What I've Been Buying For My Toddler Boy #1 ♥

I've been buying some new clothes and other small things for Tyler Lee lately so I thought I would share with you all as I love seeing posts on what others have been buying for their own little ones.

This is actually a Christmas gift so I shouldn't really be showing it until November at least but I really couldn't resist. I got this adorable little handmade wooden camera with surf coloured chevron design from Fawn Over Baby. This camera had sat in my Etsy checkout for far too long so I decided Christmas was the perfect occasion to buy it for. Tyler Lee loves hanging things around his neck so I ordered this with a crisp white strap.

Tyler Lee was in need of a pair of slippers as it's colder in our house now in the mornings and downstairs is all wooden floors and tiles so I got his him his first ever pair of slippers and how adorable are these little Rudolph the Reindeer ones? I love how fluffy they are and they're super soft so they'll be perfect for his little feet. These are from Next

I picked up this hat, scarf and mittens set on a whim while I was getting the slippers but how could I resist something with stars, I simply couldn't. The boy probably has enough hats to last him until he's five but this one is pretty cute with the little bobble on top. These are his first scarf and proper little mittens too, so sweet. This set is also from Next.

I also picked up these cute little mittens for Tyler Lee as a second pair because I think he'll take a liking to chewing on his mittens, everything goes in the mouth! I'm not sure what animal these are supposed to represent but they're sweet nonetheless. These are from Penneys/Primark.

 I spotted this cloud print jumper on another blogger, Katie from Mummy Daddy Me's little girl and instantly fell in love with the print. This jumper was in the girls section but I honestly can't see why a grey jumper with clouds on it would be classed as girls only. This jumper is from Zara.

 The colder weather calls for super snuggly pyjamas and these fleece dog themed onesies from Penneys were too cute to resist. Tyler Lee loves dogs and anything with dogs on them so these were perfect for him. They have grips on the feet too to keep him from slipping and sliding on the wooden floors and tiles whilst keeping him cosy and warm.

 Tyler Lee was in need of a new pair of shoes so we got him these gorgeous Geox boot type ones. We had stupidly gotten him two pairs of Vans before this and one pair won't go on very easily and the other is way to big, the perils of children's shoe sizes! Thankfully these shoes fit great and are super stylish with all his clothes.

Halloween isn't too far away now and I want something seasonal for Tyler Lee to wear to bed. I picked up this cute bat print onesie (which is super long!) in H&M.

Did you know that I have a slight leggings obsession? I seriously can't resist them and I love these two in exclusive prints from Urban Mum Shop all the way from Australia. I seriously can't get enough of the crown print, however, the pair with the crosses has been washed once and look at the awful wash wear! I'm really unhappy with this as these are supposed to be black and were washed on a 30 degrees delicate wash, not impressed.

I've also been stocking up my boys little library with some new books in a Halloween and autumn theme. You can read about the books featured above here and about the first lot I bought him here. I've now also started buying winter and Christmas themed books for something special I'm putting together for him, more about that in a future post.

This sweet little Snowdog plush by Rainbow Designs* is going to be part of Tyler Lee's Christmas Eve basket. It'll go perfect with the musical Snowman we got him last year. You can find the Snowdog here.

This beautiful Rachel Riley duffle coat was such an amazing find. I fell in love with the sea foam colour and the lining is beautiful with it's quilted gold fabric. This coat was such a bargain too reduced from £154 to just £54! This coat is sadly too big for this winter but I think it'll be perfect for my boy next winter. This is from Ruby and Kitty.

Have you been buying anything new for your little ones lately? Do leave links to your buy posts if you have any, it's great to see what others are buying to get inspiration from.

  3. My previous note didn't show up!

    I love the reindeer booties!

    Better a wooden camera than a real 'toy' one. My nephews had one of those.

    Took some really questionable photos. You know, the type when you're not aware (these types of photos aren't allowed as you get older ;-)

    Double chin? Only if I look down at the wrong angle. Naturally. ;-)
