It's a girl!

So, I haven't been posting in a long time, because I have been exhausted from my pregnancy.  Who knew it was so tiring to make a person?  Lol.  I just wanted to update everyone on things on a personal front and then perhaps I can review some of the books I've been reading lately.  So, as the title of this post indicates: we're having a girl!  I'm so excited.  We've been having a ton of fun buying girly things finally and working on her room some more.   We decided upon her name as well: Lily Emmaline.  I've been spending lots of time trying to get her ready for the world, both on a conscious and a subconscious level.  The things I'm doing on purpose include: playing music for her, singing to her, reading to her and rocking my body (hopefully she'll like her expensive swing when she's here haha).  We've been doing so much to prepare her nursery as well.  I always loved watching interior design shows and looking at the magazines, but this is the first room I've ever designed on my own from top-to-bottom.  My awesome husband helped make all my ideas come to life as well.  He is so talented when it comes to DIY stuff!  So, anyway, here are some pictures for everyone!  I hope you realize my time has been well spent away from blogging, but I'm still around!

This is the ultrasound of Lily when we found out her gender at 19 weeks!

This is Lily's room so far.  We still need a few things like a crib skirt...

This is the other side of Lily's room and all her books so far!

Here is her awesome closet that Brian remodeled for her.  Hopefully it's enough space now!  And look at her cute tiny clothes!  <3

Okay, well I guess that's it for now.  I hope you're all doing well and having a great start to the new season!  :)

  2. Thanks. I can't wait for her to be here! :)

  3. Congratulations! Lily's room is gorgeous! Having a little girl is the best gift in the world--well, I guess a boy would be, too, but there's a special bond between a girl and her mom. :)

  4. Thanks and since it's my first I'm really happy it got to be a girl. I hope it's a boy next time for my husband to have a son, but either way we'll be done after that lol. :)

  5. Congrats!! The room looks lovely! Couldn't see the books though! :( My little niece likes her books too! Makes me so happy! She also likes Scooby Doo! The girl is definitely picking up my vices! Must be because she was born on my birthday! What a gift from my sis!!

    Congratulations again!!

  6. Thanks. I was thinking of doing a post about some of my favorite books that I got for her so far. <3

  7. Congratulations! Lily Emmaline is a pretty name. And I love how the nursery looks!

  8. Congratulations! I love the name you chose, it is flows so nicely on the tongue.

  9. Thank you! :) We took a long time picking it out and then changed our minds about the middle name too.

  10. We're expecting a girl too! Congratulations!

    When are you due? We're due Dec. 20th :)

    I LOVE what you've done to her room.
    You must tell me where you found that awesome floral mobile thing. It's awesome!

    Our little girl's room is more shabby chic.

  11. Thank you and congratulations as well!

    I'm due January 5th! It's finally getting close. :)

    Thanks again! I got that ceiling mobile through Babies'R'Us and I can't find it through them anymore, but here's the link to it on Amazon:
