Baby Three Things

I was at my monthly check-up for baby girl last week and realized we only have one more appointment before I come every other week until the end, and oh my goodness, we are having another baby!!  We still have so much to do before she comes, but now that we have moved into our house she officially has a room and I have also been able to finally pull out some of the things we have been collecting for her which is always so much fun!  Tiny baby things have my heart forever & ever.


She is due September first, and if she's anything like her big sisters will come sometime (most likely a long time) after that, so I am loving shades of mustard & greens for her during that time of year.  Soft, lightweight muslins are such a must-have for us, we use them for everything, bonus points if they are extra pretty and can be used for decor as well!  I've rounded up all the other items pictured below, these will all be new to us this time around and I am so excited to use them for our littlest sister.

Dock-A-Tot -- We started using this for Avalon when she was about a year & a half (we used the Grand, found here, and you can read about our experience here).  When I started thinking about things we would want for baby three, the smaller version of the one we had before was one of the first things I put on the list, this products is just so good.  It really does have a huge impact on sleep, which is obviously life-changing!  We also used this on a few different trips and when the girls would stay overnight with the grandparents, which was so helpful as well.  It's really worth the money, I cannot say enough good things about it and it will forever be one of my first recommendations for anyone expecting!

Ollie Swaddle -- This will be our first time using this swaddle and I am so, so excited about it!  I remember having about 1567 different kind of swaddles (and sleep suits and everything else) when Waverly was a newborn and honestly didn't really love any of them, most likely because I couldn't figure most of them out.  The reviews on this are amazing and I also love that it's designed to transition the baby when she is ready to have her hands out and starting to learn to self-soothe.  I chose the prettiest shade of grey, it's super neutral and so soft.

Binxy Baby Shopping Cart Hammock -- I have been eyeing this forever, it's completely one of those products that I wish I would have thought of myself, best idea ever!  I already have a hard time fitting groceries into the cart with two kids, I don't know how I ever would have done it with three.  The idea behind the hammock is that it easily clips into most carts, and then hangs elevated so that you can fit your groceries underneath.  There are a ton of prints & colors to choose from, we got a floral pattern and I can't wait to put her in it!

Lorena Canal Basket -- We have worked with Lorena Canal before on a rug for Avalon's nursery and this time around, got the prettiest basket for baby girl's room!  I love all of their items so much, everything is so versatile and well-thought out to use in a space for kids.  I chose the rose & natural basket, which honestly could be used in any room in the house, I plan to put some of her blankets, books & little dollies in it (if her big sissies don't try to take it first!).

Hope this was helpful to anyone else expecting, cannot wait to share more about our plans to prep for our littlest lady soon!  Just THREE months to go!  XO
