for you, baby.

the sweetest knit from sweet ahnika in california to keep your head warm in cold winters here
a book your mama's been reading to try to get ready to welcome you into the world 
and a journal from your mama to you... with all her thoughts and fears and joys as you grow
the softest onesie ever... your mama's first baby purchase.  can't believe you'll be so small to fit in it
a sweet owl from your cousin quinn... he can't wait to meet you
and you... the little guy who all this is for.  would you believe it if we told you we loved you already?

and a song your mama's been listening to while she thinks about you... 
one day you'll be in her arms listening to it together.

  2. So sweet. What joy awaits! I'm assuming you've heard of/seen Ricki Lake's movie The Business of Being Born? I'm sure with your Bradley-teaching sister you already know about it. I found it to be great for getting me really excited for a natural birth. I actually just posted our new baby's birth story if reading such things interests you in your pregnant state :)

  35. Not sure how I stumbled upon your bloggy, but thought I'd stop and say hello and congrats!

    As for baby name suggestions, I'm partial to the name Jude, but also just heard the name Lochlan and think it's pretty kickass as well. Happy name hunting. ;)
