Something about this time change has us getting ready for bed much earlier than we were a week ago. We eat dinner at the same time, but now that it is dark, things have changed. Instead of heading out to play or go on an evening walk, it’s time to get in our pajamas to play together as a family and then snuggle together to read books. I love reading with my kids and treasure any moment where I can get them to sit still, slow down, & cuddle with me. Today, I’m sharing some of my favorite book and pajama picks for little ones right now.

And now, you can’t talk about bedtime without talking about fun pajamas for little ones. We are grateful that Abby has several hand-me-downs between her older brothers & some close friends of ours, but each season I search for a few new pairs of adorable and snuggly pajamas for my kids. My latest pick for Abby this fall was the Party Owls pajama set found in online shop, Shop Sugar Bit. I thought this fun owl print, from Hatley, was the perfect new set to add to her pajama collection. The pajamas are super soft, cute, and perfect for my little night owl!
