Whinery Baby #3 Registry, Celebrating Valor Oct 10th

Arrival Date November 26, 2020

Hi, friends & fam! We are so excited for our newest little love. Another boy called Valor! I can’t believe it. He is due on Thanksgiving day (but I am estimating he’ll arrive some time in December).

Gerald and I have many things we tucked away from our first two sons (Quinn & Emrys) but there are some things we have passed along through the years and are now needing again.

We are also needing some seasonally appropriate/warm clothing as the older boys were both born in spring/early summer.

Valor In theory would be fitting in...

0-3 Dec-March

4-6 April-Jun

7-9 Jul-Sept

10-12 Oct-Dec

but I doubt it since Q was enormous from the start and Emrys was only slightly smaller but still moosey so that’s something to be mindful of. 😄 EEK!

For reference, Quinn was over 10 pounds at birth and Emrys was 12 pounds by 5 weeks.

I try to be very mindful of the products and ingredients we bring into the home to use on the kids and ourselves. We also cloth diaper so really don’t need any diapers. That said, we were gifted a ton of NB diapers recently so if that is still your preferred way to bless us, size 1 and up would not be turned away but it’s also not necessary.

Everything baby related/post delivery would truly be a great blessing. I tried my best to give options to the list if your love language is gifts but also utilized the must have feature. Meals are also a huge help!

There are multiple options of specific things we will only need one of (like with the baby gate or the play gym) or only need a handful of (like with the warm clothes - we surely don’t need all the asked for pieces but uh SO CUTE).

Bonus items would be like more books or items for the older brothers in this transition period. Quinn will be in school most of the week day but Emrys is still at home with me exclusively. Educational activities for them to work on if I am busy with babe or for some great one-on-one mommy and son time when the baby is sleeping or things that make cleaning fun for them would be incredible but seasoned parents, if you have other ideas we are always open to that too.

We also happily receive hand-me-downs/gently used items from you/thrift stores.

Oh, and his nursery theme if you want to tap into that is Mountains & Adventure. His book is The Fellowship of the Ring. 🤓

We can’t wait to celebrate our newest little guy with you at our Sprinkle! Gift or no gift we want you there so please keep that in mind.

Xoxo, Mariah

P.S. a note from my lovely friend Amber hosting our Sprinkle:

“If you're new to the idea of a Sprinkle over a Shower, it's all about the mother. Some ideas to dote on Mariah include a freezer meal, chocolate (dark), lattes, hanging herbs/plants, and books for mom and baby. You may want to bring a personalized gift for Valor or something for the 2 older brothers in this transition. Of course classic gifts or simply your shining face would mean SO much to Mariah.”

She isn’t wrong 😉 I can’t wait to see your face!! It’s honestly been too long.
