I still remember the very first thing I purchased for Julian when I found out we were expecting. It was a soft, cloth sling so I could wear him on my chest while he slept. I absolutely could not wait to meet our guy and to hold him close to me. That wrap has always held such sentimental value, and made my pregnancy feel even more real. Despite all of the other signs that it was! So, I couldn’t wait to pick up my first few things for our sweet baby girl. And I was excited to see what would someday hold that same feeling for me. I took a trip to downtown Poulsbo to my favorite children’s boutique, Barna and Co, to find those perfect first items.
I ended up leaving with the most feminine and darling items, and it makes me all the more eager to meet our daughter. After being a boy mama for the past year and a half, I am so excited to be able to incorporate pinks and bows and flowers into the equation! The softest blush colored bow from Baby Bling Bows called out to me and I knew it was the one for our girl! If you’ve been following me since the beginning, you know that Kickee Pants is one of my favorite children’s lines. The fabric is out of this world soft and flexible, and makes changing a squirmy baby that much easier. I want their coveralls in every shade! This soft, natural KP onesie may even be the outfit we bring baby home in!
I also picked up a Jellycat lovely for our sweet girl. Julian has the bunny, and now baby sister will have the lamb. Makes my mama heart melt! Yet, I think I am most excited about the gorgeous Little Unicorn swaddle I picked up for our girl. When I got home that day I just stared at how sweet that garden rose print was, and I could already imagine wrapping our baby girl in it.
It’s amazing how a few pieces can transform your excitement, and in time can hold such sentimental value. We can’t wait to meet our sweet baby girl. She is so loved already, and will be as stylish as can be!
