Tadah!

Little O’s room has pretty much been a store room, until yesterday.

The delivery men from Ikea turned up with the main storage pieces and suddenly Hubba & I were in full Nesting mode. We were cleaning, unpacking and basically getting very excited about the little one’s arrival. I think we’ve pretty much gotten the essentials, except things like Baby Lotions and such.


Without having bought any clothes for her yet, save for a souvenir t-shirt from Australia on my last work trip, I really don’t know how on earth she’s managed to get a total of 20 Onesies in her clothes collection already?!! Such loving friends and family, we have, really.

Rosco and Sally seemed to love the room. I can just see the boy guarding our little girl as she sleeps and Sally lazing on the adult bed during the days. It’s going to be such a fun adventure with my fur kids around – And no, I am not getting rid of them (as some have asked or suggested)! They are her siblings and I believe she will love them very much indeed! They can kiss her all over the face, as far as I’m concerned, it’s fine with me! :)

After we’d set everything up, Hubba and I went out and celebrated over pizza and a contraband glass of red. We just felt so happy, it was indescribable. So I came home and wrote my little girl a letter.

10 more weeks to go now. Egad!!!!

    Oooo..! We have the same wall applique in our nursery! When she was a teeny baby, she would stare at the animals for long stretches when left on her own in her cot.

    hey janice, great cosy room for the bub! it’s really good to know she’s gonna grow up with doggies and experiencing loads of love. but just be mindful as babies/kids can be rather sensitive to fur and may lead to asthma.

      Thanks Sabrina. I’m asthmatic too, it depends of course if the baby is born with it or grows into it. I grew into it but my family has a background with it. We’ll be fine :) Thanks!
