One of my college roommates is a professional genealogist. Knowing my interest in baby names, she sent me a list of names she’d run across in her research that used to be solely last names but, over the years, have morphed into first names for girls.
As someone with a last name for a first name myself (Janssen – the vice-president of Sears and Roebuck the year I was born), I love seeing other last names that have taken on new life as first names.
I know someone with almost every one of the names on this list as a first name!
Having now decorated three nurseries (one in Texas and now two in North Carolina), I’ve come to recognize that a bedding set is one of the easiest ways to pull a baby’s room together.
These five sets, featuring some of Disney’s most beloved characters, are the perfect starting point for your little one’s bedroom:
All the baby books are full of milestones for little ones — a first tooth, learning to crawl or walk or jump, early talking, and cognitive development.
But after a while, I started to recognize that I was growing into my role as a mother and that there were milestones for me too!

I love crib sheets. They are such a fun way to add some color and pattern to a nursery, and there are so many available, from very basic to bright and busy! Plus, even if you have no other bedding, it gives the crib an “on-purpose” look.
I used to have two for my baby’s crib so that I could wash one (or have a back-up in case of an emergency), but then my older daughter moved to a toddler bed and now both crib sheets are in constant rotation, so I’ve been on the lookout for some new ones. The only upside to having just one for each bed is that I never have to figure out how to fold them!
I was surprised to see what a good-sized collection Disney Baby has and how CUTE they were! I guess I’ll have to get a couple:
