Archives for July 2012
Is anyone tired of this outfit? Because I am…
How far along: 35 weeks
Size of Baby C: 5.25 lbs, 18+ inches
Fruit/vegetable comparison (according to Baby Center): Honeydew
Total weight gain: 15 lbs.
Sleep: Just the
past week I’ve been waking up around 3am with a throbbing back. Maybe this is my body preparing me for life with a newborn? Either way, I’m just thankful that I got 34 weeks of good sleep!
Movement: Tons. We were cracking up in church on Sunday
because it’s like she was dancing to the choir music. It was pretty good that day though 🙂
Unglamorous body changes: Nothing new here.
Maternity Clothes? Same as usual. Maternity workout capris and tank tops during the week, and sundresses on the weekend. I’m kind of tired of
all the same outfits but I’m also way too cheap to buy any more maternity
Showing: At the mall last week, a girl checking me out said
“Aw, just starting to get that cute little bump!” And in my head I was
thinking, “If only you knew I was due next month” 🙂 But yes, definitely showing. I think we had a
major growth spurt this past week!
Food cravings: I bought another crate of TCBY
frozen yogurt. Oops.
What I miss: Sushi!!!!
Strange experiences: Dreaming about doing “the worm“…2 nights in a row. What in the world?!?
Milestones: Most of her basic physical development is now complete — she’ll spend the next few weeks putting on weight.
Best moment this week: 1. Maternity Pictures. Our
photographer was wonderful and we had so much fun! 2. Getting to see our baby again at an
ultrasound on Wednesday. My belly has measured a week behind for the last 3
weeks, so my doctor wanted to take a closer look just to make sure everything was fine. Good news is that she was actually measuring ahead of schedule and they estimated her weight at 5lbs 11oz…plus she was head-down! It was such a relief to see her again and just know that everything is normal. 3. My prenatal massage. Just Heavenly.
Looking forward to: Touring the hospital tomorrow and finishing up all of our classes. We took infant care last week and learned a lot…including the fact that we need to practice up on our swaddling. 🙂
It’s no secret that I have a passion for old things. I would honestly decorate my whole house in vintage floral fabric if it was socially acceptable. Turns out it’s not…but it is the perfect look for a baby girl’s room 🙂 So other than the main furniture, curtains and bedding, the majority of the things in the room came from antique stores and flea markets. Some pieces needed painting and a little TLC, while others were perfect just the way they were.I’m so proud of this space and I know Chris is too (he should be after all the hard work he put in to the walls!) We wanted it to be cozy, comfortable, sweet and vintage–and I think we’ve accomplished just that.
I hope she loves it as much as we do…
I always find myself wandering in here for no reason other than to sit in the glider and daydream. The “Newborn Nursery” scent coming from my Scentsy warmer really gives it the full effect too. Thanks Mom 🙂
We ended up getting the same glider that my sister-in-law has because I remember sitting in it when Luke was born…I’m not kidding you, it’s like floating on a cloud! I think that will make the long nights that we have ahead seem a little bit shorter…or at least more comfortable.
After a couple months of searching, I finally found the perfect bookshelf at an antique mall nearby. The only problem was that the shelves were a little saggy, so Chris cut some thick plywood and I covered it with pretty scrapbook paper and mod podge. I like the fact that we’ll be able to change that in case we ever want to use it elsewhere.
Then of course, there’s the crib…
You didn’t think I could decorate this room without something French Bulldog-related, did you? My friend spotted it at HomeGoods in St. Louis and snatched it right up. Now Hazel will be properly represented!
Recognize this piece, Missy?! 🙂
So maybe I’m a little milk-glass obsessed…
The doily bunting is one of my favorite parts of the nursery. It was a fairly easy project and I love the sweet and delicate look it gives the room…
This print just makes me happy.
My mom was a huge help in finding all of the details for the room. Sometimes we were together and sometimes she was sending me pictures from her phone, which were usually followed by a text from me: “GET IT–I’ll pay you back!!!”
Do you want to know what else my mom is responsible for?
Most of THIS…
However, I have to admit that it does make me pretty excited 🙂
This girl on the other hand? Excited might not be the right word.
Well, now you’ve seen it all!
The only thing that could make me love this room more would be if it had a little person in it. Soon enough! 🙂
