Nursery Reveal

I spent most of today putting the finishing touches on the baby's room. We're more than ready to meet this kid. In fact, I think it should come out NOW!

Anyway, here's what the baby's room looks like. Enjoy!

Colourful Art Cards | Frames | Animal Print - Spruce Collective | "Be Brave" & "Grow Strong" Decals - Spruce Collective | Magnet Board - gift from Hillary years ago!

Book Basket - Homesense

Dresser | Roman Shade Fabric | Bird Mobile brought home from Costa Rica

Lamp - old, but with a fresh coat of paint & new shade! | Whale Bookends - Spruce Collective

Crib Sheet - made my me! | Orange Table - Homesense | Chair - already had, but from Ikea

Zebra - Pier 1 | Pillow - made by me!

(I really enjoyed organizing this diaper drawer!)

Can't wait to stick a baby in this room! Just a few more days!

Photo Session

A few weeks ago, Dan & I got some maternity photos taken. I know this is totally weird for some people, and granted it was a little strange to participate in a photo shoot where my belly was the main focus, but we also had a lot of fun together, and we really like the photos we got back! It felt a little bit like our wedding all over again!

We hired Joanne Bos to take these photos. I can't say how I found her...I think Facebook? Anyway, all credit to Joanne for these photos. Here are some of my favorites!

Maternity Leave Report: Week 1

Well, week 1 of mat leave hasn't disappointed!

My daily schedule looks like this:

Just kidding! I have been doing a few things around home and in preparing for this imminent arrival. I know I do better with some kind of plan, so I have been trying to have something to do/go to each day, as well as rest or nap or read or do whatever I want at home.

This week, in addition to my usual chores & errands, I packed a diaper bag (including THE smallest/cutest soothers you have ever laid eyes on), made a couple of lasagnas for the freezer, worked on a baby blanket, and got a massage (saving that gift card REALLY paid off!).

This morning I made some muffins, and have the company of Johnny. This afternoon is looking like a great time for a nap on my screen porch!

Happy Friday, all!
