10 Things I Love Friday - Baby Edition!

I cant promise this blog isn't going to be taken over a little by baby fever
I haven't a done a 'ten things I love Friday' for so long so I thought it would be a good opportunity to get a little over exited about baby things!
We are very lucky that there is very little we will actually need to buy, Tom's sister has recently had a baby and so we will be able to borrow a lot of bits and pieces from her and my mum has boxes of the most beautiful vintage toys and books. We also have an abundance of clothes in both sexes from family (although we may buy a few special pieces just for fun).
The only thing we don't have is a cot, however this isn't actually going to be an issue for us as we are going to be co-sleeping. We are thinking of possibly buying a co-sleeper attachment like this (not necessarily that model) but it is a middle ground between the two. We have done lots of research on the subject and think that it is definitely for us. My mum actually bought us a book by Dr Sarah Buckley which has a great chapter on Co-sleeping if any of you are interested. Here is an extract.
Despite the fact we dont need much its not going to stop me from gushing at cute baby stuff!
This super cute fox
Frankly this is amazing..ok its $295 worth of amazing so will only be rocking in my dreams!

Congratulations on your fab news! Ooooh you have found some gorgeous baby clothes! Makes me want to get out my sewing machine right now (but i've been told i'm not allowed on such a warm sunny day) - so it'll have to wait until tomorrow.

I've been making baby clothes in excess since my friend had a baby earlier this year and i've been blogging about them here: http://backtobobs.wordpress.com/ And i'm always looking for more projects so if you'd like an outfit for the little bump on the way, i'd be happy to make something for a fellow Bristol lady. :)
