The last few days I have been patiently waiting for this wee one to make it's debut.After being sent to the hospital to stop contractions at 32 weeks I can't believe I'm only 5 days away from my due date. The Lord has answered our prayers in so many ways.
Here is a peek of the wee one's room. It will be in our bedroom the first little while since we have no other bedrooms downstairs. And for some reason it didn't seem right putting he or she in the kitchen or living room.
The cradle is the one Joshua slept in as a baby.
The quilt is from Joshua's mom, a heirloom indeed.
The prints are from a second hand store and still remain frameless for some odd reason. I only think of it when I walk past them, oh well, tape works too.
I have always been intrigued with terrariums. As a child I loved the little, mossy gardens with animals nestled around. I decided to make a spring one today with some daffodils that sprouted in my flower bed.
I just put some rocks in the bottom,
then a layer of sandy soil (for good drainage),
planted my daffodils, and topped off with moss.
The mushroom was purchased from Walmart in the gardening section.
They sell all kinds of cute, flower pot figurines-
Hello, and yes I am still alive and no I haven't had my baby yet. Between remodeling, three weeks of bed rest and no computer I haven't been able to blog. We are quickly trying to get our kitchen done before the little one arrives. It will be close, but at least the worst part of it is done.
Here is a sampling of our newly decorated house...
We are going for more of the abstract look with our island:)
I have never missed a kitchen sink so badly.
Our baby room/bedroom.
This little angel fluttered in from Indiana.
She helped me almost everyday when I was on bed rest
and helped clean up remodeling dust numerous times.
I'm sure she will be delighted with this photo of her but it's the only
one I have. By the way, this was our kitchen in the bathroom.
Oh, how much I have learned the last month. To just let things go and sit in a chair with my feet up was stretching for me. I did it and learned so much in return. I am overwhelmed by the support from family and friends, and the ones who brought meals and helped us remodel.
I now have a stove and sink back with bottom cabinets. Whoop, whoop. I can cook again! Cooking is therapy for me and oh, did I miss it.
I am due March 27 and the doctors are sure I will deliver early.
