Breaking the Mold

Learning to be who God made me to be

Nesting — June 24, 2015


So our baby girl is making her arrival in about 11 weeks! WOW! I say about because neither of our boys came on time (Benji was 15 days late and Isaac was 7 days late). So I’m not expecting her to come on time either. We’re due September 6th and were SO excited to find out that we’ll be having a girl, but MAN! All the little differences of having a girl vs. a boy! We have been overwhelmed with friends’ and family’s generosity already and I can’t imagine what it will be like after she arrives!

With the realization that I have no idea what to do with a girl after having 2 boys, I quickly made my way to Pinterest to find ideas. I wanted something that was girly, but not too girly. As the youngest of 5, I like to think I have a pretty good balance of girly and tomboy and I’d like our daughter to as well. I was delighted when I found girl-nursery ideas that weren’t all PINK. Nothing against pink, but purple is my favorite! I combed through hundreds of pins of the next few weeks and finally settled on some that I figured I could actually do. I am NOT a crafty person y’all, so attempt anything is an accomplishment.
