So, you may or may not know that we’re expecting kiddo #3 this fall. It’s not that we’ve been hiding it per se (I mean, third baby; I was practically popping at conception), it has just come to my attention that I haven’t really been sharing the experience on (cool) progeny.  It wasn’t intentional… it’s just flown by so quickly! I literally blinked and we’re 8 weeks and counting to baby M’s arrival!

Had you asked me a few weeks ago how far along I was, I would have said ‘the beginning of my third trimester.’ With the Bug, I knew — to the day — how far along I was and whether or not she was the size of a kiwi or lemon or melon. With the Lion Man, I at least knew the week. This time, hello blur. Until 9 weeks. Along with the swollen feet, middle of the night baby-jam-kicking sessions, and heartburn came the sudden realization that things were getting real. And a certain kick in the rear to start moving on preparations.

We have a crib. We have a dresser. We have some bedding. We have this idea of an aqua/coral/yellow color scheme. A daybed is set to arrive tomorrow (note to self: buy pillows). I made my mom promise to hold me accountable to ordering new blinds and window treatments. It’s the beginning of a nursery.  And it might just be done before Baby M gets here.

Fab Find: Flying the Skies Mobile

What’s next? A mobile of course!

I just happened to stumble across this whimsical number from Authentic Mobiles at Wee Chic today. {Have you stopped by their new space at Green Spring Station?? They have brought in a ton of fun baby and nursery gear!}. The flying skies mobile is perfect for our space.  Not too girly, gorgeous design, and it doubles as a work of art. I love that it’s a bit kitschy while still being classy.

What do you think? Definitely a fab find.

I’ll be sure to post pics once we get it up in the nursery! I can’t wait to see what it looks like! {Be sure to follow on Instagram for all of the nursery progress…}
