Our special baby boy’s bedroom x

IMG_9757

Our little baby boy is a few days away from making his grand entrance into our world, I can just feel it. Soon we become a family of four!! I wanted to get this post up before that happens because so many of you have been asking about what I am doing to the room and I couldn’t wait to share it. Thank you for your interest and for showing us so much love and support.

Jordan has a traditional nautical bedroom. I wanted to do something very classic for him, it just felt so right. This time around I am really feeling the neutral colours and textures so I decided to do something a little bit more natural and earthy and I love it. For some people, putting so much love and effort into a bedroom might not be a priority and that’s okay. For me it’s so important (read essential) to create a beautiful space for someone I love. A space that feels considered and a space that gives you the happies when you walk in. It truly is one of my favourite things to do. The room is such a peaceful, calming and happy space. I will also be spending so much time in this little munchkins room, feeding, changing etc.. I really wanted a serene space that also makes my heart warm when I walk in.

My busy life. Toddlers, starting school & the arrival of a new baby.

IMG_0378_2_rGosh but life is busy. Life with a toddler, a pregnancy and a demanding job.. is busy. Hence my silence on the blog. I quite literally have just not had the time or energy to sit down and write between all my work, family and social commitments! I cannot believe that I am already 36 weeks pregnant, barely surviving in this heat. Still very much working and keeping myself occupied. I think that this little boy will be arriving sooner than anticipated. I am not quite sure where the time has gone but I am sure the end of the year / beginning of year madness has something to do with that. CatchUp6 My Pregnancy. In the beginning of this pregnancy I was told that my placenta is positioned very low. I was told this by more than one specialist. The condition is known as Placenta Previa – it happens when you fall pregnant and your placenta attaches in the wrong place. My gynae (Steffi Hinz) told me that she could only really check if my placenta has moved at 36 weeks and most of them do move but you never know. If the placenta has moved, then I can have a normal delivery as I did with Jordan. If it hasn’t moved, I will be booked in for a C-section. Steffi can only really check the position of the placenta properly by doing an internal scan which might aggravate things which will result in me having to birth this baby immediately. BUT we have to check because if the placenta hasn’t moved, going into labour naturally and having contractions could be quite dangerous. Today is my scan, at 12:15pm. In short, this baby boy might be born into the world.. today! I am all kinds or nervous and excited and cannot wait to welcome this little bundle into our lives. I trust Steffi implicitly and know that we couldn’t be in better hands. My special Jordy.

Jordy has never been a particularly great sleeper at all. At the moment this is probably a good thing as we are SO ready for newborn nights. I just cannot believe how time flies when you’re so busy busy busy. I am slowly wrapping my head around having a second baby, the time has just escaped me and I feel like I haven’t had any time to even think much about it or ‘reflect’. Jordan is still my baby and I cannot imagine (at all) what it’s going to be like having two! In the past few weeks I have also become increasingly aware of how little time I have left with my Jords alone.
