Maternity Pictures!

Here are a few of my favorite maternity pictures taken by the very talented Jamie Clauss with Count It Joy Photography! If you live near Huntsville I highly recommend her!

We loved every single one of our pictures! It was so hard to narrow down our favorites!

Next up will be newborn pictures! 

39 Weeks

This is my last bump picture! I can't believe it! 
We go to the hospital Tuesday night to be induced! Prayers are appreciated!

Can't wait to meet our precious baby girl!

Ivy is the size of a watermelon!

My first bump picture at 12 weeks and the last one at 39 weeks! What a HUGE difference! Can't believe I was able to wear the same shirt for every picture!

Ivy's Nursery

The nursery is complete! We put a lot of love and work into this room and I am so excited to share the finished product!

To get the exact look I was going for I made a lot of the decor myself. The drapery panels, crib skirt, pillows, changing pad cover, canvas crate insert, bird mobile, and artwork were all diy projects.

  • The floral prints are from Rifle Paper Co.
  • The pallet art was a diy project that I made a while ago.
  • And I spelled out her name using cardboard letters from Hobby Lobby that I painted light pink.
I found this pink ombre pillow at Target on sale for $8!

This ceramic farmers market basket from Anthropologie is perfect for holding pacifiers! The pretty coaster is also from Anthropologie.

Obsessed with this blabla doll!  Suzette the fox!

When I found this fabric I knew I had found my color scheme! Carpet Ride in Radish

 My mom found this cute pillow at Christmas Village in Birmingham and the vintage-style stuffed animal deer is by Maileg.

This bird mobile was another DIY project! It was inspired by this bird mobile from Restoration Hardware. I found instructions to make the birds on Spool, but putting it together with stained dowels, fishing line, and hook screws was just trial and error. I seriously almost gave up several times trying to get it to balance just right, but I finally figured it out!

  • I painted both the "darling" painting and the bee painting on wood boards. 
  • The brass rocking horse was in my nursery
  • The vintage globe was about to be thrown out before my mom rescued it! She knows my style!
  • The alphabet blocks in the apothecary jar is another diy that I have already shared on the blog.
  • And those are my baby shoes!

The drapery fabric is Tahitian Stitch in Sunshine.

 I found this cute basket at HomeGoods to hold all of the beautiful handmade blankets Ivy was given!

Jake thinks having the 3D picture of Ivy framed is creepy, haha! I plan on replacing it with a newborn picture!

I found my changing table at Easy Street Resales in Pelham.  It was actually made to be a potters bench but its uniqueness and size was exactly what I was looking for! We added the shelf for extra storage, and my dad built the crate so we can quickly grab diapers. And don't worry the changing pad has tabs that we screwed to the table so it is secure!

I followed these easy instructions to make the changing pad cover. The fabric is Chipper in Eaton Blue/Linen by Premier Prints.

I sent my dad these instructions to make the wood crate and I sewed the canvas insert.

The light fixture is the convertible wire pendant from Urban Outfitters.

We move into our new home in a couple of months, but I still wanted to completely set up the nursery here! The only thing I didn't get to do was paint the walls.

Once we move I will share the updated version of the nursery.  It should pretty much look the same except for the wall color and the room layout.

Baby Shower

A couple of months ago my friends threw me the most perfect baby shower! The theme was Bless This Nest and it was decorated beautifully! They even had some of the foods I have been craving throughout my pregnancy! So thoughtful! 

Here are some of the pictures my talented sister took of the special day!

All of my sweet hostesses!

Ivy's aunts!

We had to document our growing bumps!
