Playing in Emmi's Room.

 Here is Emmi. She is getting big. Approximately 4 lbs 5 oz according to the ultrasound I had on Wednesday.
I am feeling pretty ready for her to come out and meet the family face to face.
My pelvis and knee have never been more painful. Alas, since we are only planning on having 2, I will try to enjoy this incubating time.

P.S. this is 34 wks and 2 dys
I really need to dig out my camera and stop using my phone to take photos. In real life this looks so great. The picture with the iphone did nothing to capture the reality.
These adorable birds were hand painted my Emmi's Great Aunty Liana. I love them. The colors pop so perfectly on these walls.
 I purchased these at Urban Barn in Kelowna for $25.99 and was later informed by my friend Nat that Walmart has the exact same ones for $14.99. Grrr... I hate to miss a deal.
Walmart is on the other side of town though to me so I just don't really think about going there ever.
I am however very happy with how they look.
 Perfect snow white bedding. I love this look. I can't wait for the decal that I am still impatiently waiting for. Come on USPS!
 I made these curtains from a snow white blackout panel. Aside from the wrinkles I love how it turned out. Especially since I followed no pattern and literally made up each step as I went...now to get the other panel to patch.
 I pinned it while it was hanging to get an idea of what I wanted it to look like.
I really like the satin ribbon and what it adds to the room. Satin seems so classy. I got to figure out how to get rid of the wrinkles. Iron is too hot for this polyester fabric.

Here is Elliott as sweet and wonderful as always.

This afternoon she was a bit off because she must be getting new teeth. I say this because there has to be a reason for her moodiness as she is rarely moody.
My delightful little daughter.

Can't wait to have 2!


  1. I can't believe how much breakfast she ate - good like keeping those last blueberries away from her!

  2. You need a steamer to get the wrinkles out. I can't remember exactly if that's what it's called though. Or maybe even hang up the curtains in the bathroom and turn it into a steam room with a hot shower going? Anyways, those or my suggestions :)

  3. Ya I thought of that bathroom thing. I'll have to try it unless I can find someone to borrow a steamer from?
