Baby Bear

It's so hard not to run out and buy every cute little boy outfit you see, now that we know what we're having. Ben is the kind of shopper, that if you really want something, you get it, while I wait for sales and am an ultimate bargain shopper.

I've been doing a little online shopping for cute onesies with funny sayings on them, sports team apparel, and educational toys.......but Ben has been a little different. He hadn't bought anything until now.

A little background: Every time we go to Disneyland (at least 4-5 times per year), we always walk through the shops in downtown Disney at the end of the night. There is a big Anne Geddes store with some of the most adorable photos, dolls and little baby outfits. Everything is beyond cute, but crazy expensive.

I about died when we got back from our cruise and Ben had a little Birthday present that he said was for me, but not for me........meaning he had an excuse to buy something he knows I never would have purchased. It was an Anne Geddes box and inside was the furry baby bear outfit we've looked at a hundred times. It's got the one piece outfit with the bear ear cap and booties. Ben's excuse was that it was just so cute and we always looked at it when we were in the shop...... and it would be perfect when we visited Yreka at Christmas time.

I will admit, it is one of the cutest things I've ever seen, although it's a bummer we'll be waiting over 6 months before he'll even be close to fitting into it!

Getting a head start on our Little Man's Room

I can't believe how long it's been since my last post. I seem to always have something more important to do, or I'm just too exhausted to sit down at the computer and write anything.

However, we found out a couple of weeks ago, we are going to be having a little boy. I've already found a super cute bedding set that I love! I knew that if we were going to have a boy, I wanted to do a jungle themed room. I wanted to avoid something that was way too babyish, and fit more of the the contemporary feel of our house.

Ben will be starting on the painting of the room shortly, and we've been shopping around for a cute crib and dresser for the room as well. We've started our registry and this is what we're starting with.
