All things baby

posted on: 6.29.2010

I'm so excited to finally share that my sister in law, Eve, is pregnant! 
This will be the 9th grandkid on the Horsley side, and the first for Eve and Matt.

For Eve, and all my other pregnant friends, here are some of my favorite items, stores, and sources for all things baby.

1. Some Favorite baby clothes:

tea, for great knits and graphic rompers

petite bateau, for adorable onesies

No one does it better than Misha Lulu for dresses, in my opinion.
Because they are cut wide, Tate can still wear her 12 month dresses as tunics, so they last forever.
(and I'm sorry, I only know girl)

Some other favorites are: Caramel Baby, Olive Juice, and Flora & Henri (when grandma is buying:)
I'm also not opposed at all to shopping at Target or Old Navy, but I'm assuming everyone knows about those spots.

2. Favorite Baby toys:

Like I've said before, I really don't think there is a better toy store than Romp online. You can't go wrong with anything there.

Sophie the Giraffe is a must have classic.
 It's soft, squishy, squeaky- all those things babies like.

littlealouette, on etsy also has really fun wooden teethers.

Any other suggestions or specific toys?

3. Favorite Baby Books:
Books are wonderful, so it's hard to go wrong there. There are so many great ones. Here are just a few of my many favorites...

Anything Mo Willems will be fun for them to look at, and funny for you to read.

Sweet and simple and beautiful.

Counting with Wayne Thiebaud- my personal favorite.
If you can't find it locally, it's online at Romp.

4. Favorite Baby blogs:

 I've been reading this one for a long time and it's always been the most refreshing. Irene always features wonderful new brands, and fun mom stories to read. 

A great source for nursery artwork, childrens books, and perspective.

A great blog to find information on all that "gear". You can search things like strollers, carseats, cribs and find lots of useful information and ratings from other moms.

and please, please tell me if you're a mom or grandma to babies or toddlers you are signed up and checking The Mini Social for all their great daily deals?
It is a must. Email me if you'd like an invitation.

And, I'd love to hear... what are some of your favorite's?

    3) I CANNOT wait to see you and Tate. I can't even sleep at night.
    4) I saw Eclipse last night- might be my favorite yet.
