Newest baby C. developments? Lots more giggles, his first restaurant outing (yes, we were scared, but he slept through the entire meal!), tons of drool (is he about to teethe??) and already outgrowing my fav little blue and brown collared shirt - sigh. Alas, there will be more. I have to tell you all - our neighbors had a baby boy this weekend. We are soooo excited for baby C.'s new playmate, and did I mention there will be THREE other babies on our street by the end of this year? There is something in the water around here!
If you're pregnant or know someone who is, one of the handiest, nicest gifts you can think about registering for or giving is a layette because it really does have all of the essentials. Baby C. has been wearing a TON of Ralph Lauren the past three months (I just think it looks so boyish and cute!), and I so wish we would've known about this 9-piece layette from RL ($125). (Guess we still have time! Anyone wanna buy us the 6- or 9-month set??) It's baby blue, in a signature white box and made of soft cotton jersey with the sweetest little bear print! And guess which celebs adore? None other than Amanda Peet and Sarah Jessica Parker; RL tells me they went "crazy over them!"
Here's what baby gets:
Two short-sleeved onesies, one solid blue and one with a bear print. Striped kimono gown with wrap neckline, elastic hem and embroidered pony at the chest.
Long-sleeved footed coverall with bear print, full ring-snap placket and fold-over cuffs.
Two bibs, one solid blue and one with bear print.
Solid blue hat and booties. Receiving blanket with bear print, solid white underside and ribbed trim.
P.S. You will use the heck out of those bibs (we're def in that stage now), and fellow winter babies will adore the receiving blanket!
