So the time is getting close. I am feeling more and more ready (haha well, are you ever really ready?). I feel like we have all the details taken care of, all the “stuff” is here, washed and ready to go. It’ scattered about our apartment and some of the stuff is just too darn cute to not share. I can’t wait till it is all in use!
All her burp clothes, swaddling blankets, wash clothes, towel, etc.. are all washed & folded. Do you see some familiar fabric? The lovely Megan Nielsen made me a super cute baby kit with the extra fabric from my Maternity dress.
Kev and I are really not into all the patterned everything that is out there for babies. For blankets and things it’s one thing but for car seats, strollers, bouncers it’s just too much for us. We went with mostly black for all those kind of things. We really love everything we got and will work well for future boys or girls. We got the Chicco Keyfit 30 Carseat because it had good ratings and it was compatible with our stroller. This cute little white knitted blanket that is on the car seat is what my Mom and Dad had me wrapped in when I came home from the hospital. My mom gave it to me a little while ago and our little girl will be brought home in the same blanket. So special.
I am not a crazy wooden toy lady or anything but I do really like them. There are so many toys out there now a days and I feel like they take half the fun away of being a kid and exploring and using your imagination. They do everything for you. I love the basic sort of toys. Thats just me though. I know we will end up with both but for now we have some super cute Haba Toys for her and a crazy awesome alligator from Punky and Adam.
Have you been over to Blabla? They have the cutest, softest, most adorable dolls and rattles ever. I got a few things from there and I am pretty sure I will be getting a whole heck of a lot more. Love things knitted items!!
So I searched forever to figure out what kind of baby bouncer seat to get. There are so many out there and so many just dripping in ridiculousness. They were just not for Kev and I. I was debating getting one of the Bloom Rockers but I really wanted something that would travel with us. We travel a lot. So I decided on the Baby Bjorn Chair instead and we couldn’t be happier. It’s super easy to fold up flat when we are off to Grammy’s house.
We also have a few different kinds of cloth diapers to try out before we decided what brand we are going to use. Aren’t the colors so pretty?
Last but not least… I could take pictures of baby clothes all day but I just had to share these 2 I got yesterday. I have mentioned on more than one occasion Kev and I’s love of “hooded sweatshirt” walks. I think one of the things we are most looking forward to when the baby comes is going for these walks together as a family when she is here. Making homemade hot chocolate, bundling up and going out for our late night walks. I was at carters yesterday and I found this double lined fleece hooded little sleeper. It will be her own hooded sweatshirt to wear on these walks with us. Ahhh it is so cute and so soft. WE CAN NOT WAIT!!! Also, this little bathing suit was in the clearance rack at gymboree, too cute to pass up. I love the big coral bows on the shoulders. FL here we come!!
ahh why is all baby stuff so freakin’ cute? Alright little girl come on out and play!!
