little boy love / inspiration board


i could go on and on about how much i think about little boys; the fact that we will have two bouncing around this place makes me so happy. i can't help but dream up shared bedrooms, imagine tiny clothes and diapers lying around, and hoping benji can help swaddle his brother. i am in one moment trying to enjoy every second of the just benji stage while, the next moment, anticipating (and planning) life with another!

just yesterday i sat at the kitchen table (warm spring sunshine filtering in) with the back door open watching benji and his cousin scoot around on bikes, mark up our garbage cans with chalk and play soccer together in the backyard. benji kept his helmet on the whole time explaining that he was a construction worker man. after working so hard, they decided they were getting thirsty. i officially became the watering station with cup fulls of endless drinks. i love watching their imaginations grow. i am constantly wanting to write down every little thing he says and does. like when i gave them string cheeses, their sweaty little bodies sitting down to rest on the steps, and they knocked their cheese sticks together saying, cheers!!

Adorable! Thanks for the links. I remember seeing that mini onesie before but forgot about it until I saw it again here! We are having a little girl August 4th but I drive a mini cooper and she needs that onesie. hehe

I love all of those items, especially the wagon bookshelf. There is nothing better than two little boys!

It's a few years away yet (as far as I know ;) but you make me long to be a mom.

That string cheese story is adorable. I love having a little boy too - it's constantly hilarious. Where do they get the energy?

So cute Marta. You know how big a fan I am of little boys. They really are so much fun and I love all of your cute little boy finds. Benji is going to be such a fun big brother. I can't wait to hear about all the adventures he'll get to have with his baby brother!

I have three children: 2 girls and a boy. Everyone told me, "oh it is so different with boy" but I didn't really believe them...but it is. Not a bad different, just different. I could eat up my little every moment and I can only imagine your excitement to have another buoyant boy bouncing around! We have the Melissa and Doug car transporter (thanks, Santa) and my son plays with it over any of his other trucks. Even little ones have aesthetic tastes! Congrats, again to you and your family.

We have that darling Melissa & Doug semi. It is a daily-played with toy. Cute collection of boy things. I'm so glad you are getting another. It is so great having two in a row.

I love boys--I also have two--and I'm excited for you entirely. So it is only with love that I tell you that boys don't bounce. They bash. Loudly.
And it's great.
Enjoy. And good luck. :)
