I’m 24 weeks pregnant today – such a wonderful thing to be able to say!! I’m so loving feeling my little miss kicking away and wriggling around. BUT (and here I don’t want to sound ungrateful at all, but a touch of honesty is always good……) I don’t know about this “pregnancy glow” thing!! The last 3 weeks or so have been really difficult – just when I though I was getting over the bronchitis I got hit by a tummy bug which has left me with the MOST awful cramps!! So it was back to the doctor again………. I’m still not over it completely, but am trying, and breathing through the discomfort (such a euphemism!!). I have newfound respect for those of you who choose to deliver your babies naturally – these cramps have made me feel even more confident with my plan for a C-section!!!!
And here I am going to be like so many other bloggers and say “It is not my intention to turn this blog into a “Mommy Blog”!”. So I apologise to those of you who are not interested in the “mommy” side of things. I am however going to post a few items here and there about the baby’s room, her cute wardrobe, and some other creative and inspiring goodies all baby-related (just because I want to, and because many of you have asked me to!!).
Today I received my first overseas order for my little miss! I have always loved the creations of Freya who I discovered on Etsy years ago. One of her artworks in particular has always resonated with me, and so, now that I am going to have my own little “chick” I ordered it to frame and hang in her room. These pictures will give you a glimpse into the colour scheme that I have planned, but there will be a few more colours that you will see added to the mix (can you guess what they might be I wonder……).
So this is what I found in the parcel (after handing over a small fortune in customs duty at the post office this morning!!!! grrrrrrrrr). I love it when someone takes care to wrap and present your purchase with such care!! Thank you Freya!
And this is what was inside!!!
Isn’t it gorgeous! I can’t wait to frame the print and the card. I’m planning on putting the cushion on the rocking chair that I’m still looking for….
I’m now going to try to get a couple of orders out to some very kind and understanding clients who have waited patiently for me to recover and get back to work. Thank you Marguerite and Andrea (my soon to be cousin-in-law!).
