Babywearing at the Christmas Tree Farm + LILLEbaby Baby Carrier Giveaway!!

On Me:  Skirt // Top c/o // Heels (old, similar) c/o // Watch c/o
On Leighton:  Leggings (similar) // Sweatshirt c/o // Poncho c/o // Shoes c/o // Bow c/o

Every time I really think it might be the last time I get to babywear, Leighton proves me wrong (thank goodness!)  This past weekend we went to Priddy Farms to check out their gorgeous selection of Christmas trees, wreaths and take some family pictures.  You might remember my last post here and here where we visited Priddy Farms in the fall when they have their pumpkin patch.  The farm was just magical with all the beautiful Christmas trees lined in rows.  They also make handmade wreaths and even have wreathmaking classes there on certain nights.  It will definitely be a family tradition of ours that we look forward to each holiday season.

It was a little chilly and was raining off and on, so Leighton wasn't too thrilled about being outside...until I pulled my LILLEbaby carrier out.  As soon as she saw it, she said "I wanna ride on mama."  Well, I knew exactly what that meant, and I was excited that she still gets so excited about being carried.  I've had a number of different LILLEbaby carriers over the last 2 years (take a trip down memory lane here, here and here), but this complete embossed LILLEbaby carrier is hands down my favorite.  Probably not the best color choice if you have a newborn who is still prone to blowouts, but with a toddler, I knew we would be safe, and I thought the white was just stunning.  To me, this carrier is the perfect combination of fashion, art and motherhood.  If I only had one word to describe it, it would probably be dreamy.  It really is a beauty. 

Leighton is about 26 months old now, so every time we babywear, I usually try to document it.  Since we were taking some family Christmas pictures, I knew this would be the perfect occasion to document.  I already get teary eyed just thinking of how I don't have any breastfeeding pictures to document our 18 month journey; I'm going to make sure I don't miss out on documenting our babywearing journey.  May I get to carry her as long as she will let me.  And hold her little hand and kiss her on the lips as long as I can.  Until she thinks she's too old and too cool for all that.  Until then, I'll cherish each moment each day.  Because everything else can wait. 

Babywearing isn't only practical, it creates such a special bond.  I miss the days already where we would babywear and she would just fall asleep in the carrier.  Those special moments are the ones I'll always remember.  It was also such a lifesaver during those first 6 months.  If we wouldn't have been babywearing, I wouldn't have gotten anything accomplished (including eating and resting lol.)  And she definitely didn't like sleeping in her rock n play.  But I knew if I put her in the carrier, there was at least a 75% chance she would be asleep within 30 minutes.  And then I could just sit there and stare at those little lips smile and twitch as she was probably dreaming about milk.  ☺  I'm so excited to have teamed up with LILLEbaby again to give away a complete embossed carrier to one lucky reader.  To enter just use the widget at the bottom of this post.  Good luck!  What is your favorite LILLEbaby carrier?  What is your favorite babywearing moment?

I love the Brilliance too but the old school green Finches Organic is my favorite :)

Katrina Burgess said...

My favorite dream lillebaby is an embossed, but we do love our airflow that we have!

Jennifer Bartle said...

All of the embossed or organics are my favorites!

Samantha Daniels said...

Navy embossed is my fav. Recently got the spot on carryon, so that's getting the be a close race, since my 2 year old feels much more secure in it.

Angie Kelly said...

This brought tears to my eyes, they grow so fast!

Amelia W said...

These pictures are SO gorgeous!!! The brilliance embossed is absolutely breathtaking! I love when my almost 5 month old daughter falls asleep in our airflow! I would love to have a beautiful embossed as our airflow is the champagne color, it was the only option at a store I had a gift card to.

Christine Fitzgerald Miralles said...

The new wovens look amazing, but in Louisiana, the airflow gets me through the summer!

Ashley Demaray said...

So cute! I love the embossed and would love to get one for my mom who watches my baby

Tabitha Wheeler said...

I'd love an embossed but the complete is my favorite. I love the zip down feature and the fact that I don't need an additional insert!

lilysnow said...

I have an airflow and I love it but I've been dreaming of an embossed so we each have one with my husband cause he loves wearing our baby but it's getting old havin to adjust the carrier back and forth between us

I love the Embossed as well :) My favorite moments are definitely the ones where I put my LO in and he kicks and squeals with excitement :)

Precious Anastasia said...

My favorite is the new candy shop woven!

Leslie Lemiesz said...

I just started using lillebaby so far using the complete airflow I think! I would love to try others

Jenny said...

I love my Airflow but the Embossed is so pretty!

pinkfallacy said...

The coral embossed is my favorite but i am curious about the new wovens ��

C Lyon said...

I've only tried the airflow, but dream of having an embossed :-) My LO loves being worn and his older sisters like to wear him too. Dread the day he outgrows baby wearing.

Mackenzi Leggett said...

Embossed!!!

Sarah Sova said...

I've been looking into getting a teal embossed but I don't even own a Lille yet! How sad :( some day my dream will come true lol

Megan B said...

I love the all season or airflow styles. So hard to choose just one!!

Jessica Cushen said...

I LOVE the teal embossed and all of the new wovens! I LOVE your outfit in this post :).

Andrea Adelman said...

I've only tried the all seasons and I love it. Been hoping to get another so that I have one to wear and one for my fiancé to wear so we don't constantly have to adjust. I've had my eye on a lavender embossed for my preemie and I (also a preemie!) or just getting a CarryOn for later. :)

I love my frosted rose all seasons!

Jessica Cross said...

I love the embossed but am dying to try the new woven ones. :)

I have too many favorites, I wish I could buy all of them lol! I love embossed and organics the most though. The new wovens looks TO DIE FOR!

Megan Luke said...

I have an airflow and really love it here in the south!

Lisa Cutshall said...

I love the organics and the new ring slings look beautiful!

Joel-Virginia Pruitt said...

I love my airflow!

Odyssey said...

I've been fortunate to have my airflow as my main carrier, which is awesome with the heat and humidity, but I lust after the embossed. My friend described it best: Like wearing a designer purse! Don't ask me to choose a color though. :D

As for my favorite moment: I think it would be after I learned to feed my baby in the carrier. I was rocking and walking with him in a dental office while my husband was getting some work done and the receptionist came up to talk to my baby without realizing what was going on. We both laughed at the baby watching her suspiciously like she was going to take away his food.

Lindsey EP said...

I am due with my first baby in April! I am actually registered for the all seasons carrier right now! I would love to win a free one for our baby girl!

Alysha Lavictoire said...

I recently bought my first Líllébaby an Airflow. My son is 12 weeks old and loves to cuddle. My Lillebaby lets me wear him around the house to get some things done while cuddling!! Have been contemplating getting a second carrier and I have heard great things about the embossed. Would love a chance to win one!!

JoB said...

I love my airflow! But the anchors carryon looks perfect for my toddler!

Taylor Palmer said...

I am loving the embossed carriers! I've never even seen these before! I would love to have one for our toddler and newborn coming soon!

lamabisca said...

i just got a Lille and I am so excited to use my complete with my newest baby.

Lucy Cantu said...

I love my airflow in our hot Texas weather!

psychedelicme said...

I am a newbie in babywearing for I am a first time mom. I've been doing my research about carriers and Lillebaby is definitely my favorite. I've been bugging hubby to get me and my boy one and telling him over and over again that lille is my dream carrier! The embossed definetly caught my attention and would be perfect for us. My son is 2 months old and i'm definitely looking forward to our babywearing journey with Lille.

Unknown said...

We have the complete but I love the embossed! Our funds just haven't allowed for getting one yet

Kelly Walls said...

I am going to be so sad when I cant wear my son anymore! It has saved my sanity and since this is my last baby (and my rainbow) I just want to have him close to me as much as possible. We have an organic that is cozy but the embossed is gorgeous!

I love my teal embossed! It's the only one I have had, so I don't know any different but it's so soft!

Anonymous said...

We love our original in black. But the embossed is so beautiful. Gorgeous photos btw!

Rose Price said...

We love our original in black. But the embossed is so beautiful. Gorgeous photos btw!

Melissa Torzon said...

My favorite is my anchors airflow. I love the mesh feeling and baby girl loves it just as much. The anchor symbolizes a lot for us but mostly that it is meant to hold something down, to keep it in place, and this momma works daily to hold down the fort and make her babies proud!

Mande Stedman said...

Love my embossed citrus, but the luxe ones are so beautiful!!

Cierra Mercer said...

I have an Airflow complete and an essentials. The airflow is my favorite for front carries, while the essentials is my go to for back carries. I have been dying to try an embossed! And one of the new woven completes! You can't go wrong with a Lille!

Erin said...

Beautiful pics! I think my favourite may be the Midnight Organic, or perhaps the new gray woven one.

Jenn T said...

We love our airflow!

Veronica Bohan said...

complete organic green meadow

Steph Selle said...

I have been eyeing up Lillebaby for a while. I'm waiting until we have a little more money saved up to buy my first one! I've heard nothing but good things about them!

Sarah Hayes said...

Ive never tried this brand but I think the woven carrier in sand dollar would be a great one to have

Lindsay Rutland said...

I love the spot on toddler carrier

Lauren G said...

I love the airflow for warm weather! And I'd love to win this embossed!

Lyn m said...

My fav . . . hum!! My good ol' workhorse stone all seasons! Can't wait get a new one for my baby#4 due in May!!

melanie said...

My favorite is my purple original. I would love to have an embossed!

Kasey said...

I have a black/grey airflow that is great and it's simple so my husband doesn't mind wearing it, but I'd love a green organic for me!

Emily F said...

I would love an embossed. I have loved the teal and grey ones.

Brenda said...

Definitely the embossed! Love how soft it is

Megan said...

I have a black Complete, which has been great, but I'd love to try something softer and lighter in color!

Joanna Reveles said...

I have a blush organic but Ive heard such great things about the embossed but just cant purchase one and with the holidays coming Id rather make my childrens Christmas special...

Betty said...

I LOVE my all seasons, then again it is my first and only Lille!

Danielle Bennett said...

I love them all, but I really want a noir embossed

Jessica said...

Well I own the teal embossed complete so I'd say that is my favorite! Very pretty! I love it! Would love to try the gray woven...never tried a woven. I also love the way the anchors airflow looks :]

Ashley O said...

I die for the Luxe Brilliance! But I also love the Spot On All Seasons 😍

Courtney said...

Love my lillebaby complete!

Jenny D said...

CRiSTiNE <3 said...

I have heart eyes for the gray woven ��

Jenn said...

I love my Airflow for the warm months!

Catherine Breech said...

I love my all seasons. I had those cheap walmart carriers that killed ur back until I discovered Lille baby. My sister has one of those cheap carriers and I would love to be able to give her a lille baby.

My LO is 15 months old and started walking at 10 months so I thought once she started walking I wouldn't get to wear her much anymore but boy was u wrong. She's still petite that she fits the narrow seat yet and when she is tired and cranky I put her up.in the carrier and she is out within minutes

Anel Winney said...

Blue LAgoon is one of my favorites ! Would love this for baby #2!

Nicole B. said...

Complete Embossed Pewter is my favorite!

Your photos are absolutely beautiful. So much love shines through in each photo! And I don't have a favorite because I love them all. :) I don't own any and every one I've ever seen has been stunning!

katie said...

I dont have one but if I could ask for one lillie, it would be a all seasons.

Lizbeth Harvey said...

I've heard nothing but raving reviews about the embossed and it's softness and with a 6 week old, that sounds very inviting! He's very clingy right now and I have an old organic LILLEbaby but it's so stiff! My two year old did let me wear him until about a year and a half. So wear your darling as long as you can! I miss wearing my 2 year old. He was so snuggly!

Mikaila Johnson said...

Embossed and wovens are gorgeous!

Amy Howard said...

Love the embossed!!!

Andi of My Beautiful Adventures said...

I love my Airflow, but it is also the only Lillebaby I have tried. The Pewter Embossed looks beautiful though! One of my favorites to dream about, especially since I've read it keeps the wearer cool.

Love the Complete Organic Powder Blue Carrier :)

Carrie Barron said...

I bought a Complete Original in stone, a couple years ago before they had so many options, and it's great. My husband and I can't see me buying another carrier. But if I ever win my choice, I would go with the embossed in teal. Thanks!

lcinden said...

The embossed line is my favorite, but I think the all seasons would be most practical. I love the cupid's arrow print!

Meagan mz said...

My favorite carrier is my embossed �� It's sooo soft and comfortable! I would never buy anything other than Lillebaby.

This picture is really sweet! I really love the organic sea glass green, but the new stripes is gorgeous too.

Chelsi said...

I have an airflow right now that we love. I really want the Unicorno Tokidoki or the teal embossed!

Samantha Carwile said...

I have an all seasons complete. My sister found it for me at Target. I sold one of my strollers we never used to purchase it. When you have six kids baby wearing becomes essential. I think the embossed is beautiful and is something I would love to have. I think it is wonderful that you are offering such a gift during this holiday season. You can tell you and your daughter love wearing. She will cherish those memories captured.

Aivy Castellanos said...

It's hard to choose a favorite since I only have one, a Tokidoki Complete All seasons, but I'm in love with all of them! I have an almost 18 months old girl and she LOVES to be carried, even my husband wears her.❤ I wish I could win one to share the LÍLLÉ love with my pregnant friend ��

CopilotWife said...

Matthews Family Journey said...

I love our Cupid's Arrow All seasons complete, but want an Embossed or Organic for the dressier occasions!! These pictures are precious!! ❤

Bobby Stark said...

My favorite Lillebaby carrier is the Pewter Embossed I use every day with my 12 month old son. He gets so excited when I put it in and pick him up.

Melissa Trayhan said...

I love the Embossed carriers. They are so beautiful, soft, floppy but not as delicate as a woven. They are so beautiful!

Hippehead said...

I love the Embossed carriers. They're gorgeous!

Lady Fountaine said...

I love the teal embossed. I have an 18 month old and a 4.5 year old. Both still enjoy being carried. My favorite babywearing memories are tandem carries when they'd hold hands over my shoulder.
