Five on Friday

in light of last week’s news, we’ll have five on friday {baby edition}!

besides the obvious – {starting a family, caring for another human, teaching them to do fun things and navigate through life, etc.} – finding out we were expecting brought with it so much more to look forward to!

one. the outfits

just glancing around the J.CREW baby page is enough to make me swoon! so many cute options for little guys and gals for just everyday wear! don’t get me started with holidays and special occasions!

two. actually…let’s do

to me, holidays are the highlight of the year! I’m always counting down to the next one and can’t wait to experience them through the eyes of my mini! I’ve seen Christmas lights and gone trick-or-treating for 26 years –  so a fresh perspective is going to be amazing!

I’ve been excited for holidays with a baby for so long, I even have a Pinterest board dedicated to them! with our mini due in February I can’t wait to cover him/her in lipstick kisses!

three. the nursery decor!

I have always been drawn to a neutral-ish nursery design with just some accents of color and girl or boy touches! I’m so excited to get the green paint in the new nursery covered with a subtle ‘greige’ and add hints of blue or pink!

four. an excuse to be a kid again {kind of}.

play-dates at the park, rainy days watching Disney classics and reading bedtime stories that I haven’t opened in years are just a few things that I am so excited to do again! obviously I’m the parent now, but who doesn’t love having a picnic under the trees or cuddling on the couch with Belle?

five. watching everyone in their new roles.

witnessing my husband become a father, our parents become grandparents, sisters turn to aunties, cousins become playmates and friends be the fun aunties and uncles will be one of the greatest parts! we have such an amazing support system of family and friends and their joy throughout this pregnancy so far is just a little preview of how amazing they will be when our little one arrives!!
