We’re in the process of building a house and as its completion date gets closer I’m getting so anxious to move in, not just to enjoy our own space, but I really want our stuff back! It’s been in storage for months now and I’m longing to be around all my familiar things again. Some of my favorite items that I’m missing are my children’s bedroom furniture. My little one’s Oeuf Sparrow bedroom furniture is some of my most favorite. Though if I were in the market for a bed for him today, I’d have to consider the River Twin Bed ($740).
I love any furniture pieces that can do double duty (or more!) and with a trundle ($300) and the built-in bench, this is a really practical and beautiful piece.
It coordinates with any other Oeuf furniture pieces for easy mixing and matching of whatever furniture combination you need.
Blue for a boy? With a paint color named “Baby Boy Blue,” how can you resist? But even a nursery with white and a soft cool blue, this nursery isn’t ordinary or boring. With a rug like the Chontal Rug from Lulu & Georgia, how could it be? After selecting the blue color and the rug, the rest of the room came together on our Baby Boy Blue Nursery Inspiration pin board. We’ve got some curtain and crib sheet options over there as well as some additional decor ideas to further round out your space. Let me know if this is the nursery for you! If not, we’ve got all our boards in one spot on Pinterest, so you may find your inspiration there.

Congratulations to Jenn S., the winner of our 4moms bounceRoo giveaway, who plans to give the bounceRoo to a friend who is expecting her first child!
Congratulations Jenn! I just emailed you. Your friend is sure to love her new bounceRoo– what a lucky friend!
Thanks to 4moms for this fun giveaway.
A Manny & Simon push toy is pretty much a requirement for any modern nursery (just search our archives to prove it!), so I know their teethers are going to be standard for any well equipped toy box and diaper bag.
We got to preview the teethers ($14) at last years ABC Kids Expo, but I really love the shakers ($24) as well.
Illuminated, they have the look of lighting in a storm cloud, one of those spectacular sights you get to experience maybe a couple times a summer for a few seconds at a time. The clouds come in two sizes for $73 – $95 each. An array of three clouds is pictured above.
We introduced the 4moms bounceRoo a couple weeks ago but we’re going to have a little fun this week and share one with one of our readers!
The bounceRoo is the only bouncer with unique vibration modes and intensity settings to help calm and soothe babies. The lightweight, portable and compact design is battery-operated and easy to collapse, making it easy to move around the house or take on-the-go. It comes with a toy mobile with three reversible toys, an easy-to-remove, machine washable seat fabric and a 20-minute automatic vibration shut off feature.
According to 4moms CEO Rob Daley, “The bounceRoo is a dramatic improvement over the traditional bouncer – the unique vibration modes offer parents a better way to soothe their baby and the sleek design is something they will be excited to have in their home.”
I would have been much more excited to have this than the $30 cartoony wire seat that we made do with! Our giveaway winner will be a bit more fortunate than myself.
You can enter to win a bounceRoo plush of your choice (retail value $119.99) from 4moms via the rafflecopter app below. Note: this sweepstakes is open to US resident over the age of 18 only. It starts right now and ends August 28th, 2015 at noon EST. Good luck!

Which items are you most excited about?
Being Star Wars fans ensures that I love them forever, but with the help of DwellStudio founder Christiane Lemieux, Tiffani Theissen and her husband Brady Smith have the most luxe Star Wars nursery in history. Yes, the Star Wars references are minimal, but that’s part of the beauty of it.

Today was our first day back to school. I thought it was early this year, but according to my Facebook feed, there were plenty of districts that have already started.
Celebrate your back-to-school (or get the little ones excited to start in the future) with this ABC Pencil Pillow from Jumping Birds. They’re still on their summer vacation but will be back any day now!
When does you kiddo start school?
