Happy start to the week, everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
David has been out of town for the last week so Ryan and I spent a ton of amazing quality time together. On Friday night, we had my nieces (ages 6 and 9) spend the night…making Ryan’s life complete. He is completely obsessed with those girls and they are so sweet to him and so maternal. At one point while the three kids were playing and I said, “Okay, Alex and Cam. You seem to have this covered so I’ll be back in a few hours.” They both whipped their heads around and responded, “Really?!”
My mom ended up coming over to help so the night went pretty darn perfectly. I am always surprised that Ryan is so willing to go right up for bath and bedtime when the girls are here. He never resists or tries to delay bedtime, even when he knows that other people are still awake in the house. I guess being a cuckoo-crazy schedule-obsessed mom has its’ benefits.
The following day, I was able to spend a bit of time in the future nursery. Our friends at California Closets are coming out this week to measure for an organization system in her little walk-in. I did this with Ry’s closet before he was born and it helped me feel unbelievably prepared and organized when he arrived…and it continues to do so. Cute little rompers, moccasins and stuffed animals have been slowly making their way into the room but we have zero furniture for her yet and no closet set up so everything is laying in disorganized piles on the floor. It’s making me insane! It’s crunch time and I really need to start feeling more prepared for her arrival.
Speaking of adorable little things…I wanted to share some of the pieces that I have purchased for this little one. You’ll see that I am all over the place when it comes to style for her and I was the same way with Ryan. Initially, I saw myself dressing her in very little pink but now I’ve fallen for beautiful blush tones. I also didn’t think that she would have any florals in her little wardrobe but I keep finding sweet little bohemian style ropers and dresses and they are too cute to resist. Because I tend not to dress super “girly” in general, I imagined that she wouldn’t either. That’s not to say that I am not equally as excited to dress her in Ryan’s black or gray hand me downs and throw little black Converse on her feet. With Ryan, it took me a while before I finally settled on more of a style (which sounds incredibly silly, I realize) and it was eventually based on his personality. I’m sure the same thing will happen with this little monkey as well.
Here are some of the pieces that I have found for baby girl…most of them were found at Nordstrom, Target and H&M. It’s so nice because these stores offer such different price points.
