Musings: 1 Week as a Mom

1. I cannot stare at this little creature that came out of me enough. I'm still so stunned by the whole pregnancy process and what it produced.  I loose hours a day just watching him and the funny faces he makes.
2. While yes, I'm tired a lot and getting little sleep, I think I might actually be getting more sleep than the last few weeks of pregnancy. And now it's at least waking up for something amazing.
3. I still look pregnant.  But more like 5-6 months along.  I'm waiting for the first comment from someone with no tact asking how far a long I am or something.
4. Somehow, watching my husband with our first baby, I have found an even deeper love for him - I didn't know I could love him even more.  He's an amazing father already.
5. I love seeing my parents as first time grandparents & sister as an aunt.
6. This first week has really been all about feeding, changing diapers and trying to squeeze in some naps/sleep when babe does.
7. I need to get better at feeding with one hand so I can get more done.  Sorry for all the late replies to emails, texts and phone calls friends!

Overall, I love being a mom already. I can't even picture how my life without him use to be.

Mister Man

Little girl clothes have always been so adorable, but I have to say little boy clothes have come a long way!  They have gotten way cuter, don't you think?  And with accessories like bow-ties, vests & suspenders, swoon.

H&M Baby Sweetness

This past Thursday, Kansas City's H&M store opened to the masses!  This store, besides women's, junior's, men's, lingerie & accessories, has a kid and baby section!  And boy do they have some cute stuff.  This will definitely become a go to place for buying clothes for this growing little mister.

Here are the few things I got {this round}:

 Suspender printed onsie... the front & back, too cute!

 Baby warmth!  Little faux-sherpa hat and sweatsuit onesie for this winter.

Can't wait to dress the little guy in these cute duds.  Can't wait to meet him... 1 more month!

For the Love of Elephants

Baby boy has me loving elephants lately.  His nursery decor is black and white all different patterns with bright green and accents of elephants.  Here are a few elephant items we have for the little mister, and a few more I love!

We are lucky to have: Elephant Pouf (got one for our nursery); Plush Elephant Stuffed Animal (a sweet gift we got from my work); We have 3 sweet little elephant wall hooks, where the trunk is the hook; One of my best friends got this most adorable Rattan Elephant Hamper for the baby room, and it couldn't be cuter

Also love: Cute and fun burp clothes; Color-customizable Elephant Mobile; Sweet Elephant Frame from DwellStudio; Decorative Elephant patterned pillow; Bright colored elephants print

Do you love elephants as much as me??  Someday soon (as soon as it's ready) I'll feature the nursery in all it's glory! It's really coming along and I love it.

Cute Ugly Dolls

I'm obsessed with these Ugly Dolls!  I think they are so funny.  I recently got one on special from HauteLook and it is now waiting patiently for little boy to arrive in his little room.

Our Ugly Doll is Uglybot Blue and he's super soft.

Hip Baby Duds

Baby clothes options are no longer just splattered with cartoon figures - there are options!  Some of these little baby-wears I wish came in adults sizes.  They a hip!

All these darling little baby clothes are from Zara's new-ish kid line.  
I also adore H&M & Target's baby clothes!
And while I am having a boy... and thankfully boy clothes have gotten tons cuter, I can't help but eye the girl clothes, too.  I would wear all of this in my size!  Maybe the next baby will be a girl?
