Babies of The Future

Living in the Windy City and being an urban kid has its perks, but most of the time it means we live in condos, and high rises and have smaller living spaces to run and play. 
While shopping for baby "must haves" mom kept that in mind while also wanting to maintain a chic vibe. 
Insert the Bloom Fresco Highchair! 
This high chair gained notoriorty on the hit show "Keeping up with the Kardashians" when Kourtney purchased it for her then newborn son Mason.  The highchair accomodates a child from birth all the way up to 5 years, as it transitions from a newborn lounger (at table height- yes please!) to a traditional highchair to a regular chair! The base can swivel and be lowered or raised depending upon the height of your table! Not to mention you can customize the chair to your own tastes! The base comes in black, white, chrome and Dark Chrome- you can also choose the color for your inserts ranging from neon pink to black snakeskin! 
My mom went to the basics when she chose the color combo for my fresco! Black and grey snakeskin insert! 
You can purchase your very own Bloom Fresco Highchair in Chrome or Silver on Giggle
or if you are local in Chicago stop in Galt Baby

Daddy's Night Out

I decided to take Andrew on a "Daddy Date"  before Baby arrived, a one last special date night that was just about him, the things he likes and the food he loves. 
Soon our lives will be filled with goo-goo's,  ga-ga's  and the pitter patter of little feet and somewhere those date nights will be a distant memory and our old lives will be lost in translation. As we much look forward to and anticipate our new life as parents I wanted to embrace our life right now, the life that we share just the two of us.
I surprised Andrew with his favorite bottle of Scotch, his go to tater chips, tickets to Aziz Ansari comedy show at the Chicago Theatre and dinner at one of our favorite date night spots Cafe Ba Ba Reeba in Lincoln Park. 
I know he was surprised and I was so happy to do this for him. The spotlight has been on me and everything baby- and I wanted to remind him just how special he is to me, and how much he is a part of this too! 
Tell me what have you done for your special somebody before welcoming baby?
