|Sweet babe is only 5 weeks away, and I am so excited that we finally have a finished little space for her. Though I knew the general idea of what style I wanted, finding all the right pieces took some time. I wanted this space to feel simple, modern and a little bohemian. The room was originally beige and I tried to make it work, but it just didn't have the clean look I wanted. So we painted the walls, and that made the whole room feel completely different. We went with white for all of the furniture pieces as well, then layered on the colors to brighten it up.|
|We filled the rest of the space with baskets, books, and plants as well as a few little toys. I'm sure as she starts to crawl we will definitely make a few changes, but I cant wait to see how it all evolves and our little one grows.|

As we are anxiously awaiting our little one, I have had so much fun learning about all of the great products out there. It can be overwhelming to not want to buy everything, especially after talking to other moms. We have 13 weeks until her arrival so I am working to find some sweet items that will be useful for a newborn.
1. Natural Pacifier - After reading of all the dangerous materials in regular pacifiers, I am so thankful for these natural rubber ones from EcoPiggy. I've heard it is a good idea to get wait until baby gets the hang of breastfeeding, but if we end up needing one, these look awesome.
2 & 3. Moses Basket and Stand - Instead of the bulky basinets or pack 'n' plays, we opted for something a little smaller that fits our space well, especially our tiny bedroom. These generally run for over $100 but I am excited to say I found one that was barely used on Craigslist for a great price. Woo hoo! I also ordered a custom mattress and sheet from Wendy Ann.
4. Swaddle Blankets - How cute is this cacti print!? These are organic cotton and oh so adorable. We are having a Summer baby, so hopefully this will keep him or her feeling nice and safe without being too hot.
5. Sheepskin Rug - Okay, this one probably isn't actually a "must have" but I just really love them and I think it will be fun to have.
6. Humidifier - From all that I have read about congestion in little babies, humidifiers seem like a must have. This one so pretty, and has gotten great reviews. I cant wait to give it a try.
And, of course, this is not an all inclusive list... but definitely a pretty one! What newborn items did you find useful in the first weeks?
|I have been waiting patiently to start getting this sweet little room together. I knew, regardless of gender, I wanted to keep this space simple and modern. I shared a little bit of my nursery plans a few weeks ago, but now things are starting to feel real. This room was functioning as a guest space, so we cleared it our over the weekend and gave it a good scrub. I have found myself sitting in here daydreaming about exactly how we plan to arrange it and what pieces we will use.|
|Towards the end of every December, my favorite thing to do is start looking for a new calendar. This year I decided to go a different route and create my own. Want one for your home or office? Click the link below to download. And if you do, I would love to see a photo of it it in your home! |
