How your plans change

Before I became pregnant I had many visions for our baby's future room. I made this posting quite some time ago with inspiration pictures. Fast forward until now and there is not one thing in this posting that we are going with anymore. But it's fun to see and share !

This link shows you one of my inspirations from another person's blog. Very beautiful but not quite us anymore. 

I was so sure this would have been our mobile. Yea, not so much anymore. Even though I will be going with a very non traditional one, this is definitely not it.


At the time I didn't know what sex our child would be, but if it was a boy I loved the look of plaids and huntsman. Yep, again, now not so much ! 

 Then it came down to the changing table. I knew all along I did not want a traditional one at all (same as now) but these styles are not where we are heading anymore either !

More old inspiration below. Still not even close. Funny how your tastes can change with in a year right? Wild !

Our babe's first round of gifting

I've been quite nervous through out this entire journey and at first, I asked my family not to buy anything. But after many months, I became a lot better with it.  Here are some of the awesome things we have gotten from our families.
Booties made from a friend of my father in law. We've never met this person but so so nice of her to do.

Books from my sister. Super funny too.

Our first official gift from my sister in law. She bought this on her cruise that she was on when she heard the news.

From my sister in law and brother in law. That's our babe right there =)

These are from my in laws. So cute.They are bath mittens and towels

The first set of onesies from my mom. So cute.

We are so happy that our families are so loving and generous to us. My oldest sister sent me a beautiful arrangement of flowers too.  I was pretty sick when she sent them and sadly I never photographed them. They were a beautiful surprise to come home to one day on my door step with an adorable card attached telling me that she was sorry I was so sick and this will all be worth it in the end ! Adorable =).

This is one exciting journey for sure. I am 21 weeks now and I have started to feel our little babe kick away in there. What an amazing thing.

So where have I been lately? We'll I think these picture will sum it up. Me and Mr. B are expecting our first babe December 7. We are pretty excited about it. It was a rough start, weeks of morning sickness but now, let's just say it's smooth sailing from here!!! 

P.S. I am known to my doctor's office as the "girl who took 10 pregnancy tests." In my defense, I started testing 5 days early and just kept getting the confirmation until after I missed "aunt flow." Lol silly I know, but that's me !
