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?

  4. 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.

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

    ReplyDelete
  6. 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.

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

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

  21. 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. :)

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

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love the organics and the new ring slings look beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  28. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  29. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  30. 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!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. 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.

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

    ReplyDelete
  37. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  42. 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!

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

    ReplyDelete
  44. 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!

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

  62. I love my Airflow for the warm months!

    ReplyDelete
  63. 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

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

    ReplyDelete

  70. 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!

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

    ReplyDelete
  72. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Embossed and wovens are gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Definitely the embossed! These pictures are TOO cute!!!

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.

    ReplyDelete
  116. 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 ��
