Some new things for baby and me

Hello! I thought I would share with y’all some things that I have gotten so far for baby and me! Being a first time momma, I have no clue what I will need. I do know that some of these may not make a “necessity” list but they sure do make the “pretty, sweet things” list! There’s just so much out there for new moms and babies that it is hard to not go overboard and I am trying to mix the necessity list with pretty and sweet so I can have the best of both 🙂

I’m trying to stay neutral with all everything I buy because I just love how calming and sweet it all is. Also, I can keep all the things in case we have another baby in the future! That’s pretty cost effective, right?! Below are some photos of the sweet things I have collected so far and I’ll link it all down at the bottom if you are interested in checking some of the items out for yourself!

One of my favorite items above are the birth affirmation cards that have special meaning to me. I asked Ashley Bunten with Ashley Bunten Design to make them for me and they turned out perfect! I chose the verses and quotes I wanted and Ashley laid them out perfectly with her watercolor greenery wreath design. I cannot wait to read these to myself as time gets closer and to have them read to me as I am in labor with my sweet baby boy!

I have a list of other items that I either need or want before baby gets here that I am hoping to show you soon! But for now, below is a list of the items pictured above. Maybe one day I will do a review on some of the things above!

Diaper Bag | Fawn Design Original in Black

Baby Wrap | AJJ x Solly Baby

One more thing I want to show you is this letter board. I have a larger one already, but I thought it would be so sweet to have a smaller sized one to keep in the nursery and to also showcase in weekly and monthly growth photos of baby! The one I have is the Letterfolk in The Poet Oak and I’ve already been playing around with it…

Ten of my favorite baby cribs

Land of Nod – Springwood Crib

Hello! I’ve been doing a lot of research on what crib to get for my sweet baby’s nursery and thought I would share ten of my favorite baby cribs! Not all of them were heavily considered, but I did love them all for one reason or another! White is usually my go-to because it can be used in just about any style nursery with any color or decor you have planned out. So that makes it easier to use later on if considering another sweet baby and another differently styled nursery in the future. Although I love white, I have included a few other cribs that are a different color than white, one is even a sweet metal crib that looks vintage!

 

I didn’t pick my crib out and order it until we found out that we are having a baby boy! There are a couple spindle cribs I was considering if we were having a girl, but I just didn’t feel like those would be the best fit for my boy nursery (even though the nursery itself will be pretty neutral). I added the mint colored crib to my list because I just think it is the prettiest thing ever! Would I ever order a mint colored crib? Probably not! But only because I have a fear of commitment with color… but I would love to see it in someone else’s nursery! It is such a sweet color 🙂

I also love the Springwood Crib from Land of Nod that’s on my list (pictured above)! If I had a slightly larger budget that may have been the crib I would have picked out. Most of the wood cribs I see are the darker, espresso colored brown. The Springwood Crib is the perfect shade and I would have loved to have it! Before I chose white, I originally wanted a pretty colored wooden crib, just didn’t realize how hard that would be to find. I do love the crib we chose, though! Cannot wait to show you “the One”!
