I sat there today watching the snow fall and I realized that we are only 3 short months away from welcoming our first baby to the family. It also dawned on me in this moment, that I rarely talk about it, or share it with my followers. Well here is a small post about the progress we are making. We found out in early October that we are expecting a little girl.
The first trimester was fun! Fun in a first time ever pregnant lets try this out fun. I discovered I didn’t like a lot of food. I did love acidic food, so tomato soup, sour anything (I hammered on the sour candy) and lots of cold popsicles. The second trimester I felt like life was becoming ‘normal’. Now today I enter into my third trimester and it’s right back to stage one; minus the fact if a chocolate bunny crossed my path it would be doomed.
When it comes to the future I’m absolutely terrified. It is so hard to plan for the unknown, and for the last 4 years I have had my life structured and planned to every detail. I won’t deny though that some of that nervousness is due to excitement. We can hardly believe that February is so close to us.
I’m sharing today a bit of progress with you all on the nursery. I wanted the space to be feminine, neutral (I am the *Queen* of boring and neutral) and a space she could grow into. It has many personal touches, including the lyrics to Tupelo Honey by Van Morrison above her crib. One of my absolutely favourite artists, and a small homage to my Dad, who introduced the artist to me at a young age. The song talks about a woman who is a sweet as Tupelo Honey, she’s an Angel of the First degree, just like honey.
I must also stop and quickly say a BIG thank you to the clients who have sent us gifts for Baby F – your kindness does not go unnoticed, and for me, someone who doesn’t cry, you have all made me cry many tears on more than one occasion. So *THANK YOU*. I will do my best to share more images with you all!
Until then, here is a look into what we’ve done so far….a work in progress!
