Hi readers!  I’m Molly from My Favorite Things.  Caroline was so sweet to ask me to guest post and I am completely honored.  I adore Armelle Jewelry.  I actually have on a lovely little necklace as I type.
                                                
When Caroline asked me to guest post, she left the topic up to me.  Eeep!  I hate making decisions.  So I put it off, and then put if off some more.  And then I realized, I better get to writing or I wouldn’t meet my due date!  Seeing as Caroline has already given birth to baby number three, I thought I would share a few thoughts on motherhood.

I am a mom to three, three fantastically wild, completely imaginative, super cuddly boys.  Occasionally I wonder what it might be like to mother a girl but I quickly realize that I was made for boys.  My first two boys (Tyler + Benjamin) are 19 months apart.  The whole first year of Benjamin’s life was a blur.  It was super hard and exhausting.  So I waited a few years until I knew I wanted one more.  Sweet Nicholas Gray was born last year on Halloween and life hasn’t slowed down.

Being a mom to three has made me more confident.  Some days I feel like I could conquer the world, where in reality, if I could just conquer the laundry – that would be a small miracle.  Motherhood is all encompassing and with each child my heart has grown and stretched in ways I can’t quite describe.  Each little guy has woven his tiny spirit into the very essence of who I am.  They make me a better person and teach me small things I would never learn, if not for them.  But being a mom is hard work and so I thought I would share a few of my favorite newborn essentials that help the transition go a bit smoother.  Well, maybe.

Without further ado – my favorite baby gear.
top two favorite swaddling blankets – the miracle blanket + aden and anais
favorite baby tub
favorite sleepers
favorite baby carrier

Congrats Caroline!  Being a mom to three is exciting.  Best of luck on this transition.

xo.

I agree, we used all of those products for our second and they were life savers! Great advice.

That baby bath tub is the one I wish I had! I have a classic one, and I tell ya, everything cumbersome and awkward about the one I have would be solved with this little one.

Oh, and I love green stripes!
