slowly...

That's my favourite pace at the moment. I'm now 35 weeks & movement is slow & well thought out. It sure is a far cry from 9 weeks ago, when I was running around & breaking bones.
We're slowly putting the room together for our little one. A mix of handmade, second hand, hand me downs, gifts, treasures from our childhood & 1940's furniture.
A group of items are congregating on top of the robe until they find their place :: Old golden books & winnie the pooh books found at markets :: Books given by beautiful sister & friend :: Yoshitomo Nara bookends :: Toys made by the mama :: Bunnykins set & duck cup from Samuel's childhood :: Lark ball from Nana & Grandad :: & other various ephermera.
And over on the bed, sit's a gorgeous little bear made by the wonderful Jess. I can not get over how amazing this little guy is. If you ever want something special to give to a little person in your life... a bear by Jess is definitely the go. I can't recommend her highly enough.
He's hanging out with Victor, who was given to me when I was born.

We've still got a bit to go, but progress is happening & it's really starting to come together. I'll have to post some photos when it is all complete.

SLOWLY is a great word to put up all around the house to keep reminding yourself that it's the way to go.
So very happy for you and hubby expecting your first child - good time, challenging times and a catch up with you is in order when our kids are about 12 weeks old!! ok??
