Introducing Estee V! Our Favorite Things

Corrie // February 4, 2014

Thank you to everyone for all the well wishes on the birth of our little girl, Estee (pronounced Es-tea).Β  She entered the world on January 8, weighing in at almost 8 lbs.Β  As you can imagine Mommy and Daddy are so in love and excited, but also overwhelmed with this new phase of our lives.Β  There’s no way to fully prepare for parenthood, and we have been learning along the way.Β  Needless to say, the last three weeks have been filled with joy and craziness – a total “shock” to the life we were used to. From bottles, receiving blankets, A&D ointment to sterilizers – we’ve checked the box for all the newborn essentials.Β  However in the last couple of weeks, both Estee and I have gravitated toward certain items that have made the transition easy and fun for us…for now.


The Diaper Bag: Everyone said the key to the ideal diaper bag is plenty of pocket space.Β  I needed a bag that was both functional and fashionable, and opted for the Tory Burch Stacked Logo Billy Baby Bag.Β  This bag has replaced myΒ  daily Fendi Zucca Canvas, and has been ideal for small trips to the doctors or to grandma’s house.

WubbaNub: This fun little plush pacifier was given to me by two different people before Estee was even born and both told me it was a lifesaver.Β  We have a variety of pacifiers at home from Born Free to Avent, and Estee always prefers the WubbaNub.Β  It really helps soothe her during those fussy moments.


Air Max: With Estee only a few weeks old, itsΒ  safe to assume that I’ve been pretty busy – not only adjusting to mommyhood but running around the house and the neighborhood.Β  While I love my kicks (as seen in previous posts), my go to shoe of the moment is theΒ  Nike Air Max 90 Lunar Comfort 3.0. I am a big fan of Nike Sports Wear and the Air Max 90, and love the twist Nike took with this shoe adding lunar foam and fuse to this classic model.


Minky Baby Blanket: If you haven’t heard of a Minky baby blanket from Moonbeam Minky, you should. Estee has become obsessed with these handmade, personalized blankets. With its soft and warm material, it the perfect complement to the baby room and crib.

Bella Bebe Headband: Estee looks adorable in her glittery personalized “E” headband from Bella Bebe Shop.Β  There are a variety of different colors and looks.Β  I love this shop because there are so many different designs to choose from –Β  perfect with all her outfits.


More to come as Estee and I will be spending lots of QT over the next couple of months and will have more favorite things to share.

Until Next Time,
