Baby is nearly here. Weeks are left, but weeks are not as a watched kettle, but rather the pot you put on the stove only to smell it burning a moment later. (It was more than a moment, but life is busy and it seemed as if it was only a second.)
I am nervous. Expectant. Unsure. Ready.
I am so many things. But isn't that the way these last weeks always go. There is so much unknown, but also the love and anticipation we've known from the moment we read that "positive."
I thought I'd share a few special things we've collected in preparation for baby. Also, this is a "call for help" as I'd love to know everyone's favorite baby brands. We are looking for ethically-made, small business companies, as we want to switch to a more earth-friendly wardrobe/any other products.
Also, Moses baskets! Who makes the best one?! We need one desperately! (We cannot fit a crib in our room, currently. not even a co-sleeper.)

Oh, Autumn. Is there anything better than the crisp mornings that turn into warm, comfortable afternoons. When the leaves dance in whirlwinds above your head and apples are in your basket. In Autumn, there are birds passing through and squirrels scurry around the yard storing acorns in the ground.
I'm not sure there is anything better than watching the boys enjoy the fall. One of our favorite places to explore is Wallisch Homestead. With wide open spaces and buildings that have been standing for about 200 years it's a great place to bring the boys. It's part of our town's history and I love that the boy's get to experience that even if they spend most of their time chasing each other. ;)
Have I mentioned I love Autumn?
Oh, and sweaters. Glorious, comfy sweaters and corduroy pants. Flannel camp button ups and colors that match our surroundings.
All of their outfits are by EGG by Susan Lazar and I'm not sure fall clothes could be done better than by them. They are comfortable, which is great for my active boys and oh so handsome on them. I almost couldn't handle it! I may have squealed with delight every few minutes or so exclaiming, "They are just too cute!"
But moms are allowed to do that right? xx
