I’ve had this paper star floating around the nursery – and our house – for a long time. I’m just not sure what to do with it!

IMG_1028 IMG_1027

Should I hang it over the crib? I wonder if it would feel a bit sparse just the single star in the center?

IMG_1031

Does the black and white go? I’ve heard that babies like black and white.

IMG_1030

Thoughts?

Also, forgot to include this book in our collection! Amelia gave it to me last fall – before I was pregnant!! So very appropriate!

My uterus is supposedly the size of a soccer ball now.

IMG_0682

That is HUGE! Do you believe it?

Mother’s Day gift from my mom!! Love it!!

As the librarian of the family, she is also filling his bookshelves. In honor of the late Maurice Sendak.

I am now the proud owner of a rainbow of ribbed maternity tanks for Old Navy. I love these for layering, working out, and sleeping!! Soft, comfy and long. Inexpensive too!

IMG_0247

And see this little guy? He’s the happy big-brother-to-be.

IMG_0248

He is 9 inches from crown to paw.

IMG_0249

My baby is supposedly just about a foot in length from crown to heel!

IMG_0255

Sorry Bocker, you are now the little big brother!

IMG_0254

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms and moms-to-be!

Things are coming along in the nursery…just a few updates this week:

IMG_0016

Bunting flags from Etsy are hung! They required a complicated mathematical equation to get remotely close to even. Love the colors!

IMG_0017

We also relocated Adam & Eve (painted by my grandmother) to the nursery when we got the new kitchen chalkboard. They help to balance the animals on the other side of the room. Lightweight too so less hazard for falling on baby than something big and heavy (like the glass frame that used to be there).

IMG_0019

Baby has book!

IMG_0021

Well, 3 at least. And shelves to put them on!

IMG_0020

Beaker says it’s too hot for swaddling! But he loves his pinwheel from Caitlin’s shower!

IMG_0018

I got a new [super supportive] bathing suit from Athleta at your recommendation! LOVE the top – I went straight to the DD bra size section and picked a halter with underwire. It fits great! I usually get suits at Old Navy, so this was by far the most expensive one I’ve ever bought, but worth it for a secure fit.

Any suit that makes a pregnant lady feel good is a winner!

Can you tell in this photo that I have pigmentation on my forehead? My doctor says it’s melasma, when the melanin in your body goes a little crazy and makes pigments darker on your face in response to sun. I think the main purpose of the changing pigments all over is to make your nipples darker so the baby can see them when he is born. No comment on the status of those…

IMG_20120420_192141

Another weird body thing – I have blue veins all over my chest. Like in a scary road map way!! They are so obvious that I can see them across the room in Pump! I tried to take a photo, but the lighting wasn’t totally cooperating. But you can see a few!

2012-04-20 18.13.04

In other news, we have a crib mattress!! After a fair amount of research, I decided on this one by Naturepedic. It cost more than our crib did. Ouch. But it fits the crib well, and I think it was a good purchase.

IMG_9313

The swaddled bear loves it.

IMG_9312

In other nursery décor news, baby now has a set of bunting flags from Etsy in grey, yellow and blue! I’m hoping to hang them above the crib soon. I could have DIYed this, but by the time I purchased all the materials, hauled Karen’s sewing machine from the attic, butchered half of the flags and found a few hours to do all of this, I decided I would rather support someone else who enjoys sewing and has an Etsy shop. [Note: I am going to make something with the sewing machine soon…but it will be a much more simple project!]
