So, my little family and I live in a very small, very old apartment in Providence, Rhode Island. Living in the city, we're very tight on space. Living in a Victorian apartment, we have very little storage! So we've tried doing the minimalist thing with this kid. With Rowan, we were living with my mom who was by herself in a five bedroom house. Not only did Rowan have his own HUGE room, but we had play rooms and closet space so we had to have ALL the baby things. Of course, seven years later, we don't have those baby things anymore, so we've started from scratch. My sister was kind enough to throw a little baby sprinkle for me yesterday, and it went well. I got some of the important small items, so all I have to do now is get my car seat, order some bedding for the mini crib, and we'll see what we need from there. Other than that, I've bought my Grayson Mini crib, cube shelf, some clothes, diapers and whipes, breast feeding accessories, and we're gonna wing it from there because well, space is limited and it's only just a wee person! Here's a photo of baby boy's nook in our bedroom. Not too shabby for a cramped space.

Thank you! The two owl paintings my sister ordered for me from Pier 1. I believe there are three to choose from. The art on the other wall is painted by my friend/tattoo artist.

Adorable! The perfect quiet spot for baby


It's amazing how much space you really don't need. When we had #1 we lived in a tiny NYC apt and all he got was a what we loving referred to as the "nook" which was basically his crib/changing area in a small hallway in our bdrm. The only thing I found annoying was not being able to store lots of diapers!

Yes!! I bought this blanket from a little shop down the street! A Swedish lady hand made it! I love it.




Thanks for all the compliments! I'm thinking of working on a hand made mobile to hang from the ceiling too. I really don't like the ones I've seen in stores! Dream catcher maybe?
