a rocker

I was highly unproductive this weekend, in terms of having anything interesting to show yous, but sometimes it goes like that. I’m embracing my time to be unproductive while I can.

We did do like 1 million errands though, which always feels nice. And made a grand master list of all the things we want to get done pre-baby.

And I found our rocking chair.

The Risom Rocker from DWR. yayyy.

I’m of the belief that one should not fill one’s house with things for baby that you wouldn’t like to have in your house if you didn’t have baby (stroller and crib and some other necessities notwithstanding). Especially when it comes to plastic things, but that’s a different topic altogether. I know we need a rocker, but I just cannot stomach one of those huge poofy lazy-boy-for-moms upholstered gliders. Apologies to anyone who has and loves theirs, I’m sure they’re terrifically functional, but they make me want to throw up a little. If we’re going to buy a rocking chair, I want it to be a chair that we will enjoy in our home forever, not just while I’m nursing 12 hours a day. Naive? Probably, but let me exist in my fantasy world while I can.

It’s expensive, and we might not end up getting it. But I’d rather spend a little more on a beautiful piece of furniture that we will keep for always. Plus I haven’t even tested it out yet. Of our 1 million errands, none took us past a DWR. So that is a project for this week. Maybe the floor model with be on sale.

We’re going to end up blowing our entire baby budget on our rocker and our stroller, but really, aside from diapers and a breast pump, what more do we need for the first 6 months?

Also, I purchased my first official piece of maternity apparel. Milestone! I am so thankful that I live in the age of premium denim. Those poor moms who had to come before us were forced to wear hideous jeans throughout their entire pregnancy. And it turns out maternity jeans are super comfy! Perfect for airplane rides! I think everyone should have a pair. They’re like denim sweats.

    That rocker is absolutely beautiful! We spent a quite a bit on our rocker as well, but it's been worth every penny… buy that gorgeous rocker, I say!

    We had a "glider" with our first and I never sat in it. Thank goodness I only paid $99 for it. I fed the girl out on the couch, so I never needed it. That being said, I would LOVE to have that rocker now that we're trying for our 2nd. It looks totally relaxing!

    These are gorgeous choices! You might also spend some time poking around in thrift stores. Some of the vintage wooden rockers are lovely, although they aren't quite as modern looking.

    Baby clothes. But one shower and your pretty much set in that department, right?

    Oooh, I love that rocker! Very, very nice.

  7. Simply Mel said on October 19, 2009

    Hilarious! We were the exact same way when it came to a rocker…in fact, we never could find one, so I never had one for my little one. It turned out to be okay since she was just happy in my arms sans any rocking. The short story – we fell in love with the Don-Do rocker, once we priced it, $10K, and it was hand made to order in Italy!

    Needless to say, all you need is a loving heart, to welcoming arms, and lots of patience and understanding!

    Our little girl is now 20 months, and she has never had ONE plastic toy, our home is free of all the bright colored, head-ache inducing swings, chairs, toys, etc. We did it 'old school' – just love, warmth, and a cozy home. And amazingly (to all those who said we needed to register for all that 'crap' at the baby stores0, we never needed it or felt like we missed out on anything, she is beyond happy, strong, creative and resourceful and loves being outdoors in nature discovering all the 'toys' it offers.

    Totally form over funtion or the other way around! You will have that piece forever, think investment for the house. LOVE.

    I love the rocker- and I agree- you can still have good taste with a baby in the house! I actually used a cool old wooden rocker.

    You wouldn’t be where you are now if you did that, right.
    In fact, this is one of the most common reasons why relationships
    fail. Remember, you are trying to hook up with this girl, not audit
    her taxes.

    forced me to take a look at and do it! Your writing style has been surprised me.
    Thank you, very great post.

    Excellent way of describing, and fastidious paragraph to obtain facts on the topic of
    my presentation subject, which i am going to present in school.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and amusing, and let me tell
    you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy I came across this in my hunt for something
    relating to this.

    Most exotic pets can be considered small but,
    their housing, care and feeding may involve quite a bit more than you are
    willing to apply. * Airlines will require pet owners to show
    a health certificate of their pet that dates within 10 days before the flight.
    But just like everything else, taking too much of these natural substances could result
    to very serious health consequences.

    On your own stereo, make sure you don’t have your speaker wires crossed anywhere, as it is
    very easy in all the confusing mass of wires to actually hook a connection back onto itself.

    Everything said made a lot of sense. However, what about this?
    suppose you were to write a awesome title? I am not saying your information is not solid, but suppose
    you added something to possibly grab a person’s attention? I mean a rocker – Lovely Morning
    is a little vanilla. You ought to peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create article
    titles to get viewers to click. You might add a related video or a related picture or
    two to grab people interested about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it would bring your blog a
    little bit more interesting.

    Many consumers are also under the impression that supplements are
    inherently ‘natural’ and safe, but the lack of regulation surrounding the testing, manufacturing, and labeling of supplements can lead to potentially harmful products.
    Excess consumption of zinc may cause bleeding stomach and severe abdominal pain. What’s more, the global supplement market is
