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.
