Last weekend I went to SoHo to meet up with my fabulous friend Heidi, who has a great eye for design and works for one of NYC’s #1 interior designer. Anyway, we headed over to Purl Soho to buy some fabric so I could make some pillows to update an old chair. Thank goodness Heidi was there! So many fabrics I liked! It was fun to see what fabrics I started out with but actually ended up buying.
Babystyle has some really cute baby shoes, especially for little boys which are so hard to find.
This is for the “Moms on the go” with babies who drink formula. I guess this bottle has been around for the last 10 years, but I just discovered it and am now on the hunt to find it! The travel bottle has a two-chamber design that stores the formula separate from the water. So when you are ready to feed your baby all you have to do is straighten the bottle and the formula mixes into the water. This is great–no more having to carry separate containers and formula spillage.
I just got my catalog for Mini Boden. I love how all their children’s clothes are fun, bright and cute. Prices are a little higher than Gap and Old Navy. But all the styles are so darling. I guess I’ve got to wait until sale. They also have a small number of styles that come in 6-12 months.
Stella was my little model for DMJ‘s April email blast. Here’s a few pics from the cutting room.
Seth is always questioning my decorating skills and thinks that sometimes I go over my head. I beg to differ, of course. Well, I was looking through my new issue of Domino and was happy to point out to him…”hey, look! It’s our sofa!” Okay, well it’s not exactly…but close to it with the same fabric. So, maybe he will start trusting my style.
We went to the doctor’s today for Stella’s 2 1/2 month check up and Lucas’s 9 month. I’m always curious what their stats are. Here’s the results:
Height + 35.5 ” = 50th percentile
Weight + 24.5″ = 10th percentile
Head + 46 circum = 75th percentile
Height + 29.25″ = 75th percentile
Weight + 21.6″= 70th percentile
My Anthropologie chair is on sale right now–25% off. I have the Astrid chair in the Naive Tropical but I really like this fabric also. It makes me smile. The chair seats well and is comfortable.
As I was shopping for Stella and Lucas’s Easter outfits, I saw this really cute smocked plaid dress at Gymboree and had to buy it for my little girl. It has gold metallic thread woven in the plaid fabric. I went against my principle of only buying children’s clothes at sale or discounted prices. It set me back about $32.00.
