What in the world is a petti romper?

I’m a new mom of a 15 month year old little girl. When I stumbled across the below photo on my friend's site, I had to ask what the little girls were wearing. My friend was shocked when I had no idea what a Petti Romper was!!! I guess, it’s all the rage in the new mom world. Who would have known!?!? Obviously, not me. :)When I did an online search for “what is a petti romper” nothing came up!Well now I’m hooked... and I have to share my new finding with you.

These savvy rompers are also awesome for photo props- create a memory NOW that will last a lifetime. What a great way to enhance newborn, infant and toddler photo sessions. A definite necessity for any little girl's wardrobe. Incredibly sweet and girly, Petti Rompers are ultra comfortable. My daughter is so picky about what she wears, but LOVES jumping around in this chic romper.

Great as a gift, both Mom and little one will have a blast playing dress up!

Petti Rompers are super comfortable and can be paired with a pair with leg warmers or as we like to call them crawlers!! If you’re feeling extra saucy add a tutu, pearls, head band OR even let your little one borrow a pair of your high heels!!

Give it a try, take some pictures and cherish that moment forever.

xoxo, a friendly lion

Leg Warmers A.K.A. Crawlers

Baby leg warms or crawlers are a great invention that can be worn by crawling babies to young girls alike. They're the same leg warmers you might remember from the 80's & 90's, but with a functional twist. They're perfect for protecting little crawling knees and can be worn by both boys and girls. And since they only hit above the knees, diaper changes are a breeze.

But don't be fooled, crawlers are also an adorable alternative to tights as your baby grows into a toddler. And later can be worn as traditional leg warmers!

They come in a wide array of colors and patterns for both boys and girls. You can even get them in your favorite sports team colors!

First Photo Shoot for the Website

Here are some behind the scene photos from our first Lions & Lily Pads photo shoot last night for the website ! It was 98 degrees out! Traci Yates Photography did an amazing job and the girls were wonderful! Except for the heat I couldn't be happier with how everything went. I can't wait to get the photos back from Traci!!

The Beginning

Welcome to our crazy lives! We are two Mom's who decided to start a children's online boutique, lions & lily pads, while working full-time and raising our beautiful daughters. We specialize in handmade custom creations. And if that wasn't enough I decided let's go ahead and throw a blog in the mix to document our journey!
