Baby Bliss

February 13, 2012

Hello all!  My week long silence can mean only one thing.  Our precious little bundle of joy finally decided to arrive 11 days past her due date.  I literally started pushing as the Super Bowl ended, and as her daddy says, the Patriots have not lost a Super Bowl in her lifetime!

In this world of social media, I am still trying to figure out how much to share about baby, so please bear with me.  I can just imagine her as a 13 year old girl, asking me “Mommy what is a blog, and why did you talk about my poop and spit up?”  Haha.  Rest assured I will do a nursery design reveal and photos of out new(ish) apartment.  I am still waiting on a few key pieces on back order…ahem…West Elm headboard that I ordered in October, I am looking at you.  I am also waiting for the crib skirt in which I am having made to be completed.  The seamstress was so convinced I was having a boy, by the way I was carrying, she refused to make the crib skirt until after I delivered…maybe it was the language barrier, but she would not even start on the pinky/coral fabric until confirmation of girl.  Haha

Here is a swatch of the fabric.  I am not a big pink person, but I think this coral goes great with the safari theme nursery and adds a little feminine accent with out being too girly.  I just love it!

Thank you all.  We are so so happy. XOXO


P.S.  Thank goodness for Fashion Week and the iPad.  They have made those late night feedings much more entertaining. Love it!  Expect a Fashion Week Street Style round-up in the near future.  With my belly slowly going away I am getting so inspired by all the street style looks and SOOOOO excited to dig back into my wardrobe.  Although my boobs are giving Pamela Anderson a slow motion, “Bay Watch,” run on the beach for her money.

    I like that your nursery won’t be pink and can’t wait to see your reveal! The crib skirt fabric is a great sneak peak – love the colors! My girls’s room was never pink either – and has black accents. They grow so fast out of that baby stage, so I think you’re making a SMAHT (with a Boston accent) decision to go with the coral. I’ll bet that the iPad makes for a great flashlight, during those late night feedings too (besides an outlet into the outside world!)….feels like yesterday 3,6,9,12,3,6,9,12…that 3-hour feeding schedule! Get some rest in between! Congratulations!

  6. Congratulations to you and your husband!
