ohhh baby!

i was just browsing my recently hearted items on etsy and realized that anyone else looking at them may come to the conclusion that i am with child. well let me tell you, that just ain't so!

my brother and his wife are expecting in may and they've decided to keep the sex of the baby a surprise. so that leaves me favoriting items for girls and boys all over the place, just waiting for the day i can scoop them up!

here are some top faves...

whenever evan and i do decide to pop out a few little ones, i would pretty much like for them to own every single bit of clothing from the measure's shop. this little summer romper with its ruffled bum is just way too cute for words!

if it's a little girl they have, these super cute flower booties, from gracious may, are going to be ordered stat! oh so adorable on chubby little baby feet!

apericots shop speaks to the former nyc girl in me. this awesome "stay fresh" onesie is just too much! i know my brother would be stoked to dress his new little dude or lady in this one.

the good ship lollipop has some of the most adorable vintage inspired dresses i've ever seen. i must secretly admit that i wish they came in adult sizes too! they're even upcycled as well, so they're good for your little ones fashion AND good for the earth!

i'm not totally positive if i hearted this traditional tattoo style onesie from truly sanctuary, for my brother, or myself. i'm pretty darn sure i need one of these for my unborn child. how tough would your baby be sporting this little number! ahhh, love it!

seeing as they'll have a summer baby, i think raegun's little gingham sunsuit would be a perfect gift. it comes in a variety of colors so i just need to wait until we find out girl or boy.

and now onto the toys...

i'm saying it now, i do not like plastic toys! i'm a firm believer in the fact that if you give children fewer, really well made, beautiful toys they will start to learn about value and respect right from the get go. with that said, here are my personal favorites...

little sapling toys makes these gorgeous stackers out of maple and walnut. they also have a whole shop full of other beautiful wooden goodies like rattles, teethers, cars and even bowling sets! the great thing about toys is that i can purchase them now! no waiting to find out the sex of the new addition!

ok, don't tell anyone, but i already scooped up this amazing brass knuckle teether/shaker from ecoayris. i know that my brother will just get a kick out of it, and i'm pretty darn sure that he doesn't read this, so i think i'm safe sharing it with you. he's going to have one brutal little baby if i can help it!

i've been in love with this sweet 1930's style wooden truck from the wood garden for quite sometime now. you can teach your kids about good quality toys, and the awesomeness of old cars, all in one shot. fabulous!

what kid doesn't love dinosaurs right? now dinosaurs on wheels, you simply can't go wrong! happy squash toys has so many gorgeous wooden cars and pull toys in their shop, and i just love any shop that is a husband and wife team. i purchased the duck pull toy for my niece this past christmas and it was beautifully and impeccably made. i will certainly be back for more goodies!

and just one last gift, perhaps a little something for my brother. this tiny trinket from humblebea is just the perfect thing. he is an amazing father to one gorgeous girl already, and i know that whether it be a little boy, or little girl that he and my sister-in-law end up having, it is going to be one lucky baby to have parents like them.

oh and who doesn't love the movie right?

Wonderful post. I have to agree about the toys. My favorites to purchase are the handcrafted wooden ones. They don't break either like plastic toys from the toy store. Congratulations on becoming an auntie soon. It is so much fun!

I have my own version of speed-read/skimming and I had a few seconds of thinking you guys were pregnant and I'd get to make you all kinds of baby things! :) Maybe one day?
Congratulations on your new niece/nephew!!! They will be so lucky to have you guys around.
