Well, I got more than I could bargain for on Valentine’s Day. Baby Boy number two made his debut at 12:29 am. He almost skipped the Hallmark holiday, but I just couldn’t push showtime fast enough. The delivery went smoothly, and P is darling.
He weighed in at 6 lbs. 14 oz. and has already gained almost twice as much as expected. This means I can feed him on demand now (rather than waking every two-three hours), and for those fellow BF moms, you know how relieving that is!
His big brother lets me know every time he is crying, and insists that he is hungry for milk. It’s cute, and I can’t believe I get to be both of these boys’ mom. Shucks.
Anyway, since the baby is now here, I thought I’d go ahead and show you some pictures of our Nursery, updated for Baby P.
The bones are the same, but I rearranged the furniture a bit, and added some art for the walls, and purchased new linens, an ottoman, and a new rug by DwellStudio, found here.
The owl lamp and shade are both from Target, and the ottoman is from IKEA. The horse is from Pottery Barn Kids, and is great to entertain L. while I’m tending to the baby.
I put two IKEA sconces (that I previously had in our bedroom) over the new-to-us credenza, which houses all of the baby clothes and diaper stuff much more efficiently. Clicking one of them on during middle of the night feedings offers just the right low-light setting.
The furniture rearrangement was a huge improvement to the room. Previously, we had the smaller white changing table/old dresser right beside the crib, and I never felt like it was balanced. Now that we have a much bigger credenza across from the crib, the room feels so much better. Plus, incorporating darker brown tones in the rug and furniture makes the crib look so much more crisp. I still need to re-do the mobile.
I’m a lot happier with the room now, and it just goes to show how the spaces we live in grow with us over time.
Also, scroll down to the bottom to see even more updated pics!
Here are the old pics from the first generation in the space, if you’re curious. We really had a long way to go!
The wallpaper is Daydream by Hygge & West
The glider is the Bayside Swivel from Crate and Barrel
The crib is from Giggle.
Happy Tuesday folks. You may or may not hear from me soon- things are going to be equally sporadic around here for a while.
UPDATE: I rearranged some things, and finally got that mobile reassembled. Here are some new pictures of the changes:
I nixed the leather straps, and went with clear line instead. The woodland animals are hand embroidered by my mom.
I added a big P to the wall of art. It’s from Pottery Barn Kids. Found here.
I finally gave up on the grand idea of finding “something perfect” for these frames, and instead opted to use some free downloads that I got printed up at Costco. I’m actually really happy with the solution, as much as I want to search the depths of Etsy into the wee hours of the morning, it’s just not going to happen right now, so this works for the interim.
