5 unique gifts for a Baby Shower

Boys have a Passion for Fashion too!

No matter what department store you walk into, there is no doubt that girls control the majority of the “cute baby clothes” market. Pink dresses, frills, lace and adorable sayings are pretty much the most common things hanging on shopping racks. Having a son, I was really concerned with finding fashion that I was proud […]

I think I will miss it.

When I got pregnant I was probably the grumpiest blogger on the planet. Ok, so I was. I can freely admit it. Not only was I having marriage problems (since resolved, Amen), but I had really resigned myself to the fact that I was happy with one child and enjoying my “sleeping through the night/vacation […]

Tommee Tippee Bottles

Before Baby P was born, I was scrambling on baby brands. I really had no idea, and I mean NO IDEA, on what to buy. Wandering around at Babies R Us was like a kid in a candy store for me. “Ooh this, no this, yes this!” Bright products EVERYWHERE. I had to rely a […]

I finally bought a diaper bag!

This morning  I was reminded that I am indeed pregnant. Not that the baby and the belly don’t do that on a daily basis, but things started to get a little, lets just say… “gross ” and I was like…”oh, I think I may actually end up at the hospital at some point”. If you […]

I have reached the worst stage of pregnancy….I call it…

“Cannot see or shave my bikini line” , otherwise known  as “1970’s pornstar” stage. Not that I am wearing a bikini right now, but seriously the option— completely out the window. I can’t move my stomach to the side or suck in……at ALL. Its like one big hard ball of baby that is inconsiderately not […]

101 Days to Baby…which room should be the nursery?

I think when you are trying to figure out what theme to do a nursery in, part of that really depends on what colors you ultimately go with and what room you start to even design in. For us, we first had to evaluate the space in our home. What room would be his? We […]
