26 Weeks Preggo and Counting

It’s been one of those ‘down’ weeks.

I’ve been overly tired, and under motivated.

We took some time on Friday to join the husband’s family in another town to celebrate his father’s birthday. Since it was a little bit of a drive we spent the night with his parents. It’s nice to get away sometimes, although it was short lived, it was a needed holiday.

I’ve been fretting and fussing about getting a few things for the baby. He’s coming ‘soon-ish’ (if you consider July soon, I guess for an expectant mother the worry and anticipation isn’t uncommon). Hence, I’ve been Internet browsing for baby things. The most important things I’ve been concerned about are the basic necessities of the nursery, and things like the car seat.

I found the most adorable nursery bedding, and I’ve become obsessed with it. Of course it’s much more expensive then what one would typically spend on nursery bedding, but it’s too late, I’ll scrimp and save. Most everything else we’re getting as hand-me-downs, so at least we don’t have to worry about spending money in a lot of areas.

Here’s the beautiful bedding, by Dwell Studio called "Transportation"

That’s the same wall colour that we had chosen before hand, the hand-me-down crib is white, so it feels like a great fit. I’ll make some fun curtains, maybe in orange and grey, and use the colours of the bedding to make lots of other little treasures for him.

The baby seems to be fine, wiggling lots, kick boxing or something that feels similar. I’m glad he’s got lots of energy, and also hope he gets lots of exercise while he still has some room in there. I can’t imagine him being overly wiggly when we hit month’s 8 and 9.

I’ll be working more for the shop in the days to come.
