Nicole Kidman’s Secret Baby!

Wow talk about keeping a secret! Turns out in news today that Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban have a new family member! A little girl named Faith Margaret was born on December 28th! Top reason why no one knew about her? Because she was born via surrogate. (She is however 100% the couple’s biological daughter.)

“Our family is truly blessed, and just so thankful, to have been given the gift of baby Faith Margaret,” Kidman, 43, and Urban, also 43, said in a statement. “No words can adequately convey the incredible gratitude that we feel for everyone who was so supportive throughout this process, in particular our gestational carrier.”

Congrats to the family and to another baby boomer!

They just keep coming!

Yesterday I posted the long and pending list of celebrities expecting in 2011 and as if she didn’t want to be left out, my lovely vegetarian favorite Alicia Silverstone came out today with news that she too, is also expecting her first child in the upcoming year. Holy guacamole! I feel as if every week (almost every day it feels like!) another celebrity (or person we know) is confessing to doing the baby dance. I wasn’t kidding about that baby boom! Here’s to Alicia and her future vegan baby!

Baby Boom 2011!

It is the 1960s all over again people. Every turn I take it seems as if someone else is announcing their pregnancy. In my own world it seems as if a gazillion of people just made known their pregnancy. Facebook, classmates, coworkers, etc. Everyone is expecting. And Hollywood is no exception.

Fashion for the Wee Ones

Cute baby clothes will be the death of me. As many of my friends have babies or become pregnant I have developed a habit for checking out the baby section at all stores I enter. (Something that I have always liked to do but thought was weird when I was a single gal with single gal friends with no kiddies. Now I have an excuse!) As I graze the clothes racks I fall deeper and deeper into a strange new love with children and baby attire. Is it possible that baby clothes are more engaging than adult clothes? Yes. Everything is more darling pint sized. It’s also fun because they can get away with wearing things that us adults can no longer wear, like polka dotted leggings or tutus and other non necessary delightful things. While I am very addicted to little girls clothes, the boys have lovable duds too-little rocker tees and hats with mohawks. So f-ing adorable. I think I may need one of my own real soon so I can indulge in this shopping madness! Here are some charming things I have found lately that are too good to keep to myself. *If wondering where an item is from, scroll over the picture and it will inform you!*

Holy cuteness Batman!  Some of the things that I have found lately are on familiar store sites, like TargetOld Navy (which really gives you bang for your buck), Gymboree (which surprisingly I am really loving) and of course, the infamous The Baby Gap (you can’t go wrong, especially if you have money). A new one that I had never known about is American Eagle’s baby line which is also really “ohh” and “aww” worthy.

However there are some kick butt sites out there too that have large and in charge sites fully devoted to making your kid the cutest baby on the freaking playground. Urban Baby carries this too cute onesie for little Donnie Darkos and other goodies like numerous plaid shirts (your baby will too look as good as Robert Pattinson) and other sweet graphic tees.

OMG. For cute a$$ Beatle shirts, super hero onesies, Dr. Seuss themed outfits and retro style baby clothes,  you can go to The Retro Baby which is full of the most cheek pinching worthy outfits a kiddie can have. Oy. I love it. Love love love.

For political babies who would like to speak their minds or have no choice in the matter of displaying what is on their parent’s mind, go to Baby Wit which showcases many baby clothes embroidered with political messages (among other things).

Lastly one has to go to Punk Baby Clothes which is a misleading name since they have way more than “punk” baby clothes. They carry the most extensive collection of baby rock band, hip hop group, pop artists, hippie, etc. clothes I’ve ever seen. You can search in their “reggae baby” section or even the “gothic baby” section. Too funny…and adorable.

Here’s to babies…making this world cuter each and every day!
