Most mommies will tell you they never knew how much they could love until they became a mother.  It's like cupid drew back his bow on your baby's birthday and your heart has never been the same.  We searched high and low to find the perfect gifts to express your love this Valentine's Day.   ValentineHere are the top Fancy that Friday picks that really buttered our biscuits.  Aren't you glad we're friends!?!? Fancy That Friday Button Bigger(1)What could be sweeter than a musical serenade from your favorite little Valentine?  Give them what they need to sing you a love song; with the Wolfgang Amadeus Jr. Piano or this Schoenhut Pink String Acoustic Guitar you can't possibly go wrong.  (that is as long as you buy yourself a pair of earplugs.) a1To keep your sweethearts little piggies looking their Valentine's best why not try on these for size? For the cold weathered darlings we find the Unisex Red Wellies by Joules or a perfect pink pair of Hunter Rain Boots simply divine.  For those of you lucky enough to sport little piggies in warm sunshine, you might find Hoy Shoe 'Surfer' Sandal in Red (saltwater sandals) or a vibrant pink girls Jack Rogers Sandals  more suitable. a2Nothing tells your skin I love you like cashmere; so  to keep your little ones paws warm this February 14th try slipping on these Portalano Cashmere Heart's Mittens or J.Crew's Navy and Red Striped Cashmere Mittens. a3Of course, who wouldn't want to spend Valentine's Day getting sun kissed?  Make sure your bonnet wearing beach babes are dressed in style with Florence Eiseman's Heart One Piece or  Funtastia Too Red Seersucker Trunks with Crab Applique. {picture via. Best Dressed Child}. pinkswimsuit bestdressedchild_2269_78854143           For a gift that evokes nostalgia and joy deep in our hearts we just can't resist the classics.  Music makes memories forever, and your little loves will likely have the tune of these toys engrained in their memories for a lifetime.  Reed & Barton Ballerina Music Box and Land of Nod: Monkey in the Box jack-the-monkey-in-the-box NMZ126K_mx             We know you are on top of having that perfect T.B.B.C.

When we spotted Nathaniel Paul Richmond in our Nantucket Navy Corduroy Jack Keene Jon Jon we all agreed, we were staring at style.  Dashing & debonair- no doubt!

 

We love how his stylist personalized his Jack Keene Jon Jon with Keeneland Khaki thread- such a classic and gentleman- like combination.  And his hat and knee socks are the definition of dapper!   But before we get too carried away, everyone knows it’s always the person in the clothes who ultimately communicates style.  With his happy spirit, adorable hair, and precious little face, we had to give Mr. Richmond a call and discover the man behind the Jon Jon.  Here’s what we learned:

 If you were to search my desk; my sophisticated baby stationary would certainly be adorned with the monogram nRp. 

 

 People who know me well call me: Nano

 

My greatest accomplishment to date is:

Climbing on top of my rocking chair to steal a paci from my crib. (Don't worry Mom, my balancing skills are really advanced.)

 

If you looked under my bed you might find: 

My paci stash. My mom is convinced I have several hiding spots. What's a fella to do when his mom designates bedtime as the only paci appropriate time of day?

 

 The best thing about Christmas was: 

My new ambulance just like my dad works on!! I also enjoyed taking all the ornaments off the tree.

 

 My favorite thing to pull out of my mommy's closet is:

  Her slippers; they're pretty comfy.

 

 Currently on my bedroom floor is: 

Blankies. I thought I should empty my blanket drawer while mom was doing laundry.

 

 Mommy has used me as an excuse to buy: 

I'm pretty sure she uses me as an excuse to buy everything; I obviously need a lot.

 

 My most memorable mess was:

The first time I figured out where the Tupperware was.  Boy was that super fun! Especially for mom; she seemed pretty excited to stack it all back together.

 

 I really get excited when:

 My Mimi or YaYa give me things my mom doesn't let me have! Ice cream and cookies apparently don't exist at my house.

 

 I would describe my style as:

 Sweet, southern, and preppy! My mom always tells people she likes to dress babies as babies.

I wear a lot of bubbles, smocks and monograms just like my Nantucket Navy Jack Keene Jon Jon. !photo 2Well Nathaniel, it was certainly our pleasure getting to know you. MWAH!!!!! - T.B.B.C.

Fancy That Friday Button Bigger(1)

Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and on this holiday dedicated to love;  we just had to talk about two of the things we Love the  most.......Books and Beaufort Bonnet fashion!!!  5d4070f4b25e146cfb189acb016baf43one.plant a kissPlant a Kiss is a clever and darling little read.  With it's rhyming story, charismatic characters and sparkles......we're pretty sure you'll fall head over heels for this story. Of course who wouldn't want to plant a kiss on a baby wrapped in our Richmond Red Sweet Bow Swaddle?!!!Beaufort-106 two. dayitrainedheartsThe Day it Rained Hearts is a whimsical little Valentine's day tale that will shower you with delight.  Little Cornelia Augusta finds the perfect friends to send the hearts she catches from the sky.  (with a name like that we're pretty sure she's from the south) The only way we could love this book more would be to see sweet little Cornelia sporting a Valentine's Day Beaufort Bonnet instead of her yellow rain hat. Beaufort-1three.

Cat Dog

This cute story is more about making a friend than falling in love- but that's close enough- right?  Everywhere they go, the dog bullies the cat and the cat teases the dog. The dog and cat's personalities combined with dialogue offer a fun explanation for why cats and dogs chase each other. Finally, they bond over digging up bones and a true friendship is born. Does your home have a similar story of it's own? (You know, the cat and dog children currently running across your white rug throwing juice at eachother?)  If so, an illustrator would probably draw your little Valentines in a Richmond Red Corduroy Juliet Jumper  and a Richmond Red Corduroy Jack Keene Jon Jon.

four.

5127MC4GS7LOh Silly Tilly lives up to her name in this story when she has a feeling today is a special day but forgets why.  See what clues help her discover that it's actually Valentine's Day!  This series is great for your preschool age children who will giggle and grin as this amusing story unfolds.

I'm sure Silly Tilly would have felt a bit better about her day if she had been wrapped in a monogrammed pink Queen of Cashmere Crew Neck Cardigan.  Yes she would have been toasty warm while out in the cold snow and been stylish to boot!

Beaufort-45

five. the-valentine-bears-imageThe Valentine's Bears.  You really can't get more classic than Eve Bunting and Jan Brett when it comes to children's literature.  Poor Mr. and Mrs. Bear always miss Valentine's Day as they hibernate the winter away in their cave.  This year Mrs. Bear has a special surprise up her fur!  Detailed black and white pictures show wonderful winter scenes with pops of red color bouncing off the pages to give you a true Valentine's Day feel.  The story is a bit text heavy for younger readers but it's illustrations lend to a wonderful picture walk as well!

Of course, if it were up to us we may have had the loving bears decked out in something a little more special for their first Valentine's Day.  Like a Worth Ave. White Beaufort Bucket for Mr. Bear; and a Plantation Pink Corduroy Beaufort Bonnet for Mrs. Bear.  Both monogrammed in red of course!

I know that's five but.... one more little suggestion... because Olive you!

olive-you-other-valentine-knock-jokes-youll-katy-hall-paperback-cover-artOlive You will give everyone in the family a loving laugh this Valentine's Day.  Children's funny bones will be tickled pink as you read through this lift the flap knock knock book.  Lighthearted and loving, these short words of laughter will make them smile for years to come.

We can just hear you funny mommies asking your children now:
