Change Of Plans

So due to a sudden jump in my blood pressure and the fact that my doc thinks that this little one will be a big boy, i will be putting off the rest of the baby posts for about a week or so. I had originally thought that I had at least 2 more weeks but it turns out, I have 3 days before I welcome my son into the world. So, that also means that I'll have a baby boy to model all of the cute projects that I make.
See you soon !!! :)

Boy Stuff

I have been looking for shops that feature a wide variety of little boy clothing and accessories.
Here is what I found.

We all have seen or even made a onsie or t shirt with an appliqued tie or bow tie on it. These cute little guys over at stitchesbyrachel go a step further an add a corduroy vest. I love it!

I love graphic t's and I love Micheal Scott from The Office. You can grab this one and many others like it at VicariousClothing

This is probably one of the best/easiest pants pattern I have ever used. I won this pattern in a give away Vegbee had. In fact I helped name the pattern.

Hats always look great on little boys. I am not a fan of the knitted or crochet ones- too itchy. So these ones at pink2blue are perfect. There is also a variety of little shoes too.

I love all of SeamsByGwenny 's bumper sets. They are not the conventional cutesie baby sets. They are very bold and colorful.

I love this. Its very "boy". You can see this and more at boujiandnouna.

See this one at creations4babies.

And this stuff is my favorite. I found this shop, RockerByeBaby on Etsy, and all of this stuff ROCKS. There is much more than just bumpers. There are blankets and accessories and more.

I am sure there is much more out there. If you have a shop or know of any other kick ass boy stuff send me a link and I will feature it on here.

Where's all of the Boy Stuff!!!

So this up coming weekend my sister in law is throwing me a baby shower. Of course I was excited, not because of all of the gifts, I was excited to go and register for gifts. I love going to register for gifts. I have no clue why. They give you a scanner gun type thingy and you get to go and scan all of the things you think that you need. Its actually more of a want.
So naturally I scanned the basics. Bottles (even though I plan on breast feeding ), infant tub, diapers, blankets, burp clothes, you know all that stuff that we need. Then it was time for the stuff that I want!!! I love those little bumbo seats, so i scanned one of them, an electric aspirator, and a boppy. Then I went to look for a crib set because I decided that I am not in the mood to make one my self. That another one of those prego things. You think you can do all of this stuff, but when it comes down to it, you really either don't have the time or energy or you just don't give a "you know" enough. Ok, so back to the crib set. There were cute little teddy bears, and monkeys, fuzzy little farm animals, some puppies, and then I said wait!!! Little boys don't do cute. They are boys!!! I had a little brother and I have watched  many other little boys . Boys play in the mud. They bring their mom bugs and stuff. They terrorize their sisters. They like to through things!!!!
There was nothing that said " a real little boy sleeps here". There were no cars and tractors, no footballs, airplanes and trucks, no bugs, nothing.
So I am on a mission find some real boy stuff.
Come back later to see what I have found.

I am Back

Alright, so I know that its been awhile. Between moving 3 times now and just the basic everyday complications of being prego, its been a little hard to maintain my blog. I am sorry and I am ready to get blogging!!!
