A recent discovery: it's super easy to let your home become overrun with baby stuff. We are, however, doing our best to keep things simple. Once the little man is sleeping through the night, he will move into his nursery, but for now...he is bunking with us. There are a few things that I have found to be essential... a Moses basket with organic bedding and a rocking stand, something with which to play music and a mobile. That's it...that is all that you need for a nice sleeping space. Speaking of music, we are loving lullabies by Jewel and Linda Ronstadt. Gentle enough for a baby, but enjoyable for adults too!
You may also find it necessary to display absurdly cute pictures of your baby around the room too...but then again, that might just be me!
We are off on our first overnight adventure to Newport this weekend and I am trying my best not to pack the entire house!
