This weekend, just a few days shy of 38 weeks, we got a little dressed up and headed out for a few maternity pictures. I recently photographed a family session at a nearby public gardens and I knew it would be the perfect spot for maternity pictures for baby #2.
I haven’t posted a single update for this pregnancy and I feel really bad. Not necessarily for any of you readers but mostly for our little one! Who knows how long I’ll continue to blog but I don’t want this little baby to feel neglected when she reads through my blog to see several updates throughout Peyton’s pregnancy but only one – at 32 weeks! – of her pregnancy. So this might be a lengthy post but stick with it! If you’re interested. :)
We moved Peyton out of the nursery at the end of March. She’s now in what was the guest room but is now her big girl room! It’s bigger than the nursery – more room for her toys and playing! – and it’s farther away from our room – which makes no difference, really, because I think our walls are made of paper.
I was completely against the idea of moving Peyton at first. We decorated that room for her and I didn’t want to take it away from her. But the idea of having a baby in a bigger room didn’t make sense. So I agreed it would be best to move her. I was nervous she wouldn’t transition well (I was dreading multiple middle of the night wake ups) but she didn’t have a single problem.
I came home from Indiana with my mom’s sewing machine and a bolt of Winnie the Pooh fabric at the beginning of February. I spent a few hours one Saturday afternoon picking fabric to coordinate with the Winnie the Pooh fabric and started my journey to make a quilt for our baby girl coming in June.
I used this cute hipster baby quilt as my inspiration. I like the more modern look with the large rectangles of fabric and the simple stitching.

Forest and I have another March Madness bet!
Peyton is moved into her new room! She transitioned really well (in regards to sleeping in there) and I have a post on the way for an update on the decorating!
I joined the world of fantasy baseball, and the season started Sunday!

- Keep kitchen island clear of clutter.
Until next time — Cindy
Saturday is April! And although the saying is “April showers bring May flowers”, Mother Nature got a head start on the April showers. Yesterday was sunny, though, and we took full advantage of being outside!
A grandpa at Tuesday’s story time at the library has the cutest grandson, he’s about 2 months younger than Peyton, and he knows all of his letters. I was curious how he learned them all but was too shy to ask. He must have been reading my mind, however, because he mentioned to me that he watches the tv show on PBS called Super Why! I set our DVR to record a few episodes. Peyton doesn’t get a lot of tv/screen time (even though she asks to watch a ‘mov’, aka movie, all the time) but there are some days that we do so we’ll try this show!
