Something in the Water...

sweet angel slippers via oeuf

No I’m not pregnant (and for the record, I have no plans to be), but it seems like everyone I know is.

My sister Jennifer is pregnant, as is my friend Lucia + my best friend Achlee and my other best friend Stacy are both pregnant… And there are loads of blog friends are with child – there’s Jora, Jenn, Kristina, Gabby (who has asked some of her buddies to share their pregnancy memories this week over at Design Mom… you can peek at mine here.)

Despite two rather uncomfortable pregnancies, I loved the entire experience of being pregnant. It’s a pretty amazing, life changing, unbelievable thing…but that goes without saying I suppose.

So congrats to all my lovely friends! Can’t wait to help you love up on those new babies.

And just for fun, a few of my favorite baby things of late...

Gorgeous Bookhou mobile


Nina's lovely personalized plates... This to me is the ideal new baby gift -- artful and meaningful and unique.

That mobile is fantastic!

It seems that every day brings news of a new baby on the way--whether it be friends, family, a blogger whose blog I read regularly...so exciting!

I second your well-wishing to all the pregnant ladies out there! I can't wait to see pictures of all the beautiful new babies. No plans to repeat that experience here either, but cute baby stuff definitely still catches my eye.

Lucia said...

O man, I love that mobile.

1) Milo needs that mobile.
2) Have another baby. It's fun.

Kate --

1)Milo does need that mobile.

2)I already have two babies...oooh three...that would give me a run for my money for sure

3)Although photos of that Milo have tempted me mightily... I'm just sayin.

The minute I saw the those ADORABLE slippers, I knew I was going to love this post. Not only did I just discover that I'm pregnant with our first child, but six of my friends (included two sisters) are pregnant as well! You can imagine the hormonal tsunami we're all battling over here. Nothing a little light shopping (for slippers, mobiles and plates) can't take care of.

you just stopped my heart for a second...i thought there was another girlie on the way!

{is m a middle child? just asking...grae was always a middle child. from day one.}

love love love to spend time at your place. i just do.

Joslyn said...

karey -- you know m is a total youngest...the baby full on. i think that's one of the biggest reasons i hold back from 3. not sure how she would fare as a middle.

but your sweet girlies 3 do make me consider it ;-)
