Edith’s Room…

I have been a little obsessed with Montessori style bedrooms so I have been getting inspired by these rooms: 1, 2, 3, 4

Lovin’ Young House Love…

If you haven’t check out this blog yet then you should get on it already, but beware it may consume hours of your life.  Lately I have been checking out their DIY projects for Clara and now I want to make Edith this doll house, kitchen and latch board.


I was checking out Zulily this morning and found that gDiapers AND Zutano are both of sale there right now! Of course I ended up ordering a few Zutano sunhats for Edith because they are honestly the best sunhats ever however make sure you order a size up they seem to run a little small (or Edith just has a big head).

Pinterest: I usually do most of my pinning over on my RWT boards but I have been making an effort to pin on our NF boards so check them out!

Elena has a great post on maintaining a relationship with your partner while having a new baby.

Cloth Diapering…
We have been having a great debate over what to do with cloth diapering (more on that in another post) but here is a good post on cloth diapering on a budget.

Dressing Mom…
I’m all about lounge wear but I could sure use these tips to make myself look a little more put together.

Blog Post I Wish I had Read…
We have long past the Fourth Trimester but I wish had read this post back when Edith was born.

We are leaning towards the Montessori philosophy and I just came across this blog and this great post on Montessori for infants and toddlers.

Food For Thought…

 Do you ever find yourself asking –> Why Is Everyone Always Giving My Kid Junk Food?


I love (most) of these mommy-daughter date ideas, especially the baking together, stargazing and girls night out. Have a little boy? Here are some mommy-son date ideas.

Just because your married and have children doesn’t mean you can’t still have date nights, here are 10 Unique Ideas .

Stay Calm and Parent On…

This is such a great post on ways to be a patient parent. My favorite tips are #3, 5, 6, 14, 21 and of course 25.

Babywearing Fashion…

I still haven’t mastered looking cute like this while wearing a skirt or dress and babywearing.

Check out my Monday links on RWT.

I am already wishing it was October so I could make these DIY onesies.

Since I love to show off Edith’s cloth diapers she lives in baby legs when we are at home so it would be great to make our own.

It’s too late for this but maybe IF (big if) we decide to go for round two we have to try this …or we need to become newborn photographers.

Have too many old t-shirts that you don’t know what to do with? Why not make them into rompers?

I am dying to make Edith a little kitchen of her own for her birthday and have been looking for inspiration here is one I found recently.

Home remedies…

I love this reflexology guide to your babies feet (or your own really).


I am in love with this beautiful photo.

Active Family…

I am lusting after this bike contraption– where can I get one?!?


The top 100 children’s books– how many have you read? I have read 8 out of the top 10.

today I looked for some tips on overnight cloth diapering and in the end I think we will stick with disposables so I decided to order a bundle of these ones from Honest and used promo code BLOOMSPOT40 to get 5 packs of diapers and 4 packs of wipes for $48- good deal eh? (p.s. I am probably will cancel after this order)

things i’ve been pinning

this ridiculously cute mouse and

this bunny sweater and these little pants.

Oh and I want one of each of these bibs

and I aspire to be as fashionable as this lovely mama.

And although we don’t celebrate Easter around here we do celebrate Spring and I am loving all of these sugar-free gift ideas

What we did this weekend….

We started our weekend with a trip to Posh Baby to look at a light weight stroller and ended up going home with this one. Then we went dinner at Verde Cocina where Edith inhaled homemade corn tortillas and guacamole (and got angry when it was all gone).
Saturday we took a little jaunt to Washington to pick up a few new cloth diapers at Cotton Babies. Then we headed over to Mississippi to pick up some coffee beans at Mr. Green Beans  and sampled some food carts including Wolf & Bear’s and Homegrown Smoker
Oh and Saturday night we bought a new car.
Sunday we had plans to go to Forest Park and do a little hiking but ended up at OMSI and Hair of The Dog due to the rain.
We also had to deal with a very unhappy teething baby this weekend so a trip to Barista on our way home on Sunday was a must.

Baby Things…

We love to babywear and this is our newest favorite: ErgoBaby Stowaway
Edith is teething hardcore right now so I’ve been doing a lot of Googling about teething and found this chart which I love.


I’d love to create this tee-pee for Edith when she gets a little older.
Another thing for when she gets a little bit older but seasonal sensory tubs like this fall one.
One day when I buy myself a sewing machine I’d love to make things like these little upcycled leggings.

For the future…
I have fallen in love with this blog and I am saving posts away to read when I have a minute. Currently this post on Three Levels of Obedience is a favorite.
