What a pair! A boho Nicole Richie flashes a smile while leaving The Acorn Store in Santa Monica with 17-month-old daughter Harlow Winter Kate on Sunday.

“Harlow was so adorable and excited about playing in the store,” says an eyewitness. While the tot was busy hugging stuffed animals, the expectant mom was on the lookout for educational toys. “Nicole was amazing with Harlow and very soft-spoken and attentive,” says the shopper.

The pair left with several toys, including a magnetic tabletop easel, a doll house, and a bassinet for Harlow’s doll. Later, she even Tweeted about her score, saying, “I know @joelmadden is going to make fun of me, but I found the BEST toy store today!”

Harlow wears See Kai Run’s Dorothy Sandals ($38).

She really is starting to become such a good mix of both Joel and Nicole. I just can’t get enough of this baby! Doesn’t she seem like she would be such a fun one year old, full of personality??? Love her! 😀

@Mariasha – because there is a category called “choice celebrity baby” at the teen choice awards. there’s Seraphina, Zuma, Honor, Harlow and Adam Sandler’s child (sory i can’t remember the name.

She’a cutie!

Harlow is adorable but Nicole makes me smile. The wild child has turned into a devoted mother and family woman. She looks so serene every time I see a picture of her these days. A far cry from the tormeneted girl she was not too long ago.

I wish her and her growing family all the happpiness in the world.

I wonder how many mother try and co-ordinate (vaguely) their outfit with what their child wears? persoanlly I am just doing well if both of us are free of food marks but just curious about others…?

Harlow is precious and it is such a joy and a relief to see Nicole so happy and healthier. That being said, she needs to fix her bangs😉

I can’t wait to see how sweet the new one will be.

fuschia – my daughter and I usually end up in outfits that are fairly similar, but not really by plan. it’s just because if I’m in the mood to wear a certain style, then I am (apparently) also in the mood for her to wear that same style. so, we might both wear a striped outfit. or, like today, her outfit had brown and pink in it, and so did mine. but it wasn’t intentional, I was apparently just in the mood for brown and pink🙂

Theres a celebrity baby category?? thats…too much. Is it weird that the baby looks like lionel to me? i know they’re not biologically related but her face shape, nose reminds me him. As well as his other daughter.

@Lilian:

Yes, I realize that, but the whole category is tremendously stupid. Come on, we talk about babies here. They can’t make their choice to be in the spotlight, they should just be left alone. It is getting sort of ridiculous.

Im impessed fnhdl, kudos. I am trying to improve wardrobe co-ordination just for the toddler at present (ignore this boring fashion discussion if not your bag) by limiting the colours I buy, so that everything goes no matter how sleep deprived I am! Cannot even imagine going up teh next difficulty level to actually thinking baout what I wear.
