My name is Erika. I'm in love with making art, collecting old things & chasing after my two kiddos. This blog is a peek into my happy accidents & plots of total world domination.


Baby Style//Nesting

I have the nesting fever and have been organizing and cleaning like a crazy person. Over the last few weeks, I have been going through all of the boxes of Nora's old baby's clothes. Being the hoarder that I am, I saved nearly everything. I'm pretty grateful that I did because now I don't really need a whole lot of  baby gear, but just a few fun things.

Going through Nora's old cloths has been pretty tough because it makes me think about when Nora was a baby.  So if course being 7 months pregnant, I was sitting folding onsies and crying, and just thinking about how my big girl is not so little anymore.  Nora then gives me a big hug and hands me her favorite teddy bear.  Even though a teddy bear fixes most things, it made me cry harder and think about how lucky I am.  It's amazing how something so simple such as clothes, can hold so many special moments. Now since I got a good cry out, I can focus on shopping and getting the baby's room ready.

I have found that there are so many cute little boy or gender neutral options that I just love.  Since my new baby is being born in the winter, I do have to make sure he has enough hats, gloves and shoes, right?

Such cute picks! I've heard that going through your children's baby clothes can be really emotional! You got this, girl! Soon you'll have another little one to snuggle! :)

I've never been able to get my babies to keep a hat on their heads! But yes, it's so important to keep them snuggly. We had a freak snowstorm the day after bringing my oldest home from the hospital! I was so glad to have some hats on hand.
