Nursery Inspiration

 My color inspiration for Sienna's nursery...

1. Style Me Pretty, 2. raehein, 3. Better Homes and Gardens, 4. Eva Magill-Oliver, 5. Better Homes and Gardens via decor8

I'm sorry I keep posting these teasers, real pictures of her room will be up in the next couple of weeks. It's ALMOST done :) 


How adorable are these cottage beds?! I have a feeling Isaac is going to be a busy Daddy over the next few years :) I can't wait to see all of the neat things he builds for Sienna. I'm so lucky to have such a handy husband. It seems like he can fix or build anything, even if he's had no prior experience. Our kiddos are gonna have the coolest Papa!

Here's a little list of things that I am looking forward to post-baby... other than snuggling my little lady and all that sweet stuff.

What Mama misses:

sex in ANY position I'd like
picking things up with my hands, not my feet
sexy lingerie
falling asleep holding my hubby, not a full body pillow

I can imagine it now.... getting dressed up and going on a sushi date with the Hub and our baby girl. Afterwards, coming home and putting Sienna to bed. Then, breaking out the bottle of wine, yum! After the wine is gone, I'll sneak into the room to put on something sexy (and that fits!), followed by many positions of you-know-what. Then falling asleep cuddling my Love, with no belly or pillows between us.

I know some of you moms are probably laughing your ass off right now, but a girl can dream, can't she?!

The baby gives me a swift kick to the crotch that makes me accidentally pee a teeny bit. Thank goodness for pantyliners... better safe than sorry!

I walk around my house in a bra and undies, the AC on full blast, the fan going, all the while my sweet hubby is shivering in the corner.

I have to blow on my boobs. Why you ask? To cool those puppies down! They're big, heavy and get really hot! They are like two heaters that rest on top of my belly. I'm not use to having them! My pre-pregnancy boobs never got in the way, they were light as a feather and never got HOT! I never thought I would say this but... I miss my small boobs! I know what you are thinking, "wait til your milk comes in". I know, I know.

I put milk in the cabinet and cereal in the fridge, or walk around a parking lot beeping my car for ten minutes because I can't remember where I parked. I thought "baby brain" was a myth, nope, it's 100% real.

Update Time:

I know, I'm a bad girl. I haven't blogged in forever, sorry!

Here are a few quick updates:

I am 34 weeks, only 6 more to go! Did you read my recent post about the 3rd trimester and how crappy it is? Well turns out, it isn't so crappy after all! The first week or two of my 3rd trimester kinda sucked but after that, it really hasn't been that bad. Sure, I'll have a rough day every now and then, but over all I've felt pretty darn good! AND the emotional mood swings did not continue, hallelujah! Well, except for one teeny, tiny episode... one night we got food from the taco shop, I ordered 5 rolled tacos. When we got home and started eating I noticed something horrible... there were only 4 rolled tacos! How dare the taco shop man! Immediately, I banged my fist on the table and started to cry. When the hub saw the big fat tears streaming down my face he quickly offered me some of his carne asada fries... I instantly felt better. It was all over in about 30 seconds. That was the only other time my prego monster came out.

As of my last doctors appointment, so far, I've gained 20 pounds! :) We both are very healthy!

We are now planning and preparing for our baby shower. We decided to have a co-ed shower, why should the ladies have all the fun? Isaac wanted to share the day with me and hang with all of his buddies too, sounds good to me! I can't wait, we are really looking forward to seeing everyone!

I PINKY PROMISE that I will post pictures from our babymoon, and all of the cool nursery projects we've been busy with. Keep an eye out, that will be coming soon!

Dear Sienna,

Hi Love,
We are only 6 weeks away from meeting you! Daddy and I have been so busy getting your room ready for you. I think you are going to love it, it's so pretty! We made sure to fill it with things that are very special. Your Auntie brought you all sorts of goodies back from her trip to Europe! An adorable dress from France, a onsie from Amsterdam, pink glittery shoes from Holland, you already have such cool stuff! She also brought you a sweet little stuffed bear back from Barcelona and he is waiting for you in your crib. A cute squirrel is resting above your crib so he can watch over you, he was your Grandma's, we know she is smiling down from heaven :) We hung pretty pink rosary beads that Daddy and I got in Rome on our honeymoon. We have a few things to finish up but everything is just about done.

You and I have become so close over these months. I talk to you constantly and I know you listen. You know what is really weird... Daddy says that sometimes, when he kisses or hugs me, he can smell you. He says that I smell like a baby. Sometimes I think he is crazy, but maybe he is already getting to know you just like I am. I can't wait to see what kind of personality you'll have. I'm guessing you are going to be extremely active, since you have been the whole time you've been in my belly. Will you be soft spoken like Dad or outgoing like me? Will you like to explore the world, will you be adventurous? Will you have a special love for the ocean like Daddy? Whatever you'll be like, we will be proud. We want to give you all of the opportunities in the world, to do whatever you want, to be whoever you want.

I dream of you all of the time. I see your hair and pretty eyelashes, but mostly I see your tiny fingers. I can't wait to hold them and kiss them. So many people are anxiously waiting for you. Up until a couple weeks ago, I was the most anxious of all. I wished that time would speed up and you could just be here already. Not anymore. I've found a peace and calm that I didn't have before. In some way, I think you gave it to me. I am enjoying every moment that leads up to your birth. I know that you will come when you are completely ready and I don't want to do anything to rush that. You will pick your birthday and until then, I will be enjoying our time together, closer than we will ever be again. I will always treasure these moments. I will never forget how this feels. It feels amazing.

I love you so much baby girl.
♥ Mommy
