Boy Obsessed

There are things you need for babies. Like diapers, clothes, blankets, a warm place to sleep...and then there are things you don't need for babies, but want.

Since I'm having a baby in four months, I have not been able to stop looking at cute little adorable baby items. It's a new interest for me. Trust me: my mom used to try and drag me to second hand baby stores to shop for my sister's two children and after five minutes I would start complaining of boredom.

But now I just can't wait to dress/feed/swathe/entertain my baby with a cute assortment of age-appropriate items. Even through my husband and I have not yet bought a single thing, my amazon wish list and etsy favorites are overflowing with potential buys.

I seem to have an obsession with whales and foxes and hedgehogs. Also, thanks to all the shops that gave me permission to post pictures of their items here! The items are also linked below each picture.

I wonder what stuff I will eventually buy? A lot of what I need, of course, and I'm sure a few pleasure items as well.

Aw, so cute! :) Whales and foxes and hedgehogs are adorable. We know a couple who had a baby named Jonah, so of course they were gifted with an abundance of cute whale items. I enjoy looking for things for my niece to a certain extent, but not quite as much as my mom does...must be a grandma thing. :) I'm sure it'll be different if I have kids of my own!

I love that baby wrap! I have a plain white one. I'm feeling inspired to dye/ tie dye it somehow now. If you want to make your own, all you need is five yards of jersey knit fabric. You just cut it into thirds, no sewing required, because jersey doesn't unravel. The jersey knit I bought was wide enough to make three, so I kept one and gave two away. I'm not sure if all jersey knit comes in the same width.

I've always loved looking at baby things. Angel and I have had a fun time shopping for my two cousins and our nephew who have been born since we got married. I know when we have kids, though, I'm going to try to hold back my own shopping quite severely because our huge families are a recipe for too many gifts. :P

that is a good idea!! perhaps I will try it :P probably a lot cheaper and more fun!

BTW, I went ahead and dyed it: green, auqamarine, teal, and blue. It's much more fun now. And I measured it in case you decide to make one, it's 20 inches wide.
