I am back with an update – it may very well be a long one but I do promise lots of pictures!!!!

I do apologise for not being around that much, but I have so been enjoying this pregnancy and weekends have been full of nothing much but lazing around and catching up on some much needed rest.

I am today exactly 33wks pregnant – only 7 more to go – bub is moving up a storm inside and it is such an amazing feeling to know that it is growing well.

I had another scan on Thursday last week. It was done as at my 20wk scan my pesky placenta – as I know call it – was low. It was a great opportunity to see bub again. He/she is sooo cute. looks so much like a little person and is perfect size for gestation.  Sadly though my pesky placenta is still not cooperating and is still sitting a incy weency bit low – 5mm to be exact – we don’t really have all the facts yet but should know more tomorrow as we have a specialist ob oppointment – so watch this space for another update.

Baby Photos – 32wk scan

That is bub’s foot over it’s nose!!! This made me laugh…he/she must be so squished in there.

Cute little side profile – love the nose and lips – can’t wait to see them IRL!!!

Front view – how beautiful is that chin!!!

Getting Crafty

We visited some local markets a few weeks ago and one stall had these really cute outfits for toddlers so I was inspired to have a go at replicating something similar for our little one.

I just bought some little Bonds onsies from Big W and used some left over material from decorating the nursery and I’m really happy with how they turned out.


I have been wanting to share our nursery with you for a while but I have been to lazy to be bothered to take any good pics – but finally yesterday I did so here it is in all it’s glory.

Overall View – taken from the door way

My favourite corner –  I re-purposed an old clothes basket we had and covered it in Barnslig fabric from Ikea – it’s probably my favourite thing in the room.

Close up of chair – it is so comfortable!!! The beautiful blanket was hand made by one of my students mothers, the picked the colours without even knowing what our colours were – how perfect is it!!!

Wall storage

Sleeping Corner – we bought the cot second hand and Wyatt covered some panels in fabric and inserted them into the ends of the cot.

Wall Display Thingie – Made by my very talented husband for somewhere to keep little bits and bobs

Toy Box – Again made by my talented husband – I made the cushion for the top – once bub is born and named we are going to put his/her name on the front of the box.

Wardrobe Doors – We painted one of the doors with chalk board paint so that when bub gets older it can draw all over it and for now we can write notes up there as well.

Flag Garland – made by me

Two of my favourite things –

  • hand made booties – I picked these up at the Eumundi markets on a visit to mum and dads. Bub will probably never wear them as it’s to hot here but I just could not resist how cute they were.

  • Hand knitted gnome – my mum has one of these sitting in here kitchen and I admired it when I visited one time so she asked the lady who made it for her to make one for us in our nursery colours….I love it!!!

Our whole nursery scheme/theme is based around the Ikea Barnslig range – we wanted to keep it pretty neutral as we don’t know what we are having and we also wanted it to be a room that would grow with a baby into it’s toddler years. All of the furniture except that which was made we bought from Ikea. We have so loved decorating it and I have loved making and painting bits and pieces to go here and there as well to give it that personal touch.

At the moment this is by far my favourite room in the house!!!!

Well that’s it for today, I’ve wasted enough time on the computer…it’s such a beautiful day here I’m off outside to enjoy it.
