I’m not a huge planner, well, God has broken me of that over the years. But it’s been killing me to be getting so close to my due date (only four days away!!) and not feeling like the room is ready. In fact, I may have had a break down or two recently, where my husband had to sweetly remind me our baby girl will be just fine if she’s born and the bumper pads aren’t ready, or heaven forbid the changing table isn’t done. I’m not so sure. Ha. So, the last few weeks we’ve been busy-yes we-as I have all sorts of things/ideas of how I want her room to be. My poor husband is going from one project to the next, assembling something every other day practically. But he’s been a great sport about it, and it’s been fun for both of us to work on getting everything ready. And the strange part? It’s not just her room I want in perfect order… this whole nesting thing is pretty ridiculous. Oh sure it’s great to have a perfectly spotless fridge, floor matts you can eat dinner off of, sliding doors so clean you run into. But it’s exhausting! I can’t help myself. Brandon finds it pretty entertaining, until it sucks him in, and he finds himself fixing or assembling this and that. It’s been so fun!!!
So here are a few shots of the room and the things we’ve been working on.
My aunt had some leftover fabric, so I was wondering what I could do with it. The problem is, I’m not a sewer. I enjoy making crafts, sure, but sewing is a whole different ball game. I needed curtains for her room, and thought maybe I could find someone to help me. Turns out, a sweet new friend, Maria, is an amazing seamstress! And she was so happy to help me make curtains! In fact, we did it in one afternoon! I could not have done it without her, and the help of her daughter too. Isabela is only eight, and yet she already knows how to sew. It was pretty cute when I would get stuck, all I had to to was ask her! She was a pretty cute little teacher! And you will never, ever believe this: Maria and her family lived in Haiti! For almost three years too-at almost at the same time as us! We never knew them, it is a big country, kinda of, and they were down in the south, in the Jacmel area, so pretty far from us. But can you believe that?? We met them here, and couldn’t believe that we had that in common!! It’s crazy, and we are loving getting to know them and their family.
All of it put together, equals one pretty fun girly baby room!! YAY !! Now, maybe I feel a little more ready and perhaps she’ll be coming soon?? Who knows, we are only about four days from my due date, which is February 26th! Even though due dates are so arbitrary, she will come, and it will be soon. Can’t wait to meet this baby girl!!
