (Calvin has a California one, of course!). The winner will receive a $25 credit to pick out their own Bannor Toys.
    10. Baby Mobiles from Baby JivesI love dreamy mobiles for babies and Calvin loves his cloud mobile from Baby Jives so much. He still loves to look at it and talk to it. The winner will receive $50 in shop credit to buy their own dreamy baby mobile or other decor.
    11. Organic products for mom and baby from Zoe Organics: I have used so many of Zoe Organics products on myself (the belly oil, the everything balm, and the bath soak are staples!) and on baby as well. I especially love the baby bath tea. The winner will receive a $75 credit to purchase their own Zoe Organics products for mom or baby.
    12. Blankets + Apparel from June & January: Oh man do I love everything, and I mean everything, from June & January. Formerly Little Hip Squeaks, their hats, clothes, and blankets have been staples for Calvin. And if I have a girl this time I’m planning on buying playsuits and headbands in every available color! The winner will receive $100 credit to J&J to stock up for their own babe or kiddo.
    13. Fawn Design Diaper Bag: I’ve been on the hunt for a great and stylish leather diaper bag with a backpack option for ever! When I found Fawn Design I knew my search was over. And now that baby #3 is on the way, I’m definitely going to need to have my hands free for babies and kids, so their backpack style diaper bag has become even more of a necessity. And the winner will get one in their choice of black or brown!
    14. Body Pillow from Bump Nest: Wanna know my number one favorite thing right this minute? My Bump Nest body pillow. Pregnancy number 3 is no joke, and the pelvic and hip pain and reflux started early. I’ve been using my Bump Nest since week 8 and it is saving my sleep. I actually do sleep comfortably, thanks to the way this pillow elevates my head and cushions and supports my whole body. It’s heaven for pregnant women. The winner will get one and their choice of cover.

    So there you have it! Some of my favorite goodies for mommas and babies. I’m so excited one of you will win all of this fabulous stuff. The giveaway will run from 7/23/16 – 7/29/16 and the randomly selected winner will be displayed sometime on 7/30 in the entry widget below. Enter below and best of luck!

    We’re Expecting Baby #3!

    Sharing some news... | Oh Lovely Day

    I have some big (and surprising) news to share… We’re expecting baby #3! And for those of you thinking “weren’t you like, just pregnant!?” Yes. Yes, I was.

    Sharing some news... | Oh Lovely Day

    While I did always want three kids, I was not expecting it to happen quite so soon. But sometimes the universe has a way of making things happen anyways, so here we are. While I was a little freaked out at first, mostly because I was not quite ready to relive the morning sickness, we are thrilled and excited to complete our family. It feels meant to be. And it was the biggest and best surprise I’ve ever had.

    Here’s a little video of us sharing the news with Charlie. I was a little nervous for some reason, but he made me realize another baby is just more love to share and that everything will be great.

    I’m 12 weeks along, and due 2/2/16 (although both my babies have come 7-10 days early, so I’m thinking end of January). So next up, is it another boy or a baby girl? We’ll see…

    Five Favorites: Baby Blankets

     

    Five Favorite Baby Blankets | Oh Lovely Day

    One of my baby things weaknesses is a good baby blanket. But blankets are more than cute, they serve a very important purpose. Sometimes many. After 4+ years, two babies, and lots and lots of blankets, I have my favorites and opinions on the best baby blankets out there, sure to serve every purpose you could ever need.

    Best double-duty blanket: The swaddle scarf/blanket from Coveted Things is really big, so it works great as a swaddle, a scarf, a nursing cover, a stroller or car seat cover, and a photo shoot backdrop. Plus they all have sweet or funny sayings, giving them lots of personality.

    Best Everyday Blanket: These bright blankets from June and January (formerly Little Hip Squeaks) are one of my favorite everyday blankets because they are super soft, lightweight, breathable, and cute. Perfect for swaddling and to have in your diaper bag.

    Best swaddle blanket: Aden + Anais are the go-to swaddle blanket for good reason. The cotton muslin makes them the perfect swaddles, but the prints are super cute too. Every parent should have a set of these in his/her blanket arsenal.

    Best Blanky: Every baby should have a super soft and cuddly blanket and my favorites come from Saranoni. You can get a receiving blanket size, or a smaller lovey, or a full size for mom and baby snuggling. These are a must-feel!

    Best keep warm blanket: My favorite sweater blanket is by Wren and Rumor. The colors, patterns, prints, and weight is perfect for some tummy time or as a stroller blanket during chilly walks.

    Bonus: Best Lovey: Angel Dear makes the softest and sweetest little lovey blankets for baby. They are great for cuddling, sucking, and comforting.

    So I know that’s actually 6 favorites, not five but I had to include the lovey. It’s not technically a blanket, so I don’t think I broke my Five Faves rules. I also have a blanket from Max and Moose that I love and that is super soft, and Solly Baby just announced that they are releasing swaddle packs, which I’m really excited to try. There are so many great blanket options out there. What are your favorite blankets for baby?

       50 weeks and you finally decided to throw us a wave every now and then. Also, I think you're trying to drop a nap, which is totally fine by me but just make up your mind m'kay?  #calvinsweekbyweek // tee by @tribeisalive and leggings are @juneandjanuary (when they were LHS) from many seasons ago #whatcalvinwears #calvinsmilestones
       Bath time is the best time. The boys love playing together and I know it means in one more hour they'll be sleeping and I can take a breath! // I've got a bath fun post with @munchkininc coming to the blog next week. #calvinlovesthebath
