I am alive!! Promise!

caroline-in-the-slingOh my heavens, newborns are time consuming!!

I am here, I am functioning & I am shooting away! HOWEVER, I haven’t processed hardly anything to share yet! The way I see it, is that I MUST enjoy my baby girl while she is this tiny because I will have plenty of time to process pictures later. Then, I can adore her tiny feet all over again!

Her nursery is coming along…slooooowly but surely. The stencil finally arrived today. My dad painted all the walls while he was here; he is a PRO at painting-it looks phenomenal. I ended up painting with Ralph Lauren’s Mt. Ranier. And, twist her arm, my mom will be making another trip out to help with the stenciling of the pink damask pattern.

I was able to score some beautiful pink & white linen Pottery Barn curtains (at a steal of a price & in perfect condition!) on ebay to help complete the room. Yesterday I spent her afternoon nap “customizing” them…because…well, that’s what I do. :D Only the best for my girl! Hopefully I can add the blackout liner today.

I also decided that her bumper needs bigger hot pink bows, so in the next couple of days, I will be replacing all the little ties with bigger ones. A girl simply cannot have enough pink, bows or polka dots in her bedroom. Oh no she can’t!!

Okay, I hear a little one squeaking in the other room & she beats the computer when it comes to getting my attention. I promise, I will be back with more images soon, but being a mommy absolutely comes first right now. I am certain you all will understand!

Oh, and because every post is better with a picture, this is how we are functioning! I happened to stumble upon this Peanut Shell sling at marshalls for cheap, cheap & later learned it was quite a steal! (I am the ultimate bargain shopper!!) However, I swear by the Moby wrap. It is magic! Not that Miss Caroline is a crier, because really, she hardly cries at all, squeaks mostly, but this thing is so soothing to her! I highly recommend it!
