As I’ve been packing for the hospital over the last couple of days, I decided, hey! Why not blog about it? So here is a list of things I have packed in our baby girl’s diaper bag:
Cute Diaper Bag
Baby’s first aid kit
Hand and Face Wipes
Teething gel or tablets
Plastic bag (for dirty clothes or diapers)
Snacks and water bottle for mom especially if you’re nursing.
I ended up buying the Petunia Pickle Bottom Sashay Satchel in Paris Noir and could not be happier with it! I can wear it as a tote or as a backpack which is a huge deal to me! I also love all the pockets and storage it has since I will be putting 2 kid’s things in it this time around.
With H, I learned the hard way to never ever leave without a plastic bag and at least 2 outfits packed. I had a couple of bad accidents with him in the beginning and it was not pleasant.
Speaking of outfits, I absolutely love this TuTu Sweet In Pink Boutique. They have the cutest onesies, and you are in luck because they are giving one away to my lucky readers! Go to TSIPB’s Facebook page and choose the onesie you want from this album! Enter in the rafflecopter below! Good luck!
Ryan laughs at me because I call newborns “new babies.” I’m not sure why, but I always have. I mean, they ARE new. Anyways… when I saw this adorable onesie, I knew I had to have it. First of all, I decided at the beginning of the year that my color was going to be gold. I’ve been loving gold sparkly everything lately. With the phrase and the fast that the letters are all gold and sparkly, I just couldn’t say no to this one. My baby girl had to have it. I have obviously packed it in our hospital bag, because she needs to wear it while she is “new.” 🙂
What did you include in your diaper bag? Did I leave anything out?
These precious hospital hats are GREAT quality and I can’t wait for little SR to wear them! They would also make excellent gifts for your next baby shower! Be sure to check out Infanteenie Beenie on Etsy, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram!
Deer Gown: Kandi Daniel Studios here
As I was going through all of our baby girl’s clothes the other day, it hit me that I had not purchased any gowns for her to wear. I put Hampton in gowns every night for the first few months because they made it so easy to change him during the night, and we were doing a lot of that. It hit me immediately that I needed to get some gowns ASAP, so I took to Etsy, of course. I found this adorable little monogrammed antler gown from Kandi Daniel Studios and I knew I had to have it. Not only is the design adorable, but I love the ruffle detail on the sleeves. It is so girly which is a must for our little girl.
By the way, did you catch it? Her initials are SRC! I’ll let you have fun guessing at her name for the next few weeks. 🙂 I’m so excited to share it with everyone. Her middle name is very special to Ryan and me for very different reasons, but we have known since before we got married that we wanted to use it, and her first name just seemed to click with both of us one day. It also goes great with Hampton, so it was a done deal. I am thrilled that we finally settled on a name and I can monogram all. the. things.
Kandi Daniel Studios has so many cute tees for brides, moms, and babies, as well as monogrammed shorts, Easter toys and more! She offers a wide variety and everything is so adorable.
Kandi is giving all new customers a 15% discount with code NEW15 with your first order!
And now for my weekly bump update!
How Far Along: 32 weeks! Only 8 more to go!
We are officially 2 months (or sooner) away from meeting our baby girl! I have finally organized Hampton’s new room and Baby Girl’s closet, and I have officially started decorating! I know I know, it’s about time. With all the adorable nursery ideas on Pinterest, I just couldn’t decide what to choose. With less than 9 weeks until she arrives, I still have a lot to do around here. It’s times like these that I am very thankful for Etsy. I was so exited to find these adorable baby blocks from Blockaholic Boutique. They are so adorable and GREAT quality. I am loving these blocks for a baby boy. Are they not the cutest? They are real wood, painted and personalized. They can be customized to your specifications. Since we didn’t know our baby girl’s name until just recently – yes, we FINALLY have a name!! – I ordered the blocks to say “bebe Cantrell” instead!
Since we have waited so late to decide on a name, we are going to wait to announce it until she is born, however, you will get a sneak peek at her initials later this week! I’ve got to keep you guessing! 🙂
I’m so thankful to have finally started decorating her nursery. Luckily, I don’t have much more to do. I have one more shelf to decorate and I need to find something to put over her crib. Other than that, we are all set! I can’t wait to share more details of her nursery with you as I complete it!
Be sure to check out Blockaholic Boutique on Etsy! They have the cutest blocks and nursery decor around!
Of course I had to get her a buffalo plaid head wrap for next fall/winter. I mean, she is my daughter. She must have plaid. I also picked her up one of my favorite childhood books this week. Madeline is a classic and is set in my favorite city in the world. Win/win in my book!
These goodies are making me really excited for her arrival. While we are still far from ready as far as her nursery and preparations, we are getting so much closer to playing endless dress up. I. Can’t. Wait. Less than 12 weeks and counting, little one.
Baby girl is already getting spoiled. Not only did she get a few gifts for Christmas, but she got her first pair of moccasins this week! They are so tiny and adorable! She even got a matching bow. I mean, how could she not? I came across Mini Moccs and Bows on Instagram (of course) and fell in love with their baby moccs. I am very pleased with the quality and I can’t wait to dress her up in them. They’ve got a few new styles available and even have a pair of leopard moccs! I am in love. Why didn’t anyone warn me that having a girl would break me? 😉
Mini Moccs and Bows is so affordable. I will definitely be ordering from them in the future. Their baby bows and moccs would make a lovely baby gift as well.
How far along: 24 weeks tomorrow!
Size of baby:1 and 1/3 pound and 12 inches long!
Gender: Our sweet baby Girl!
Weight Gain: I officially hit the dreaded 10 lb. mark this week. I feel good and have been exercising a good bit and eating healthy, but I have a feeling those pounds are coming. I am 10 lbs. down from where I was with Hamp at this point which I am very thankful for.
Movement: She is moving all the time! She even wakes me up during the night. Ryan has felt her many times this week and he loves it!
