We Can Have a Baby Now...

Imagine, if you will, a beautiful, foo-foo, guest bedroom: bright magenta walls, pink and white flowery quilt, vintage decor... the whole works. That was the BEFORE.
This picture of Gwenyth was taken on the bed in that room. I hope that gives you a bit of an idea.
 
NOW:
 
 
Never mind the half naked toddler... with hives... ugh! Sunscreen is supposed to protect them, not give them skin conditions. That's a whole other story.
 
We are ready for a baby boy to inhabit this room.
 
Some of my favorite things:
It took me hours of pining over fabric to get the right ones. I love the giraffe print and the zebra backing. I tried to keep an animal theme in the room. In the above pictures you can see some animal prints framed on the wall.
 
 Hand crocheted blanket, cheap thrifted lamp that I re-painted. I am in LOVE with the wire baskets (thank you Big Lots).
 
And my very favorite thing is the mobile. Really, these are the first "3D" things I have sewn. I really am a very basic sewer. So, I am kinda proud of these little animals.
 
Here's another view, 'cause I like it so much : )
 
Friday, Friday, Friday! I am livin' for Friday. I have a scheduled C-section. Barring there's no women in real labor who need an emergency section, I will have a baby boy in my arms around 7:30 am.
 
I am ready. SO READY. More on that later...
 
Thanks for stopping in everyone even though it's been rather quiet around here.

Looks awesome. I wish I had creative talent like that. Was thinking of you the other day when I was limping into my dr. appt. I'm still saying a prayer for you and hoping that baby and comfort come soon! (Oh, and I have half naked children with hives too for the same reason. Lydia's entire face broke out with red blotches that won't go away!)

Best to you this Friday! I will be excited to hear the news!
Love the room. It is so fresh! And, you fooled me because I thought you bought those hanging animals!
Your sunscreen issue has me nervous. Annabel has very sensitive skin, so I hope what I bought will work for her. We've already had a heat rash and now a diaper rash. Did you have an gestational diabetes this time around?

Thanks for the well wishes everyone. Sara- I savor that Buddha belly every day! : )

Heather- I will let you know if I come up with a solution. Going to look at some more natural products. And, no gestational diabetes this time... BUT, doc thinks he's going to be bigger than Gwen was!
