This is the first time in my life where I know this many women who are pregnant or trying to get there. It’s totally blowing my mind in a, “Wait. What? Grownup who? Oh, I’m friends with mothers… and wannabe mothers? Who the…” kinda way. Plus… it’s Mother’s Day on Sunday… or in my world “Momma Day”, the day where my mom gets to have my dad jump out of bed, and drive to get her coffee while she waits in a warm bed. This is a holy day in my house.
I digress. Babies. What to buy for babies? What to buy for mother’s of babies and small ones? Every time I walk by the kids section at Target I can’t help but oogle at the little baby jeans and the little baby tutus and the little baby pajamas. Drool. So let’s start.
If I had any talent whatsoever I would knit these for every baby I know. And then I would continue with the grown people because AWWWWWWWWW.
But, if you are like me and have no craft skill whatsoever, you can buy these adorable hats at BabeeStitches Etsy Shop. They are 22 dollars, come in a variety of sizes and are sure to get you the biggest sighs at the baby shower. Every body wins.
And what happens when your bald little girl is constantly being called a little boy? Or if you just want her to wear GIANT FLOWERS ON HER HEAD. Because, why not? You have ultimate control, so why not exert it? For Adorableness.
More robots please. The world needs more robot art.
This one’s named Walter. And Walter has many friends over at Modern Pop. They all need homes. In the baby’s room. Or … your kitchen. Wherever. You won’t see me judging… or talking lovingly to my new robot friend… stop staring at me. You’re making Walter uncomfortable. Shh… pay no attention to them, Walter.
Again, if I had any skills whatsoever I may be able to create this awesome dress by Rocker Baby Inc., but I do not. So I will gladly pay someone who days. Especially for the bow. LOOK AT THE BOW! I think the best gifts at baby showers are either spa days for the mom (hells yeah) or stuff for the older-than-newborn-baby (this is, of course, leaving out the massively expensive things that I couldn’t afford anyway). I may be wrong, and please correct me if so, but they only stay little for a short time. They may stay toddler sized for longer than teensy baby size. So why not?
I want to be a baby just for these shoes, eff giving them to a baby, I want them for me. But, I guess… I’ll have to deal with the fact that my feet will never be that small and adorable again. And that Zuzii Footwear doesn’t make Petal Shoes in my size. (Damn the man.) They come in lots of colors, so white is definitely not the only option.
This kind of colorful, textured art is something I would have loved as a kid. And something as an adult, I would want decorating one of my rooms. It seems like such a no brainer: Wood, lovely materials, owls. Done and done. But really, this is made me a thoughtful eye, and a mind for color. Petit Collage has bunches of lovely designs like Owl and Baby. Plus! These designs are made from vintage, found, hand painted and recycled papers mounted on maple plywood. Recycled art for the win!
Raise your hand if you have a baby shower to attend sometime soon? Raise your hand if you’re going to be throwing a baby shower for your bun in the oven? There are tons and tons of awesome baby things on the internets. Go explore! Maybe you’ll find a lovely independent artist type to adopt for your baby’s
