~Pip's Pretty Little Place~

As promised here are some pics of Pip with her new bling...Today I'm thinking it's cute, tomorrow I may not- So, we shall see how long these lovely little earrings last...For now, enjoy...















Taking these pics of her smiling & laughing in her little room, made me so happy...I absolutely adore her nursery - I nested hard over her little space, in a really short amount of time- Turbo nesting I like to call it...We moved across the province when I was 9 months prego, so all my planning for her was done in my head...And then I only had 2 weeks to put it all together before she decided to come early & shake up our world...


Thank God for Pinterest & such lovely ideas...Here's what inspired Pip's room...I guess I could count this as Pin Eighteen- Pip's Little Nursery Inspiration Board...

I made everything you see over her crib, picture me large, ready to pop & in charge, painting & glue gunning it up every night...Her room, especially this one little picture I made will forever hold great significance to me- 


"I walked into it a few days after getting home from the hospital & one of the paintings I had made above her crib read, "Life is beautiful because you are here"...This for some reason brought me to my knees...I cried harder than I ever have in my life...But it also was healing...I left the anger & hurt there in her room & truly got up from my knees feeling that my life, that Noal & Craig's life, that our family & friend's lives will all be brighter & more beautiful because of this special, unique, baby girl..."


That little sign "Life is beautiful because you are here" broke me out of my despair & will be a message Reid will walk hand in hand with her entire life. I will make sure of that...




Before I even had Noal, I knew that one thing I would always want in any of my kiddos room was a piece of art made from my dad...My entire life has been surrounded by my dad's creativity; cards, care packages, murals on my wall when I was a little girl, help making the best projects in school, etc...But, when my dad made this for Noal, I was blown away...It's so very special to me...

For Pip, I wanted something similar, so he made this absolutely adorable piece of art that fits in perfectly with the rest of her room...It really might be my favourite piece yet Dad...




I always knew if I had a girl my favourite colours; teals & greens would be a part of her space...With Pip's room I added purples, pinks & blues & couldn't be happier with how her room turned out...




And then little touches like her foot & hand prints painted on pictures or the little "R" a good friend made for her, all help to make this room feel so very special...







As much as I love her room, I have to be honest with y'all, she hasn't spent much time in there...Okay no time in there really...I co-slept with Noal till he was 9ish months old & loved every second- I don't regret it at all...Getting him to transition to a crib after was "challenging" to say the least but well worth those 9 months of snugs...


With Reid & all her extra issues, like looking for signs of heart failure the first 5 months of her life, there was no way in anything that she wasn't sleeping right beside me...




So, I'm back to having a little snug bug in bed but one day she'll adore her little nursery as much as I enjoyed creating it...
