Where will baby sleep?

Even though we have a nursery all set up (and ready to reveal, soon!) for our little man, we decided that we want him to sleep in our room for the first few months. We figure it will make those nighttime feedings much more do-able, plus I am sure we'll just want to know he is okay throughout the night.

So in my crazy nesting mode, I carved out a little space for his cradle and a rocker to soothe him back to sleep. I wanted to keep the space minimalistic, since it is only temporary, but also wanted to add a little bit of magic to it since it's where he'll sleep during his first sleeps out in the world. I added a beautiful handmade tapestry from Etsy that has some gold flecks in it, gold stars from West Elm & a quirky piece of artwork that Matt and I picked up traveling upstate to make the space feel like his own.

Where did your little one sleep? I'd love to hear all of your experiences!


My Fox Themed Baby Shower!

My mom and my two cousins threw me a beautiful baby shower this past weekend, so of course I had to share some photos! My cousin Lauren put so much heart into it, I felt like she had me completely in-mind for every little touch she added. I am usually not super emotional, but I was so overwhelmed with how much time and thought they put into it, that I started to cry when I walked in! *pregnancy hormones*

They said that they chose polka dots because they've been my favorite for my entire life, and after they saw the nursery they added on the foxes to the theme! They served cute brunch food (bagels, a froyo bar, lite bites) and then the most adorable dessert table. You bet your ass I tried every single one of the desserts, especially after finding out I don't have GD! I'm sorry for the overload of photos, but there were far too many to cut it completely down!

My cousin Lauren, the party planner! I wore this adorable maternity dress from ASOS. I loved this one and this one as well, and knew I wanted to wear some kind of sequins!

My best friend Alex flew in from Florida, and we spent the morning making flower crowns. Of course we had to make one for Claudie girl as well!

My cousin Karen used my instagram to make this adorable week-to-week display!

Karen is pregnant also (and giving birth next week!!!!) so it was adorable having these two little guys in the same room to celebrate. We'll have to show them this picture when they are born.

It was so nice having all of my cousins there. We got married in Florida, so a ton of them couldn't make it to my bridal shower (it was more friends) but now that we live up here, I get to have my family by my side for everything.

Matt came at the end with some of the husbands to eat dessert. All-in-all it was a beautiful, perfect day! We're so excited by how loved our baby already is, and even more excited to meet him now!
