Baby M’s Nursery

This past weekend, I finally finished decorating my daughter’s nursery.

I didn’t really do anything monumental, just made use of the little bedroom that is hers.

Most of the stuff here are old ones from Jakub.  I just played with the colors a little bit to add a feminine touch.

We initially had a blue sofa bed in this room and back then I thought of keeping it.  But realistically, it doesn’t really serve the purpose because I have decided to room with her in her first few months of life.  With the feeding and diaper changes, being in the same room is just very convenient.

So off went the sofa bed, and we replaced it with Jakub’s old bed.

I accessorized the wall with decorative stickers, after deciding not to re-paint it.

On the other side of the room, I placed a small, simple changing table and decorated the bare walls with some of her dresses.

I’m glad I was able to find a border sticker that was pink with neon green accents.  It somehow connected with the color of the closet which was my initial worry.

Anyway, I’m quite happy with the room now and I hope she will be too.

It’s a girl!

Last year, we moved into a new home.  This year, I am expecting my second child.  And it’s a girl!

Yes, I am now 20 weeks pregnant and on my way to becoming a mother of 2.

I have been very lazy these past few months, as I was still battling with first trimester pregnancy symptoms. But now that I am on my 2nd trimester,  the aversion to food has now been replaced with a humongous appetite, and the constant tiredness is  now replaced with a new surge of energy giving way to my burning desire to travel again and experience Europe before I go for another hiatus.   Needless to say, I feel great again sans the big belly.

True to literature, 2nd timers really do show quite early.  The picture above is an old one when I was still pregnant with Jakub.  This is really how I look like now.

And this did not escape Jakub’s observation.  One day as he was trying to play his make believe game with us, he said he’s a spider, his Tata is the dog and Mama is the elephant.  Oh well…
