boy oh boy!


I have to admit that when we found out we were having a boy, I mourned the fact that I wouldn't get to dress my baby in sweet flower headbands and pink ruffle-butts.

 I really love a good ruffle-butt.

Never fear. All I needed was some good internet therapy. I've been doing lots of browsing online for our sweet boy and have discovered some adorable little boy finds and new handmade shops to love.

from left to right, clockwise::

baby boy newborn hat from puntebella on etsy:: Even though we'll be living in warm climates for the first year of baby boy's life, I'm pretty sure I'll find an excuse to dress him in a sweet hat like this.

surfer onesie:: This onesie from Old Navy reminds me of the one I made for Chris to tell him I was pregnant. Only now, we know there's a little dude in there!

handmade plush fox from sleepyking on etsy:: I can just picture this plush little guy hanging out in the nursery. He would add the perfect touch of whimsy.

tiny toms:: I see lots of "needless" purchases in my future-- these yellow corduroy TOMS are so adorable and totally splurge-worthy.


springtime showers bib from little pigeon crafts on etsy:: The colors in this bib are perfect and so happy! 

DIY onesie:: I have zero sewing skills, so I may need one of you to make me this DIY onesie from Omi Creates blog. I'm a wee bit obsessed with stripes for little boys and I am digging the classic shape of this onesie!

I've added a bunch of these items and much more to my Amazon Baby Registry (which is totally awesome because you can add any item from any website!). I like that I can register for the "needs" like a carseat, stroller, diaper cream, as well as the "wants" like prints for the nursery and adorable onesies.

I've also been planning and scheming up our little guy's nursery. It's a bit difficult to truly plan it, since we don't know what kind of living situation we'll be in when we move to Florida, but I will definitely share my inspiration and plans for it soon!

  4. You found so many adorable things. I have a boy and a girl and I can honestly say that are both soooooo fun to dress when they're babies. I love a ruffle bum as well, but boys have so many cute little things as well. :)

  6. I spotted that striped onesie on pinterest myself, and my 10 week pregnant super emotional self got a lump in my throat when I saw it. Yeah. I cried about a onesie. I'm glad to see you embracing boy things - I've been afraid that I would be disappointed if we find out we're having a boy, but it does help to see the preciousness out there!

  9. I felt the same way when I found out I was having a boy: Not as many frills and accessories to plan for:) But every day I get more and more excited that I am having a boy and seeing things like those little toms make my heart swoon! It definitely takes a little more creativity when you're planning for a little dude.

    p.s. I had the little blue bunny from the same etsy store as the fox on my registry too! Love that sweet shop.

  11. Lindsay! I have loved your blog for a year. Months ago when I read your good news I made my hubby come up to share it with me. We've been on the baby kick since almost our first week of marriage 10 months ago (we're old enough ;-)) I'm happy to say now we're expecting and I continue to check your blog for fashion inspiration! We're only 10 weeks along, but I keep thinking of the cute quote "baby bloat". Take care and best wishes!

  12. That striped onesie is SOOOO cute! Boys really are so much fun, even if the clothes aren't quite as cute :) I have always thought that I NEEDED to have a girl, but I realized the other day that if and when we decide to have a third child, I would kind of love it if it were another boy.
