wallflowers

here is the second attempt at flowers for audrey’s room.  the first try were colored flowers, no outlines.  from that i have narrowed down the idea..i want doodle-like flowers.  it is what was in my mind the whole time i was pregnant for a name or something on the wall.  now i just can’t decide if i am satisfied with this grouping or if i just want to do a daisy (like far left) then one different flower in the middle and another daisy.  help!  please tell me what you people that read this think…too busy, add color, just three flowers, or keep it like it is.  i can’t seem to make up my mind.  big surprise!

some words for thought

story of a bumped head (and more importantly feeling better about it)

on monday afternoon we had gotten home from getting shots and audrey was a bit fussy.  so i was taking her outside because usually that is the best thing to make her happy.  well on the way out of the front door, while trying to keep the dog inside and the paci from dropping and the burp cloth over my shoulder, i bumped audrey’s head on the door.  it didn’t seem to phase her but of course it worried me.  i kept feeling it to see if it was swollen or if me touching it seemed to hurt her.  i felt terrible.  who runs their baby into the door?  great mama right?  mark got home and he reassured me.  i think his exact words were “she’s not porcelin,” but still i felt, checked and thought about it a lot.

well, yesterday i told mama about it happening.  i must admit a little reluctantly…afterall, my mother can take care of babies better than anyone i know.  she’s some kind of no-fail super mama.  sometimes i wonder if she’s more equipped than me.  (and i’ve come to learn this is a normal self-doubt  after talking with other mama friends.  phew, i know)  anyway, she said with no judgement “don’t you just hate when you do that?”  and then, i quit checking and thinking and feeling.  even a super mom must bump a little head a time or two.  i am doing alright…audrey is gonna make it through with her mom in training.

making it girly…maybe

i am thinking of doing a little bit of a change for audrey’s room.  i think somewhere in the back of my mind i knew that if i had a girl (or boy for that matter) that i would want a more gender specific room.  i did know that.  afterall, some fabric almost made me find out what the baby was.  (i love not knowing though…and wouldn’t change that for any decortating)  but now, i do want audrey to have a little bit more girlish room.  so today, after a lot of brainstorming, and on the second try, i went to lowe’s and played around with some ideas to add, without much cost and effort, a more girly touch to her room.  i was thinking of painting over the tree and painting several big big coloring book with black outlining style flowers on the wall.  but i think i will have the same dilema…feeling like it’s a theme.  i am not a theme kinda gal!  so for now the idea is still to paint over the tree, paint the shelf gray, do some pink fabric covered storage boxes for the shelves and think about a flower or two…hmm.  i am in serious brainstorm mode.  did i mention the foyer paint samples and green for the kitchen???
