The past couple of months I have just been completely in love with and in awe of our sweet baby girl, Carter Rose Cadenhead. I feel like Buzz and I are getting the hang of this parenting thing - as much as one can I suppose. We definitely cherish every moment and are having so much fun along the way. IMG_0227

Soon I will post all the details of her nursery that has been the most fun project to date. So many personal items like the rocking chair my Grandfather was rocked in as a baby, artwork by my husband's mother and some eBay finds.

And although there are more aesthetically pleasing baby items on the market, sometimes you have to take matters into your own hands and make a wooden baby gym.

Not that we are professionals by any means - but a few items have really been helpful these first two months: The Ergobaby wrap has allowed me to be productive while snuggling, the Stokke bouncer allows my sous chef to watch comfortably, Charlie Banana diapers have kept her skin free from irritation, the Boppy makes breastfeeding so much easier on the back and neck, Aden + Anais swaddles are the best, and Dr Seuss - especially The Lorax - is a favorite already.
