Matt’s birthday present to the baby – a hand-painted bike canvas!! I found a few on Etsy and nearly bought one when I realized I could make one myself that would be more special and a lot less expensive. But then I realized that Matt is SO much more artistic than I am and asked him if he would like to take on the project. We bought a 20×20 canvas at Michael’s for $14 and used our leftover bathroom paint for the backdrop. Some white acrylic paint, bowls for wheel tracing and a steady hand turned out into a really fun nursery addition! We might paint his name under the bike when he’s here : )

Hard to believe it’s almost been 9 months since this beer last got attention!*

Foodblog-3539

*I feel the need to note that I’m not planning to booze it up as soon as the baby comes out! I’m sure that will be the last thing on my mind. Just saying that it will be fun to drink this ceremoniously at some point after he’s born since it was how I told Matt I was pregnant – in lieu of a champagne toast!

My mom keeps telling me “Sweetie you need a pretty nightgown for the hospital to wear as your first moments as a mother!” And I keep telling her that I don’t wear nightgowns! I wear tanks and PJ bottoms at home, and would probably just wear the hospital gown until I could put on a tank and PJs/yoga pants at the hospital too.

But on a recent visit to the mall, I stopped in to look at nightgowns anyways at Belk. They were all so expensive!! And many were frumpy or just not the right kind of support on top for a hospital room with visitors. I didn’t want to pay $50 for a shirtdress. The ones at Motherhood were nice, but a little too skimpy as well for my comfort.

And then I found the above robe by Nautica! Modern and pretty – and something I will definitely use again. A little expensive, but also 30% off! I like that it has two ties to keep it secure, and I think with a nursing cami underneath and either just underwear or the matching super big, dark colored, loose bottoms it will be a comfortable, warm and stylish nightgown alternative. I can see myself wearing this around the house in the first few weeks as well!

My parents’ gift to us for the baby was the high chair!! We chose the OXO Tot Sprout after reading a bunch of reviews and recommendations.  I hear it’s also very easy to clean : )

The base matches our dining room table and the top matches our bright green drum shade!

The chair is up in our attic until it’s time to start solids, but I wanted to share the poem that my mom crafted to go with the gift : )
