My mom and I have swapped calls and/or texts numerous times this weekend (and more than usual) for a very fun reason. It’s nursery bedding day! She and my aunt have been working steadfastly to produce a crib bumper and skirt, curtains, a recovered ottoman, and a rocking chair pillow and seat cushion, and verifying measurements along the way. Down the road, we’ll likely add a throw pillow here or there, and in honor of my bucket list, I’ll get my first sewing lesson from Mom in the way of a coordinating quilt. I can’t wait to learn with all of the delightful fabrics that arrived on her doorstep earlier this week!
Next weekend, we’ll get the chance to see all of Mom and Aunt Nancy’s handiwork firsthand, which means it will also be nursery-bound very, very soon. I could squeal with excitement as everything comes together, and I can’t wait to share photos here once it’s all in place. There are still a few “smaller” details that will join the mix over the next month or so, including artwork on the walls (yet to be determined) and a very large, white giraffe silhouette that will greet Baby K in the mornings when he or she awakes.
We’re now seven weeks away from d-day, so baby and I have been scheduling pep-talks with regular occasion. Four or more weeks, and the world is fair game. Before then, the little one better just continue to cozy up in my belly I hope we’re in agreement on this one!
On the subject of measurements…the bump is now defining my every move and decision. Bending over? It’s nearly a thing of the past. Tying shoes? Let’s just say I’m ready for flip flop season. The good thing is, it won’t be too much longer before I can see my toes again. That nail polish color I once admired is now SO winter 2010/11…
grateful for the extremely talented women in my life, and for the extremely adorable (just guessing:) baby in my tummy,
