FABULOUS MOM FRIDAY: Lil' LJ {GIVEAWAY}

This week's fabulous mom is Loree of Lil' LJ.  She's also the first sponsor here on AFOMFT but that's not why I picked her.  Like me, Loree is a mom of twin girls who were born prematurely and she's turned her experiences as a parent into a really amazing company.

Lil' LJ was originally inspired by Loree's struggle to get pregnant. After her adorable twins were born, she wanted the world to know just how special they were so she put her design skills to use creating baby clothing with a message.  I love that everything about the business ties back to Loree's family.  Even the name comes from a nickname her husband gave their future little one - Little Loree Junior, or Lil' LJ!



And while the story behind Lil LJ is cute, the clothes are even cuter. Take a look!



The Chunky Monkey tee is one of my favorites and the Answered Prayer design is from the "Worth the Wait" line created for babies whose parents went through infertility.  Remember that I mentioned Loree's little ones were born early?  That led her to create some designs for preemies:





All of the shirts from Lil' LJ can be personalized with a name and birthdate and the NICU Graduate tee is especially great because you can add the name of the hospital the baby was at with their last name and graduation year on the back.  I'm going to get two of these for Gabrielle and Alaina to wear to their NICU reunion next year!

Lil' LJ also features the fun "Lil' Series" which includes everything from Lil' Cowboy and Cowgirl to Lil' Monster tees.  I should get Lil' Peanut and Lil' Snugglebug for Gaby and Alaina since those were their nicknames when they were babies.  I also love these:


There are so many more adorable designs at Lil' LJ that I could go on and on.  But since the holidays are coming, I'll leave you with one more. 



How cute is that?  I love that the ornament is personalized - this onesie would be perfect for holiday pictures!

And speaking of holidays, Lil' LJ designs make great gifts.  And easy ones too - look at how adorable the packaging is!



I'm sure it's no surprise that I'm putting these on the AFOMFT Holiday Must Have List.  What could be better than a lil' something for your favorite lil' one from Lil' LJ
