meet some of her first friends

Photobucket
the nursery has been coming along. we are working on her dresser now, we've done quite a bit ourselves. when i first found out it was a girl i was slightly worried about the nursery because i have been collecting animal things for an animal theme (for a boy). i checked to see when i ordered those sharon montrose prints and found that i made that purchase over a year ago! anyway i didn't put anything away, i'm still using all of it and just adding some girly details here and there. like this banner. who hasn't fallen in love with everything from confetti system? i love them. i knew i could recreate something similar. it may not look like the exact same thing but either way i'm happy with it. and it was pretty easy. i have a feeling i'll be making LOTS more.

i wanted to make a lot of things myself and i'm doing pretty good so far. i've made two fitted sheets, half of a dress, stuffed pyramids and cubes and some hair pins. i did some embellishing to a few plain onesies too and that was fun. i have a pillow and blanket that are still on the list. i just want her to have so many homemade things. my mom made so many things for me and i love having them now. i hope she will too.

baby registry was cool but so long. pretty overwhelming to be honest. we are no further on a name. in fact i don't even know when we last talked about names. i think i'm just going to accept that she won't have a name right away. i just want to see her little face. she is kicking like crazy lately. as in kicks so hard it wakes me up. i wish so badly i could see what she is doing in there. she is so crazy! she's been getting hiccups a lot and at first i thought it was funny, now i just feel bad and want them to go away for her. poor girl.

30 weeks yesterday. which translates to 7 1/2 months. i have 9 weeks and 6 days till her due date. i will try to put up a pic of the bump soon.... we just need to take one first :) i hope to do a lot of updating soon because we have been very very busy.

i love the animals and banner! so cute! i can't wait to see what else you've been doing! i can't believe you're 30 weeks. holy cow. so exciting! ah! i'm just so excited for you!

Brittny said...

How cute are you??!! I love the theme you are going for! I can't believe you ever said that you weren't sure how to dress/decorate for a girl! You are fabulous!

I also love the idea of you making so many handmade things for your little babe. She will absolutely love it! I wish that I was more talented when it came to sewing or even creating so that Quinn could have more handmade things.

I guess this is easy for me to say, but I can not believe how fast your pregnancy is going! I need to check your blog more often to get the updates. Good luck with the name searching, it is so hard but when you find the right name you will know:)

Jeff & Kayci said...

Oh Brit! I'm getting excited to see your sweet little angel! The name will come with time;) I know people who don't name the baby until after it is born, so no stress. I love the decor, you are amazing and I wish I could do it like you! Only 9 weeks left, so close. Keep the posts coming!

Reimstar said...

Loving it! I remember when you ordered those pictures for your future baby boy, but I'm going to be honest, I almost love them more now with a little feminine touch :) 9 weeks?! You're so close! I'm a little sad thinking I've completely missed out on your pregnancy! But can't wait to see the little sweetie! Love you

Beautiful work Britt, just DARLING. I have loved all of the confetti system things I've seen online lately. You did a great job replicating it. I'm excited to see the rest!
Sounds like you guys have been super busy traveling. So how are you feeling lately?! Still good?
And we didn't name Cohen until we were getting ready to leave the hospital and HAD to fill out his birth certificate info ha. It so much harder to decide when it's a reality. We are far from having a name with this baby as well...

LOVE. really. can't believe you're already at 7.5 months. let's see the baby bump!

niki said...

I want to see all those projects you've completed!! This is so exciting. I can't wait to see this gorgeous girl...and one day meet her;)

Oh, trust me, I've already thought about how fun it would be to be living by eachother for the summer! Maybe one day. It looks like we'll be doing this for the next few years.
