Peas and Carrots

"We go together like peas and carrots." That is one of our favorite quotes from the movie Forest  Gump and once I saw this green and orange onesie I knew we had to get it. I didn't purchase very many newborn outfits because I didn't know how big Wade would be, but I knew I had to get this in newborn size even if he wore it just once. We're going on a month now and he still fits into it. (Although now it's getting a little tight and his hands don't fit into the mittens anymore.) I'm tempted to buy a six month onesie if they still have it

While he was still-a week-old we did a little photo shoot with the Chevron quilt that I made for him. I probably took 100 photos but he was just so stinking cute I couldn't help it.

Coffee & Donuts--Pregnancy Photoshoot

My little sister took some photos for Kyle and I to document the "fun parts" of being pregnant. We took them when I was 32 weeks. I did not want to remember being too pregnant, but we did want some pictures together. Since I loved eating donuts while growing this child and I didn't really give up my Starbucks addiction... so we thought a little Coffee & Donuts themed photo shoot would be perfect.

Baby Recliner

Everyone needs a rocking chair for their newborn. Whether it's a wood one or an heirloom or a nice lazy boy it's a necessity to rock your baby to sleep AND keep comfortable. We looked at a couple local furniture stores and just couldn't find the right one for us we also checked out IKEA to find something but there was just nothing that screamed pick me. While we are in the cities we made a quick run to the Maplegrove Pottery Barn kids and found the perfect recliner.

Who's delivered a few weeks ago and we decided that we wanted to put it in our living room rather than in the baby's nursery since we've noticed that a lot of new parents spend more time in the living room that in the nursery itself for the first few months at least.

The recliner is a little lighter than expected so we've thrown a quilt over it so that it doesn't get stains or worn out before the baby arrives. We love it and it is very comfortable and so does our dog, Mozzy. He much rather late in the recliner and then on the big sectional that we have in the living room. I feel he only likes it because we tell him you can't be on it and he knows we didn't buy it for him. He is such a plush pup. Already showing signs of jealousy will see how this baby thing goes.
