Thoughts for Thursday : Shopping for the Baby or Toddler

Sorry friends! I'm not sure how this post went a day early.  Poor scheduling on my part :)  Happy Thoughts for Thursday!

I wanted to do a little round-up today of some small businesses that I love to shop at for gifts and for my son, Brody.  There are so many talented people out there that seriously have the most adorable products.  It's too easy to go hog-wild.  I love it all!

The truth is that I have a difficult time dressing Brody for the winter months.  I want comfortable, cute and functional for him.  If you've been around for awhile, you know I'm a complete sucker for all things smocked and preppy for the little man.  It's really easy to do when it's warm out.  However, with this colder weather; I have a little tougher time picking out his outfits.  I've really become a bit obsessed with little boy leggings.  I'm interested to see what Brody's wardrobe is going to look like this winter.   Here are a few places I've shopped or plan to shop:

Boco Baby
I've been recently introduced to this store and I'm OBSESSED!  They make the cutest personalized items for baby/toddler girls and boys and have the most festive leggings for the holidays.  They make for wonderful baby shower or birthday gifts too!!


Willow Crowns
My friend, Stephanie, has recently joined Megan at Willow Crowns.   They have the most precious and delicate headbands for sweet girls that my ovaries turn every time I see a picture.  I'm so happy they have launched their winter collection which includes a Mama and mini for the little boys.

Sweetest Thing Leggings
I love this shop for their precious leggings.  I feel like Brody channels his inner rockstar when he gets to sport these.  He always get compliments!

The Line by Ale Mulcahy
We are taking Brody to the mountains next month and I feel certain he needs a pair of moose or deer leggings to wear out there.   How cute are these??

Jennifer Ann
I can pretty much guarantee whenever I announce a new baby to the family (no, I'm not pregnant now), that I will do it with a pair of these precious Big Brother leggings.   They have some fabulous personalized accessories as well.  Blankets, headbands, lovies, diaper covers, and more!

And lastly, I love these gingham pants on Brody.  They are comfortable, warm, and come in lots of cute colors.  I'm truly not ready to put my son in uncomfortable jeans (although he does own a pair now) and these pants are a great alternative.  She also has some great smocked outfits and cute appliqué tops. 

I hope you enjoyed this little round-up of kids clothes.  I really have so much fun dressing my son and choosing a style{s} for him.  I will definitely be sad when the day comes that he no longer allows me to dress him.  I guess that means I'll just have to have another one, so I can dress them :)

We have two very special guests host again this week.  Please stop by and say hello to Stephanie at Newlyweds: North and Laura at Happily Ever Parker.  They both have the cutest new little babies!
