big sis to-be and to-dos

Miss Quey Rose has a shoe fetish. I wonder where she gets it from? ha.
When she gets a new pair of kicks she even wants to wear them while she sleeps. Trying to squeeze the shoes over her footie pjs is a little tricky.
She walked into the work-in-progress baby room & her eyes lit up when she saw the pretty shoes.
Can't believe at one point these were too big for her.

So much to do still... the less-than-three-weeks countdown will be busy.
I moved my studio to the basement and my teal studio will now be our babies room. I ordered this bedding that I am really excited about!!
I found a seamstress that will sew crib bedding out of the king bedding. Since the crib set is sold out but I wanted something to still match the room. I could attempt this project, but let's face it, Quincey's crib bumper is still waiting to be sewed together.

On my shopping list I still need:
-A car seat cover (Does anyone know where to get some cute ones?)
-Baby carrier: (I can't find my Moby Wrap I bought for Quincey that I love. How do you misplace 10 yards of fabric? ;)
-Fresh, white onesies. Oh, my favorite.

Love the Liberty. I purchased several items when the line was introduced in the spring: a bucket hat, scarf and bins. Alot of design pop and zing! Enjoy! I actually thought that I have spotted some fresh Libery prints in your photos but I'm probably wrong!

Kay said...

Sleepy Wrap is the way to go. Me and my friends have done both, and we all prefer the sleepy wrap. Try it....

Shellie said...

There is a kiosk at the Fashion Place Mall (you are in Utah right?) that sells car seat covers. I received one as a gift and I received nothing but compliments. Happy shopping and congratulations!

I just ordered one of these car seat covers and I love it: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Cozy-Cuddly/272906956998
I don't know if this is what you are looking for, but it is great to keep the cold Kansas wind off of my little sweetie....and there are some cute prints (got mine for 1/2 off). I just discovered the moby wrap and LOVE it!

Holly said...

I don't know what exactly you are looking for in a car seat cover, but I got a JJ Cole Bundle Me for my daughter when she was born and LOVED IT!!! It was so cuddly on the bottom and the top! By the way, I love following your blog and can't wait to see your new little girl! Good Luck!

Michelle Laulu said...

Our little boy is due Nov 23 and it has been so much fun following your progress! You have inspired me to have some baby bump pictures taken. As for car seat covers/canopies, I have two in my etsy shop right now, but could make one any color you like. I also make beautiful baby mobiles. See www.MichelleLaulu.etsy.com. Good luck!

Love the bedding you chose, looks a little like one of your Enchanted papers. So exciting to be setting up a nursery for a little girl, such fun things you can do.

HI Liz- Congratulations on your almost new arrival! I was very interested in looking at the car seat canopies you mentioned and checked out the suggestions by your other readers. These are certainly precious and would come in handy while moving baby from place to place (in the mall, at church, in the park, at home, etc. Not to burst anyone's bubble, but I do have to mention that these should not be used while driving in your vehicle. The handle on infant seats should always be put in the down position. Should you get into a crash, the handle in the upright position could harm your baby or become a flying object in the car. "Add ons" to car seats haven't been tested with that seat and therefore are not recommended. Forgive the sermon, but I am a certified child passenger safety technician through SAFE KIDS USA and the National Hwy, Traffic and Safety Admin. and this is the recommendation we give all parents when doing car seat inspections. I do love the canopies and would "so" buy one if mine were still babies. I just had to share my info with you so you can keep your precious girls safe. Best Wishes! Missy

Coco said...

Missy (AKA Reese's Pieces)- I'm like you, only my job was Safety Specialist, so I'm often giving people safety tips. :-) I enjoyed reading yours.

Liz-No worries, things will come together. They always do. for car seat covers I LOVE the cccole carseat covers, and how they replace the need for a snowsuit, which I love. Just a sweater and maybe a blanket and one of those, and they come in great colors. Hopefully you will share pics of the baby's room and your studio--I love decorating and love to see what others' come up with. Coco

Coco said...

Oops- I meant JJ Cole. You can get them a number of places, but I bought mine at BabiesRUs. Since my youngest, they have some really great colors. May I suggest the "sassy" color to a fellow girlie girl? Coco

LISA said...

i am a long time lurker of your beautiful blog! i love your last post, it reminded me of all the ailments i went through with my third & last baby this past year! when i checked out your bedding link, i had to laugh because it's the exact same crib bedding i got for my baby! except i found mine at the thrift store for $12 and it still had the tags on!! i really lucked out, and now it's really hard to find. like you, just glad i don't have to paint the aqua walls!! good luck in the next 3 weeks and have a safe and happy delivery! Lisa

JRC said...

Are you talking about a true car seat cover or car seat canopy? I don't make covers, like the kind that cover where they sit, but I custom make canopies. Email me: legwing@yahoo.com if you want to see pics of what they look like. By custom I mean you can choose your fabric. I also had a question for you about Avery and sugar, I'm worried I might have to call it quits with Cohen's sugar.

Kristy said...

Love the pink little shoes!! I just made a Carrior Canopy for my baby girl to come. I'm due the same time as you. You can check it out here:

mandy said...

Ah, the Moby Wrap--genius product! They're easy to make, too. It only take 5 yards of fabric. You don't even have to serge or hem the edge since it's knit. Just taper down both ends a little for tying. It's a 5 min. project!

Can't wait to "meet" that little sweetie--I'm dying to know her name! :) Good luck with the delivery!

Baird Family said...

So excited for you! Three is the best! LOVE the bedding- it's going to look fabulous in your old studio with the teal walls!!! Can't wait to see it when the new one comes. Make sure and rest lots now :)

Watch out for car seat covers...they're really cute, but our police department said that that they void the warranty of your car seat. They recommended us not using them. :( They sure are cute though.

A new little one is so exciting :) I used a Moby Wrap with my last baby & wished I had discovered it sooner! I passed it along to my sis-in-law who will get lots of use out of it.

brittany said...

oh my, just so cute!

leah said...

Buy another moby, it's worth the money (in case you forgot ;)

Andrea said...

how exciting... this just looks like you!

I bought a great car seat cover from http://www.etsy.com/shop/sewcuteinaz?ref=pr_profile

Great price, good quality, soft minky, cute fabrics... I bought the infant seat cover and just got it to fit on my toddler seat so it will last a long time!

Cason and Marie said...

Can I ask who you found to make your baby bedding? And the price range? I am not loving any that I am finding out there so I wanted to have mine made. If you wouldn't mind emailing me, marieburr@hotmail.com. Thanks!
