These Daffodils picked from my front yard have been one of the few things to make me smile today. My amazing hubs taking the girls to school for me was the first but these are a close second! Let me start out by saying I’ve been in labor since early Sunday morning, been to hospital and sent back because I’m not dialated. Ask anyone who is nine months pregnant what that feels like and they’ll tell you, devastating. I’m tired, grumpy, not teaching or massaging, not practicing and basically being a crazy hormonal hot mess. Yes, I’ve tried everything! Pineapple, dates, spicy, thai spicy, indian spicy, raspberry tea, tons of water, I’ve tried walking, not walking, taking relaxing baths, my sweet friends even got me an induction massage that was pure heaven (http://www.belliesandbabiesnc.com/#! ask for Christy!), cleaning the entire house top to bottom, meditation, reiki, I even did hot yoga a week ago, still…..nothing. Let me back up a bit…In 2010, after I had Amelie, I found out I had cervical cancer, I was lucky. I had surgery, required no chemo or radiation and I’m still here. The surgery went fine but I hemorrhaged a week after surgery and almost died. Two blood transfusions and a ton of rest later and I was ok but needless to say there’s a lot of fear. Not to mention the 7 hours of back labor I endured with Stella in 2007, ok yea, I hate hospitals and am petrified of the whole birthing process. I know it’s natural and beautiful, I can handle pain, I know how to breathe but I’m still not ok with the whole thing. So while I put my big girl panties on and deal with all of that, Lucy’s nursery is such a happier topic..
Jake snagged the crib off craigslist and I absolutely love it!
I got the prints off Etsy (https://www.etsy.com/shop/KZukowski)
The Rocking chair is from Ikea, Jake’s family threw us a gorgeous shower and it was a gift from his mum, Aunt and Uncle, and grandmother and grandfather, the room is painted a greyish color and I wanted tons of bright colors to lighten things up! I made the curtains and the crib skirt myself. I just stuck lucy’s tub in the crib for storage purposes, but how awesome is it going to be, getting a bath in this cozy soft flower? Got it at Target.
Love “Where the Wild things Are” and couldn’t wait to hang this adorable block print from Etsy (https://www.etsy.com/shop/LilMissScrappy)
Instead of cards, Jake’s grandmother had the great idea for guests to bring books, we’re huge readers and LOVE all of the cute books we’ll be reading to Lucy, We used spice wracks from Ikea to hold them, I didn’t like the idea of a big bulky bookcase and this was a great space saver! They along with the dresser we were gifted will be painted an awesome green to match the print as soon as it gets warm enough!
I made the changing pad cover from the softest flannel in my stash and love it!
We have been so lucky to receive such amazing gifts, clothes, and this fabulous bed from my sweet friend Laurel! It’s perfect for those late night feedings when i don’t want to disturb papa bear and also for guests, Love the bedding! We love our fur babies as much as the two leggeds so I had to include some lab and siamese love! I got these prints off Etsy too! (https://www.etsy.com/shop/squarepaisleydesign, https://www.etsy.com/shop/GoingPlaces2) We’ll add more prints to this wall, just waiting on Miss lucy!!!!!
