Dear baby,
while me and your daddy wait {and wait and wait and wait} to meet you and bring you home, I am making our little apartment home sweet home esk just for you...

We've decorated the living room and the kitchen.. all that's left is what will be your bathroom... and while I don't know whether you'll be a boy or a little lady, I do know that cute is cute no matter what.  And so, this is what your bathroom will look like....

The rug:

And these are the fabulous prints I got to hang {{I am head over heals in love}}:

{This one is called Home is where you take it. How darling is that? Because it's true baby, no matter where we live, home will always be where the ones you love are.}

{{From Laura Amiss . Have I explained to you yet the wonders of etsy? I will. And you will love it as much as me...}}


{{ From Antheropologie}}

and now dear sweet baby, I am on my way to buy paint for the walls cause your daddy says I may paint! One wall is all he says I may cover. {{But what happens if I buy enough for the whole bathroom? Hmmm, we shall see...}}

I love you my sweet baby. And not a day goes by that I don't hope and pray for the day we shall meet. It will be soon. I just know it. I can feel it in my bones. Before you know it I will be giving you bubble baths, and wrapping you in big fluffy towels each night. And, once you are dressed in comfy pajamas with pretty patterns mommy will kiss you from head to toe. I shall read you a bedtime story, {or three, or four} and rock you to sleep in my arms. And then I will kiss you goodnight once more.

In fact baby, I will cuddle you and hug you so much that sometimes you may get sick of it. But just know, I am making up for lost time. I love you.

I am crushing on...{{and finding it oh so difficult to concentrate!}}

{{by Maileg}}

...custom made families to look like your family. I must admit, I almost died when I found these they are sooo perfect. 

Lovin' this art ..

..and wanting very badly a danish modern rocking chair....

{{that I would re fabric in a lovely mustard yellow. perfect for boy or girl, and most importantly my favorite element of a baby room..  perfect for rocking my little one to sleep every night. Perfect for reading stories. Pretty much, perfect in every way.. }}


What are you crushing on today?

Tio and Tia

Dear baby,

This week you got presents in the mail from your Tio Vince and Tia Riss. {{and in case you didn't know baby, presents in the mail are the very best kind!}} I was going to wait for you to get home before I opened them, but to be honest baby, I couldn't wait. And I'm so glad I didn't. You are going to love them! {{and when you get home I shall wrap all the presents of our I have opened and you'll never know I opened them..until you can read of course...}}

But back to your present baby.. they got you the cutest little elephant and giraffe ever. They are made in Australia, adorable and organic. And even though I have a box in the closet for your things, they are still on the sideboard in the dining room and they may just stay there until you come home to me...they are just too cute to box up.

One last thing baby, we have decided that you and all your cousins will say Tio and Tia instead of Aunt and Uncle. It just sounds so much more endearing to all of us, and we like endearing very very much.. {{I hope you won't mind..}}

I love you baby.

Hugs and kisses,



{{your oh so darling presents}} you can purchase here
