if there’s one thing I LOVE about dressing boys, it’s dressing them in stripes. and now that I have two boys, matching stripes is even cuter. we’ve always been big fans of the clothing from Hanna Andersson – a Portland-based children’s company with Swedish roots. we especially love the pjs. they’re super soft, come in perfect colors and they’re 100% pure organic cotton. so when they offered to send us some matching pjs for Orin and Wolf, naturally I couldn’t have been more thrilled and had a lot of fun snapping photos of these two sweet boys.

if you haven’t heard of Hanna Andersson, check out their site as well as on Facebook and Instagram, too.

bite + sip : black bean quinoa chili

bite + sip : black bean quinoa chili | unruly things

after Orin was born, we were showered with meals from friends and I can’t tell you how nice it was not to have to think about cooking. seriously – I hardly cooked one meal for the first month of Orin’s life! our friends brought all kinds of vegetarian meals: burritos, soup, pizza, and my favorite – this black bean quinoa chili. it’s SO easy, SO good and makes a TON. it may be my go-to meal for those lazy cooking days. try it – it’s a must!

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.
