Nursery Sneak Peek- Bring on the Girl!

In a world where we can Google questions and get answers in a split second, "When is the baby going to come?" is still a remaining unknown-- which is exciting, but I'm still ready to get this show on the road! I'm due May 5th, and while I actually feel better in this home stretch than I have in any of the my other pregnancies, I can't help but want to just have this little girl in my arms already. 

Of course there are some mixed feelings, giving birth is a little scary after all, but I'm mostly excited about it. If things go half as well as they did with William's birth-- I'll be happy. And he was a nine pounder! I love hearing different birth stories, and can't wait to see how this one will go!

We plan on this being our last baby, so I plan on being a sap and savoring every single stage. So even though I'm impatient, I'm also trying to enjoy the last kicks in this big belly of mine. 

Henry was my summer baby, William was my Fall baby, and this one is my Spring baby. I feel like I'm really in tune with nature this time around-- so far we've had two batches of bunnies, and baby geese hatch around the house. At the kids' preschool, the chicks have hatched. The question now is whether or not I beat our resident duck couple to the finish line.

Everything is ready. The nursery is ready, the baby clothes are washed, and the house is as clean as it's going to get with two tornadoes running around (I've given up bending over 1,000 times a day to pick up everything that winds up on the floor.)

Here's a peek at the nursery. It's pretty clear I need some training on taking quality pictures. Also you'll notice, after two boys... I went all out on the girly theme!
Obsessed with that pineapple lamp (Target) And I had to cover one of the canvases, which reveals her name. The other reads: Be Bold. Be Brave. Be Brilliant. And the large gray one reads: She believed she could so she did. And a special thank you to my friend Susie for the adorable glider!

I made the ribbon garland. So much more ribbon than you'd think! Diaper Pad Cover "Flower Show" from Land of Nod (matching sheet in crib.) Back up set of diaper pad cover and crib sheet in "Marine Queen." (better images in those links!) Hamper and Lamp from Target. I'm still looking to add something to this wall...

Mark doesn't like hanging things above the crib, so we went with these gold circle decals which he REALLY ENJOYED putting up with me.

Ignore everything in the crib. Hospital bag and boppy are ready to go! This is probably also the best representation of the peach color on the walls-- which I give total credit to Mark for picking out. It's the perfect shade!
Did I mention I have a recent obsession with Pineapples? Pineapple Print from Urban Outfitters.
Rise and Shine print from The Wheatfield. 
Initial hint in this picture! And I love this bookshelf from Pottery Barn Kids. We put the mirror here to try and catch some of the light coming in from the only window in the room. The knobs are holding headbands for now, but I envision necklaces in the future :)
Wildflower Print from The Wheatfield. Floral Prints from Kristy Rice.
Dreamcatcher made by me with Hazel and Ruby Dreamcatcher Kit. (I plan on making more!)
Blanket Basket from Target.

This floral arrangement was a gift from my parents at our wedding (It matched our wedding flowers, but will last forever!) The candleholders were also from our wedding. I'm glad we could work these into the baby's room, because it's not really our style for the rest of the house!
So come on, baby girl! Come out to play!

In the meantime, dear readers... won't you distract me with your birth stories?
