Baby Talk – Tell Me What You Want

Jul 27

Hi, friends, and happy Monday! A quick post this morning to talk about baby talk. As in, tell me what you want! Considering this is my first time growing a human and therefore such matters have previously been largely irrelevant around here, I’d love to know what you’re most interested in my sharing over the next few months. For sure I’m planning to share about the nursery, some about the baby shower and maybe a few DIYs along the way. Would it be helpful to know what I’m registering for? Do you want weekly or occasional updates on how my pregnancy is going? Spill the beans! I want to know what is of greatest interest to you so I can try to work in the baby topics you find most interesting without inundating you with baby talk 24/7.

From my perspective, I’d also really love to know if you happen to be expecting, too! How far along are you? What awesome advice have you received so far? Is this your first pregnancy? Do you have other kiddos or step kids? Tell me all the baby things! Today we are precisely four months out from my due date and I have a feeling the next few months are going to go really really fast. Anyone else expecting a November or December baby? Ok, ok. I’ll stop rambling. Pipe up in the comments though and let’s get this baby party started!

  1. I am all about the “keeping-it-realness” of baby talk! I remember all the things I said I would never do…and then I did them. Like I swore…NO SCREEN TIME. PERIOD. Yeah right. I definitely don’t let him sit in front of the TV but there was that one time when he had a terrible diaper rash and I let him crawl around on the living room floor with no diaper and the only way to get him to stay in one place (lest I end up with pee and poop all over) was the turn on The Wiggles. So he watched the wiggles. And all was well. All that to say – would love to hear about how parenting that itty bitty baby changes your perspective on things you thought you’d “never” do.

    1. Hahaha I love that, Amber! I intend to pretty intense about the screen time thing, too. I don’t want to wake up one day with a two or three year old who is addicted to screens! We’ll see how that goes. lol

  2. I’ve been so bad with posting about anything baby. Eeks! So I love that you’re getting feedback.
    I think posting about what you’re registering for would be super helpful. I had a hard time figuring out what I wanted and read tons of blogs to get a sense of what was out there.

    1. I agree, Tan! I am just now starting the registry process and because we know we’re only doing this once (considering how awesomely huge our family is already going to end up lol), I am trying to particularly careful about not over purchasing. But at the same time I want to be covered, you know? It can be super tricky!

  3. Pregnant with my third little peanut (only 8 weeks though). So though I FEEL like a pro, we had already decided we were done and gotten rid of EVERYTHING baby — so when the universe had other plans for us … lets just say I plan on getting creative this time around. More DIY and less $$ on things that I never ended up using the first two times anyways!!!

    1. Congratulations, Jennifer! I am so so excited for you. I would love your input on the things you’ve found most useful (or, for that matter completely useless), because I’m really trying to be judicious with the purchasing and collecting of baby gear, gadgets and gizmos. Also, our baby is an instance of the universe having other plans so I completely feel you on that one! ;-) xoxo

  4. I have to share one of most unique gift ideas that I have seen for a baby boy. I encountered this gift given at my Sister in law’s shower for my nephew Jaxon. It was called a pee pee teepee! It is a small triangle shaped piece of washable fabric that helps to avoid the wild pee shots! It got more oohs and ashes than any car seat or outfit that day. Of course knowing we are soon to be blessed with a little Cyd it will be all about the fashion!

    1. Lisa, a pee pee teepee! That’s seriously hilarious. lol I think most of my nephews have gotten me with the wild pee shots so that’s pretty brilliant. ;-) xoxoxo

  5. My babies are growing up! A is 4 and P is 3. To be honest, I’m not hugely into blogs that share their favorite baby bags and monitors, but I know a ton of people love that kind of stuff. The kid related things I love is seeing how they transformed the nursery, how you can do “kid related” crafts and still stay on trend, etc. You’ve got such great style, I’m sure no matter what direction you will take, it will be wonderful!

  6. I’m currently pregnant with my second little boy. Due Nov 7th. I say bring on the baby stuff! But I know it can be hard to want to talk and share, but not annoy your readers or change the feel of the blog. Everything in moderation.
