We Had a Baby!

Wow! I guess it's been a while since our last post. It appears on my end as though I started a "babbling" no. 8 post but never finished it! Ah, such is life! 

Anyways, in my last post I wrote about how baby boy was coming in two weeks - well, now that little baby boy will be TWO MONTHS on Friday! Oh, and he has a name too... welcome to the world, Jack Arthur Curry!

Time has been flying by since little man was born and for a while I felt like I couldn't keep up with anything, hence the lack of posts. BUT, I'm here today to share some photos from our newborn session we had with our friend, Elissa. These were taken when Jack was a few weeks old so obviously he's grown a ton since then, but I will cherish these photos forever (I should also mention that it was super hard to pick just a few to post when I love them all!). 

Babbling no. 6

Hi friends! Hope you're having a good week so far :)

I have some crazy news... baby boy will be here in a little over two weeks. TWO WEEKS!!! Is your mind blown because I know mine is! Also, if you're wondering how I know this, well our little dude is still breech so I will be having a c-section. I'm still birthing a baby, just in a different way and I am so excited to meet him!

Anyways, if you've been watching our stories on instagram, you probably saw an unexpected/semi-unplanned project starting - we're painting the nursery! We used Farrow & Ball's 'Green Blue' as an accent in my closet (where my shoes are to be exact) and I talked to B about possibly painting the nursery the same color, which he was all for. But of course time slipped away and we got busy with other things and it wasn't until I took out the sample pot to try on our guest room bed that I really considered it again. 

So here we are. I realized the other day that the space between the boards is still white and it's really hard to get in there with a paint brush so B went out and bought a paint sprayer to make things a little easier on this big ol' pregnant lady. Hoping to get this paint project wrapped up by the weekend.

We also decided on a color for our guest bed which I'm super excited for Joe Finch to paint! Oh and our master bed came (did I tell you this already?) and we picked out a color for that as well. 

Oh and I don't think I showed you all the finished wallpaper in the nursery closet (unless you saw it on instagram) - but we're OBSESSED! 

Babbling no. 5

Happy Tuesday! I feel like this year is already flying by, I can't believe it's already February! 

This last week has been more of the same... preparing for baby boy. I got a wake up call on Saturday morning when my girlfriend, who is due the day after me (I'm due March 17th, she's due March 18th), texted me that her water broke at 3am and that she was in labor. My heart stopped - I was in complete shock! Luckily her and her baby girl are fine and healthy, but it really made me realize this little dude can come (much) earlier than planned. I immediately started packing my hospital bag... if there's one thing you need to know about me it's that I hate not being prepared for something. 

Little man won't be sleeping in his nursery any time soon, but I just want to have everything clean and organized and ready to go. All of his clothes are washed (with the best smelling baby laundry detergent - we're obsessed with the Laundress), his changing area is ready and the only other thing we reaaaaaally need to do is get my car cleaned out (damn dog!) and install the car seat. 

We had our wallpaper lady come yesterday to install the wallpaper in the nursery closet, so today I'm planning on painting the trim around the interior door in the closet and B will install the closet rod so I can hang up baby's tiny adorable clothes. I have to say that I'm obsessed with the wallpaper. We bought it when we first found out I was pregnant so we've had it for a while. I went back and forth though trying to figure out if I really liked it/it would go with our decor. I bought a bunch of other samples of wallpaper but in the end I said screw it... let's stick with the original and I'm so glad we did!

Other than nursery stuff, I focused on cleaning the upstairs on Saturday and I deep cleaned the kitchen on Sunday. Our master bed got delivered on Saturday and B set it up yesterday (you can see the footboard up against the wall in the photos above... I'll get better pics of it this week). We plan on painting it... we were going to paint it black but we may paint it something different and fun. Again, lots of paint choices need to be picked out still, but clearly I have baby on the brain so all I can think about is the nursery, haha. 

Anyways, our furnaces and AC get installed today and I have errands and things to do. Hope you all enjoy this series... it's fun for me to just babble and talk about all of the things that have been going on in an informal way.
