Our Adventure Awaits themed Nursery

Before we got pregnant we knew we wanted a blue nursery with clouds, it was set in stone. Planes for boys, hot air balloons for girls – Done! So that part was easy setting it up was the hard part – considering the planes and balloons we liked we saw in New Orleans…

This was our vision

We had a lot of work to do to make it meet our vision, but we both are pretty happy with the end result, Paddy hasn’t really told us yet if he likes it! But all the other little people in our lives seem to think that he does!

We painted the room ourselves and CJ’s mum painted the clouds – you can see how she did that here

Paddy’s adventure themed room

Paddy grown so much he has started this week sleeping in his cot in his room! He no longer fits in the bassinet in our room, he is 8 weeks old so I had a good run (I did contemplate moving his cot into our room.) But Paddy loves his room so much he sleeps better in there, so there he will stay ;-(

The last 6 weeks

So 6 weeks ago on Friday something interesting happened – I had a Baby!!! So something more than interesting – amazing, beautiful, life changing. So i apologise if i have been off line.  Having a baby kind of trumps my little blog.  And I’m not going to lie having a new born isn’t easy!

Anyway introducing our beautiful Paddy

The day Paddy was born, back in our room

After being told he was a whopper and measuring 42 weeks at 34 weeks, he was only 6 pounds 13 ounces, or 3 kg.  But adorable, and now i just spend my days looking at him and feeding him and trying to make bargains with him about having a day time nap! (I may of already promised Disneyland!)

Paddy is our gift!

But he has been is worth all the pee, vomit and poo on me (which is daily) and then when he snuggles in like a little koala with that sweet baby smell and all is forgotten!  The last 6 weeks have been a blur, but it is totally with it, it just takes a while for the anxiety to calm down and you believe that you actually can take care of the littlest human you have ever seen that is totally dependant on you!
