You know.. I’m so into baby stuffs right now, like nursery decorations, clothes, toys, whatever... I just wonder where that came from??!! Oh right, I’m growing a little baby myself! :) I’ve always thought baby’s were cute, even kids...since that’s prob. why I decided to work with them. But now-a-days newborn baby’s are EVEN CUTER. Can you imagine, well I can!! Yesterday one of the moms at daycare came to pick her son and she brought her 5 weeks old baby girl with her.. . I think she thought I was nuts, cause as soon as the she started crying, I pick her from her stroller and started cuddling with her... I was like, ‘in love for the first time’ !! haha But luckily I saw, that the mom was ok with it and saw she was thinking..’ it’s probably the hormones!’ LOL
Today marks 18 weeks and here’s what they say about the development about our little Dot...
Your Pregnancy: Week 18
Now that you're in the full throes of the second trimester, you're feeling—and looking—fabulous. So don't waste it! See friends (they've missed you since you moved your bedtime up to 7:00 p.m.), plan romantic dinners with your partner (you will miss those when junior arrives) and get active. Waterskiing might be a little too much but swimming and taking long walks are great for you and your bambino.
Your baby's ears are now facing forward and are completely formed so she can actually hear you talking now. You don't need to abandon your potty mouth just yet, but you might want to start thinking about it! Other highlights this week:
This week is also the beginning of ossification. And while that sounds like some long and involved paperwork you'll have to fill out, it's really a fancy medical term for the hardening of your baby's miniature bones. And that's a good thing.
Your baby's nerves are making more and more complex connections. Her sense of smell, taste, sight and hearing are all developing. A substance called myelin, which makes nerve connections travel faster, is now coating your baby's nerves.
Your baby now weighs between 5 and 7 ounces and is about 5½ inches long—about the size of a pickle from the corner deli. (You're familiar with pickles, right? Your regular accompaniment to a big bowl of ice cream?)
---- NOTICING the fact they’re talking about a SHE and ‘HER sense’... Does this mean it’s going to be a girl??!! hihi. Well according to my, my dad’s & my cousins feelings... who actually got it right most of the times, we think it IS A GIRL! But we’re not going to find out till August 3rd! Yeaah, my guy finally (or I probably convinced him, we just needed to know! LOL) decided he wants to know the sexe of the baby... But we did decided to keep it between the two of us (Like I can??!! LOL), but yeah that’s the deal... I can tell my BFF, cause a girl just has to tell someone, right?
Now onto the baby stuffs...
I’ve got tons of ideas to decorate the nursery (babyroom), but there’s too much to choose from, it’s getting hard. But before I’m going to make a final decision on the theme and such, I want to know what the sexe of the baby will be... And of course, we still need to find a new house to make the nursery in. But I’m sure we’ll manage and if not, we’ll stay here for a while longer! *sigh*
Wall stickers... Are defenitly my favorites when decoratiing the nursery...or really any part of our house. You can find these in any color, any theme, any size and I think they are truly adorable to place on the nursery wall. Some exsamples I truly love (with links)...
These are pretty particular for Boys or Girls, which are so cute, but then these are probably ones, you’ll get enough of easily... But I also love these simple, more natury, more stylish ones... and you can pick out the colors for like the birds, leaves & trees yourself...
From designed designer on Etsy
I love the blossom trees, but also love flowery ones... big tress with leaves and such. I’ll tell you it’s hard to pick just one. But maybe, since the plan is to move anyways... I’ll get different ones, including ones for our bedroom :)
Then there’s pretty art prints, patterned wallpapers and what about these cute mobile’s...Made with paper or felt... available in different themes like these owl’s, hearts, birds, butterflies and much more....
I found these on Etsy.com... That site is truly inspiring when it comes to DIY projects. I mean, don’t go there to copy-cat brilliant ideas these people have. But it’s a great inspiration for making anything. And most things aren’t that expensive either and it saves tons of time when people already done it for you, right??!! :)
So peeps, I think that was it and the inspiational baby stuffs for today... I do want to share one FUN party announcement today...
So if you’re ready for a party, hop on over to after five designs... Summer is coming to an end, and we are celebrating the close of the season with a month-long block party!!! The fun starts today till August 15th and there will be different activities each week, like: challenges, sales, contest and lots more... Go check it out!!
Have a great day and will see you soon! –xx-
