Sitting in a tree
First comes love
Then comes marriage
Then comes the baby in a baby carriage
It’s true! I’m watching it happen all around me! I have a slew of close friends and family that are in different stages of pregnancy and two friends, a cousin and a coworker, brought babies into the world Monday evening. Sometimes it’s a scary thought....bringing new life into our crazy world, right?!?
I try to focus on the happy, sweet and fabulous things about pregnancy and child rearing. My sister-in-law, Amanda, is 7 months along. She’s my greatest inspiration in the search for all things baby.
1. As my sister-in-law and I scour the Internet for cute hospital gowns, we discovered this great Etsy shop, Lily & LOU, where the colors and fabrics of the gowns seem like anything but a hospital gown:

2. We were also searching for cute, handmade slippers for the hospital and found these in the Etsy shop, Craft Junky:

3. I purchased these baby boat shoes for my nephew, Graham. He will arrive in September and I can’t wait for him to wear these. Thanks to CrochetKisses over at Etsy, he’ll be stylin’! Keep your eye on this shop. I talked to Beth of CrochetKisses and she’s in the process of moving her stuff to a new shop and she's worth keeping tabs on.

I could go on all day about great Etsy shops, just keep your eye on the EtsyBaby Blog for all things handmade and baby!
Ohdeedoh. This Apartment Therapy Blog has me hooked. If you’re a parent or soon-to-be parent, check it out! They have the best nurseries, tips and ideas. They also do a birthday feature which is a unique way to find some baby name inspiration.
Here’s what’s inspiring a girlfriend of mine. An awesome nursery!

My favorite wedding blogger, Grey Likes Weddings, also has a baby blog! Grey Likes Baby. And Grey Likes Nesting. I digress.
Here’s a list of other sites that have caught my fancy:
Dimples and Dandelions
Baby Style Watch
I hope you take the time and put forth the effort to bring your baby into a happy and healthy environment…..and maybe with a little style.
