About Me



It's the little things that make life that much sweeter. No matter what stage of my life, I always seem to find excitement in the small things, a career in my 20s, our wedding in my 30's and now Baby.

I am a believer in Jesus, Prayer and the Bible. I am wife to my amazing husband, Ryan and a happy mommy to our beautiful daughter McKenzie and our sweethearted baby boy Haines. They are the light of our lives and we feel so blessed that God chose us to be their parents.

When I became pregnant with McKenzie, the thought of having to be perfectly prepared was so daunting and a little scary.  With a long list of to-do's, I turned to the online world of all things baby. Thank goodness for those innovative minds out there that have inspired and motivated me to create a bright and beautiful world to bring our daughter home to. With so many wonderful inspirations to choose from, I began collecting a few a lot of my favorites and now I am excited to share them with you!

Welcome to Fawn Over Baby!  From Baby Nursery to Baby's First Birthday Design, there are so many creative ideas that I can't wait to share with you all.  I'm hoping my favorite finds and my occasional DIY attempts will inspire those who love to Fawn Over Baby too.


Feel Free to Follow Fawn Over Baby on Facebook, Instagram,  and Twitter & Pinterest!

UPDATE: We introduced our very own Fawn Over Baby shop on Etsy and would love for you to come visit us! Our shop consists of a variety of montessori inspired handmade wooden toys that encourage developmental growth in a natural and beautiful way without overstimulation.

    1. Hi Allison!,
      I thought I replied a while back, I guess it didn't go through. Sorry for the delayed reply. I am originally from Louisiana, however, grew up in Houston, Texas. It was quite an adjustment but I'm definitely going to miss certain things about Alaska. Our amazing mountain view for one, lol! :)
      Thank you so much for following along :)

  5. Hi Melissa,

    I wanted to tell you that I love your blog. I found your site on google while trying to search for a neutral baby girl nursery. Were expecting our little girl in September. I love how you decorated your guest bedroom and your nursery as one. Thats exactly what we have to do with our room as well. You truly did a wonderful job. I love how the colors feel soft and warm. Your blog will be one that I will be following from now on. I wanted to ask you, what is the name of paint color you chose for your daughters nursery?

    1. Hi Elizabeth! Your sweet words just made my day!! We worked so hard on creating multi-functional space that our daughter and guest would feel comfortable in.
      We do not have the color anymore and I'm not 100% on the name. It is a Valspar brand. I believe the color name is "iced chocolate".
