Baby Business

It is one week until my sister-in-law is due to deliver a sweet little baby boy and I can definitely feel the itch!  Not to say that I need some super special event like this to send the itch into high gear (it seems to be a constant nowadays); but of course, it does make me super excited and sends me into the internet cosmos for more inspiration.

Yesterday, I finally sat down and watched The Business of Being Born and it was completely incredible.  If you have not seen it, do so as soon as possible.  It is a beautiful documentary about the wonders of birth and of course, the highly controversial techniques used within the medical field to treat pregnant mothers and their actively-being-born babies.


I found these awesome dinosaur lamps via Oh Happy Day and is it weird that I kind of want one for my own room?

Did anyone else read this book when they were little?  I remember reading this all the time when I was young and every time I remember feeling so nervous about what was going to happen to that silly mouse!


Back to my sis-in-law, I recently bought her this diaper clutch that holds a couple diapers, a travel case of wipes and a changing pad.  Not only is it nice and compact, perfect for that super short trip with your baby, but it's adorable!  I think I would take out the baby stuff and just use it as a regular clutch!  I'm definitely looking forward to seeing it in use.  Images from Little Pigeon Crafts.

Hurry little baby Rose Bud!  I can't wait to meet you!

  1. man, you've got serious baby fever. I just got finished watching that movie, so powerful. My mom is a doula and I've always though she was so lucky to be helping bring babies into the world every day. She used to work for a few hospitals in the Baltimore area but they have since cut a lot of the DONA programs. Now she works alongside midwifes in assisting home births. It's a shame that so many people are uninformed about the possibility of home births. Thanks for posting!
