Baby #2: Week 37


The nursery is ready (reveal post is here). The bags are "packed" - A.K.A things are set out or folded in piles but there are a few missing items still. I am finishing that tonight though so we have it ready this weekend, just in case.

My only remaining project is to make the boys' brother shirts, and I plan on finishing that tonight as well. I got it all designed yesterday but it was too late to start the cutting/ironing process.

Somewhere I read that having presents for the kids to "exchange" when they meet is helpful. That being said we did get a present for Hudson from Leighton and are planning on getting something for Leigh this week. Any other tips on introducing #1 to #2 at the hospital?

Hudson's Nursery Reveal: A Celestial Space

I promised you a room reveal, and that is what is happening today! This room was a labor of love and patience. It was also a lesson in repurposing. If you have been around here for any length of time, you probably saw Leighton's nursery. It was Peter Pan/Neverland themed, and Nate and I did a lot of crafting, refinishing and building to make it perfect.



You will notice that some of the items from Leighton's nursery have been reused here for Hudson. It worked out that the two rooms ended up with similar colors in their color palette. The base of the rooms are different though. Leighton's was centered around a book. Hudson's is centered around this quilt.

Baby #2: Weeks 34, 35, 36


The nursery is ALMOST complete! I seriously am just missing a couple of things here and there (a.k.a. a rug and maybe a basket). It is becoming so, so real. We officially have a date, which is just crazy to think about.

At my 36 week appointment, they did my Group B Strep test so they checked me while I was there. Normally they won't be checking me at my appointments since I have a scheduled c-section (really I'm not complaining about that, one less time I have to get dressed/undressed in the day). I was 1cm and 30% though. My Braxton Hicks are turning into more of the real thing, just super sporadic and far apart. Nothing to really stop and think about though.

This weekend I will be packing our bags so we are ready just in case, but really I need him to stay  in until AT LEAST the 22nd. That is because before this baby comes, we have a wedding to go to. So obviously I need a dress! I have been looking at them for weeks now and am struggling to make up my mind. This is what I am choosing between:

27 I's for my Birthday

The day has come, my BIRTHDAY! In the spirit of celebrating another trip around the sun, I thought it would be fun for me to share a bit about myself. I am not promising these all will be new, fun and exciting facts, but it is nice to do a refresher right?


Actually, it was super hard to come up with 27 things. It all started in some sort of order, but by the end, I am all over the place. Hope you make it through all of them! 

A Celestial Space: The Inspiration


If you were here two years ago while I was decorating Leighton's nursery, you would know that I am all about a non-literal translation of a theme. AKA His nursery was a Neverland theme, but I tried to not have actual Disney renditions of things all over the place. It was subtle, but I LOVED it. The decision to go with Neverland as the theme was all because we got this great first edition of Peter Pan that I framed in a shadow box. It ended up being extremely fitting that his room was centered around a book, because the kid was and is a huge book worm!
