Great Use of Wall Paper and Update:

I love the double duty that this Cole and Son wallpaper plays in this space. It adds visual interest and also disguises the storage cupboards that are nestled under the staircase.  Lovely splashes of colour too!

This shot is a pic from my baby shower which was last weekend. More to come about that very fun day. Anyway, almost a week later, I am in the hospital measuring my contractions and learning that I am in early labor and have begun to dilate. Of course, my first thought was, “But my hubby isn’t here yet!” Baby isn’t due until October 25th either. I am home now waiting to be dilated to 4cm and thank goodness the contractions have eased in intensity. I am able to find the time to write this post because I am now on some sort of bed rest. I say some sort because I am still moving around because I can’t stay in bed all day. My Mom would be wagging her finger at me if she were hereSmile.  Great news though-the hubby is on his way home and if I stay still like a good girl, maybe our little bundle of joy will wait until his Daddy gets home.

  1. Darling, this is exactly what happened to me when I expected Oscar. Only he wanted to exit a whole two months early. I ended up in bed for a whole three weeks until he decided enough was enough and came out anyway.. Healthy and happy though, as I know your beautiful baby will be too!

    Your bump looks gorgeous! :)

    Got the email and can work with that. Bought the paper on Friday and will start the process on Monday..! YAY!
    Will send you the freight cost during the week.

    Big hugs, rest up and STAY IN BED!!!

    Lots of love and hugs

  7. OMG YOU ARE FABULOUS NO MATTER WHAT! Wait....first things first...that wall paper is outrageously beautiful. I love peridot green. THEN your jewelry, then YOUR BELLY and you are so tiny!!!! IF I WERE PREGNANT, my hips would be bigger than my belly! And I would be the first woman to look like she is carrying the baby at the DERRIÈRE! TU ES SUPERBE! And dearest, let us pray that baby waits 'til daddy gets home! What wonderful news my friend. THANK YOU FOR VISITING me while you are doing bed rest duty!

    Can't wait to hear more news!!! Anita

  10. How can any body look that glamorous by the end of their pregnancy??? You are amazing.

    Hope you can stay put till hubby arrives! I had to stay in bed when pregnant with my first son, when I went into early labour at 4 months. Ooh! It was SO hard to stay put - I just wanted to run around like my usual mad chook self.

    My fingers and toes are all crossed for you hoping that all goes well. Virginia xx
