  • Baby "C's" Nursery Reveal Plus Changing Table/Closet Organization

    As soon as we found out we were pregnant, we got started on the nursery! It wasn't hard to dream up the perfect vision of a little nest for baby to live and grow in.  As most of you know, Phil and I are hardly traditional so instead of a standard "boy's" room, we went with a theme of things the both of us love. Flowers, animals, vintage elements, art work, typography and calming colors. Its our idea of a perfect little gender neutral nursery! 

    Changing table organization: 

    Top- Diaper Caddy (small amount of NB diapers, hand sanitizer, wipes, diaper rash cream, powder, toy) Changing pad with cover.

    First drawer- NB sized diapers, wipes (+extras), wash cloths, socks, burp cloths, scratch mittens, pacifiers, teething tools, first aid kit for a newborn, grooming kit, breast pads, lotion, sunscreen. 

    Second Drawer- Sorted by size- short-sleeved onesies, pjs & shoes

    Third Drawer- Hooded towels, bibs/burp cloths, swaddles, receiving blankets, extra changing pad cover. 

    Clothes separated according to size/age. Small Laundry basket, "too small bin" sliding cube bins containing hats, baby carriers, toys etc. Books were giving in place of cards from friends and family.

  • 29 & 30 Week Pregnancy Update Plus DIY Nursery Mobiles, The Burlap Bag Gifts, Baby Shower Invitation and More

    How far along? 30 weeks

    Total weight gain/measurements: 128lbs. SOMEBODY had a growth spurt! 

    Maternity clothes: I had been searching for the perfect dress for my baby shower. I went on ASOS maternity and found a couple dresses that I LOVED! Because ASOS offers free return shipping, I usually order multiple items then return the "rejects". Anyways, I found the loveliest dress that fits my round body like a dream! I can't wait to wear it!! 

    Stretch marks? Not yet! I have been using sweet almond oil twice a day.

    Sleep: Its been pretty good the last couple weeks considering how big I am. Emily has been extra cuddly and basically spoons my belly every morning. Its pretty adorable. 

    Best moment this week:  Finishing the nursery mobile!! 

    Miss anything? I miss not having to pee every 15 minutes. I feel like the cold makes it even worse! 

    Movement: I wonder how much room he has in there. He seems to be flopping around all over the place! I asked my doctor what his positioning during our last appointment and he was head down! :) 

    Food cravings: Tuna (ew)

    Anything making you queasy or sick? Nothing new. Still can't stand Old Bay or popcorn (barf!!)

    Gender: My Moy Boy <3 

    Symptoms: No new symptoms. Just getting progressively round and heavy.  Ligament pain is still an issue but I ordered a belly support band so I hope that will help out! 

    Belly button in or out? FLAT. 

    Wedding rings on or off? On!

    Happy or moody most of the time: Pretty consistent. I'm getting a little overwhelmed with the millions of things left to do, but other than that, I have been happy and excited. 

    Looking forward to: Interviewing  a pediatrician tomorrow! 

    We have baby registries at Target and Amazon! (for those of you who have asked)

    I finally finishd my nursery mobile, and in the process I made an exta one that is now for sale in my etsy shop! >>CLICK HERE<<

    This is the mobile that will live in my nursery!
