i took the links on my sidebar down a long time ago, with the intention of updating them. well, that didn't happen, and probably won't - probably because i've got 1000+ unread messages in my google reader, and i just can't keep track of all of the blogs i adore! i'd like to share my newest favorite, though - coos and ahhs. since i found out i was having a boy, i have been dismayed by the terrible options for boy's clothes and toys that are fun and cool, not corny/tacky/ridiculous. why does every little boy need to be a "little slugger"? what about the little boys that like art museums and indie rock? well, coos and ahhs seems to agree, and fills that niche for me while saving me the trouble of hunting down all the good stuff. i mean, really - sometimes i think i wrote the blog, since i agree with her on nearly everything. and she lives in my old neighborhood! bookmark her now, seriously!
