Just wanted to share a few pictures (sorry they aren’t very clear since they are from my phone) of the nursery before Baby Dietrich gets here. I call my theme “Bohemian Safari Chic” because I wanted something gender neutral (obviously), but still my style. Husband did all of the hanging of art & curtains on the windows. He is just so good at that! ;) The only thing I do not have at this time is my wall mounted book shelf that was supposed to be here last week, but I have just been informed it will not be here until mid-May. Booooooo!!! I also do not have very many baby clothes yet… I figured I have a whole lifetime to buy lots of adorable outfits. I imagine it will be like: one cute outfit for baby, one cute outfit for mommy ;). Anyway, this is now my favorite room in the house. I go in there all the time just to sit in the rocking chair and stare at all the things Baby D will soon be using on a regular basis. It’s just the sweetest little room… now all we need is a Baby! Hurry up little one, we are all waiting!
We have officially entered the single digits when counting down the weeks left before Baby D makes his or her debut! WOW! I cannot even put into words how excited I’m getting! Yesterday, my sweet friend Kelly threw a shower for Baby D at her lovely home and, once again, Baby & I were showered with so much love and support. I have lots of pictures to sort through from the event, but I will post all about it later this week.
As for this bumpdate, I don’t think I ever addressed the three hour glucose test results from a few weeks ago… everything came back normal :) Being half way through my third trimester, I am starting to fall into those symptoms that everyone has warned me about (not sleeping, lack of energy, feeling HUGE ha ha ha). These last 7 weeks are going to be tough, but I’m hanging in there…
Last night Husband & I were out at dinner with my mom & my cousin Kelly, when my mom (or it might have been Kelly… pregnancy brain) asked us what we are most excited about with the baby. This is a great question because there are a million and one things that we are excited about. My biggest excitements, at the current moment, would have to be the baby cuddles and giggles. I’m also looking forward to seeing and experiencing everything through my child’s eyes, such as Christmas, birthdays, Disney, traveling, etc… Husband is more excited about the closer future stuff like actually knowing what the gender of the baby is and what he or she are going to look like :) At the baby shower, Kelly had us bring baby pictures of Husband & I that she put on display with twine and wooden clothes pins (which was super cute by the way). Anyway, while examining the pictures, you start to wonder what characteristics Baby is going to have. Husband had almost white blonde hair growing up, where I was always very much a brunette. He has light eyes, I have dark. He has a cute dimple in his chin and cheek, I do not… bottom line, he was cuter than me ha ha ha! Just playin’ we were both pretty darling little kids. But I agree with him, I’m just as excited about seeing what traits Baby has from both of us!
I get lots of questions about how the nursery is coming along and I’m happy to let everyone know that all the essentials are here thanks to all the wonderful friends and family members who have spoiled Baby D over the last few months. I’m just waiting on my rocker (which is on backorder until April 10th) and my bookshelf which should be here in April as well… then I will take some final pictures of the whole room with details of where everything is from, but here are some before’s and progress:
I will make sure to do a final nursery reveal in a few weeks once it’s complete!
I have a ton of pictures from Grand Cayman that I still need to share on here in addition to the baby shower. Life has been so hectic (in a good way) these last few weeks, I just need a few more days to organize and collect my thoughts so I have all the fun stuff to write about! Thanks again for following along! I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
