20 Weeks... the nursery planning begins!


Halfway there already!  Time really does fly by.  My husband and I had the pleasure of seeing our little one for a full hour during my 20 week ultrasound.  Oh ya, and we found out we're having a GIRL!  She's healthy and very active... we couldn't be happier.  :)  We were able to see her little fingers moving, her opening and closing her mouth, and sucking her thumb.  She was kicking like crazy and just completely all over the place.  It's so amazing that all that is going on in my tummy!  I feel her kick every day now, especially at night time.  It has to be one of the most incredible feelings in the world.  My belly just keeps growing and growing and it's become extremely difficult to wear normal clothes now.  There are a few people who are generously going to give me their old maternity jeans, etc, so I don't have to pay $30+ for a pair of jeans.  I mean, within the next few months I'll be wearing summer dresses all the time anyway, I'd hate to waste my money on maternity jeans to only wear them for a few weeks!

Hooray for baby bumps!  I just love it.  Until it's time to go to sleep at night and I can't get comfortable and my husband gets annoyed because I'm flopping around the bed all frustrated.  :)~

Now that we know we're going to have a beautiful, bouncing baby girl it's time to really get started on the nursery.  A couple weekends ago my darling husband put together the crib, changing table, and the glider.  I love them - they're very classic and simple.  And I'm really excited about the glider... I can't wait to be able to rock my baby girl to sleep.  

Our options were very limited being over here in South Korea.  There were only a hand full of choices at the BX, and I was still having a hard time choosing!  With much deliberation, we decided to go with the Graco Lauren Classic Crib Collection, the crib mattress is a Sealy Perfect Rest, and the Graco Avalon Glider & Ottoman (which I don't have pictured) in cherry and it matches the espresso crib & changing table perfectly!

The past few days I've been searching for the perfect bedding set.  I'm having a harder time picking this one out than I did my own!  I put together this little inspiration board...

I'm really loving these colors right now.  But I'm having a hard time finding a bedding that I like that matches what I like.  All these color ideas may change... but for right now..... I am just loving the deep yellows, pinks, and creams with the dark furniture.

Well, it's movie and ice cream time here in my house.. hope everyone has a good week!


  1. that's when you MAKE your own bedding ;) just sayin' ... super easy to make crib sheets and babies don't need very much!

  2. Well then someone has to teach me how to use my sewing machine! ;)


I'd love to hear from you!
