I have always loved this time of year. Putting away all the holiday decorations, cleaning and organizing your space, and looking forward to what lies ahead.
When I think about what is in store for us this year, my heart skips a beat. Baby Boy Elie #2 is due in just a few short weeks! We are about to begin work on his nursery. I've already been crafting and have some wall art made, but want to wait until it's hanging to share. His room colors are going to be green and navy. Here are a few pics of inspiration.
It's so exciting and scary to think about our Baby Truman becoming a big brother! I know he will be a great big brother- but I do worry about how he will feel with a new little guy in the house. He is still so small and needs us so much, I struggle when thinking about meeting his needs and the needs of a newborn. I know we will all adjust, but it will take a little time. Just Mama worries I guess. In the mean time- we are busy getting our house ready for our newest little member. I will be buying a crib/ changing table/ and dresser from a friend which is a huge help!! His bedding has been ordered and the curtains are on the way :) It will come together in no time.
Other exciting things in store for us this year is our first family trip to Florida! Chris's brother and his family have been there for a couple of years. We have tried to go before but the timing just hasn't worked out. They have never met Truman, so when we go this time, we will have 2 little people for them to meet! That is planned for the end of May, the little one should be around 8 weeks old for our trip :)
An exciting year of birthdays are ahead too! Our Yorkie's, Heidi and Cali will be 3 this month. Chris will be 39 at the end of March, which translates into I need to start planning his 40th for next year right about now!! And our little Truman will be 2 in July! Where is time going :) He has changed so much in the last few months. His hair is seriously curlier and longer than I ever imagined it would be!! I know we are venturing closer to his first haircut, but I don't want to think about it! I think we can get by a little longer and I LOVE his curls!! He is 17 months old now and more fun each and every day. That boy is non stop, we got him a bird feeder for Christmas. It's hanging outside our living room window. He loves it so much! It was such an easy and inexpensive gift, but I think one that will be enjoyed for years to come. He already knows where the "birdies" are and takes off running to the window anytime they are mentioned. SO sweet!!
We are ready for 2015! Crossing our fingers that we will be blessed with health and happiness for another year. Cheers to you all!
