B is for Blankets, Books, and Baby!

Although I started this project way back in January,
I finally finished it a couple weeks ago
and couldn't wait to show it off!

So without further ado, here it is...
baby girl's first blanket.

I made it using this pattern that I found on Pinterest.

It was surprisingly easy,
especially before my hands swelled up like balloons this past month.

To add to baby girl's nursery
the hubs and I took a trip to the bookstore the other night
to stock up on some books for her growing library.
I loved reading when I was growing up
and hope to foster that in our her, as well.

Where The Wild Things Are is a classic 
that every kid needs to have.

The Pig Kahuna is something we found
when shopping for a shower gift for a friend.
Living in Southern California and having a surfer for a dad,
this book will fit in well in baby girl's library.

And lastly we bought Splish, Splash, Splat 
simply because the drawings are so darn cute.

I can just picture reading her a story every night at bedtime.

Did you have a favorite book from childhood?


  1. Where the Wild Things Are is my absolute favorite children's book!
    Love that blanket! Beautiful!!

  2. Aside from WTWTA... Dr. Seuss books were always a staple for me.

  3. That is by far the neatest blanket ever I love it! xo

  4. That blanket is so cute! Very impressive.
