12 Weeks Pregnant!

This month brought a few milestones! I was able to feel that sweet little "butterfly flutter" at around 10 weeks. It was a great reminder that out of the sickness and exhaustion, a sweet beautiful baby is going to come from this. We are still 80% sure it is a girl and this sweet baby will hopefully cooperate at the 16wk appointment and we will know for sure!
I have been "sick-free" for around 2 weeks now!! I still feel nauseous daily, but no sickness here! I am praying that this is a sign of things to come, and that the last 2 trimesters will be a bit easier.
Little man is calling my belly by the girls name we have picked out and just when I think he is starting to get it, he points to his baby in his tummy! LOL!

I have started an inspiration board for the future nursery if it is indeed a girl. Here are some of my ideas:

Bedding: I am going to make the bedding and I LOVE this fabric collection!! It is Natura by Alexander Henry. I love the vintage yet modern feel of it and how it doesn't scream baby girl {baby pinks/purples}. It will grow with her and be super different than any other nursery!


Furniture: White with crackle finish! I think that will make this bedding pop and make the nursery clean and fresh looking!

Decor: - this nursery is GREAT!! I am going to recreate that chandelier but with the colors in the bedding. I love the eclectic mix of toys and old books as well as the owls- I LOVE OWLS!!

I love how crisp and clean this looks! I love the pom pom fringe on the curtains!

This is the tree that daddy will paint on the wall!

I am going to sew an alphabet quilt in the rooms colors!

mobile i am making!!

mirrored wall butterflies!


any other ideas?? What are your thoughts??

Oh, I LOVE IT!!!! It will all be super cute, and very stimulating for her quickly developing mind and eyes to look at- you'll have one smart girl!! :) This is too cute- you are so clever and creative. Look at my "Love Birds" painting from a post I did in August, I believe- you could so something like that with Owls, and your colors! :)

Can I ask where that blue bookcase is from? We've been looking for a book case for the wall for a while now and I love that!
