1. [put me in the zoo - by: robert lopshire] this book has been in the family since i was a little girl. my mama loved reading it to me. its a pretty silly book.

2. [plan toys - my first camera] obviously this is a favorite. lincoln always sees mommy taking photos. the coolest part about this toy is the lens is actually a kaleidoscope.

3. [cherokee -  infant boys henley tank] we had been stocking up heavily on winter clothes, now that its finally warm we needed some easy tank tops for the little guy. this one looks so cute on him.

4. [california baby - sunscreen] obviously this is a necessity during the summer. but california baby is our favorite baby product brand. we also use the baby soap, bubble bath, and lotion.

5. [anamalz - wild zebra wooden toy] a great chew toy with different textures to explore. this zebra is always hanging in the car seat or diaper bag.

6. [magnetic alphabet & numbers] this might be my favorite toy right now because these magnets are on our refrigerator and i love having company in the kitchen when i'm cleaning and cooking. they keep lincoln very occupied, even though most of them end up in the dogs bowl.

7. [ikea - reso children's picnic table] i want to thank ikea for finally making an easy piece of furniture to put together. most of their furniture is "easy" i guess but it takes soo long once you get started. this table took me 10 minutes to put together. and its really sturdy. you cannot beat this price. staple piece for a summer outdoors. (or indoors)

8. [melissa and doug - wooden puzzle] lincoln cannot figure out this puzzle quite yet, but he does enjoy banging the wood pieces together. we are working on animal noises and as you can tell, we love the zoo. 


  1. Just wanted to say hi :) I saw your Instagram account and noticed you live in Chicago- I do as well. I am a wannabe blogger but so busy to become what I want. I just became a 1st time mommy two weeks ago so maybe now I can pick it up. When I'm not feeding a babe! Your son is adorable and your blog is so fun! Enjoy summer in Chicago! Finally!

    1. hey abby! congrats on your brand new little one. such an exciting time. don't stress yourself out over a blog now. enjoy your time with your newbie and get sleep when you can. if you look back in my history.. i did not blog much until lincoln was a little older. you enjoy the summer as well! thanks for your kind words ;)
