After all of my obsessing and nesting, things are finally coming together. Here is a few pictures of what the nursery looks like. We borrowed this crib so that we wouldn't have to move Natalie out of her crib yet. What a relief. I did not want to be chasing a 22 month old around the house at bedtime when we bring home a newborn. We made that mistake with Will and have decided Natalie can stay in her crib until she is 3 if need be. I found the perfect mirror to go above the red dresser and fell in love with it immediately. I never dreamed I'd find a neutral nursery that I liked as well as my girl/boy nurseries, but I really love this bedding by Cocalo Couture. I have a few more wall hangings to frame and hang. Now, I am just obsessing over the perfect hamper/canvas bin to go with the decor of the room. Hopefully I will find something I like, but the realization came to me this week that it really isn't the end of the world if the baby arrives and we don't have a hamper yet! The bed will eventually be Natalie's when we switch everything around. As I mentioned before, we will wait a little while longer for that hurdle! Here's to a smooth transition when baby P arrives!
I am a 36 year old stay-at-home-mom happily married to my husband Thomas. We have been married for 4 1/2 years and have spent the past 3 1/2 years learning how to be parents. Babies do not come with a manual! We have been blessed with two wonderful children who have truly given me more joy than I could ever have imagined (we won't mention gray hairs): Wild William (3 years) and
Princess Natalie (22 months)Finding myself living in the south was never something I imagined or sought after. I was quite content living in Los Angeles with no intent to leave. I guess God had other plans. I am finding contentment and joy I did not think was possible and am learning to do the dance!
