Mini Piccolini! a family lifestyle blog

It’s Friday!

As Double Stroller Week draws to a close (thank you for all your very helpful input!), I am happy to be crossing one decision off my Preparing for 2Under2 list, and am ready to get started on our next big project – the nursery! So starting on Monday I will be getting into it.

We have a small and sort of dark guest room off our kitchen that is going to be Baby #2′s room. It needs to be brightened up and made into a happy harmonious room for our special little boy or girl. I can’t wait to get started!

Until then – here are some non-nursery related links that I thought you might like. Have a fabulous weekend!

These washcloth bunnies are so cute and actually don’t seem that had to make.

I love this fabric printing idea using fruit. The onesie is just adorable!

When we were struggling with Alec’s day sleep but weren’t ready to follow-the cry it out advice we kept getting, we really found Elizabeth Pantley’s No-Cry Nap Solution (and No-Cry Sleep Solution) helpful. I know she has no-cry books on other topics, but I haven’t read them yet. So I was so happy to find this cliff notes summary of the No-Cry Discipline Solution.

This Backyard Play Area is so fabulous! It’s actually a lot bigger than it looks, so take a closer look and be inspired here!

Homemade baby food never looked this good!

I love these DIY Flower Seed Pockets – they would make such a fabulous gift.

I find these pictures so moving. A sibling relationship like the one these two minis seem to have is EXACTLY what I hope for my children, and it’s the main reason why we decided to have our children close together. Any tips to achieve this?

    mini P — as always such a nice site and collection — (oh, if I were expecting another little bambino!) I just want to share that I have “3 in 3 years” and my husband and I are always saying that it’s the best thing we’ve ever done! We’ve never had the sibling rivalry issues because the kids honestly can’t remember a time without one another. The sleeping photos are definitely everyday scenes. I am so happy for you. A real positive that I wasn’t prepared for, a we moved from 1 baby to 2: a baby sleeps. A baby sleeps a lot and that means you honestly have time to shower your toddler with attention. The period where we went from one to two was honestly one of the most wonderful, parent-child moments we had in our relationship. I was so relieved when I realized that during sleeping time, it was big brother time; they loved playing with one another from the moment that could happen and I also found that with two, I could easily coordinate their naps — for Mommy recovery time, too.

      Gina this is so encouraging to hear! We keep hearing how difficult it’s going to be and it’s easy to get bogged down in those kinds of thoughts. It’s so nice to read your experiences with three close together! Thank you!
