little things : Orin’s first bath

Unruly Things for Seventh Generation

last week we gave Orin his much belated first bath, one day short of him turning a month old!! time seriously flew by. his expression as we dunked his little body into his warm little tub was priceless! but just like his big brother, he loves the water. he was definitely confused at first but was soon totally into it and his face showed it. we lathered him up with our favorite baby wash from Seventh Generation on a super soft wash cloth. we’ve been using Seventh Generation soap for Wolf for as long as I can remember and have really enjoyed it – especially the bubble bath!

needless to say, Orin’s first bath was a big hit. even big brother got to help! he sat on the counter and sang songs for Orin. it was pretty sweet.

say hello to Orin Otto

this handsome little fellow entered our lives in the wee hours of the morning on September 22 after a speedy labor. {more on that soon!} he weighed in at 8lbs even and measured 21 inches long. we’re so in love with this new guy, especially his big brother. Wolf has settled right into the role of big bro seamlessly and gives Orin a million hugs and kisses every day.

new adventures ahead! in the mean time – we’re snuggling Orin and taking in every second.

little things : a wee wishlist

little things : a wee wishlist | unruly things

we’re still playing the “wait for baby” game over here. tomorrow he’ll be a week late! Wolf was ten days late so I can’t say I’m surprised. while I wait, I’ve been putting together little wishlists for him. here’s a few things I’ve recently loved.

one : maileg rattles / two : christopher fischer pirate sweater / three : nature baby knotted beanie / four : striped bib / five : cotton on track pants / six : converse fur lined crib shoes / seven : manny & simon taxi / eight : maileg kitty / nine : land of nod wee workout gym / ten : hanna andersson first socks / eleven : trousselier black crocodile rattle

mama things : leader bag co.

mama things : leader bag co. | unruly things

during my pregnancy with Wolf, I hunted high and low for a stylish diaper bag that I’d feel happy carrying. I never did find one that was specifically a diaper bag and ended up using a simple backpack that worked out just fine, but it was definitely missing that diaper bag element.

enter Leader Bag Co., founded by three sisters-in-law who all had baby boys within the same year. a few months back, I met with one of Leader Bag Co.’s founding mamas, Meghan Nesher, for a sneak preview of their new US-made bag – the Julien Backpack. I was literally drooling over every single detail. they’ve seriously thought of everything when it comes to creating a diaper bag that’s not only stylish, but über functional with all the necessary bells and whistles. it’s hand-crafted of water repellent 14oz duck canvas paired with vegetable tanned leather and a wipe clean nylon interior. each backpack comes with a matching leather change pouch and padded change mat, plus it’s got plenty of pockets and interior space to keep all the stuff you need for baby {or toddler} packed tight.

just perfect, right? the Julien Backpack is now available in limited quantity on their site. I dare you to take a peek and tell me you’re not in love.

little things : scout bedding

little things : scout bedding | unruly things

over the summer we got Wolf a twin sized bed and since then he’s progressed from sleeping with just his blankies to sleeping with a sheet. now that the temps are dropping during the night, it’s getting chillier in his room. and he needs a proper bed cover. for what feels like weeks I’ve been on the hunt for cute “mom-approved” bedding for him. these quilts and duvet covers from Scout are nice. subtle, yet fun.
