Family, Nursery, Our First Home,

Kennedy 4 Months & Nursery Update

Kennedy is 4 months already!  I can hardly believe it!  It is definitely true what people say, though–hitting 3 months was a huge relief.  She started sleeping better, smiling, “talking”, and now she’s starting to giggle just a bit.  Apparently Alex and I aren’t that funny because she just kind of chuckles at us.

She had her 4 month check up last week and that came with another round of vaccines.  This time she got a fever and it broke my heart.   It wasn’t very high, but she was so sad looking for a bit.

How cute is that picture?  She NEVER rests her head on our chests or shoulders and she did on Alex for just a few seconds–talk about melting my heart.  She had a 100.5 temp…..and then we gave her a little Tylenol.

The Nursery.  Remember my idea board?

The first step was to paint the nursery.

Got that done over 2 days last week.  It took me two coats and 1.5 gallons of paint using Swan White by Glidden.  I’m much happier with this bright white and glad to see the beigeness gone.

I’ve ordered a sample of the wallpaper from Spoonflower and it is supposed to arrive today.  I’m excited to see if it’s going to look as good in person as I picture in my head!

I’ve e-mailed Ashley, the owner of the etsy shop with these darling prints.

I asked her if they could be made any larger than 8×10.  She said she could print them a little bigger, but they’d be double the cost.  I’m still figuring out if I need them to be bigger or not.  I’ll do some taping off on the walls soon to decide which size is best.  If I’ve learned one thing recently it’s that I’d rather save and spend money on bigger pieces than spend a little bit of money over and over again on lots of smaller pieces.  Something about one large piece of art really attracts my eye rather than a bunch of small pieces for this room.

Then there’s this darling little chair I bought at a consignment sale for $2.  She’s getting a new coat of paint in a fun color!

I’m watching for the mailman all day so I can get my wallpaper sample!
