orin at two months

Orin at two months | photos by Alyson Brown for @unrulythings

oh this boy!! Orin has officially stolen my heart. he is such a sweet baby. and he smiles a LOT. as my mother in law said, he’s got a million dollar smile and I’d have to agree. last week he started playing with a few toys. the toy attachment on his bouncer and his jumper but this little ikea gym is one of his absolute favorites. {it was Wolf’s too!} the other night he was trying SO hard to grab it and got really frustrated because his arms were just out of reach. so I propped him up just a bit under my arms so that he could grab it and when he did – his face lit up in the biggest grin! you could just see how proud he was of him self. made me one happy mama. we really lucked out with him!

little things : orin’s space

little things : orin's space | photography by Alyson Brown for @unrulythings

when I was 17 months pregnant with Orin, I began sleeping in our guest room. once the bump started getting bigger, I was just plain uncomfortable sharing the queen sized bed with Levi. I was using three or four pillows for support and that just didn’t work. plus, we knew this would be the baby’s space once he arrived and I already planned on spending his first few months by his side.

I had many visions of how this space would come together. since this is a shared space, we didn’t want too many baby focused things but rather a simple coordinated look. ultimately the styling revolved around a beautiful vintage kantha blanket I found and it went from there. I just love how bright this space is! indigo blue is one of my very favorite colors and I had fun collecting things to go in the room.

Orin will eventually sleep in his crib but for now he’s sleeping in the moses basket, which was first Wolf’s! {side note – for those of you with more than one kiddo, how fun is it to see hand-me-downs used by your second child?} when he’s ready for his crib, we’ll probably move a twin sized bed into this tiny room so that it’s not jam packed. I hunted and hunted for a simple mobile but didn’t find anything that I liked, or could afford, so I decided to make my own inspired by one I’d found on Pinterest. it was super easy to make and lots of fun to put together. Wolf even helped!

we picked out the Babyletto changing table from Diapers.com since it converts to a dresser once you no longer need the changing portion. the natural wood works so well with the moses basket and I love it’s semi mid-century look. I can see it being in Orin’s room for awhile! the Serena & Lily flokati rug is also from Diapers.com. it’s super soft and cozy and just perfect for playtime.

now that the weather is getting cooler, we’ve been spending a lot of time snuggling in warm knits and under cozy blankets. I got this amazing ace & jig duster from the folks at Accompany. it’s simply perfect for lazy mornings.

winter idea : family movie night in

family movie night in : curated for Accompany by Alyson Brown for Unruly Things

last week we were hit hard with around 10 inches of snow. enough for cabin fever to set in. this week with warmer temps, the roads are crazy icy, leaving us home most nights. which is fine by me! one of my favorite things to do in the winter is to snuggle up on the couch with a blanket, glass of wine and a good movie. it’s even more fun as a whole family. here’s a few things to make the best movie night ever.

one : an alpaca throw to snuggle under / two : olive wood nesting bowls for snacking / three : wine glasses and a nice bottle of wine for mom and dad / four : a cozy bear for the kiddos / five : wool booties for baby / six : wool booties for you / seven : a big pillow for lounging on the floor / eight : hot cocoa for the kiddos from a fun mug

and of course, a good movie or two.
