Bedding, bumbos, boppys, bottles, bibs OH MY!

I have officially crossed over to baby buying bonkerdome. I can't stop. It is physically impossible for me not to check or everyday. It used to be that I anxiously waited each morning for the Gilt Groupe or Hautelook sales to begin; now I can't live with the thought of my children without the adorably fantastic 100% organic alpaca onesie. I need help. There is a magnetic force and it has become my latest crack.

So my beautiful baby boys bedding has arrived. Now say that five times fast! I just love love love love it. I waited for some after Christmas sales at Layla Grace and it felt like X-mas morning all over again when it arrived on my front porch. I did a mock set up and made sure everything looked perfect. I can't wait for the nursery to be finished! The colors are a great nautical mix of blue and yellow in a seersucker print with mosaic sheets. Kind of hippy meets preppy WASP is the best way I can describe it.

Next I need to find a chaise lounge or glider but I am yet to find one I like, then I am done. On the good side I know better than to go too crazy (if that is possible) before my shower. I just have to have some of these outfits and sleepers and shoes and hats. Sometimes they actually make me cry and I find myself smelling the clothes oblivious to the sales person gaze.

When I was first married, Andy begged me to be practical...thank God I lived by my credo: 'Veni, Vidi, Visa - I came, I saw, I charged it. Hope everyone had a great weekend :)


  1. Beautiful Nursery! I like the "sailor" look to it :)

  2. I love what you have picked out Brooke! So cute! I cant wait to see the pics of the finished product! xo

  3. Hi there! Here is a list of must haves...
    1. Double snap-n-go it is so easy to load in/out of car and just snap car seats in.
    2.Twin nursing pillow if you are planning on nursing...I don't know what I would do without it
    3. Miracle blankets...we swaddled for the first 3 months and these were a lifesaver!
    4. 2 bottle warmers...we do a bedtime bottle every night and having the 2 bottle warmers save my sanity!
    5. 2 bouncy seats...I move these all over our house when I need them to play independently and safely while I need to do something
    6. at least one swing...only one of mine took to it so we gave one away already!
    7. 2 boppies...I use them on either side of the couch while nursing so that I can put the babies there when finished. I also use them for tummy time.
    8. 2 bumbos...we are using these in lieu of highchairs. We just started using them for rice cereal

    That is what I can think of so far! If I think of anything else, I'll let you know!

  4. Thanks Suzanne. I am happy to say I have all those things on my registry, if not already. Phew! I guess all those books on twins was worth it:) I appreciate the advice. You make is look so easy.

    Thanks Heather! I wish I could teleport you to VT so you could help me with paint colors. I have three on the wall and three different opinions. I think I am going with mine! definitely will post the final product.
