cute things!

There is some super cute stuff at The Land of Nod, a cool kids sub-site of Crate & Barrel.

the great chair debate

We need a chair in our nursery and I'm really on the fence. B wants a big puffy (aka ugly) recliner and I really don't. I don't want to spend a small fortune, nor be engulfed in a chair much too large for me. My original plan pre-baby was to put my Ikea Poang chair & ottoman in the nursery... but now it resides in a lovely spot beside our huge front windows that will be perfect for chilling with baby on the main floor.

Kijiji has about a million gliders for sale at any time, so that's a possibility. I'm also really liking this bentwood rocker and it's just over $100! The rest are from either cnsbaby.com (which ships to Canada) or Babysrus (which I'd have to get shipped to the border) and can get ottomans with them. They're more around the $400-600 range but they sure do look comfortable.

nursery inspirations

Over the past few months I've gathered these pretty nurseries as inspiration for our gender-neutral baby room. I forget where these are from though - bad blogger! I'm determined to create a peaceful space with little pops of colour and pattern that avoids being too "cutesy". That's the best word I can use to describe the pastel-coloured/Disney-charactered/matchy-matchy typical nursery that some folks might love, but just isn't my thing.

cute monsters

These screen printed posters might not work for the theme in our nursery but they'd be way too cute in a kids room one day. The Monster Friends Series is available at Family Tree Design & Illustration. Too bad they're sold out of the green, it's the best one... but how cool is glow in the dark??

stroller ordered!

After an insane amount of research and deliberation... we ordered our stroller! Its the Bumbleride Indie with Carrycot and was probably our biggest splurge because we plan to use it a ton on our gravel road once summer arrives. Can't wait for it to arrive!

more animals

A few years until Baby B can really use this cool toy, but it's so awesome! Goes on my wish list. Found via my new favourite site: ohdeedoh.
