Our little girl will soon make her appearance into the world and slowly but surely bows and lace are finding their way into our home. Mostly thanks to Auntie Erin for sending these precious outfits and burp cloth set. I did pick up these cute grosgrain bows at a craft store in Kentucky and I’ve also purchased a few things on eBay and online sales. Her Aunt Kelly also gave her a darling Zutano outfit for Christmas to ensure she have a bright pink outfit in her closet upon her arrival!
It’s so hard to believe I’m already 31-weeks! I was far more prepared for Jack’s arrival at this point but we’re getting there. We are making only a couple of minor changes to the nursery. We’re considering changing the window treatments. We are definitely adding a big plush chair and ottoman, similar to the one below but in a different fabric. I’m waiting to receive a few swatches from the manufacturer. Our cherished wooden rocker will go into Jack’s new room.
The baby will also get her own quilt, personalized pillow, and matching baby book. She will also get a few new stuffed animals of her very own. Jack will take a few of his favorites with him into his new room.
We are designing a new “Big Boy” room for Jack. The fabric below was my first purchase for his room. The theme of his room is “Travel Around The World.” We’re doing a giant world map, a big vintage red barron airplane to hang, and his new train table is already in room. He loves all modes of transportation and I wanted a room that would grow with him for years to come. We are only using one twin bed right now but in the new house we will use both of the twin beds we have for him. They were Joe’s uncle’s beds first and then his. I love when furniture has a story behind it and I especially love mixing old furniture with new.
There’s a little update for you on what’s going on here. I have a long to-do list and it’s challenging when I’m limited on the amount of activity I can do in a day. Thankfully I have help and the Internet! We want to make sure our little girl stays put for at least 6 more weeks.
