Baby Oliver's Gender Neutral Nursery By Susanna April Photography

Welcome back friends! If you stopped by yesterday then I'm sure your morning was brightened by precious baby Oliver's newborn session by Susanna April Photography.  As promised, I am extending his delightful photo session another day so we can see his charming gender neutral nursery that his "interior stylist" mommy, Laura designed to perfection! Deciding to wait to find out their baby's gender, Laura worked to create a beautiful space that a baby girl or boy would feel right at home in.  Not wanting to go too matchy-matchy, Laura designed the space to reflect sophistication with timeless pieces that are mostly thrifted, custom made or a momentous heirloom passed down. While designing this space, Laura says she was "on the hunt for individual furniture pieces that spoke for themselves".  I love how she chose to combine chic opulence with vintage and kid-friendly elements, creating a simplistic yet bold and elegant feel. This is definitely a well-designed space that baby Oliver will enjoy for many years to come.  Without further ado, let's step inside his beautifully designed and captured eclectic chic baby oasis!

Baby Oliver's Newborn Photo Session At Home By Susanna April Photography

Boy oh Boy, do I have a little cutie pie to share with you today! All the way from Brisbane, Australia, please welcome 3- week old Baby Oliver and his Gorgeous Mommy and Daddy (Laura & Tim) to Fawn Over Baby Blog!

A few weeks ago Laura submitted these precious photos of their new bundle of joy, beautifully captured by her dear friend, Susanna April Photography. With each photo I laid eyes on, I couldn't help but smile at all the cuteness that was filling up my screen.  This charming capture of an afternoon at home with a beautiful new family of three, exuded the overwhelming love and joy they share for one another. There is no feeling like bringing home your new baby for the first time and watching him/her grow each day. It truly is a special moment that photographer Susanna Captured perfectly. I know Laura and Tim definitely feel that as they step into their new roles as mummy and daddy and I know baby Oliver feels nothing but love from his adoring parents. 

If you would like to see where this sweet little prince lays his head at night, stop back by tomorrow as we reveal his Chic Gender Neutral Nursery!  


B. Box Essential Diaper Wallet Review & Giveaway!

Good Morning Monday! For so long, I've always thought of that song "Just Another Manic Monday" by The Bangles when Monday came around. Now that I'm a stay at home mom, I still whistle that same tune just in a much different light. No, I'm not having to jump up at the crack of dawn to get ready for work then sit in morning rush hour traffic just to get  to work and have a long list of to-dos given to me by my boss.  Now, I'm my own boss giving myself a long list of to-dos to help make our week at home run smoothly. From meal planning to house upkeep to entertaining and taking care of our little one, every day is filled with "to-dos". So my Mondays now are just as "manic" as they were when I was out in the wonderful working world. Occasionally, as a treat, my little and I will leave the house to run a few errands. Those days are so nice, just to get out and enjoy a new scenery. However, some of those day can turn ugly fast when my little one wants to run wild in the stores.  Anytime we do leave the house though, I always have our diaper bag in tow.  I used to keep it so organized when McKenzie was first born. Now that she's a toddler, I'm lucky to have one diaper floating around in there. 

If you're anything like me and have constant "mommy-brain" when your on-the-go with baby in tow, I have a wonderful product to share with you today that will help keep you organized and your brain freed up to focus on your current mission at hand. This so-called Time/Room/Sanity Saver that I'm speaking of is The Essential Diaper Wallet from super chic baby brand B.box.  B.box is an amazing, award winning, baby essentials brand created by two talented mommies from Australia. Founders, Danielle and Monique are passionate about creating products that are innovative, uniquely designed and most important "practical". The Essential Diaper Wallet is just one of the many exceptional products that make up the b.box collection.  I have heard and seen a lot of "diaper wallets" out there, however, none of them have compared to this "diaper changing station" in-a-box!

The Award Winning The Essential Diaper Wallet comes in a variety of colors and designs. To stay in the neutral family (just in case we are blessed with a boy "Hesseling" in the future), I chose to receive the "Falling Leaves" design. 

Just a little side-note. This little gem is delivered to you in the most exciting packaging ever! This clear bag with snap enclosure are PERFECT to store an extra pair of your baby's clothing or a wet swimsuit after a day at the pool. I mean, the possibilities are endless! I feel like I get a two for one when anything I buy is packaged in these handy hold-alls! Sorry, I digress - back to the wonderful "Nappy Wallet".

This durable storage box that contains all of your diaper changing must-haves is BPA, Phthalates &  PVC Free. I love that it is made out of this hard casing, as my little sometimes likes to rummage through her diaper bag looking for anything she can get her hands on. The first thing she goes for is the pretty plastic wipe case that I previously carried her wipes in and boy does it take a beating. Now that it is replaced with my new diaper wallet, it's only a matter of time before this becomes a bang -up toy as well.

With this wonderful baby box, you have a place to store plenty of wipes to get your baby through a few days worth of errand runs. One of the dual access wipe hatches is conveniently located at the top for quick and easy access. I sometimes use wipes for cleaning dirty hands, wiping a table top off at restaurants in addition to diaper changing. So I'm a big fan that you don't have to open the entire box to get to these baby friendly cleaners.
Inside the box, you will find your second wipes hatch for re-filling your wipes and a little bit of room to even carry a disposable bag to wrap those pesky dirty diapers before throwing in the trash. 

The bottom portion allows ample room to store one or two diapers and an adorable coordinating changing mat all contained with a well-planned flexible arm to keep everything in place, yet easy to access.

The changing mat is not only adorably coordinated with your baby box, it is also soft allowing for baby to be comfortable during a change and it is easy to wipe clean when you're on the go!

It might even be wise to have more than one to keep in your car or any secondary location that a diaper changing could possibly take place. I know Daddy's would appreciate carrying this diaper "wallet" as well, rather than a big bulky bag.  I know my husband would at least. (this might just be THE product to get daddy willing to take on diaper duty  more often (wink, wink)

Everything you need for a quick diaper change is at your finger tips! I would definitely consider The Essential Diaper Wallet a "Must Have" on all baby essentials lists and would recommend this product to every mommy and daddy I know! TWO THUMBS UP!
